  1. Would you recommend that I purchase a CPU cooler or use stock.
  2. So what would be the differences in regards to a Ryzen 1600 vs 2600?
  3. After many years dragging my feet, I've finally decided to pull the trigger and build my first PC in lieu of restless anticipation for Bethesda's two (and most likely far out) upcoming games. Admittedly I am quite ignorant when it comes to this process and the technicalities which accompany it. Several of my friends have built PC's and they've recommended a few different different parts. I live in the US and my ideal budget for the entire build, including keyboard, monitor, OS, etc. is the 800-850$ range. This is what I have roughly composed in terms of the build, per the recommendations of my friends. They have given differing opinions on choosing the i3-8100 vs i5-8400, and gtx 1050ti vs 1060. Additionally, I am trying to figure out what motherboard I should purchase - the one recommended to me on my list is out of stock. I plan to use this PC solely for gaming, and I am primarily interested in playing ES/Fallout titles modded at high settings, Battlefield 4/1, PUBG, GTA V, and several other much older titles. Most of my buddies are avid Arma 3 players and I would really like to play as well, but from what I've heard, that game is extremely taxing on the CPU and would require a build that's solidly outside of my price range - not really a huge issue to me though. Do you guys think that this would be a proper fit for what I'm looking for? I am relatively unknowledgeable about this stuff, so any advice on replacements, modifications, or ways to cut costs, would be greatly appreciated! Thanks! ?
