Description

This was my first complete PC build. I got the case with a motherboard, cpu, ram, and gpu already inside, so I replaced all of that to create the PC I have now. I use this PC mainly for gaming and it has worked perfectly. I am planning on replacing my PSU and my GPU since I recently got a new 1440p monitor and haven't been really able to utilize it since I only have a 1050ti. The CPU was at a great price and is able to overclock to 3.8 GHz with only little modification to the voltage and doesn't get too hot even with the stock cooler. I guess I went a little overkill with the ram although it was actually from a relative who had no use for it since they upgraded their PC. This is my first build so if you want to give me tips on what I can do for upgrades in the future that would be greatly appreciated.

Part Reviews

CPU

Great CPU. Handles games well and overclocks to 3.8 GHz with little modification to the voltage

Motherboard

Great and cheap motherboard, have had no issues with overclocking, and did well for my first build

Memory

Great and fast. Simple as that.

Storage

Does well but I've had some issues with these HDDs crashing. Otherwise a good budget option

Video Card

Handles 1080p like a beast and has a nice small form factor, which is great for smaller but also budget builds

Case

Not really great cable management and no tempered glass, but otherwise has worked well for my gaming rig

Power Supply

Does what it needs to do and does it well. Has no issues

Operating System

Would give five stars, but the ads and privacy issues are really annoying

Hello im going to pair my actual GTX 1050 Ti to a new Ryzen 5 2600, Right now i have a EVGA 430W 80+ PSU. You think that my PSU could handle this update?

I would actually advise you get at least a 500w power supply with at least 80+ Bronze certification. The fan is loud on the one I have and I'm planning on replacing it since I'm actually doing upgrades for this PC. I think it would work short-term, but long term you want to go with a more powerful and reliable power supply.
