Dont buy the RBG stuff, Get a better CPU for the price. The Fans and Node Alone are going to cost you the difference between a 2600 and a 2700 or 2700x.

Would you recommend going for a ryzen 7 2700 with a b450 motherboard?

please use pc part picker for your lists so we can see prices and quickly recomend changes.

 

id get a diffrent PSU and cut the fans and RGB to finance that upgrade

I spent $2500 on building my PC and all i do with it is play no games atm & watch anime at 1080p(finally) watch YT and write essays...

Builds:

The Toaster Project! Northern Bee!

 

The original LAN PC build log! (Old, dead and replaced by The Toaster Project & 5.0)

Sorry, I'll edit the pc part picker link in

What kind of upgrade should I get for the PSU? Efficiency or Wattage? I searched up reviews for the PSU and they were all very good, it's semi-modular as well.

Do you really need RGB ram

Ryzen 5 1600 @ 3.9 Ghz  | Gigabyte AB350M Gaming 3 |  PaliT GTX 1050Ti  |  8gb Kingston HyperX Fury @ 2933 Mhz  |  Corsair CX550m  |  1 TB WD Blue HDD


Inside some old case I found lying around.

Price difference is minimal where I'm buying from. It's $7 cheaper than CORSAIR Vengeance LPX 3200 C16, and $0.70 more expensive than G.Skill Trident-Z 3200 C16.

Yeah it's fine, not really into the mini card. 

But if you're gonna get all that RGB wouldn't it be a waste when you put it in a case with no side panel?

I would recommend that your first priority is performance, value, then have RGB as an extra.

I can't really upgrade much if I were to not buy the RGB Case Fans + Node Pro. a better GTX 1070Ti doesn't make any difference which I would notice, a GTX 1080/Vega 64 is too expensive where I'm buying the parts as the shops are still selling older stock from the periods of inflated prices.

Upgrading the cpu to a 2700 doesn't really make too much of a difference in games too, only gonna be using this build for gaming + web browsing

The E500L has 2 variations, one with side panel and one without. Both are the same price at the shops I'm buying the parts at if I'm not wrong. Would you suggest another ATX case?

Well, I can't really boost the performance too much now without having to spend more money than I am now. R5 2600 to R7 2700 seems like a small jump in performance in game, don't think its worth the money.

If I were to not buy the RGB stuff, that extra money wouldn't be able to upgrade the 1070Ti to a 1080, as the 1080 prices are still pretty inflated at said shops.

That RGB RAM is actually the second cheapest 3200Mhz option, the cheapest being $0.70 cheaper for 2x8GB

A 1070ti with good cooling like the one i have will turbo up into way higher clocks and will only be limited by power. also, good cards will work longer becouse they will keep the core and memory way cooler. If you want to do it well, get a better cooled gpu.

also, a x370/x470 MSI pro carbon could be a better choise if you don't need the wifi. and if you do, a T2U from TP-link is like 20 bucks

I'll take into consideration the Motherboard upgrade.

I looked up reviews of the zotac 1070ti mini, and the performance was mostly the same(difference of like 10 fps max, could be in margin of error)

I'm planning to buy in person(time constraints). Basically the only shops in Singapore that sell PC Parts are selling every graphics card(besides 1060 and below) for inflated prices, as most of the stock came in during the time where GPU prices were really inflated. Only card that is feasible thats not 1060 or below is this zotac 1070ti mini.

The RAM prices are still inflated slightly, the G.Skill Trident Z RGB RAM is the same price as all the other 3200mhz 2x8gb ram, regardless of rgb

Also, I need the wifi on the motherboard, so I went for the one in the list.

RGB ram is whatever if the price difference is small. The fan selection, though.. My case fans are all Noctua. $100 for crappy Corsair fans is doing yourself an injustice.

Aren't all noctua fans like brown and beige? I know aesthetics isn't very important but if it's an eyesore I would spend a little bit more money to make sure it doesn't look so bad.
