Hello there.

I'm an absolute beginner at pc building and I'm looking for help for my first build. I have around $800 budget and hopes it could go lower. I intend to use the pc for video editing at 1080p or maybe higher if possible :P And I also want to game smoothly (GTA 5 and such etc (can handle most AAA titles) and maintain low temperature.

I prefer 16 gb of ram and at least theres an ssd. I have my old hdd to add on the memory capacity. + wifi adapter pci :o

See what I mean about the budget. It can be skimped to get to $800 but any less would be lower quality parts. Or if you are open to different part suggestions, we can go from there.

I'd be open to different parts suggestion but would like to retain the cpu and ram.

I know you are looking to build a pc but let me show you this pre built dell off of best buy for $899 https://www.bestbuy.com/site/dell-inspiron-desktop-amd-ryzen-7-1700-16gb-memory-amd-radeon-rx-580-1tb-hard-drive-recon-blue/5948598.p?skuId=5948598

With prices of gpu and ram being so high prebuilt pc's are cheaper and better performance for the buck.

Here is this pc same specs custom built

Not bad at all. But the setback is the gpu. I certainly prefer nvidia. Still looking for ways to minimise my budget by including nvidia aswell. Still, thank you. I'd be open to pre built suggestions and will be looking for it. +1! :)

No prob. But I didn't even notice but for the gpu I put in a 4gb instead of the 8gb that the pre built comes with. So it would actually be a bit more than $1300.

Tbh the only way I'd go with nvidia is if you can find a pre built with 16gb of ram and a 1070 for the same price. Other wise going with anything less, the 580 8gb will out perform.

what are the pro and cons of nvidia vs amd if you wouldnt mind explaining? + is the prebuilt good for editing at 1080p at least?

  • 28 months ago

You have better overclocking potential with amd and they cost less. Even though nvidia mostly has better benchmarks. For your budget at this point of time that pre built is the best choice for you. It will definitely be good for editing.

Actually the 1060 6GB and the RX-580 trade blows depending on the title and the DX version.

Location, Operating system? Also, a budget of $800 isn't a lot when it comes to building a pc at this current time. The cheapest gtx 1050 you could get would be around $200. And that is questionable for "smooth" gameplay at 1080p. Preferably at 1080p a gtx 1060 is better for most AAA titles, however the cheapest in Stock 1060 ranges from $300-600. 16 gb of ram is going to be almost another $200. So realistically speaking, $800 isn't Going to be quite enough.

Living in Asia and prefer win 10. I know $800 is not enough but just looking for possibilities. I know gpu prices are crazy at this current time. I have found builds online that is under $800 on YouTube.... Well I'm a noob so probably this is wishful thinking but always being positive to either wait until gpu prices stabilize and build it later or just get something that fits my budget and doing an upgrade later on. My budget could probably go up to $1000 if I'm desperate as such.

With an os this just isn't possible.

I would even suggest going prebuilt

obviously get windows 10 from the microsoft store, there is an option for a free download, but you will still need the product key.

Get a CXM power supply instead, the Seasonic 520W lacks many modern features.
