Description

Well, honestly I only use it to play games and some light video editing at the moment. I'll be using it for schoolwork when the need arises.

Part Reviews

CPU

CPU: I would have opted for one of the Ryzen 5 series, but this CPU was the cheapest by a far margin; the 2600 was $220 and the i3 8100 was $180. This still provides great responsiveness and gaming performance only slightly behind mush more expensive options.

Motherboard

Mobo: It was one of the cheaper boards I managed to pick up. Works well with no problems.

Memory

RAM: I was budgeting very tightly, so I ended up opting for single channel RAM, as I can add more in the future when the need arises. The speed was overclocked to 2933mhz, could almost push 3000 with better timings or whatnot, I just left it at 2933.

Storage

HDD: Cheap, SSD can come later, works fine.

Video Card

GPU: I actually managed to pick this up for just $200, It runs all games I play at at least 80 fps for more demanding titles, but I have Radeon Chill on to regulate FPS, as my monitor is only 60hz.

Wireless Network Adapter

Wifi: I game about a floor away from my router, and this card can pull the 300mbps advertised speed with ease.

Custom

Case: I installed two rings st the front and one at the back, and the case has adequate space.

Any build that has the Sapphire NITRO+ is a +1 in my book. GPU goes with anything...maybe not those fans though but you can change that down the line. Good health to you and your new rig.

The fans actually look really good with the GPU, but for some reason my camera doesn't react well to the lights from the case fan. The red is darker and way less orange, and looks a lot cleaner.

quick question why do you have two mice do you stream?

Nah, I got the G502 as my first mouse before I got into FPS games, but it's way too heavy for that, so I got a G203 later on to play FPS. The G502 is for everything else.
