Hi, this is my first attempt at building a PC. I've always wanted to build a PC and finally, after a lot of research, I went for it. The build was based on a mid-range system. Looked for good performance, without spending too much for a first attempt. Overall, the finished product was better than I expected!

Part Reviews


Great performance, 4 cores gets most or all from the Rx 580. Happy with the performance overall.


Good Motherboard. I haven't used any other boards, but this was nice. Wish it had more fan headers, guess next time it will be an ATX board.


Very fast SSD, boots really fast.


As the first case i bought\used, it was very nice to work with. Painted interior and includes 3 fans. Good room for cable management. Looks sleek with the side window.

Power Supply

Nice PSU, black cables. Good value.

Nice build but what is the GPU? You forgot to put it in

Hey Jamlons, I had a Rx 470 in it initially, but had to return to MSi due to driver issues. I sadly don't currently have a GPU at the moment, but will try to get one soon.

Maybe its a 1060? Hopefully he adds it in :)

Ah okay, Now that I looked back in the picture I can see that. Now I know not to comment at 7 in the morning lol.

If I were you, I'd pair a 1050ti with the pentium. They're fairly cheap now, easy to find, and are good at 1080p gaming. Otherwise, I know superbiiz has a good deal on rx 480's right now ($239.99), which is comparatively cheap given the $300.00+ price for the cards.

Thanks Squarewave, was thinking the same. I had gotten the rx 470 at a good price a few months back, but most likely I will end up getting a 1050 ti, or if I'm lucky, a deal on a 3 GB 1060.
