    10:00 thank you. Finally someone that builds PC's on youtube that knows the marketing BS and "Fast RAM/Gaming RAM" is BS. Even Linus Tech Tips falls for this meme. Anyone that doesn't believe that "Fast RAM" doesn't do anything, test it this way: Go into your mobo settings, downclock your RAM frequency to 1066MHZ and 700MHZ and test out some games and check their frame rates. RAM frequency has nothing to do with Frame rates.

    The reason higher frequency RAM got popular at one time was for locked CPU's in the overclocking community, Like the Xeon E5620- you could overclock locked CPU's with the right mobo (Like EVGA mobos) overclock the Front Side Bus on the MOBO and downclock the RAM frequency to get a stable OC. This was the only reason to want higher Frequency RAM.

    To really test RAM, Create a Ram disk, install a game onto it (preferably one that has long load times) and test how long it takes for the levels to load. Your RAM in kind of like old cartridge games like on the NES or Super Nintendo- Remember how fast they loaded compared to CD games on the original playstation? The only difference is your computer writes large chunks of program into your RAM instead of it being read only like the ROMs of cartridge games. You want as much RAM as possible because some games you can allocate as much RAM as you want for a game to use (like Minecraft).

    RAM on video cards, same thing- Frequency doesn't matter, unless you are overclocking your GPU. You want more Gigabytes, that is the most important number to look for when buying, because the newer games are allowing you to allocate as much GPU RAM as you want for better looking textures/graphics in the options menus.

    Two things I never skimp on: motherboard and PSU. Both are a pain in the ass to remove (depending on the chassis) and efficiency is better when PSUs aren't stretched to their top load. If you don't skimp on those 2 items (assuming you pick the right socket), you needn't upgrade for a long time. I'm on a 1st Gen Ryzen 1600X.... I'll drop in a Gen 3/4/5/6/7/8 whatever comes last for however long AM4 is around. :)

    Some good points there. Definitely get an SSD at least for the OS but with the low prices these days, you could get an additional one for you games drive. It makes a huge difference in load times. Also, nice to have OS and Games on separate drives, improves performance. Just make sure to check reviews on the SSD, things like Read/Write speeds are important but so to are the IOPS etc.

      even though you dont need as much vram as you think,4gb Vram is horrendous future proofing so i personally go for the 580 8gb , wont matter now but will in 3 years. Not to sound like a arse but it sounds like you dont have a huge budget so i would try to get the parts that will last the longest so the ryzen is smart for that purpose but you could drop down to ryzen 3 to incease the funds for the graphics cards which personally i would do but im a Animator and Web Designer so i dont know about your interests

And literally I’m not even kidding THE day after I ordered it, the would change what people should get if they bought the pack and they would get a GTX 1050Ti and an AMD Ryzen 3. And cuz I ordered before the changed I got the crappy stuff.

    Disagree about cheapest mobos for ryzen. You can get cheapest mobo and ryzen 1200, 1400, 1600, 2400g or even 2600. Those mobos are very suitable for those chips from AMD. Every single one cheap mobo can deal with 6 core ryzen. Cuz that boi needs only 65 watts which even the cheapest mobo can provide.
    The thing is yes you can OC ryzen but overclocking is miserable compared to Intel overclocking. You'll get 200 or 300 mhz boost if you're lucky (on those chips which were mentioned above). And the most funny thing is you can overclock the cheapest RAM on the cheapest b450 mobo and you'll get 3200 mhz easily. And you can overclock non X ryzen with the cheapest mobo to those 200 or 300 mhz easily as well. Why would you pay more for what you don't really need?

  • Matthew Hansen

    Budget build should always try to keep some potential in areas that last. Get a decent 650w psu, get a somewhat current MB, and go with AMD. Cheap out on parts fluctuate in price if they are on a high point. Now is a good time for pretty much everything except for cpu/GPU if ryzen 2/navi is a huge success.

      I wouldn't waste my time with a rx 560 or a 2200g, I would start with at least a 1500x or even a 1600 because of recent price drop. Budget GPU wise right now I would go for a 1060 6gb or an RX 580 8gb.

    Are you able to take out your cpu of your laptop because it is a i7 and i do not want to spend another 150€ on a cpu

    • BagsOfFun96
      BagsOfFun96 Day ago +1

      +SIXTW0ZER0 , Don't use just one ram stick. If you do, you'll be running the ram in single channel mode which will lower your gaming perdormance. Get either 2 4 gig sticks for dual channel mode or 4 2 gig sticks for quad channel mode. Example, single channel will be 80fps in pubg. Dual or quad channel will be 100fps. it's a whole 15-20 extra frames. As for the saving money part, don't buy everything at once. Wait for deals on newegg or buy used on ebay.

