Sketchy three step build plan

So okay, I know this is sketchy af, but here's my plan:

 

1) Get these parts now:

PCPartPicker part list: https://de.pcpartpicker.com/list/836DGf
Price breakdown by merchant: https://de.pcpartpicker.com/list/836DGf/by_merchant/

You'll notice they don't feature RAM or a GPU, that's because I'll get the cheapest 4GB DDR4 stick I can find (seems to be about 44€ according to PcPartspicker) and because I have an old GPU laying around at home, the name escapes me at the moment. Should be sufficient though.

 

2) Get these parts soon(ish)

1060 & decent RAM (I was thinking 16GB Corsair Dominator Platinum 3200)

 

3) In the long run

Ditch the 1060 in favour of a 1080ti, because all dem sweet FPS.

 

Saving up the money for the 1080 will probably take me a few months (my job doesn't exactly pay well :/), but it'll be worth it I think.

 

I know this is probably dumb, but I am currently only rocking an about 4 years old laptop, which stutters and freezes watching Netflix, and I am sick and tired of that thing. I already have a monitor and a mouse/keyboard combo.

 

Any thoughts/suggestions? ^^

 

I should probably mention I'd be able two buy all the parts for step 1 right now...

75% of what I say is sarcastic

 

So is the rest probably

get a stick of 8gb over a stick of 4gb, what old GPU do you have laying around, it might actually be worse than iGPU.

 

buy a nice higher midranged GPU and then upgrade to the next generation's flagship if you want.

Ryzen 5 3600 stock | 2x16GB C13 3200MHz (AFR) | GTX 760 (Sold the VII)| ASUS Prime X570-P | 6TB WD Gold (128MB Cache, 2017)

Samsung 850 EVO 240 GB 

138 is a good number.

Yea I guess 8GB shouldn't be too terribly expencive either...

 

As I mentioned, the name escapes me, but it's a card a friend of mine gave me when he upgraded. He was able to play PUBG @1080p on low to medium settings, so it should suffice for now. And it's free xD

So you're saying go with a 1060 or even 1070 and stick with it until the next generation (1180?) drops?

I don't know PUBG but that sounds like something around a R9 280 / GTX 670/760/770/960

should be better than iGPU, you'll want to kill yourself over 4GB of ram. 8GB is the bare minimum for me, and 16gb is the recommended

go for a 1070/1070ti

wait until next gen drops

see if you really want that new performance; if you do, sell.

if not, skip that generation and wait for the next. 

 

waste more money in the end, but you can play games at a more comfortable resolution/quality/framerate if you're playing at over 1080p.

So 8GB it is. Food is overrated anyways :P

remember

1x 8GB because you can get 3 more sticks of 8GB later.

Don't buy half the system. Coffee Lake prices, RAM prices and GPU prices are inflated atm. Save up, and buy the whole system at once

No, I won't. The mobo is mini itx and only supports 2 RAM sticks. Plus since I'm planning to swap out the entire RAM anyways, I think I'll go with 2x4

personally id get a 1050ti and save the money from not buying a 1060 and put it towards a 1080ti, i feel as if a 1060 is too big of an investment to replace in im assuming a year
