One of my colleague asked to build a pc for him. For CPU I choose Ryzen R5 1600.


1)For MBO I am thinking between these:

Asrock b350 pro 4 (ATX version, I read that microatx version has some problems with freezing lately, atx should be free of that) - 84€, Asus B350 strix and MSI B350 carbon - both around 120€. I am leaning towards carbon because it has best VRM of b350 (leave a possibility to upgrade in future for 8c ryzen) and better audio.

2) For Ram I think that 1x8gb 2666mhz will be enough? I have heard that only one stick of RAM can be crippling on Ryzen. True?

3) R5 1600 comes with a good stock cooler? I will OC it to max 3.6.

4) Advice on some 24" and 27" freesync monitor that is not TN. Something decent and good.

5) For GPU: RX 560 (161€) or 1050Ti (200€)? How much is RX 560 faster that 7770? I have 7770.

6) SSD: WD green Sata or M.2 - 120GB-240GB is good and stable?

The Crucial MX500 is about the cheapest SSD out there
As for a monitor you are not going to find many monitors smaller then 27 inch with an IPS or VA panel

The Asus MG279Q is an option but its not a cheap monitor

Uff that Asus is too way expensive. I was thinking something like Samsung LS27F350 or Benq EW2775ZH. They are both same price but I don`t know how will he react to slow VA panel (in some cases slow color transition) in games, so I prefer PLS/IPS for him.

Is WD green (I read that it doesn`t have cache!?) faster than Kingston HyperX Fury (I have that, satisfied 100%)? To fit the budget he will buy 1 ssd 120gb and 1TB WD blue (10ezex) - he needs space. 240gb+ SSD are out of the budget.

I tried to look MX300 but can`t find any 120gb version...

I've been using this monitor for a few months now and really like it. It goes on sale from time to time as well. I picked mine up for $140 at microcenter.

This article has both the 7770 and rx560 included.
That monitor has 6ms response time? I was thinking to buy something like Samsung LS27F350. Same price like that Dell.

Since 1050Ti is faster some 25% I think it is the better option. Some medium settings in AAA games.

I don't really think anyone would notice the 2ms response time difference. I do however think they would notice the 75hz vs 60hz. Just my 2 cents.

1080P is too small a resolution for a 27 inch monitor as the pixel density becomes too low
Everything will look stretched out and ugly

Either move up to a 1440P resolution monitor or get a smaller sized 1080P monitor
By the way while TN panels are worse then IPS/PLS panel monitors they are not as bad as they used to be

I know that some VA panel with 5ms has ghosting problem. It not for me so I won`t risk it.

I have 27" 1080p, seems good to me. Picture is not pixelated. 1440p is not an option with this budget and probably 1050Ti gpu.


Is Fortron Raider II 650w a decent good psu? Before couple of years I had Fortron S raider 750W, no complaints.

Other options for PSU in that price range:

- 700W FSP Fortron/Source Hyper
- 600W FSP Fortron/Source Hyper M
- Fortron 700W, Hydro
- Fortron Hyper M85+ 650W

None of those are worth buying
If you want something cheap but decent buy a Corsair CX450M/CX550M

600-700 watts is massive overkill

I know it is overkill but I want to leave a place for future upgrades. What wrong with Raider II 650W? DC-DC regulation, japanese capacitors,....

The dell isn't a VA panel.
I know that, I compared to VA because VA panel usually have ghosting high becasue high response time and this monitor have high response time even for VA standard.

There no reviews of the Raider II so i wont recommend anything i dont know
As for wattage unless you have plans for SLI or Crossfire you will never need that much wattage

450-550 watt is more than enough power for a system with a single GPU unless you have an X299 or X399 setup
