Gorgeous. Amazing job on this build.
beautiful and clean build
I choose the psu because it was a good price for what we got, we didn't need it to be modular because he doesn't even have a window on his case. As for the 2400g, I'm pretty sure it was at the time like $4 more expensive than some other ryzen and had a significantly higher performance.
Nice setup and computer! May I ask, where did you get that desk from? I'm looking for a new one and yours seems to be the perfect width.
I wasn't planning on it but that is something that could definitely be done. I would probably get a strip of rbg leds off amazon and put them around the inside of the case. He doesn't have his pc on his desk so he might not want that, but it would look pretty cool!
I often won't put in SSDs for starter builds only because they are a bit of money and I want to get a lot of performance out of other things before I get an SSD. If the person hasn't had an SSD before then they are fine with how a 7200rpm hard drive performs. However, recently I just went to his house to install an SSD and 8gb of ram! Thanks for reminding me to put that in the description and thanks for the upvote!
Unless he gets a cheap monitor stand from Amazon, that thing will have to do. Before I had an adjustable monitor, I just used my motherboard box so I wasn't looking down at my monitor. As for the wifi, I totally agree with you that lan is better. I said that he is 3 ft away, but in between those two desks is the middle of the room. In order for him to get lan, he would have to run the cable along the ceiling and I don't think he is comfortable doing that. Thanks for the comment!
Thanks guys <3
He definitely will be adding one in the future :)
Your comment caused me to check the price and it actually was $209 but there isn't much of a difference. I wasn't aware the RX 580 was a lot better, thanks for the info! I'll have to check out some benchmarks.
How is the wifi on the motherboard? I am planning on doing a build with this specific motherboard and I wanted to know if it will be enough to game without lag. (I am in the room under my router)
That is a good plan, but still, if you were going to just be gaming and NOT upgrading in the near future this wouldn't be the best build for that. Mind you, this is still a sweet build, but purely from a performance perspective, if you were not going to go with the 1080 ti, it would not be the best bang for your buck.
If your build is going to be purely for gaming I can not recommend this build. For just gaming an i5-7600k (or 7600 if you're not going to overclock) with a gtx 1060 or even 1070, and with ram that is not rgb, you can get better performance for probably less money. No disrespect to this build but in gaming, the i5 will do better with a 1060 or 1070 than an i7 will with a 1050 ti.
Very nice build! Thank you for including the average fps you get in these games since I am planning on building a system similar to this with a ryzen 5 and 1050 ti. It helps to get all the information I can about how all of the parts perform!
I know this was posted a long time ago but the aesthetics of the build are incredible. Great job! +1
Was there something you had to remove in the case for the ATX power supply to fit or did it just go right in?
This is not on the affordable side, and you have the wrong case in the part list...
