Going to build my first gaming PC

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Budget (including currency): $1200 US

Could go up a little in price if needed but I wanna stick to this pricing as best as possible.

 

Country:  USA

 

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Fortnite (This is my primary focus)

Extras: Minecraft and Premiere Pro

 

Other details (existing parts lists, whether any peripherals are needed, what you're upgrading from, when you're going to buy, what resolution and refresh rate you want to play at, etc): 

- No existing parts

- I need a monitor, mouse (Bluetooth preferred), and a keyboard.

- Upgrading from a laptop 

- Going to buy fairly soon (Within a week hopefully)

- 144hz refresh rate

- 1080p at least for resolution

- I want to be able to be able to run at least 120fps.

- Looking more towards SSD over HDD as a heads up.

 

Side note: I'm not sure how absurd I sound since I'm fairly new to the PC parts world but hopefully what I'm asking for is within my price range.

No, any motherboard from MSI that includes the word 'MAX' in the product name is guaranteed to work.

Not sure what that means, but not really into Moba type games.

Some Motherbaords from the 300 and 400 Chipset Series (like your B450) dont work with ryzen 3000 CPUs (like your 3300x)

the Bios needs to be Flashed (updated)

but gloop means thats not the case on your Motherbaord, so no probleme there ^^
