Lookin for feedback on my build (1st PC)

Budget (including currency): 1500 cad

Country: Canada

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Majority multitasking, but want to play league, Minecraft, valorant,

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): 

 

Current build is this

Going to buy the parts tonight probably. Plan is to use onboard graphics and buy a 3060 GPU later when it's cheaper. Looking for any comments on the build, so I know I'm not messing up.
Any comments are greatly appreciated (good or bad) also a deal on a GPU would be nice :3 but not expected XD. 

 

Extra info:

using WIFI sadly

Sarah inspired me to build instead of buying prebuild

If you wish to use onboard graphics at the moment, you actually have the choice of going Intel 11th gen, which gives you a newer generation of integrated graphics. 

The SSD you've selected also seem to use SATA III,  instead of PCIe (or NVMe) which would give more performance.

Small nitpick, but instead of “western digital blue” I would get an SN550, which is NVME and faster than SATA

 

otherwise you seem pretty set

Ty, will change to SN550, honestly file transfer speed really matters to me

ITS ABSOLUTELY DOGSHIT, I MEAN IT'S AWESOME!!!

 

All I can say is that it's better than mine. Good job tho!

As Someone with the username “</TheCoder2019_”, my coding skills are atrocious.

As Someone at the age of 2.338 alien years (whatever that is), built a not terrible but a “gameable” system for $500 USD

As Someone with atrocious coding skills, knows more Unix/Bash more than CMD

 

Here are my specs:

Spoiler

 

MSI PRO-VLH H310M

Intel Celeron G4960 (2 whopping cores!)

GTX 1050 Ti 4GB

16GB (2x8) Cosair Vengeance LPX CL16 - 2400MHz

A Rosewill case I found on eBay (SRM-01B Black)

 

An old friend of mine - Intel stock cooler (temps through the roof like 90 C under load)

 

 

Linux Apps you NEED!

Spoiler

tmux

dhcpd

git

 

 


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hi! I love RGB! Who doesn't? Karens that don't have colorful lights on their Facebook page
