This is a special combo Newegg is offering, but it forms a fantastic baseline for your build: AMD’s Ryzen CPU made waves a couple months back when it released, being a first great competitor to Intel in a while as Intel has been resting on its laurels a bit. The GIGABYTE motherboard it comes bundled with ensures CPU/Mobo compatibility — a worry for first time builders, no matter how careful you are researching parts — and has all the standards you’re looking for. A solid combo, a good price, and new CPUs aren’t expecting any time soon from either of the big companies.
