So, I know what you may be thinking... FX in 2018?!?! Are you crazy? Well yes, I've been wanting to upgrade for a while and will be doing so maybe later this year during the holidays to a Ryzen 5 2600 or i5 8400 not sure yet. But, this build has been by my side since the summer of 2015 and I've been upgrading it a bit periodically. I love this build, it's so reliable and runs all the games that I want to play at 90-100+ fps (I know I'm playing CSGO in the pictures). So let's see the parts.
I've been using this CPU ever since I got the system and it hasn't had any problems, except it used to run pretty hot until I recently got the Pure Rock Slim.
Oh. My. God. what an upgrade from the original AMD Fx CPU cooler, that thing used to sound like I was right next to an airplane engine. This AIO is amazing, I can barely hear my system at all, and my CPU's temps have drastically changed for the good.
Honestly I've never really thought much of the motherboard until I started upgrading the system and realizing... It's alright... I wish I had an ATX build but that's for when I upgrade my CPU and Mobo etc.
I used to have just one stick of this ram, but now I have two and I can see why 4GB is not enough for 2018 lol. But 8GB is great I haven't encountered any problems.
used to boot off of an old hard drive but that thing fried I'm pretty sure, but what a huge difference an ssd makes it boots up Windows so quickly.
This card makes such a huge difference from my old R7 210 2GB, it is just enough to run all of my games at 1080p and at above 60fps, so it's great.
Okay, this is the one part of the build that I actually really dislike. The blue lights appealed to me in 2015 but now they're ehhh. The cable management is honestly, terrible, it's the worst part of my build. And there's no psu cover like new cases, but I understand, it was made a long time ago.
There honestly isn't that much I have to say about this, I bought it when it was on sale at Best Buy for I think $30 or $40, but it's great.
Don't use it anymore lol.
Great, cool operating system.

I've been using this since 2015 I've had a bit of minor problems but it always gets the job done.
Got it on sale at Best Buy for $125 and it's a huge upgrade from my old Acer monitor that I sold a while ago. It’s super smooth in any game I play and I never get screen tear.
Ordered this seller refurbished off Amazon and got the old version of the K70 but I honestly didn't care I didn't see a large difference. But compared to my old CM Storm Devastator it's great with the Cherry MX Red switches.
Love this mouse the keys on the side are my favorite part, and, obviously the RGB is great.
Amazing headset especially with the RGB, great compared to my old plastic Sades headset (forgot what it was called).
Got this after my old hard drive got fried, and I don't know why but I never thought of getting an internal hard drive. But this stores everything so whatever it's great.
