Hi . I would like to build a cheap desktop pc that I could upgrade during the following years. I have over 700€ to spend. I choose the following peaces : -Intel Core i3-8100 -Motherboard ATX MSI Z370 PC PRO -Power Supply Corsair CX450M Semi Modular -8GB DDR4 2400Mhz Ballistix Sport -Asus GTX 1050Ti Expedition 4GB -SSD 2.5 Kingston A400 240GB TLC SATA From your(users) experience, what would you change on the built and remember that it needs to have a Intel Z370 chip because of the compatibility with the MotherBoard.

Did you buy all this already?

 

Because if you did there is very little to upgrade

 

Sure a core i5 or i7 will be in your future and manybe another GPU but right now if thats what you have... it will be fine for a bit.

I decided to gather more information on forums before buying it :P ... Should I go for the normal motherboards that support a normal i5-7400 (example) or should I stay with the "MOTHERBOARD MSI Z370 PC PRO" so that I can upgrade to other 8Gen CPU? And for the monitor witch one should I buy.... I was thinking on buying a " BenQ GL2250 TN 21.5" FHD 16:9 60Hz" over 109€ . (The price of the monitor dosen´t influence on the 700€ from the custom pc peaces).

Okay double confirming, did you already buy the motherboard?

 

Because if you did i can make suggestions

 

Otherwise you may want to go AMD instead, the Ryzen platform murders everything performance for dollar.

 

If you didnt get the parts yet you may wish to go AMD instead.

 

Right now AMD is really good for its value

I didn´t buy anything yet :P .... 

I´ve got preconception about AMD CPU´S and GPU´S .... I have many friend who say that AMD overheats allot, despite having a better performance. This means it will have less durability. He might be wrong. If so, witch CPU or GPU of AMD you recommend? :s ....

With AMD's ryzen is actually very good at temps.

Sure previous gebnerations of AMD have had heat issues but they are not so bad on AMD's ryzen platform.

As for GPU suggestions... whatever is affordable as right now GPU's are very overpriced and you may wish to wait a month before committing as the issue will be the same even if you went intel

Video card prices are insane so better to go with something that doesn't break budget.

 

However, AMD is launching new APU's quite soon. There should be very affordable CPU+video card combo. That's worth considering.
