The motherboard choice was only because it had built-in AC WiFi, and since it supported 3rd gen Ryzen anyway, was a plus. (At the time of purchase, the R5 2400G prices were hiked higher than the 3400G)

Ayy nice!

What about the front panel's LED Silverstone logo, is it not too bright, looks good?

Lol, here in the states, it's still $60, you're getting the case for roughly $41! Lucky :P

How good is the case to build in, for how much room it gives? Also, what do you think of it's quality, is it cheap or actually feel premium?

Photo resolution for ants

Build probably looks aesthetically great with those parts, but can't tell with the photos being tiny, mind retaking? :P

Better CPU (bout equal in gaming, but will be much better with core intensive stuff, since now it's 8 core 16 thread) Great wireless mouse

Left you a little bit of budget headroom if you need a WiFi dongle, or if you preferred a high refresh or bigger monitor, different keyboard or mouse, and potential shipping or online tax. Also plenty of fans for 2 front intake, optional 1 rear exhaust / 2 top exhaust too. This'll be great for both work and 1080p gaming. Leave a respond if you want WiFi / higher refresh monitor / different keyboard or mouse pls

I already know about the second hand options, just I would prefer stable part availability / pricing when going with new, instead of buying used, since I plan on turning this into a regular thing. You're not wrong though, second hand Ryzen 5 / RX 570 would've been great

This is my last resort option. I'd prefer the programs to be pre-installed so that the buyers don't just ignore the driver USB and end up wondering why the system is under performing and such.

I've been trying out WinReducer lately since it seems it can do what I'm wanting, the post-install OOBE / silent install programs you want. Still no clue how to use it so have been testing it all day :P

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Curious on why my pc is performing worse than my laptop."

It's because your laptop has a much better processor than your desktop, the laptop has DDR4 memory instead of DDR3, and most likely your laptop is running on an SSD instead of HDD.

Put it simply: Everything with your laptop aside from the graphics chip, is better.

Alright epic, check out the list by ImperiousBattlestar, not his first one but his second one in the responses, with the Metallic Gear Neo Air case and Team T-Force RAM, it's insanely solid for your money! If you need WiFi, getting a separate AC WiFi card (PCIe) would do you justice

GeIL EVO POTENZA RAM is honestly very garbage and low quality, for a tenner more you could swap with much better Team branded RAM and not have to worry about it / EX920's speeds are alright but could be better / Great case, but would need fans populating the front intake if he cares about the temperatures of his PC, good list tho but could be better here and there

No, you're absolutely in the right on this. Your sibling is most certainly being an (explitive). If they're so picky over the chores being done 100% how they want it, how come they never do it themselves, or show you or anything, instead of just whining and threatening a fee? Plus, no room and literally living in the kitchen, can't be good for your quality of life at all.

The i5 9600k and the R5 3600 are pretty much identical when it comes to gaming, but the motherboard for it is cheaper and still of very high quality, so I changed the i5 to a r5. Different RGB cooler for the same price, but much better cooling. 16gb of 3200Mhz RAM, you don't need 32gb of RAM unless if you're doing very memory intensive stuff like running servers or VMs. Much better SSD, has almost the same speeds as a Samsung 970 Evo, and much better than the Intel 660p. Better graphics card, since it fits the budget. Case that still has RGB fans and comes with a RGB hub, yet has muuuuch better airflow and better quality. Better power supply too, and removed the thermal paste since that comes with the cooler.

Overall much better performance for the same price. If you still need extra thermal paste, Kryonaut paste is $10.

Other than that, yeah you'll have everything you need to assemble and use this PC, assuming you have the mouse/keyboard, headphones/speakers, monitor, a flash drive of at least 8gb, and the cables associated. And a good, magnetic tip screwdriver :)

Hm, they may be pretty even when it comes to streaming / recording.

Play around with either option when you build the PC. x264 (which is CPU encoding) or Nvenc (which is GPU encoding), and see which has the least performance hit while still looking good on stream
