I'm helping my friend build a gaming desktop from scratch, our budget is 1200$ or below. With that money we need a monitor & keyboard too.
 
Were in Denmark, so please don't send links to discount on American sites. We have to pay 25% extra on all parts, so maybe keep the price around 900-1000 dollars.
 
I've actually found a computer build by Shark Gaming that is just within our budget, here are the specs, tell me what you think (please tell me if I should consider building it myself with some other parts):
 
Monitor: ASUS VP228T 21.5" LCD
Keyboard: Ozone Blade
Cabinet: Corsair Carbide Series 100R
Processor: Intel Core i5-7400 3.0 GHz 
Motherboard: ASUS H110M-A/M.2
Graphics card: MSI GeForce® GTX 1050 Ti AERO ITX 4G OC
RAM: G.Skill Ripjaws V 8GB (2x4GB) 2133Mhz DDR4
PSU: Corsair VS450
Network card: ASUS PCE-N15 300Mbit Wireless PCI-E
Storage: Samsung SSD 850 EVO 250GB
Cooler (processor): Intel Stock Køler
OS: Windows 10 Home - 64 bit Engelsk
Extras: AntivirusKaspersky Internet Security - 3 Months + SharkGaming Bonus-pack
 
 
Moved from Computer gaming to system building.

Do you turn up all the eye candy in games?  Here are a few things to keep in mind with this build.

 

IF you turn everything up on visual settings and you play recent games, the GTX 1050 may not be the best choice.  An RX 580 may be a better choice.  It performs between a GTX 1060 and the GTX 1070.

 

16GB would be nice to have, especially with high-end gaming.

 

Windows 10 Pro offers more features in that you can push back updates further than with Home.  Windows Updates are usually stable, but there are the occasional updates that cause problems.

 

If the computer seems a little too noisy, consider replacing the stock cooler on the CPU with an aftermarket one.  You'll want to do this anyway if you are overclocking.

Monitor, while FullHD, is very small. Also other parts are less than optimal so I suggest you build your own computer.

 

Can you out any link to shop where you can buy parts? I can select much better ones.

Well he wants it to be fast, and he doesn't play heavy games - mostly CS:GO (Moderate computers can play it on full settings)

I think the computer I found is okay (not really), if you think I can build something better/cheaper come with a suggestion - please keep in mind how expensive parts can be in Denmark.

100USD = ~650DKK

Budget = ~8000DKK

www.fcomputer.dk

www.computersalg.dk

www.pricerunner.dk   -   On Pricerunner you can search for almost anything in the top, and find some of the best deals on danish sites

Or any other site that sells parts, with the domain ".dk" (Or ships without drastic charges)

 

Keep in mind that you should try to keep as many parts on as few different websites since danish shipping prices are insane

Computersalg.dk offers free shipping on any order over 500DKK

ALSO remember that he needs a cabinet, monitor, keyboard & OS (Preferred: Windows 10 Home - 64 bit English)

 

Thanks!

-Anton

You can also use english sites like newegg or something, just remember to leave a ~150-200$ gap from the 1200$ budget, as you will not find the parts that cheap in Denmark

I'd take DDR4-2400 RAM, price difference is negligible vs 2133.

Samsung Evo is TLC drive and I always recommend MLC over TLC. Also Samsung 840 and 840 Evo TLC drives were very problematic, so I consider that A-data better. To put it shortly: http://techreport.com/review/27824/crucial-bx100-and-mx200-solid-state-drives-reviewed/7

Given the issues plaguing some of Samsung's TLC-based SSDs, I'd take the MX200 over any EVO right now.


MX200 on that quote can be replaced with almost any MLC drive.

Other than that, looks good.

Thanks! My friend doesn't want to change it from the 850 EVO, since it's the one I have and he really likes my computer.

What will I need when building the computer? I'm guessing a box of screwdrivers and some zip ties?

Also, will I have to buy SATA-cables etc. or will these come with the parts?

I have ordered some ESD gloves, to prevent electromagnetic discharge

Thanks again!

-Anton :)

Screwdrivers, zip ties, some screws perhaps. Boards usually come with 2 or 4 SATA cables. ESD gloves highly recommended.

Okay, thanks!
So, will this build be able to run anything good? I've never worked with anything else than Intel and GeForce..
So I don't know how powerful these Ryzen and Radeons are...

Generally: Ryzen is somewhat equal to Intel, just cheaper. Radeon is equal to GeForce, just cheaper.

GPU is not ultra fast but also not expensive, you get what you pay for.

Okay, I'm just about to send the list of parts of to my friend, does the case usually come with fans or do I need to buy those?
