    Console-Sized Build

    Generally looking for air cooling. I would like to keep the case under 100 USD. I'll look at those cases. Thanks for the help!

    Generally console-style, but I will consider other styles. Portability is key.

    Oh ok, didn't know ARMA liked that. Good to know.

    Console-Sized Build

    Instead of focusing on the CPU, is there anything else I should change? Case? GPU?

    Console-Sized Build

    To be honest, plug and play is more my style. After years of owning an unlocked CPU I have still never felt the need to overclock, either because of satisfaction or laziness. My current performance is quite fine, and anything past a tier up/ a minor upgrade would be overkill

    Is that so? It seems to me that an i5 would still be just fine even in ARMA

    I doubt it makes much a difference, but I should be a little more specific with what this build is for. It's just for gaming. I don't stream, I'm not on a schedule when rendering video projects, I just play games. To be more specific, CPU/GPU balanced games such as Squad and CPU-heavy ARMA 3.

    ok gotcha

    I quite like plug n play

    OK, noted with the SSD. I'm not familiar with Ryzen, saw a video or two and decided (at the time) that it wasn't worth paying attention to. And yeah, I felt the 7500 was quite a decent chip for someone not looking to OC.

    oh alright, I've been out of this a few years so this sort of help is needed, thanks!

    That's good to hear, thanks!

    Do you think I'll be fine with that PSU? I doubt I'll overclock, so perhaps, but would I get close to using 450 watts?

    Please explain

    Console-Sized Build

    After months of dealing with critical issues on my current build, I've decided that it might be time for a new computer using recycled money after selling what I have. Basically what I am going for is a console-sized build in a case similar to the Fractal Node 202 or RVZ cases, containing a parts good enough to drive 1080p/1440p games for the next few years. Not talking AAA games at highest settings, just want to stay in a comfortable area in terms of graphics and performance for a while. I am not looking to overclock (would like to keep hardware moderately cool), which is why I chose the chipset and processor in the list below. I would like suggestions and changes to this little list I put together. Please share any cost-saving methods or hardware changes. Thanks!
