So that last time I built a computer was in 2006. I've wanted to build again for some time and I've finally gotten around to going for it. It took some convincing of my wife but she's open to it because I need something I can efficiently edit video and photos from trips. I've got a ton of video just sitting on hard drives and nothing to edit with.. I'd also like to do a little gaming on occasion.
So here's the list I've come up with so far:
$ 64.99 - Corsair Carbide Series SPEC-06 Tempered Glass RGB Mid-Tower ATX Case, White
$149.89 - ASUS Prime Z370-A II (Intel 9th Gen)
$158.99 - Intel Core i5-9400F Desktop Processor 6 Cores 4.1 GHz Turbo Without Graphics
$ 69.99 - DEEPCOOL Liquid AIO CPU Cooler, Captain 240 RGB, SYNC RGB
$184.99 - XFX Radeon RX 580 GTS XXX Edition 1386MHz OC+, 8GB GDDR5
$ 79.99 - Patriot Viper 4 Series Extreme Performance DDR4 16GB (2 X 8GB) 3200MHz Kit (PC4-25600)
$ 79.99 - EVGA SuperNOVA 550 G2, 80+ GOLD 550W, Fully Modular
$ 32.94 - SanDisk SSD PLUS 240GB Internal SSD
$ 49.98 - Western Digital RE4 2TB HDD
$108.00 - Microsoft Windows 10 Home - USB
$249.99 - Sceptre C325B-144R 32" 144Hz 1800R Curved AMD FreeSync Gaming Monitor
$1223 - Total from amazon. Prices fluctuate a little but I'm trying to keep it under $1300. I've got a MicroCenter close to home that I can build for about the same price too.
Any thoughts, criticisms, critiques? Does anyone know of any Memorial Day sales coming up?
