The new AMD Ryzen 5 3600 is the best candidate for this price range. This Ryzen 5 processor has definitely outclassed its Intel counterpart since the Ryzen 5 3600 performs better on tasks that utilizes multiple cores or, simply put, heavy productivity tasks while only being a bit behind in gaming. Besides, if you don’t have a high-end gpu and will only play games at [email protected], Intel’s advantage over AMD at gaming is basically non-existent.
The AMD Ryzen 5 3600 comes with a stock cooler and it does the job. Although not immediately nor necessary, we’d suggest investing for a decent cooler like the Deepcool Gammaxx 400. A CPU cooler will help preserve the CPU’s hardware quality specially in our country’s warm weather.
If you’re planning to overclock right away, you should invest on something a little more expensive like the Hyper 212 LED Turbo CPU Air Cooler or Cryorig H7.
The third generation Ryzen processors are initially shipped with the new X570 chipset, but we can still use the previous chipsets such as the B450 and X470 for the new Ryzen processors. Basically, we’d only suggest an X570 motherboard if we’re going to put a PCIe 4.0 SSD. For this build any B450 motherboard will do but make sure to ask the store a perform a BIOS update so they can support the latest Ryzen processors. MSI motherboards also offers a MAX version for some B450 motherboards that supports third generation Ryzen out of the box.
Ryzen builds benefit greatly with high frequency RAM (3200 MHz or more).
AMD‘s new RX 5700 offers great value for money as well in terms of performance, it’s better than the RTX 2060 and almost head to head with the improved RTX 2060 Super. So your decisions depends on whether you’ll be benefiting of Nvidia‘s Ray Tracing technology.
Storage – HDD
For the storage, we will simply get the most reliable HDD in the market, the Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB.
Storage – SSD
We recommend the Western Digital Caviar Green SSD 120GB SATA version and then reserve the M.2 slot for a more high performance SSD in the future.
The Seasonic M12II 520w is a reliable PSU for this build and we think it’s appropriate for this budget range to opt for a modular PSU.
As for the case, this should be entirely up to you. For this price range, we would suggest the Tecware Nexus M because it looks good, has USB 3.0 (pretty much a standard now in 2019), and it comes with three 120mm Tecware case fans, so you don’t have to worry too much about airflow.
For this price segment, though, if you can spend more on a PC case, you could checkout the Phanteks P300 TG.
These setups will be able to handle Grand Theft Auto V, Monster Hunter: World, Apex Legends, Fortnite, Dota 2, League of Legends, Overwatch, and CS:GO on max settings. You can play any of the recent titles like Far Cry New Dawn, Metro: Exodus or Battlefield V smoothly without any problems on 1440p or if you’re into competitive shooters, you’ll be able to utilize these builds when paired with a high refresh rate monitor. Casual streaming is also viable with these builds.
