Part List for another friend


Another friend of mine is wanting me to build a pc for him and his max budget is $575 (Technically $600, but ya know Windows is required). He will play games like fortnite, pubg, etc. Does not include peripherals 


I was thinking of getting him a 2400g so he could save up for a 1050ti later, but I'm not sure what route to go. I was also looking at an i3 8100, but then he'll need to save up for a dedicated GPU to play any games. 



Edit: He's ok with anything that'll run at PS4 pro graphics settings at 1080p 60fps.

dont pay retail for windows.  at very least, buy a discount version or just use the free version.


ps4 pro is probably equal to a gtx 1050 ti


i think 2200g is a better investment and put the extra money to the gpu


i3-8100 isnt needed, 2200g is fine. 


with 60 fps cpu doesnt matter much
