First Ever PC :) Ryzen 5 2600X

by Goku1040


The main purpose for my build is to edit videos on Adobe and stream on twitch. My original budget was $1K but I managed to buy all the parts for around $886. I'm not planning to overclock it anytime soon since I'm still new to this and I mostly play on console. All the parts I purchased were brand new, I got most of them for the cheap :).

The CPU I selected was the Ryzen 5 2600x, the main reason I got it is because I was able to purchased it at a bargain price $183. I was originally planning to buy the 2700x but I couldn't pass on the deal. It came included with a stock cooler which save me money.

For the motherboard I went with the Gigabyte X470 Aorus Ultra Gaming. It works perfectly fine and it was cheap.

As for Ram I purchased G.Skill RipJaws V Series 16GB ( 2 x 8GB) DDR$-3000. I was able to get it for $145, It works fine and have no issues.

The storage's I got were the PNY 240 SSD ($55) and WD 1TB HDD ($44), both were on sale at Bestbuy.

My GPU was the most expensive part and difficult to select in my build, In the end I was able to get the Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1060 3GB 3GB for $203 Brand New. It was Actually $190 but I had to pay $13 shipping.

The case I chose was the NZXT S340, It's the white version. It's great for cable management. Again I chose this color because It was the cheapest one.

Power Supply I purchased EVGA 500W 80+ B1, I know there are better PSU out there but this was my first build. In the end I'm happy.

I didn't pay for windows 10 as I got the free version with the water mark, don't really bother me much to go spend $100.

I also bought two additional fans for the case, I did this cause the tutorial i saw the guy had four fans in his build for better air flow.

Part Reviews


It's a great CPU, for $183 I'm happy with my purchase. It's capable of streaming and rendering videos fast. Saw many video reviews and it's a beast of a cpu.


For the price of $140 I can't complain, Since it was my first build I was confused but it works.


I purchased the ram for $145, It's enough ram for my tasking needs.


For $55 It was a steal, It boots windows and Adobe extremely fast.


It's more than enough storage for my needs, for $44 it's a great price.

Video Card

So far it's been great, I may need to do some more testing but for $203 ( $190+ $13 shipping) it's a great purchased since I don't really do PC gaming. I know there's a 6GB version but my offer got accepted so I took it..


It's a beautiful case, big enough for cable management, although for my next build I may go for the elite

Power Supply

It was on sale and it works, I have no complains. Since this was my first pc build I didn't feel like spending lots of money. Although I do regret not getting a full modular one but I can live with it. It's really quiet and anyone looking for a cheap psu this is it.

Case Fan

Bought these for better air flow and aesthetic purposes ($8 each on Amazon)

you could run the 24pin cable from the other side of the white thing for better looks but over all its a very stable and capable system

Hi nice build. Isn't the cooler that comes with the 2600x meant to be RGB??

2700X Wraith Prism with RGB LED 2700 Wraith Spire with RGB LED 2600X Wraith Spire 2600 Wraith Stealth

Goku1040 submitter 1 Build 1 point 8 months ago

I think it's only for the 2700x, I may get rgb lights later on but for now I'm happy.

Nice picks -- good job squeezing that budget into something solid!

Goku1040 submitter 1 Build 3 points 8 months ago

Thanks, I was hustling for cheap prices

Awesome work !! I am following basically the same build and I was looking into the NZXT S340 case too any problems you ran into? My friend recommend this case and I am new to PC Building so I don't want to mess anything up also does it come with those extra fans or do I have to order it separately? Also quickly another question are you using this PC for editing/rendering?

Thank you! Awesome work by the way

Goku1040 submitter 1 Build 1 point 7 months ago

The case is awesome, no problems at all. It only comes with 2 fans, you will need to buy 2 extra ones if desired. Yes, my main purpose for this PC is to edit/render/streaming videos on YouTube and Twitch. This was my first build too

Where did you get the parts to get them so cheap?

Goku1040 submitter 1 Build 1 point 7 months ago

eBay and Amazon, I kept looking for deals on both platforms. I also gave them offers and they took it.

Beth18 1 point 7 months ago

Ok, thanks. Does this stream nice?

Goku1040 submitter 1 Build 1 point 7 months ago

Yeah, I have no issues at all. I can multitask and still have good streaming connection.

This is almost exactly how my future build was gonna look like except I was aiming for a RX 580 instead, freesync being more feasible than gsync at the moment, but at least I have an idea how it's going to look
