You can get a much bigger SSD for only $10 more.
Unless you're planning on heavy overclocking that CPU cooler is excessive. You could get a decent RGB AIO for cheaper that would work great for mild overclocking, or a plain HSF for that will cool it plenty.

can I buy a new video card

Yup, so long as your PSU can handle it any video card should work fine.

and possibly RAM

As long as its DDR3 RAM, yes. Not sure what's up with the 12butactually8 thing, but 8GB is fine for modern use for the most part.

Do you specifically need W10 Pro? Motherboard has sound already, unless you specifically want it that can go too.
There are better coolers in the same price range as the ML240L, they just wont look as cool.

Could give you a few extra fps depending on the game. The 2600 isn't ideal for 144Hz gaming, but the ideal is a fair bit more expensive.

Buildtimeboys 1 Build 1 point 23 days ago

I'm by no means a PSU expert, I've just been told by others who know way more than me that it's not a great choice anymore. The CXM is a three year old design, vs the S12II's eight or so years.
The G3 I mentioned, while more expensive, is a solid (and newer) model.

You prefer the Scythe over the Noctua?

No real preference, this cooler is just better and cheaper than the U14S. (It performs close to a NH-D15)

And as for the storage, would the speed for booting up the computer/games for the 860 be any different than the 960?

I will be a tiny bit slower. See here.

Buildtimeboys 1 Build 1 point 23 days ago

You can get a RX-580 for a bit cheaper than that 1060, and will perform about the same. I mentioned it because the monitor supports freesync which only works with AMD gpu's.
(Freesync eliminates screen tearing by synchronizing the refresh of the monitor to match the framerate of the gpu.)

For 60-75 fps in games, the R5-2600 and i5-8600K will perform much the same, and the 2600 is significantly cheaper.
Twice as much RAM, and faster
Much bigger SSD
Cheaper and better PSU
75Hz monitor (It has freesync so would be better with and AMD GPU, but there were no white ones in the same price range as that 1060.)

I'd look at a 8600K with a 1080Ti instead. The 8600K is cheaper than the 8700 and offers better single core performance. (It trades off multi-core for it, but that's less important for gaming.)
It will largely depend on what games you want to play though.

The RX-580 and GTX-1060 are pretty close in terms of power. 1060 will do better for some games, and the 580 for others.
I chose the 580 because its a bit cheaper & offers support for freesync if you go for a higher refresh monitor.

You can find used GTX 1050's in that range, also GTX 570/580/670's.

Buildtimeboys 1 Build 1 point 1 month ago

An i7 8700 and a 1060 will do better, so 1080p 144hz will be no problem.
1440p on a 1060 at ultra will struggle, but on medium, you might manage in 30-60 range fps wise.

1920x1080 @144 FPS is 298,598,400 pixels per second. (PPS)
2560x1440 @60 FPS is 221,184,000 PPS.
That means that 1440p-60FPS is about 25% less demanding than 1080p-144Hz. 2560x1440 @144FPS would be 530,841,600 PPS, or about 180% more than 1080p.

Assuming I did my math right.

It may or may not work out of the box, it depends on whether the manufacturer has updated the BIOS for Ryzen 2. However, the second gen has been out for a little while now so most motherboards should be fine.
If it doesn't work, AMD has a support page for updating the BIOS.

Forum Topic "SSD in a small build"

Buildtimeboys 1 Build 1 point 2 months ago

Mainly would like to know if it's a good idea to put that kind of SSD in a build with so little airflow

SSD's don't get that hot, I'd worry about the CPU long before a SSD/HDD. That being said, the MX330 comes with one fan, and more can be added to the front of the case if you're worried about heat.

I changed the SSD and PSU because when I get a chance in the future I'm going to do a big upgrade.

That SSD is overkill for the vast majority of general and gaming use, a standard SATA SSD will be much cheaper and almost as fast in the majority of cases. Even high end rigs rarely need more than 650W, only something like a i9 or Threadripper build would need a 850W PSU.

If you are going to spend that much on a computer you can get far better performance by upping the CPU and video, and without sacrificing much on the PSU or SSD side:

Get the 3-slot one.

The 2080's each need a full length PCIe slot, the top two full slots on that motherboard are the ones you want to use. That puts two spaces between the cards which means you need the 3-slot bridge.

The i5 4760K is still a good processor as long as you don't pair it with a really new GPU like a 1080. I would go with something like an R9 Fury X or a 980 Ti(used of course), so there is no generational bottleneck.

What? no idea where you got that from. The 4760K will perform the same regardless of the GPU its paired with. CPU defines the maximum framerate you can achieve in a game, GPU defines at what resolution and settings you reach it.

For gaming with an APU, RAM makes a pretty significant difference. Going with a 2x4 kit instead of a 1x8 stick should give you a noticeable increase in performance. (High frequency and good latency are important as well.)

Edit: Benchmarks- skip to 20 min for RAM comparisons.

The CPU cooler is pretty outdated, something like a scythe FUMA would be a better choice. (Especially if you plan on overclocking at all.)

I changed it to a 2700 and also got you a G3 PSU (newest model) for cheaper.

The G2 is actually a better choice, that or a Seasonic Focus plus. (The G3 has issues with it's protections.)

Budget?
Country?

obviously a network card to connect to the internet do they come with mother board as i see most builds do not have it

Pretty much all newer motherboards have Ethernet built in, some have wireless as well.

Usually that means it's out of stock at whatever store the price was from.

Keep on saving, you can do it!

Thanks, but my builds done. Just frustrated by a build for a friend on a tight budget.

Buildtimeboys submitter 1 Build 1 point 3 months ago

Yea, this was less of a legitimate issue and more just a bit of whinging on my part.
The main thing for me is getting together $1200 for a computer as a Canadian is about the same as getting together $1200 as someone in the US, but that $1200 US gets you way more computer.
