    I've ordered the parts for my new PC, and they're on their way! To be clear, I'm "building" a pc, but I can't build it on my own, so a friend is going to come over and help me. Tell me what you guys think about it, and what I should upgrade next to get better performance. I'll link the case and the parts below!

    Case:
    [​IMG]

    Specifications:

    Processor:
    AMD Ryzen 5 1400 3.2 GHz

    GPU:
    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti

    Memory:
    16 GB DDR4 2400

    PS:
    600W 80+

    Storage:
    WD 1TB HDD 7200 RPM & 256 GB SDD

    Really excited for this to come in, and I'm REALLY going to love gaming on something other than my crappy laptop.

    So my friend that is going to help me build the PC is giving me a board. I don't really know what it is, but he picked out the parts and case to fit the motherboard. I'll update the OP when he texts me back!

    and @lotionhands I only really play League of Legends/Overwatch. I have a really crappy laptop right now so ANYTHING is an improvement. I might get into some other games when the PC comes in.

    1050 Ti is plenty enough for those games
    To be honest, you can even play PUBG if you overclock the 1050 Ti
    Motherboard upgrade doesn't really work without a CPU upgrade. You first go with the CPU and match the motherboard for the CPU, then the RAM for the motherboard.
    The only use of upgrading only motherboard is if you don't have enough RAM slots or PCI-E slots and are in need of more RAM/GPU

    Maybe wait till the Intel+AMD chip is released? Or just get an AMD A series if you wish to do gaming on laptop

    I'd recommend the 1500/x, its like $30 more but it's worth it.
