Description

This was my 3rd build. Haven't built one in over 10 years. Gaming rig used for Witcher 3 and Dayz Stand Alone. Very easy to build! I reused my optical drive and HDD, Windows 10 booted right up. Had to install a network driver from the provided disk that came with the MB, it took care of the rest of the driver updates all on its own after that. All in all a great performing rig with tons of room to grow. For around $1000 this build is a great bang for the buck. I followed a rule of thumb, that if I'd have to upgrade, I should keep it under $100. The cooler will need to be upgraded once I'm ready to overclock, but at $25 that's ok. The ram can be upgraded as well if needed in the future. The DDR4 allows me a little future proof room. A 256 SSD will be ordered once the mail in rebates arive.

This is a nice build, and the CPU and GPU seem to balance out really well and shouldn't bottle neck each other. Solid choice going for the 390X except that it will probably never use all 8 GB of its ram. For of build of this quality you should consider a boot SSD. You will really enjoy the extra speed that comes with a boot SSD. It only needs to be 60gb but I would recommend a 128gb one for this build. Good luck and happy gaming!

I was going to buy the r9 390 but newegg was out of stock. I was able to snag the 390x by buying it as a combo with the PCU. I paid $30 more than I would have for the r9 390 (non-X)
