Just a poor man asking questions.

Hi! I am a poor man asking questions. I want to build a pc but as a i mentioned before im a poor man. Currently i play gmod and csgo (only bc i can run them sightly alright) on an all in on pc on low settings. yes i know, all in one pc. the worst part is the pc doesnt have a graphics card, its integrated graphics. 

 

Does this build look good? (yes i know its a 1200 pc and i claim to be a poor man. trust me i am. this is just a build i eventually want to get that would take a while to obtain.)

Also, if you have any of those parts that you dont want do you think you can send them to me? lol

it's a pretty damn good start, but i scrapped some things because they're unnecessary or not worth it.

removed the cooler because Ryzen already comes with one, and the one you chose is barely an upgrade from the stock one, so you can replace it later if you want, but you don't have to unless you want to overclock.

 

changed the RAM from 2400 to 3000Mhz because Ryzen benefits alot from RAM speed

 

changed the SSD from 128GB to 500GB Samsung 860 EVO

 

changed the power supply to a CX550M because 850W is extremely overkill, and even 550W is overkill, parts these days are not that power hungry

 

scrapped the Creative soundcard because it's unnecessary, and it's not an upgrade.

 

you can scrap the DVD writer if you want, because no one uses that anymore, but maybe you needed it so i kept it 

 

the rest is all good

You did well for a newcomer, but for a similar price for much more firepower and better keyboard (though didnt pay too much attention in matching colours)

 

A board with WiFi built in, similar sum of price but less things hanging in the PCIe slot area.

 

Ditched audio card, modern boards come with decent audio already. You need much more expensive audio equipment (including the sound card) to make a difference.

 

High frequency memory helps Ryzen with its performance

 

1050ti are overpriced. RX 570 performs like a 1060 3gb but cost less than a 1050ti, so no reason to go green team on the lower end of the market.

 

Changed the case for something cheaper, yet similarly performing.

 

Changed PSU, 850w is just too overkill even for a $2000 system, let alone a $1200 one. Besides, PSU itself is a consumable like engine oil, overkill now and save money in the future doesnt work. Also the ATX standard could be ditched in the future and you will need to buy a new PSU if the standard moves on, so a super long lifespan PSU doesnt make much sense for a home user.

 

Changed fans, filling in all the fan mounts are better than just having half the fan mounts filled, even if the fans are slightly inferior. It's more than enough to keep the 2600 and RX 570 cool already.

 

Changed the monitor. the GN246HL isnt a bad monitor, but to get past 60Hz 1080p on that you have to use DVI, a port that's slowly phased out on new graphics cards (Neither Nvidia's 20 series nor AMD's 14nm Vega have one natively. That's why I replaced it with its successor which uses DisplayPort to get the high refresh rate at 1080p.

 

Changed the keyboard from a membrane switch one to a Cherry Red mechanical switch one. This one is pretty plain (no backlight, no hotkeys), but that also means less things that can break.

 

After all that, add in a 1TB SSD to fill in the budget. You don't even need another drive unless you start tapping into multiple AAA games in the future.

Did some adjustments. Also gave you the option of buying a key legit though you can save 50$ on buying a grey key.
