Im kind of new to pc gaming.

I currently have a pre built gaming pc but id really like to save up and build my own. I like to play games I can't on my ps4 so mmos and multiplayer games like PUBG. I just need advise on where to start I was thinking of budget around 700$. What mother board should I get? Is a gtx 1060 good enough? What about a good tower that is spacious. What cpu should I get and are there decent brands for ram I'm going for 16 gb two 8s. Of course its good to know compatibility too. I just want a good gaming rig not top of the line but not crap I need something to hold me over when ps4 gets dull.

  1. Ideally, I will get Ryzen 1600, 16gb ram and 1060 6gb, but your budget can not afford all of them. I will get this:

  2. The cpu basically is an i3 not sure if that's going to run many games I don't mind pushing it to 800$ is like at least an i5 equivalent maybe i6 but I don't know if that's pushing it?

  3. Ryzen 3 is not equivalent to I3...
    for 800, go with Ryzen 1400 and GTX 1060 3gb then.

    Got to Tech deals or Pauls Hardware on Youtube and build your own. For another $300 bucks, you can build a system that destroys a PS4. Even a $700 PC blows PS4 away. I just built a i7 8700K system following their videos and everything worked perfectly. It was half of what Alienware would charge for a comparable system. Most of your time will spent researching/buying the correct components for your system. I built my PC and was playing PUBG in 5 hours.
