New budget build

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I'm planning to build a computer that will be mainly used for office stuff and for designing on 3D cad software (Fusion 360) and for other software related to electronic engineering (I'm not going specific since those programs are not very demanding).

I do not plan to game at the moment, but it's a future posibility

Just FYI now I have a DELL XPS 15 9550 (8GB RAM, i7-6700HQ, GTX950M). I will still have this computer but I will leave it for when I need to work away (university mainly). The reason for this change is that I have destroyed the battery due to it being continuosly charging (I really need the laptop once a week, the rest of the day it is connected to a monitor at home).

Take into account:

  • The CPU is really the Ryzen 5 1600AF. But I haven't found that specific model on PCPartPicker
  • The case is the Sharkoon QB ONE (again, not on PCPartPicker)
  • The graphics card will be bought second hand at 75€

The CX550 you have picked is much better. Don't change it.

That I know. The question wasn't formulated correctly. Is the 10-15€ difference worth it?

That was the plan. I screwed up when configuring on PCPartPicker

It's nearly 30€ more expensive. What do I get that the ASRock doesn't have?

Yes, definitely worth it.

Not a lot really... 

I didn't expect such a big difference in price.
