Mainly gaming. I've been looking to build a new PC for awhile. I do have a laptop that I use for gaming when I'm away from home (ASUS ROG GL552VW). While I love having the laptop, I wanted something at home that I can use for gaming along with work if I have to. The original PC that I had did me well for many years from 2006. However, due to a lightning storm two weeks into my rental home years ago that computer never fully recovered.
Any questions? Ask away.
I wanted something that will do me for quite some time. The 1600x just kept screaming at me when I was preparing for my build. I'm solid at 4GHz.
Some people say it's overkill but I've never been the one to settle for "This is all you need." when it comes to the PC World. The temps are running fine and keep the CPU REALLLY REALLLLY cool. I wanted to also have a little bit of RGB in my case so this was one of the selling points.
Another piece that I wanted due to RGB plus for the speed. The RAM runs flawlessly at 3200mhz. G.Skill has put out another version of the RAM that is designed specifically for Ryzen builds. Grab it if you can.
Stores Windows and a couple of my games. Will be adding another one in the near future. Currently have a 1TB HDD for my other games and storage.
I originally had a 1050Ti in this build for almost a year and was wanting to cap the build off with a 1080Ti. However, due to the bitcoin/mining phase that stopped those plans. Ended up going with a 2070 and don't regret it one single bit. Right out of the box I did play my games and was great on Ultra settings @ 1440p. As time goes on and I get familiar with the card I will overclock it. It can beat out quite a few games for 1080Ti so we'll work towards that.
Flawless case. Great ways to make the case clean and not have to worry about wires in your display side of the case. I chose this version to KINDA go cheaper but if you're able to go with the Elite version...by all means do it.
Very great monitor and couldn't beat the price that I bought it for. Very great for 2K resolution and very solid for gaming. I tweaked the color settings after a little while of having it but it's even great out of the box. Definitely worth it if you can grab one.
