1st time DIY build

 Share

1st time building a PC on my own. Because I have nothing to use, no laptop , no PC or at least none that are functional. So I decided to use my 10k(200ish in USD) thats just lying around without any purpose. So yeah, any suggestion would help. Here is what i currently plan, >>> Link <<<

 

Ps. Some say 200ish USD is a pretty small budget, keep in mind this is my 1st build so in the event that fuck this up I would still have some Cash in hand. Also the budget may increase depending on how much I want to gamble on this one so I think 200ish USD is reasonable.

What's going to be the use of your "PC"?

For that price you mostly get a potato.

don't get the 360... just buy a 2200g and wait a while with a gpu, so you can get something higher quality like a 570 or 580. or a second hand 970/980/390x for example

The Ryzen 3 2200G is a great budget APU.

Do you have the case, ram and GPU from your PCP?

If so go for something like this

Agree, the 2200g should be fine for a while I would think. It's definitely the best for your budget, and then when/if you need a better GPU for it, it's a simple slot in. Then a bit further down the line you could swap the CPU for a bit better one for another 100-150 maybe.

Please quote my post, or put @paddy-stone if you want me to respond to you.

just some changes I would make on base of this one:

lower wattage higher quality psu, 450 is more than enough

ab350 to b450

2800 mhz+ if possible

green, blue, a400, su, ssd plus, bx500, mx500, 860 evo, 850 evo, burst, ssd's like that are fine

get a good case if you want to keep it longer, the focus g is a nice one for example

I was particular focused on products that are available with pricing so you can get a general idea how much it will be in the end. 
If you go iGPU you might want to spend a few bucks on faster RAM, 3000 or higher is ideal. Switch the SSD for any @LukeSavenije suggested, wich ever is the cheapest at your store. 

 

This is a basic PC that gives you a nice enough experience for browsing, office task and light gaming. If you spend 200 $ more you can get a Ryzen 5 and a RX570/580 and have a decently powerfull machine that can handle almost every game in 1080p @60fps or higher. Think about what you really want and maybe save a month or two. Buying low end hardware and selling it is usually not worth the effort.
