Just put together my first "gaming rig" I went for a budget build as I don't want to spend too much, the specs are as follows 

Mobo- Asus ROG Strix Z490-F LGA 1200

CPU- Intel 10th Gen Core i3 10100F

Ram- T-Froce 16gb 3200mhz ddr4 

CPU Cooler Corsair H100i Elite Cappilex 

GPU- Don't ask me how or why but without any way of getting a card at a decent price much less at MSRP I, don't ask me how ended up with 2 GTS 450 1gb cards that I am running in SLI until I can find a new hopefully RTX card. 

 

Feel free to give me any opinions or any good ideas for possible upgrades down the road, Thanks guys!!

 

Update- forgot a few things listing the hard ware 

PSU-Corsair AX750 Pro 

Storage- Seagate Baracuda 1 tb hard drive

Did you buy fake gpus on wish and flash the bioses that they are supposed to have back to them and use a janky setup to do without a bridge?

 

If you answered yes, is your name Dawid?

Do you have a yt called DawidDoes TechStuff?

I could use some help with this!

please, pm me if you would like to contribute to my gpu bios database (includes overclocking bios, stock bios, and upgrades to gpus via modding)

This GPU is worse than Intel's igpu better to go for igpu process and sli works with GTX 1070 and upper version only.

You need an SSD, even if in small capacity. Get a 128 or 256gb NVME drive from brands like Crucial, Corsair, Samsung. And make sure its NVMe not a 2.5 inch drive. Power supply looks ok to me.

It’s a long story but I ended up with the 2 Gpus before I started putting the bold together and considering the shortage I figured they would work fine until I can get my hands on a 3060
