Modest AMD Gaming Build

by manirelli



Our Modest AMD Gaming Build is built around the Ryzen 5 2600. Using the stock cooler you should be able to achieve moderate overclocks on this unlocked processor.


We've paired the R5 2600 with a parametric list of mATX B450 motherboards that supports up to 64GB of DDR4 memory, multiple SATA6 devices, and front panel USB3.0.


For this build we opted to go with 16GB of DDR4 memory. The parametric filter finds the best price on 16GB kits of memory that are within AMD’s recommended specifications. We've limited it to a range from DDR4-2666 to DDR4-3200 as Ryzen CPUs scale well with higher frequency memory. At the current time, using memory rated over 3200mhz is not advised without doing extra research as DIMM support can be hit or miss. AMD is working on releasing additional BIOS updates to add better compatibility for higher frequency memory.


We're also using a parametric filter that will actively select the best-priced SSD of at least 240GB capacity. Additionally, we're including a 2TB mechanical hard drive in a parametric filter for things like storing media and extra games. Everyone's storage needs differ, so feel free to change the capacity to your usage.


At this price point we suggest using the Nvidia GTX 1060 6GB edition. We specifically filter for the 6GB model as the 3GB not only has lower VRAM but also a lower core count leading to lower fps while gaming. The performance across most games will be similar to the AMD RX 570. We've created a parametric filter to show you the lowest priced, full sized GTX 1060 6GB which will be powerful enough for most AAA games at 1080p.


All of the components are housed in the MasterBox Lite 3.1 TG MicroATX mini tower. This case is an affordable option that has a large side panel window, front panel USB3.0, room for full size graphics cards, and cutouts in the motherboard tray for easy cable routing.


For our power supply, we're using a parametric selection of well-reviewed fully and semi-modular units, all of which will provide more than enough power for this system.

I’m looking to play games like Minecraft, Skyrim and fallout 4 with a lot of mods. No necessarily graphics mods but mods in general. Should this play it? I don’t want to spend the money and have to buy a higher end one

Takka 2 points 1 month ago

for mods i find that CPU is more important that GPU in this case, minecraft works better with more ram. But I think for the price this is pretty good price to performance, I would change de motherboard but that's it

rogdog56 2 points 1 month ago

This system will be more than enough for those games. It's pretty well known that minecraft and skyrim are very easy to run at ultra; but if you want some fallout 4 gameplay on a similar machine to this one look at this video. Also if you're getting this system don't get a biostar mobo.

NerdyTurd 1 point 1 month ago

This should be fine for what your games :)

Sinistas 1 point 8 days ago

This build will absolutely handle modded Skyrim/FO4. I have a very similar one and both run fantastically.

TheQuackSavior 3 points 1 month ago

16GB of RAM? I hope it can run Cities: Skylines with a lot of mods installed.

travismoritz 3 points 1 month ago

Should be able to just fine

rogdog56 2 points 1 month ago

No problem with cities, even with 8gb ram (at least on my end) but if I were you I'd go with 3000 mhz ram or at least make sure you can OC the ram you get. More with 1st gen than 2nd gen ryzen, but ryzen still loves memory speed. If you look at benchmarks you will notice most things below 3000 have a 3-4 fps decrease the further down you go; but going above 3000 has diminishing returns; maybe an extra frame.

Galepsi 2 points 1 month ago

I'm sure you've seen and answered dozens of the same question, but: With a budget of $41.00 USD over the total current price, do you have any specific recommendations? This will be my first personal build, and I'd like to "dip my toes" into PC building before I go all out with research etc. Any help is much appreciated!

Sebebi 5 points 1 month ago

Something like a micro atx MSI or Gigabyte mobo for an extra 20-30 dollars would be good instead of the sketchy biostar one.

ragontx 1 point 15 days ago

I'm with you instead of 16 of ram get 8 and upgrade mobo.

dallior 1 point 6 days ago

I wouldn't say downgrade on RAM; Ryzen eats the stuff for breakfast. The $41 OP has to spare will be enough to upgrade.

rogdog56 4 points 1 month ago

+1 for Sebebi, don't get a biostar. Also if you don't have size constraints consider what Takka said; get an ATX. A compact ATX case like the NZXT h500 is a little bigger but an ATX system has more functionality

Takka 3 points 1 month ago

if i were you i'd just get a ATX board

gigglepig_buster 3 points 1 month ago

remember to get a wireless card (if you need one). that is around the price

nooodles123 1 point 19 days ago

Galepsi! For 40$ more you could buy a Ryzen 7 1700 for only 43 dollars more!!!!!

