Building a budget gaming PC & need some suggestions ?

Go to solution Solved by Rooked,

If you can, get a Ryzen 3 3300x and a B450m Pro4, but if you cannot afford or the Ryzen 3 3300x is not available, stick with the i3 10100f. Your PSU is also really expensive for no reason. You can get a decent PSU with higher wattage for the upgrade path for lower price, the EVGA 500 BR. It's a decent PSU for your build, and should have no problems.

Budget (including currency): 500 USD

Country: Bangladesh

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: mainly focusing on Cyberpunk 2077, other new games, windows 10, office 2019

Other details (existing parts

If you guys have any suggestions whether I should go with this build or build a Amd pc instead. I'm low on budget. It's okay for me to go for 75 hz monitor. I need the 240 gb Sata ssd too. Cause I need storage.

That PSU is actually really dangerous. I'd advise going for the 500 BR rather than that piece of junk.

The PSU tier list. 

Last tier, considered dangerous.

https://linustechtips.com/topic/1116640-psucultists-psu-tier-list/

Ohhh that's the N1, I was thinking it was the W1, but it is the N1. EVGA should change up the design of their packaging.

 

Looking at reviews and the words by JonnyGuru "What a piece of garbage waste of money". Yup the N1 is garbo.

They haven't tested it then. We can't say anything about unknown PSU's, they may be good or bad.
