Hi all,

About a year ago I had my PC build with this forum's help, and it is perfect. That is why I want to ask for your help again.

I want to have a PC built for my sister, she would use it for drawing and designing. She does use the internet a lot, watches videos, movies and copies files a lot, too. She plays games like The Sims 4 and Minecraft, so the PC has to be able to handle that smoothly. She is interested in newer games, too, like My Time At Portia.

The budget is 650-700 € (210.000-230.000 HUF), it can be slightly above but only if it is really necessary.

My requirements are:
  • Crucial 500GB MX500 CT500MX500SSD4 M.2 SSD (or maybe a cheaper, equally good remplacement if there is one)
  • Also a 1-2TB hard drive (maybe Seagate 2TB 64MB ST2000VX008 ? It is barely more expensive than a 1TB version)
  • 16 GB RAM
  • I would think a better motherboard and processor is much more important than a higher end video card. Preferably the video card still has to be at least decent
  • Decent cooling
  • Corsair 550W CX550M maybe?
  • Basic DVD reader/writer
  • Computer case can be cheap, if it works it does not matter
This has to be a complete, reliable PC, so if I left anything important out, please also include that. If my requirements do not fit in the budges, I am open to suggestions.

Thank you in advance for your help!

For things like SIMS4 and Minecraft and that other game that looks to not need a lot of power you can do without a video card and use one of the new Ryzen CPUs with Vega graphics, the 5 2400G is on sale now for $100 https://www.amazon.com/AMD-Ryzen-Processor-Radeon-Graphics/dp/B079D8FD28

AM 4 motherboard GIGABYTE B450M DS3H

DDR4 RAM (will be fine with 8 gb) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0157UPYZ8/ref=sspa_dk_detail_4?psc=1&pd_rd_i=B0157UPYZ8&pd_rd_w=TAZq2&pf_rd_p=8a8f3917-7900-4ce8-ad90-adf0d53c0985&pd_rd_wg=8amP6&pf_rd_r=8CMFP9JQ8ZB3DC8KGS5C&pd_rd_r=7ab76bd7-a8a2-11e9-bd85-01c75db0a092 <-- huge discount on this, then whatever case you want and the drive/power supply.

I see, thanks for the suggestion! How much can the Vega graphics handle? Would it run something like the Witcher 3 for example? What is its limit?
