Description

Out of respect for the FX line of AMD Processors that I used in my first build, I named my first true "gaming" build after that architecture. I chose many of these parts because of the aesthetics, as I have been playing on bottom-end hardware for the past 6 years and I don't need the best of the best. My goal was to create a rig that was visually appealing and could play any games I wanted at 1080p 60-120 fps.

This is my first brand-new computer and first SSD, and the experience is amazing. I can tinker with the overclocking of the CPU and graphics card and I really enjoy the RGB elements of the case, motherboard and RAM.

Part Reviews

CPU

Blazing fast, very good price to performance, and is unlocked for overclocking!

Motherboard

Looks beautiful, Gigabyte rgb software works well, and allows for plenty of expansion. WiFi is fast and overclocking is stable!

Memory

Looks and performs fantastic. Corsair ICUE software is phenomenal.

Storage

Very very fast. Moving from an HDD, this is lightning quick.

Video Card

Looks badass, puts out lots of frames, noise and heat. The graphics card equivalent of an American Muscle car.

Case

Great to work in, looks amazing and includes so many features for only 80 dollars. A no-brainer.

Power Supply

Works well, although the 24 pin motherboard power cable is a bit short. Would not recommend for a Full ATX case.

Hey Duarte (or Samuel), I would change your username if I were you. Having your email as your username is probably not the best idea...

Nice build, good to see Vega 56s still popular and competing as the best midrange card out there.

At least the Vega 56 puts out Piledriver-like heat

How were you able to plug the 4 fans to the motherboard?