Tritches 2 points 1 month ago

I am thinking about building a PC for the first time. Would you guys recommend this build for someone who knows next to nothing about building a PC? Also could you recommend a specific mother board upgrade for this? I can spend about 30$ more for a motherboard upgrade but I know nothing about compatibility.

gigglepig_buster 1 point 1 month ago

Pcpartpicker and r/buildapc on reddit have ways to check for compatabilty Im in the same situation as you!

CharGibbs 1 point 1 month ago

For a first time build, this is fine. I would personaly get an ATX mobo but that is entirely up to you.

henrypfournier 1 point 15 days ago

Where can i find an ATX mobo? Can't find it

CharGibbs 1 point 14 days ago

I'm not sure how to explain this sorry, but they are the full sized mobos (I'm pretty sure). A good one that I have previously bought is the ASRock - AB350 Pro4 board, but only get this if you are getting a ryzen CPU, as it will not work with an Intel chip. Getting a smaller mobo that isn't ATX is perfectly fine, it's just what you prefer.

Dannyaguado 1 point 9 days ago

this sight has a compatibilty filter so just look at the prices

aguywhoislookingforwardforapc 2 points 7 days ago

Does it run Fortnite with some recpectful FPS(70+) and epic settings?

brenboaz 1 point 4 days ago

thats what i wanna know too

nturner28 1 point 1 month ago

How well would a 1070 quicksilver work with this? Any bottle-necking?

travismoritz 2 points 1 month ago

no with a ryzen 5 2600 a 1070 should pair perfectly well with it, there shouldn't be any bottleneck as this is a mid-high range CPU

CharGibbs 1 point 1 month ago

No, there will not be any bottlenecks. Don't worry about that

moupsoup 1 point 1 month ago

Would this run TF2 1080p max settings at 60fps?

PrivatePengu 4 points 1 month ago

Yes, definitely. TF2 is one of the least demanding games on the market, it'll run without a problem.

Okno13 1 point 1 month ago

my a6 ran tf2 at 60fps lol

CharGibbs 1 point 1 month ago


BurnTheConsoleUser 1 point 1 month ago

In my opinion not to sound like an *** would go to r51600 see if a gtx 1070 could fit in the budget instead.

travismoritz 2 points 1 month ago

that'd work just fine if you wanted to but you could be better off just getting the 2600 only using 8gb of memory as 8 is enough for most games. That could create some room in the budget, and you also could keep your eye on ebay or other used sites to try and find a good deal just make sure it hasn't been a mining gpu

57yuhgyh 1 point 1 month ago

Yeah, you're right. The 1600 also has a better stock cooler. And to answer the other guy: 8GB are too little for 2018. If this were a <600$ build maybe.

Vlaaz 1 point 1 month ago

Does this computer run fortnight with ultra settings over 100 FPS?

TheQuackSavior 1 point 1 month ago


fearless_coconut 1 point 1 month ago

Hmmm this might be one to save. I haven't built a gaming pc before, only standard ones

Takka 1 point 1 month ago

it's pretty much the same, maybe just how to install a GPU but it's as easy as installing ram more or less. You should be fine building it if you built one before

bitasuite 1 point 1 month ago

Could I use this with an Nvidia Shield or do I need an Intel CPU? Also could someone recommend a nice white case? Thanks

travismoritz 2 points 1 month ago

If you want an intel CPU it'd work just fine you'd just have to pick out a different motherboard as the b450 isnt compatible with intel sockets. https://www.amazon.com/NZXT-Tower-Computer-White-CA-S340W-W1/dp/B00NGMIBXC/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1535210554&sr=8-2&keywords=nzxt+white thats a nice white case if you want it

Rocketsox313 1 point 1 month ago

I bought the wrong motherboard by accident and purchased the B450M Pro-M2. Will this still work?

Takka 2 points 1 month ago

Yes, since it's still AM4

freesol 1 point 1 month ago

It says it supports up to 64gb of ram but the motherboard only has 2 alots? And in spec max os 32gb

travismoritz 1 point 1 month ago

yeah it is wrote wrong the motherboard is microATX so it only has 2 dimm slots, but if you just want a full ATX tower and not micro ATX then you could go with a normal sized motherboard such as https://www.amazon.com/GIGABYTE-B450-AORUS-PRO-Motherboard/dp/B07FW85VFT/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1535210650&sr=8-2&keywords=b450 or https://www.amazon.com/Ryzen-Gaming-Motherboard-B450M-CSM/dp/B07FKV5HWJ/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1535210650&sr=8-1&keywords=b450

langalore 1 point 1 month ago

Nice guild. I would up the memory to 3000 though. Most of the reviews and builds I've seen pair 2nd gen Ryzen with 3000+ to take full advantage.

