  1. Thank you for taking your time to help me with this. I'll be installing the B450 chipset from the second link in the original post and the two realtek drivers from the asrock page. Very helpful, thank you
  2. So you'd recommend getting the drivers from the second link. That's what I wanted to go for because I saw the VGA in the bundle driver, but I am still torn because of the broad drivers classification by AMD, they offer B450 drivers, while asrock offers drivers for the individual board itself and what they think is best for it. Any other opinions? I downloaded both the AMD B450 and the asrock bundle along with realtek and lan on my flash drive, hoping I'll get some clarification and more opinions by the time I'm done assembling.
  3. Thought so. I'll be downloading GeForce Experience separately, but do you mind pointing out exactly which files to download from that support page? I don't wanna screw anything up
  4. Hello. I am currently offloading needed drivers to a flash drive for the system I'm gonna be building when it arrives in a week or so. Figured proper preparation is needed, at least to have sound and connect to the internet. The thing is, support for my motherboard (ASrock B450M Pro4) is a little confusing, so I'm wondering which drivers should I download from the support page ( https://www.asrock.com/mb/AMD/B450M Pro4/ ), or if not, should I download it from AMD's website ( https://www.amd.com/en/support/chipsets/amd-socket-am4/b450 ). The exact system specs of mine are as follows: PCPartPicker Part List Type Item Price CPU AMD Ryzen 5 2600X 3.6 GHz 6-Core Processor $136.88 @ Amazon Motherboard ASRock B450M PRO4 Micro ATX AM4 Motherboard $74.98 @ Amazon Memory G.Skill Ripjaws V Series 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3200 Memory $69.99 @ Newegg Storage Crucial MX500 1 TB 2.5" Solid State Drive $99.99 @ Amazon Video Card Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1660 Ti 6 GB OC Video Card $243.98 @ Newegg Case Cooler Master MasterBox NR400 (w/o ODD) MicroATX Mid Tower Case Power Supply Cooler Master MWE Gold 550 W 80+ Gold Certified ATX Power Supply $85.26 @ Amazon Prices include shipping, taxes, rebates, and discounts Total (before mail-in rebates) $731.08 Mail-in rebates -$20.00 Total $711.08 Generated by PCPartPicker 2020-01-26 15:47 EST-0500 I appreciate all the help, the fact that there's drivers left right and center to download prompted me to want to double check here. Cheers
  5. A while ago I made a thread where I was planning to do my first PC build with a part selection I wanted to order. Well... Things changed since then, and me being a first time PC builder, I wanted to hear opinions on these parts. Keep in mind that there's not much headroom for me to swap one part for another, due to my local store having pricing all over the place, the good example is the R5 2600X being cheaper than R5 2600. I know, right? This is what I came up with, so I want to hear opinions on this build I plan on gaming with on a 1080p resolution. Total cost will be 845 euros ($937, yeah, I know it's expensive, components are usually more expensive in Europe). Cheers, and sorry in advance for creating a second thread within a timespan of just a week or so, hope that's not a problem.

  6. Thanks for the replies, everyone. I'll take all of your recommendations into a consideration. Cheers!
  7. Greetings! New to the forum, but been following Linus and other tech youtubers for quite a while now, so in the next few months, I plan to build a pc with the components attached bellow. I assume you experienced builders usually have new builders like me tell you that they are worried not to damage their components, but I am in a somewhat different position. I live in Eastern Europe, and ordering of off Amazon/Newegg isn't exactly an option, due to abnormally high taxes for imported products over 50 euros, sometimes up to 40%. I am not joking, these are the import laws here in Serbia. On top of that, Amazon/Newegg shipping costs require special handling, so that's additional cost. With that being out of the question, I found an 'indie' shop where I can buy all the components listed for 1040 euros combined. The opinions I am looking for are of course regarding the build, but also, if somebody by chance purchased parts from an 'indie' shop (new parts, mind you) I'd like to hear their experiences. Obviously experiences will vary, but in case a part is DOE, for example, what were your experiences with replacing them? The shop I got in sight has over 2000 positive reviews on the website I found them on and not a single negative one, in your opinion, is this validation for them, and should I trust them? Should I replace a part with a different one, if the budget stays more or less the same? Thanks in advance!

Reason why I didn't include it in there is because prices are absurd currently, and they vary a lot.
  8. I have never built a PC before but I plan to, and the reason I have no anxiety from doing so is due to the sheer volume of videos I have watched regarding help for first time builders. Hours upon hours of 'research'. A year ago I wouldn't be comfortable to do so, but a lot of watching really helps your confidence (coming from a guy who never built one, I know lol, but it's really the way I feel). The way I look at it, as long as you don't damage your components and follow basic prep protocol that will help you in not damaging them, even if you get stuck, worst case scenario is you take your components to your local PC shop and ask them to make it for you. This is what I plan to do if it gets too intimidating for me. Wouldn't be ashamed to even ask the person to build it with me so I can better learn, I'd be paying them after all. Bottom line, don't be intimidated. There's no reason to really, if you have done proper research and have prepared yourself. Watch a lot of videos, and I do mean A LOT, and take your time when the time comes to build it!
