Description

Hey, so I've recently built this pc with the help of a friend and some others. Turns out, everything worked out perfectly! When trying to boot first try there was no display but turns out it was the graphics cord that wasn't plugged in properly, lol. Tbh this pc isn't for me and it's for sale now and hoping this will be a job of mine. 1 pc every week is the income I need. Anyways beautiful rig for a beautiful price for us canadians :D. I've learnt a lot from this first build and the next one will prob be a lot easier since I know a lot more then before. Especially since this one took 2 days to finish. Was stressful since I didn't have a Phillips screwdriver and half the time building this I've been dealing with screws falling all over the place, but I loved the feeling when I finished the build and then this really good feeling hit. Anyways all's good and Im proud of this pc!

UPDATE : Sold on Facebook Marketplace in a month without gpu for $450 + $25 mail-in rebate that I still haven't received!

Part Reviews

Motherboard

After reading bad reviews I worried, but it works perfectly with my ryzen 3 2200g! I have no problems with this board and I'm happy with my purchase. Comes at a good price too. I'm no overclocker though, so idk about the overclocking capabilities on this board.

Case

Lots of features for the price. A side window, 3 fans(1 BLUE!), spacey, good cable management all for a great price! Although the material is crappy, side panel is already bent and ssd cage door is broken. Not getting one of these again.

Power Supply

It's quiet, cheap, and has sturdy quality.

My RX 570 didn't recieve full power, wasn't a problem only a white light blinking every few minutes. I'm not knocking off a star just because it may be my cheap motherboard instead. Ketchup & Mustard cables don't look that bad.

Overall Corsair really do make high quality psus but I recommend at least their CX lineup., just to be safe.

Very nicely done. Goes to show how inexpensive gaming at 1080p has gotten.

You need a magnetic screw tray. It will change your life. Nice budget build.

You don't have to pay for it you can use the free version instead.

Is the free version gonna be preinstalled when i get these parts? Or will I need to have a os disc ready?

No, you'd have to buy a usb drive, go on a laptop, search up mediahttps://www.microsoft.com/en-ca/software-download/windows10 and click download tool now. This will put windows 10 on your usb, you take out usb and put the usb drive in your pc and press the power button and that's it! You need at least a 8gb usb drive to do this.

I have a very similar build to yours and am in love with how it performs for the money. I got my rx 580 8gb for an absolute steal at $130 USD, Shipped. I even got mine all put together and running around $500. But overall I know this thing can crank out some frames.

was wondering how hot does the gpu get while gaming?

Usually hovers around the 50s, sometimes goes into the 60s

Can you go cheaper for 1080p? This should be a template for budget gaming build.

Not too shabby! I'd like to do what you're talking about, but only as a self-sustaining hobby. I can't justify keeping more PCs but I'd like to keep building them.

If you don't have a proper screwdriver yet, consider one of the nylon type that won't scuff up the black finish many screws have. I'm looking for one now.

Thanks, yeah turns out I had the proper screwdriver all along but didn't know at the time and used a regular one lol. All those hours of falling screws I could've saved..

Unfortunately my pc is STILL on the market :( and I got so desperate it's now sitting at the price I built it for.. and still nobody! I don't know what to do, maybe it's because I'm only selling it on facebook marketplace but who knows.

Well yours is a more reasonable investment than mine, & more likely to be in demand. I started out asking only 80% of my costs because of the open-box condition, but honestly I'm not holding my breath for $1332 USD. It's a long shot. Your economical approach is what I'll be trying next. So far I've listed on Facebook Marketplace, craigslist, and the OfferUp app. I know there are others. . . .

To stand apart from the crowd, try unique modifications. Spiral Case Mods has some excellent examples: https://pcpartpicker.com/user/SpiralCaseMods/
