Trying to keep it under $750. Wanting to do some development and gaming on a tight budget. I will be buying legit windows 10 so don't imply anything on that. I would love to squeeze in and SSD if possible. Any advice guys?

If you want, you could wait until the end of the year for the Ram cost to lower. There have been higher demands for faster and more ram, so the ram companies are also on a shortage, which accounts for their higher cost.

I was able to get a 16 gb ram of a higher speed for about the same price as yours 6 months ago.

For the SSD, I think simply spending an extra 70 bucks would be more worth it, than sacrificing some other pieces. Your build is very solid and "Hot Red".

Prices of ram are abusive.... I bought 16gb of ddr4 last year for 59 bucks and now I had to buy one sodimm (1X8gb) for 55 bucks. Its insane!!

Yea! , Hopefully the Ram companies can increase production with their now upgraded equipment by the end of this year.

But, by then, there would probably be the GTX 2000 series of something ;)

Yeah I noticed ram is very expensive in DDR4 my DDR3 is like half the cost... oh well he wants it now. I'm actually building this for a couple my wife and I know.

Are you planning on 1080p gaming? If so go for the rx 480 4gb, the 8gb of vram isnt necessary ☺

I would even consider the 470. It will game really well and can be found around 100 right now.

If he can fit the rx 480, get the 480, why recommend a slower card?

A 480 is quite expensive for such a tight budget, maybe a 470? or maybe like a 1050ti?

I think thats a good suggestion.

at $750 you can fit a 480 quite easily

True, but maybe to invest that other money to possibly a better CPU and motherboard. But for gaming then yeah a good rx 480 4gb should be good too.

I agree, the 4gb model is perfect

For the RAM, you could just get the RGB RAM from Corsair and it's pretty cheap, ~$100.

No because the high end R5's have 12 threads and the R7's have 16 threads. If you're rendering or doing anything workstation related then 16 threads is considerably better than 12.

It would be way better than either of those but in terms of multi core performance, the R7's are much better than the R5's

I like the case, didn't realize tempered glass was the cheap anymore?
