    @Lulzino Hey, if you buy the quadcore you can afford to buy an HDD L o L

    @Lulzino CPU/ MOBO Bundle - https://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboBundleDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.3633483 - $260.00 <-- thats a 1600 with b350f motherboard Ram - https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIACVB7D60965&cm_re=ddr4_3200-_-9SIACVB7D60965-_-Product $ 117.00 <--3200mhz 1x8 GB(upgrade later) GPU - https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814126122&cm_re=1060_6gb-_-14-126-122-_-Product $305 <-- great card $20 more than 580... CASE NZXT (best case for the price imo) https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811146198&cm_re=case_nzxt-_-11-146-198-_-Product $60 <-- black or white That case is what I am using, It's fantastic and you can fit a dual fan radiator in it EASY and plenty of room for everything and insanely easy to cable manage. GREAT Airflow. ( as long as you have an intake fan. Mine is white ) Power supply ( which is enough for my system and I cheap'd on it ) https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817438014&cm_re=ebga_600w-_-17-438-014-_-Product $60.00 <-- really more than enough, and if it goes bad you can replace it. Also You can buy it at bestbuy for less money sometimes. Mine was 56 after tax.. The Rest is really up to you, I'm not going to tell you how to live your life or send you a gigantic confusing list of stuff like everyone else will. This logically is the best thing you can possibly do in my honest opinion. Everything all together that I listed was $802 before tax. $866.16 after tax If My math is correct which if tax is still 8% it will be correct. Keep in mind this is just another few days of saving hopefully if you work a 9-5 or something of the sort. I would also recommend doing like a 1tb black HDD also can be purchased at Best Buy for less than $100. then later buy an NVME SSD 960 EVO 250GB - they're like 115 or something. That's probably my guess at whats your best bet. Hope this helped man, and always be on the prowl for bundles. btw with a 1300 bundle you save up to 75 dollars. so do what you wish to be done.

    I understand friend, here's the thing. you can get a b350 bundle with 1600 and still be able to afford you 1060 6gb. You r e a l l y shouldn't buy a 580, you're going to hate it and its around the same price for a much better card. Please don't make that mistake, Perhaps stick with the quad core for now. buy the 8gb stick of ram and that saves you 50 dollars., if you think about it you can afford the 1600 build if you get only an 8gb stick

    @Lulzino ram! - https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIACVB7D60965&cm_re=ddr4_3200-_-9SIACVB7D60965-_-Product $117 CPU AND X470 KIT! w/ COOLER! - https://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboBundleDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.3777067 $320 Total: $437 ( roughly, tax is like 8% or something and ofc shipping ) I gotta go to work, but I'll be on later if you like and want to consult.

    the BIGGEST thing is to make sure you get a motherboard that is *2000 SERIES CPU READY* that way when you get more money next year you can buy the next gen cpu and bolt it in (after a bios update ofc). Or maybe even upgrade to a 2600/2600x cpu this year lol. the difference between the 1600/2600 and 1600x/2600x is the x doesn't have to try as hard to overclock because they're built with handpicked parts - silicon, die etc. The only real difference is sometimes you get a 1600/2600 that is just as good as the 1600x/2600x and you can overclock it almost just as high with watercooling ( or in some cases perhaps just as high or more lol ) its lottery when you buy the non x versions. Sometimes its great sometimes its bad. The way silicon has been going lately you could get one that just sucks in comparison. I like the premium of having the x but im kind of weird like that. Almost everyone got the 1600 because they wanted to save 30-50 dollars. I recommend spending a bit more for cpu because if you get the quad core its going to be about half of what you could have and you'd want to upgrade pretty much instantly. Quad core gaming used to be good enough, its not anymore. You cannot play dayz on a quad core from amd. Not arma or any of those, they don't have enough L1 L2 Or L3 cache, and you'd need the fastest SSD around ( nvme ssd ) with some kick ass not cheap ram. The 6 core 1600/2600/x all are basically the same as the 8 core with less cores and threads respectively. So you're getting that performance that I like to call " worth the extra dollars " everyone will try to make a build for you thats around your budget. But you're going to work your A** off for this any way, because you're an enthusiast. What's another 200 dollars for twice the performance ? That's exactly what I thought when upgrading my pc. I just worked 15 hours yesterday to try and save up for a 1080 lol. Anyway my point is you should get the 1600 if you're going to upgrade later, or buy the x470/2600(x) combo that will be on newegg or amazon soon. (either or man its up to you and how hard you wanna work and how bad you want a good pc, so x or not you have the info to make a good decision based on facts) I would do the latter, I would get the better stuff and save up for other things like car parts or games AFTER you know you won't have to upgrade for at least two years. BTW you can always upgrade later, so if you want to save money and you're not going to be playing games that require more than 8GB of RAM just buy one stick of 3200mhz or faster ram (1x8gb @3200) and then upgrade to another stick later on in life ( of the same exact type and brand of ram i.e; 1x8gb stick of 3200mhz rated ram.) I can link you to stuff on newegg ( that's what I use mostly ) if you like.

    @Lulzino I would seriously recommend saving another week and paying another 100 dollars for the 1600 or 1600x.... its going to be much better and you're probably going to want to upgrade in the near future anyway..

    PC restarting randomly, not psu

    Well, it just went through a series of my game randomly crashing... for hours, then finally the pc just did its bsod. Said the driver couldnt come before whatever i couldn't even read it before it went away.

    did you get into trouble young man
  13. my friend had a strix 580 and it didn't come close at 1080p 144hz... so I don't know what you mean. What's *dumb* is paying for a 570 when you could pay the same, less or perhaps a tiny bit more for a much much better card. the 1060 6gb, I just bought one for my girlfriend and it gets higher scores on userbenchmark than my 390.. she has an fx8350 build with non oc slow ddr3. edit: i was also recommending a different card than mine, I know there are better less money alternatives.
  14. i just did the same thing lol my build: - B350F Asus Rog mobo - 2700x @4.01Ghz - 250Gb NvME ssd 960 evo - 2x8Gb DDR4 @3200Mhz - Corsair 750w psu -NZXT S340 - 1TB WD Black HDD - Corsair H100iV2 - XFX R9 390 8Gb - i've spent 1300 on it now, because like a dummy i went and bought a refurb power supply.
  15. the 570 is dumb, and you can always buy peripherals later. Why don't you budget and research every part that you're looking into online. The 1600 with a b350 board that is " 2000 chipset ready " and youll be future proof to upgrade to any zen that supports it. I would definitely go with nvidia. I would get a 1060 6gb.
