So, the time finally arrived where i have given up on consoles and come back to PC gaming! I haven't owned a PC capable of gaming since I was a child - how odd is that.
The aim, was to have a solid build that can be used to game on things like Destiny 2, World of Warcraft, Division 2 and whatever else too my fancy.
I really enjoyed putting this together, after a few chosen curse words and a couple of scratched on the old knuckles - I finally got it all set up. Machine booted first go and the only issue I had was with the network card requiring a driver download.
Im still in the middle of downloading the games I play, however have run a user benchmark test with the results below.
|CPU||AMD Ryzen 5 2600X||97.1%|
|GPU||Nvidia GTX 1660-Ti||94.7%|
|SSD||Samsung 970 Evo NVMe PCIe M.2 250GB||234.4%|
|RAM||Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 3000 C16 2x8GB||100.1%|
|MBD||MSI B450 Tomahawk|
Overall, I'm really happy with this build, looks pretty clean and tidy for someone inexperienced with building pc's. Not a bad way to spend £1k - but hopefully its going to last a while.
