Looks awesome! Just a slight upgrade lol
Try psu or extra motherboard screws. Could be an easy fix, sometimes they're the right size
Confused at how and why you bought an rx570 for $190, along with a cpu with IG. Pricing seems very high especially for this time of year.
Currently building a pc for my friend under a similar budget. In fact, a lot of the parts in this build are similar to what I've bought so far. I happened to get lucky and find a 2600x for $100 and an rx580 for $120 with some digging. Cool to see such a similar build though. Hope your friend enjoys it!
Overkill is certainly right, but I bet you'll have some fun with this. I learned a lot about computers from youtube too, and that's how I built my first rig. A suggestion would be maybe to get into some games that might utilize the monstrous card you have in this. Otherwise nice build
These builds always are amazing to look at. Your build is no exception, and hope you enjoy it!
Seems like a solid rig component wise... cable management not so much
Why would you replace an rx570 with a rx480? Especially if it was the 8gb version
Great story and build! Hope you're grandfather gets better and enjoys the new pc!
Great build but you probably could've found the gtx 1070 used for a lot less, and maybe used that leftover money to buy an aio.
The white on black looks so nice
Why did you spend $90 on a pc case for your grandpa?
Super clean! I love that ducky keyboard too
I would uncap it from 60 fps. Even on monitors that are only 60hz with vsync turned on you can actually get better frame rates. If you watch this video https://youtu.be/uzp8z1i5-Hc it explains it really well
I would definitely go with the rx 570. I play highest settings around 250 FPS at lower points. I have a friend with a gtx 1060 and he gets substantially less FPS. Good luck eother way
Great read and great build! If he wanted to play more graphics intensive games but still on a budget he might want to get an rx 570. Other than that seems solid
i overclocked my ram to 2800, didn't have more time to test to see if further speeds would work. I've only brought my cpu to 3.75 so far. After I get my aio I'll go further
Oh wow, at the price it’s a great platform. Still obsessed with that mobo though. SOOOO CLEAN
Super clean looking build. I LOVE that mobo so much, it does put a lot of character into the build. I just did my first build in the h500i, and its such a great platform to build in. Looks great man
Thank you! It was a joke at first but it actually did provide some better airflow. I'm also really into cars, and a car that has a lot of cringey mods or extra stuff is called a "ricer" or being rice.
Yep, thats exactly what I did. I was planning on buying three fans at first but it would've costed more so I went with five
Right, I thought about this too. However, it’s actually dropped my gpu temps by like 4-5 Cs so I’ve kept it in lol. And thanks I was on a strict budget and this works great. 170 fps steadily on Fortnite max settings
Honestly I have no idea, around Christmas time my friend let me use his mousepad, Amazon basics keyboard and cheapo gaming mouse that I plugged into my Xbox. He ended up getting a 3 foot one so he let me keep it. It’s steel series just idk model
Thanks! I wasn’t sure if it was too much, but I did want people to kind of know how long it kinda was before I got everything!
Super sick setup man!
