Plan on building a PC first time

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi I've never owned a desktop PC before and I'm planning on building a PC soon. I don't know where to start and somewhat don't know what parts I need. So pretty much starting from scratch.

 

Budget (including currency): £1000

Country: United Kingdom

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Mainly used for gaming for games like Assassins Creed, Red Dead Redemption, Tomb Raider, etc. Some video editing, web browsing, Discord and plan on using 2 monitors.

Other details: I already own a keyboard, mouse and monitor. Will buy 2nd monitor in the future. I want to play at 1920x1080 up to 144hz but 60hz I think is fine if my budget isn't enough.

I want it to look fancy with some RGB lighting something like how this YouTuber has his :P

This case also got me interested:

This would be a great option for under £1000. If you can spend a bit more swap out the motherboard for the MSI MAG B550 TOMAHAWK as it will support later generation processors. 

I have that case you found, It is great and has very good airflow and looks nice. There are plenty of how to build a PC videos out there on youtube from people like Linus himself, Pauls Hardware, bitwit etc.

Lol you're right :D

I just added more RGB and another GPU model.

 My suggestion with RGB on the case fans, cooler fan, mainboard, GPU and RAM. Pretty much everything lights up :D  Let me know what you think:

Awesome!

How much more would it add to the total if I swap it out for that? 

 

Also lol both of you put up the exact same build. Thanks guys!

~50 punds more. But as long as you don't need PCIe Gen 4 you're fine with the B450 Tomahawk Max.

Ah ok. I'll prob go with the list you've given as you mentioned it has more RGB and I like my RGB 😄

After that it'll be all about me building it together which I'm really worried about and worried I might mess up because it seems complicated.

 

Thanks again for your help guys

Just take a build guide from LTT, Pauls Hardware, Bitwit, JayzTwocents or Hardware Unboxed. Take your time. If you have any questions or problems during the build, the forum will answer them quickly.
