Light Gaming/Graphic Design Build?

Conrhyss
  • 9 months ago

Hi guys, just looking for some advice.

I'm looking to build a matx pc on a tight budget and this is what Im thinking: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/ttmmw6

The pc will be used mainly for graphic design, using the Adobe suite. Might require some light video editing but not expecting 4k quality.

Looking at playing some lighter games too, Fortnite on medium settings for example, with a 75hz monitor.

I understand that the motherboard may be better than what I need, but I'd look at the possibility of purchasing a OC CPU in the future.

Note: This will be my first pc build so just wanting to see what everyone's thoughts and opinions are.

Thanks! PCPartPicker Part List

Should just mention, 8gb Ram is just until pay day, looking to get 16gb+ asap :)

I was about to say, yeah, for video editing and gaming you want at least 16gb ram,

this is a good choice once you upgrade.

Good luck, build looks good.
