This will be my first actual pc , not going to go too crazy with it. But I just want something reliable for whatever game I wanna play.

Budget can be from $1k-$1500 if that's fine ? Lol

Games I mostly play are ( have a series X that I'm going to still use for like cod , but if I wanted to use tools for camos for myself I'll play on pc )
Cold war
ForzaH4
WoW, whenever I have the time
Gta
Maybe tarvok n CS.

& I don't feel comfortable with building my own yet, which sucks lol. Been watching videos about a place called redux has anyone heard of them?

Iono lol throw some ideas down for meh. Been 6+ years since I've touched a computer of my own. I have a laptop but she's on windows vista lmao


Thanks in advance!

At that budget i'd wait until you can get your hands on a 3070.

Pick one up close to retail & go with a 3600 / 5600 (depending on availability / cost).

Memory so long as its 2x 8gb @3200 you can be pretty flexible.

I think MBO you want to go with a b550 for 'future proofing'.

SSD / storage is completely up to you. I currently have a 500 M.2 and it does the job for me.

I do have a 2TB mechanical but its not used.

case - again, so long as everything fits its down to personal preference.

Good thing about the Ryzen CPU's is they come with a cooler and are much better value for money over anything Intel.

PSU I'd aim for 650/700W

I'll wack a parts list together for you based on retail prices so you can take a look on what may work best for you.

I'm getting rid of my NZXT "Streaming PC" build if you want to buy? Just got it September of 2019. Great condition, smoke free home. Well-kept, can play all the games you mentioned on highest or near-highest setting.

dude even if you don't feel comfortable building your own, please get a friend or a work colleague or someone to build it for you. Do not buy prebuilds. You get better performance for a fraction of the price that prebuilds charge you for their in house parts and labor fees.

If you don't know already, I recommend using PcPartPicker.com

This website will build your whole pc for you and show compatible parts only. Good luck! Only thing I would recommend is if you get a 360mm fan for your cpu liquid cooler you make sure your case has compatibility! Other than that, it shouldn't be too difficult. Youtube also has budget pc guides for full builds. I built my first pc at 18 and it scared me so badly, but after that first one, Ive built 3 more with ease. It just takes some getting used to.

Even on my latest build I built it completely right and it didnt "work" so I had to send it to a professional because Im not one, just a connisuer. I was sent a faulty motherboard which isn't necessarily uncommon, but best buy gave me a full replacement. Now a lot of real pc builders recommend Microcenter or newegg which I do as well, but I have a rewards program with best buy so when I spent 3 grand my on current pc I had over 100 extra dollars to spend on in store credit to buy some peripherals. Im not too sure that other websites offer the same, but I know for sure Best Buy does. Plus the closest micro center to me is 3 hours away and I didnt feel like driving to it when I could go to Best Buy which was only 50 minutes(I live in the middle of nowhere).

Good luck on your build! If you need any help you can pm me and Ill give you my discord and help you with further questions!
