Location: Canada (Memory Express location within driving distance)
Budget: Price to performance. I’m looking for the best value but it doesn’t need to be the cheapest.
I built this budget computer for the kids to play Minecraft, Roblox, Fortnite, watch Youtube, etc. Some of the parts were new and some were ones I had on hand.
They have also now started playing Apex Legends, CoD Warzone and games on Steam.
I recently purchased the EVGA RTX 2060 6 GB KO Ultra hoping that would be enough.
I’m looking for feedback on what other upgrades can be done or is it better to not put any more money into this one and start over later in the year (post-COVID). I feel that the RAM needs to be increased to 16GB and possibly faster.
If the Ryzen 5 1600 AF was available in Canada for $85 USD I would definitely do that.
I have put the monitor on the list since it was one of the parts I had on hand and I feel this is also something that can be improved.
The case also needs more fans – currently have one in the front and one in the back.
