Description

hey! guys, I have been with the PCPP community for quite a time but it's the first time I'm posting a completed build :D. This build is mainly focused on playing games at least for 3 years. I'm in Sri Lanka and the actual prices differ a lot from the US prices. Started building this in February 2016 and finished after buying much-awaited RX 470 in September. I'm very satisfied with this building except for the case and the power supply. Currently playing BF1, Witcher 3, GTA V and Farcy 4 without any performance issues.One thing I got to say is that AMDs driver support is absolutely fantastic! Have had no issues other than some random crashes so kudos to Radeon Technology Group for improving driver support. So that's it guys I hope this won't let me down for next few years.

P.S. Will upload the Pictures tomorrow.

Part Reviews

CPU

Great CPU for gaming and have had no bottlenecks with this one so far.

Motherboard

Well its a b150 mobo nothing much to say gets the job but it got a customizable led strip and logo so I'm satisfied :D.

Memory

Love the low-profile design and it didn't cost me a lot.

Video Card

Ah! star of the show! This card is a BEAST! its really cool and power efficient. I was going to buy a 380 at first but then Polaris happened and got one of these bad boy! Works even better when Undervolted kudos to AMD for making such a great card!

Ikr, There arent many pc parts in here and most of them are overpriced(my 470 cost me rs 39k which is equal to $270 :( ).

Good GPU choice I am looking to get an RX 470 myself.

Manula.Pabasara submitter 1 Build 1 point 28 months ago

yeah its the best bang for buck GPU right now. It performs even better and cooler when you under volt it :D My faithful nitro 470 hasnt let me down.

Get the Nitro 470. Its the best 470 with a backplate and great RGB lighting .
