I use this machine for schoolwork and some casual gaming. I chose to go Ryzen for this build because at this price point, Ryzen seemed to be the best bang for the buck. Originally I had the Ryzen 5 1500x in mind, but I was able to get a 1600 with more cores for the same price. I am looking to overclock this processor. Also, I want to add more rgb bling to this build, any rgb kit suggestions would be awesome! Another thing I will be needing some suggestions on is a monitor. Currently, I have a 17 inch dell monitor from 2008, the only way I was able to hook it up to my pc was through a vga to hdmi converter. I want to get a new monitor for under $200 with a decent refresh rate and with a 24 or 27 inch screen size. Of course it will have to be 1080p! I had no problems with this build and I will surely be building more systems in the future.
