i mean other then AMDs 3 game gift with graphics card, and division 2 give away with their CPUs; Nvidia gifting Anthem and BattleField V with graphics cards, and i think intel is gifting BO4 with specific CPUs i can't think of anything else. Focus on making your PC for price and performance not what games they gift (although if you are AMD is giving the best games with Resident Evil 2 and Devil May Cry)

AMD's integrated graphics, especially on their G series cards are the best in the market the Ryzen 5 2400G benchmarks the same as my 4 year old gaming laptop, which can run Witcher 3 at 1080p Medium settings

i know that EVGA is having a sale on their B Stock which might get you a cheaper PSU, but i don't know if that applies in europe (it's in the deals section of the forums)

550 Watts should be fine, you would only need more if your ganna do some more extreme overclocking don't fret about the ram you probly lost at most like 5-10 bucks not buying a combo; i will recommend getting a 1 TB hard drive whenever you can but in the mean while i recommend using something like https://github.com/ImminentFate/CompactGUI to compress games (it only works with windows 10) Next time post here before you build it everything so you don't have to go and order more things if you make a mistake :D

the CPU is pretty good and mother board is probly fine, and i have seen cheaper 750W PSU's but other then that i can't say much; he's going for style over performance (i personally would have gone with the fractal R6 and skip the custom cables). He can honestly get a 2070 with that budget considering most 1070 ti's that i see go for 400+ but the price is unlisted so he might already have one

also were do you see the wireless network adaptor on the case? or is it only shown on the seller's site?

Personally i've been looking at making something like this, although you really don't need 8 cores or an RTX 2060 for PUBG. You can probly get away with a 2600 and a GTX 1060 honestly

the H500 is an easy case to work with, the only complain you will get is that the front limits the air flow since it only takes air in through a slot on the side of the case. I know that the B450 Tomohawk is a decent Alternate B450 motherboard that is slightly cheaper but i have no experience with either of them honestly.

What he recommended is decent, you might need another case fan for the case but other then that it's fine. I would read up the reliability of the SSD he recommended.

this seems like a decent build; a PC that can consistently run 4K is well over 1,000 dollars, especially considering a good 4k monitor can run you like 400+ easily PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant

you can always overclock your monitor to a higher refresh rate, so you can probly get to 80 FPS easily (unless the screen comes overclocked from the company; which would be pretty sad since it's only 75 Hz)

I've heard that it is possible to upgrade older versions of windows to windows 10, but you would have to google that; you can always run windows 10 without a key albeit with a water mark, and no customization options while you find a reliable key

well that's probly true, but considering that the 8 GB model is maybe 10-15 dollars more, and will run higher resolutions better it's an option that should be considered

Test them hooked up to the motherboard, I've heard that fans can sound louder at lower rpm so check to see if the fan controller is on low, also check to see if the fans are tightened down and not shaking, and have no wires hitting them

I wouldn't know much about Plex but how CPU intensive it is depends entirely on what you use it for. I do know that the 2200 g is limited processor wise because its selling point is the integrated graphics, having more then 4 cores would definitely help more with multi tasking. But if your going to get a graphics card I would look at something like the Ryzen 5 2600 (which while already cheap, will probly get cheaper with the release of the 3000 series)

If your trying to make a server the limited thread count will be most likely cause some slow downs, I can't advice on Zen 2's Ryzen 3 vs current Ryzen 5 because all we have are rumors that may or may not be true. (so maybe wait on that upgrade until it's closer to the release date) I know that AMD prefers having DDR 3000+ Ram and while there is no massive disadvantage to have 4x4 GB ram having 2x8GB will let you have upgrade options later on if needed (not that anything other then video editing & dedicated servers requires more then 16 GB Ram)

AMD is better for upgrading because they actually support their motherboards, so if you get any current Ryzen motherboards they should work with Ryzen 3000 series with a bios upgrade. Intel usually requires you to buy a new motherboard every new chip series

70 C is actually pretty normal for something under large load; I kinda wanna know how you got your GTX 970 running under 70C with load
