i would go for this.

that b350 board is bad and doesn;t support 3000 series ryzen without a bios update.

2133 ram isn't a good idea, ryzen thrives on fast ram, so at least 3000Mhz is recommended

i've added better storage and a much better GPU and psu, while keeping in the budget.

you can do all your work ad also game on this pc.

Hey there,

I'm a university student (in the UK) and my current computer is letting me down a lot with running computational models and compiling code.

Decided that I'm going to try building a computer instead of getting one off the shelf, I've looked at some components and the question is whether they'll be fit for purpose/good?

 

Here's the list:

CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 3600 3.6 GHz 6-Core Processor

CPU cooler: ARCTIC Alpine 64 GT 25.6 CFM CPU Cooler

Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-AB350M-DS3H Micro ATX AM4 Motherboard

Memory: G.Skill NT Series 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-2133 Memory

Storage: Western Digital Green 240 GB M.2-2280 Solid State Drive

Video Card: Gigabyte GeForce GT 1030 2 GB Low Profile Video Card
Case: BitFenix Nova ATX Mid Tower Case

Power Supply: EVGA 600 W 80+ Certified ATX Power Supply

 

Currently budgeting around £600

 

Will be using a Windows 10 for students as the OS.

 

Thanks in advance,

Peter

what kind of computational models?  Do they use GPU and/or CPU to do the computing?  You can also find faster ram for about the same price and invest a little more in the video card especially if it is going to be used for modeling stuff

@TylerDurden! The models are normally coded in R or Python, taking 10s of thousands of lines of data and applying it to different generalised linear models with some using machine learning to produce predictions. I think it uses the CPU mostly.
