Description

I decided to try my hand at a budget build for my youngest brother. All of the parts were purchased from Microcenter during different sales. This was actually my first PC build using an AMD CPU, which was strange for me, being a long time blue team fanboy. The only part I didn't purchase outright was the Kingston SSD, as I already had it lying around from a previous build. I honestly can't recommend this combo enough, the amount of power you can get for your money with a Ryzen and 1050 ti combo is truly impressive. The case from Corsair also provides excellent cable management functionality and more than sufficient room for further upgrades if the user wishes.

Pretty good budget build, really the same I'd do in the same situation.

Just check the mobo's manual for PCIe slots, I think the slot you want to put the gpu in is the top one, the closest to the cpu, to get maximum PCIe lanes (non that it should affect performances that much, but it's something).

Thanks for your advice! I mainly chose the middle slot for aesthetic purposes, but thank you very much for your feedback!

I play Minecraft, Overwatch, and CS GO what would the FPS be on those games?

Acheesyoneliner submitter 1 Build 2 points 18 months ago

I average around 70 fps on minecraft with reasonable draw distance. In the 70's on high in Overwatch, and around 110 on CS:GO. 1080p on all. I can't recommend this card and CPU combo for budget builds enough!

Do you think it's worth getting the 1300X instead? I could OC the 1200 to the same as 1300's base, but I'm a bit worried about overclocking as I've never done it before. I read that it decreases the computer's overall lifetime and can crash alot..

2200g for now, 1700 and RX 580 later

That makes me feel much better. I'm building one with a Ryzen 3 1200 OC and a GTX 1050 Ti as well, and wasn't sure if it would be enough. Great build, +1

Quick question. Did the ram run at the native speed when booted or was there some modifications that was needed?

markbrenich 1 point 18 months ago

Bro props for the dope cable management and did u oc ur rig?

Acheesyoneliner submitter 1 Build 1 point 18 months ago

Absolutely, the Ryzen is currently clocked at 3.5GHz and the 1050 TI is clocked up to 1886MHz

markbrenich 1 point 18 months ago

With stock cooling you can oc it to 4.0 ghz at 1.35 volts but the voltage is a bit sketchy

where's the benchmarks?

Acheesyoneliner submitter 1 Build 2 points 18 months ago

Coming soon, finishing overclock now.

Hey, just wondering if you had a problem with your mobo and case standoffs lining up? My brother just got this combo and the case doesn't seem to have the proper standoff points for the two middle screws..

I want to play GTA V, FIFA 18, Overwatch, CS GO and PubG. what would be FPS on those games?? :)

Is this pc really good and is it still at the same price... i really like this pc and i would love to buy it :D

NinjaWTf 0 points 16 months ago

From my understanding Ryzen processors are having trouble with certain ram modules. Did you find any problems with the dims you selected for this build?

Nice Build

Kinda wish you had an RX series "Red Devil" card in here from Powercolor in here, even if their quality is meh.

Still great build though.

TheLostBoy 0 points 18 months ago

I was thinking the same thing. RX Red Devil is awesome to overclock tho because of the 3 fan blower config.

Sockens 0 points 18 months ago

I use two RX 480 GTR Black Editions in my build. Those suckers can OC like crazy.

I totally agree, but I couldn't pass up the sale on the spec 2 that included three case fans. Exactly! Trying to get him started young, lol.
