Help for building a better gaming PC (first time)

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Is getting a 16gb ram 2400mhz better than it's 3200mhz variant if we could over clock it? Or overclocking is not worth the time and effort spent? Also I'm trying to get a 144hz monitor and a good gpu from rtx series,and other accessories too like s good mouse, keyboard, cooling accessories and a cabinet.My budget is around $1500.

Faster ram will make a small difference in performance on intel and a decent one on AMD. Don’t count on being able to successfully overclock 2400mhz sims to 3000mhz.

For the first question, no it is not. As for the monitor, do you want gsync or free sync, curved or not, what screen type, and what size? A good mouse and keyboard is really subjective, you need to tell what sort of features you would like on both and I can find some for you. I am afraid I can't help with cooling, I'm not too experienced. And what's a cabinet?


Just say @Boinbo if you need me! I'll be limited to GPU, CPU, general discussion, peripherals, and new builds and planning though. I'm a potato.

System specs:

Laptop with core i3 4030u 

Integrated HD 4400 GPU 113MB

768p 14" screen

I'm was actually thinking of buying Intel processor, but I'm down to switch to AMD if you suggest a good processor within $500

Which AMD processor would you recommend?

I'm looking for 24 inch 144hz monitor with g sync, I don't prefer curved...but I'm looking for monitors around $300-350. Mouse with a few extra buttons and and good mechanical keyboard. And cabinet is a case.

Thanks for the specs really appreciate it...but that Corsair k68 is bit overkill for me.

There are some cheaper RedDragon mechanical keyboards for like 30 dollars

A good mechanical keyboard, would be either the Logitech g513, or the drevo blademaster pro wireless. The mouse, I would say glorious model o, Razer basilisk, or the g502 variants from Logitech. I am not able to find a monitor to fit your needs. A good case is the next h500, fractal design meshify C, Cougar panzer Evo, etc.

Never get a Razer product, and the Corsair K55 isn’t mechanical so I wouldn’t consider it.

It's NZXT h500, not next h500, I'm assuming autocorrect messed that up


CPU: Ryzen 3 2200G RAM: G Skill Aegis 1x8gb DDR4 - 3000 (Probably should have gone dual channel, but was attempting to save every buck I could while still maintaining at least 1tb of storage) MOBO: ASRock B450 pro4 SSD: Inland 120gb HDD: 1tb WD Blue PSU: Corsair CXM 450w Case: Raidmax Galaxy (Pain in the butt to build with, but it's beautiful.)

Phone: Pixel 2 XL (Forced to switch from iPhone X, because my mom returned it. I got this from my uncle and couldn't be happier, it performs a heck of a lot better than my iPhone, never going back to apple now.) Idgaf about apple anymore, basically on cloud nine with this thing.
