Description

The last time I had a gaming PC was with an Ivy Bridge processor back in 2012. I was lured back into PC gaming specifically for PUBG and now DOS2. Hence I was initially intrigued by budget builds with the G4560, then Ryzen debuted. I'm not a hardcore gamer, not possible with a newborn but this is my budget to mid range system.

I have minimal experience in building a PC and zero experience in overclocking, but with YouTube guides I have successfully built this dekstop and it's currently running at 3.8GHz at 1.25v.

Part Reviews

CPU

Loving the Ryzen, got it to 3.8GHz quite effortlessly.

Motherboard

Great board, easy to work with and the front panel headers wasn't that difficult to install. Wifi and Bluetooth works great.

Awesome looking build. Its kind of along the lines what I'm planning. How have you found it's doing for performance in games and with pubg? What settings are you doing for it?

Thank you! Performance is very good in my books, PUBG is running around 60-80fps at 1080p. I think I have most on High and View Distance at Ultra.

Does this cpu works without bios update ? Some people are saying that ryzen 3 won't post without a new bios.

It's a Danish word that basically translates to comfortable and cozy.

Your setup is cozy, not frenetic and RGB, which I appreciate.

Of course, I'm also old, married and have a hectic job. So for me, the computer is relaxation zone...not a crazy zone.

The biggest giveaway is the Ducky logo and the word Legend on the space bar.

Stunning build. I'm a big fan of the monitor! This build has no weaknesses, and is a very capable mid range pc.

The only thing I'd keep in mind for the future is another 8gb stick so you can run dual channel. +1

Wow! This is funny. I am in the exact same RL situation as you, and I was about to order this build, then I found yours when checking for compatibility on this website. My only doubt is whether I should go for 1070 or not. You say PUBG works well? I play that too + League.

1070 if your budget allows!

Mate I'm sorry but this build has alot of mistakes that I do not understand, your mobo literally costs more than your CPU, and you have a 1200 w/ a 1060 6gb. But I guess whatever floats your boat.

That motherboard is the cheapest AM4 board you can get in the mini-itx form factor. As for the Ryzen 3, it really doesn't become a bottleneck until you get into the 1070 or higher class of GPUs.

Granted, he probably should have gone with a Ryzen 5 or 7, but it may not have been in his budget at the time and he can upgrade later; possibly to the Zen 2 series.

No worries, but I was looking for a budget to mid range build. Could you advise what you would have done differently?
