Description

This is the completion of my build that took almost a year to finish, but there will always be room for tweaking and improvement. I bought 80% percent of the parts here in Perú, and as a third world country the parts were incredibly expensive, but the prices on the list are what the parts are actually going for in the US. The only parts bought in the US are the Ryzen 7 3700X (that replaced my 2200G), the Noctua NH-U12S plus another NF-F12, and the LG 27GL83A-B that replaced my crappy 1366x768 60hz TV.

I'm going to use my PC for photo editing and gaming, so I chose the parts that would serve both purposes equally good and I expect to have this build for years to last.

Hope y'all like the build but any comments are appreciated!

Part Reviews

CPU

Eight cores sixteen threads, overclockable, under 500 dollars, pretty decent ipc. Handles 1440p gaming and photo editing like butter in a hot toast.

CPU Cooler

Looks sick? check. Performs well? check. Dead silent? check. Reliable? check. Thanks for chromax Noctua, sincerely, everyone.

Motherboard

Feature packed, cheap, performs great, easy BIOS and good looks.

Memory

Simple, kinda fast, had some problems with XMP sometimes, but other than that it´s pretty damn great.

Storage

No cables, less problems. Performs great but nothing exceptional, you could get an NVME drive with the same capacity at around the same price.

Video Card

Thicc, cool and has a great performance. Handles 1440p @144hz gaming pretty damn good, one of my favorite parts from my build.

Case

Matte black, tempered glass panel and not terribly big. Looks as gorgeous as the that I bought it, comes with three 120mm fans, not the best but very appreciated.

Power Supply

Lots of powah and black cables but now I regret not getting a fully modular PSU (just for the looks), if that isn't a problem to you then get this and play it safe.

Case Fan

Added it to my NH-U12S, perfect as expected.

Monitor

Where do I begin? Fast response times, IPS, great colors, flat screen, nice aesthetics, little to none ips glow or backlight bleed, all under $400. If you don't need the wide color gamut of the 27GL850-B and want to save a few hundred bucks get this. Bye bye trashy 1366x768 60hz TV, hello beautiful 2560x1440 144hz monitor.

Keyboard

TKL, black and has RGB. It is really loud, it needs better stabilizers, and I get sometimes a springy noise, also the font is too "gamery" for my taste, but it can't be beaten for the price.

Mouse

Perfect size and form, smooth texture, nice buttons, great sensor and of course it has RGB, really nice for FPS games, and the weight isn't a problem. Kind of a fingerprint magnet but it is easy to clean. I'm surprised how good it is for the price, and there's even and "FPS" version with a better sensor and optical switches for a few bucks more. One of my favorite parts.

It didn't so I had to use a Ryzen 3 2200G that I used like a "holder". Updated the BIOS to the first one to be "Ryzen 3000 ready" but it had some issues so now I'm running the latest BIOS and runs great.

No te conozco pero vivo en un pais tercer mundista y a mi me conviene más comprarlo por amazon o en otras paginas y pagar un servicio de casillero que basicamente es para que me lo traigan aqui y solo pago el servicio, impuestos y aduanas. El peso al flete es 3.17$ por libra creo? pero que bueno que tengas sitios para comprar partes en tu pais

Sorry about this spanish comment guys you guys can translate it if you want

Si consideré comprar bastantes cosas por Amazon o Newegg pero conversando con mis viejos prefirimos comprar la mayoría de cosas acá por temas de garantía y de facilidad, tenemos lugares y páginas donde venden partes pero igual los precios son altos comparados a los de Estados Unidos, pero es mejor que nada e incluso los precios estan bajando lentamente pero progresivamente.

Sorry for the spanish comment too lol.
