Description

After completing my first ever build for myself, I decided to help out my friend who wanted a PC aswell.

He always played games on hix XBOX One, but one day he suddenly came to me saying that he really wants to try playing CSGO. He told me his max budget for the PC would be 700€, so I ruled out the idea of getting him a pre-built one. Ever since he switched from XBOX to PC he hasnt thought about ever going back. Hes loving the PC-Masterrace™ so far and im only happy for him.

Only problems I had while building was that Amazon didnt deliver his GPU on time and he had to install it himself after I did the rest. It was a pain in the *** to tell a person who doesnt know how to build a PC over Skype that hes installing the GPU wrong xD.

His budget was 700€ so I had to try getting most parts as cheap as possible, told him a RX 580 would be good enough but he insisted on getting a more expensive RX 590 (I mean, its his money, not mine :P).

The PC has been running great so far and runs most games on high settings at ~70 FPS easily. His Monitor that he previously used for the XBOX was 70hz, so for now he doesnt need any upgrades.

Edit: People pointed out i shouldve put the RAM sticks in slots 1 and 3 instead of 1 and 2, will fix

you need to have ram on slots 1 and 3, slots 1 and 2 dont allow you to use both.

Thanks for telling me this, I didnt realize! It is using both sticks, I think its just slower than if it would be in the right dual channel config. Will tell my friend to fix this

you probably should've gone with a power supply with some different cables, unless the one you went with was a spare part.

I hate to point it out, but even @Jucie_Boodie is wrong, it goes in slot A2 and B2 which is the 2 and fourth slot. It's kind of complicated why, but it has something to do with the motherboard traces. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3vQwGGbW1AE&t=1619s is a great video about the memory layout on different motherboard's and I'm betting you your motherboard uses daisy chain. Point is, is that you want it in the 2nd and 4th slot, not the 1st and 3rd.

Something I forgot to add is yes would COULD probably do 1st and 3rd slot, but it is more common to put it in the 2nd and 3rd slot, and thats what most motherboard manufacturers build their motherboards around. On my build, I have the Gigabyte Aorus Master Z390 and if you put two DIMMs into the 1st and 3rd slot the motherboard on boot will come up with a message saying that it is not optimized to be in those slots. Please do not listen to the other people, the 2nd and 4th slot will be better. Now yes chances are A1 and B1 will probably be fine but I have seen motherboards the will literally not boot if they are in A1 and A3, so it's your choice just letting you know.

You might want to fix the cable management. Also, please take more photos.

Didnt have much time to build the PC over at my friends place, so cable management is kind of a mess

It still works that way you just will lose performance due to not utilizing the dual channel feature
