I want to create a gaming rig that I can then take to uni and use for gaming and productivity. I was thinking of buying a ryzen 3, motherboard and ram bundle but i have no clue what go get for a gpu. I was thinking maybe between 1050,1060 or 1070. my budget is around 500 but deffo flexible. Any advice guys?

You can also pick up a i3 8100, check the benchmarks versus an overclocked R3 1200 and see which fits your use.

Terrible choices, sorry to say.

You can get 2x8GB of 3000MHz RAM for a few bucks more.

Swap the PSU for a CX(2017) version

CPU cooler is not needed, stock cooler more than fine.
 

 

 

@sadees1 If your combo costs more than $300 then you'd be better off picking it up individually:

Total: $296.96

Also, is that $500 just for the GPU? What's your total budget and location?

I am not sure when you say you have 500 you mean for your entire setup. If you are like me (student) probably the latter one with the entire setup. I would say buy a HP Compaq 6300 with i5 3470 and put it in a 1050 ( best price to performance). Which in US would could you about ~$220. You can then get a 27" curved display from Sceptre for about 130. Then 50 dollar for some nice mechanical keyboard. 50 for mouse. Use the last 50 for a nice comfy office chair from staples. Assuming you have a table.

You can't OC and that RAM will hold back Ryzen's performance.
