Im looking to build a gaming pc. I want to run most games at 1080, high or ultra settings, with reasonable fps. Im right at my budget which is around 950 dollars. Correct me if im wrong but here is my logic 1. The new ryzen cpu's are just as good as intel i5 for the most part 2. AMD cards use free sync and those monitors are cheaper 3. An ssd is highly recommended for the OS and necesary applications

I need a monitor as my current one is very old and is used for a "workstation" piece of garbage pc. I kinda want a red theme but I care more about the price than looks, but I think this is a good balance? Any help is appreciated, but since I am kind of new I need to know about space management inside the case, power supply pin compatability, if that matter, and if anything is a very bad choice. Cheers!

I just changed a few things. The case you have should have enough fans so I saved you a bit of money and got rid of that extra one you put in. I also added in an SSD for you, it will make things run a lot faster for you if you put Windows on it. I also upgraded you to the RX 480.

Also, having 2 sticks of 4GB is better than 1 8GB stick. Dual channel is better.

So, I might have gotten a little carried away and went over your budget by a bit... whoops. If it's too expensive, I would recommend getting rid of the 1TB drive (you can always get one further down the road) and going back to the 570 instead of the 580.

Hopefully I could help!

Thanks a lot! I decided to go with the cheaper 570 because I am on a tight budget but I think I will use an ssd for the time being and the grab an hdd later, thanks for the tip!
