Total Beginner need help

Hi guys!

I posted here about a month ago asking for help to upgrade my old system but that stopped working before i could buy anything for it.

Now, I'll try to build a new system. This will be my first. I have ~$1500 budget. I'll be using it for gaming mostly for WoW, Dota2, Pubg, Blackout. I will also do some light video editing later on. I'll probably also need a new OS, WiFi and thermal paste? Feel free to edit or build me a new system as you see fit.

Also, let me know if you need to see my old system. Sorry for grammar and spelling errors. I'm posting this from a phone.

Since you look like you're willing to go with Ryzen, make sure you tune into the AMD keynote at CES tomorrow (9am, I think pacific time).

 

My advice for now, is change the PSU to a G2 750w. It's $60 right now with a mail in rebate. The G3 has design flaws and is loud. Since you have more leeway on your budget, if you're willing, you could go overkill and get a really nice X470 motherboard so you don't have to change to a better one for future Ryzen CPUs

it looks like a fine build. You may want to add an hdd to go along with the solid state. The board you picked already has on-board wifi, but you may want to upgrade to an mATX board instead of the itx you picked.  You don't need thermal paste since the cooler has it pre-applied but not a bad idea to own some in case you need to reapply the cooler. 

As far as the OS, you can get that for free

Can't see anything wrong with those parts, will give you a more than reasonable setup for the games you mentioned.

 

You can get Windows 10 for free still, it's not activated and it's restricted a lot... but it's free and you can activate it later on if you want to save some money.

 

I'm assuming you can reuse your peripherals, so that's good.

Honestly, i dont know if Ryzen or Intel is better for what I need. I just went with the cheap one. Please correct me as necessary. I really dont know what I'm doing or why. Should I OC or not? I'm just gonna watch some videos on youtube and wing it when I build it.

There's a super sale going on somewhere for Windows 10 right now, something like 13 bucks? Might be worth googling :)

 

AMD is fine CPU-wise, it's their GPUs that have fallen ludicrously behind.

It's $700 USD for a card that performs the same as the 1080Ti in gaming, and performs is supposed to perform better for work based applications. It's all your choice to be honest. It has no ray-tracing, which to me isn't important but it is to a lot of other people, I guess.

 

it's also a pretty cool ass looking card (at least I think so).
