First pc build

Hi! I need a pc, keyboard and monitor for 600 dollars. 

 

My main focus here is upgradability I really don't have any brand preferences.

 

U.S. Btw

I would recommend an AMD-based build:

- The boards are cheaper (than Intel)

- You get more cores per dollar.

- The CPUs are cheaper

- Great gaming performance

- Future-proof (previous generation boards can support next-gen Ryzen processors until 2020)

- The stock kewlers don't suck.

 

Okey. Here's your system:

CPU: Ryzen 5 2600 Six-Core: $160

RAM: G.SKILL 2x4GB DDR4-2400: $65 (Overclock this, Ryzens love memory bandwidth)

GPU: Asus GTX 1050 Ti: $155

Mobo: Asrock AB350M: $50

SSD: WD Blue 250 GB 2.5-inch SSD ($53)

Case: Cougar MG110: $30 Compatible with all components and has great ventilation.

PSU: EVGA 500-watt PSU: $40

 

Grand total: $560.

I have no idea what I'm doing and no one can stop me.

You're not going to get a keyboard and monitor for $40.

Easily upgradeable:

 

A 2400g does fit into your budget. So does a decent SSD.

 

 

A 2600 six-core with a 1050 Ti also fits if you're careful.

Only if you ignore the fact that OP needs a monitor and keyboard, and that you need more than $40 to get those.

They're really cheap.

Also my mobo has a PS/2 port for those sweet Model Ms.

Build something like this instead....

Got in a discrete GPU...

Also, you can utilize the free sync provided in that monitor...

I understand the processor is a good choice, but having to buy a GPU and then sell it later to buy a better one seems like a lot of extra steps. The 2400g performs close to the 1050ti anyway.

Is it??

But the benchmarks show a different story. They say that it performs similar to gt1030. With gt1030 beating the 2400g in most of the cases. Yet alone, 1050ti is around 40% faster than 1030.

IDK where u got those numbers from.

in most of the cases

Sources?

 

Though you are right about the graphical performance, do you have a pcpartpicker link that fits into his budget with that build?

 

We don't really even know what OP wants to use it for. I assume gaming. Personally, I would rather have integrated graphics until enough money is saved for a GPU that is better than a 1050ti. I personally don't like to deal with the extra step of selling the GPU.

What do you think about this build?

An SSD is a small investment ND can be added later on, so skipped it.

Also, I hv added in a GPU that's faster than a 1050ti and a monitor that supports Freesync.

You have done well. I like SSDs to be added right away because people who are not tech savvy might not be able to easily clone their HDD to an SSD and then reformat the HDD. This is the case that they don't want to reinstall and lose all of their files.

 

I think your build is a good balance for the budget.

Or else he can do it the other way. Add in a SSD now and save up later for a HDD.
