Hi there,

Newbie to PC building. I created this build on parts picker and am hoping someone could tell me what they think of it, how to improve it, if it will even work!? My budget is between $800-1000. I would like to be able to play recent AAA games at medium to high settings.

Here is the build:

Thanks for the time

First thing I would do is to get 2 sticks of 8gb ram to make it 16gb. Also, spending a little more to get faster ram and the ones in the support memory list for our board. Ryzen seems to work much better with faster ram.

PSU is garbage if for that build.
Have a look at the EVGA G3 550w
120GB SSD is small with OS taking upto 30GB + having 20gb empty space, leaves little.
Look at a min 250GB, best is 500GB with room to have your games on.
Ram you want to at least run 2 sticks, as this board is designed to work best with 2. MSI B350 2133 is fastest any more just do not work well.
Spend the $40 more and get the 1600 instead, long run would be a nicer CPU on a B350.
