This is what your build would cost in US dollars... with a better GPU and a 2TB drive.

 

Replace the CPU with a 13600K and whatever case/fans you want, to make it more relevant.

I've recently built a new gaming pc

 

The parts are as follows:

Msi pro b660m-a ddr4 wifi

i7-12700k

Corsair Vengeance 3600MHz 2×16GB

Deepcool AG620 

Asus dual RTX 4060

Lexar 512GB ssd

WD 2TB hdd

EVGA 800GE 

And finally a case with 7 pre-installed fans with a controller 

 

I've spent on this pc a little less than $1200 but i round it to $1200 to include the windows 11 licenses 

 

Was it a good build for the price and if you were to change anything what would it be ( Note : it shouldn't go above the $1200 mark )

I think you could have gotten a better SSD than that - but W build overall for $1200

AMD 3600x, 16GB DDR4 3200MHz CL14, GTX 1080, and Ungodly Amounts of Storage

Are you in the USA?  Or converting to $1200 US?  

 

You can toss the parts into pcpartpicker.com and it will tell you the cost of the machine roughly if you built it today.

 

I'd change a few things.  Lose the HDD, lose the 4060, PSU may not be what I would get, and I wouldn't pay for Windows at all.  And I wouldn't get a 12700K these days.

No i am not from the USA but i calculated how much i spent on it and converted it to US dollars 

 

Can you tell what would you choose for parts for the same price?

Yeah sorry i forgot 

 

I am from Bahrain ( probably it's your first time hearing about it , it's in the middle east ) 

 

Some parts like the case and psu it was wayy high in shipping so i found a deal on the psu i mentioned earlier it was $20 for the shipping 

 

For the case i bought it locally cuz what ever i found a case on either Amazon or newegg it's always about $100 for shipping alone

Yeah, so you could have gone with a non wifi motherboard and spend like 5-10 bucks on a decent wifi card and could have increased the ssd capacity or gotten a nice gaming keyboard and mouse combo.

Where are these $5 decent wifi cards?

 

I mean we can probably find a $10 shit dongle, but a decent PCI wifi card isn't THAT cheap.
