I first got my own "gaming PC" (it was a prebuilt) on December 25th, 2017. (I came up with the name since I grew up with it for 2 years.) I got it for Christmas when I was 11. I am 13 now. I bought the new PC parts for my birthday since I needed them. The prebuilt had an FX 6300 and 2x4GB 1600MHz RAM. I upgraded the CPU, motherboard and RAM. I'm reusing the case, PSU, GPU and HDD. This new PC's difference to my old one is like night and day. I didn't realize that just changing to a whole new chipset would make a big difference. I swapped out the parts myself and the first time I booted it up to see if I get a post, all the RGB lights came on and I had a post. I felt like I accomplished something big.
What part(s) should I upgrade next? (Budget for the upgrade is 250$)
Speechless. I use it for streaming, rendering, recording, editing, gaming and it's amazing! Happy with my choice!
Awesome motherboard! Looks beautiful and has a bios I love! I read that it has great overclocking capabilities so I will be planning on overclocking my 2700X when I get a better cooler for it.
It looks awesome, only think that I didn't like too much about it was that it arrived at a frequency of 2133MHz. I found out how to fix it and that was to activate XMP which is called D.O.C.P when you use an ASUS motherboard. It went to 3000MHz and it's fine now. The RGB on it looks beautiful too. Only from a distance (~10 feet) or in pictures, you can see the hot spots.
Great HDD! But planning on upgrading the full SSD. But for now, it's great!
It's a slow GPU but not super slow. I'm planning on upgrading it too. But what should I upgrade it too? Suggestions? Budget is under about 250$. Off topic but this GPU is kind of old so it makes sense. It came with my prebuilt so I'm reusing it, for now.
Nice looking case, a lot of spots for an SSD. Also has great additions to make cable management easier for you such as included velcro strips.
Wattage is fine for me but I hate ketchup and mustard cables and it having no efficiency. Planning on upgrading it too but what to? Suggestions?
