Upgraded from an old, passed down, Jerry-rigged, mining PC which ran AMD 7800's. Decided I wanted something in the lower budgeting region that can handle what I need it to at decent FPS 1080p.
I went with the Ryzen 5 2600 as it is a pretty capable CPU with an affordable price. I'm not looking into overclocking anything yet so this was also the perfect choice for me.
I went with the RX580 as again, it is affordable and capable. I went back and forth between getting a 1060 or the RX580, but I believe the dx12 support and additional 2GB of VRam gave the RX580 the edge in my decision. Plus it fits in nicely with the AMD build.
Given that I'm running a Ryzen, I went with the MSI B450 as it is a solid mobo choice for an AMD build.
Went with 16GB dual channel DDR4-3200MHz ram because Ryzen CPUs benefit from speedy bois. I might have to download more RAM in the future.
Phanteks makes beautiful , sleek, low profile cases in my opinion, so I went with the P400 TG edition. It was a close decision between the Phanteks P400 and a number of NXZT's cases.
Building this was a great experience. Im actually eager to upgrade or even continue more builds in the future. But for now, she'll be used for handling some light to moderate gaming.
Really gets the job done at an affordable price. The stock cooler does its job well.
Great for Ryzen CPUs. The dim slots were a little difficult to get the ram inserted into. Other than that, it's a great performing and looking mobo!
Speedy ram and a good price. Looks sleek and will be a nice low profile look to match any build.
Good price, does it's job.
Works well, plenty of space, affordable.
I don't think this is the best brand choice for a video card but it does it's job. Not many instructions out of the box but it is a solid card.
Included interior lighting. Very sleek and appealing look. Great quality dust filters. Layout is near perfect for wire easy management.
Powers everything smoothly. Eco mode is a nice addition to be efficient on power. Fully modular. The cables are high quality and pleasant looking to match any build design.
