I'm relatively new to the world of building my own PC. Just realized what ghz are and what virtual cores and threads do. Now with that being said I'd like some help. I am just selling my gaming laptop now as I would like to be able to run battlefront 2 at max with no issues(1050ti, i7 7700k etc). I am planning on purchasing this guys setup. And running and upgrading things as I see fit. He has 3 set ups for me to choose from though.
This one would run me 550$. Ryzen 3 1300x, ASRock A320M mobo, 8gb ram, 600 Watt thermaltake PSU, GTX 960 2gb (R9 290X for more), Corsair Carbide 275R Case, 256 Gb Crucial SSD.
This one would run me 900$. Ryzen 5 2400G, gigabyte B450 Aorus M, 8gb gskill aegis, 750W thermaltake fully modular, 256gb hdd, 240 gb ssd, rx580 8gb ddr5, 2 rgb masterfans front, 3 argb fans in top and 1 argb fan in the back.
This one would run me 380$. Quad core i5 2500 3.7ghz, asus enthusiast motherboard, 8gb ddr3 ram, 1600 MHz, gtx 960 2gb(or i could swap to the 290x as in the first one), semi modular 550W power supply, 3 rgb fans in the front, 1 in the back.
So that's all three setups. I'm just not sure what to do here. Let's say I have anywhere around 8-1200$ to spend here. I'd rather spend as little as possible.
