So after searching, deciding which is better between Intel and AMD and learning about PC parts for about 2 weeks. I have finally decided that this looks like the perfect gaming build for my budget, what I want to ask you now guys is, is there anything I am missing out on, and will this run good with games like Fortnite, Battlefield 1, gta 5, etc... Will I be able to upgrade this build in the future? Lastly what's the one part you would change about this build without breaking the budget to much?

Fortnite sure, but BF1, GTA5, and other AAA titles you will have to run on lowest settings to get anything near 60 FPS.

Since I don't have that much money to spend on this, will a "GeForce GTX 1060 3GB" be enough for 70-80 fps on high settings on the game I've mentioned before? And the EVGA superclocked and the regular one are the exact same price so which one should I go for?

A 3gb 1060 goes around fr $220-250....where as the cheapest 1060 6gb goes around fr about $289 (the Asus one)...so I would rather suggest u to get that 1060 6gb....

Look at the build that I HV shared above...

Is everyone recommending that case because of the budget or is it actually better than the meshify? And what does this mean on your build "Warning: These parts have potential issues/incompatibilities."

It's build quality is pretty good considering it's price.... it is small ND kinda portable ....also there is A good airflow in this case along with adequate space for cable management....

 

Also, pcpp is showing that incompatibility issue...because the mobo needs a bios update to support that chip. ..

If u don't wanna hassle with bios update...then get a RYZEN 3 1200 ND u'll be fine....the mobo will support that CPU out of the box..

It is less expensive than the Meshify.

 

In the Ryzen builds, the warning has to do with the potential need to update the BIOS on the motherboard before the cpu can be used with it. The note is further down the web page, under the list.

For the titles mentioned at 1080, yes.

Then Ill go for the GeForce GTX 1060 3gb, but which one the EVGA superclocked or the regular one?

If the prices are the same, take the one with the higher clock.

@Lulzino I would seriously recommend saving another week and paying another 100 dollars for the 1600 or 1600x.... its going to be much better and you're probably going to want to upgrade in the near future anyway..

@Rob Walsh F it dude I guess Ill go for the ryzen 5 1600 then :P, but which one would you recommend? the 1600x or the regular one? I read that you would need a better cooling for the x which would break my budget even more so should I go for the 1600?

the BIGGEST thing is to make sure you get a motherboard that is *2000 SERIES CPU READY* that way when you get more money next year you can buy the next gen cpu and bolt it in (after a bios update ofc). Or maybe even upgrade to a 2600/2600x cpu this year lol. the difference between the 1600/2600 and 1600x/2600x is the x doesn't have to try as hard to overclock because they're built with handpicked parts - silicon, die etc. The only real difference is sometimes you get a 1600/2600 that is just as good as the 1600x/2600x and you can overclock it almost just as high with watercooling ( or in some cases perhaps just as high or more lol ) its lottery when you buy the non x versions. Sometimes its great sometimes its bad. The way silicon has been going lately you could get one that just sucks in comparison. I like the premium of having the x but im kind of weird like that. Almost everyone got the 1600 because they wanted to save 30-50 dollars. I recommend spending a bit more for cpu because if you get the quad core its going to be about half of what you could have and you'd want to upgrade pretty much instantly. 


            Quad core gaming used to be good enough, its not anymore. You cannot play dayz on a quad core from amd. Not arma or any of those, they don't have enough L1 L2 Or L3 cache, and you'd need the fastest SSD around ( nvme ssd ) with some kick ass not cheap ram. The 6 core 1600/2600/x all are basically the same as the 8 core with less cores and threads respectively. So you're getting that performance that I like to call " worth the extra dollars " everyone will try to make a build for you thats around your budget. But you're going to work your A** off for this any way, because you're an enthusiast. What's another 200 dollars for twice the performance ? That's exactly what I thought when upgrading my pc. I just worked 15 hours yesterday to try and save up for a 1080 lol. 
      Anyway my point is you should get the 1600 if you're going to upgrade later, or buy the x470/2600(x) combo that will be on newegg or amazon soon. (either or man its up to you and how hard you wanna work and how bad you want a good pc, so x or not you have the info to make a good decision based on facts) I would do the latter, I would get the better stuff and save up for other things like car parts or games AFTER you know you won't have to upgrade for at least two years. BTW you can always upgrade later, so if you want to save money and you're not going to be playing games that require more than 8GB of RAM just buy one stick of 3200mhz or faster ram (1x8gb @3200) and then upgrade to another stick later on in life ( of the same exact type and brand of ram i.e; 1x8gb stick of 3200mhz rated ram.) 

            I can link you to stuff on newegg ( that's what I use mostly ) if you like.

@Rob WalshFirst of all thank you so much for your detailed and helpful answer, I know exactly what you mean but the economy is not that great at the moment sadly so I actually can't go for that good of a PC, that's why I wanted to settle for the previous suggestions even though I would rather want to go all in..

@Rob WalshFirst of all thank you so much for your detailed and helpful answer, I know exactly what you mean but the economy is not that great at the moment sadly so I actually can't go for that good of a PC, that's why I wanted to settle for the previous suggestions even though I would rather want to go all in.. 

I understand friend, here's the thing. you can get a b350 bundle with 1600 and still be able to afford you 1060 6gb. You r e a l l y shouldn't buy a 580, you're going to hate it and its around the same price for a much better card. Please don't make that mistake, Perhaps stick with the quad core for now. buy the 8gb stick of ram and that saves you 50 dollars., if you think about it you can afford the 1600 build if you get only an 8gb stick

CPU/ MOBO Bundle - https://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboBundleDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.3633483 - $260.00 <-- thats a 1600 with b350f motherboard 

 

Ram  - https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIACVB7D60965&cm_re=ddr4_3200-_-9SIACVB7D60965-_-Product $ 117.00 <--3200mhz 1x8 GB(upgrade later)

 

GPUhttps://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814126122&cm_re=1060_6gb-_-14-126-122-_-Product $305 <-- great card $20 more than 580...

 

CASE NZXT (best case for the price imohttps://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811146198&cm_re=case_nzxt-_-11-146-198-_-Product $60 <-- black or                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        white

 

That case is what I am using, It's fantastic and you can fit a dual fan radiator in it EASY and plenty of room for everything and insanely easy to cable manage. GREAT Airflow.

                                                                                            ( as long as you have an intake fan. Mine is white )

 

Power supply ( which is enough for my system and I cheap'd on it ) https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817438014&cm_re=ebga_600w-_-17-438-014-_-Product $60.00 <-- really more than enough, and if it goes bad you can replace it. Also You can buy it at bestbuy for less money sometimes. Mine was 56 after tax.. 

 

                 The Rest is really up to you, I'm not going to tell you how to live your life or send you a gigantic confusing list of stuff like everyone else will. This logically is the best thing you can possibly do in my honest opinion. Everything all together that I listed was $802 before tax. $866.16 after tax If My math is correct which if tax is still 8% it will be correct. 

                              Keep in mind this is just another few days of saving hopefully if you work a 9-5 or something of the sort. I would also recommend doing like a 1tb black HDD also can be purchased at Best Buy for less than $100. then later buy an NVME SSD 960 EVO 250GB - they're like 115 or something. That's probably my guess at whats your best bet. 

 Hope this helped man, and always be on the prowl for bundles. btw with a 1300 bundle you save up to 75 dollars. so do what you wish to be done.
