My first build upgraded from a hp pavillion core 2 quad q8200, hd 5450, and 4gb of ram. It originally came with a 9500gs that died, salesman sold me by saying it can play crysis lol not sure if it still could after the hd5450. This PC will be replacing my xbox one for gaming and I'm also learning unreal engine and blender to start creating my own projects.
I kinda kick myself for not just getting the 2080 super but i wouldn't have been able to afford a 1440p 144hz monitor. Maybe I could have if i stuck with a b450 board but after watching buildzoid's vid on mobos for 3rd gen ryzen i was sold on the aorus elite and wanted my first build to go as smooth as possible i.e. not having to deal with bios updates just to get system running.
No Issues that updated bios didn't fix. Will be upgrading to 32gb of 3600 cl16 ram and deciding on whether to just get an aio or slowly put together an open loop from ekwb or corsairs hydro x line
