Description

It's been a long time since I built a PC so I could've done a better job picking parts, but I'm satisfied with how much power I get for the price. The RX 570 is pretty good for what it does. I was able to play most games at around 120ish FPS, which was pretty good since I got a 144Hz monitor.

In the future I'd add some more case fans, since during high GPU load, like playing modern titles, the entire case starts to heat up and I only have one case fan that came with the Cougar QBX.

Speaking of Cougar QBX, its a bit plastic-y but dang I love the looks of it

Did you have to update your BIOS on mobo for ryzen 3600?

Nope, I'm not sure if the mb came updated or something but it just kinda worked. I did update the BIOS after I got everything working though

nice, 570 8gb should be decent for about 6 months then I'd upgrade to a 5700 which from there should last about 2/3 years at 1080p if you take the graphic settings down to medium.

Yeah I'm thinking to go for somewhere in the lines of GTX 1660 or RX 5700 or something in the future, but for now I just needed something to get my rig going. Could you give me some cards around the RX 5700 range? I'm not really familiar with GPUs.

I have the rx 5700 and its a 1440p class card. It can do 100fps in some games. Its also a really good high refresh rate 1080p option if you can live with that resolution. Its main competitor is the RTX 2060. these both go for $350 msrp but I got mine at a discount. 5700 performs better and has 8gb of ram. 2060 has 6gb of ram while offering nvidia specific features but less performance

Around the 5700 range would be the 2060 and 2060 super, don't go with a 1660ti as you may as well go with a 2060, if anything either get a 1660 or 1660 super but soon the 5700 should go down when they release a new series.

How did you like building in the Cougwr QBX? I am thinking of making it my next case to build in.

Instructions and manuals were a bit unclear since theyre just like one page showing all the components, but I liked building in it a lot. The case is pretty open but compact at the same time. Cable management was a bit hard though, trying to wrap the cables behind the mb was a bit tough
