Ended up going with this. I figured I might as well go with the InWin Chopin Case as it comes with a 150W PSU. I probably could’ve gone with the 2200g, but the cost would’ve gone up to ~$380. With taxes my part list came out to ~$320, so it was a good cheap build.
I was thinking about going with a 2200g but it was 20 more dollars than the G5400. 2200g is a better CPU, but the G5400 is more than enough for just web browsing and YouTube videos.
Here they compare the 2200g and G5400 — take a look, both are almost on par.
Thanks. Honestly don’t know, I think he bought 2 last year and they both stopped working.
That’s what I’m aiming for!! Haha
Man that’d be awesome. Thanks for the help though! Will be buying the parts later this week.
Yep, for sure. Sorry for late response.
I have an HP 25es, it’s what I already had at home so I didn’t really buy one. Sorry for the late response.
+1 for the build it's awesome
Although I do believe the GPU is a Asus 1060 6gb Dual.
I'm wondering if you were able to sync all the RGB lighting with that MSI motherboard. Like we're u able to sync the gpu's rgb's with your rgbs fans. Awesome build!!
Yes this is just for gaming. I really just choose the motherboard because it looks cool with the lighting plus it has a M.2 slot for the SSD. The RGB ram, I just choose it because it also will look cool with the motherboard lighting. I choose the 1060 over a 480/580 for the color scheme, and i heard it goes better paired up with a Intel processor.
Edit: I changed the build a little bit, and now It is way better, costing just $100 dollars more. I changed the motherboard (looks amazing, same cost, more features, allows higher MHz ram). Also changed the ram, costs almost the same as the one before but has higher MHz and also has RGB :). Last change was the processor as i might as well upgrade it for $40 more and allow over clocking.
I really don't know which one to pick, all I really want to have is the cheapest one, and yet still have good performance. If I may, I'll just get a Z270, and keep the 3000Mhz ram modules or I won't over lock and just keep as is. - https://pcpartpicker.com/user/Agentcows/saved/YqGZLk
One last question though, the motherboard says that the memory type is 2133/2400, so wouldn't there be no point for the 3000Mhz ram?
Thanks man!! I just don't know which Motherboard to choose with the Intel build, I just put in a random one.
I will be playing games like Rust, Overwatch, Battlegrounds, Battlefield 1, and even some school use.
The PC i want to build is almost like yours haha. By the way, if you have ethernet, there really is no point of having Wireless Network Adapters, but it just really depends if your router is by your computer. Also, you can get a 450 watt power supply, i dont think you need a 550 watt one. The rest i'm not really an expert at so ill let other people give you advice.
Ok, the part list is up.
Sorry, trying to figure out how to put the parts.
Thanks for the help!! Any recommendations on which case I should get?
