I'm looking some hardware for my new budget productivity PC build. Here is the list of hardware I'm gonna use:
  • Thermaltake Versa N21 Case
  • Corsair VS Series VS550 PSU
  • Intel® CoreTM i5-6402P Processor, I would use AMD if it supports DDR4 RAM.
  • MSI Z170A Gaming M3 DDR4 Motherboard
  • Corsair 8GB DDR4 Vengeance LPX 2400Mhz RAM
  • Circle Stay Cool CG-12 120MM Red LED Case Fan
  • Samsung 750 EVO 120GB SSD Drive
  • ZOTAC GeForce GTX 750 Ti 2GB Graphics Card

So what do you think about this build? What can I change?

I'll start from the PSU or case! I'll buy parts one by one so maybe by that time Zen will be launched!

Excellent idea, those new Ryzen CPUs have a lot of processing power for the price. I'm on an old i7-2700k (still quite a good CPU really), but I think my next build will probably have a Ryzen in there, they're just so much cheaper.
