For the past week, I was just thinking if it is best to buy a pre built or build a pc. Going back into my previous forms posts, I was seeing "Build a PC". At the time, I was not sure if that was the best to do, but by watching videos and learning how to build one I have gained confidence (except for installing windows).  I have gather parts for my future pc builds on PC Part Picker. Would you mind checking it out and letting me know what I should change. It would be greatly appreciated.  :D

It looks great! Glad you didn't go prebuilt. If you can wait (and this might be until Jan. so I wouldn't necessarily recommend it) try and get the 3060. I should be a great card for about $20 or so more than the 2060. I would be very surprised if it isn't at least 20% better than the current 2060.

Installing Windows has become pretty much "click next" until done now. You should be fine there :)

 

Congrats on making the leap to the wonder world of custom computer build!!

Great parts :). Keep the motivation, it’ll probably be hard to stick to the plan but if you really keep your head straight then you’re definitely going to be proud about your build, not something you get from a pre build.

Thank you, I did not know it would be that cheap :D. I am building this 1 year from now.

Looks nice

I would get another PSU though. Any chance you can spend 50 bucks more?

Well in that case NVIDIA stock will be completely sorted out next year and Zen 3 will be out and available so go for those. You are going to have a great build mate!

What's wrong with the PSU? 80+ bronze 700 watts. Non modular but Idk if that's important to everyone.

Not by watts you must choose PSU.

It's in tier C - 

Why it's in so low tier I can't tell, but very rarely in these times 80+ Bronze non-modular PSU is worth it.


... but I'm no expert

Thats important for many People. Me included.

A PSU is a critical Part of a Gaming PC. You want something good.

Sure your PSU would do the Job most likely for a time. But why take any Chances?

 

Corsair RM750x / RM750i

 

Get one of those and you are golden.

Those are pretty great options. If he has it in budget it would be worth it but I've had that PSU for years and it has gone through a ton with no issues. I know "it works fine for me" is not a good answer but it is a solid PSU for the budget whether it's the cleanest power delivery or not. I would prefer to get a GPU upgrade then to have fewer cables. That's just me though.

I just checked the prices, and those power supplies are out of budget. I have found an alternative in which can be viewed in the link provided. Would that work?

Not bad, but I wouldn't get a 3600 this close to the release of the 4600.

Do you have other storage? If you're playing games 500GB is going to disappear awfully fast.

I'd also maybe find a used 1070 or 580, and wait until they release the 3060. Then sell the used card and buy that.

Zen 3 is out 8. October. R5 3600 will be obsolete most likely.

Obsolete is a bit harsh 😛

Sure it would work. But its also not modular again. Which can be pain in the Ass.

You could get the RM650x

Thats only 10 Bucks more enough has enough Juice.

I won't consider myself as a "gamer". I enjoy playing a few games, at the most 3. The most "intensive" game I would want to play on this pc is Kerbal Space Program 2 when it comes out. 500gb is perfect for the meanwhile as I save for a 1tb HDD to install later on.

Can you explain what modular means, I am not quite familiar with power blocks.

That means you can plug in and out all Cables from the PSU.

So basically if you don't need a cable, you can take it out of the pc.

Yes. Which means easier to install and a cleaner build.
