  • I'd probably get this slightly faster RAM (unless that's B-die, which i don't think it is, as for $10 more you get 3600 speed RAM with decent enough timings)
  • I would definitely not pay retail for Win 10. if you have a Win 8 or maybe even Win 7 license (non-OEM, or at least un-activated OEM) then you can use that. If not, they're under $15 on eBay and a number of other sites.
  • If it saves you much, you could probably go for a little bit lower powered PSU. PSU prices are pretty terrible right now though so I'm not sure you will.
  • If your budget was including the Window license, throw the extra money into a better GPU.

Since most don't list peripherals they're not usually included in the budget but since you added the monitor, do you need a mouse and keyboard as well?

1. You can vet a faster ram at the same price.

 

2. You might want to get a mesh front case as usually glass=hindered airflow.

 

3. You can tone down on the psu down to about 550w.

 

4. You can get cheaper copies of windows 10 online.

 

5. You might want to add some fans to that

 

Optional: aftermarket cooler

Do you plan to use it for more intensive games such as GTA 5, Crysis, Doom, Call of Duty, etc? Cause you can probably get a cheaper graphics card.

Alrighty! Thank you so much! I already have a pretty good keyboard and mouse (Redragon K552-BA Gaming Mechanical Keyboard, M601 Gaming Mouse)... yes I do have a Win 7 license but it has already been used... even if I did use it wouldn't still cost money to upgrade?

The Win 7 license is iffy. If it's a Win 7 Pro license (non-OEM) then you should be able to use it for Win 10 Pro (probably the same for Win 7 Home to Win 10 Home). If the computer you used it on is no longer in use then it's not considered "in use" and you're fine. But again, that only works if it was an "OEM" key.

This is what I recommend if you have to intention to do heavier gaming. If you do, get the 5600XT

This includes faster memory, and saves you $100, I recommend you get a Windows 10 key from Kinguin, most people use it.

Gotcha! Great! Thanks so much! I do like the look of this build as well.... About the Kinguin... I am sorting out using my dads old non-OEM professional Win 7 license and then upgrading it to Win 10 Pro... thoughts?

That one should be okay then. Just install Win 10 directly (don't even bother "installing 7 and then upgrading"), say "skip" when it asks for a license key (cause I don't believe it'll work during the installation), and then when your actually booted to windows and connected to the internet, go into the settings and there should be a big note at the bottom to "Activate Windows". Put the Win 7 key in there and it should work. If not, windows will still work you'll just have a watermark in the bottom left corner until you get a working key. Certinaly nothing to lose.

So I can use the Win 7 DVD to directly install Win 10? There probs a way to get rid of the watermark as well...

No, you just make a Win 10 USB installer and install Win 10 with it. Getting official Win 10 install media is very simple: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10, unlike with Windows 7 and 8 where it was nigh impossible without purchasing it directly

 

You just need the activation code (bunch of letters and numbers separated by a few dashes) that should be printed on a sticker, usually on the Win 7 DVD case 

 

Not sure there's a way to remove the watermark though. Maybe, but I honestly wouldn't bother. If the Win 7 key doesn't work, grab a 10 key on eBay or a key site for a few bucks.

That motherboard is terrible.

 

Ram is overpriced. 

 

Why waste the M.2 slot on a SATA SSD ?

 

You can get a better gpu with a $1500 budget.

 

Not the best case for airflow.

 

That psu is a bit meh. Better than the S12II but still not great.

 

A 32" is a bit big for 1080p.

If you are going to criticize another guys idea could you at least put up a better option than what he did and not just say why it is not the best?

If you're getting a B450 board, you should get the one you'd selected originally (the Tomahawk Max).

Same with the RAM, or the Ripjaws V I recommended above.

Same with the case, or the Meshify C recommended by @gloop.

 

...Basically, I think what you had originally is much better.

I chose the specific components for aesthetic, since it seems you we're playing lightweight games, I thought a pretty computer would suffice. I did make an error on the SSD and PSU though, I meant to give you a NVMe SSD and a Corsair PSU. Otherwise, I have used that case for many builds so i'm not sure what the issue is here.

Here's an updated one. Mostly the same.

That Corsair SPEC-DELTA RGB looks to have a mostly closed off front which I would consider quite bad for airflow. Both the Meshify C and Thermaltake Versa J24 ARGB that @PolarizedSun had originally have much more open fronts to allow for better airflow. Gamers Nexus reviewed them both quite favorably.

Yeah I had watched videos on the case, however I haven't had any issues with airflow, temperatures, etc. Plus he doesn't have a whole lot going into the case anyways.

@Dawson Wehage Thank you for following me! I will post up my set up when I finish it... it will be in a while as I still am saving up for it...

Fair enough I am still saving for a new computer, well I have the money but I always wait for birthdays or something.

It's going to be a sleeper PC. I plan to upgrade the graphics card sooner or later.
