Description

I had been gaming on a PS4 since it came out, but one day I learned about the PC world. For about 2 months, I dedicated a ton of time to researching and learning about PC parts and building computers. I had a budget of $1000 for my PC and tried to create a PC focused at 1080p gaming with a 144 hz monitor and to also look fairly nice. I had a lot of money saved up and was ready to put it to use on something.

My main decision was if I was going to go with Intel or AMD and I ended up going with AMD because of the great price to performance ratio. I heard a lot of praise concerning the RTX 2060 and it fit my budget perfectly so I went for it. After 2 months I ordered all of my parts and received everything within a week.

Building the PC went fairly smooth (my only fault being forgetting to plug in the CPU power cable) and the parts all fit nicely together. I did have to manually set the ram to 3000 mhz though as it was automatically set to 2133. TechSource and Bitwit helped me a lot to complete the process of building the computer. In the future, I plan to pick up an aftermarket cooler or aio liquid cooler so I can overclock my cpu farther, but for now I am fine using the stock cooler.

Let me know if you have on comments, critiques, or suggestions on what you would've done and I'll be sure to read them :)

Part Reviews

CPU

Great price to performance cpu. No problems with it so far

Motherboard

Good budget B450 motherboard that works great. BIOS is not too confusing too. I do wish that it had an adressable RGB header on it though.

Storage

Insanely cheap for a 500GB SSD, only problem I had is that you have to update the drivers on it or else you will experience random, short freezes.

Video Card

Great card for 1080 or 1440 gaming that is quiet and looks really nice

Case

Well built case for the price, Only comes with one fan, no rubber grommets, and few tie down points in the back. Kinda wish i got an H500 or Meshify C

Power Supply

Does the job, have had no problems

Case Fan

They look great and perform well. They can get a little loud though and I wasn't able to put any static colors on them with the limited color options on the included mini controller. I had to get software control for lighting customization using the MasterPlus software which didn't work at first because I had to update the firmware on the mini controller. I also had to stealth route a micro usb cable from the controller to a usb port on the back of my motherboard through a pcie bracket

Custom

Super cheap great looking sleeved cable extensions. They stay right where they are when you shape them into place.

Nicely done! I thought it was custom at first but I dig that the case's PSU shroud has a small rectangular cutout for the GPU PCIe cable.

My also built my PC with the R5 2600 and RTX 2060 combo! I feel like the performance you get is well worth the overall build cost.

Have you experimented with overclocking on the stock cooler yet? Please share the results with us!

Looks great! I just finished a build in the P350X too, love the colors. It really goes well with the whole aesthetic of your desk area.

Ah I see, I'll probably just go for a better mobo so I can connect the fans

Yeah that's what I was thinking, I dunno if I should wait on ryzen 3000 and Navi before I build

Is there anything really modern that you could put into your PCI-E 2.0?
