So the recent encounter with some brand new PCs from my previous thread has inspired me to cook up something of my own (in a different shop where I got my last PC from)


CPU : Intel Core i5-12400F 2.50GHz LGA 1700 BOX
Coolers :
CPU :
COOLERMASTER Hyper 212 RGB BLACK
Case : MS FREEZE L220 Blue LED fan x2
GPU : ASUS DUAL RTX 3060-Ti 8GB DDR6
RAM : Kingston 16GB 3200MHz DDR4 RGB RENEGADE ADATA 16GB DDR5 5200Mhz XPG LANCER RGB (Correction)
SSD : SSD 500GB KIN NV2 PCIe M.2 2280 NVMe
MOTHERBOARD : GIGABYTE MB Z690 UD (DDR5 ver)
CASE : CAS MS FIGHTER S301 White
PSU : SEASONIC CORE GC-650 Gold, 650W

Im going a bit lighter on the CPU keeping in mind I have a pretty solid upgrade path thanks to the Z690 UD DDR5 to a i5 13600K in the future or maybe something even better.
The GPU I feel like suits my 1080p monitor for those gaming needs as I wont be playing in 1440p any time soon.
Theres a couple of options in terms of which brand to take for the 3060 Ti.
  • MSI RTX 3060 Ti Ventus 2X 8G OCV1(same price)
  • ASUS DUAL RTX 3060-Ti 8GB DDR6 (same price)
  • Gigabyte Gaming RTX 3060 Ti 8GB GDDR6 (25 bucks more than the other two)
If you could indulge me with one of these is better.

Anyways I'd like to know what your thoughts are, mainly is this a good PC build or not.
I'll be making a decision in the coming days to pull the trigger on this or not.

Thanks guys.

It looks like your going to try to use DDR4 memory on a DDR5 motherboard that will not work.

Like was pointed out the RAM won't work with that board. What is the cost for that PC?

Believe me I wish I was and I come from a hellhole called the Balkans in Europe.
Choices not really that amazing but let me give you some links.
- https://pcbest.olx.ba/
You can translate the page via google translate and search the categories for components.
If you can make some stuff that to you looks better go ahead.

Budget in KM would be about 2900KM.

Both of you feel free to search for the golden parts of my new build.

Is there any was possible that you could hop across the border and get your components from Serbia?

Consider that the shop that I sent is located in the Republic of Serbia(Its complicated its still in Bosnia) I would say their prices cost about the same.
For example i5 12600K is 710KM in the link you sent,the cheapest one,and here its 699,99KM.
Not gonna cap but pretty sure they get their components from Serbia anyways in this shop.

Any particular reason you'd want me to scale down on the Mobo?
Cuz if I do that I might as well go a little more elsewhere,such as a 3070.

Also you were searching in general there,here is where you search components in the shop Im buying from(the top search will lead you to the entire marketplace).
If you can make a list of all the components less than 2900KM Im all eyes!
