I think this is a good list! It's okay to have a few components that are overkill because with the M.2 SSD, P400S case and PSU, you'll have plenty of room to upgrade if you decide to. Not to mention, the majority of upgrades are easy. If you get another SSD or hard drive, just toss it in and connect it to the motherboard. If you get more RAM, just toss it right in. I started small with my first build and then over time, started to upgrade when I could afford to do so.

If you can swing the extra 70 or so dollars, go with the Ryzen 5 2400G.

So, I'm not too familiar with the bios update -- you will need someone else to get that figured out but once that's figured out, this might be a good build to consider. I have experience with Asrock. I actually use this same mobo in my build, just the ATX version rather than the MATX. It's great for the price, I haven't had any issues with it.

To do what you're wanting to do, this is will be great but for gaming, I don't know.. Don't expect much from it. In this build, I even got you the Ryzen 5 2400G rather than the 2200G. That might be something to consider if you plan on gaming AT ALL. I've seen these 2400Gs get to 60FPS on lower/medium settings. It's very impressive.

This is probably overkill in every way but this is an incredible build. Will crush any and all. There's some extras that I tossed in like the RGB fans, 1440P 144hz monitor and an AIO. You could build a system for 1500 that will do just fine with 1080p gaming but if you the best of the best and utilize that entire budget, here you go. Includes OS, keyboard, mouse and a 1440p 144hz monitor. All of it is pretty much top of the line.

I built this. 1080ti will be able to handle 4K gaming especially when matched with the 6-core 8700K. I did add an AIO simply because coffeelake CPUs run pretty hot and considering how much power your running as a whole, I would recommend it but it probably isn't 100% necessary. 16GB of RAM should suffice and I added a case and storage options but ultimately, that's your decision. For 4K gaming, the GTX1080ti is a must. So is a good CPU.

This would be good build to consider. Chose a 6-core CPU since you'll be streaming and recording. The 1060 will easily handle most games on high settings 60+ FPS. I have 8GB of ram but in the future, you may want to consider 16GB. In which case, you can just slap in at any point. I couldn't fit an SSD into the budget with the Ryzen 5 and 1060 but I'm sure the HDD will be bearable until you can get an SSD.

Really wanted to go with the MSI 1060 for the red accents but no sense in adding $40-50 just for the red accents. Phantek RGB strips are great, they're magnetic. Just slap them wherever you want.

This is my beast! Fairly reasonable on the computer side of things but I wanted the m.2 NVME for the OS and most of my programs. 1TB of SSD in RAID 0 and the IronWolf for mass storage. 4K monitor in the center for media consumption and editing and two 1440P 144HZ monitors on the side for gaming. Also added a sound card and external speakers for convenience.

Here's another list to consider. I noticed ugandan_knuckles' build did not have RAM so with as much power as this build is packing, I went just slightly over the budget. I downgraded CPU to get more GPU. While I'm sure the 1300X will do incredibly well for gaming, it might perform less than the Ryzen 5 for streaming. But, if you upgrade back to the Ryzen 5 and add RAM and change the GPU back to the 1050ti, you'll be way over budget.

  • Dual channel theoretically doubles the RAM access bandwidth on your computer. It's always recommended to go dual channel rather than single channel. Single channel is, at this point, old technology. There's no point to go single channel when nearly every motherboard supports dual channel/quad channel. I can't really go more in depth about that. A quick Google search will explain further.

  • Looks like that model of BenQ doesn't actually support DP at all. Looks like it has HDMI and DVI. I would just recommend HDMI that way it's simple and easy but I think you'll be limited to 60FPS on the monitor. Then again, that monitor is only 60hz so you'll be good to go! Like I mentioned, DP is typically only used on either higher resolution monitors or high refresh monitors. I use a BenQ ZL2720Z.

Looks good! A couple of things,

Yes, you can have two monitors. You'll just run two cables from the GPU to the monitor itself. Whether that's DisplayPort, HDMI, VGA and so on. It all depends on what monitor and how you're using it. Typically, DisplayPort is used for either high resolution or high refresh rate. I use a single DP cable for my 144hz monitor because it requires DP to enable 144hz. Sometimes for like 1440p 144hz monitors, you'll even need two DPs going to one monitor. I would just look at your monitors and make sure the GPU you selected is compatible with what you're trying to do. Also, I hope that's just three 1080p monitors. If you're trying to run three 4K monitors, you're going to need way more juice.

ALWAYS go dual channel RAM. Your parts list has a 1x8GB kit of RAM. You'll notice that Crofter below, selected 2x4GB on both of those builds. Make sure you go dual channel regardless of the parts list.

