1. Budget & Location
Trying to stay under $700, not including operating system and peripherals. Located in the U.S.
This system will be used primarily for gaming (eg. pubg, halo online, dark souls) and casual use/web browsing.
One 1080p 27" monitor. I don't plan on upgrading this anytime in the near future
I'll need to pick up a keyboard and windows OS for sure. I'll probably invest in an xbox one controller as well at some point
5. Why are you upgrading?
Getting into PC gaming.
Check out my parts list for the build I'm looking at doing:
Note that I also have a 750gb 2.5 hdd from my old laptop that I'll be using for this
Also, I've heard that having 2x4gb of RAM works better with the Ryzen CPU, but having 1x8gb allows me the opportunity to upgrade to 2x8gb in future if I want to. Thoughts?
Any help or advice is greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!
