I built this for a friend here recently who had a strict $1000 budget which had to include tax. I did this including new and used parts. She streams on Twitch @ marsloane!
Not A bad Build, got any tips bc i want to build one soon for myself
The only thing I have in mind is that if you are going for 3rd gen ryzen be careful that only x570 motherboards support them out of box. With B450s you need a bios update.
B450 MAX motherboards exist.
I did not know they support out of box :(
the most important thing, in my opinion, is knowing what you are gonna use it for. if you are gonna stream you have to go a different direction than just a strictly gaming build. also, getting a combination of new, like new or used parts has worked for the last two builds i’ve done, saving around $100-$150 on both builds.
Cool Thanks, last time i asked someone for advice i got this "dont die". Glad i got something useful finaly
that’s not cool, if you ever have any questions just leave them here and i’ll get back to you. i love building computers and helping people with building and setup!
Getting a trash old one from where my dad works, gonna disassemble it, reassemble it, benchmark then create a upgrade list. is that a good idea or should i just keep saving and forget it?
if the PC has good components inside it might be worth, but imo with most pre-built computers you have a lot of cheaper low end parts and you spend just as much making it good as you would building a new computer.
