***Budget Build Help Under $800***


Hello All,

I am looking for some help with putting this pc together. I have a list of items linked below, but I am open to other ideas as well. This computer would be for surfing the web, with ten tabs open at a time. We would be using programs like Microsoft Office mainly. It would be used for gaming a few times a month; mainly Warcraft, and Overwatch. I would like it to be able to run high-level 1080p, and low to mid-level 1440p. We would like to be able to do some photo editing in the future. I would like to keep the price of the tower and monitor to under 800 dollars if possible. I think my video card may be able to be downgraded to save some money. Let me know what you think.

Thank you

    Samsung 1 TB 980 Pro nVME SSD are only $79.99 in store right now, it is really worth upgrading from the slower SATA drive to this.

    your chosen motherboard is not compatible with your processor. You are missing an Operating System and a case.

    Yes the motherboard you are using is an LGA 1700 motherboard made for 12 and 13th gen intel CPU's, you woud need an AM4 board, generally on an ultra budget you would go for something like an A520 board, although good cheap B450 and B550 boards are available, like Vagnaza pointed out, you definitely should go for an NVME SSD as their just way faster, and i'd get the WD black SN770 1TB which is like 40-50 bucks on newegg which is awesome, Also for the CPU I think that a newer gen CPU like a Ryzen 5 5500 or even 5600 if that'll fit in the budget in, and as Shoan also pointed out - you'll need a case.
