I need some help with my first PC build

Hey everyone, as the title says, I was collecting parts to build for my PC and I had a question. So I was initially thinking of going with a Ryzen 3 1200 with a GTX 1050 TI, but after playing around with the parts list a little, I realized that I can get a Ryzen 5 1400 if I downgrade my GPU to a 1050 only. I was mainly planning on using this PC as a place to watch movies, and play e-sports games like LoL. I'm also gonna use it for school/office work (Microsoft word, and stuff) . So what do you guys think? 1050 TI with a ryzen 1200 or 1050 with a ryzen 1400 for only $20 more?

Here's a parts list if you need it: 1400 w/ 1050:
1200 with 1050 TI:

  1. Between the two, 1200 with 1050ti is better. No real upgrade from 1200 to 1400, you will need 1600 to see real difference :)

  2. I didn't think that the 1060 is a good choice for me, mainly because it seems like overkill for games like LoL, and because it seems super overpriced right now.

    You can downgrade to 1050 ti if you like. But do get a better PSU like mine. Upgrade 1200 to 1300X will help you OC easier :)
