Description

This build was for my son to accompany his love of Fortnite. All in all the build went fine, just had to get an adapter for the RGB strip I used since his case was not up to par, and changed some side panel things once the design got going.

It was a fun build that my son helped choose the parts for and did some of the build & painting leg work. He will be using the build for Fortnite and random other games so it will work wonderfully for him.

I did not and will not be running any numbers on the build since it was more for visual appeal and basic gaming functionality than anything else.

Part Reviews

CPU

Pretty good CPU for under $100. It plays most games that I threw at it on medium to high settings at 60fps. I would not expect any magic with some top tier AAA titles on higher settings though.

Motherboard

The board is a pretty good board with decent features for the size factor. I did have some issues with random usb ports being disabled but got it working again.

Memory

Love this ram and pretty much any other memory from G.Skill. I did have to RMA one of the sticks after it stopped working a few weeks in, but it was a very easy exchange.

Storage

I have owned a few of these and past them from build to build. They are not the fastest but for the cost, they are a great value.

Video Card

I really like this card. It was super affordable and the build quality is really nice.

Case

You get what you paid for. It is a simple case with decent build quality for under $50. It was still surprisingly easy to build and cable manage in.

Power Supply

It does what it does. One star off for ugly ketchup and mustard wires lol. The wires are easy to work with.
