Description

Just a low end budget gaming build with a red design. Tested this machine with Project Cars 2. It was stable at 60fps at 1080p. There were a few driver issue with the A320, just had to reinstall them for a second time and everything was all good. I was very impressed with performance for such a low end card.

Update: Fixed Price

Part Reviews

CPU

Great little cpu. I was amazing to get something like it back when it came out. It can run any basic program or game easily. I would be giving it a 5 star if it had a higher clock speed, as the new 2200g is faster and offers more atm. I would also recommend anyone to look into a 1300x as a secondary option.

Motherboard

Just a cheap board for a basic PC. Nothing too special with it being an A320M, but it works and gets the job done. The red detailing is nice if you are going for a red and black design though.

Memory

Nice and simple design, looks great with the red LED's. Would be good if it was a bit cheaper and closer to other memory brands.

Storage

This was such a popular SSD in 2017. It was cheaper and delivered good performance for its price. At the time there was only adata to compete with, so this ssd did very well in sales. Never had any issues with any of the UV400 series, great entry ssd for anyone.

Video Card

For what the card is and for the price, I was very impressed with it. I had the card running Project Cars 2 while this PC was on display. It always sat at 60fps on medium-high settings. Many customers were surprised to see a PC running something like that at its price. I would give it a 5 star, but with the new vega iGPU's it makes this card not as special for its price.

Case

The case is great, easy to setup a build inside. It just needs actual glass on the side and it would be perfect.

Power Supply

It works, no problems at all.

Monitor

It is a really universal monitor with decent quality to almost all components. I had one already before I did this build and recently the hinge has become quite unstable when adjusting sadly. With the new AOC freesync monitors available for a similar price, I no longer recommend this monitor.

Trying to build a Ryzen 3 build on a budget sort of like this one. It looks very appealing, nice build (+1)

Thank you! :) I would recommend switch to the cpu to a 2200g as its the same price and has better performance.

Wut? Does the job while keeping costs low :)

It’s been shown that because of ryzen’s infinity fabric, it performs better with faster ram - I suggest you try overclock your current ram to 2666mhz

  • 16 months ago

The customer did not want to overclock, yes I do know about 2666mhz ram for Zen 1st gen, but the object was for budget at the time. I sold this late last year as a custom build. On top of that I need to keep within supplier warranty, so I can't overclock even if i wanted to. I wish the Ryzen APU's were out at the time of this build though.

Ah

I thought it was a personal build

That's all good haha :) But you are correct with the RAM and not many people know about it. So hopefully others will still see your comment.

I know this is a bit late but do you think I should upgrade to this card from a Vega 8 iGPU?

Nice build btw!

I wouldn't recommend it. They are too close. I would save for like a 1060/Rx570 or higher. That would be a better upgrade

Thanks for the advice, In between when I made that comment I bought a GTX 960 2GB off my friend so that should keep me going for a while. Thanks for the help though!

You should have went with a GTX 1050 if available EVGA has one available and it offers about 60 percent more performance. Besides that great build.

This was built 2 years ago and the 1050 cost $50-$100 more. The main focus of this build was to keep as cheap as possible :) If it existed at the time, I would have used a Ryzen APU instead

I mean yeah this is surely a nice build. I like it, a lot. The only weird thing is that it does not have enough storage, because 120GB SSD is just barely enough to store Hitman 2 with enough storage for GTA V. Since your client is on a strict budget, a 500GB hard drive should cost no more than $20. It's scary how low you can pick up one of these. I found a 2TB hard drive on Amazon for like, $38. Hopefully, this certain person won't catch me doing this, but honestly, it's a nice build, regardless of the storage.

It was a build for a customer as stated in the comments. Client was under a strict budget.

Just browsing builds. Your negative comments happen to catch my eye, as they are pretty out of place.
