Question Building a PC

Jan 1, 2021
Hey what's up? Happy New Year!
So am planning to build a PC but don't know which one is better, so i made a thread to see your opinions!

PC Build 1:

Mother Board: MSI H410M A-PRO LGA1200 DDR4 2933MHz
Processor: Intel Core i3-10100F Comet Lake Quad 3.6GHz
Ram Memory: 8GB DDR4 2666MHz Kingston HyperX Fury Black CL16
Graphic Card: MSI GeForce GTX 1650 SUPER VENTUS XS 4GB GDDR6
Power Supply: PSU 450W Gigabyte P450B Real Power, 80Plus Bronze
Hard Disk: 3.5" 1TB Toshiba P300 SATA3 7200rpm 64MB
SSD Disk: 2.5" Kingston A400 Series 240GB 7mm
Case: Haven't decided yet, but that's not important.

PC Build 2: (All components are the same from Build 1, expect the motherboard, CPU and GPU)

Motherboard: Gigabyte B450M-H AM4 DDR4 3600MHz
Processor: AMD Ryzen 3 3100 Quad-Core 3.6GHz
Graphic Card: Well which one of those should i choose?
Sapphire AMD PULSE Radeon RX 5500 XT 4GB GDDR6 OC
Radeon RX 570 ARMOR 8GB GDDR5 OC

As you see it's a budget PC, and enough good to play 1080p games , also i don't want to spend more.
So which one should i go for? Also how much energy/power does both PCs use on full load 1080p gaming?

To be honest? I'm rocking an I3 10100F paired with a GTX 1660S, and I couldn't ask for anything else, apart from the fact that I get stuttering, but that's because I have a single channel 8gb ram kit. I'd go for PC build 1, but you should look into replacing that 1650 with an RX 580 8gb, if you have the budget, I think the prices are similiar. I'm quite sure the 580 performs better, AMD's budget GPU's are way better.


I'd Personally put the ryzen 3100 above that i3 because it has Multithreading whereas the i3 is a straight 4 core with none.

That said they perform virtually identically for gaming.

The ryzen has a better upgrade path imo though I think personally.

The 1650 super is the best choice out of those cards easily.

You really need 16gb of ram nowadays for gaming, try and get a 2 x 8gb kit from the off into the budget even if it means changing things round slightly.

Powr usage, you're going to max out around 220w with any/either combination of those parts.

Not mad on the gigabyte psu but it's enough and at least it isn't a death trap.
