1000 CAD pc for my friend

it's a good build, besides dropping down the gpu to a 1050 or lower, you can't save much money there

Well, I believe I have seen GTX 1060 6GB cards on amazon for less than 400$ (maybe in the 360$ range). In addition, I think he would be fine with 120gb ssd since it would be mainly just a boot drive and hdd would be for games. You could also downgrade the CPU to the 1500x or something if 1000$ is a hard limit.

 

Edit: But yeah, what you have selected is ideal.

I'd probably go this route. It's still over budget, but a little better.

 

PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant

CPU: AMD - Ryzen 5 1400 3.2GHz Quad-Core Processor  ($186.87 @ Amazon Canada)
Motherboard: Gigabyte - GA-AB350-Gaming ATX AM4 Motherboard  ($99.99 @ Memory Express)
Memory: G.Skill - Ripjaws V Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-3000 Memory  ($209.99 @ Newegg Canada)
Storage: ADATA - XPG SX6000 128GB M.2-2280 Solid State Drive  ($59.99 @ Memory Express)
Video Card: Gigabyte - GeForce GTX 1060 6GB 6GB WINDFORCE OC 6G Video Card  ($439.00 @ Vuugo)

Power Supply: Corsair - CXM (2015) 450W 80+ Bronze Certified Semi-Modular ATX Power Supply  ($68.99 @ Mike's Computer Shop)
Total: $1134.82

 

It should meet the budget if you knock the RAM down to 8GB, though I wouldn't advise it.

Just tell your friend to save up a little longer.

 

I'd also suggest looking at the used market for CPU, RAM, and other components if they're made by EVGA.

Youre gonna need the 16 gb ram believe me, and 2400 mhz wont do for a ryzen cpu, go with this build instead

@Jtalk4456 @Cody040

Lower speed RAM does affect Ryzen, but not as much as people seem to think.

For example, the video card you selected is going to have a much worse impact on performance.

the reason i didn't go with 16 gb of ram is personally unless i have a load of things open i use about 7 of my 16 added with the fact of memory prices. it is one of the easiest things to upgrade down the line so if it turns out to be too little we can always do that

that list looks good, i'm just not sure i would trust a ssd from a brand i've never heard of to keep my data safe and not fail, also it would be nice to get a full atx board for future expansion with drives and stuff

do you think a quad core would be enough for streaming and playing games like pubg?

Hey!

 

Have you considered going micro atx? You can save a little bit on that. As you said you get later get more ram.

i think i might go with something like this, you managed to shave $70 or so off and other then the fact that i'm not a huge fan of micro atx it's more or less the same

It has SMT. So it's similar to last generations i7. Was that good enough for streaming and games like PUBG?

Well, me neither. But 1600 and 1060 are not very hot components so it does not matter much.
