Description

This is my entire rig I play on. I did have a couple of problems though... I tried to overclock my older cpu 1600 and it worked, for like a month. Then the motherboard just stopped working. It would boot, but after it ran windows for like 5-20 mins the screen goes black and the 1080's fan boosts to like 10,000 rpm and then shuts down. So I had to replace the motherboard (all hail warranties). Now that I have not overclocked my 2600, everything is working fine.

Here are my frames (all on max graphics):

  • Fortnite: 90-100 fps
  • Apex: 70-80 fps
  • Minecraft (And yes this is true): 16,100 fps
  • Other Games: Didn't feel like benchmarking.

In Conclusion: Works Very Well

Side note: GTX > RTX and AMD > INTEL

BTW this build, https://pcpartpicker.com/b/Gs7WGX, is my secondary computer (It uses my old 1600). I use it for streaming and just as another computer for people to use. It works well, but the audio and microphone jacks dosn't work (It is the motherboard). So I got a usb to audio and microphone jack (because usb audio works) and it worked! So yay!

Part Reviews

CPU

Works extreamly well for the price. You just have to force it to use all its cores if you want better frames. (amd does that for a reason I do not know)

Motherboard

It works very well, has alot of features, but it does not do well while overclocking. (It broke and I had to get a replacement)

Memory

Extreamly good RAM. Great speed and very pretty for the price. (I think you don't need anything more than 16gb of RAm unless your are editing or doing alot of streaming. So personally I am fine with 16gb)

Storage

Its a m.2. Great boot speed. Great load speed. I don't need much storage for this. It is just a boot drive. I do put some games that I play frequently on it for fast load times.

Storage

Great hard drive. Hasn't done anything bad to me... yet.

Video Card

I don't know why some people hate on single fans, It is quiet and looks kinda cool (I feel as if I should vertically mount it but sadley my case dosn't support vertical mounting). It runs hot, but not overheating and it still runs my game (as you can see from the benchmarks) very well.

Case

Its a nice case. Keeps everything cool, alot of fan slots, nice windows to look at everything in the computer.

Operating System

Its windows... I mean it feels a little overpriced but you do get alot our of it... Like ALOT.

Wireless Network Adapter

It works pretty good. It gives me like 40Mbps in the worst room in the house for Wi-Fi. So yeah feels good.

Case Fan

These are great fans. Keep everything cool while lookin hot. ;)

Monitor

So it says I have two of these but I actually couldn't find my third monitor. It is a old TV that is the same size as this monitor. I only have 2 complaints about the monitor, it is not 1920x1080, it is 1600x900. Which is fine but the real part I don't like is how it is LCD and not LED. But for the price it works very well and looks pretty good.

Monitor

I know this thing is the most popular monitor, and it lives up to its name. It is 1920x1080, LED, and 60 Hz for only 100 bucks. Not bad if I say so myself.

Mouse

I really like this mouse. It is very precise and very customizable. I love how it can be connected through wireless, wired, or bluetooth. Only issue is sometime the mouse just stops working. You have to unplug and plug back in the wireless USB and it will be working again. (I think this has to do with drivers, not sure though).

Note: I have only see this issue on wireless mode.

Headphones

Works very well. Great sound, but the microphone picks up ALOT of wind. You can be breathing and the guy of the other side will hear a catagory 5 hurricane. (This is an exaggeration but it is still annoying how much wind it picks up).

Custom

I use this as my main hub. I put it in the mode... I think it is called bridge mode, that makes it recieve Wi-Fi and then spit it out as ethernet. Gives me around 60-70Mbps in the worst room in the house for Wi-Fi. Also, I have it streaming the video from 1 - 4 computers into one of the computers and then that computer streams it out through the router as well. It then drops to 40Mbps, but it is still not bad saying it is working with all of that.

That is a little bit of an exaggeration... I know what it sounds like.

fair to say your title is only applicable in a limited number of situations, like price

Well, in price terms amd (almost) always wins. The GTX is better than RTX is just a joke. RTX is definitely better.

RTX preforms better, but they have lots of problems and the ray tracing is only on a few games rn

The CPUs not the problem it's the motherboard. Last time I OC my motherboard broke. So I'm not going to do that again.
