Choosing parts for my first computer.

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Some backstory: Im 14 and I've recently moved into a new house with my family. Both my parents agreed to let me have my own laptop as a gift of some sorts for taking the smaller room. After looking around the internet for laptops usable for gaming I started looking at desktop computers for a better experience in playing some triple A and indie games. I have watched a decent amount of videos about budget computers and how to build them so I have a decent premise of that.

The issue: Since this is my first computer i don't exactly know what things i need and what things are just a waste of money and space. I've chosen some parts from budget building videos so i expect them to be rather good but im still nervous that thy might not work together.

Conclusion: Below I left the links to the parts I found and chose I all ready have a mouse and keyboard but I also need a monitor as well. I hope that some of you could give me ideas of what to remove, replace and leave thank you in advance.

Budget: ~£550 ($670)

Country: UK

Workloads that it will be used for: Mostly just video games

Welcome to the forums.

 

 

PSU is trash, case is mediocre, get an RX 570 or 580 instead of a 1650, and please for the love of god don't get an i3, get Ryzen instead.

Thank you so much i know barely anything about products in building so this reply really helps. Do know any Ryzen processors to choose that would match the mother board?

None will fit in your current motherboard.

 

I also suggest using PCPartPicker to build your PC instead of just Amazon (although if you only want to buy from Amazon, you can set your preferred vendor to Amazon).

You’re welcome! I would wait for someone with more experience to check it over before you buy any of those though.
