Description

I game primarily. Not that hardcore 4k stuff, more along the lines of run of the mill 1080p gaming. I don't do any editing or anything. Basically the PC is used for gaming and some light work-related tasks.

Overall the system works well and the build turned out how I expected it to. Everything runs decently and I get a smooth 60 fps on the games I've tried so far(MHW, TD2 and DOTA 2) and I haven't run into any hitches while browsing or and or the "daily use" type tasks.

One thing I overlooked being that this is my first build is that the Adata m.2 SSD is actually Sata rather than nvme. Not a huge deal because it still works great as a boot drive.

Great build! I was actually looking at some of the parts you got but cut it cause of my budget being extremely low. +1

This is an awesome first build. Down the line an NZXT AIO and a GPU upgrade will easily take this from budget to high end, but that's all in the future. Enjoy your computer! You could also get a 1080P 144Hz monitor and benefit from it with your current hardware, especially for the games you play.

I wanted a really nice monitor, but after the parts for the build were ordered, I looked at what it all came out to and basically tried to keep the monitor price pretty low. I actually don't plan on upgrading the monitor until after I get a gpu(definitely saving for that) that can play higher settings on a better resolution

Nice looking build and budget. You could consider getting a Nitro+ RX 590 at the price of your MSI RX 580 though.

I didn't even think about that. I originally had the 2600 in my parts list, but made a last minute decision to get the 2600x instead. So I originally hadn't even planned to have a standalone GPU until I could save for a really nice one, so I settled with the 580.Thats definitely what Ill be updating first, though. Thanks!

Good budget i guess... In my opinion, this is pretty much a dream build cos all of those parts are good stuff. Maybe, only cooler stands out but i hear that they are quite reliable considering the price.

Most of the parts are budget. I wouldn't say that.

Are all of the fans 120mm? Your build is lovely by the way.

Yes, they are all 120mm. Corsair ll120 fans have done really well and I love the customizability of the RGB. Also, thanks a ton.

Did you have a max budget of something like £1000?

  • 11 months ago

Right around that is what I spent for the PC itself. But that included vanity stuff like the fans and a hue 2 that I'm still waiting on.

Wow this build looks nice. Any tips for cable management? Are those aftermarket cable sleeves? Looking to build my own soon and any tips would be greatly appreciated.

  • 8 months ago

Sorry so late, but the cable extensions are asiahorse brand. I don't have any real cable management tips, as my cable management didn't go how I wanted. Lol. Cable extensions added alot of mass to what went behind my case and in the psu shroud, so it really made it a pain. If I'd had the money I would have gone with some completely custom cables instead of just adding the extensions.

Thanks! I have been debating whether or not to get extensions, I think I’ll save until I can afford some full length customs.

Did you do any testing on system temps with/without the front intake fans?

1200$ is not really a good price for a budget pc its too much

Edit: ok i checked the parts list and it included the monitor so the budget is 1000$ for the pc and actually its descent because its taken me months trying to find an rtx build for 1000$ with full rgb Btw your build is nice

  • 11 months ago

Yeah I really it's not the lowest budget, I guess. My original intent was to run the included graphics on the 2600, but I made a last minute decision to get the 2600x, which forced me to get an actual gpu. That's where the price kinda shot up so I get what you're saying.

Good thing, because the 2600 doesn't have integrated graphics. Most AMD processors don't unless it's specified.

  • 11 months ago

Definitely realized that after the fact. Now that I think about it, I don't remember what I was originally looking at that had integrated graphics. Lesson learned there, though.

You might be confusing the 2600 with the 2400G, which has integrated graphics

You can check out my part list named noob destroyer for a 1020$ build with the best rtx 2060 money can buy if youd like, with a ryzen 7 1700x 8 core processor not the best ryzen 7 but its for the cores and its only 5-6 dollars more than ryzen 5 2600x which what you claim is used in your build if i am correct. Psu goes 680 watts and mother board is overclockable as well as cpu and the gpu

i just made modifications with my build making it all white except power supply which would be hidden (because i am using the NZXT h500 case) and also the drives (also hidden since drive cage is behind the little thing at the bottom) i will still be using the rtx 2060 just this time i am using gigabyte geforce rtx 2060 oc pro white 6gb
