so now that Ive got a little money saving towards getting my first PC, these build 'IDEAS' are becoming a little more real of a possibility. I think i want to keep total budget for PC, peripherals, 144hz 1ms monitor, and such at or under 1500, so im thinking for the PC itself im looking to stay around 1k. Went for a AMD build just because its better bang for buck in budget builds, no clue on MOBO just went for full ATX, RAM went for 3000 and 16GB with good reviews, Memory went with 500GB of SSD knowing i can add a HDD if i want, GPU went for 580 8gb no other real motives besides that it was OC and reviewed well, power supply went with best bang for buck with either full or semi mod and minimum 550 watts. Need an OS and capture card to stream Xbox1 gameplay. Waiting on choosing a case at the moment to see what people have to say.

Open to critiques and suggestions or just a simple hey this looks like a good build. I have never built a PC before so Im always looking to learn and up for suggestions.

Thanks in advance.

If I was you I'd question how much streaming your xbox gameplay is actually important to you because in my opinion I'd rather spend the money on gettig an rtx 2060 or something else as my pc would become my main gaming and streaming setup anyway. https://pcpartpicker.com/list/gxmQQZ

The RTX 2060 is a much better video card.

If someone is going to be spending $100 for windows 10 they should get fullversion not oem and that headset is really bad, hyperx stinger would be worth the extra just in terms of comfort alone but I think they'rr also a bit better in sound quality.

This is in budget add the price of the others and it's not.

You can always buy something better if you have more money.

For windows full version most people don't need it. Their not building more than one PC and by the time it needs updating your probably looking at W11. I have used a OEM version on 3 different builds and all 3 activated.

So? There's no reason to get OEM version when Full is $10 more. And I'm sure he can spare a few bucks to get a better headset like Hyperx cloud stinger.
