    So my parents didn't trust my ability to build a computer and ended up buying a 1.2k computer that was only worth almost 400$. But now that I have convinced them I know how to do it, I finally have the option to build my own, and by the end of the summer, I'm gonna build this pc:

    CPU: Ryzen 200$ (amazon version amazon)
    Graphics Card: asus-geforce-gtx-1050-ti 150$
    Ram: crucial 75$
    MOBO: asroc 83$
    PSU: amazon 60$
    Case: case 80$
    Cooling: AMD stock cooler is fine, has room for a bit of overclocking
    Storage: (already have ssd) Seagate-BarraCuda-Internal-Drive-2-5-In 45$
    thermal compound: amazon 8$

    Total: 7** USD

    Welp thats pretty much my whole goal, although I would really really really love some feedback about any ideas you had, if there were any parts you found for cheaper, or different parts that are better!

    As long as it isn't an intel cpu. AMD is where its at. Better performance, better price, and compatibility with ECC ram.

    Yes

    ????

    No shot should you spend that much on a mobo in this build's price range unless youre overclocking HARD

    Thats leaving next to 0 room for upgrades unless youre going to "upgrade" a 1050 to a 1060...

    Yikes

    True, what about this one: ASRock B450M PRO4 AM4 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard - Newegg.com

    hmm i guess i'll see about a better power supply

    this one? https://www.amazon.com/CORSAIR-Certified-Modular-Microsoft-Standby/dp/B079H6111J?th=1

    or this? (same wattage but cheaper :D)https://www.amazon.com/Seasonic-GX-650-Full-Modular-Application-SSR-650FX/dp/B077J9QTDR/ref=psdc_1161760_t2_B079H6111J

    oop this one is the cheapest, but it is also like you said, a corsair 650 CORSAIR CX Series CX650 650W ATX12V, Power Supply - Newegg.com
    i dont have a set budget but i'm payin and I don't think i can really do over 1k
    the 1.2k was my last one that my parents bought because they just saw "oo lifetime warranty" even though the pc was crap

    also the thing about waiting in the summer is that all the graphics card prices just keep rising ;(

    1050ti?

    My guy are you in 2013 or what? its 2021 stick with a Radeon 570 or 580 (get it used you can get a good deal if you search properly)
    Capture.PNG

    Or check back frequently on pc partpicker and you may get a good deal on a 1650, 1650 super, 570, or a 580 brand new. A few hours ago I saw a GTX 1650 for 169


    Better yet don't buy anything right now. Graphic cards, cpus, and RAMs (there may be more that will skyrocket) are sky high right now. If you can get a used custom pc around that price or better with better specs within your area.

    And do not use iBuyPower, cyberpowerpc, or any online custom pc shop they overcharge their custom pcs just like many computer manufacturers overcharge prebuilt pcs

    I also believe you should honestly hold out into investing into a pc atm, it'll be worth the wait for gpu prices to return to normal so you're not overpaying for a mid tier card. Your best option currently is to slowly be buying parts you see cheap and maybe consider a 2nd hand option, so EBay will be your best friend. (Ebay is very buyer biased so if the product received doesn't work you can remedy it easily).
    As well as that, might be good to mention to your parents that each part has it's individual warranty so they'll give you the 1.2k leniency. I would honestly stay at a 1k build and just invest like 150$ into a 144hz monitor.

    If you've got the retail price on that at 160$ I'd take it but it does perform worse than the rx 590 and matches the rx 580 in performance.

    you don't need an antistatic wrist strap, and I would highly recommend arctic mx-4 thermal compound; it is amazing. Other than that I would highly recommend 3600mhz ram found here: Crucial 16GB Ballistix DDR4 3600 MHz UDIMM Gaming BL2K8G36C16U4B
    It will be much better than the ram you have currently selected.
    Also, what monitor are you looking at/do you have?

    Also, A better PSU would be this: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00S8NOAJ8?tag=pcpapi-20&linkCode=ogi&th=1&psc=1
    You don't need 650W, and this PSU is cheaper and semi-modular.

    P.P.S: Wait for a GPU, I know its against your instincts but trust me, prices will fall.

    It scores a 9833 while the 580 gets a 8778, and also the rx 580 is twice as much (literally a minimum of 300)

    Aight i'll go look for that thermal compound
    Heck yeah, 5 bucks for 600mhz more?
    Ooo definitely going to use that PSU.
    Yeah, imma wait out the GPU a few months.

    Umm my monitor is pretty entry-level but I'm ok with that, its 60hz refresh rate, its the HP 22yh

    Yeah you're correct, that's my bad my source was comparing the regular 1650.

    1660 Super may be like $40 more but hell is it worth it (some people have had FPS double in some games)

    I recommend sticking to the 20 or even 30 series GPUs for now though, you'll have to wait a few months for those prices to drop (as pretty much everyone has said)

    if your basing all your performance knowledge of a GPU on its performance mark, prepare to be disappointed

    currently your parts are good, but I'd recommend bumping up your GPU to something more modern and maybe buy a larger HDD, as in my case I got like 7 games and my 1tb hdd was full after that so
