What do you think Of this build? I plan to stream, and run a dual monitor set up down the road. But an idea of the games I want to play is: Rainbow six siege, Black ops 3, Titanfall 2, Battlefield 1,Star wars Battlefront, Overwatch, and H1Z1, and CS Go, GTA V. as well as many more games, and some more games down the road when they come out. Will this build run these games smoothly? Thanks for all the help It is greatly appreciated!

What do you think?

I decided to go with a pre built because I'm not confident in my skills to build a pc. I didn't want to screw up and break something lol

That build comes with a FX-6300 or 8320 which honestly you would be doing a mistake. Go with skylake i5 at this point which will give you much better performance.

Nahh. Just look at videos on youtube. Its fairly easy and you don't have to break anything. Look for videos from carey. They are long (lol), but he is probably the best as he is very detailed which is what you need for first time building.

Thanks! I was told by a friend not to long ago that at minimum you need 600W for a pc. is this true? Because this build has 450W

An 600W power supply is not a minimum requirement for any PC. Depending on the components you will be using, as well as how much overclocking you plan on doing will all add to how high of a wattage you will need for your PC. After a quick glance at the Best Buy product page, it doesn't seem too bad. If you are just looking to walk down to your local store and pick one up off the shelf, you can't go wrong. But as pegotico said, you really should go with an i5 based build if you are comfortable doing it yourself.

Obviously he doesn't have an idea of what he is talking... It depends on your components. You can use a calculator to check...
