This was built 2 years ago and the 1050 cost $50-$100 more. The main focus of this build was to keep as cheap as possible :)
If it existed at the time, I would have used a Ryzen APU instead
Love the build. Similar to what I have done before. How is the 590?
Sure! Where are you located? dm?
Nice work on the build! I recently did mine as well!
I have been waiting for this! Nice man! It turned out really well +1
I wouldn't recommend it. They are too close. I would save for like a 1060/Rx570 or higher. That would be a better upgrade
Nah only 21 haha. It just depends on the demand for it. I am also a phone and tablet tech, so a lot of time goes into that. But I will be getting a new PC soon.
I wish you luck! It is a good industry, I have had lots of fun during my three years building PC's.
Of course! :) Have you done any ryzen build delta?
I agree, investing in the 2400g is a better alternative. Even if you do overclock the 2200g, you can't get the extra threads and better igpu that the 2400g has. Then when you save up some more money you can invest in a watercooler for the 2400g and overclock that. I saw some benchmarks online the overclocked 2200g is the same at a 2400g in game performance, but for other tasks the 2400g beats it every time.
The APU's get the best increase in performance from high speed ram, as it helps their igpu's quite a bit.
That's all good haha :) But you are correct with the RAM and not many people know about it. So hopefully others will still see your comment.
The customer did not want to overclock, yes I do know about 2666mhz ram for Zen 1st gen, but the object was for budget at the time. I sold this late last year as a custom build. On top of that I need to keep within supplier warranty, so I can't overclock even if i wanted to. I wish the Ryzen APU's were out at the time of this build though.
Wut? Does the job while keeping costs low :)
Does is matter what PSU powers what mobo? Is one setup to be assigned to a particular board or can either be used? I am planning on moving my old system into this and have it as a NAS/Server and then have a new gaming system on the ITX location.
Of course, and the liquid cooling will help the system last longer too. If you want to stay with air coolers though, I would recommend looking at the Noctua NH-D15, easily the best on market for performance. The Mugen 5 is a great cooler for its price as well as the be quiet! Dark Rock Pro 4 for noise levels, but if you are investing long term I would recommend getting the best that you can afford to increase the longevity of the device.
It is honestly really easy to install AIO liquid coolers. I would highly recommend trying at least once so you get idea for future builds :) It is also a great way to get more out of your CPU.

Changed to a 500gb samsung ssd, included WiFi on mobo, EVGA FTW 1080 slightly faster and Water Cooling.
Still has $50~ to switch some components around. It is not too much of a change, but should provide a slight boost in performance and you have some more storage.
No Ryzen's boost all cores. You just need the right mobo for it (b350/x370). Asus strix is always a good option too as they have better power delivery for boost.
Thank you! :) I would recommend switch to the cpu to a 2200g as its the same price and has better performance.
hahahah. I was meaning with your description :)
Very very nice for your first gaming build. So much detail and the part choices were great! :) I hope you enjoy it!
Amazing! I have been wanting this case myself. Hopefully in the next few weeks. I hope you enjoy yours :) +1
Yeah I have noticed that on their website previously. I will have a look at tweaking your build to run a Ti variant. Thank you so much :)
Thanks Ben! I do like S340, its very good to build in. Were the CXM series not that great compared to other corsair/seasonic models though?
Thank you so much imperious! I knew you would comment haha :P I have seen some 1070ti's for a similar price are they worth getting?
Yes they have been hahaha :P
That is fair, I might change my amd option in that case. :)
Very solid. Would it be worth going with a gold rated psu for $10 more? :)
Here is an updated version with some intake fans and a change in motherboard.
I like this one, tbh this is probably the best option here, especially with the freesync option being still viable. +1 :) Sorry for being a pain with the RX 570, just having an RX 580 or 6gb 1060 is a much better option when they are pretty much the same price . Thanks for the discussion though.
No problem! :)
It is not about a fair comparison? It is about the >6GB< being a similar price to the RX 570 that you listed. Therefore the 1060 6GB should be the chosen card at that price range.
Asus - Radeon RX 570 4GB ROG STRIX Video Card $269.89 @ B&H
Zotac - GeForce GTX 1060 6GB 6GB AMP! Edition Video Card $299.99 @ Amazon
Here is a newer benchmark result https://www.techspot.com/article/1600-far-cry-5-benchmarks/
There is even this card which closes the price range even more https://pcpartpicker.com/product/TrGj4D/msi-geforce-gtx-1060-6gb-6gb-gt-ocv1-video-card-geforce-gtx-1060-6gt-ocv1
The 1300x will be a better cpu by itself. I just think that the 2200g with it's slightly higher stock performance with the addition of the igpu as an extra is a nicer investment for the same price as a 1200. https://www.notebookcheck.net/1200-vs-2200G_9324_9896.247596.0.html found a newer benchmark of the two. After having this good discussion with you. I believe that the 1200 is the choice to go with if you want a good budget cpu that can be overclocked and messed around a bit more, but to keep in mind looking into the 1300x as a longer lasting investment option. The 2200g however is the better option if you want to leave them stock and get the most for your money (iGPU, newer cpu, faster stock speed etc).
Huh, my store has never gotten a fan with the 1500x from any supplier. Maybe it's just an Australian thing. Well if you do in the USA I will remove the M9a.
I know it is not 100% but it is easy to get comparisons between cards and we are not talking about the sites anyway XD. https://www.techspot.com/review/1411-radeon-rx-570-vs-geforce-gtx-1060-3gb/
In both of those you can see that the 3gb even out performs it and the 1060 6gb is way ahead. Why not have the 6gb 1060 in your build when its the same price?
Even if you have freesync, the 1060 is a much better card for the same price. But I do agree that you could go with the 1300x as a more budget option.
Even the 3gb 1060 is more powerful.
Updated. Not sure how good those fans will be, but it seemed like a good price. I have had good experience with the older Adata SSD's so it should do the job and will have that extra space.
I just got that monitor for the 1ms response. The others I will change, the SSD was added so there would at least be an SSD. I will edit the build.
Let me know what you think :) Includes an SSD and liquid cooling.
You forgot the power supply
Well seeing as you have been given an intel option already, here is an amd alternative.
Thank you and my bad on the title XD
What is your budget and what is your location?
I have heard the opposite from other sites and reviews. And yes the 2200g only trades blows with a dedicated card installed. I will have to do some more research though, as I had not heard of the heat spreader issues.
The ryzen 1200 is the better option, but if you are still looking I would recommend the Ryzen 3 2200g. It is the same price as the 1200, but has better performance and temps as well as an iGPU. The cpu will also outperform the 1200 and 1300x with a dedicated card as well. Only issue can be getting a decent mobo, depending on what your local area has and for what price.
Nice HTPC build with no need of a dedicated card. The Vega 11 iGPU out performs the GT 1030 and is almost equal to an RX 550. The CPU side is also very powerful and should handle anything you need. With having an APU you save a lot in power consumption and size. WiFi is also included with the motherboard as a bonus. The Inwin Choppin is an awesome little case, I would highly recommend checking out some of the builds people have made with it on this site.
