More black than white but you get more bang for your buck if happy to sideline aesthetic requirements.

PSU is not great and you should really go for the latest generation ryzen if you can. If buying new and you really have to push white aesthetics in the knowledge you can get much more bang for the buck going plainer, the this is what I would do. With budget room for peripherals.

Thanks so much man! Those are great suggestions. I probably will go with an M atx build. Does the case have mobo standoff’s for that motherboard? Or do I need to change anything?

Nzxt will supply all necessary fixing kit components with the case. It is designed for matx boards.

That PSU doesn’t have the best reviews, though.

Make sure the reviews are for the black/white label rather than green/black. This is a solid PSU for the money, not the best, but not worst, and you are unlikely to have anything fail or it spontaneously burst into flames.

It looks nice. But, if you going to he doing alot of tasks with this pc then I dont think only a 500gb ssd will do.

nickk1352 1 point 1 month ago

I'll see what I can do with putting a build together for you. Also with a better gpu
