Hey guys, i,m new to this site which im loving and also new to building PC's this will be my first one! i'm nervous and actually quite excited to do so! So the last couple of days ive been really putting in some time trying to get a build that i like its been overthinking so much and changing things 100s of times!

A redditor has helped me a little bit with providing a build that meets my needs but other people say different things so i though i'd post both builds to see what you guys think.

I'll be using this system for gaming and general use, browsing, music, streaming video etc. Games like Sea of Thieves, forza and any AAA games i like in the future.

First ill post what the redditor suggested *My budget here was around £600 give or take so a little bit more is not a problem. i upgraded the PSU he recommended because the other seemed a bit too cheap here is the build - https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/list/q9NsFt

The next build was from the one i saw on the main page the featured AMD build for just over £700 i made some changes in this build to fit my budget more by changing to cheaper/less storage and also less ram for now as i can easily upgrade that down the line. here is that build - https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/list/nMCCnH

What changes if any would you guys make and which system would you go for between these? OH! and also i'll be needing a wireless network adapter is there any you can recommend thats relatively cheap and decent?

Thanks a lot guys! looking forward to learning more :>

In my opinion the second one would be more suitable for you, since the gpu model is the 8gb one. Just remember that the mobos are the micro atx design, which is not a problem, but you'll have to do some tricks in order to connect all the fans to the mobo, unless the case has some built in controls, like mine (nox coolbay zx) As I told you via reddit, I have looked at some cases with optical drive unit/module with a similar price as the one you've shown there. These are the ones: https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/product/YjXnTW/cooler-master-masterbox-mb600l-atx-mid-tower-case-mcb-b600l-ka5n-s00 https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/product/jrVBD3/phanteks-case-phes515pbk https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/product/JwVBD3/corsair-case-cc9011075ww As an extra, my pc case, the nox coolbay zx can also fullfil your needs, it may not be the best looking one, but it's ok for a mid tier pc, I'll send you some pics via reddit Check out if they are compatible with your system, I think they are fine. All of them are ATX mid towers. The phanteks one seems to be the best, based on the rating. Anyway, the coolermaster is the best looking of them all, so that's up to you. Anyway, I recommend you to have a look by yourself. There are more options and more beautiful if you don't need the optical drive, so you decide

I would just switch back to the Auros motherboard - it has more fan headers which you'll find you need, and it's just a slightly nicer motherboard.

Otherwise, that'll work fine
