Greetings!

These two computers are within my budget. I already have a 500GB hard drive, and a GTX 950 card that I can add at home...

They are:


PICHAU GAMER COMPUTER, RYZEN 3 3200G, 8GB DDR4, SSD 240GB, 400W, MAGPIE 2

PICHAU GAMER COMPUTER, RYZEN 3 3200G, 8GB DDR4, SSD 120GB, 400W, TGT STRYKER

From what I saw, the biggest difference between them would be the motherboard, the case, and the amount of Gb in the SSD.


My old computer broke down (FX6300, 2x8GB RAM, GTX 950, 500GB, no SSD), and I used it to play League of Legends and Monster Hunter World, and also for video editions.



Could anyone help me with the pro and cons of each setup so I can decide which one I should stick with? Appreciate!

Will offer two initial comments:

1) You do not want a 120 GB SSD. 240 GB minimum.

2) A 400 Watt PSU may be too little.

How do you plan to use the computer? Just gaming?

Consider the listed games that you wish to play.

Check the recommended game hardware specs and compare to the builds you have chosen.

What to do - go to the following link:

Take a closer look at your requirements and budget.

Thank you very much for your comment.

Someone on another forum helped me aswell, and gave me an advite to try to buy some peices that were on sale. I said that I have no experience installing source and motherboard, but he sad its easy if I follow a tutorial on YT or forums.

So, I have a:

Corsair 600W
Geforce GTX950

And he told me to get isntead that two builds, these hardwares:

Gigabyte GA-AB350M-DS3H V2, AMD AM4, mATX, DDR4

Memória Rise Mode Diamond 16GB, 3000MHz, DDR4, CL15, Preto - RM-D4-16G-3000D

Processador AMD Ryzen 5 1600, Cache 19MB, 3.2GHz (3.6GHz Max Turbo), AM4 -

SSD Lexar NS100, 128GB, SATA, Leitura 520MB/s - LNS100-128RBNA


Those would be slightly cheaper, and have more power than the ones I linked before.

Since you said 128 is too litle, I could get a 256GB one instead for an extra R$56 (about 9,83USD)

What would yo say?

Get the larger SSD.

As for the recommended components - look for individual reviews and evaluations.

Doing so will help you understand more about the components, what they do, and how all will eventually work together within your build. Or maybe not work.....

Also, since you are new to assembling a build you should go beyond YouTube and Forums.

There are some really bad tutorials and "how-to's" out there. Watch a few and you will probably get a sense of the situation fairly quickly.

Starter links from within this Forum:

https://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/how-to-build-a-pc,5867.html

https://www.tomshardware.com/features/buy-or-build-gaming-pc

Read the applicable User Guides/Manuals for each component and use the Motherboard's User Guide as the main document.

Plan the build step by step as you read and learn.

Write down what you plan to do and in what order.

Pay close attention to notes and fine print. If something does not fit do not force or make some modification. Figure out what is wrong.

Keep a clean well lit and organized work space. Have the proper tools beforehand.

Do not stay up all night trying to rush through it all. Gets easy to make mistakes and they can be expensive ones.

Do you know anyone who could help you? A knowledgeable family member or friend? May be a bit more difficult with "social distancing" and quarantines. Still having some on hand guidance or oversight could save you from a mistake.
