Ryzen AMD Build with Red/Black/white color scheme. So far only games I've played on this is GTA 5 and Skyrim with no mods on ultra 1080p. I'll post bench mark specs soon. This build is consider a budget Ryzen gaming build nothing more or less. Using stock cooler and is not that bad!

Ryzen 5 Fallen $700 Build

Here The Ryzen 5 Fallen is a budget gaming build. This build is for intermediate level builders! It wasn't hard to come to the conclusion that the Ryzen 5 1500x CPU was the perfect price/performance per dollar amount. Giving you 4 true cores running off base clock speed of 3.5Ghz which is not including OC. The price upon purchasing the CPU was 179.99 off Newegg at the time of purchase.

Now of course backing the CPU would be the MSI - GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 4GB Video Card. This choice for a budget build GPU was probably the best choice to go with at the time of purchase. Most of the higher end cards would have cost $200+. Considering the options and availability I had to go with this card.

Now for the memory the Ryzen 5 Fallen will be well equipped with G.SKILL Ripjaws V Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 2400 . Being that two stick was around $50 online this was something that could not be missed!

Onward to where everything is connected to we decided to go with a non- OC motherboard. The MSI - A320M GAMING PRO Micro ATX AM4 Motherboard was about the only board online that was going to fall under our budget build with price of $69 bucks it was a steal! Now of course we will be missing out on crossfire/sli and OC features on this board which is a negative, this board will still provide performance needed for our budget intermediate build.

Besides that.. one thing we had to look at is the storage. I decided to get a Seagate - FireCuda 500GB 2.5" 5400RPM Hybrid Internal Hard Drive I understand that nowadays its best to bite the bullet on a SSD, but as a gamer and considering budget build we decided to go with lesser route with more storage capabilities. Eventually this could be update to SSD when size per GB/$ goes down.

Now for the power! We went for a cheaper PSU but also a bronze certified PSU. The CORSAIR CX-M Series CX550M 550W 80 PLUS BRONZE was perfect for only $54 and being semi modular you cant beat the price.

For the red and black theme we're putting all the hardware listed into a Phanteks Eclipse P400S BR Silent Edition Black/Red Tempered Glass/Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case. For being only $89 this was our best option. Being this is a red and black theme build this case is perfect. Including RBG lighting already pre-installed in the case and cable management is quite the bonus for the Ryzen build.

So feel free to comment on this build! I will post pictures on the final results! Please comment on what you think could be changed for this budget build under $700. Thank you!

The price with taxes is over $700, but that is including the operating system! YES IM INCLUDING THE OPERATING SYSTEM IN THE BUILD COST!

honestly i don't think you should add the OS price to the build. you can get the inactivated windows 10 for free, then just buy the windows 10 key whenever you can down the road. spend the extra money on more powerful hardware, like a b350 mobo for overclocking, or a ryzen 1600 instead (only £20 more than 1500x). but that's just some of my points, spend your money how you like

EDIT: sorry!, i didn't realise you are american, the 1600 is $20 more then the 1500x

Was the drive from an older build?

AgentMartin submitter 2 Builds 1 point 20 months ago

Negative completely new. ill eventually put a SSD in the build.

Maver 1 point 20 months ago

I am super interested in this build can you give me and SSD to get? Also is the Caviar blue a good replacement for the storage you listed?

AgentMartin submitter 2 Builds 1 point 20 months ago

Yes you could go with a standard blue caviar drive HDD. I went with Hybrid SSD/HDD drive from seagate. Really depends on your budget if you want a SSD Kingston v300 are really good Drives. You can get 120GB one for $59.99 but you'll need a decent storage drive for a main data drive.

Cpu cooler? Desktop and keyboard mouse, will put this to 800.

AgentMartin submitter 2 Builds 1 point 20 months ago

The price is excluding any peripherals. The cooler is the stock AMD wraith stealth. Which so far has kept everything around 30c! I'm amazed how well amd provided a well built cooler for budget builders.

Dzeg 1 point 20 months ago

Wait they provide stock coolers? Why doesn’t t say so when picking it out? Does the Ryzen 1600 do the same?

AgentMartin submitter 2 Builds 1 point 20 months ago

Yes the 1600 comes with the wraith stealth. Depends on the CPU you purchase. I know all t he parts on here was purchase through newegg. Here is a link that might help you with which cpu comes with the cooler. Enjoy :) https://lanoc.org/review/cooling/7488-ryzen-stock-coolers
