Basically I want a low or mid range of that i can upgrade later do I can do heavy gaming. Right now, just light to medium gaming, streaming (twitch), recording and fl studio hopefully I can get something that isnt too expensive right now. Like I said, I'll upgrade in the future. Just as long as I can play any game (new or old) on low or medium. I wont recommended a budget but if you want to ask me then I'll throw out a number.

The vega 11 is like a 1030

About 50-55fps on 1080p with a mix of normal and high settings.

+5 without recording, +2 for 3400G

Is it possible to get some parts used? Would that affect anything?

Possibly, though I don't see any good prices for the 2400G on eBay. Cheapest is $122, and it's $121 NEW right now on Amazon!

Do you need a B450 Max board for 3rd gen APUs? I thought APUs were a architecture behind

I'm new to building PC's so I don't even know what that is.

I was asking the guy who recommended a parts list above, but I'll explain it because I remember how confusing everything seemed a short while ago to myself.

APUs are CPUs (processors) with build in graphics (in this case called VEGA, if you were wondering about that) B450 is a type of motherboard socket for CPUs. Ryzen, which is brand of CPUs, just released their generation 3 processors. These processors are compatible with X570 motherboards. (note the 5) B450 motherboards typically aren't immediately compatible with this Ryzen 3rd Gen, but the MAX part of the mobo that I was referencing indicates that they are compatible despite the difference in socket. However, APUs (I think) still use B450 even if they are 3rd gen. Hope this helps!

Do you know if I can go cheaper with the video card just for now?

  • 1 month ago

I could put in a cheaper graphics card but you aren't then going to get much more performance than the Vega graphics on an APU, (just looked up the performance figures for a $100 RX 550 and they are worse than Vega 11 APU graphics!).

So, I've taken out the graphics card altogether and changed the CPU for an APU with integrated Vega graphics. I've also taken out the hard drive and doubled the SSD capacity, (as upgrading your boot drive is a serious pain to do and everything wants to initially download to your C: drive. This has brought the cost down significantly, (closer to the price of test19's build to which I was quite surprised by how cheap he managed to make it), whilst also keeping the core components I wanted to include to aid future upgrades e.g. the power supply, case & motherboard.

Mainly it's a saved list for the best $450 build lol.

Alright, it'll probably take a few months to save up for a mid range then. Okay, thanks for the info.

Mid range will serve you a lot better.

https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/list/P9GPsk This is hopefully going to be my first pc aswell but put alot of research into it. It can play pretty much rvery game and later on im going to upgrade to a 3600 then rx 5700 or maybe a 2070 super.

Bit more expensive than what I've seen recommended, but I think $800-$1000 is the sweet-spot for value seekers like you or myself. Reply with any questions you have

Ok, everything is manageable. I'll probably have to save from a few checks for the video card. Hopefully I'm gaming on the pc no later than February/March.

The one I sent first would be better for your criteria, and it's cheaper. Mine has been influenced fairly strongly by theme and features (I'm going to begin streaming, hence the 8-core CPU and more expensive GPU)

Hopefully after I get this PC I wont have to spend large amounts again.
