Description

This is my second build that I made for myself, and it has been very aesthetically driven. It took nearly 7 months of planning, along with 1 month of allocating all of the parts. Overall, I am very happy with how it turned out. I haven't done any benchmarks yet, but I'll try to update as I do it. So far, I've only played CS:GO at max settings, 1080p 60fps. This is a massive upgrade over my old system (Athlon 880k + 1050ti). It took less than 3 minutes to install CS:GO, so a large upgrade over my previous rig. Thank you so much PCPP for your help. See you next upgrade!

Part Reviews

CPU

Gets the job done perfectly. Would recomend 100% to anyone unsure of where to start for their budget build. Rarely bogs down, and an overall improvement from my old build.

Motherboard

Great compatibility, I didn’t have to get a dud cpu to update the bios. Had a very pleasant time building. My only problem is that RGB Fusion seems like it was made in 15 minutes by a toddler.

Memory

Beautiful. Fast. Really all you need to know to buy it.

Storage

Lightning fast. Definitely get over a hard drive any dya!

Video Card

Great GPU, if you can get a good price on it

Case

Comes with RGB strips. Case is clean. Just really good overall!

Power Supply

Great power supply. Try to get sleeved cables if you can!

Operating System

Too expensive. Otherwise, good.

Monitor

Good budget 27” monitor. Got it from Costco for $200 cad.

Mouse

Very durable, maybe a bit uncomforable after a while. Good otherwise!

Headphones

Great sounds, and some RGB goodness. When you get it, use iCue to enable surround sound!

Custom

Looks great, compatibility went fine. Would reccomend if you find a good deal, and comes with plenty of cables.

Custom

Cheap. Frayed within a few days. Thinking of getting smaller but RGB mousepad.

Custom

Very amazing feel vs. Membrane. Very much would reccomend to anyone looking for a good, genuine Cherry mechanical keyboard!

Custom

Radiant and very bright. Over 50 different profiles, but not all are good. If you don’t want to spend $100+ on fans then these are a great option.

I sure did! I woke up at 5 AM to go to a Canada Computers store to get the motherboard, SSD, and power supply. The build went well, took about three hours until windows install. I’m very happy with how it went.

Nice build! Do you plan on getting a backplate or making one for the rx580? It would tidy up the build, maybe some sleeved cables too. Also, are those gamdias fans good?

I don't have any plans to get one.. maybe in the future. I do, actually, have sleeved cables, in blue and black. Found 'em at Best Buy, and honestly, they're pretty good. About the fans: Yeah, they're actually really good for single colour setups. If you want fully addressable RGB, then get LL120/140 fans from Corsair. Airflow seems great, everything is under 40C.

What cables were they? Maybe I can find ones I like at Best Buy. Thanks for the reply ^

They’re TTMod sleeved cables. They’re extensions, so they work with most to all PSUs. Ifound them with the small supply of PSUs they had. Sorry for taking a while to respond

Nice! I was close to getting the same case and kinda wish i did since my build turned out quite compact. But knowing how hot vega gets i opted for a case with good air flow. Great build mate!

Nice build. I plan on getting a ryzen 2600 and I have that same graphics card how is the performance for cad use. And what software do you use.

As of right now, I don’t have much thoughts about software, but am thinking of trying CAD in the future.
