Hi guys,

I am new to the PC gaming world and I am planning on building my first rig soon. I was wondering if you guys can give me some general tips on choosing parts, I am planning on spending around 1500- 2000 on it as I don't want to go all out on my first build.

So from my limited knowledge thus far I have come up with this:
Case: Corsair 270R
CPU: Intel i5 7500 Kabylake 3.4 ghz 6mb (is this enough)?
Mobo: need help with this, i was thinking maybe a h270 as i have no intention of overclocking or using dual gpus, was thinking could save on the money by not getting a z270. Would a ASrock h270 fatality ddr4 suffice? socket matches with my cpu.
RAM: how much ram would i need? 8GB,16GB, 32GB? lol guessing not 32GB
Cooler: Was thinking just an aftermarket air cooler, a cooler master hyper 212 dual fan. Sufficient?
PSU: How much power do I need?

GPU: Have no idea, but wanna spend a reasonable chunk here



I think if i can get some help with those for now it will be awesome, then i can figure out the rest. Thanks guys. I am new so thats the best i could do if you guys can give better parts or make it cheaper with a similar result, or just any advice. Mainly going to be playing cs go but would be nice if it can play general games at a decent level.

Cheers

The Corsair 270R will be fine.
And the i5 7500.
And a h270 mobo. See www.pcauthority.com.au/Review/456926,rev...nce-motherboard.aspx - looks good
Ram - get a 2x4gb kit as recommended by your mobo. See the mobo webpage, SUPPORT, Memory QVL - to get the exact kit that has been tested as OK.
The CM Hyper 212 would be OK for an i5 7500. So would a Cryorig H5. They should both be short enough to fit in your case (see case spec).
The PSU needed is largely dependent on the GPU you want. You don't need much for CSGO. Get a good make eg Seasonic G 550. It'll work with GPUs up to a gtx1080. You can check what you need for CSGO here - www.game-debate.com/games/index.php?g_id...20Global%20Offensive

I hope this helps a bit.

Performance and cost then power consumption and noise and temps.

Any idea of your GPU budget?

What monitor and resolution are you using?

See www.tomshardware.com/reviews/best-gpus,4380.html

Newegg has a good pick list - www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?...r=PRICED&PageSize=36 Looks like you can get a 1070 or a 1060 - www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?...r=PRICED&PageSize=36

Either would be fine. A 1060 would be ideal for 1080p monitor. A 1070 would be OK with 1440p too.
