Hello,

I am building a budget pc and I would like someone to double check that the parts I have picked all work together, I am fairly sure they do I just want a second opinion. Here is the part list: https://au.pcpartpicker.com/list/TRCJwz

Thanks
Incredibly odd part selection.... Why are you choosing 2800mhz cl17 ram that's $100? you can literally pay half the price for better ram, and your processor could easily take 3200mhz. And why are you picking a $60 1tb barracuda when you can get the 2tb version for $50? And why the kingston a400? You have an m.2 slot and can get the same amount of storage with the same price with an m.2 nvme drive that'd be WAAAAAY faster. I have that ssd and I'm no where near impressed with it. And why does your ryzen 5 3600 cost $300? that's an atrocious price. I'd get something like a ryzen 5 2600 or just wait for new ryzen processors. and WHY did you choose a 1650 that's $250? You can literally get a 1660s for less. and whhhyy are you paying so much for such a simple psu? I made a part list way better than that for under $700 including a headset. Are our prices different? At least for me the price appears as over $1000 for a very meh system considering the price.

I switched up a few of the parts for better ones. It is $2 cheaper than what you had. In the end it is up to you but I just added my opinion.

That makes significantly moooore sense. I'd still try going with faster ram. https://pcpartpicker.com/user/PrinceTexasLoaf/saved/#view=XnVVwP
is this build cheaper than yours? I noticed when I convert the m.2 in that build to AUD it's the same price as the a400 with more storage and more speed. The ram is about 5 AUD more expensive and 400mhz faster with better timings as well. The ryzen processor you picked people say can handle 3600mhz ram. Converting my build I made on there to AUD it ends up costing 907 AUD. Of course not considering whether or not your prices are higher or lower than me.

That build is $1094.84 AUD in Australia and thats not including the ram as it is unavailable in aus.

Well they are 100% compatible... And I only want suggest to use better SSD.. like Samsung Evo 860 or better..

Otherwise everything is good..

Even that SSD isn't that bad.. but spending little to get better is I think better.
