Looking for Advice on Build

chickfula1
  • 2 months ago

Purpose: Gaming- Bannerlord, GTA 5, RDR2 and future games for the next ~3 years.

I have ~$100 left to spend on this build. Im open to any suggestions. I really dont know what to upgrade or downgrade.

Planning to overclock if I can, but wont go out of my price range to do so.

Im not 100% sure about the Motherboard and Im confused on how AMD categorizes stuff and works out compatibility (generations and such). Is the motherboard good?

Regarding the case, I could care less for aesthetics, I really just care about optimization and practicality. A mid-tower would fit best on my desk. Any other recommended cases is helpful.

Thank you so much!

keep in mind that the CPU, wifi, and SSD didn't have prices.

Thank you for that. Is the Gigabyte Wi Fi Adapter good? Is it possible to get something cheaper?

I like the changes!
