Help with first pc build (slight budget)

Hi guys,

I´m quite new to the whole pc gaming thing. And as such I would like som opinions on a build I came across at https://elitegamingcomputers.com/good-cheap-gaming-computers/. It is the 600 dollar build. Is it a good build to get into pc gaming? For your convinience I also created the build at pcpartpicker, link below.

I would say that the current price for it is around what I want to pay for, but I could go a bit higher if deemed necessary. For example, if I should get a SSD and/or upgrade the graphics to 1060 3gb.

Thanks for all answers.

  1. The ram you picked is no longer available. Pretty decent build, can handle medium-high setting in many games. What games do you play?

    I´ll change the RAM then. I´m planning on playing games like cs:go and Pubg mostly. (fine with medium graphics)

    Your case has poor ventilation, this has 3 fans included. 1600 is much better and has 6 cores.

  4. You can also try Ryzen 1200 + GTX 1060 6gb for best gaming. Ryzen 1600 is better for the long run and can pair with any GTX GPU later on.