Takka 1 point 1 month ago

yes this is my fav guild

zetu 1 point 1 month ago

Do i need a internet card

Takka 1 point 1 month ago

if your using wifi you may need a wifi adapter

hamsterboy 1 point 1 month ago

Noob here. What would you recommend for wifi adapter in that kind of motherboard? I'm planning to buy either a motherboard with wifi (no idea right now what model) or same motherboard with wifi adapter.

Theenano 1 point 1 month ago

Prob a dumb question but is the size of the MB significant at all? Like, I see the one on the parts list is a microATX so is the only benefit is to be able to fit it in a smaller case or is there any performance difference with an ATX board in the same price range?

manirelli staff submitter 8 Builds 2 points 1 month ago

ATX motherboards generally have additional ports/pcie slots and more fan headers than mATX motherboards but it will vary based on model.

stin9999 1 point 1 month ago

Great build, this is all just food for thought. MSI armor RX 580 8GB from amazon.com for 325 all in. Same card was running 350 to 375 amazon.ca. Offers same performance for 55 bucks less. Also had the Master box 3.1 your going to be running high temps. I ditched mine for a more air flow choice but is was hard cause the thing looks so good. For PSU's they are selling EVGA 550 bronze for 55 bucks. [STAFF REMOVED] Hope this helps save more money!

papashug 1 point 1 month ago

would this run pubg and fortnite, at 144 fps and high graphics?

Takka 1 point 1 month ago

fortnite maybe, but PUBG is not well optimized so might have to check for that. Might need to drop to medium/low to get 144 fps

dunc.grn 1 point 1 month ago

I have never built a pc before would this be good to start as a first build

Takka 1 point 1 month ago

I think you'll be fine. But changing the motherboard is a good idea I think.

AgentTeen 1 point 1 month ago

newbie here does it come with an operating system or do I have to buy the operating system myself

Potatogamer1230 2 points 1 month ago

you have to buy the OS your self. if you already have a prebuilt laptop or pc you could use the OS from that. you would just need to get your product key.

TW08 1 point 1 month ago

Question: Can this PC run rendering programs such as Lumion 8?

Takka 0 points 1 month ago

No, need to get a better GPU, CPU should be fine

ohyesdanny 1 point 1 month ago

Is this able to stream and play games and have other pages open in the background at the same time with no issues.

Takka 1 point 1 month ago

stream, not really. Open pages are mostly RAM so with 16 gb here you will be fine for that

disabel95 1 point 1 month ago

Can someone please help? I just finished the build, everything turns on, but the graphics card turns off after 10 seconds, and I have no signal on my monitor. How do I fix this?

gaming_tryhard 1 point 1 month ago

Did you plug in the hdmi cable?

serjien 1 Build 1 point 1 month ago

Thanks for sharing this build. I built this one over the past week, with slight modifications, and it has been running great. I added the two extra fans for the case just in case. Read lots of reviews saying it doesnt have very good airflow. So far, with 3 fans, it has maintained things cool.

CaptainClumsy 1 point 1 month ago

Would this be able to run games such as Planet Coaster at high graphical settings?

manirelli staff submitter 8 Builds 1 point 1 month ago


hamsterboy 1 point 1 month ago

Noob here. I may need a wifi for our current setup in our apartment. With that, should I buy a different motherboard with wifi or just a wifi adapter? If motherboard with wifi, what would you recommend on this build? if wifi adapter, anything particular? Using it for gaming (primary) and work/other stuff like excel, visio, photoshop, vegas pro (secondary).


atomicknight1 3 points 1 month ago

In general motherboards with built in wi-fi have really bad wi-fi adapters unless you get a really pricey one. You can get a really quality wi-fi adapter for $50-$60 that you just plug in. much cheaper than getting a top of the line motherboard, and easier to replace if something happens

Takka 2 points 1 month ago

I think you should get another motherboard, I recommand the Gigabyte - X470 AORUS ULTRA GAMING ATX AM4 Motherboard

or this one : https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B079VWKBTT/?tag=pcp0f-20

hamsterboy 2 points 1 month ago

Thanks for the references. This one really helps.

