Hi everyone,

My friend has a very old PC. He finally decided to build a new one, I made this build for him. I was wondering if you can please comment if its good or if you would change anything?

He does 1080p gaming, mostly MOBA's. He wants this PC to last a few years before needing to upgrade. I didn't add a CPU cooler because I don't think he'll need it, will that be ok?


Thanks in advance for the help!

better processor , more powerful video card , ddr5 memory , Z board for future upgrades (if needed) . 2tb m.2

you can squeeze in even more powerful video card (radeon 6700xt) with few adjustments and compromises .

on AM4 platform you would not be able to upgrade in the future , best gaming cpu for that platform is 5800x 3d and thats it .
LGA1700 is not ideal either (intel will move to another socket for 14th gen CPUs)
but on Z790 motherboard (with better cpu cooler) you can still get yourself something like i7 13700K(F) .
the best for the future would be AM5 but it is also the most expensive platform out of all 3 at the moment .
