Do you need anything else included in your budget?

  • Operating system?
  • Peripherals? (e.g. keyboard, monitor, mouse, headphones etc..)

Yes, they pretty much are (they will still perform just as well as the ones you've selected prior), just to push for that better GPU while staying within your budget.

I think you're spending too much on storage. If you cut your HDD space to 2TB, you can push for an RTX 2070. If you really need that storage though, you can always add more HDD's later on.

Honestly IMO there will probably be no other LAN that can top the grand finals of season 5. A game 7 0 second goal to force overtime, with one goal left securing the winner..

What are your thoughts on Kronovi moving to Rogue and Chicago moving to G2?

Rocket League is the only game where I follow the esports scene. I don't plan on going competitive (even though I'm Champ 2 in 3s :P) but I find it interesting to watch pro players play and see their perspective on their plays and their decision making. I was at London when they held the RLCS LAN finals back in season 5 and man.. the experience overall was just unbelievable (pretty much my first time going to a gaming event).

  • 10 months ago

As a Cooler Master N200 owner, it's a pretty decent case for the price, and offers great airflow due to its fully meshed front. Cable management is a little difficult IMO, as there isn't too much room at the back for it.

If silence is what you're really after, my case recommendation would be the Fractal Design Define Mini C.

https://pcpartpicker.com/product/vBTrxr/fractal-design-define-mini-c-microatx-mid-tower-case-fd-ca-def-mini-c-bk

While its airflow is quite limited due to its closed front (don't worry, there are some vents on the side for it), it comes with noise dampening material all around inside the case to reduce noise to a minimum. If this appeals to you, I'd recommend it, if you can do without an optical drive. I'm almost certain that it would be much easier to work with than the N200.

Sorry for bumping this topic, but I want to share a few of mine lol.

  1. Breaking the USB3.0 pins on the motherboard for my brother's PC. I was trying to do a bit of cable management when I accidentally yanked the USB3.0 cable out too hard up to the point the pins were bent. Well he won't be using the 2 USB3.0 cables on the front of the case anytime soon...

  2. Buying slightly mismatching RAM in an impulse attempt to upgrade to 16GB RAM. By that I meant buying the low profile version of the RAM I currently have instead of the taller heatspreader ones.. I mean hey.. at least it worked in the end.. now it just looks a little weird.

I'm a little bit out of the loop so bear with me lol. A simple Ryzen 3 2200G build with a 240GB SSD (as a boot drive and to put his MS applications), that should do more than enough for his use case. I don't know if he'll need the 1TB HDD depending on his workload but it's there if he needs it. Just under £50 left in the budget so feel free to choose a better case for him.

Well, I've provided two builds for you.

http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/p/FhDTqs - £350 (At least medium-ish settings at 1080p, can possibly get a dedicated GPU once funds are available.)

http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/p/YwtRyc - £500 (High settings on most games at 1080p, potential to upgrade to a higher end processor later on, can be overclocked.)

Both do not have optical drives considering you can install the OS through a USB flash drive. (even I don't know how to do that myself lol..) If you require one, minimum is like £10.

Didn't really thought the A/M cooler was necessary since I have a locked processor. I'm stuck with the stock cooler and it has been solid since. Aethestics weren't too much of an issue really. (Except cable management ofc) The case doesn't have a window so barely anyone would look inside the case on a daily basis and notice the RAM colour mismatch haha.

Thanks anyway. =)

Just a few pointers:

  • If possible, flip the PSU so the fan is facing downwards. It draws cooler air from the bottom rather than taking warm air inside the case. Only exception to this is when you place your computer on carpet.
  • Your cable management could be a lot better IMO. You can most likely improve your temperatures without the cables obstructing direct airflow to your hardware.

  • I think a Z97 motherboard would be better, since it's more suited for overclocking.
  • The CM Hyper 212 EVO is a popular aftermarket cooler choice for mild overclocks.
  • You can actually get an R9 270 for the same price of your chosen GPU choice. (Not to mention it's better!)
  • You most likely won't need 16GB RAM for gaming but if you've found a good deal on it, I don't see why not.

  • Check with the supplier if the BIOS is updated to the latest version to support the CPU. (It's worth asking)
  • The Zalman Z3 Plus is 192mm wide, and that CPU cooler is 159mm tall. So it will most likely fit if I'm correct, but it may be really tight fit.

  • The FX-8320E is a more energy efficient CPU than its regular counterparts, and you may overclock it to obtain similar performance to the 8350.
  • I also changed the PSU to a better quality one. This XFX PSU is a rebranded Seasonic, so you'll get one of the best quality PSUs available. It also provides enough headroom if you want to overclock.
  • These small savings can be put towards a better GPU, not just better for gaming, but maybe also for your editing/rendering. It is also pretty power efficient overall too. Clearly not the strongest budget GPU out there, but it may be enough for your needs.
