It was a toss-up between the 1500x and the 1600. Mainly, this is for gaming, and art is secondary. So, I went with the cheaper option that had the slightly higher base clock speeds.
I guess in hindsight I could've splurged an extra $30 for the 1600, but I'm committed now.
Thank you. I think the GPU looks great, and so far it's performing excellently. =D
Talk about a powerhouse here.
I kind of wish I got into making my PC earlier, because I've always heard nice things about the FX cpu line, but I just went with the new Ryzen line. You thinking about upgrading or possibly making a build with a Ryzen cpu?
That's also a nice size case, too. The Noctua cooler however, is ugly; but I guess it gets the cooling job done. XD
Nice little powerhouse build. I especially love the case. It certainly has a nice Storm Trooper vibe, especially with Captain Phasma on top. =P
Looks like a nice little build, especially if she doesn't game a lot and mainly uses it for basic everyday use.
That price too. Was that the price then or is that the price of the parts now? =O
And I wish I can get good at cable management like that. XD
Thank you. I was on a budget, so I tried to balance out the price for performance.
As for the monitor, I wanted a bigger one (maybe a 27"); but I had to make cuts somewhere. Finding one that was more than 60hz and had Freesync for under $200, and an Asus at that, for under $200 was a steal to me. =D
Thank you. =D
