?? Your SSD doesn't have to keep up with your video card, not sure what you mean by that.

PSU is a bit sketchy, CPU cooler is pretty light duty for that CPU. Alternate suggestion:

thanks for the suggestion. i meant to say i want a fast ssd and a fast gpu in this build. im new to diy but i do understand what ur saying thx.

does the 580 rly cut it still tho? im mostly going to be using this for ksp and fortnite and in most of the benchmark vids i was watching the 1060 seemed a better call.

The RX-580 and GTX-1060 are pretty close in terms of power. 1060 will do better for some games, and the 580 for others.
I chose the 580 because its a bit cheaper & offers support for freesync if you go for a higher refresh monitor.

You can get higher frequency RAM with pretty much the same price