NoahTheGoat666 1 point 1 month ago

Will this run fortnite on epic?

Takka 1 point 1 month ago

Depends on the resolution you are running at.

Vinnyb 1 point 1 month ago

Would this be able to work with the LG 43inch 4K monitor for non-gaming (business) applications? I plan on using the feature that splits it into 4 21.5inch 1080P monitor equivalents. My business apps include mostly stock trading applications like thinkorswim or TC2000 (in case anyone knows of them).

Takka 1 point 1 month ago

Yes. Any monitors that have the same port than you GPU or motherboard works. In fact those programs wouldn't even need 4K or this PC, you could get a cheaper one and it would work fine since you don't game nor edit videos

atomicknight1 1 point 1 month ago

Would this build work with ripjaws v series 8GB memory rather than 16, and a rosewill hive 550W bronze. It says its compatible when I edit the build, but just wanted to make sure since I already have those parts laying around

Takka 1 point 1 month ago

If it's a DDR4 kit it should work. Same with the PSU your have

vagabond139 5 Builds 1 point 24 days ago


toastyBEARcub 1 point 1 month ago

Question about the motherboard. I see a lot of comments saying to maybe change the motherboard. Should I stick with the motherboard on the build or what motherboard should I use instead? I am building this exact build minus the case. For the case I went with a pricier Corsair mid tower.

manirelli staff submitter 8 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

Depending on your region and retailer settings you are going to see a different motherboard than other people viewing this list. If you have questions about a particular part I would make a post in the applicable forum or lock the parts in the part list and post to the part list opinions wanted forum.

GyrosPizzeria 1 point 1 month ago

You should change the case, lite 3.1 is pretty bad.

GetBombarded 1 point 1 month ago

Hey anyone know if I can run fortnite,csgo,league,worldofwarcraft and maybe gta and other games on this pc?

Takka 1 point 1 month ago

Yes you can, although change the motherboard if you want to be able to upgrade later on

ChillySnow 1 point 1 month ago

Whats the average fps?

Takka 1 point 1 month ago

It depends on the game dude

ChillySnow 1 point 18 days ago

Fortnite, Skyrim, Pubg, cod

Al12eksi03 1 point 10 days ago

Should destroy Cancernite and Skyrim. Pubg and cod should run at atleast 60 fps aswell

gigglepig_buster 1 point 1 month ago

people have been saying that this mobo is sketch, is there another you would reccomend?

Takka 2 points 1 month ago

The Asus PRIME B450-PLUS is pretty good in my opinion. If you have a little bit money there is the Asus ROG STRIX B450-F GAMING

57yuhgyh 1 point 1 month ago

Imho the -F series is way overpriced for the B450 chipset. The asrock pro lineup are a better deal.

Takka 1 point 1 month ago

but LEDS tho

BrydenHorsler 1 point 1 month ago

can this build run Call of duty: Black Ops 3 at 80-120 fps?

Takka 1 point 1 month ago

Yes. Depends on resolution too. At 1080p you should be fine.

BrydenHorsler 2 points 1 month ago

Thanks a lot.

gigglepig_buster 1 point 1 month ago

Do I need a sound card? or is it onboard somewhere? I would want directional sound for headphones and such.

manirelli staff submitter 8 Builds 2 points 1 month ago

The vast majority of people can use the onboard audio on the motherboard without issue.

gigglepig_buster 1 point 1 month ago

What should I go for if i want an intel CPU instead of AMD

Takka 1 point 1 month ago

Maybe an i5 8600 or Intel Core i5-7500

I would say you would need to get a better cooler if your going with intel though.

Ryzen really is the better option

gigglepig_buster 1 point 1 month ago

How would the ASRock - B450M-HDV Micro ATX AM4 Motherboard go in this build?

Takka 1 point 1 month ago

It would work fine since it's a B450 AM4 motherboard. Remember that AM4 is for AMD Ryzen CPU's.

