As the title states, this is my first ever PC build that'll be primarily for gaming but also for schoolwork and general usage. My computer before this was a 10+ year old machine that used a Intel core duo 2.4ghz 4gb of DDR2 RAM and a couple of old hard drives. In February I faced the blue screen of death due to the motherboard being old and now broken. After a few months with no action to repair it taking place I decided to replace the system with some money I saved and so after a couple months of research I ordered my parts and waited. In my new build I am using the old drives as well as my Gigabyte R7 360 from my old system while I await for the RX 580 I've pre-ordered off Amazon to be delivered which may take up to a month. It's been able to run the games I play with the dual core and with the Ryzen they're able to run at higher quality. I mostly play Total War games (warhammer in particular) as well as Rainbow Six Siege and a few others.
My first build was without error but with difficulty.
Update: The Rx 580 8gb pulse arrived at last and from Amazon for £102.50!!!
Works great, much better than my previous but does run a bit hot with the stock for mine.
Like the neutral colour theme and have no problems or issues with it
Was able to get pretty cheap and runs at 2667mhz
My first SSD. Am not going back
Much better than the R7 360 I had before! Runs quiet and cool with very good gaming performance!
Good value. Not perfect as there are a few quirks with it but I like the look and it has all the features I need
7 year warranty, gold efficiency, fully modular, 550W. More than enough for my needs and like the silent eco mode.
