Hi everyone, I’m so happy as I finally bought the last component for my new pc After 8 months (yeah… I basically had an intern salary, so it took me a looong time to save and source for good deals) so here are the parts.
CPU: Ryzen 5 1500x
Basically it fitted right in the budget. The ryzen 3 series was ok but wanted something more beefy as I use my computer for other stuff besides gaming, and the rizen 1600 was a tad too expensive (at the time I bought it, the difference between the two was around 25dlls in my country).
MOBO: Gygabyte GA-AB350 Gaming 3
All the 350chipset motheboards were around the same ballpark, I choose this one because it has 5.1/7.1 audio output and some fancy LED strips.
GPU: Zotac GTX 1060 6GB
Damn miners! Originally I planned to get the MSI GTX 1060 x 6G but it was way overpriced and it didn’t last more than 2 days in stock, so when I saw a good deal on this v-card I pulled the trigger. It has some nice reviews, the only downside is it doesn’t fit the black/red theme of the rest of the PC.
RAM: Corsair Vengeance DDR4 2x8GB 2666MHz
The cheapest 16GB kit I found. It has some nice leds tho.
PSU: EVGA 500W
Pros: got it very very cheap (almost 50% off), very good reviews on amazon
Cons: isn’t modular and it comes with ugly catsup/mustard color cables
SSD: Kingston UV400 256GB
I got a nice deal for it (good reviews as well). Should be enough for Windows 10, main programs and my favourite steam games.
HD: Seagate Barracude 1TB
Inexpensive hard drive (less than 50dlls for a TB). Almost everyone have one.
Case: Corsair Spec-01
Fairly old model, but it was the cheapest case I could get from a reputable brand with a very good build quality. It came with one LED fan.
Cooling: 2x Corsair AF120mm fans
Since I’m not overclocking atm, I decided to use the stock amd cooler and buy a couple of case fans. Got’em with a decent discount. Plus LEDs!
Monitor: Random Acer 24inch monitor
Amazon > filer by 4 or high stars > only free shiping or prime > only 24" > sorted by less expensive
Keyboard: CoolerMaster Devastator II
Budget “gaming oriented” combo. Looks nice but feels cheap, especially the mouse. I usually type at night, so the backlights come in handy.
Other: Random No-break UPS
Got it for like 40% off. Good reviews, and although it doesn’t hold charge for that much, it’ll give me time to at least save and close before turning off.
Ethernet cable, usb flashdrive and an antistatic wristband (also bought other stuff but it’s not related to gamming)
I’m planning to built my new rig this sunday, hope everything goes well, so I can finally play the UE4 version of the game without my laptop catching fire (and decent graphics)
