Description

I decide some months ago that i needed a new system. My old laptop has been showing signs that it might croak at any time. At first I was thinking about a gaming laptop but, the more i thought about it the less sense it made. I wanted something that I would be able to upgrade over time and I also enjoy small projects. The main use of this machine would be for gaming and entertainment( Connected to a 1080p Tv). My old setup is an xbox 360, a 5 year old Toshiba A6 laptop and a Dell Latitude i7 that use for work. I decided to go with Ryzen because of price and performance. This is my first build and I'm still adding to it. More photos and details will be added soon.

I haven't done much gaming with is as yet ( still playing around with different settings and looking to add a few other parts). I ran MSI kombustor and it gave a 120-125 1080p and 160-211fps 720p ( I've been doing a lot of tinkering in MSI afterburner

Nice, I got that case too! I'm planning to turn it into a test bench :)

I love this case. The modular design is awesome, take off the sides, flip the front IO in any direction. Only thing that was trcky was cable management

The motherboard and ram looks so cool together!

Thanks. Originally I wanted to get the mortar titanium and add the Team Nighthawks rgb ram. But i think I like the dark metallic look better.

I ran MSI kombustor stress test and benchmarks and it gave a 100-125 1080p and 160-211fps 720p. The only game I've played so far is PES 2019 on all high settings, the game locked to 60fps.

Thanks. The plan is to get a 2 TB HD. I had originally bought an nvme but the mobo doesn't support nvme, only m.2. I recycled my SSD when I realized that I would have to return the nvme.

The B450 Mortar very much does support NVMe. Where did you get that idea?

Being the noob that I am, I bought the type that didn't fit my board

wat other mobo would you suggest? also what is nvme? i know the basics and some more of pc's but not much more

Nvme is small for factor SSD similar to an m.2 SSD . Concerning mobos, I went with the B450-M because I wanted something for an M-Atx case. So i guess it depends on what cpu you want to use, form factor of your case, budget and aesthetics. There's a titanium version of this mobo thats white but, it's sells pretty quickly. If the titanium was in stock i would have bought it at the time.

It does have NVMe support. He just bought an 860 EVO when he needed to buy a 970 EVO, which is listed as supported for this board on MSI's website. Lots B450 Mortar builds on this site have NVMe drives.

I thought so myself. I was so excited when i saw that there was a good deal on a 256gb nvme at microcenter

Nvme is twice the price of SATA and for boot and load times it's not any faster than a SATA SSD. You'd just be wasting money on it unless you transfer large files on a daily basis for professional or semi-professional use.

Exactly what I was about to say. Both types have significantly dropped in price over the past few months but the value of SATA SSDs is insane.

You're right, price to performance a regular SSD is the better option.
