Description

I built this PC for gaming at 1080p/60hz and it does a fantastic job! The last PC I built was an i5 2500k with a GTX 760 I think, which was a while ago.

This PC is definitely capable of 1080p 144hz on some games at medium-low settings, so you should invest in a 144hz monitor if you don't have one. Great build!

Thanks, but I have 4 1080p monitors just lying around, so I doubt I’ll be buying another monitor anytime soon. 1080p on ultra settings is all I need for now lol.

Solid build. Just finished my build with the same CPU as yours.

I'm curious why you went with the 1660.

Well it was just a personal preference, since I’ve only owned NVIDIA cards for the past 25 years. I could have have went a few different directions since I’m only gaming at 1080p. Didn’t want to spend the extra money for a 2060 super either, plus the 1660Ti was right in the sweet spot for me.

Nice okay! I've considered the 1660Ti too.

Nice build, but I’m curious why you went with the 970 evo rather than the evo plus?

I did get the 970 evo plus, it’s in the picture.

I was looking at the part list where it says 970 evo...

why did you get an asus wifi 5 card, and did you actually pay $100 for it/or had it laying around? If not and you wanted wifi, why not just get the ASUS TUF x570 board for the same price as the gigabyte board that comes with wifi built in?

The ASUS board wasn't out yet at any retailers when I purchased my parts. I was looking at every board with built in wifi first. Every PC I have built in the past has been all ASUS, so trust me I am an ASUS guy but it wasn't available anyway. My gaming laptop is an ASUS ROG. I don't think the built in wifi would give me the speeds I get with this one, but I could be wrong. Either way I'm satisfied with the speeds I get with my pc in the basement. Speedtest

nice build i am looking to make almost the same big ticket upgrades and have already bought a 1660ti. I'm curious about the overclocking preformance with this cpu cooler and the mobo for the ram if youre doing any of that. thanks

How fast is this pc on fortnite epic settings? Planning on a r5 3600 gtx 1660ti build

You will have no issues playing Fortnite on epic settings, although I play Apex Legends. I may have some footage, I’ll check when I get home on the morning.

Hey I'm thinking about getting the be quiet dark rock skin, would you recommend it and do you think it's capable of overclocking the 3600 to all core 4.2 GHz??? Thanks

Reply is a bit late but, yes, The Dark Rock Slim would be just enough for a 3600(x) if you were to be overclocking.
