Thanks for your reply. Thought about the Seasonic, but those PSU's seem to have (had) issues, didn't want to risk it.
Alright, I'll keep that in mind.
Thank you for your reply. I'll look into the mobo and RAM. I wasn't planning on overclocking anything though.
That storage might not be enough, with Windows and a few games it will be full pretty quickly. You could always add a hdd later. I'm going to build a pc soon aswell and I'm going with a 500gb ssd, might add an hdd later.
Nice build, I was wondering, what do you think of the case? Anything good/bad to point out?
I adjusted a few things, this is what I want to go for:
PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant
I'm keeping the Ryzen 5 2600, I wasn't sure which one I wanted because the 2400G has a iGPU. What do you think about the Sapphire nitro+ RX 580? A bit more expensive, but seems to have very good value. The 1660s and vega 56s are a bit expensive for me.
Why change RAM to 3200? It's about €20-25 more, is that worth it?
Think I'm gonna go for it, thanks!
I've changed my mind! I was thinking, this is the first PC I'm going to build, it better be decent. So I'm not settling for the Ryzen 2400G, instead I'm going for the Ryze 5 2600 with a video card. I've also changed the mobo, storage and case. Mobo and storage because I've been told these are better than the previous I had and case because I went from a mATX mobo to ATX. This is what I got now:
What do you think? I haven't really looked into the video cards yet, so I will probably change it aswell.
Yeah I know, so you prefer the Meshify over the NZXT? If so, why?
Compared to the define mini? I've actually decided to get a ATX mobo, so I think I'm going with the NZXT.
Nice, I'll check out the case. Thanks for all your help :)
I think a PCI card would be best, but I'm a noob at this aswell. You should google it, there must be a lot of information on it.
I've actually read in a review the case doesn't cool very well, so I might need to reconsider. Although there is space for 6 fans, so I could always add some extra fans in case it would get too hot.
The Ryzen 2400G seems good for me, I think that's the one I'm going for.
This is what I got now:
I went for the Ryzen 5 2400G like the other guy suggested. It seems to be good enough for me right now. In the future I could always add a dedicated GPU. Same goes for a harddrive, if I need it I'll get it. For now I'd like to save the money.
The case you suggested is partially made of plastic, which I don't really like. I don't really mind the glass either. So I went for a steel case which is a little more expensive, but I think it will last for a long time. All the GPU's I've found can fit easily and there seems to be enough space for fans and whatever.
So the total price is a little lower than my budget, but in a couple of years I might add a GPU and harddisc. If this setup seems to be fine for me I might wait 5-10 years and upgrade most of the components.
That's my idea, what do you think?
Alright, you convinced me, I'll get the 16GB RAM. I'll think some more about what GPU I want if I want one. Might just go for the one you suggested, not sure. And I'll find a good case to fit everything in :)
Thanks for the advice! Some more information I can think about. I was thinking of not getting a GPU (yet) since I'm not sure if I'll need it or not, I will check out the Ryzen 2400G.
You're really helpfull, thanks :) This is actually harder than I thought, because I don't know where technology is going and I don't know my own future. Who knows I might have kids in 5 years!
The thing is, I'm not a hardcore gamer and I never play the newest game, for instance about a year ago I played Far Cry 2. So I'm not looking particularely for components who don't get outdated quickly, but for components who physically last for a long time (seems impossible to figure out what's best in that regard). Or do you mean compatibility with future components?
I'm not sure how much I'm going to use the PC, that's why I don't want to spend more than necessary, but still have the option to upgrade in case I'm going to spend more time on it and get more into the video making.
I think I,m going with the CPU and motherboard you suggested. I'm pretty sure I'm going with a SSD only, but not sure if I'll get 500GB or 1TB. Memory I'm still thinking 1 8GB, because I probably don't need 16. Or is it complicated/more expensive to get 1 8GB and a few years later another? Power supply seems good for me aswell, I'm pretty sure I will get one around 550W. I'm not sure about the videocard and case, I'd need to look into that some more. My plan is to build this PC in august, so I have plenty of time to figure thigs out.
One more question, why would a power supply get outdated?
Oh wow, thanks! This helps a lot. €1000 is my budget for now, I'm planning on upgrading the PC later. For instance I was planning on not getting a hard drive yet, since I might have enough storage with just the SSD and I wanted to get 1 module of 8GB memory instead of 2 for now. Also I'm not sure, but I might have windows 10 lying around somewhere, so that lowers the price aswell :)
The video card seems really good value! I was wondering, what is the reason you picked this motherboard and power supply? Those are the two components I'm concerned the most about and the ones I want to keep for a long time (~25 years or so).
I'm sorry, you're right. How do I make a list? I'm new to this. I will be located in the Netherlands when I purchase the PC. My budget is €700-800, but I'm willing to go up to 1000 if necessary.
