Description

After a long time thinking about building my own gaming PC, I finally had the funds and the actual motivation to do so. I mainly wanted to build a good looking computer that runs games at 1080p 60 fps steadily, and that would be used for productivity (mainly Excel for work). I wasn't really too concern with crazy graphics or anything mainly because I'll be mostly playing survival rpgs and probably Skyrim for like the 10th time, but with all the awesome mods PC's have to offer lol. Wasn't looking to spend and insane amount of cash on it either, but I did find some decent price drops on Black Friday/Cyber Monday on my Ryzen 5 2600X, Corsair Vengeance Pro RGB 3200 16GB kit, a fully modular EVGA 550 PSU, and my colorful as **** Rosewill Cullinan MX RGB case. Honestly after watching hours of build guides beforehand and doing a decent amount of research on parts made my first build experience pretty enjoyable (minus installing the I/O shield, what a pain in the *** that was.) Took me around 3 hours to get everything assembled and confident enough to boot it up. To my surprise I managed to not mess anything up and it booted first try and I felt like a BOSS haha! Overall I ended up spending around $1000 on everything and another $125ish on my desk and I now I have the fastest PC I've ever personally owned by a long shot. I'm glad I went with an M.2 NVME SSD as my boot drive cause it starts windows up in like 8 seconds or so from being powered off and that is just straight up awesome. I can see why people take PC building up as hobby, soo many options and different possible combinations of parts to choose from! Pumped I finally hopped onboard the PC Master Race lol. \m/

the mouse u bought is a poop lazer mouse and u could of gotten the g203 for 4 dollars more on amazon, pc looks amazing! In my opinion, u should of spared the rgb ram and gotten a normal monitor so u dont have to use a tv lol. I like the case but u paid way to much for it. And when did u buy the gpu?

Bruh the mouse is great. I've never had an issue with it being a laser one, as I have one myself.

compared to the g203 which is like 5$ more its awful. im also guessing u play with high dpi cause 1k dpi and below on a lazer mouse is gonna cause the mouse to spin out with high movement like flicks. im not tryna hate but im just giving my opinion

Compared to the g203 it's great. The shape of the g203 sucks. And there aren't enough buttons. My brother got one. And I have no issues at all with tracking. I don't know what you mean by "spin out" because flicks aren't a problem for me in csgo.

i have small hands so its fine for me, and the mouse is meant for small-medium hands. and if ur rly worried that much about buttons get a g502 or a mmo mouse

The g502 is $15 more 🤔 money that could've been spent on better components if it existed. And we're talking about him, not me. I have a deathadder elite now and I'm happy with it. Go bug someone else with your bad opinions on mice.

Yea I've had no issues with it so far, but I also have 0 experience in dealing with "gaming mice" so I've got nothing to really compare it too lol. The only real issue I've had is with trying to download the program for controlling the RGB for it, it wouldn't let me download it properly from the Red Dragon website when I was first trying to get it set up.

Huh that's odd. I had no issue with the software myself. Although all I ever used it for was changing the dpi settings and changing the 2 side buttons to volume control. Maybe they updated it.

Yea I've got a couple ACTUAL gaming monitors that I've ordered that haven't come in yet. I was just using that spare TV to set everything up on and whatnot. I actually got the case for $90 when I bought it a couple of weeks ago, seems the price has jumped up since then. I'll eventually get a better mouse, honestly I just got it cause it looked dope and had RGB lol (same with the RAM.) I bought the gpu last weekend on Black Friday for like $250, that has also jumped up pretty significantly since I bought it. Thanks for the feed back man.

I ended up getting a couple of 24in BenQ monitors for a little over $100 a piece since they were on sale recently. I'm still waiting for them to be shipped to me, hopefully I'll have them some time soon though.

Hey man, I've got a 3gb 1060 and was wondering if you could see how much vram you use while running modded Skyrim? I know we won't have exactly the same mods but I assume you have some form of mod with increased resolution textures? I'm deciding between this gpu and a used Vega 56

idk when you bought this but you overpaid on the cpu and you bought a bad gpu

He paid a decent price for the cpu, runs for around $140 at the least last time I checked, and the gpu can easily handle what he's throwing at it.

I bought the CPU on sale on Black Friday when it was $120, $5 more than the normal Ryzen 5 2600 which is selling for like $115. Figured I might as well get that X in there for the extra $5. The GPU was not originally that expensive, I waited and bought it on Black Friday as well and got it for like $250. Like I was saying in the description, I'm not gonna be playing any AAA games on this PC, or trying to play at crazy resolutions. I'm happy with 60 fps 1080p, especially coming from a PS4/Xbox this pc ****'s on my consoles in terms of graphics and stability lol. Appreciate the feed back though man.

Lol I guess you're right, it was more like 5 years before I had enough expendable income to build mine so I feel you on that. Much appreciated though man.
