Hey everyone. I am pretty new to PC building, and the forums, so hopefully I hope there are some people that can give me tips on what to add and improve for my PC build. I dont know much about how to build a PC, or the parts to use, so sorry if my build looks cringy.
I currently have a budget $1000-$1500 to spend, and I want to get the best streaming and gaming experience without using alot of money.
I plan on streaming games like Fortnite at 1080p, but at low settings, Apex, other AAA games with med-high graphics, just depending on the game. I also plan on using two monitors if possible.
EDIT | I made a new list with a few more parts. I think I will be switching to the Rysen 7, but that depends on after I use my leftover budget money. I need someone to find me a case cooler, and a cpu cooler, if I do need those. I think my GPU/CPU are pretty solid If I stream AAA games like Apex, Fortnite, GTA, PUBG at high to maybe EPIC settings at 1080p 60 FPS, but correct me if I am wrong.
If you could give me tips on what to add or what to do, that would be amazing!
CPU - Still thinking about Rysen 7, just so I dont have to change CPU's for the next 4-5 years, but that is another $100 so it depends.
Motherboard - I know they are out of stock on Amazon so I might just try finding it somewhere else. Has 4 solid USB 3.1 Gen 1 ports that I plan on using for my KB - M & and other stuff. 1 LAN port for my ethernet cable. I was hoping for 2 HDMI ports but I guess I might have to use my 1 HDMI port for the gaming monitor, and the other for looking at chat etc, or I might just get one monitor for now.
Memory - Seems like a pretty solid ram slot, for 16 GB, DDR4 3466. I saw that some people recommended it, so I just went with it.
SSD- WD is pretty reliable and fast for a good price. I'll be using the 500GB to store games and other stuff. And since my motherboard has Turbo M.2, I guess that'll be good (idk what m.2 is.)
HHD - WD again, fast and reliable. I might go try finding a 2TB just incase since I will be streaming and more than likely saving alot of data.
GPU - Instead of going for a 1070, or a 2060 RTX, I went with the 1060 because it has some pretty good FPS for most popular titles that are AAA at high-epic. It should be pretty good for streaming AAA titles at good FPS, but I might change it, just depends.
Case - I went with the nice Red and Black design. Pretty good price with good cable management.
PSU - Reviews say the PSU is usually quiet, and EVGA is a pretty trusted brand so eh.
im really lazy to put anything else, but please just give me some tips
