The Budget range is within $600 with monitor, so i had to cut off prices much. But the pc is only for watching streams and playing little board games, so it wouldn't be a matter. My concern is, because it is my first time to customize a comp, i don't want to experience in any compatibility problem with various parts.. Please check this! and tell me your opinion

It might be better to just get a 1tb hdd insead of a 120gb ssd also could probaly get better processor and moba for same price

sadly yes. it will be much cheaper in the states. And i realize parents do not install any in computer. In this case, using SSD for better speed + silence would be better.

  • The cpu is a little underpowered
  • PSU is a little overkill
