That's a really tough ask including a monitor and peripherals with U.K prices. Obviously this is a bit over, you could drop the SSD or the HDD and add one later.

Also an option to move to an Intel G4560 based build like this.

You get a slightly better GPU but a overall worse platform. Although it does allow you to drop in an I5 or I7 at a later date and its almost bang on budget.

Thanks guys some great stuff to go off. I think we could lose the ssd and wireless card so the amd system should be great.

Nice, if youre going to drop the SSD and wireless Id try and squeeze a better GPU out of the savings if you can, even a 4GB 460 would help IMO, or something more older but more powerful used like an R9 380 if youre willing to go that route. GL anyway.

So I changed the GPU to a RX 480 and this is how the build looks:

 

The games to be played on this system are - BAttlegrounds, BF1, Siege, For honor, H1z1.  Would this system be ok for these games at 1080p? Anything I could put in to save some money on the rig cost?

Looks much better with a RX480. One thing, if you didn't know Ryzen is currently pretty finnicky with memory timings and running 'XMP' profiles because most of the kits out there are designed with Intel in mind. The Corsair kit in the list is not in the memory QVL, although the 32 GB version of it is, its listed only as qualified at 2133 MHZ. Ryzen scales well with memory bandwidth.

https://www.asus.com/us/Motherboards/PRIME-B350-PLUS/HelpDesk_QVL/

Might be worth checking the QVL for a kit that's on there and running a bit faster that still fits the budget. Or even asking around the Ryzen Motherboard thread to see if there's a better option for a budget board that will support a wider range of or just faster memory altogether. Gskill has the Fortis and Flare X kits that are supposed to be optimized for Ryzen but I couldnt find one that fits in the budget. redface.gif

low profile msi 1050ti ( needs to be this exact gpu to fit in that case, nothing else will work, it has a special bracket for this pc case so it will fit and it has super low power consumption which is important for oem pcs)

90 bucks


and if u want windows ten u can get it for 20 bucks on kinguin, but this pc comes with windows 7 already on it.

Eventually u may want to add a bigger hdd like the western digital blue 1tb
https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822235014&cm_re=western_digital_blue_1tb-_-22-235-014-_-Product
50 bucks

Soo. total cost

250 +118+72+28+90+50 = 608 usd.

however, youll need to hunt down these parts for your part of the country this is just to give u an idea.

Threw this together in five minues, shouldnt be hard to do the same thing in your area

I did this same exact build for my buddy. and he absolutely loves it, only spent 350 on his though, didnt need a monitor, or kb. Just depends on what deals u can find. I hopped into the game star citizen with it to test its limits and it ran fantastic, very smooth, played for a few hours before i gave it to him.
