Description

Well i finally pulled the trigger and decide to start my build. I Went with the Ryzen 3 2200G because i didn't need the graphics card right away. I got these parts for a lot cheaper then pc part picker was showing. I got most of them from Microcenter.

My plans are to get a better ryzen cpu probably the Ryzen 5 1600x in the next month or so and get a graphics card and a actual Monitor for gaming instead of my samsung tv.

Still looking for good ideas for graphics card to match with the cpu im going to get.

Part Reviews

CPU

Its been a good cpu for the gaming and photo editing i use it for.

Motherboard

This mother board has a lot off options. only a couple of compatibility issues but its with the rgb between the motherboard and ram that i have.

Storage

First time using a m.2 and my system starts so quick i'm glad i went this route with my OS stoarge

Case

The case is pretty good not the case i really wanted but in a rush to build. The cable management is good though easy to tuck stuff away neatly

The RX 580 8GB is a decent price right now. If you're looking for high end performance the 1080 is always a good choice though.

What you're doing should determine what GPU you choose. Do you game? What sort of games do you play? I have a 1050 with a 34 inch 1440p ultrawide monitor (I can't afford a better card lol) but when I had a 1080p display the 1050 did me just fine. Good luck!

yeah but its in the way of the ram and turning it the other way didn't fit.

Here let me recommend a Hard Drive that has more space and is just a little more and a graphics card will be needed for a lot of games so i recommend at least a GTX 1050ti or 1060 to start and the Ryzen 5 is a good choice. https://pcpartpicker.com/product/CbL7YJ/seagate-barracuda-2tb-35-7200rpm-internal-hard-drive-st2000dm006

The AMD ryzen 3 2200G will bottleneck the 1080ti.
