We need to know your budget and gaming goals like 60 fps, 1080p etc

I know building your first one is scary... But's only because you are under the assumption that these parts are extremely delicate and the process is difficult. Once you build your first one the fear will go and with enough builds under your belt you will realise that unless you literally break something or a item is faulty there is really nothing you can do to damage the parts and that putting it together is very simple.

I suggest looking at as many YouTube video's as possible till you feel confident enough to build one and then order parts.

I would go with the following if I had a $1400 budget.

  • CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 3700X 3.6 GHz 8-Core Processor $329.00 $329.00
  • CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 RGB Black Edition 57.3 CFM CPU Cooler
  • Motherboard: Gigabyte X570 GAMING X ATX AM4 Motherboard
  • Memory: Team Dark Pro 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3200 Memory
  • Storage: Western Digital Black NVMe 1 TB M.2-2280 NVME Solid State Drive
  • Video Card: Sapphire Radeon RX 5700 XT 8 GB PULSE Video Card
  • Case: Cooler Master MasterBox MB511 RGB ATX Mid Tower Case
  • Power Supply: EVGA G5 650 W 80+ Gold Certified Fully Modular ATX Power Supply
