    You not thought about doing the GPU first and then the cpu/mobo later? I don't know much about the FX series but I imagine it holds you back less than the 1050.

    Edit: Although I guess I get it what with the current GPU market and all that, however long that lasts.

    I surpass the minimal requirements when it comes to pubg but I feel other games lag because of my GPU, I mean according to GD my cpu is above recommended

    You giving me ideas haha. Will have to give it a try and if it does crash, will give me just another reason to order more RAM :hehe:

    When I was building the system, it started as a budget build...so I was planning on GTX1060 the most...then after tons of youtube videos I figured I might go for GTX1070 and invest in a 1440p monitor later on....Here I am now sitting with a £550 GTX1080 just because I was itching for the "almost best".... I mean the graphics card costs half of my other parts put together :D But let me tell you, totally worth it!

    If I was you I would probably look into upgrading graphics card first instead of Mobo/CPU.

    To be fair you already specced it yourself:) You got the idea of components you need now find best price and purchase:)
    I found it to be just another fun part, hunt and find parts. But to be fair I ordered Ryzen 1600 and B350 ROG Strix motherboard from Ebuyer at 10pm and had it delivered next day for 2 quid) it was click and collect and was at the place at 9am!
    Safe to say I used their website for most part cause I wanted them ASAP when I decided what i need. Just the case I had to buy from a different website)
    Also PSU I won on ebay, 750watt modular Corsair PSU for 30 quid, looks like new...cant go wrong haha

    Good luck and have fun;)

    P.S - I did want to build a budget system but instead it took slightly longer and now the system can run pretty much everything, totally worth it!) All new with warranty apart from PSU..where a budget system or a cheaper second hand system you will always doubt and count push it to levels you want to)
    I think its worth slightly saving or taking longer but going for better hardware)
