    Budget Build?

    Here's a $320ish keep in mind taxes will also come into play. You can add a pretty solid GPU in the future like a RX 560, and a standard HDD for mass storage.

    Can't the APU alone run Fortnite though? I've seen some benchmarks and it looks like it can no problem with lower settings. OP could always upgrade to a better GPU as well in the future if he wants to run more demanding games.
  4. I cleaned off my list long ago and forgot your steam profile mate. What is it so i can add you back?

    PC Building Urges?

    Back in High School i was trying to get my friends into PC gaming so i could build them a PC... Most stuck with what they got (at least they got steam) or went to consoles.

    Learning resources

    I'm pretty much the opposite lol... Much better with hardware. Best way you can learn really is building one yourself and Paul's Hardware has some pretty good vids.

    2019 - $550ish 1080p Build

    Well the RX 580 was around $189 to start so a bit more but I should be fine with the 570 i don't do anything crazy or care about having my settings maxed out.

    2019 - $550ish 1080p Build

    Heard it still get's slightly better temps and I wanted something white if it ends up being crap though it was only 10 bucks and I have the option of putting that into the old FX-8320 system and taking the Hyper 212 EVO out of that. If i was buying a Ryzen CPU though i would keep the wraith cooler without a doubt which are great.
  10. Well just got all these parts ordered for some basic 1080p gaming. It's a slight upgrade from my current old 2014 system that I will be giving away to bro who will get his own gaming PC, but in which I might have to replace the old GPU and PSU which seem to be on their last legs. I think i did a pretty good job especially in terms of future upgrades - I will add a HDD and more RAM up to 16GB later. The main games I play are CS:GO, GTA V, Planet Coaster, Tropico series, Metro series, and some old NFS games. I also do some very basic editing for videos and ..memes. It should also help get any student work I have done faster with that SSD. The color scheme i went with is "Kinda-white" couldn't get everything matched up perfectly but the Mobo and GPU have RGB which I can make white. I will post pics as well once it's all set up and built this will be my 2nd PC that I'm building so I'm hoping to do much better this time initially when it comes to cable management etc. PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant Type Item Price CPU Intel - Core i3-8100 3.6 GHz Quad-Core Processor $118.99 @ Amazon CPU Cooler Thermaltake - Gravity i2 31.34 CFM CPU Cooler $9.98 @ Amazon Motherboard Gigabyte - B360 HD3 ATX LGA1151 Motherboard $89.84 @ Newegg Memory Crucial - Ballistix Sport LT 8 GB (2 x 4 GB) DDR4-2400 Memory $49.95 @ Amazon Storage Kingston - A400 240 GB 2.5" Solid State Drive $29.99 @ Amazon Video Card Gigabyte - Radeon RX 570 4 GB AORUS 4G Video Card $139.99 @ Newegg Case Fractal Design - Focus G (White) ATX Mid Tower Case $49.98 @ Newegg Power Supply Corsair - CXM 550 W 80+ Bronze Certified Semi-Modular ATX Power Supply $43.98 @ Newegg Prices include shipping, taxes, rebates, and discounts Total (before mail-in rebates) $582.70 Mail-in rebates -$50.00 Total $532.70 Generated by PCPartPicker 2019-03-15 12:12 EDT-0400

    Which RX570 to choose?

    XFX seems to be in the price range but there's different models and Sapphire is beyond the budget
  12. I prefer a white/black color scheme and currently the MSI Armor seems to be the only one with that. There's also the Gigabyte AORUS which has a backplate. Main thing I'm looking for is low temps
  13. 240GB SSD will be good enough for now I don't run many programs. I can stick a 1TB or 2TB HDD in later.
