    Hey nicknufc,

    Please can you tell me what your build consists of? (Specs)

    I would suggest since your new to PC building that you use a website in which you can build a PC. It tells you if all parts are compatible and they can also build it for you. PCSpecialist are a good place to start

  6. [CPU- AMD Ryzen 5 1600
    Motherboard- MSI B350 Mate ATX AM4
    RAM- Corsair - Vengeance LPX 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR4-2133 Memory
    Storage- Western Digital - Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive
    GPU- Gigabyte - Radeon RX 580 8GB Gaming 8G Video Card
    Case- Corsair - 100R ATX Mid Tower Case

    Case Fans- Cooler Master - R4-S2S-124K-GP 44.7 CFM 120mm Fans
  7. Get faster ram. Ryzen benefits greatly from faster ram. I'd get atleast DDR4 3000 and look at the motherboards QVL list to minimize the chances of problems.

    Get a better PSU the VS is the worst PSU Corsair offers and are not reliable.

    Not a fan of MSI's lower end pc mate boards and you can get a Asus Prime board cheaper.

    An RX 580 is going to be hard to find thanks to etherium miners, you may have to go for a 6Gb GTX 1060 instead.

  8. Thanks for that would this be able to run current games at decent settings and the reason went for a rx 580 is because I looked up and said it was slightly better overall and wouldn't need an upgrade for like 3 years.
    Thanks

    The difference between thew 580 and the 1060 is very small and depends on the game, some games run better on one vs the other.
  10. ok thanks what do you mean it's hard to find like there is ones on Amazon for the rx 580 is it something else you mean about it being hard to find

    RX580 is a favored card for bitcoin mining.
    As such, they have been snapped up and prices are high.

    Add to that, they are a bit power hungry compared to a similarly performing GTX1060.
    Think 550w vs. 450w:

  12. Ok thanks I think I will go with the 1060 then and also how do I get internet to the pc do you have to buy something to plug into the motherboard or can I just plug my Ethernet cable straight into Ethernet slot
  13. Usually just using a network cable from the router to the system works just fine. The only reason you'd have to buy something is if you want to go wireless.
  14. ok thanks I have tp link adapters all over the house that plug into socket and then Ethernet cable from there to pc so that should work

    I would get faster ram. From what I have been hearing ryzen benefits greatly from using faster ram and faster ram doesn't cost much more. The DDR4 3000 in the list I posted is only 5 quid more than that 2133 in your list.
