My budget build

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

My budget build :

 

• Ryzen 5 3400g

• Gigabyte B450 AORUS ELITE AMD B450 Ryzen Socket AM4 ATX Desktop Motherboard

• 1TB WD Blue HDD

• G.Skill 2×8gb ddr4 3200mhz ram

• Western Digital Green 240GB SATA 6Gb/s 2.5" Solid State Drive

• Raidmax V4 case

• Raidmax XT 500W

 

Next upgrade : RX570

 

 

Hi, so this is my build and I only need to buy the ssd and motherboard for my build to be complete.I just have 1 question about my cheap Power supply.Should I replace it before getting the RX570 or after? I'd prefer to upgrade it after if I can or should I buy a better one and not use it?

 

Also, is buying an 8gb RX570 a bad idea?

An bad power supply can dmg your new stuff...so the answer should be clear. First change the power supply!

 

I would buy an RX card at this moment...whats your budget for your build and what do you want to accomplish? I would recomment going with an ryzen 5 2600X if you buy an graphicscard...about the same price but munch more power.

Well if your budget is that low i will would recommend to you that you wait 2-3 month until you have the money to get the graphicscard or get an used one for the time...but an 4 core processor isnt future proved anymore. You could go without the ssd to and buy one in the future that would be better then you cut on budget for cpu or gpu.
