The main purpose for my build is to edit videos on Adobe and stream on twitch. My original budget was $1K but I managed to buy all the parts for around $886. I'm not planning to overclock it anytime soon since I'm still new to this and I mostly play on console. All the parts I purchased were brand new, I got most of them for the cheap :).
The CPU I selected was the Ryzen 5 2600x, the main reason I got it is because I was able to purchased it at a bargain price $183. I was originally planning to buy the 2700x but I couldn't pass on the deal. It came included with a stock cooler which save me money.
For the motherboard I went with the Gigabyte X470 Aorus Ultra Gaming. It works perfectly fine and it was cheap.
As for Ram I purchased G.Skill RipJaws V Series 16GB ( 2 x 8GB) DDR$-3000. I was able to get it for $145, It works fine and have no issues.
The storage's I got were the PNY 240 SSD ($55) and WD 1TB HDD ($44), both were on sale at Bestbuy.
My GPU was the most expensive part and difficult to select in my build, In the end I was able to get the Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1060 3GB 3GB for $203 Brand New. It was Actually $190 but I had to pay $13 shipping.
The case I chose was the NZXT S340, It's the white version. It's great for cable management. Again I chose this color because It was the cheapest one.
Power Supply I purchased EVGA 500W 80+ B1, I know there are better PSU out there but this was my first build. In the end I'm happy.
I didn't pay for windows 10 as I got the free version with the water mark, don't really bother me much to go spend $100.
I also bought two additional fans for the case, I did this cause the tutorial i saw the guy had four fans in his build for better air flow.
It's a great CPU, for $183 I'm happy with my purchase. It's capable of streaming and rendering videos fast. Saw many video reviews and it's a beast of a cpu.
For the price of $140 I can't complain, Since it was my first build I was confused but it works.
I purchased the ram for $145, It's enough ram for my tasking needs.
For $55 It was a steal, It boots windows and Adobe extremely fast.
It's more than enough storage for my needs, for $44 it's a great price.
So far it's been great, I may need to do some more testing but for $203 ( $190+ $13 shipping) it's a great purchased since I don't really do PC gaming. I know there's a 6GB version but my offer got accepted so I took it..
It's a beautiful case, big enough for cable management, although for my next build I may go for the elite
It was on sale and it works, I have no complains. Since this was my first pc build I didn't feel like spending lots of money. Although I do regret not getting a full modular one but I can live with it. It's really quiet and anyone looking for a cheap psu this is it.
Bought these for better air flow and aesthetic purposes ($8 each on Amazon)
