First Build - Budget Gaming PC

Abisme

62 months ago

As the title says I want to build a budget gaming pc, I mainly play World of Warcraft and League of Legends (cause my current laptop doesn't let me go further). My budget is around 550~600€. As I'm buying it in a local store, so this prices are merely ilustrative and the case is not listed in pcpartpicker because it is a NOX Pax for 27€. What I have so far is this: PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant

In euros it is around 604€ (NOX case included). I would like to get some opinions on the build, as I am more apreensive with the CPU being too weak for the GPU. Should I be worried?

Thank's for reading.
