Description

So I got my friend into battlegrounds and he was really enjoying it even though he was playing on the same PC we built at the end of highschool (2011?) So he was getting around 19fps average on everything low and decided its time to get a new PC, so on our next day off we just drove and picked up parts from multiple stores between my house and his house so most parts here you can find a little bit cheaper if you take your time building this PC.

At first we were just aiming for spending the least amount of money possible while still targeting 1080p 60fps ultra, then he saw what PCs have become; tempered glass, memory aesthetics, gpu aesthetics, RGB lighting and RGB fans so we probably spent $200 on things we didnt need but they just looked great.

All prices in AUD

FYI the PSU we used i could not find the webpage or on any actual store sites but it was a coolermaster CX storm? 450w and theres a deepcool RGB350 kit in there that was $20

Nice build, it's great to see a fellow Australian PCPP user. +1

Hopefully he doesn't mind the brightness. I had a bright computer back in the day. I regretted making it like that. The lights in your periferal vision got so distracting that I ended up unplugging the fans and front panel lights.

The rgb controller lets you adjust the brightness so we were just messing around with that for a while

I also forgot to mention that the glass is tinted and its just the crappy smart phone camera that is making it appear so bright

M8 don't get me started, I'm terrible with stuff like that, I started with a budget PC and then went all out with SSDs only, rgb lighting, AIO cooler for my stock CPU, rgb memory, rgb case fans and im about to order a custom backplate for a 1060 3gb haha.

Also I want to buy a case that costs the same amount as my GPU ^

that case has got some good looks already but if you have found "the" one then who am I to tell you to not do it ?!

That's not my case, my computer is in a Deepcool Kendomen, was awesome to start with but now i want a tempered glass case.

First time seeing build with RX500 series.. Good job mate?Does the GPU performed well??

Cant really tell, he only has a 60hz monitor so we couldn't really gauge the gpu, never dropped bellow 60 fps so main goal achieved

I have a similar build and I can say that the RX580 is a really nice card. Performs well at 1080p and arguably even better at 1440p. Great value with this card.

Nice looking build and great choice of parts. I used the same CPU, GPU, mobo, and RAM in my first build. Your buddy should get good performance if he ever upgrades to a 1440p 60+hz monitor. This rig can handle it.

really u rounded all that up with a 450W power supply..... is that enough for this build isn't that a bit less ? correct me if I am wrong also what's the difference between a semi and full modular power supply's....

Its a 65w cpu and the gpu never uses more than 200w, i only use a 400w in my own system, you dont need crazy 800w and 1250w psus anymore theyre just useless, even a 550w will handle an oc gtx 1080ti and oc cpu
