So I need to do a complete build for a friend, including monitor, keyboard, wifi. I have a spare 1TB HDD I'm giving him for a secondary drive. This will not be overclocked at all. Budget is $1200 (would like to stay closer to $1100) and I only have a few things picked out so far. Ordered: Seasonic G550 PSU - $45 Phanteks Eclipse P400s - $59.99 Gigabyte AB350-Gaming3 - $65.74 eVGA GTX1060 6GB - $236.49 Still shopping for: 1600x ~$230 16GB DDR4 ~$150 Keyboard ~$50 AC Wifi ~35 500GB SSD ~140 27" 1080p Monitor ~$110 (staples black friday) CM 212 ~20 That puts my total around $1142. I have a couple things I keep going back and forth on. 1. Freesync. Getting a 1080p monitor, most come with freesync. GTX1060 6GB is a little cheaper than an RX580, but is it worth the extra to get freesync. The monitor will be 75hz so I'm not sure how much freesync matters at lower refresh rates. (I have never used a freesync/gsync monitor). 2. I'm pretty sure it will be a Ryzen 1600 or maybe 1600x build. I would consider Intel if the new chips weren't over MSRP. I think the only way I could get Intel in the budget is to get an i3-8350k and it would still be pushing it. I wish I knew about this build last week I could have picked up a combo and Microcenter when I was in Ohio. 3. I might be able to get a 1070 or Vega 56 but I would have to skimp on pretty much everything else. 2400mhz ram, really cheap motherboard, cheaper PSU, smaller SSD, etc. I've always got mid/high range stuff for myself so I'm not really sure about doing a build with bottom tier stuff to get a better graphics card.
