    Can be improved, grab a 1060.
    Mobo is also overpriced slightly.
    @OP, spend a bit more and get a 1060 and this case.
    The system below performs 75% better in games.
    What's your budget for monitor/mouse/KB? I'll recommend some.

    Please don't take his advice.
    @elbert, don't recommend such a thing, not technically legal.
    Reply to Chugalug_
  5. LOL unactived windows is totally legal. How is it not? Microst allows else the would end the free trail. You just dont know what your talking about.
    Reply to elbert
  6. Edit: Thought you were recommending using an invalid license, not the restricted version, forgot you could do that, mb.
    Reply to Chugalug_
  7. Its a free trail so totally legal.
    Reply to elbert
  8. Yeah, see above.
    Forgot that was a thing, a proper license should be bought though, not worth shunting the budget sideways, should be included.
    Reply to Chugalug_
  9. The OP should try it first. With Ryzen windows 7 is stilll an option.

    Thank you for the response Chugalug!

    Love the recommendations!

    Budget for monitor, mouse, and keyboard is probably around $300 total. I want to get back into PC gaming at a high level.

    Any other recommendations would be awesome!

    Just wanted to ask if this build supports a dual monitor set up also?

    Thank you for all your help!
    Reply to Atnguyen528
  15. Sure does! :)
    If going dual monitor get a 1080p 60Hz monitor, not a second 144hz one.
    Have you bought anything yet?
    I can update the list if you'd like based on new prices.

    I am actually working on making my first purchases soon as I had to do the responsible thing and take care of some other obligations haha. oh nice thank you for looking out!

    I set all the parts on PC part picker and have been getting emails!

    Any recommendations on what to purchase first? A friend told me to buy the graphics card last as prices are kind of high now?
    Reply to Atnguyen528
  17. I'd actually say get the GPU ASAP, prices are about to spike due to recent shortages, and there's a great deal on a 1060 3GB atm. Then the monitor, preferably as soon as you can too! $169 is a crazy deal.

    Thank you Man! I am about to make my first few purchases! Super stoked to get back into PC gaming, it's literally been since high school when all I needed was a decent GPU and 1 gig of RAM to function LOL

  19. I am almost done getting the remaining parts!

    Just need memory and power supply.

    The prices have changed a little and just wanted to check if you recommend anything else or what is on this list is still good for the price it is at now.

    Thank you again for all your help!

  20. The power supply is the same price so you are good there. The memory tho has all went though the roof. I suggest you get the fastest stock RAM 2666 for the system. Here is the best price I could find.

    Also, random but I wanted to make the color scheme of my computer to be blue.

    Would this case be okay for my current build?

  22. Sure the case supports the Gigabyte motherboard's ATX size and supports upto a 420mm long video card. The video card in your build is only 173mm so it has more than enough space. The stock wraith spire is only about 54mm in height while the case supports upto a 157mm cooler. I see no problems with any of your parts fitting. It should work great and has room to grow as your needs increase.

  26. This one is a bit higher price but can handle more powerful cards later. The extra 75w on this unit is enough to handle up to a 1080.
