i do plan on upgrading my graphic card in the future. But that would probably happen in about 4-6 years or so.

what would be the difference between the 3000MHz and the 3200MHz? I know the 3200MHz is faster but what other difference is there? If price was not an issue (which is not), would the 3200MHz be an issue?

Okay great. I think I'll keep many of the already present components since I like having them in build.

So if I wanted to upgrade a little bit more on my GPU to be an ATX 1070 or higher. I'd have to buy a monitor supports the gsync for the GPU.

Other than that i'd say I like to build how it is.

Btw. Are there any recommendations on things like thermal compound and stuff Luke that?

I really do like this build. I'll use it ad my build from now on. Thank you for helping me out understand and pick out the parts.

My only one concern is the price. Now by that I don't mean it's to expensive... I think the budget is to low. So I have only two friends that are PC players. Both their build are around the $2,000 budget. Which does make me feel as if my build is lesser than theirs. Of course their builds are Intel based which explains a lot but I only wonder if my build could only be better if I wasn't afraid to extend the budget.

Is my current build, this $1,400 build which has an 8gb GPU, 16gb ram, and ryzen 5 2600 CPU worth being able to play well. Like video game well.

Now I know it's going to be difficult to be playing games like Pubg, Tomb Raider, etc. on max settings of course. But I'm wondering if I'm still going to be able to have that performance power to play games on really good settings.

I know performance first. So I'm wondering if this build is really any good?

Thanks~

So which monitor would you choose? I think the 144hz is better just cause its a better deal for a 144hz monitor. would a 178° H x 178° V monitor become uncomfortable?

I replaced the GPU. Are there any other things I should take a look at?

All this information on PC building is sort of overwhelming. There is so many things besides the actual build. such as: windows installation, screen tearing, overclocking (0% knowledge), screen tearing, bottle necking etc.

Ok great! This helps me a lot! i'll switch the GPU to the RX 580.

I was recently recommended this monitor: https://pcpartpicker.com/product/vdvbt6/acer-ed242qr-abidpx-236-1920x1080-144hz-monitor-ed242qr-abidpx It has a higher refresh rate and is a tiny bit cheaper. The only thing I noticed was the high viewing angle. What are the affects of the view angle compared to the 170° H x 160° V.

I really do like the case since it's white (my theme for the build). I actually don't know much about airflow and how many fans are needed. If I were to keep the case (which i might) would I need to buy additional fans?

thanks, but can you explain what makes it better besides the price?

The max budget is $1,400. I already bought the $160 CPU

Can you elaborate even more on what freesync is and how it's a better choice than the GTX 1060.

I already bought the AMD Ryzen 2600, so my build will be AMD based. I'm just wondering if i need to buy other brackets to fit on the motherboard instead of the already available.

other than that, what's your opinion on the performance once this $1,400 PC is built?

mostly meant for gaming. some AAA titles but not many and RGB is definitely appealing but the not required. i'm going for a white theme with a little of light blue. my budget is around $1,300 for everything included.

thanks for the reply.I do intend small games like CS:GO but deep down I really want to play PUBG and H1Z1 but thts pushing it.

I do want this build to be a good build as I don't really plan on playing casual but maybe one going competitive. I will probably upgrade in a few years or so.

thanks, I was planing on play ESports games like CS:GO. although, i was kind of hoping on playing games like PUBG and H1Z1 with ease but i'll guess ill just upgrade my PC later.

I don't plan on overclocking my PC as I don't know much about overclocking and don't want to handle something I have limited knowledge of.

thanks for the opinion. I would upgrade...if I wasn't a 15 year old without a job lol. i'll probably upgrade in the future.

any ideas on ho to make it cheaper. when i go to the completed builds and search "ryzen 5 1600" and "gtx 1060". they're build are way cheaper than mine going up to $800 and im here with a $1,200 PC build "idea".

Thanks. I'm asking because I'm doing my first ever PC build and was just wondering. Chances are I won't try overclocking at all for this build.