Other than that, everything looks great. You'll love the S340 case. If you can, I highly suggest going with a 1060 6GB but I know that's tacking on quite a bit of money. If you definitely want something that can crush games and also connect to three monitors, I would explore that option but I'm sure someone else here knows the GPU of your choice a little better than I do.

Looks incredible! If you have the money, do it. The only thing I would look at is the power supply. When you add two 1080tis, you're right at 800W which is almost maxing out that PSU. If you really plan to go SLI, I recommend the power supply below.

I would say that everything looks great. No, you don't need a CPU cooler with the Ryzen 5 1600 -- it comes with one and a pretty good one at that. The 6-core processor will definitely help when you do stream and it will have great multi-core performance. I did change a couple of things though.

  • I did change the case. While the P300 is a good case, for the money you can get better. I highly recomend the S340 over the P300. It's just a few more dollars but you'll be so much happier with it. It's quiet, it stays cool and has fantastic cable management.

  • Swapped the TXM PSU for the CX PSU. It's a few dollars cheaper (to make up for the case) and has far more reviews. Not that the TXM is unsafe, but when it comes to PSU, you may as well go with one that is highly rated.

You may want some other opinions on this, I'm not sure if a 6 or 8 core processor would be necessary for the production software that you use but I can tell you that as far as gaming goes, this will be excellent at that $1000 price point. I pretty much just copied my build but it performs incredibly well. You can check it out on my profile. I use photoshop and lightroom as well as heavy gaming and it does it all with ease but like I said, I'm not sure on the production software. The case is ultimately up to you and you don't really need all the fans. It helps but they aren't required, my system stayed relatively cool before I added those. Also, there's no SSD which might be something that you want? Again, that's your call but personally, i'm just fine with using an HDD until I can toss in a SSD.

Also, don't be overwhelmed! I was the same way with my first build but I can tell you it's actually really easy! Just take your time and don't rush the build process. If PCPP says all your parts are compatible, then they are compatible. Just breathe!

Edited only one thing, everything else looks good for a budget build. I changed the RAM because you never really want single channel as you had a 1x8GB kit. So instead, I changed it to a 2x4GB kit. Also, I know it's a budget build but you only have 240GB. Keep in mind that after you install the OS, you'll be very limited. As far as games go, you'll probably only be able to fit 1 or 2 at a time after everything else is installed. I know SSD speeds are great but for the price of that SSD, I highly recommend just dealing with a regular 1TB HDD for the same price because you'll be able to store a lot of programs/games and then later down the road, you can just toss in a SSD and transfer the OS over.

All the Battlefields run flawlessly! I'm assuming that's just because of how well optimized they are. My mind was blown to see such a high frame rate on high and ultra settings. Thank you! The S340 is incredible. It's even worth it at the $60 price point that I picked it up at. 25 bucks is a steal!

While this may be WAY overkill, you put a maximum budget of $3000. So, if you want some serious power and some serious bling, here you go. Includes absolutely everything you could ever need. I centered everything around a white and RGB build. Like I said, extremely overkill for the average person but if you want something that will destroy everything you throw at it and also be powerful enough to last through the years, this is it.

This is what I can come up with. 6-core Ryzen 5 1600x will be good for streaming and rendering. GTX1060 will crush most games in high to ultra at or above 60FPS and I even added a smaller SSD for the OS, programs and maybe the most important game or two. HDD for mass storage.

Eh not really 'unsafe' but I mean, if you're spending 1300 on a computer, it's wise to have a good power supply because after all, the PSU is what powers everything. That's just how I see it but ultimately, it's your decision of course.

I also use an NZXT S340 and I use four Noctua 140mm fans and one 120mm. Two 140mm in the front as an intake, two 140mm on the top as an exhaust and the 120mm is on the back as an exhaust as well. Mine stays very cool with an overclocked CPU and GPU. I just use the regular stock Ryzen cooler that came with my 1300x and it does very well.

Seems like a great build! Definitely did a good job selecting parts. I edited the list for a few reasons though.

  • You picked out a micro ATX motherboard and I didn't see a point in doing that so I switched it to the ATX version of the AB350 Pro4 ( I use the same exact one).

  • Also, if you want to overclock, you want the 1600X version of the CPU you picked out. The X is unlocked and will allow overclocking as the regular 1600 will not. Downside is the X does not come with a stock cooler so that's an additional cost but I added a really good one that is also white in color.

  • Also changed the PSU. Went from the Corsair TXM to the Corsair CXM purely because of ratings and reviews. CXM seems to be a better choice and it's actually cheaper.

That's all I changed. As far as your questions, I do always recommend a monitor with a higher refresh rate but it isn't required. 60HZ will be good but I'll tell you that 120 or 144 is incredible if you can push those frames. I have a 1060 matched with a 144hz monitor and it's an incredible experience when gaming. Fans are really all up to you. You can go with either 120mm or 140mm fans with the case that you picked out. I'll link a good cheap fan below after the parts list.

