PCPartPicker Part List
Edit: sry it goes a bit over, if you can't afford it i can recommend a different monitor
I got a sligthly more expensive Mobo so he has a decent one so he can upgrade to the next generation of Ryzen without problems. If he's willing to wait I recommended to do so and swap the X470 Mobo with a X570 one and go straight for the 3º Gen of Ryzen. Did the best I could. Cheers.
No problem, have fun building, and most importantly, using the beast you'll have. Cheers.
I go a bit over, if you can't afford the extra 25$, I recommend not getting windows right away and when you get the extra money then get it and activate it with the key it's given you. Here's the list.
I'd make this changes.
Here's another list if he can't make use of those promos. I didn't really notice that, so thank you for mentioning.
What do you think of these changes?
This is what I'd personally do.
I'm sorry, has I said to "yeetloaf", i did not read all the way through and thought it was a HDD. And since you're not overclocking, the 2600X is indeed the better option. Cheers!
My bad, I saw Westernal Digital and thought it was a HDD.
Edit: Didn't read all the way through!
Good. Is just missing an SSD, and maybe I'd swap the 2600X for the 2600 non-X and get an aftermarket cooler so you're able to get an easy overclock.
This is the best I could do. I don't know anything about printers, so I can't help on that deparment. Hope this is useful.
I went all out. You still have the budget to go for 64GB of RAM if you really want to.
I tried to improve "ImperiousBattlestar" list, not easy, but I think it's better, IMO.
So I went with the non-X version of the 2600X, which is a better value in my opinion.
A very cheap keyboard, which is the same thing I did when I built my setup, with the thought of upgrading it in the future to something like the other user's list.
And the biggest compromise, was the SSD, which I went with one with half the size.
Doing all this I was able to fit in a slightly better PSU, a much better monitor for gaming (with 144hz intead of the 75hz on the other list) and most importantly, I was able to fit in a much better GPU, the GTX 1660ti.
Tell me what you think!
You have a budget in mind? That would be useful for us to help!
From what I looked at I think you're right!
In here, https://www.msi.com/Motherboard/B450M-PRO-VDH/Specification , if you go to "Details" and then to "Onboard Graphics" it looks like 60hz is the max refresh rate supported.
This changes everything, I guess I'll get a graphics card first and keep my crappy monitor.
There's another question I'd like to ask, so I've been looking into the monitor specs, and I can't find nowhere the version of the HDMI input, since 1.4/2.0 is needed for 120hz plus. And it comes with a DisplayPort cable, the thing is I don't have a DisplayPort output on my PC (yet), since I'm using an APU based system and the motherboard only has DVI-D Dual-Link, VGA and HDMI, I'd need the 1.4/2.0 version to connect it via HDMI, otherwise I'd have to go DVI, and I actually have no idea if that would be bad?
What about the 1660ti?
I appreciate that. I guess it is 1080p, since it looks like the image on your first link, not the second. I'll be getting a better monitor in the future so I guess it doesn't really matter. I was asking because I thought 1080p at this size would look better, I guess I'm wrong.
I saw the resolution on this website: https://www.avcesar.com/specifications/hkc-eh22f4
It's in french but I can see the resolution:
Résolution horizontale (pixels) : 1366
Résolution verticale (pixels) : 768"
It also says this, which I'm pretty sure is the refresh rate:
"Taux de rafraîchissement : 50 Hz"
The monitor says it's working at 60hz tho.
It's from the Brand HKC, the model number is EH22F4.
I currently have it at 1.2, should I leave it, or should I try lowering it even more?
So get it to 1.25, and see how high i can get the GPU clock?
Should I get it to 1.25 and see how much i can push the GPU clock?
(They overclocked with the Ryzen Master program, but I can't overclock it there for some reason, so I'm doing it in BIOS. You should know them, Hardware Unboxed, in this video, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TpECFc4nlmI&t=360s , at about 5 minutes in to the video)
They said in the guide that the SOC shouldn't go above 1.25, but they had the GFX at 1.3.
Then what should i do?
I would pesonally go for something like this.

I don't know what's wrong but when I tweak some settings on Ryzen Master (overclocking tool), it asks me to reboot, everywhere else I see people overclocking it doesn't ask for it. I tried to overclock again, but the same thing keeps happening (doesn't boot). I'll try to learn using the BIOS to overclock and do that then.
OMFG, it worked, yesyesyes, thank you so much. I used the back side of a spoon, I'm young and living in a new house so the only screwdriver I have, is the one I used to build the PC.
I'll post my build in here in the next couple days. Really really thankful, you're the best!
I'm tired, gonna try sleep and calm down and try fixing it tomorrow. It's currently 2:30 am where I live. Thank you.
There's the manual.
I read the "Resetting BIOS" where it says that I need to "Short the Clear CMOS jumper on the motherboard", after that I went to "JBAT1: Clear CMOS (Reset BIOS) Jumper", and there it says I need a jumper cap (what I'm pretty certain I don't have, searched everywhere; are this easy to get, or is there an alternative?).
I use the integrated graphics of the "APU". About the boost clock, I think only one of the cores goes up to 3,7, the others go to 3,5 max (I think). How do I reset BIOS?
Also consider I currently have a cheap laptop with a 5400rpm HDD, so most likely the increase in performance will be noticeable, whichever my choice is.
From those 3 which one would you choose?
It is, forgot to write that in, already edited it.
Would I notice that much of a difference in speed?
Ok, thank you.
I already have an SSD on that list, I think I won't need more than 250GB to begin with, that's why there's no HDD on the list (will add one in the future).
Any upgrades on this parts, PSU/Case/Mobo/RAM?
So go cheap on the keyboard, thank you. Now, where would you invest the rest of the money?
I still don't know for sure but most likely I'll go for a Ryzen APU system, and then in the future I'm considering swapping the APU for a higher end Ryzen 7 CPU and a mid range GPU (probably an RX 580).
Edit: Do you think 450W would be enough for what I need?
It's Portuguese xD
Can't you translate the website to english?
Can you go through the PSUs on that website and tell me the cheapest one you'd consider?
Here's the link for the PSU list ( https://www.pcdiga.com/fontes-de-alimentacao ), priced lowest to highest.
Since it's so new I don't think there are any review on it yet.
I'm sorry if I'm bothering you, but I'd like to ask another question. Do you think it would be worth paying 80€ for the Seasonic Focus Plus Gold 550W?
The thing is, here in Portugal I can't find decent PSUs under 40€, and I'm trying to build a PC with a budget of 400€ (more or less), and I don't want to pick up "a garbage PSU".