Strricken 1 point 1 month ago

Hi noob here but I modified this list a little bit can anyone tell me if this part list is ok or if you would change anything thanks in advance! https://pcpartpicker.com/list/vKPCCb

Takka 1 point 1 month ago

I actually think the one you made is better. If you have the budget i'd say go for it. You could even try and fit a gtx 1070 in there wich would give you a pretty decent boost in FPS. But would change the powersupply for a 650w or 600w at least

Takka 1 point 1 month ago


This would be great for 1000$ ish

Strricken 1 point 1 month ago

Thank you!!!

vagabond139 5 Builds 1 point 24 days ago

The NexG/G1 is a very poor choice in PSU. The NexG/G1 is group regulated vs. DC-DC, as a result of being group regulated it has less than ideal voltage regulation and it has merely average ripple suppression, and it has decent build quality. Sounds good right? Without accounting for price its not a bad unit but accounting for its price its competing with juggernauts way out its league like the Seasonic Focus, Evga G3, and the BitFenix Whisper M which are all around better in every way. Even the cheaper Corsair CXM is better than the NexG/G1.

chowderhead05 1 point 29 days ago

I'm a first-timer, got any recommended construction videos, or guides?

vagabond139 5 Builds 1 point 24 days ago

PCPP has quite a few videos of them building PC's. Also just look up how to build a PC, plenty of stuff will come up.

PC Noob here. I’m looking into building my first PC and this build looks like it would be perfect for me. However, I can spend $100-120 extra on this build with my current budget. Is there any recommendations that someone could give me to make this build better?

Happymallow32 1 point 21 days ago

What are you looking for in you pc, if you are gaming this will be fine, if you will game and stream it i recommend a ryzen 7 1700 which has 2 extra cores and only 70 dollars more!

Shoogy 1 point 24 days ago

I am going to be building a PC soon and i want to know is this a good PC to build 1 for starting to build a PC and not knowing anything on how to build one and 2 is this a good enough PC to run Fortnite on the highest graphic settings? No maybes I need for sure answers please.

Sebebi 1 point 17 days ago

This build can definitely play fortnite at the highest settings, although I believe if you upgrade the ram to say 3000 megahertz you could get even more performance because of the ryzen cpu.

Shoogy 1 point 4 days ago


Happymallow32 1 point 21 days ago

Hello, will this work with a Ryzen 7 1700?

Sebebi 1 point 17 days ago

Yes this build would work with that cpu, although the mobo is b450 so it could also work with the ryzen 7 2700

NEWPC2005 1 point 21 days ago

Dang that's called bang for your buck.

kamilo1621 1 point 19 days ago

LitJo19 1 point 10 days ago

i am very interested in this build and i have some questions....do i need a cpu cooler if i dont want to overclock or the stock cooler is enough? will i be able to run cod ww2, far cry 5, bf5 and pubg in 1080p at 60fps? (my monitor is 1080p@60hz) is msi B450 tomahawk a better choice in motherboard?

Sebebi 1 point 8 days ago

great motherboard and this graphics card is perfect for 1080p 60hz. even 144hz if you want to upgrade in the future

ninh 1 point 8 days ago

Hello, I'm a noob. Would changing the motherboard to the ASRock - B450M-HDV Micro ATX AM4 be OK? Also, would I have to buy a Windows 10 Key?

Sebebi 1 point 8 days ago

definitely yes. would totally recommend that mobo. now about that windows 10 can’t really say anything on this site but just youtube search about it

msbcool 1 point 6 days ago

1) How much will the 2600 overclock with the stock cooler?
2) Is the 1060/RX 580 enough for 2560x1080 (21:9 1080p) on AAA games (the games I'm playing/interested in playing are R6, Shadow of War, The Witcher 3, GTA V, Skyrim, and Fallout)? I am willing to sacrifice some settings for this.
3) Is 8GB of RAM enough for the games mentioned above?

Sebebi 1 point 6 days ago

You should aim for 3.8~4.0ghz with the stock cooler and the 1060 is definitely good for any of those games, but make sure to get the 6gb model. 8gb ram is good for almost all demanding games, so maybe when RAM prices drop even further get another 8gb stick or buy a 2x4 kit twice with a different mobo.

TheNaturalStud 1 point 6 days ago

It says this comes to 798$, is this USD? I'm in Canada wanna make sure before I try to order

Sebebi 1 point 6 days ago

yes, usd.

Looks great, just make sure to upgrade that ram to at least 3000mrtz because of the ryzen cpu.

lilOOFS 1 point 3 days ago

could make it cheaper

Sanjex 1 point 1 hour ago

This CPU is amazing for the price of it, I'm really happy I built a PC with it. Only downside is I spent too much money on a monitor, and in the end did not buy a graphics card so I am stuck with a 750 XD

stin9999 0 points 1 month ago

No performance impact on Mobo do to size. They take away extra PCI slots. No big deal unless you want wireless, sound card, Killer etc...