      BagsOfFun96 thx again man.
      But one last question ;) i want to go with the 1660 for 255€ but where do i need to save money because my budged is around 500-600 and where do i need to save money because i want a good looking case like the h500 white for 70€ and i want the rgb because i want the white lighting in my built so i was also looking for the ll120 coolers that are around 60€ and a motherboard for around 70 i saw a ssd 124g for 30 and then a 1tb hard drive also for 30€ and a 8g ram stick for 40 and a power suply for 60 so that is around 600 but where can i save money and improve on other stuff like the ram???
      And i dont know if all this will fit in a mid tower because the 1660 is a triple fan gpu

    • BagsOfFun96
      BagsOfFun96 2 days ago +1

      +SIXTW0ZER0 , For the motherboard I'd go with any reputable brand like Asus, Gigabyte, EVGA, or MSI. So first, figure out which socket type you need. Go to google, put in ur i7 and look for specifications. The socket type will be something like LGA 1155 or LGA 1151. So when you find out your socket type, go to google again and put in your LGA 11XX motherboards. Then shop for a motherboard. As for the other parts, I'll list some common budget options that still give decent performance. GPU- RX 580, RX590 or GTX 1060. Power supply- Any reputable brand ranging 500w-700w. Ram- (depends on the motherboards specs) If ddr3, you can find some good deals on ebay. If it's ddr4 look on amazon or something.

    • SIXTW0ZER0 ,

      BagsOfFun96 Thx bro
      But what kind of motherboard would you suggest and what gpu because i want to switch from a laptop to a pc and i dont know if all gpu’s complement the i7 because some guys say that if you buy a i7 you cant buy a cheap gpu. What price range should i pick then for the entire built because i dont want to spend over 500€ excluding the cpu and i dont know if i should pick a expensive gpu and then buy the other parts cheaper so it can fit in my budget

    • BagsOfFun96
      BagsOfFun96 3 days ago +1

      You absolutely can. The only thing I would do first is pick out a motherboard that has the correct socket type and do some research to make sure that cpu is compatible with that motherboard. By that I mean, look at the chipset of the board and make sure that chipset has support for the cpu because even if it's the same cpu socket, that doesn't mean it will post. I'd also recommend that you take apart the laptop correctly instead of completely destroying it in case you ever wanna throw a different processor in it.

    I built a mid range PC 2 years ago and it’s been great!
    6600k @ 4.5Ghz
    RX 480 8GB
    16GB RAM oc’d to 3333 MHz
    3 SSDs
    I can run any game on high (1080P) and be pushing 75 fps easy. Won’t be upgrading my system for hopefully another 3-4 years.
    My only regrets: buying a 1000w PSU and a motherboard that supports Crossfire (thinking I would do crossfire RX 480s one day)
    I should have just bought a smaller PSU and a single GPU board and gotten a GTX 1070 with the extra money instead. I’m still really happy with my RX 480 though! My in laws have GTX 1080Tis and I can keep up with them in games just fine.. they spent more on graphics than my entire setup costed me

      ...but mounted a bequiet! Dark Rock 4 Pro Cooler on my Cpu and realized now that it is completely overkill, because i can‘t get my Cpu stable to 4,1Ghz. The Cpu is not going over 60°C even under full load at ~20°C room temp.

    You should cover audio (DAW) and video production (NLE, VFX, and color grading) systems and peripherals-the technology, the set up, and building.
    Reach out to manufacturers (Blackmagic, Elgato, Flanders Scientific, Dell for their UP series) and industry bloggers and professional system builders (Puget Systems, Wolfcrow, who has an amazing and criminally small film and tech channel, or a big timer like Rick Beato).
    There’s either lack of exposure for people who cover this niche interest that nevertheless undergirds one of the biggest multimedia platforms out there (youtube, soundcloud), or hardly any coverage outside of forums filled with opinionated dudes.
    You can help out small channels that cover something related to yours, without stepping on each other toes, elevate the quality of amateur and low budget producers, and learn more for yourself about cool A/V gear, like Blackmagic Smartscopes or whatever

    I went the budget route 2 years ago and I feel content with my decisions
    Ryzen 5 1600 3.2ghz OC 3,8ghz
    Gigabyte AB350M Gaming 3 failed under warranty replaced with MSI B450M Mortar
    Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 8gb 2400mhz CL14 OC 2666Mhz CL14
    Thermaltake Smart RGB 80plus 600W PSU
    GTX 1060 6gb dual fan OC +200mhz core, +500mhz memory
    Kingston 240gb UV400 SSD
    Thermaltake Versa N25 tower with 4 case fans (one stock, one blue led from my previous rig and 2 new xellence blue led)
    = It was under 1000$ at the time and most games run on high to ultra high
    It's a nicely packed budget rig but soon I'll need to get more RAM, thankfully the LPXs arent expensive anymore so I'll probably get 8 more gigs very soon.

