    Budget templates.

    I considered more for the GPU but thought that having a higher end CPU would be more important for streaming, editing and just day to day tasks. You're definitely right for gaming though.

    Budget templates.

    How much to spend and where? This list will cover what I believe to be the best way to split your budget for a new PC build. The budgets I'll be covering are £400, £600, £800, £1000. I'll leave how much in pounds (£) I recommend spending and the rounded percentage (%) of that component. Feel free to comment what you think below, I'm sure people will appreciate the help. Lets-a-go £400 £400 is a kinda low budget but that doesn't mean you have to have a bad pc. In 2019 you should be able to spend that much and play games at 1080p and 45fps, 30 in more demanding titles at medium settings. A good way to split your budget would be: £80 CPU (20%) £55 Motherboard (14%) £40 RAM (10%) £35 Hard drive (9%) £120 GPU (30%) £30 Case (8%) £40 PSU (10%) Here's a link for a similar priced build.

For this budget I'd recommend: £140 CPU (23%) £20 cooler (light overclocks can help) (3%) £60 motherboard (10%) £55 RAM (9%) £35 Hard drive (6%) £25 SSD (4%) £185 GPU (31%) £50 case (8%) £50 power supply (8%) Parts list: PCPartPicker Part List Type Item Price CPU AMD Ryzen 5 2600X 3.6 GHz 6-Core Processor £145.99 @ Amazon UK CPU Cooler Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler £23.99 @ Amazon UK Motherboard Gigabyte GA-AX370M-Gaming 3 Micro ATX AM4 Motherboard £59.99 @ AWD-IT Memory Crucial Ballistix Sport AT 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-2666 Memory £53.90 @ Amazon UK Storage Patriot Burst 240 GB 2.5" Solid State Drive £26.99 @ Amazon UK Storage Seagate BarraCuda 1 TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive £35.58 @ Aria PC Video Card XFX Radeon RX 590 8 GB FATBOY OC+ Video Card £184.99 @ Amazon UK Case Phanteks P300 ATX Mid Tower Case £50.37 @ CCL Computers Power Supply be quiet!

While £600 is what I recommend for first time builders, £800 is where most people should be aiming in order to be future proofed for a while. Prices I think suit this budget are: £215 CPU (27%) £30 cooler (4%) £65 motherboard (8%) £55 RAM (7%) £35 Hard drive (4%) £30 SSD (4%) £250 GPU (31%) £70 case (9%) £50 PSU (6%) Here's a link: PCPartPicker Part List Type Item Price CPU AMD Ryzen 5 3600X 3.8 GHz 6-Core Processor £217.98 @ Aria PC CPU Cooler Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler £23.99 @ Amazon UK Motherboard Biostar TB350-BTC ATX AM4 Motherboard £64.47 @ Scan.co.uk Memory Crucial Ballistix Sport AT 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-2666 Memory £53.90 @ Amazon UK Storage Western Digital Green 240 GB 2.5" Solid State Drive £30.00 @ Amazon UK Storage Seagate BarraCuda 1 TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive £35.58 @ Aria PC Video Card Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1660 Ti 6 GB WINDFORCE OC Video Card £249.97 @ Amazon UK Case NZXT H500 ATX Mid Tower Case £67.98 @ CCL Computers Power Supply Cooler Master MasterWatt 550 W 80+ Bronze Certified Semi-modular ATX Power Supply £50.99 @ Ebuyer Prices include shipping, taxes, rebates, and discounts Total £794.86 Generated by PCPartPicker 2019-08-08 19:21 BST+0100 £1000 £1000, that's a fair bit of money, but it does mean you shouldn't have to upgrade for a number of years. That can balance out the numbers if you're willing to go without the newest and best hardware for a while. Performance wise you can expect 1080p 90fps, 1440p 60 in most AAA games and over 300 in some eSports titles. Basically £1000 will cover you in all but the most difficult to run games at 1440p. At this budget, steaming games and video editing also becomes a lot more viable I think you should spend roughly: £315 CPU (32%) £30 cooler (I would recommend an I7 that isn't overclockable) (3%) £65 motherboard (7%) £55 RAM (6%) £35 Hard drive (4%) £40 NVME SSD (4%) £325 GPU (33%) £80 case (8%) £55 PSU (6%) And the final link for today: PCPartPicker Part List Type Item Price CPU Intel Core i7-9700F 3 GHz 8-Core Processor £316.98 @ Amazon UK CPU Cooler Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler £23.99 @ Amazon UK Motherboard ASRock H370 Pro4 ATX LGA1151 Motherboard £68.88 @ CCL Computers Memory Crucial Ballistix Sport AT 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-2666 Memory £53.90 @ Amazon UK Storage Kingston A1000 240 GB M.2-2280 NVME Solid State Drive £42.33 @ PC World Business Storage Seagate BarraCuda 1 TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive £35.58 @ Aria PC Video Card Sapphire Radeon RX VEGA 64 8 GB NITRO+ Video Card £326.54 @ CCL Computers Case Fractal Design Meshify C ATX Mid Tower Case £91.09 @ Overclockers.co.uk Power Supply LEPA MaxGold 700 W 80+ Gold Certified Semi-modular ATX Power Supply £54.70 @ Amazon UK Prices include shipping, taxes, rebates, and discounts Total £1013.99 Generated by PCPartPicker 2019-08-08 19:40 BST+0100 Thank you all for reading, any comments are appreciated.

    Where have I gone wrong?

    ***UPDATE*** I'm pretty sure I've found a, if not the issue. One of the pins in the socket is bent but I don't know if that is the cause of the pc not turning on at all. Also I forgot to say that when I first plugged it in and hit the on button there was a brief flash from the led on the top of the case and a quiet clicking noise.

    Where have I gone wrong?

    I'm using the same ram for both

    Where have I gone wrong?

    CPU fan is connected to a 3 pin connector labelled CPU fan. The ram is properly installed, the PSU isn't modular so all the cabels are installed in there. It's an EVGA 500w

    Where have I gone wrong?

    Power supply is turned on, both at the wall and on the unit.

    Where have I gone wrong?

    The ram is fine, I just checked it. The front io isn't connected because it is outside of the case. I used a metal screwdriver to try power on.

    Where have I gone wrong?

    It isn't any more because I took it out of the case to test. I've been trying to use a metal screwdriver to power it on anyway.

    Where have I gone wrong?

    Hi, thanks for having a read and possibly helping. Today I've tried upgrading my motherboard and CPU from an x4 880K to an i5-4590. I've tried plugging everything in but when I try either pressing the power button or briefing the pins, nothing happens. And when I say nothing happens, absolutely nothing. I have no idea what I've broken, especially because the same thing happens when I try reinstalling my old motherboard band processor. This is really frustrating me and any help will be appreciated.

    Possible CPU bottleneck help.

    Thanks Lurick

    Possible CPU bottleneck help.

    The motherboard should be around £15/20 so not loads. I'm in south east England
  12. Possible Bottleneck? Hi so I've got an r9 290 and an x4 880k which I'm considering upgrading cause I think I'm being bottle-necked. Do you guys and gals think it's worth my time to get a used i5 4590 (it's my friend's and he'll give it to me for £40) and a new motherboard? Thanks for any advice. Also here's my usage stuff while playing overwatch on low settings 60fps.
