Hi, this is my first long and anticipated attempt at building a PC! GPU: Msi 1050ti Gaming X 4gig I was originally planning on getting the 1060 3gig but budget issues and crypto pushed me towards the 1050ti for the time being. So far it's a little beast, it performs better than i thought paired with the 1500x. lm a noob at computers, so my first attempt at overclocking the card failed, i crashed the system and had to delete Afterburner to remove the saved application packets. Lesson learned, I'll attempt it again when i feel it's necessary. So far the card works great at stock speeds.
CPU: Ryzen 5 1500x Installation was easy and simple, the stock cooler was a little tricky to install although it was completely my fault on not understanding that i had to push down to lower the springs on the brackets. Performance wise, no problems thus far! Haven't overclocked passed it's stock 3.5hz yet. But so far I'm impressed. I'm not sure how ryzen chips fare against emulators like Dolphin, but whenever i play gamecube iso's on dolphin i get some slow down and low fps. Is anyone experiencing this with dolphin?
RAM: Corsair lpx 3000 ddr4 Nothing special here RAM is RAM, faster speeds the better for Ryzen! I went through alot of trouble getting these sticks, RAM is ridiculously overpriced right now ,what should have been 16gb of ram is now 8gigs do to my budget unfortunately. The sticks were NOT set at 3000 speeds upon boot up. But i set them manually at 2900 through the bios and everything seems to work fine now.
And that's it! I'm pretty satisfied with the over all build so far. Aside from Dolphin the thing is a little beast. I was running the Witcher 3 60fps@1080p upon messing with settings no problem. I was hitting passed 100fps on valley too. Games like Fortnite and Warframe are smooth. Btw THE CASE ROCKS! 50 bucks for tempered glass!
