I am building my new PC (everything new) and most probably will go a R5 1600+ GTX 1050 Ti setup. Depending on the price, I might go for the upcoming R5 2400G. As I sort out all the internals, I am really clueless on picking out a good case and PSU. I have allocated about RM400-RM500 for both components. At that price, what will be a good combo if I want a smaller case (I plan to get mATX mobo) while keeping everything quiet?

EDIT: I will opt for a Silverstone Strider Essential 500W PSU. Now all that's left is the case.

A 450W 80 plus PSU is sufficient for GTX 1050 TI. Go for 500 - 600W 80 plus PSU if you want future proof.
Fancy casing are just cosmetic. Just get the cheapest casing that fit your motherboard and case fan.

Btw, R5 2400G is an APU with build in graphic. Since you already have a GTX 1050 TI, it seem abit redundant.

I don't have anything yet. I am waiting for 2400G to release before I make my decision. In any case, the iGPU in 2400G should allow me to play some games while I gather more fund for a proper GPU in the future.

Is there any particular reason that the PSU has to be 80+?

I don't think Vega 11 on the 2400G is better than GTX 1050/1050TI in term of gpu performance.

youre predicting a budget for a future hardware thats not proven.

the best way is to setup the whole budget instead of parts if youre opting for a full rig. that way you can make adjustments once the actual price of other parts fall in/out of range.

I know that Vega 11 is probably at GTX1030 level but it will save me spending at least RM700 on a GPU. That's my rational.

I will opt for a Silverstone Strider Essential 500W PSU. Now all that's left is the case.

I play Civ 6 and Cities Skylines. The Vega 11, if can perform at 1030 level, should be enough to run them smoothly at medium, if not high, setting.

Maximum is RM5,000, but will try to keep it around RM4,000. I plan to spend about 1k on a monitor+keyboard etc., so I will have only about RM3,000-4,000 to work with.

RM 4K i think you can get a R5 1600 and GTX 1050TI, good for 1080p gaming.
