I'm hoping to get this PC build started soon, do you have any suggestions that may be beneficial for this build? I hope to stick around the 1k-1.1k USD mark for my budget. I would intend to use this for Roblox, Apex Legends, Minecraft, and YouTube. I would like to have WIFI on my board and 1 TB of storage at least, if you could find any defects or upgrades that would be useful, please let me know!
That looks perfectly fine to me. Don't know about Apex but it a 6600 will play minecraft blazing fast.
I heard the 6600 would play Apex at 140-200 FPS. Thanks for the comment!
That card should have no issues with Apex.
Is that motherboard able to connect to USB type C? My case needs it and when I put it in PCpartpicker is said that it was incompatible with that motherboard.
It does not. In the motherboards category, on the left is all the things to search for. Go down to the section labelled "USB 3.1" and select "USB 3.2 Gen 2", that will filter motherboards that have USB C.
In the motherboard specs details, there needs to be this entry under "internal connectors":
INTERNAL I/O & CONNECTORS
2 x USB 2.0 Headers (4 Ports)
1 x USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A Header (2 Ports)
1 x USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-A Header (1 Port) <<< THIS RIGHT HERE IS USB C FOR CASE FRONT PANEL!
Is the 1 x USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-A Header (1 Port) supposed to be type-c or actually type A, as you said its for USB C, not A. I believe that the sort feature is only sorting from the back panel ports as it is the only one I see with the USB 3.2 type-A headers. Do you have any recommended boards that might fit into my price range?
Strictly speaking it's really called "e-key" so yeah the names are totally confusing. In Microcenter's specs list, it needs to be that one I noted above. Internal connection, "3.2 Gen 2 Type-A Header"
I know that's the right listing because I copied that from the motherboard I bought and it has one header that goes to USB C on the case front panel.
I don't believe that there is a 3.2 Gen 2 Type-A Header, I only see 3.2 Gen 1 Type-C 1 Port. Do you have a recommended motherboard I should buy? If not, is there any header "changers" or adapters that I could use to get those 3.2 Gen 2 Type-A Headers?
I had to get one of these for a prior motherboard: https://a.co/d/hKyRTHi
I can't find them on MC website, not sure if they even carry such a thing.
I do believe it is the type-c as when I put it into pcpartpicker with all the same specs + the case, it says it is all compatible with the chance of it not being able to do a BIOS flash. Here’s the link: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/zn2W6r
well you can find out when you get it
Your build look like it should handle Apex at 1080p with no problem.
