Question Component Advise - Help me building my gaming pc

May 27, 2020
Good evening everyone, I would like to have some advice on the components to buy for a 450/500 € gaming PC!
I already have a :
case: Sharkoon s25-w
power supply: Corsair cx 450
hard disk: Western digital blue 1tb
monitor: asus 1920 x 1080 60hz

I would use the pc simply to play videogames like league, cod etc.. but I don't care too much about high details etc... Im fine with 30/60 fps!
P.s i'm from italy so I'd like to buy everything from amazon italy if possible

Depending on your local pricing, perhaps look in a Ryzen 3 3300x (or even R5 3600), a B450 motherboard, 16gb 3200Mhz RAM, and an RX 570.

Maybe something like:

Motherboard: MSI B450M-A PRO MAX Micro ATX AM4 Motherboard (€71.12 @ Amazon Italia)
Memory: Corsair Vengeance LPX 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3200 CL16 Memory (€95.99 @ Amazon Italia)

You could drop the CPU to a Ryzen 3 3300x or the motherboard to a compatible A320 one but I would probably try to keep those components as they are, given the relatively small price differences.

Also, be careful about buying on "Amazon". Buying items that are sold by Amazon themselves is fine, but buying from a marketplace seller / third party seller can sometimes cause issues for warranty claims. If you want to use Amazon but do not stock your components, maybe or .de do. Or somewhere like Alternate.
