Well after i stopped being a computer enthusiast in 2014 when i bought my dream pc, i got to the point where i had to sell it which was so heartbreaking cause it was like my little baby and now I'm in desperate need of a gaming pc again but unfortunately i can't go out of €500 but that's just for a base a start and then I'll keep adding on to it every month or 2

I would like for it to be intel/nvidia and i don't know much now about the latest updates but i don't want an I3 and preferably an RTX just take it out of the calculation cause that is what I'm gonna be adding later on

I'm just asking for the best base possible to build on to

Thanks.

Where are you located, specifically? What's available for 500EUR in one area may not be available in another EU country.

What are you looking to do with the system?

On a budget, Ryzen is worth considering - but if you're adamantly sticking with Intel, you're probably going to have to forgo a GPU initially. Anything you can get in a 500EUR budget probably isn't worthwhile if you plan on upgrading to an RTX anytime soon.
The problem there though, would be the CPU to buy. For the <500EUR budget for the base, I'd be inclined to look to an i5-9400F, but there's no iGP.

In The Hague, Netherlands and I'll be mainly gaming.

And I'm just putting 500eur as start till maybe 600 700 all that without a GPU which I'll be considering maybe a 2060 and close on 1k.

Could you perhaps show me a ryzen build if you think that a ryzen build would be better for the price I'm going for and an "in the budget maybe a little out of it😂" intel build?

Honestly, I don't see any viable Intel route at that pricepoint.

For a Ryzen offering:

4c/8t, has an iGP so you could at least play a little bit. Drop any GPU up to a 2060 and you should be fine.

You can have an i3-8100 within the budget, but barely - and you wouldn't be playing anything on Intel's iGP really....

I managed to do this on Alternate.nl
What do you think just 50eur over budget but worth it i guess, just a shitty mobo and if i remove or go for a lower CPU cooler it would be less.
I skipped the SSD cause i already have two harddrives laying around so i thought that i should skip a 100eur SSD.

Poor balance of components, really.

The H310 is a budget chipset, the 9600K is an unlocked CPU. They'd 'work', but it's a poor pairing.

Same deal though, if you want to be able to game in the meantime, you're going to struggle with the iGP from Intel. Ryzen, specifically a Ryzen-based APU seems like the way to go here.

Yea i honestly knew that but just skipped the thought.

Well i could swap it for an MSI Z390-A Pro and I'm honestly looking for a base not something to start gaming right away on that's why i went with the I5 cause after pairing it up with a 2060 and slap in an SSD this will be beasty enough.

How about i up the budget max to 700 and ask again?😂
