My new built (under a budget)

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Budget (including currency): Around -1000 euros

Country: Portugal

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Only gaming (variety gaming)

Other details :  built , I am going to buy some spec that are in discount on my country and the others I will wait until 3000 and the AMD 4000 series comes out to get lower prices.

 

 

I am not sure about the motherboard , I dont know if I buy  b450 or go for b550 for a future upgrade because it supports next gen CPUs. Btw I dont need HDD and the SSD is fine at 448 GB (tell me if it is really important to change for a 2.m ) , this SSD is the only part I am reusing from my old pc.

 

Please advice me on PSU I dont trust this bronze , I feel like bronze is to easy to get damaged and screw my pc.

 

Dont mind the monitor .

I would go with a B450, B550 are expensive and nonsense for this type of built. I wouldn't mind the PSU, SeaSonic is a good brand, 80+ Bronze is really fine.

if your happy with the speed of it, sata ssd is fine. i run games off my sata ssd vs my m.2 nvme, no noticeable difference. only difference i see is maybe 1 second boot time difference lol

(all highlighted fields are problematic)

 

memory: you're on a budget, get a ripjaws V 3600 CL16 kit (Ballistix 3000 CL15 if you want to go cheaper. It's miron rev e, and it'll OC nicely)

storage: That's a DRAMless SSD, I'd avoid at any cost. Try to find a mx500/Team L5 lite 3D unit for that price

PSU: S12iii units are Double mag amps, and you can get much better units at this cost (even in portugal, you can get off with a TXm/Revolution DF/RMx/RM/IN WIN PB/Antec high Current Gamer gold psu)

OS: Don't pay that much for windows 10, you can literally download it for free from the MC website (the free version has a small watermark at the bottom right. that's it)


It is but human, to err, to buy a PSU, akin to dirt,

but fret not, young Padawan, for we will tell you, 

what will become, of that, which you have earned

Buying by brand in the PC space is about the worst decision you can make.

 

Efficiency isn't quality.

Get a good PSU

I totally agree with you on the RAM point , but I on Portugal your RAM is at the same price as my RAM non-RGB , thats why I will go with the Corsair non-RBG one. About the storage , I have a old pc right now (writing on it :) ) and the only part I can reuse from my entire pc and I havent got any problems since I bought it , is it really bad the fact that it is DRAMless ? 

Can you recommend I PSU because I really dont understand about psu's and isn't mine a good one ?  In terms of W's it handels my pc but I don't know about the other things and can you explain me about the double mag amps and why is it bad ?

 

 

I was going to do that for windows

 

Thanks for your reply ! XD

A CX550 should be around $95 and a bit better.

 would reccomend something like this. If you can, find a better case and you might want to add a hard drive as well but this list is close to your budget.

yeah, DRAMless SSDs are pretty crappy on every front. I'd recommend a Corsair TXm/Corsair RMx/ Phanteks AMP/ High current gamer gold/ SF leadex III unit (the tx is the lowest qualiy out of all of them). Get whichever one is cheaper
