Description

So I've finally updated not only my computer, but also bought a new monitor. I'm coming from an HD6770 and a Phenom II X6 1090t. Some ancient HP prebuilt from 8-9 years ago.

Goal with this build was 144hz/1440p + freesync so that's why I'm going all AMD. Budget was about a grand excluding the monitor.

Part Reviews

CPU

No further description needed. Amazing price, amazing performance. Stock cooler is great.

Motherboard

Great little board. Does everything it's advertised to do. Only problem is the lack of fan headers and slightly bad SATA port placement. Otherwise perfect.

Memory

Smoking fast and good looking B-die ram. Got it for $200.

Storage

Blazing fast and a great price, form factor, and look.

Video Card

Absolute unit of a card. Great performance.

Case

Awesome aesthetic case. Checks off all major points in terms of compactness, flexibility and customization. The magnetic filters are prone to warping during transport, and feel a little flimsy but it's fine otherwise. Great airflow and fits all my parts!

Power Supply

Beautiful power supply. High quality, includes amazing looking heat-shrunk and sleeved cables. A++

Case Fan

Beautiful, quiet, good price. High airflow. Literally 0 noise.

is this good for 144fps on call of duty 4? or should I just wait until 7nm ryzen in 2019 :l

Matt_bot submitter 1 Build 1 point 4 months ago

Should be, but waiting is always better.

Nice build. Did your MOBO take the ryzen 5 2600 or did you need a boot kit for it..?

Matt_bot submitter 1 Build 1 point 4 months ago

Yes! And no I did not.
