New Build <$1800

Budget (including currency): $1,800

Country: US

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Deep Rock Galactic, Elden Ring, Baldurs Gate III

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): https://pcpartpicker.com/list/zk7wY9 If a site isn't noted then I can get it for the price listed at Microcenter.

 

I never thought I'd be asking for advice here, but after helping dozens of others I find the tables turned since I've been out of the building game for 6 years! Can anyone offer any critique on the parts list linked above? Thanks!

I'm a noob, but it looks fine to me. Only thing I'd say is you may want some more storage. There's good 2TB hard drives for pretty cheap ($50-$70 ish range). That should work fine since you already have that M.2 SSD.

You can actually squeeze a 3080 in that. The MSI is a very good PSU. A little bit cheaper than the RMx, but the fan is a tiny bit louder. As much as I love to swear by Noctua, you can do just as well for a lot cheaper to make room for the 3080.

I'm assuming you went with the motherboard because of this combo and not to overclock?

I'm not actually trying to be as grumpy as it seems.

My sister basically downloads nothing, just the games she's actively playing. I think she's using 300gb right now. Thanks!

Thanks! That's sick. Much appreciated! And yes, that's why I chose that motherboard. I'm going to OC, but it will be very modest.

 

Edit: no, my mistake. That bundle is for the DDR5 mobo. It's just the $20 off for compatible mobo bundle.
