Description

My first PC build, on a $750-850 budget. This replaced my old Celeron J3060 PC.

I use the machine for general purposes, but mainly it's used for video editing. So far, it's doing very well for what I want it to do. The only problem so far is that I accidentally chipped off a piece of the motherboard (next to the CMOS) while clearing the CMOS (I was OCing the RAM.)

I had actually planned this build in December 2017, which initially had a 1050 Ti, but due to increasing costs, I had to switch out to the RX 560.

Part Reviews

CPU

Great CPU, does very well for the job.

Motherboard

Decent enough motherboard. When I first tried to OC on this board it underclocked my CPU.

Memory

Good, fast RAM, what else do I have to say?

Storage

My first SSD. I was blown back by my new boot times and everything felt so much more responsive. Not the fastest but it's still pretty good.

Storage

Good HDD for mass storage.

Video Card

Good GPU, plays games fine at medium settings. Not as much value at this price, though.

Case

Nice, sleek, and minimal case. Only problem is that there's not much space for drives.

Power Supply

I've heard good things about SeaSonic PSUs, and this one is no exception. However, it's a bit outdated.

Custom

Standard 1080p monitor.
