Want to build my first pc, but getting married so I am putting parts on the registry.

Hey everyone, this would be my first build and even with how much research I have put into this I have no idea what I am doing. I do know that I want a desktop that is a mid-tower that runs on amd rayzen 7 and what ever is the equivalent radeon part. I also want a solid cooling friendly tower that is red, black or both, but that is about it. I know more ram is good, and having a terabyte is the smallest you realistically need but should shoot for more.

I am not too big on the RBG craze because I think its unnecessarily drawing power so parts really dont need it for this list. (can someone actually tell me if rgb actually takes more power? I want to save on my energy bill)

And again this list would be going on a wedding registry so today's pricing is not really a concern but more or so the part itself. Realistically lets put the price point around $1500.

Also no keyboard, mouse or monitor are needed so that does not need to go into the budget.

I greatly appreciate anyone for their suggestions, advice and time helping me.

Cheers.

RGB does not take a significant amount of power, so you don't need to worry about that.

I went back one generation to an AMD Ryzen 2 CPU. It is the same one I use in my video editing and gaming system and it works great.

This is a liquid cooled system, so it should be able to get the most power from that CPU.

The Motherboard I chose is a perfectly fine option. I prefer MSI and Corsair for all of my components, so you will see a pattern of the same brands in this build. If you need WIFI included in your system, I have the MSI Gaming Pro Carbon AC which has a WIFI card built in. It is a little bit more expensive though.

Fitting with my Corsair brand loyalty, I chose their Vengeance LPX RAM. I have this set in my system and it has not given me any troubles with my 2700. It runs full speed just fine.

I included a new, blazing fast Corsair M.2 SSD drive for quick boot up and program operation. In addition, I chose a slower-but-higher-capacity HDD from Western Digital (my choice for HDD brands). I am sure the 3TB Seagate Barracuda drive in AnonymousUser99's build is good too. I just prefer WD. It has plenty of space to last a long time storing files.

GPU was just the best MSI Nvidia card I could find once I built the rest of the list.

Corsair case. Has some good features for the price. The Corsair Power Supply I included is big enough to accommodate bigger upgrades down the road, so that's nice.

Hope this list helps!

thank you for your advice and taking the time for your list. I too like the corsair brand, and actually did not know that the motherboard needed wifi capability. So thank you again for educating me on that

You can get a board without WIFI too. Connecting that to internet requires a hard connection though (network cable from your router to your computer). All motherboards have the connection for that.

If you get a board without WIFI built in, you can get PCI-E WIFI cards, like these:

I am not sure which one is good or not, so I would ask around the forums if you decide to go with this method. I believe the advantage is that it allows for faster connections when you have a dedicated card. But that may not be the case. Again, just ask on some of the other topics like networking to get a solution.
