I wanted to move from console gaming to PC, this is what motivated me to build my first PC. As it is my first build and I intend to play games that are not that demanding such as Borderlands, I went for the cheap but upgradable. Here is my reasoning behind each parts
CPU : I wanted to try the Ryzen and, well, it's cheaper than Intel. Plus it comes with the cooler so it was a no brainer. Opted for the 5 so that if I decide to play more demanding games, it won't be too much of a stretch.
MOBO : There are cheaper MOBOs out there but I really liked the look of this one. Also, it has really good comments and, of course, RGB !
RAM : Went for a single stick of 8GB, because I think it is quite enough for the games I am playing. And if I ever want to upgrade, I can just add another stick. Went for crucial beacause it's reliable although RAM is RAM...
HDD : 1TB of storage is more than enough since I will only use this PC for gaming. Could have added an SSD for my OS but since I wanted the build to be as cheap as possible, I didn't go for it. In the future this would be a good improvement though, when I have more money.
GPU : Went for the 1050 ti because mining -_- otherwise I would have liked a 1060 but since it was double the price, I kinda had to go for the 1050 ti.
CASE : Lots of space to build in, small window to see the computer without exposing the less attractive parts (and my poor cable management). But truth is I actually bought this case because ORANGE !
PSU : Basic EVGA 500W because that's about twice what I need so there is still enough power in it for me to upgrade the PC.
