[SOLVED] Help with a good budget Ryzen Build for creative design and some low intensity gaming

Jun 8, 2020

So I'm planning on upgrading my PC (and old FM2+ build), and am wondering if anyone could help me figure out what my best options are component-wise.

Im planning on carrying over some parts from my current PC:

- A 450W Corsair PSU​
- and my recently purchased Sapphire Nitro RX 470 8gb​
- EDIT: Also carrying over my two 500gb SSDs.​

My budget is pretty small. around £200 at a stretch £230 ish.

I won't need to do anything too intense, but my priority is having a build that will allow me to edit relatively large Photoshop documents without stutter and lag (generally 2-4k resolution images with around 40 layers).

I also use dual monitors if that effects anything?

If the build would let me run COD Warzone at a smooth 72fps on low-mid settings that would be a plus too!

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
Fair enough.

Got any recommendations for a decent PSU then? Preferably cheap
PSU prices are pretty high right now due to lack of supply. This is the cheapest decent unit you can get...
