Description

This is my first PC build, it is mainly for productivity, games, work and video that's why I chose the AMD approach and because I was doing a budget build. Next upgrades will be a 5700 XT to play at better resolution and quality

Just an FYI, the plastic on top of the CPU cooler pops up. It will still be attached underneath where it says "AMD". You can move that plastic ring up and hold it out of the way, then unscrew the 4 screws holding the fan to the cooler. Then you can rotate it so the AMD is "up" instead of on its side. Screw it back in and re-clip the ring in place. I just went through this last night and wanted to share :).

Excellent budget build. The 570 is perfectly serviceable at 1080P. My new Frankenstein is R7 2700 + GTX 960 (Soon to be 980). Looks gorgeous on my new 1440P monitor! Hope you enjoy yours!

You might need to sink a little bit more into getting another hard drive. You can get a pretty cheap but good 7200 for $30-40.

I have the same processor in my build and it's been very fast for me. I would recommend though that before you get the 5700 XT, to upgrade the power supply to something 80+ Bronze or better. It may work fine for you, but I did have an unrated power supply (below 80% efficiency) before and it gave me nothing but issues.

His PSU is more than enough for a 2600 + 5700xt

I suppose it is, after all it is EVGA branded and not from some random company that no one has ever heard of. Also the power supply I had before was a 450 W Antec unrated thing that was a full volt under 12 V and half a volt under 5. Also it's good to have 200 W of headroom when you put the part inside of your case, so what he has would be enough.

I was aiming for 800w but they didn’t have any and I get impatient and got this one its more than enough for the 5700XT and the system.

600 watt is more than enough. I've ran a AMD R290 on a 430watt psu from corsair

I built a used version of this system for $313 (would've been $403 if the ryzen 2600 was shipped correctly). I bought used but have a total of $343 n the build counting my 4 RGB fans. https://pcpartpicker.com/b/yKzYcf

It plays RDR2 at 1080P and the Division 2. I only have a 4gb variant but it's peformed great for less than $350

That’s really good we got similar parts i got this mobo cuz In the future I might upgrade to the 3000 series and didn’t want to have issues with compatibility and the gpu I got it cuz it was cheap for 8gb only down side its no back plate but I had a upgrade in mind

I'm looking for some help. I know a good chunk of things about computers but I do not know nearly as much as other people. Could anyone help me make a budget build? Thanks.

Depends on how big your budget is

My budget is about $1100 CAD for the pc excluding peripherals.

thats around $830 USD so I recommend the ryzen 2600 and 1660 super. along with a b450 motherboard. If the rest of your parts are cheaper you can possibly fit in an RTX 2060 or RX 5700

Ok, thank you. Also what’s better, the RX 5700 Sapphire Pulse or a 1660 super, 1660 ti or RTX 2060?

1660 super and 1660 ti are 1080p class cards. The Ti is slightly better than the super but not worth the extra $50. the RX 5700 has the best performance and is a 1440p class card. RTX 2060 performance is a bit worse but if you really care about ray tracing or need CUDA cores then go for that

I do have a question about your build. Will video run ok without purchasing a video card? Customer is not a gamer at all. Thanks Bob

Sorry to reply this late with this CPU you need a video card the other choice is to get a Ryzen 3 2200G or a Ryzen 3 3200G with the 3200G I think you need to update the motherboard bios either choice on those CPU they got Integrated Graphics Card
