After a couple of attempts to make something half decent without a steady source of income, I finally went around and made a build I knew I'd be happy with for the forseeable future. It is equipped to handle 144fps gaming, some content creation, and multitasking, with room to grow in the future.

After a few weeks of using it, I feel it will more than suffice for all of my use cases.

Part Reviews


Excellent value, is able to compete with the speed and responsiveness of Intel while also including a fantastic stock cooler. The single complaint I could make is that its value is significantly less so than that of the 3600.


I absolutely love the sound chip in this thing. It made the speakers I've been using for a long time finally play bass loudly, and somehow the clarity just feels better.

As for the rest of it, it's what you'd expect from a >$200 motherboard. I'm not an overclocker so I don't know how it can handle that but I'd highly recommend this board to anyone buying the 3900X or 3950X.


Got 32GB near the price of 16, looks great, maxes out my 3700X's Infinity Fabric clock. Not much more to say.


Incredible deal, works a lot faster than the old sata drives I bought a few years back and has hella space. My first pick for an ssd in terms of value.

Video Card

Not the best value, but delivers on features and consistency. Hopefully the prices will be better later this year.


Decent monitor, but unfortunately has some annoying coronas at times. Not bad if you get it for cheap.
