My first ever PC Build. Pretty sweet specs but maintain at reasonable price that money can buy. I build this PC main for Multimedia work, some gaming and also rendering. I could have gone a way better specs but my bank wouldn't allow it XD But that doesn't mean my PC shouldn't go bling bling aye?
Anyway let's go through the parts.
i7-8700 w/ MA410M: For the CPU, I went for the i7 non-K version. Simply because I have no idea how to OC and the fact that this CPU has 6cores 12threads, that pretty good already. I will use this CPU for light rendering, multitask and future proof. For the Cooler, well I wanted to go for Deepcool Gammaxx RGB. But couldn't get it. However, MA410M handle my CPU temp pretty well. Under-load, the CPU temperature manage to stay under 60 to 65 Celsius. After all it's a massive cooler haha!
ROG Strix H370-F: Since I'm not OC my CPU nor RAM, I went for the H370-F. It has a good sound-card() at this price point. And I heard this MOBO can handle the I7 without a problem so I don't want to break the bank buying any expensive MOBO. Oh ya, it has Asus Aura as well.
16GB XPG SPECTRIX: As I stated above, I want this PC to handle my multitask work and staff. 16GB nowadays is the sweet spot for gaming and multimedia work. Not too overkill. XPG SPECTRIX has nice RGB and casing. It suits well with my build.
GTX 1060 GALAX: At this price point, I could have gone for a better GPU. I was skeptical with its performance. But I gave it a try for a good few days. It's not bad. Under-load and idle, the GPU manage to maintain its silent(not too silent ofc) and the temperature. It handles well for my games like NFS Payback at full 1080p settings.
Acer Nitro VG240Y 23.8'': Looking for budget monitor that is IPS and also 75hz with 1ms response time? Look no further!
I guess that's about it about my PC build. If you have any questions, please drop them below. Would love to answer it!
