Description

This was my first attempt at building a gaming rig. Didn't want to spend to much money for my first time. 1 thing I didn't know was that the motherboard lock the frequency of the RAM based on the CPU you have, so because I have an i3 my max RAM frequency is locked to 2400mhz. Something else to note is to make sure you have a flash drive with the latest motherboard LAN driver update. I would recommend buying a better case because the cable management is quite difficult.

I'd like to see more build pictures instead of boxes. Just saying.

True...should have thought about that, but I will be posting a time lapse video of the build on my YT channel so I can drop the link when it's ready

I'll open it up and post some internal pics as well as some screenshots of the open parts from my time lapse build video I'm making.

I would've picked up a Ryzen 3 2200G/B450 combo, used the stock cooler, dropped to a lower capacity SSD, and then upped the GPU to an RX 580, but aside from that, this isn't a bad build at all, price-wise.

Price isn't completely accurate, got some things on sale

Interesting. Was the i3 system cheaper than the Ryzen 3 equivalent?

No, not at all. I was just saying that this build was a bit cheaper than shown. I actually started looking into making a mini itx build using a Ryzen 3 2200G.

Clean that room dude! XD

But this looks like a great PC. Not sure why you chose a 1TB SSD for your first PC and not a better GPU but otherwise, i wish you the best of luck and this has a lot of upgrade potential.

I wanted the space for games since I tend to switch between many and didn't want to keep deleting and downloading. Based on the research I did this GPU paired well with this CPU but my biggest problem is that I get Impulsive when I get excited so I wound up buying quite a few of the parts before doing any real research on them.

Also...YOUR NOT MY DAD!! Hahahahaha!!!

Nice PC! I agree with the whole ssd thing, but this should serve you well for now, until you get bored with it, that is. If thats one thing you learn, a PC is never finished!
