£1000~ the Rig + The Monitor + Headset + Keyboard/Speakers/Mouse add it up to around £1200 :)
Ryzen 5 1600, So far so good! Clocks to 3.8 on Stock Voltage, can get it to 3.9, Not trying more as Mine happens to be a "Made in Malaysia" which just means it was soldered there, either way no point as I am using the Stock Cooler, Running it at 3.6 for now just to have a low power consumption while having a pretty good system overall, even with a handicapped Ram as you will read below.
Wraith Cooler Damn it works just fine, not too noisy and keeps it cool enough.
MSI B350M Gaming Pro Decent build, works just fine, debug leds are a great help, helped me identify fast the issues with my first Ram and HDD.
Drevo X1 SSD 240GB The Drevo X1 I got on Ebay a while back, and its been reliable when testing builds for customers, but as I am retiring off that for a while I decided to make my own gambles and try to make a budget Ryzen build, so that SSD made its way into it.
RX Vega 56 from Powercolor, Amazing Undervolter, very efficient card, and easy to Overclock as well when needed with Radeon Wattman, Freesync monitor is happy with this card!
AOC G2260VWQ6 21.6 Monitor, its a 75hz refresh rate monitor with freesync, its really good for its price point, its the second I get from AOC for a personal build and its amazing.
Kingston HyperX Cloud Stinger Headset Tested its audio quality and it is pretty damn good for its price, surprised as most reviews I found were older, but it truly is a nice budget headset (In my eyes its budget because I got cheap, and also because most decent gaming headsets tend to be way more expensive)
Deepcool DQ 750ST really solid PSU, No Coil Whine from my Vega and while I had my R9 Fury it also was barely audible thanks to this quality PSU.
NZXT S340 Black and Red Case, I switched my previous case (read below) for it, WAY BETTER cable management and Air Cooling.
- Not much to complain, only really can listen to my CPU Fan when OC'ed at stock its silent, same goes for the GPU, and I lowered the intake fans to match.
Negative: The NZXT S340 is a great case, but annoying to swap the Solid Hard Drives without removing the PSU.
Updated Review at the End of 2018: Won't post much yet, but All I can say is Ryzen has really aged WELL after a while, it keeps getting better, better bios, better Ram Clocking possible, Great Bang for Back, Then and Now!
Also during the time (A year and a half) I have had this build I swapped my GPU 3x (RX 480 to R9 Fury to RX Vega 56) and I must say the Ryzen is doing its work well, will substitute the 1600 once 3rd Gen Ryzen comes out (at a good deal a few months later) to get that extra clock speed!
Build Changes History:
Edit 6: Added Darth Vader into the build <breaths>
Edit 5: Swapped to the Red Dragon RX Vega 56 from Powercolor (Previous Card was a Fury Tri-X from Sapphire, and it was amazing!) Great Deal :D
Edit 4: Swapped to a Fury Tri-X for now until Vega or Navi comes, awesome performance for just £40 more then the RX 480 I had originally, it had Really amazing Performance!
Edit 3: XFX XT 600W 80+ Bronze, Was my previous PSU, but when I gave away my RX 480 I decided to also give the PSU away and bought myself the Deepcool 750 80+ Gold Certified one.
Edit 2: Swapped my Corsair Dominator for G Skill Flare X 16 GB (2x 8) Good Overclocking Ram, Then Gave them to my Wife and swapped in some Corsair Vengeance with LED's to better fit my case!
Edit 1: Swapped to NZXT Source Case instead and gave my previous case to my little bro.
A very cheap 6 Core 12 Thread processor, well priced at release, amazingly cheap nowadays, if you are on a budget and find this CPU for a good price then go for it, I would recommend the 2600 or the 3600 when released for bigger clock speeds but if you do not care much about that then the R5 1600 has plenty of power for every day needs.
A decent and Cheap AM4 Motherboard, as its a 350m model there are newer and better revisions and boards, but for the time (at Ryzen Release) this did it's job pretty well and even has troubleshoot LEDs to warn you if there is a issue with your Ram/GPU/HDD!
Easy to tune, got @3200 with it, and the RED LEDs on the model are beautiful in my case.
Been buying Drevo SSD's for a while now, they are not as fast as Samsung SSD's for example but it's read speed is pretty good and can match most SSD's on the market while being cheaper.
The ultimate budget 1TB HDD Hard Drive, reliable.
The Red Dragon is a amazing piece from Powercolor, the cut down card added with it's Triple Fan Cooler design makes it pretty well cooled for a fan cooled card, in average it is 5-8 degrees colder on the same workload's then my partners Blower Cooled RX Vega 56!
Beautiful Case, easy to cable manage, only real annoyance is having to pull back the power supply every time I wish to swap or add a Hard Drive.
Plenty of space for your GPU and if it sags you can add a Bracket or place a Funko Pop!
Never bought one prior to this from Deepcool on the builds I make for others, so I risked it and am pleasantly surprised, it's a very good power supply and above all its gold certified.
Had the licence from my previous build, so satisfied that Microsoft allows the key to be associated to your Microsoft Account these days.
Freesync, can't go back on that.
Best Budget Gaming Headset, can't even think of another similar priced one that has its quality.
