need advice to build pc

hi all

im new in building pc, i wanna DIY a RGB gaming PC. can anyone help suggest a build?

my budget is about 1.8k to 2k for CPU only (is this too much?). my overall budget is about 3k including monitor (most probably 27inch which is sufficient for me), mouse and keyboard. i dont mind push up a bit of my budget if required.

i wish to have the CPU for gaming and all rounder (multi-task) but not workstation for editing and etc as i don't do that (more of daily usage).

so far i have only research into casing which i decide it's Cooler Master MasterBox MB530P.

i do not require full RGB, maybe just fan, cable ,additional stripes and radiator that has RGB.
i also prefer fan than water cooling

any kind souls can help suggest one PC?

most probably would play fps like fortnite, pubg, overwatch?
i do play ps4 and switch games, since i would have a better pc, i might play on pc instead?

i have roughly make a list of parts and i don't know if this is good.

processer - ryzen 7 2700x
mobo - asus tuf b450m-plus
ram - g.skill trident z rgb ddr4 3200 mhz 2X8
radiator - coolermaster ma410m arbg tuf edition
power - seasonic focus plus 650fx
casing - cooler master masterbox mb530p
ssd - samsung 860 evo 250 gb m.2
hdd - wd 3.5 blue
fan - cooler master masterfan mf120r X 3

with the above, it's about 1.6k 1.7k liao. for gfx, i'm not sure so. maybe wait for 2060 instead
not sure if i need sound card, cd writer or any other stuff?

Since u mostly gaming and web browsing only, should downgrade the processor and motherboard and leave more budget for gpu, like rtx 2070

Get a ryzen 2600 and cheap b450m board will do

agreed with Alexls. Get the Asrock B450m Pro4 or the Gigabyte B450m-DS3H.

with the tasks you are doing, a stock cooler is sufficient to be honest. unless you are looking to OC.

You donít need a sound card as onboardís good enough lest youíre an audiophile and honestly, better to get DAC/Amp combo than a soundcard.

Optical Drives arenít really needed lest you have CDs that you still have to run like OS, Music etc.

what if i may do some streaming and multi tasking for daily usage?

after further research, i may go for this.

AMD RYZEN 7 2700X with Wraith Prism RGB Cooler
COOLERMASTER MA410M ADDRESSABLE RGB TUF EDITION
ASUS PRIME B450M-A (MATX / 4X DDR4 / 3200MHZ / 6X SATA / 1X M.2 / RGB)
G.SKILL TRIDENT Z RGB DDR4 3200Mhz 2x8GB (F4-3200C16D-16GTZR)
SEASONIC FOCUS PLUS 650FX
COOLER MASTER MASTERBOX MB530P ARGB TG (360MM RADIATOR)
SAMSUNG SSD 860 EVO 250GB M.2 (550MB/s READ / 520MB/s WRITE)
WD 3.5" HDD 1 TB (BLACK)
COOLER MASTER MASTERFAN MF120R ARGB 3IN1 + CONTROLLER

i wanna invest something that can last me for the next 5 to 8 years at least hence i choose the current best ryden 7. and i like RGB/ARGB, hence i was deciding a RGB radiator which is better for next 5 to 8 years instead of stock cooler. i did look at hyper X 212, but there's no RGB for it. i got a bit of OCD, hence i prefer all the RGB/ARGB to be the same. with the above, it's about 1.6k without GFX liao.

i dont mind spending 600 to 800 more for gfx. for GFX, im waiting for 2060 which i believe is much value compare to 2070 and 2080. would it still overkill with the specs?

for MOBO, is Asrock B450m Pro4 or ASUS PRIME B450M-A better and value for money against ryzen 7 2700x?
i see that the asrock has argb header which i want, asus don't have haha but it doesn't matter i guess for me.
i was looking at Asus Tuf B450M-PLUS Gaming also. i also read that ASUS has lesser BIOS problem compare to asrock and msi.

headache ah... any other suggestion?

2600 good enough for streaming and light multi-tasking. Seriously, you don't really need a 2700X (but 8 cores is still better than 6).

Motherboard don't matter too much, I'd go for Asrock boards.

Also, you might want to look into using PCPartPicker for your parts list next time.

I decide to go with the following RGB build

AMD RYZEN 7 2700X with Wraith Prism RGB Cooler
COOLERMASTER MA410M ADDRESSABLE RGB TUF EDITION
ASUS ROG B450-F GAMING
G.SKILL TRIDENT Z RGB DDR4 3200Mhz 2x8GB (F4-3200C16D-16GTZR)
SEASONIC FOCUS PLUS 650FX
COOLER MASTER MASTERBOX MB530P ARGB TG (360MM RADIATOR)
SAMSUNG SSD 860 EVO 250GB M.2 (550MB/s READ / 520MB/s WRITE)
WD 2.5" HDD 1 TB (BLACK)
COOLER MASTER MASTERFAN MF120R ARGB 3IN1 + CONTROLLER
GeForce RTX 2060 GAMING Z 6G

I like to know if 650W is sufficient. Next is anyone can suggest a monitor?

I'm looking for 27inch 144hz 1440p, budget about 600 to 800. Any recommendation?
Due to my table size, I'm unable to get 34 inch

I can't answer technical questions as I'm in the midst of waiting for my parts to arrive to and I'm a first time builder too.

Word of advice: once you know your parts and it is within your budget, just buy the part because if you don't, you will be like me where the thing I want to buy is sold out already

If u r gonna OC, then better to get x470 mobo. While b450 can oc, components may nt be designed to substain high clocks. Better off getting a mobo designed for oc or change cpu to 2700 or 2600. 6C is more than enough.

650w is more than enough for single gpu setup.

U may wanna chose other tower coolers then pair with rgb fans. Such as bequiet darkpro 4. Its tested to be quite good for tower coolers.

1x wd black 1tb maybe can buy 2tb hdd liao. Might as well just go for wd purp 2tb sua. If u play a lot of games, consider bumping up ssd to 500gb instead.

For $600-800 monitor, look at prism lazada.

just buy whatever you think is ok & within your budget.. you won't get good advise here.. really.. :p
first you will get some1 said "overkill".. why you need this that.. bla bla bla..
then some will ask what game you play.. what monitor you using.. in "questioning" tone..
end up like you need to 'explain' your decision to them.. why should you? That's your $$.


research elsewhere and trust yourself.