This is a little over budget but will probably do everything you'd like it to. I really tried to get a GPU like the 1060 but I'm sure the 1050ti will suffice -- just don't expect to play on ultra settings at or above 60fps. I'm sure with low-medium settings on games you'll get a decent frame rate. I estimate about 45 but it widely depends on what kind of game. I'm also not sure what programs he uses for music production, a 6-core cpu MIGHT help if programs like FL Studio are used but i'm sure you'll be fine without it. Again, if we were to go with a 6-core cpu and a 1060, it'll be way over the budget.

You really don't need the 8-core 1700x for that. You would be just fine with the 1600X for what you're using it for. I'd take that difference in cost and invest it elsewhere or just save some money overall.

Little over budget but your CPU and GPU of choice take half of the budget. This is also without a case, I'll let you decide on that. If you have no need for the Ryzen 5 1600X, I highly recommend getting the Ryzen 3 1300X because more than likely, if you have no need for those two extra cores, the 1300X will do great. If you downgrade to the 1300X you can probably get a 1060 6GB over the 1050ti. The 1300X also comes with a great stock cooler while the 1600X does not.

Well, it still looks to be a couple hundred less if you do it yourself. USD. You still get a 500GB SSD and faster RAM. If you were to take out the SSD and match the RAM, you'd easily be about $500 less than the prebuilt. I will always recommend building your own over pre-built.

If you do need all the peripherals. Had to downgrade the GPU to a 1050ti but it was 4GB so I would imagine you'd be fine with that as well. 1060 may be overkill anyways.

Looks like a few hundred dollars (USD) less if you build yourself. I'm not sure what's available to you but this is as close as I could get. Case is up to you but I went ahead and added the NZXT S340. If you want to price match, you could get a better CPU and an SSD. I'll build that one below as well.

For the same cost, you can get a much better CPU, motherboard, psu and faster RAM and a 500GB SSD. This would blow that Predator away.

That's a good plan. I know, tell me about it.. Unfortunately, my first computer was built with today's pricing so I'm not even sure how inflated they truly are haha. Hopefully in a few months, they will go back down and I can upgrade a few things.

Nope that's perfect. You shouldn't have to update the bios at all but even if you did, you can always do it by USB.

Yes, they go together. PCPP will tell you if there's something incompatible or there's an issue somewhere. Plus when you start browsing and building a list, it begins to only show you options that are guaranteed to work together.

Also, I would get a 2x4GB set of RAM rather than a 1x8. You'll want dual channel RAM.

It seems like a pretty good build for the budget. I don't think I could do better. The only thing I would change is going with a 2x4GB kit of ram rather than the 1x8. You'll want dual channel, especially with a Ryzen CPU. Besides that, looking good. Mini ATX will be just fine, it just depends on what size tower you want. Mini ATX will give you a bit of a smaller footprint compared to a full size ATX case.

Thanks! I love it. Well, I do want to get into overclocking eventually. Probably within the next few months but I really need to learn more about how to do it and how to do it safely.

This is as close as I could get. Case and peripherals are all up to you. It's about half the cost to build it yourself. Or I could price out something to match the price of the laptop and it will blow it out of the water.

I literally just copied my first build. It does great and I love it very much. The NZXT S340 is a breeze to build in. It stays quiet and cool and cable management is awesome. Color preference is all you. There's black, white, black and red, black and blue and white and purple available -- I just went with the purple because I like it.

The fans are also up to you, I do recommend them but they aren't absolutely necessary. It stays relatively cool with just the two 120mm fans that come with the case. The 1060 destroys games in 1080p. Most games play well over 80FPS in high/ultra and I play mostly shooter and survival games. The CPU is overclockable as well if you wanted to squeeze more power out of it later on. I'm not sure what editing and rendering you're doing but the Ryzen 3 1300x is great but perhaps 6 cores would be better for you as I don't render. I do use a little bit of photoshop and lightroom and this CPU handles it just fine.

The only changes I would make if I were you is to get a better motherboard. It's great and it works for me but I do recommend an Asus even if you have to spend an extra 20 or 30 dollars on one. Also, get an SSD if at all possible. A smaller 250-500GB would go great with everything else. Lastly, I have a WIFI adapter because I have to use WIFI unfortunately. Your experience may vary. Plus, there's two RGB strips in there but again, all up to you on that.

Check out my build for pictures if you'd like.

Definitely recommend one but you don't need it. I use the same 1TB Caviar Blue HDD and it's actually quite fast for what it is. An SSD will make a HUGE difference but that's always something you can toss in at a later point as well.
