Help with $1500 gaming rig build
Hi guys, I'm looking to build a PC to play games such as CS:GO, and occasionally PUBG (heard the game is poorly optimised, so don't need to be on super good settings. just want to play for fun with my friends). Any comments on the following build for these purposes?
CPU+MOBO: AMD Ryzen 5 1600 + Gigabyte GA AB350M-Gaming 3 - $459
GPU: Galax GTX 1060 6GB Twin fan (Black) - $369
PSU: EVGA BV Series 500W Bronze - $89
SSD: Samsung Evo 850 250Gb - $149
HDD: W.D. 3.5" 1TB Blue 64mb - $70
RAM: Kingston 2400MHZ CL15 8GB - $139
Optic Drive: Asus 24x DVD-RW Sata OEM - $25
Casing: Fractal Design Focus Mini Window - $79
Case fan: NIDEC Gentle Typhoon 1850 RPM - $29
OS: Windows 10 Home Prem - $159
Would like to further reduce cost if possible. Have anyone bought windows 10 key from carousell? Not sure if it will get deactivated after a few months.
Edit: Also, I already have a monitor (Dell SE2417HG), though its only 60 hz refresh rate. Might look to upgrade it next time if I want to play more competitively, but for now should be okay for casual csgo and pubg right?
