Description

This build is for gaming and streaming using 1 PC and for editing as well . I haven't got the GPU yet, meanwhile i have bought a gigabyte GTX 710 1gb for the system to run and display some video output. I have opted for 8gb single channel because i will upgrade the memory to 16gb and it is a bit cheaper than 4gb pair. It is closer to 1000 dollars but i got my CPU,motherboard and memory cheaper than the listed sellers so my build is closer to 900$. cheers .

Part Reviews

CPU

Those 6 cores will help stream and edit.Great performance for the price

Motherboard

Not the best but heaps of usb3.0 ports and gets the job done.

Just curious as I'm building a similar pc, how is the psu doing? I bought a 500w Bronze and curious if it's enough for r5 1600 with rx 580

psu is good for the price but the only issue is , it is not modular but that's okay for the price.For rx580 or gtx 1060 6gb ,350-380W would be enough so a 450 or 500 is more than enough,but i haven't got the gpu yet to justify my words .

Yeah, I'm just concerned because many people say we should get like a 650w psu which seems unreasonable to me. I bought a 500w Bronze for $17.99 during the EVGA anniversary sale but many people make me concerned to use a rx 580 with it

500w would be sufficient but if you want to do serious OC of cpu and gpu then may be ,just may be you need something higher than 500w ,but you already have one so just use it , and that "many people" didn't use or build **** so don't worry. cheers
