My teacher messaged me about a gaming pc that he thought was good, it wasn't it was mostly overpriced, it was under $1000 it had a Ryzen 5 1600, 16gb of ram, and an RX 570 and a 1TB SSD <---- this I do not approve of. The budget was under $550 it worked out in the checkout on amazon just under $545.

The minimum system requirements for the game were a 4 core CPU or better, an AMD FX-6300, Intel Core i5-4430, Intel Core i5-2320, or AMD Ryzen 3 1200. I personally chose the r3 1200 because it has a really good upgrade path, duh.

The GPU it was recommending was a GTX 660 2 GB / GTX 1050 or ATI Radeon HD 7850 2GB / AMD RX 550 or better. I chose the 1650 super because it had similar performance as the RX 580 and a GTX 1060 6GB.

The Ram it only required only 8gb for the game so obviously I did 8gb's of ram.

I only put an SSD in this build because faster booting time and the game is only 40gb's and I know he won't play any other game.

For the case I chose the Fractal Design Focus G because it has good airflow, it comes with two fans, and I never built in this before and I know there isn't a PSU shroud covering the PSU, but I do like a challenge for cable managing.

The power supply its not semi nor modular, it's only 450W 80+ bronze because this machine shouldn't need a 600w power supply.

Love Fractal Design they make some pretty good cases.

Power Supply

I use an EVGA PSU in my personal computer and it seems to be working fine.
