+ Total (United States):
First off, this build was meant to be strong and fierce, yet budgeted and meant to be built on later and meant to be simplistic.. My reasoning below. :D -update- Last 3 pics have some better cable managment!
CPU Ryzen 5 1600 - This CPU is a nice rounded CPU for someone like me that is only gaming and doing school work on the machine. with 6 cores and 12 threads and 3.2ghz base clock speed, this cpu crushes everything i've thrown at it. (my own benchmarks below)
MOBO Asus ROG Strix B350-F - After my research, i found that the AMD AM4 B350 chipset is the chipset i wanted to build around. This board has it all, M.2 slot, RGB headers, 2 dual channel DIMM slots, and the color pattern and aesthetics are very nice.
Memory Corsair Vengeance LPX 2x4g sticks running DDR4-2666- i will be adding a little more ram in the foreseeable future but for now this is fine. This ram has very good speed with just the right amount of RAM for now.
Storage Samsung 860 EVO 250gig 2.5 inch- Im aware 250gigs isnt enough to do much. But since I only have like 2-3 games i play alot, this will be suffice till i can get another SSD. And this SSD's performance so far has been on point.
GPU EVGA GeForce GTX 1070Ti 8gb GDDR5, 1.61 ghz - This card has been smashing through games! Crazy good thermals and performance. Definately do not regret this decision.
Case Corsair Spec-02 This case is pretty aesthetically pleasing but is pretty plain, but it came with 3 fans that put in some serious work. 2 i think 144mm fans and a 120mm fan blowing from front to back. Has 2 SSD bays, and 3 HDD bays.
PSU EVGA GQ 750W 80+ Gold Cert- Speaks for itself. great psu
Monitor LG 34UM69G-B Cool as hell monitor, the screen is a little big for my tastes, but i do like it. looks great. games look on point. sporting a cool 75hz refresh, 34inch, 2560x1080 21:9 aspect ratio. 1ms response times.
Keyboard Corsair Strafe RGB- I absolutely love mechanical keyboards but the click can get aggravating. This keyboards Brown switches are super silent and i love them. my new favorite switch. My last keyboard was a Razor Blackwidow ultimate 2017 edition that was entirely to clicky for me and i did not like it.
Mouse Logitech g703 Wireless- This mouse is the best mouse i have ever used. Nice weight, doesn't really have input lag that i can tell and battery life for a gaming mouse is awesome at 12 hours or so with the LEDs on. Also, im extremely tall with big hands and this mouse fits my hands well.
P.S. - Between price matching and bundling i feel like i got a hell of a deal on this system, rebate returns included. I feel like this computer is an absolute beast and do not regret any component decisions. But will be adding some things like more memory DIMM's and storage in the near future, by the end of the year.
Benchmarking- Witcher 3 Wild Hunt - Holds a beautiful 110fps on max settings with the Nvidia Hairworks setting reduced slightly to fix a stuttering issue i was having.
Final Fantasy 15 Royal Windows Edition - All Max settings the game was rocking a very cool 60-75 fps with some minor stutters when walking in pools of water(bodies of water).
World of Warcraft - Straight up balled all through that max settings no issues even in populated places like Dalaran i was holding 50-75 fps with minor drops. But that is no surprise.
