Basically, an impromptu black friday computer build for a full gaming pc with peripherals and monitor for under 500, but with full upgrade-ability to the 3000 series Ryzen cpu's when they come out. This computer setup features: -75hz Freesync 1080p monitor -2.4 & 5ghz wifi and bluetooth -Mechanical keyboard with rgb and low latency mouse with at least an a9800 chipset or better -Decent storage with room for expansion -Support for dual monitors with no gaming impact
Final cost was $453
The heart of the build. With an MSI motherboard, you can overclock these to 3.9ghz at 1.4v, but the gigabyte DS3H b450 motherboard doesnt support it :(
Havent run into any gaming bottlenecking issues with an rx 570.
(1/12/2019) The cpu is now overclockable on the gigabyte, Asrock, Asus, Msi motherboards, and was able to hit 4.0 ghz with an fsb and multiplier overclock. Performs similarly when overclocked to a ryzen 3 1200 at stock speeds
Great motherboard for the price, even worked with ram not listed on its compatibility list at better speeds than stock with no voltage or latency increase. Was unable to overclock the processor due to the 200ge being "locked".
Installed with an athlon 200ge, no issues even though it was not listed as compatible with the motherboard.
Works, uses sata II not sata III, but that shouldnt deter you because no mechanical hard drive will use over 3gbps.
Managed to get this for 134 dollars on BF. Was far cheaper than any 1050 ti, supports freesync. Performs well, love the silent fan feature, and rgb led.
No complaints. Don't know what the other reviews say about bad cable management, as long as you think your cable routes ahead its a breeze.
Actually feels quality for the money, and is more than sufficient for the low power draw system. Hopefully it lasts.
Definitely better quality than expected for an $8.50 cent mouse.
Ended up getting the "rgb" version of this keyboard, very satisfying mechanical keyboard with really good media functions and options for the keyboard.
"ngff" wifi card that works in the m.2 slot in the motherboard. Does not come with antenna.
Really good monitor for money, could not find a cheaper freesync monitor with good reviews.
