Wanting to be my first PC, any thoughts will be great and any help will be nice.

Budget (including currency): R 11374,34/$ 700

Country: SOUTH AFRICA

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Some gaming including Overwatch, CS:GO, TF 2, Minecraft, Assassins Creed and some work on AUTO CAD.

Other details (existing parts lists, whether any peripherals are needed, what you're upgrading from, when you're going to buy, what resolution and refresh rate you want to play at, etc): I am using a Core i3 5005U with integrated graphics and 8 Gb of RAM (Laptop). I currently get 30 FPS on average, on the lowest settings and low textures . I want to build my first PC and got a list of want i chose. i want to play at 1080p with at least 80 FPS . And i am still choosing the right monitor and was wondering if i can get some help. 

 

 

I would want to use this PC for about 5 years and to be easily compatible with future components. And i don't mind waiting a month for shipping.

 

Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated 

 

Thank you

Okay so that SSD at that price very likely DRAM less could go with a 500GB and 2TB HDD, that PSU I don’t know much about it but it’s a little to cheap

Reminder⚠️

I'm just speaking from experience so what I say may not work 100%

Please try searching up the answer before you post here but I am always glad to help

As mentioned, that power supply is a lil suspect. Also, a 2 or 4 TB HDD isn't much more  $ than the 1TB.

don't build right now unless you absolutely need to. the new hardware coming up will give you more performance for the same money (or just save money if you keep the current config)

Not at his price points, the new CPUs are higher end as well the new gpus.

The only thing I would change is save on the mobo and get a B550 Pro4 that is around 100$ and its a solid mobo and use the money left for other parts.
