Tips for a new Builder

Budgetgamer04
 Share

Hello, I am a first time PC builder and i have been trying to make a good budget computer that can handle stuff like schoolwork and light gaming. I have put together a computer here 

The stuff that has a changed price I either already have or am getting from friends, I have all the needed peripherals, such as a monitor, keyboard, mouse, etc. and a windows 10 install disc. I would like to get input on things that i should change/ get somewhere else. Thank you, and have a nice day!

Seems good for a homework build, but do not get the ddr4 1030 just to save some money

LTT's Resident Porsche fanboy and nutjob Audiophile.

 

If you have any questions about ultra high end audio (Or any speakers or audio gear!), don't be afraid to shoot me a message, or mention me.

 

Spent over 960k on audio gear, still trying to increase sound quality.

 

For a guide on Microphones and Interfaces, I strongly suggest scrolling through @The Flying Sloth's guide.

This is great for typing essays, thats about it. You should be looking at a ryzen 3 2200G for your CPU.

The ancient AMD CPU and motherboard you're putting on it are a rancid value. Please save and get an athlon 200GE, a B350 motherboard, and some DDR4.

Ditch the graphics card, use this small SSD and supplement your storage with a hard drive later.

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

Infrastructure for good future performance is perhaps out of budget, I was aiming for the cheapest that would be good.

A 120GB SSD is small these days, spend the extra on a 500GB.

All the other ones are good so I'm just gonna add on, first I would suggest dd4, and also dual channel would be useful unless you plan on upgrading.

This would be slightly better but since we don't know when the OP is going the get a 1TB drive, it's better to go straight for a 500GB model.
