Build

Red Box

by Jovinger

Description

First AMD build. Built for gaming and daily task purposes. Reason for build was my son's gaming laptop met its end. So I gave him my last build. Wanted to build a system that was close to on par with my Intel I5 8400 build to see the true differences between the Intel and Ryzen chipsets. Was happy with my end results. Stuck with the red team theme.

Is the RAM giving you any trouble?

Nice mouse and keyboard. Read Dragon is both cheap and effective! Personally for the GPU I would've gotten the MSI Radeon RX 580 8gb OC. It's around $220 right now, so for about the same price as the 1060 you would get 8gb card but with -0.2Ghz in speed (unless you overclock like a mad man).

Was looking into the RX cards but already had the 1060 on hand so was able to save a few bucks.

coulda gotten an rx 580 4gb which is the same performance and more fans for 50 bucks cheaper, but otherwise nice build, love that case
