Finally built a chill gaming pc for the time being. Would've gone crazier but I decided to put off my plans for a crazy build, with the new ryzen rumors I'm going to build a cool gaming pc for myself after those release. I only really play rocket league, and military games (insurgency, squad, pubg). So this'll get me through it until then.

Are people replacing the Ryzen 3 1200 with the 2200g now?

richonnem1 submitter 1 Build 2 points 1 month ago

I don't know, it was on sale lol.

bvandey5 1 point 1 month ago

i mean at the price and performance i think its tough to not go with the 2200g, especially on a budget

How do you manage to get a Pc that cheap? Teach me please

bvandey5 1 point 1 month ago

hey man I am curious to how this system runs for you. I am looking to do a very similar build (at least the same GPU, MOBO, and CPU config) and was wondering how this would handle a stream and some light gaming (such as fortnite). Id probably only use it to manage a xbox 1 twitch stream at first, but im looking to maybe switch to PC gaming if it feels right. If you ever play fortnite, could you maybe comment and say what your avg frames are on certain settings? The help would be great man, if not, build looks good! Nice work

The system runs real smooth. I gets 180+ fps in fortnite for me. I don't play too many demanding games (Rocket League, PUBG, Squad) but it pushes out good smooth gameplay. I'd say getting the 2600 would be better but this config is real solid. Also new ryzen chips come out this year and this is a good build to get you by until those come out.

how was it to work with the case?

richonnem1 submitter 1 Build 1 point 18 days ago

The only issue I ran into is mounting my ssd. The power cord for the ssd was a pain to put in and I had to bend it a good amount but it's working fine. That's why i didn't bother to get another ssd instead got a m.2. It was a really easy case once I removed the HDD drive cage.

Dude I have like the exact same build

I would have gone with one 8gb stick or ram because that way you can upgrade easier. But with your motherboard having 4 ram slots you probably wont need more than the 16GB you can have. Other than that it is a great build pretty similar to mine that i made around a year and a half ago. Mine contains a ryzen 3, one 8gb or ram, and a 1050ti. +1

I would advise against it. The benefit of having a dual channel RAM in a ryzen processor (especially in an APU) outweights the upgradability option. Not to consider the fact that, should the OP decide to upgrade in the future, he would need exactly the same RAM chips in order to avoid issues.

DerplePurp 1 point 1 month ago

At high settings and not using the APU there is little to no benefit from dual channel. 1 stick would be better for future upgrading if he ever decides to do something that needs 32gb or more of ram.

bengle15 1 point 1 month ago

I think dual channel memory is always a great thing to have, especially on the Ryzen platform. If he ever wants to upgrade he also has another two ram slots, but if he is planning in a few months to upgrade to 16gb of ram, then he can run on one stick because dual channel for 16gb is better than quad channel.

richonnem1 submitter 1 Build 1 point 1 month ago

I didn't really think about the single channel/ dual channel aspect, It was kind of a natural thing to pick the kit, seeing all the builds I watch go with the kit. Possibly would've been better but I think it's okay its not going to be upgraded anytime soon and I'm making a personal rig when the new ryzen chips come out this year hopefully. But thanks man
