I got no idea how to build a pc

Budget (including currency): 1800

Country: US

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: I play a lot of Far cry, destiny 2, csgo, Escape from tarkov, etc

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 bought a prebuilt when I was a kid a ROG G20AJ and I'm running a ASUS VG248QE monitor

I'm planning on giving this computer to my brother and building a new one and would really appreciate if someone could recommend me builds or helping me build my own.

How does that storage thing work? Would it have 5TB? Also what's the difference between the storages like IHD and SSD?

Yes you will get 5TB total.

1 TB for the system and programs. This will use the faster SSD Drive.

4 TB for everything else. This will use the slower IHD aka Hard Disk Drive.

Thanks a lot man imma just look into what you sent me and plan on probably making that tbh, how would I know all the parts work together and how to build it? Is there anyone you could recommend to look into how to do all this?

A HDD is a hard drive. It has physical spinning disks to store data. Slower than SSD's

A SSD is solid state drive. It uses charges to store information. Some SSD's are faster than others but generally its PCIE and NVME > SATA

 

You would have 5 TB in total

why didnt you choose a rtx 3080?

Any Help is appricated! Please correct me if I´m wrong!

Sorry for grammer/spelling mistakes, but english is not my native language (it´s german in case you were curious) *expand to see builds*

 

Primary PC: *planned* CPU: AMD 5600X / 5800X | GPU: 3070ti (When released) | RAM: CORSAIR Vengeance 2X16 = 32GB @ 3600MHZ DDR4 | MOBO: MSI MAG X570 TOMAHAWK WIFI | COOLER: Be Quiet! Silent Loop 280 (Planning for custom watercooling in spring 2021 after I bought the GPU) | CASE: DEEPCOOL Matrexx 55 V3 ADD-RGB | PSU: CORSAIR RM850 2019 80+ GOLD | SDD: CRUCIAL MX500 250GB |

Everything thats not colourful I haven't bought yet.

 

Secondary PC: CPU:  INTEL Q8200S @ 2.33Ghz | GPU: GTX 750 ti / 760 | RAM: 4X2 = 8GB @ 800MHZ DDR2 OCZ Platinum | MOBO: ASUS P5E-VM SE | COOLER: Be Quiet! Silent Loop 280* | CASE: DEEPCOOL Matrexx 55 V3 ADD-RGB* | PSU: CORSAIR RM850 2019 80+ GOLD* | SSD: CRUCIAL MX500 250GB* 

Everything marked with * is what I bought for the Primary PC and I'm just using it until I get all the parts.

The user manual should do a fine enough job. But I would like to make a few changes to the original list.

You may want to look into something like a Corsair RM instead. Do you need 32 GB? if not and there is a sizable difference in price between a 16 gb kit, go 16 gb instead.

You can just bring my list to a computer shop let them handle the build.

Most of the parts in interchangeable with similar model from other brands.

If they don't have it, ask them for a similar subtitution.

Or you can just buy them online and bring it all to the shop for a build fee.

I would prefer a 32GB if you think it would be worth it in the long run cause I plan to have this computer for a while.

So are you saying I should get a new monitor to work with newer parts or is my monitor fine?

but the question is, do you need it? are you going to do things that are rather RAM intensive? like are you going to video edit, 3d rendering, etc. Not that you can't go 32 Gb (after all I did) but there is a point of diminishing returns once you go high capacity

I don't think I will be, I do a lot of photoshop but its not too intense, everything else is just video games and watching youtube.

If I plan on a 16 for now are they swappable or? Like could I just take the 16 out and put in the 32?

PSU. if you plan to carry forward this build, go 750 watt and a better quality PSU. I recommend the Corsair RM 750 watt. I have it and its pretty nice

oh no don't swap. instead, just buy the same kit again and insert it into the other slots.
