First PC Ever . Any changes to be made?

 Share

Budget (including currency): £1500

Country: United Kingdom

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: F1 2020(and others in future), Minecraft, Asseto Corsa, BeamNG and more.

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 have never built a PC before and i am hoping to get some advice on the things that ive currently chosen with the help of my dad,because he knows his way around computers . I want a good upgrade path for the future. Main priority at the moment is good graphics and fast processing and a moderatly cheap budget for a decent pc.
  • I don't have a monitor yet but i have a max limit of 15.7 inches(400mm) of height on stand.

You wont need 32gb of memory, I would get 16gb, but at a faster speed, 3200 or faster, make sure it is cl16 or lower. And you overpaying on the gpu. The 5600g will be enough to run the games, but at a lower quality until you can get a gpu: F1 2020:

Lots of other games:

2x16gb (so you will have room to upgrade), for first PC I'd take some B550 board it will suits for normal (non heavy OC) usage. R5600x - you do not need iGP with Video Card.

But pricing is weird so you might want to get 5600g - just remember its slower than 5600x:

P.S.: 5600g will be better for the buck.

The Intel i5 cpu's are currently better value.

 

I would do something like this:

 

If you do decide to stick with Ryzen then please change that MSI X570 board as it is terrible. A B550-A PRO would be a massive improvement.

 

**Looks like the 6600XT is discontinued from that site so you will have to look for something else** I wouldn't pay £400+ for a 1660ti though.