  • William Shreckengost

    Something else worth noting for folks trying to get the most out of their money: Look for last-gen stuff used and look for comparisons to current stuff. For instance, GTX 1080's are going for around $350-400 now, making it aroung $100 cheaper than a new, slightly faster 2070. It doesn't always make sense to grab a used part, but you ought to when it does. Also, storage is like butter. Never buy used butter.

    11:35 Going to add from my experience(which is not a lot but still), storage matters. I have an old-ish(2014) 5400rpm WD Green hard drive and it struggles to play demanding games such as GTA 5, Squad, etc, and it usually bottlenecks them, causing stuttering. After I got my SSD and migrated my OS to it, I have noticed that the HDD causes fewer bottlenecks in my system.
    It also doesn't help that my 8gb of ram usually gets maxed out in the said games. Due to the game having to write to page file, it is important to have a decent storage drive.
    tl;dr get a decent HDD that can write fast enough, if you don't have more than 8gb or RAM, having a decent storage drive helps a lot, at least in my case.

    My PC is technically "Budget", I got a Pentium G4620 and a good motherboard (this was before we discovered that any processors post-Kaby Lake won't work on it) with a 1050Ti, and I have an upgrade path all the way to a 7700K (that will likely be cheap by the time I upgrade). That's my argument for budget builds: Cheap upgradeability down the road

    I would say don't ever get a hard drive at this point. You can get a 1 TB M.2 SSD for just over a hundred bucks. There's just no longer any point in buying a hard drive or even a sata SSD at this point. M2 also has the advantage that you can get a smaller case to put everything in since you don't need a rack for hard drives.
    If you need multiple TB of memory for long term storage, consider just using an external hard drive instead.

    I would really, really like to buy a used Fractal Design ARC XL. If it's in almost new condition, I could part with $180, seriously; it's complicated :) Returns, refurbished, slightly damaged (scratched), will do too.

    i swear people have no clue how to cost effectively build a budget computer. get a dell optiplex 790 (with i7-2600, 16 gb ram, 1.5 tb hdd and win 10 pro) for 150 (CAD), ssd for 45, gtx 1060 6gb for 120, and new power supply for like 70. you can play pretty much anything. you could have your computer, peripherals and a few games for under 400 CAD which is only 300 USD.

    If I did go for the ax370 will the i5 just drop in and not have any problems. About to attempt my first build and scared it won’t be compatible or ill fuck it up somehow 😂

    If you on the budget with ryzen apus don't save on ram and don't buy single chanel memory. This will crush the performance of apu.
    Second, when it comes on longevity of motherboard, intel doesn't matter, buy whatever will run your chosen processor.
    AMD check vrm if it has headroom for more power in the future AND don't go budget motherboards, those tend to be dropped or be at the dead end when it comes for bios update, thus support for new processors. Flagship gaming series is must have now days.
    Don't buy 590, not worth the premium over 580.
    Ssd is a must in every system. Buy 64 gig for system only, thoseare dirtcheap.

    Really wish I had this advice before I bought a FX 8370 three years ago. I started with the cheapest motherboard possible, but a decent air cooler, 390X, and very nice RAM. The shortcomings of the processor have never ceased to be a pain in my ass, and I've spent a lot trying to make it work and I could have had a much nicer system for my money.

      +Waldherz FeuerClanRyzen 1xxx to Ryzen 2xxx was actually a jump in performance due to shrunken process and another year of fixes for teething issues.
      8th to 9th gen Intel... they just used a different thermal material, overclocked it by 100-300MHz and repackaged it. Implemented a few firmware fixes for Meltdown/Spectre exploits.
      Was kinda pointless for anyone who delidded their CPU. (I own an 8600K so looked into it at the time).
      Looking forward to Ryzen 3xxx series coming out, need Intel to pull their thumbs out.

      I fried the whole computer recently, didn't even bother to check detail. First the micron ssd (glad there's 2 month warranty left). After 3 month the psu itself... change the psu.
      After 1 month problem comes back , now I believe the old psu fucked up the mb or cpu, or maybe both.
      The watts was enough. But seriously unstable ( I recycled it from school, works for 3 years in school and 2.5 years with me ). It was a shitty psu when new anyway.

    • manaquri
      manaquri 10 days ago

      I've fried a psu once, 500W no name didn't like 200W on the cpu (phenom2 x6 @ 4.3Ghz on 6 cores) + 350W on the gpu (msi hd 7970 lightning @ 1250Mhz IIRC) with occt psu stress test (the plastic insulator melted on the transistors, shorted out and made a flash/bang.)
      never had a problem with any other psu.
      though spending 100 bucks on a silver/gold 700W psu should be good, because the atx psu standard doesn't change, and at wors, you can get an adapter for it, note that a smaller length non modular psu is preferable for compatibility as some smaller cases (node 304) don't support longer PSUs.
