Planning for First Ever PC Build

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi all,

I'm right in the midst of planning my first PC build, and I've finally got a preliminary parts list together. Budget is $2000 CAD, give or take a few hundred, including a new monitor. Any and all criticism is totally welcome, and nothing is set in stone right now. 

There's no CPU cooler because I'm just planning to use the AMD Wraith one that comes with the 3700X. I'm not overclocking, so it should be fine, but if temps are too high I'll just grab another one. Also, I have absolutely no experience with power supplies, so any recommendations in that department are completely welcome.

Thanks!


Always remember the 80/80 rule of project management. That is, the first 80% of the project takes 80% of the time, and the last 20% of the project takes the other 80% of the time.

Used for?

Sorry! Forgot to include that. Used for (almost exclusively) gaming, mostly CS:GO, Tarkov, and Cyberpunk when it eventually comes out. I'm trying to build a rig that will be fairly future-proof, and carry me for a while.

If you're only doing gaming,A Ryzen 5 3600 would be just fine and u can use the extra money for a 2080,a faster RAM since Ryzen loves fast ram so much

Here You get a CPU downgrade but a huge gain in Storage,Ram Speed,And the cream of the crop of any gaming rig,The GPU.A larger monitor for a lower price

I like your original build, but would suggest a full 1TB SSD, instead of 500GB.  To make sure you have room for more than a couple of really big games.

It really depends on you,compared to boggy77's build,His has a better solid state storage,Better CPU cooler which I think is unecessary since you wont be doing any overclocking,Better air flow.But mine has a 32 inch monitor included in the price,A hybrid water cooled  2080
