Description

First of all i want to thank this site it helped me a lot on building this PC as well my friends and some youtubers, Because I didn't have any idea on building PC without them xD .

This build for university work and playing games such as LOL, Fortnite, and few others.

I always wanted a PC and hated going to internet cafe and spent a lost of money to play LOL for 4 years. but I had bad internet area so had to delay it.

I am proud I finally made it even if it little bit late for me but I made it, Also I am satisfied with the PC. Thank you guys for reading my build I hope you enjoyed it with the reviews, please if you have any question or comment that will help me write it down :) .

  • No OC for now maybe if i bought liquid cooler :/
  • My bios Updated to 3.1 it made a lot of difference with the boot up
  • Near future Upgrades: extra SSD storage, 2K 144 Hz monitor.

Part Reviews

CPU

To be honest I wanted the cheapest PC that do the job and I was thinking about Ryzen 5 1600 but found this 2600x with the asrock B450m pro4 combo in newegg in a good deal less than 40$ so why not paying little for much newer better CPU.

Motherboard

I wanted B450m when I saw it with this motherboard with the cpu combo why not, its fine do the job I had problem with cpu fans headers but manged to plug it, also the ram sticks its says in the manual to leverage both sides but only do it for one side of the slot I was going to brake the board because of this.

Memory

ram is just a ram this one fast looks cool and cheap con no RGB :(

Storage

I am satisfied with this storage for OS and few essential games and programs, I compared it with a lot of others storage SSD HDD m.2 this PILOT perform in top 20.

Video Card

I have the XS version I put this one because I didn't find it here in the site, the GPU made me crazy because i didn't know what i need so I compared a lot of products starting AMD ( 570, 580, 590, Vega 56) and the green team (1060, 1070+TI, 1080+TI, 2060, 2070, 2080+TI) I saw a lot of comparison in websites, youtubers, and graphs everything. At the beginning I decided to buy 590 its cheap and performance is reasonable but a friend of mine told me pay an extra like 150$ and get the RTX 2060 it perform 30% better than 590 and it will last longer.

the only con there is no RGB you could made it MSI :(

Case

This case small looks cool and cheap I like it very much.

Power Supply

It provide 500W to my PC and its enough even if I plan to get liquid cooler CPU. The only con I cant plug out the extra cables that i don't need.

Operating System

Nothing to talk here.

Monitor

a friend of mine gave me this monitor to use it for now because I am out of cash to buy new one. I am planing in near future to buy 2K 144Hz monitor :(

Keyboard

This keyboard functional and cheap also RGB with 8 mood option the only con for me it does not have Arabic layout since I am Arabic person :/ I get some lag if press combo keys fast

Mouse

The grip + size + price is perfect plus RGB with 5 moods.

We built almost the same thing, mine is being shipped and planning on building it this weekend when I get some time. I actually forgot to get some fans, but since we went with the same CPU and GPU, how hot does it get in the case?
