Description

Makes no sense and was put together from parts I found at discounted prices.(Not sure if they're is a bottleneck as I only have a 60hz 1080p monitor atm)

Motherboard, CPU and ram were all a bundly from a local seller. Had a bent pin on the USB 3.0 header; which I wasn't that bothered about using so knocked down the price a bit.

SSD was the last thing I purchased. I need to buy a secondary SSD, which I'll do with my next payday. Only just started the whole PC gaming thing, so yeah.

2070 Super was a trade and probably one of the only deals I'll ever find in my area.

Case was a warehouse deal as like new, although it's in white rather than black. Super difficult to work in because of cable length with a micro atx motherboard but most of my computer parts seems to be cooled properly with the 2 included fans.

Corsair power supply was re-used from an old fx system someone gave me. It was used for a bit of animation and web browsing.

In all honestly, it's an ugly build but it was cheaper than I expected considering I haven't done this thing before.

That is a weird but also cool 2070 Super! Good find!

Ah, I honestly don't get what they were going for with the single RGB strip down the front and logos plastered all over it. I think they designed it around being mounted vertically with an extension cable? I literally have no idea.

nice build, next upgrade would be the monitor to 144hz, then the motherboard.

Yeah was looking at upgrading my monitor. Looks like the cheapest 4k monitors are 144hz VA panel; so I might go for one of those.

Motherboard is a confusing topic. X570 boards have loads in terms of functionality but are bloody expensive. Literally have no idea for an upgrade on that path but I guess I'll figure it out later. Thanks.

Well your build would last around 4 years to be honest, considering you have a 2070 super which is a good 1440p card, by then in 4 years time they could be x770.

You said the motherboard and cpu came together. Did you have to mess with the BIOS at all, or was it all good to go when you got it?
