Description

This build was to meet a current budget of $1000, with potential upgrades including a high performance GPU and NVMe M.2 SSD. The RX580 and Kingston SSD are both fine for now, but they are not on par with this build's other components.

Originally I purchased a Velocifire TKL02 keyboard which can be seen in the parts photo, but instead replaced it with a Corsair K63. The TKL02 was a great keyboard for $32, but I found it too loud despite having "brown switches". I prefer the K63's button layout and genuine Cherry Reds.

Budget builds like this dont get nearly the credit they deserve. Great build! Very clean too.

Also, +1 for pen cap.

I have it on good authority that a pen cap adds 5 fps.

Nice with the cable management and putting in tax cause that would help people who want to copy your build +1

if you ever upgrade your case i would recommend a cooler master td500, its a full atx case and comes with 3 rgb fans in the front and 1 black rear fan all for only 83 usd dollars

Great part selection, just one small tweak. I think I would've gotten a 3 pack of RGB Deepcool fans for $35. I think it is the rf120. that would shave off a couple of bucks and add RGB, which means +100fps. Nothing else to say, and I must say, that is a clean build right there with great parts selection. +1

nice build, quick question is the MoBo you're using good for overclocking?
