RAM: AData Gammix D10 DDR4

HDD: WD Blue 1TB 7200RPM

For the storage in this build I chose the WD Blue 1TB hard drive, with 1000GB of capacity for all of your Steam games it has more than enough storage! An SSD is a recommended upgrade later on, with the motherboard also supporting super fast M.2 SSD drives!

For the graphics card I chose ASUS ‘ INSANE RX 580 with 8GB of GDDR5 V-RAM! This STRIX cooler, from the ASUS ROG (Republic of Gamers) line works great, with a factory overclock, cool, efficient operation and RGB on board! The GPU requires just an 8pin (6+2pin) GPU power cable and is very power efficient!
