I just want a mid range gaming pc that will last me a couple of years... also I don't RAM because I already have the two 8 gb sticks

    Your two 8 GB sticks are DDR4?

    A few things here:

    - I'd strongly consider a Ryzen if you're not up at the level of a 7700k or down at the level where you need a Pentium.
    - The G1 power supplies aren't very good. You want a G2, G3, or GS ideally. You can get a G2 for about the same price and it's a significant improvement.
    - No real purpose for a sound card unless you're going to go really high-end with the sound card and your speaker/headphones.
    - Would try to put any savings into the SSD. 120 GB goes fast and you may be happier long-term with a 240.

    If you already own the ram fair enough , 2666mhz or faster would have been better though.

    You don't need that aftermarket aio , its no better than the stock ryzen cooler

    Swapped the ssd to the 275gb m2 mx300, less cable clutter, extra 35gb space & a faster drive.

    You don't want the turbo 1060, its a noisy soab!!

    The pony is a god card , cool & quiet , swapped the PSU to a cx550m , much better than the g1 & very cheap at the minute

    Okay so I edited the build a little bit: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/TNfWpb

    To answer your questions I don't have DDR4 RAM I just have 2 x 8GB DDR3 for my current computer but I added the RAM in the new version. I changed to a Ryzen 5 1600 but had a problem with the motherboard so I changed that to a MSI B350 Tomahawk and I updated the SSD card to a 240 GB version as well. I took your advice with the power supply too and changed it to the G2 version (only costs $4 extra). My final question is do you think this is a good computer? I want to run games at medium graphics nothing too special but my current computer can barely handle games at very low. Thank you for helping my by the way. I am going to do more research because I want to build this computer instead of just having a company do it for me so I'm a little nervous.

    Thank you so much, and sorry if the build is kinda noobish. I'm new to the whole building computers scene and just want to build something that will last me a while instead of constantly trying to find upgrades.

  5. Nothing noobish mate , just need a tiny hitnof fine tuning.
    A couple of years of medium setting gaming ??
    Your expectations are low , it'll do far far better than that.

  6. On a personally level I'd change the case .
    Nothing inherently wrong with it , its well made & comes with 2 decent fans.

    It's just kind of really bland looking for me.

    Okay how's this DIYPC - D480-W ATX Mid Tower Case? I also changed the cooling supply to a be quiet! - Pure Rock Slim 35.1 CFM CPU Cooler because I was told that you need a good cooling system to overclock with this card? I am going to my this my final build *hopefully* so any other suggestions before I start ordering pieces? https://pcpartpicker.com/user/shanearcaro/saved/tpXLD3

  8. Case is fine mate .
    You honestly don't need the cooler , the stock one is as good as that.
