I'm looking to build my first gaming PC and I know a little bit about PC and what each part does, and I have a few friends that know stuff too about them and have been helping me out as well. I currently have a laptop I got for engineering which is a powerful workstation, and its awesome for gaming, but now I want to build a PC dedicated to gaming and just want to change things up a little. I don't have a specific case that I want to use yet, but don't want to spend more than $50 on one. Another thing is that the game I will most likely be playing most is Rainbow 6 Siege, but will definitely be opening my options further down the road as I move away from console gaming.
My parts list that I have compiled so far is as follows:
AMD Ryzen 5 2600 Processor ($140 on Newegg)
Gigabyte AB350M-DS3H AM4 MicroATX Motherboard ($75 on Newegg)
Asus PRIME B350M-A/CSM Micro ATX AM4 Motherboard($78 on Amazon)
OLOy WarHawk 16GB (2x8GB) 288-Pin DDR4 RAM ($65 on Newegg)
MSI Radeon RX 580 Gaming X 8gb 256-bit Gddr5 PCI Express 3 ($81 on eBay)
SAMSUNG 970 EVO M.2 2280 1TB PCIe Gen3. X4, NVMe 1.3 64L V-NAND 3-bit MLC Internal Solid State Drive ($170 on Newegg)
WD Blue 1TB PC Hard Drive - 7200 RPM Class, SATA 6 Gb/s, 64 MB Cache, 3.5" ($46 on Amazon)
Corsair TXM Gold 650 W 80+ Gold Certified Semi-modular ATX Power Supply ($95 on Newegg)
My current parts list if this link works: https://pcpartpicker.com/user/Jeepfreco/saved/#view=RRDf99
That's all I have so far, and wanted to see what the professional PC building community thought about my list so far and if there is anything that I need. If there are any cases that anyone recommends that works for a MicroATX and looks cool for $50, let me know!
Also, I am not sure, but what would I need for accessing wifi once I build the PC? Or is it already built into some of the hardware?
If you guys have suggestions about parts that are similar quality as what I have listed but are cheaper to get, then post it! I do want great quality if there is a chance to save money on that part.
