Everything installed perfectly. No issues with any components. I use it for general use as well as 1080p gaming.
You literally spent 210$ for case, modular psu and led fans and you call it budget?
PSU is probably the one part you never want to go too budget on. It's also the most reusable part you can buy. $850 for 1080P gaming doesn't sound bad at all to me. I guess "budget" is subjective.
Exactly, budget is really just the amount a certain person wants to spend
mmm, price changes do occur.
I got the case for $60, the PSU was on sale plus MIR so I paid $45 for it at the end of the day. The fans were $30
Very nice build, good choice going with that PSU no reason to cheap on it at start like I have always. Also nice case choice sure little expensive but that is something that can be used in future upgrades still. I hope you didn't pay 200 for a RX 580 though I see them used for like 150. Overall good job. Enjoy it man. If I was you though I would have cheaped on the m.2 to lesser brand and put that extra 40-50 into a ryzen 5 2600 over 1600. Even though 1600 very capable chip.
I was debating going with the 2600 but I didn’t want to spend $40 above the $80 I paid for the 1600 for an 8% increase in performance. My plan is to upgrade to a 3600 within a year. The RX580 I paid $140 for new. I paid $120 for the M.2 so not too bad. I also got the PSU for $45 after a sale and MIR.
