Description

This is my build I use for gaming, video editing, audio mixing, and everything else you do on a PC. I am in the process of upgrading audio (obviously), and hoping to upgrade from the default CPU cooler soon.

Part Reviews

CPU

Works very well, and is one of the best value high end CPUs you can get, obviously I bought this before 3rd gen came out, so I suggest the 3700x if you are looking at this.

Motherboard

Great mobo, has clearance for everything. BIOS is very user friendly, even in advanced mode.

Memory

What can you expect, RAM works and can reach 3200mHz easily.

Storage

Fairly slow for an ssd, but what can you expect for the price. If you are planning on using for a boot drive, obviously works; however, I suggest upgrading the capacity.

Storage

Works very well, and has no problem with speed. Great value for the price.

Video Card

I have seen negative reviews on the RTX 20 series, but I have had no problems personally. If you are reading this DO NOT BUY THIS, I only bought the OC model because it was cheaper than every other 2070. Also be sure to check out the 2070 Supers, which weren't out at my time of purchase.

Case

Terrible airflow, look for other options if you have mid-high end parts. Looks very nice and IO all works great!

Power Supply

Very good PSU for a fair price. WHATEVER YOU DO, DO NOT CHEAP OUT ON YOUR PSU!!

Case Fan

Works well, and software works fine. Not sure what its doing to cool, because they have been installed sense day one.

Monitor

Good monitor if you are looking for a budget gaming panel, but colors are terrible. If that's no concern for you like it is for me then I recommend this.

Monitor

I have had this monitor for a while now, and it has never given me a problem. Great software, and pretty good colors.

Keyboard

Good keyboard overall, but I would definitely suggest not going so cheap on a keyboard. Buy cherry MX or something of equal or better quality.

Mouse

Works very well, but is a bit heavy for my taste, also with the recent addition of the Razer DeathAdder Elite, the buttons feel very small, works well.

Mouse

Very good feel for a mouse with large buttons so you will never miss click. Lightning fast response

Speakers

Eh. Works better than built in speakers; however, if you are looking into any kind of good sound quality go for something that costs a little more.

Custom

Good sound quality for the price, I recommend this, and if you want any better sound quality you will need an xlr mic. And that would add the cost of a preamp for conversion. So this is a good option.

Custom

Great microphone quality, but the sound quality is comparable to Beats solo 2 or so, so not great. If you are doing any kind of serious audio activity DO NOT SPEND LESS THAN $150 and do a ton of research.

I'm not sure if your keys are hot swappable or not, if they are, I would pick up some cherry mx on epathbuy ($40 for 90 browns.)

might wanna upgrad your monitor so you get more out of your system. your pc might output 100+ fps, but your only going to see 75

One of my monitors is 144hz, and there is no way I am going higher than that with this system
