    Hello
    It's my first time building a computer so i don't really know what im doing, i only learned something from tech videos. I would appreciate if someone would look at this and tell me if it will function together, and if i could improve it. Btw i would like to know if i could run decent games on the listed computer monitor. (my budget is around 1000)

    1. I would get faster ram, like 3200mhz and just enable xmp profile in bios.
    2. Get a bigger SSD like a 250, you'll run out of room on the 120 fairly quick.
    3. You'll eventually need to get 16gb of ram total, most likely. If you can only afford 8gb right now then only get a 1x8 gb stick and then get another matching stick later.

    About the monitor, I'm not really sure.

    I would go for Ryzen R5 2600/ 2600X instead.

    PSU - seasonic better quality than EVGA 600B

    The monitor is fine, that 1070ti will be able to power it.

    There's an unbeatable combo deal on Newegg right now that includes the Ryzen 5 2600 and a 120GB SSD for $189.99.

    https://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.3823073

    I personally use a 120GB SSD and have no issues with storage.

    If you're strictly gaming, I would get rid of the aftermarket cooler. It won't be needed.


    Just to throw this out there, if you're strictly gaming at 60FPS, the Intel i3-8100 is significantly cheaper than the more expensive Ryzen 5 2600, and is just as competitive in the majority of games, even keeping up with the significantly more expensive Ryzen 7 chips.

    The savings would enable to you to buy a much higher quality Samsung EVO 250GB SSD, and also if you wanted, to upgrade to 16GB of RAM and be just at $1000.
    This build would also be below your $1000 budget:
