Description

This is my first PC, I sold my Xbox one and all my games and got $550 I then bought all my components used for a total of $520 CAD . I'm only 15 so I won't be upgrading for a while, Tell me what you think

Overall great build. I'm using a lot of the same/similar parts in my build actually.

Obviously, your budget allows what your budget allows, and I get that...but I think you'd be much happier with investing in a SSD - at least for the OS. If you can swing another $40 or so, you should be able to get one in the 120GB range - enough to cram Windows 10 on and still have room for installation files & some storage.

Also, personally I'd look into either moving the PC up onto your desk area or at least invest in some sort of stand/riser that can support the weight of your PC. Having your PC running on the carpeted ground is a big no-no (in my opinion).

Other than that, I think you have a nice, solid build. +1 for your first PC build!

This is all you need man! Steam account and only buy games at 50% off or more! No more expensive Xbox games lol I have so many games I've bought that I haven nt played yet but they were so cheap lol

Pc and carpet is a no no, spending $200 on a 1000w PSU if definite overkill, you could have got an RX 470 or RX480 with the money you could have saved on your power supply. Nonetheless, better than a console. Good stuff.

Love it, gaming is starting to use more cores so the FX line is seeing new life with Vulkan and DX12

AMD 8 core and gaming, I like it. Console gaming will be a thing of the past and a word whispered in passing soon enough. You will undoubtedly lose and make some new gaming friends over this choice. Wise choice if you ask me. We have an Xbox One S in the house since Christmas for my oldest son who could care less about anything. It is great for a console but it cant even touch and 8350 and a good video card.
