What do you guys think about this PC Gaming build?

It has a Ryzen R5 1400 @3.65ghz
A asrock ab350m Matx mobo
2x 4gb crucial ddr4 ram 2400hz
EVGA G2 supernova 650watt psu
2x 1tb Toshiba hdd
1x 120gb SanDisk ssd
PNY GTX 1060 6GB

Can this build last me for 2 years do you guys think?
Or will I need to upgrade the cpu and gpu down the road in like a year?

  2. Looks fairly decent. 4C/8T won't get old fast, neither will the GTX 1060 6GB at 1080p@60fps.

  3. You don't need to upgrade the CPU + GPU later. You will still be able to play the same games at the same graphical settings (which may be relatively lower in the future).

    You motherboard only has 2 ram slots. It is better to start with a single stick of 8gb ram so in future you can upgrade by adding in another stick of ram if needed.

  5. Nice! Good to know that the parts I picked up are at least good. Yeah I might pick up 16gb of ram in two 8gb sticks.

    I'm still running a i5-3570k and gtx660ti. Is it old? Sure. Does it do the job? Sure. Does it play the latest games at over 60fps at ultra settings? Not even close. Lasting 2 years is a highly subjective question considering what your ultimate goals are. A 4c/8t cpu at over 3.0GHz is good for years yet, probably 4 or more, or all those ppl running i5's and i7's are in big trouble. A gtx1060/6 is plenty to get great fps on current games on 1080p/60Hz, those monitors aren't changing anytime soon or everything below the power of a gtx1070 will be bunk and a pre-built Walmart pc will go from $400 to over $800 overnight.

    So yes, you'll be plenty good for more than a few years yet unless you expect to have the best possible frames at the very highest settings for every game.
