Hi guys,

 

Do you think this is a balanced build for £700? I've cut corners on the motherboard and CPU in hopes of getting a better GPU. Strict budget, but please let me know your thoughts/suggestions!

 

CPU - Ryzen 5 2600 (with cooler) - £123

GPU - XFX RX 5600XT - £280

Mobo - ASRock B450M-HDV - £54

RAM - Corsair Vengeane LPX 16GB Kit @3200Mhz

Storage - WD 240GB M.2 - £35

                Seagate Barracuda 1TB HDD - £35

PSU - 500w Cit ATV Pro 80+ Bronze - £35

 

Undecided on case yet :)

CPU: i5-4690K @ 3.5GHz || MoBo: Asus H81M-C || RAM: 16gb Kingston HyperX Blue || Cooler: Stock intel cooler || GPU: Palit GTX 1050 || PSU: Can't remember exactly but know it meets the needs of my components || Case: White Falcon Case || SSD: Kingston 120GB || Storage: WD Blue 1TB

please use pcpartpicker in the future, it is a more standard formatting and easy for us to edit.

 

but all in all looks solid other than the PSU. please DO NOT cheap out on your PSU, it is the heart and lifeline of your system. buy a crappy one and it can burn your whole system down.

 

Refer to the PSU Tier list below, try to get Tier B and above. Maybe Tier C but no less.

 This would be my suggestion (sorry it's gonna have to be a free case from your mate's basement or something :D) Imo it's always good to look for deals though, for example if I look at part picker in GER I find the 2600 for 129€ atm and I can find it elsewhere as a limited offer for 99€.

All looks well to me other than the PSU which is a bomb, look for a Corsair CX550M or CM Masterwatt 550
