budget gaming computer build

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I want to make a budget build with these parts. I want to know if what I have here can be upgraded in the future. Is it possible to overclock the iGPU and CPU with the motherboard I chose? Do you think the stealth wraith cooler that AMD gives you is enough if I were to not overclock anything? I have 2x 4gb because I heard it was better for the ryzen 3 2200g than using 1x 8gb.

 

(please tell me if the link is not working)

-Do not use the "home" edition of any OS and then complain you cant do something OS related.

-Do not update Windows 10 if it functions normally at the time.

-For the love of god dont update Nvidia drivers beyond 10 versions past release, if it doesnt work normally by then its just screwed. If you keep going its going to eventually perform worse than it did before.

-Always update AMD drivers as for some reason they are the polar opposite and cant get their drivers to work on release but they work great 5 years later.

-Do not download any Antivirus software, Windows Defender is adequate at keeping you from being stupid, other than that you only need Common Sense 2006 edition.

-Google your problems first, the helpful people on tech support forums are just people who know how to use google.

-Dont discuss irrelevancies on tech support forums, an answer to OP's question must be the first line of your first reply to a thread, follow it with whatever.

-Dont use any software that claims to fix registry errors.

-There are more brands out there than Corsair and EVGA, at least try and be original.

-Read your own posts before you post them.

Link is still broken. From what you have given in your post 2x4 is technically better as it would fully use the dual channel memory bandwidth. However, you want to easily upgrade in the future adding a second 8gb dimm would be easier. Also ryzen tends to over clock better running on 2 dimms over 4, which is what you would end up with in the future trying to upgrade to 16gb ram (4x4).

The stock cooler should be more than enough for the 2200g at stock settings, and may work with minimal overclocking.

As you wanted to take upgrade ability into account I have made a few changes.

Single 8gb dimm in order to move to 2x8gb down the line

SSD as its only a few $ more than the hdd and will have significant quality of life benefit.

Larger psu to give future power headroom for cpu and gpu upgrades

 

there is also the pro4 version of the asrock mobo that has 4 dimms and better cpu power delivery as well for ~$16 more

Yes,The case is really bad for airflow,here is a better one for cheaper:

That's a motherboard with bad VRMs that have no heatsink...

And no dual-channel?!,this suggested build is very bad.

Works now.

Pretty good build overall, id spring for a cheap SSD for the OS installation. 20 bucks for a 120gb SSD to slap windows 10 on would be worth it for the boot time and cache speed. But if you dont care much about that kind of stuff then an HDD on its own is fine.

its definitely a budget mother board. however it should easily handle the 3200g and most likely would be fine with a non oc'd 3600. I also mentioned upgrading to the pro4 version of the same mobo, however i was trying to keep under the budget he originally posted.

That's a waste of money,with the original motherboard there are much more upgrade possibilities and the VRMs are cooled by a heatsink.
