Hey. This is my first time building a pc, so I wondered if all i put together will work.
And will i be able to run most game on full settings.
Case, fans and cpu cooler already bought on offer.
It's not a rush to build it, will wait to get parts on offer.
Is there anything i could get that is better for about the same price?
Also need tips for SSD for the windows
This computer is for my gf she likes lights and shiny things so keep that in mind if any replacement suggestions :p

SSD: What should i use? been looking at. Samsung MZ-V7S250BW 970 EVO Plus 250 GB Solid State Drive. And: WD Black SN750 High-Performance NVMe Internal Gaming SSD, 250 GB. One of those ok or any other?

Also i guess i have to buy a seperate CPU thermal paste?

Thankful for all answers and advises :)

It'll work, but I have a few questions.

- Is an AMD build an option? It feels a bit like a flashback to 2004, but if I'm building right now, I'm using a Ryzen 3000 series CPU over an Intel unless the use for the PC is only gaming (and not streaming or making videos from that gaming).

- Do you need 32 GB of RAM? I have at least 32 GB of RAM in both my every day desktops but that's because of my penchant for opening very large relational databases. If she's only gaming and the cost of having 32 GB instead of 16 GB is preventing the upgrade of a different part, it may not be an ideal solution. And if she's not only gaming, then back to the first question, I'd strongly urge a Ryzen 3000 build right now!

- I'm not crazy about hybrid hard drives. Generally speaking, if the difference between a hybrid and a normal hard drive matters, then you probably want to be using a solid state drive in that application. And if the difference between a hybrid and a normal hard drive doesn't matter, then you can get more storage for the buck with a normal hard drive.
