are you just playing minecraft? For minecraft its pretty overkill (unless you are going to be using ray tracing or high detail shaders)

Honestly I would go ryzen (a 5600x or similar) 16gb of ram (32 is very overkill for gaming at dis point) Get a decent b550 mobo for 130$ and keep the case and PSU

that gpu is fine

Heres an odd route where itll be futureproof and fine for a looong while, if you pick up any extra workloads in the future that requires extra ram or gpu then you got the ram and you can add a gpu in later, you even got 8 cores


Cause its igpu i reccomend overclocking the balls off the igpu (1.3-1.4v soc for 2300-2500mhz igpu) and aim for 4500+ cl18 minimum on rams, pref as high as possible while keeping fclk synced, ballistix oc very well so 4500+ cl18 ~1.6v is a breeze as long as you know what you are doing or happen to have a high ram oc profile or reference (buildzoid has ballistix oc vids and general info on ram oc so have a look at his channel)



If you are just running minecraft and doing basic tasks a 4th gen prebuilt like an optiplex will suffice so you may also consider that route

Nothing in this build makes sense. First, there's not even a price listing for the 2060S, so this system will likely be $300+ over budget. Second, the 8700K is not worth anywhere close to $350, the i5 12400 demolishes it for $170. Also $250 for a, quite frankly, terrible motherboard is an absolute ripoff. If you already own it, then keep running it, but unless you already own it (you don't say that you do), you can do a lot better for this system. The only thing from this parts list I'd actually recommend you buy is that case and maybe the RAM.




This system will be faster and actually in budget.
