 Share

Budget (including currency): 600 - 650 Euros

Country: Austria

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: mainly Programming ( GUI's and Websites) and Working ( MS Word etc.)

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): 

 

Here is my first build and I am a total Noob so I don't really know if something like this would work or is good.

https://geizhals.de/?cat=WL-2861148

CPU: Intel Core i5-12400, 6C/12T, 2.50-4.40GHz, tray (CM8071504555317/CM8071504650608)

RAM: Mushkin Redline White DIMM Kit 32GB, DDR4-3600, CL16-19-19-39 (MRD4U360GKKP16GX2)

Motherboard: GIGABYTE B660 DS3H AX DDR4

CPU - FAN: LC-Power Cosmo Cool LC-CC-120

Power-Supply: Super Flower Leadex III Gold ARGB 550W ATX 2.32 (SF-550F14RG)

Case: ENDORFY SilentiumPC Signum SG1 (SPC229)

additional fan's: Arctic P12 PWM PST schwarz, 5er-Pack, 120mm (ACFAN00137A)

 

If someone could tell me wheter this is a good config or if i should change something I would be pleased

 

Thanks for helping

Not only is 3600 cl16 not a great way to spend money because 3200 cl16 can be much much cheaper, but I’m not sure your cpu will even handle it. 3200 may be the max for that cpu/mobo combination.  Worth looking at anyway. I notice no discrete gpu. Programming is generally potato, though compiling likes threads.  The only thing I know of that isn’t gaming or arts stuff that likes serious cpu horsepower is complex spread sheet and research stuff, which it doesn’t sound like you are doing. I might even put you in a lower end cpu.  12100 or something even smaller.  That looks like a machine built for gaming but without the video card. No reason to buy 6/12 if you have no use for it.  There might be some other reason like cache or quality of iGPU or something. That’s also aa weird size for a PSU.  It’s hard to find a decent PSU under 400w but you don’t need even that much with a real-world 65w TDP for your cpu and no graphics card at all. Throw the extra budget at more monitor (that iGPU will do multi 4k in 2D)  ddr5 could be useful because integrated GPUs like it a lot, but the motherboards cost double even if the memory doesn’t anymore.  Another thing you can do with the extra money is shrink the size of the case.  Potentially quite a bit.  Going microATX usually costs less to boot. MiniOTX costs more.  In Austria apparently a LOT more.  The only itx boards available on pcpartpicker is a b550 ROG strix.  None of even the other Asus boards.  Just the ROG strix.  It’s double what you need,  I was expecting under €100 not over €200) this would be doable with an a320 board.  You have no use for pcie4, but really really small might be interesting. Here’s Something the size of a boot box (so bigger than a shoebox but not a lot bigger) which may or may not appeal to you…

Not a pro, not even very good.  I’m just old and have time currently.  Assuming I know a lot about computers can be a mistake.

 

Life is like a bowl of chocolates: there are all these little crinkly paper cups everywhere.

Notice how much lower the number is.  The Austria tax is something over €200
