This build is replacing a 4670K @ 4.4ghz + R290 with 16 gb DDR3.
The original build was for my wife while she was in Nurse Practitioner School. She's offered for me to build a new PC for the past 3 years and I put it off until this year. I built myself a 1700x + 16gb 3200 mhz RAM + EVGA 1070ti on black friday for great savings.
This PC was built primarily due to the blitz deal newegg had for a 1700x + x370 gaming for $150 combo (both parts for $150, they are on newegg for around $400 now).
XFX 390x stock 1060/1500 core/memory. I flashed a overclcoked 1090/1500 bios so it auto boots and runs a little faster
I upgraded the GPU to a Gigabyte RX 480 8GB Windforce. Will do 1340 core and 2200 memory.

Bioshock Infinite Benchmark (Monitor is only 22" with 1680x1050 resolution. Recording while running makes it lower than usual) https://youtu.be/vJgL_Fv_suI
2019-03-26 Got a great deal on a Gigabyte RX 480 8gb Windforce for $70
Good processor for editing, streaming, gaming
Have 3 of these (2 on 1700x, 1 on 1600) and keeps 12-16 threads cool when overclocked.
Less than a year and have it on RMA for onboard LAN issues.
I dont like gigabyte AM4 bios as the voltage offset doesn't allow direct control of cpu vcore.
Great card for 1080P. Got this used for $70 from ebay and its quiet and performs great.
Have used this for years. Used to mine with 280X and now use in daily builds and its powered crossfire cards easily
