Note: First gaming pc. Doesn't mind a PC without RGB. On a budget.
So, I'm gonna get the ff. pc on around april and I'm wondering if what I can do to fully utilize this machine to it's full potential:
Processor: Ryzen 3 2200G
Motherboard: Gigabyte A320M-S2H
RAM: DDR4 Team Elite Plus 1x8gb 2400MHz with Heat-Spreader
PSU: Generic ATX PSU 700watts
Things I want to do:
1. Overclock the RAM - So first of all I won't overclock the cpu YET because of the board, as I am not sure if it's at least 90% safe (me and the machine) because I just recently heard of overclocking with am3 boards. Anyways what I want to ask about the RAM is that what the maximum frequency I could overclock it to is, it has a heat spreader so can I overclock it to 2933MHz like other builds? Or should I just stick with 2600MHz, or like just a little more?
2. Add a GTX (either 1050, 1050TI, 1060, or 1060TI, not sure which to buy yet, depends on what I'll find) in a few months, and a True Rated PSU. - I'm pretty sure the Generic PSU won't cut it and I need to get a true rated one, so can I go away with a Seasonic PSU (Silver or Gold) with 500watts? Or which should I get? I found a lot of Seasonic Gold/Silver PSUs in the Facebook Marketplace reaching from 500w to 700w.
3. Get a better motherboard (am4) and overclock the Ryzen 3 2200G's APU and CPU- Like earlier I said that I won't overclock the cpu YET because of the board, so what BUDGET boards have the features of the Gigabyte A320M-S2H but are am4 so that I can overclock both the CPU and APU of the Ryzen 3 2200G?
4. If there are any other things I could do to get better performance with the current specs, please say them.
