First PC Build - AMD Ryzen Mini ITX

Budget (including currency): £650

Country: United Kingdom

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Light gaming, internet browsing, Microsoft office, minecraft.

1. Budget & Location

 

Could you please check this Mini-Itx build is all compatible as it's the first time I'm going to build a PC.

 

Mini Itx PC Build:

Case - Streacom F1C WS - £80
Motherboard - AMD B450 Aorus Pro WIFI - £130
CPU - AMD Ryzen 3400G - £140
CPU Cooler - Noctua NH-L9A-AM4 - £37
Storage - Sabrent Rocket Q M.2 Nvme SSD - £109
RAM - Corsair 2x 8GB DDR4 2933MHz C16 XMP 2.0 - £86
Power Supply - PicoPSU-160-XT DC-DC - £35

2. Aim

PC is going to be used for light gaming and college work. I'm hoping integrated graphics on ryzen is enough. 

3. Monitors

I already have 1 1080p monitor, think I'll be adding a new 1080p for a dual screen set up soon.

4. Peripherals

No peripherals are needed, I already have basic logitech keyboard and mouse. 

5. Why are you upgrading?

I currently have a Lenovo laptop that runs the extra monitor. I'm wanting a small mini itx build as my current laptop is old and very slow only 4GB Ram and Intel i5.

Wait - there is strong information about upcoming Zen2-based APUs, including an 8-core APU. The 3400G is about to become obsolete in a few months.

Tier lists for building a PC.

 

Motherboard tier list. Tier A for overclocking 5950x. Tier B for overclocking 5900x, Tier C for overclocking 5800X. Tier D for overclocking 5600X. Tier F for 4/6 core Cpus at stock. Tier E avoid.

(Also case airflow matter or if you are using Downcraft air cooler)

Spoiler

 

Gpu tier list. Rtx 3000 and RX 6000 not included since not so many reviews. Tier S for Water cooling. Tier A and B for overcloking. Tier C stock and Tier D avoid.

( You can overclock Tier C just fine, but it can get very loud, that is why it is not recommended for overclocking, same with tier D)

Spoiler

 

Psu tier List. Tier A for Rtx 3000, Vega and RX 6000. Tier B For anything else. Tier C cheap/IGPU. Tier D and E avoid.

(RTX 3000/ RX 6000 Might run just fine with higher wattage tier B unit, Rtx 3070 runs fine with tier B units)

Spoiler

 

Cpu cooler tier list. Tier 1&2 for power hungry Cpus with Overclock. Tier 3&4 for overclocking Ryzen 3,5,7 or lower power Intel Cpus. Tier 5 for overclocking low end Cpus or 4/6 core Ryzen. Tier 6&7 for stock. Tier 8&9 Ryzen stock cooler performance. Do not waste your money!

Spoiler

 

Storage tier List. Tier A for Moving files/  OS. Tier B for OS/Games. Tier C for games. Tier D budget Pcs. Tier E if on sale not the worst but not good.

(With a grain of salt, I use tier C for OS myself)

Spoiler

 

Case Tier List. Work In Progress. Most Phanteks airflow series cases already done!

Ask me anything :)

Light gaming would still be better off with a dedicated GPU though.

Router: i5-7200U appliance running pfSense WiFi: Zyxel NWA210AX (~940Mbit peak) + Ubiquiti nanoHD (OpenWRT)
ISPs: Zen VDSL (66Mbit) + Lebara 4G [Vodafone] (~120Mbit) + Three 5G (~700Mbit during quiet hours, ~500Mbit peak hours)

I wanting a small desktop PC, so a dedicated GPU isn't really an option. 

 

Although do AMD or Intel have better integrated graphics in CPU's?
