So here is the thing.

My budget is 1100 EUR.

I wanted to build a pc arround GTX 1070 TI and Ryzen 5 3600 or 3600x or 3700x, not sure yet.

I 've found used GTX 1070 ASUS ROG STRIX GTX 1070ti 8GB DDR5 or MSI one. They are close in price, which one I should buy, MSI or ASUS?

This graphic card will cost me 265e.

So thats 835e left in budget.

RAM should be atleast 3200 MHZ.

Also when you order all of these parts, how do you actually build it, is it easy? Or maybe I will just pay someone to do it for me,

thx for help guys
 
"They are close in price, which one I should buy, MSI or ASUS? "

I have nothing bad to say about MSI....but I have had great luck with ASUS GPUs, displays and motherboards. I would go with ASUS.

"Also when you order all of these parts, how do you actually build it, is it easy? "

It's not hard if you go slow and make sure you know what you are doing before you do anything.

The biggest mistakes I see people make is they rush....or they do something wrong because they didn't know what they were doing.

Plenty of how-to videos online to help with building a system. Best advice I could give would be before you do anything else, read the motherboard manual cover to cover. Then read it again; this time with your other components in hand (but don't install anything yet). Just get a feel for where everything goes. Then watch a video or ten on building computers.

As @jay32267 states, there is no rush. Take your time and don't force anything. Most components will just click in place without a fuss. Some might take a bit of pressure (I seem to always have issue with the 20-4 pin main power).

As for the rest of your build, I'd probably use something like this (using Germany PC Part Picker).

I forgot to mention that I will need only 240 SSD and that's it.

I dont need any other storage.

Maybe I should get better grapchis card for this extra 100e which will save me from buying HDD?

Also I dont need fancy Case. I will need normal looking one...

Thank you a lot for responses guys!!!!

Also for example, what if I want to get 1080 TI instead, or Rtx 2070, or for example different RAM, can someone explain me do I have to change motherboard in that case? Also what do I need to look for on Motherboard?

I dont understand when to build specific motherboard.

Is motherboard-cpu highly connected? Or with ram? or GPU?

Swapped out the storage and went with a better motherboard. The case is a fairly basic one that still provided sufficient cooling options.

Ok bro, I did maths and I have 200 EUR left.

I will buy this
MSI B450 Tomahawk Max AM4 Ryzen
because its cheaper.

So now I wonder what I do with 200 EUR left, probably new GPU?

Keep it. A 400€ RTX 2060/350€ GTX 1660Ti isn't worth the cost over 265€ GTX 1070Ti (assuming it's in good working condition). Better yet, use the money saved to buy some pizzas and beer and have some friends come over for a PC Building Party (save the pizza for AFTER the PC is built).

Thanks man!

You know what I was thinking, I was checking arround and I see 3600 and 3600x aint big difference in gaming. People say if I am video editor I should go for 3600x, but for gaming it aint worth, and it will save me additional 120euro I think, so what is your opinion on that?

As a light gamer, I'm perfectly happy with my Ryzen 5 2600. I don't need stutter free/constant eleven-billionty FPS. You gave a budget and I provided a build I thought was best, regardless of your intended usage. If you want to go lower than that, it's entirely up to you, but I'll reiterate. I've already given you what I feel is the best build for your budget.
