I'm building a cheap gaming rig for my buddy's daughter and I'd like to get some feedback on what I've chosen. If any part is poor performance or if anyone can suggest a better/cheaper alternative I'd appreciate any comments you can give.
I've got a few parts I dug out of my parts bin to help save on costs. I'd prefer not to have to replace these, but I'll welcome any comments regardless:
Nzxt Beta Evo Gaming Case with 6 120mm fans
Nzxt 600W 2.0 PSU
Western Digital 1TB 5400RPM SATA II 32MB
Western Digital 750GB 7200RPM SATA II 32MB
What I'm thinking about adding is these:
AMD Ryzen 3 1300X Desktop Processor with Wraith Stealth Cooler - $174 CDN from Amazon - Link
Corsair Vengeance LPX 8GB DDR4 DRAM 2400MHz C16 Memory Kit - $96 CDN from Amazon - Link
Gigabyte Geforce GTX 1050 Ti 4GB Graphic Card - $200 CDN from Amazon - Link
MSI Gaming AMD Ryzen B350 DDR4 VR Ready HDMI USB 3 ATX Motherboard - $ $118 CDN from Amazon - Link
I know an SSD is a good idea but my buddy is trying to keep the cost down. If anyone has suggestions on a good cheap SSD I'd be happy to hear them, maybe I can talk him around.
This isn't really part of the build, but since I'm posting anyway, I'm looking for a good lefty (or ambidextrous) gaming mouse. I'm using the SteelSeries Sensei Raw right now and I'm not really happy with it. Anyone have any better suggestions?
Thanks in advance.
