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?

contacted submitter 1 Build 1 point 16 months ago

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.

contacted submitter 1 Build 1 point 15 months ago

Works fine!

This is so hygge.

contacted submitter 1 Build 2 points 16 months ago

hygge means... ?

rdracerboyd 1 Build 2 points 16 months ago

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.

hygge is exactly what I was going for. Thank you!

Whats the performance of 1060 and 1200 combo is it good?

contacted submitter 1 Build 1 point 16 months ago

To me (layman's perspective) its pretty good.

Looks like it is the Ducky Legend Blue LED Backlit Mechanical Keyboard.

Yeah, I'm thinking the same thing as well:

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

Great budget build! My father's PC has the same motherboard and case.

Which Dell monitor do you have? Looks great!

contacted submitter 1 Build 2 points 16 months ago

THANKS, its a Dell U2414H. Got it in 2015.

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

contacted submitter 1 Build 1 point 16 months ago

Yea, thats my upgrade path for the near future. Thank you.

oldaf 1 point 16 months ago

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.

contacted submitter 1 Build 1 point 15 months ago

1070 if your budget allows!

Faasos 1 point 16 months ago

How did you get that backpack?

contacted submitter 1 Build 1 point 15 months ago

A free gift by the distributor here locally in Singapore

What framerate on GTA V?

Ronnie69669 -2 points 16 months ago

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.

bloodroses75 1 Build 2 points 16 months ago

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.

contacted submitter 1 Build 1 point 16 months ago

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