Description

The Ryzen 3 1200 isn't the best cpu obviously... I made the mistake of buying it. I should have gotten a newer one for a little more $$$.

The Motherboard is just fine for my needs.

The memory only runs at 2000 mghz.

The SSD is enough memory for me. I worked for my neighbor a little to pay it off.

Another neighbor of mine gave me the GTX 770... otherwise I might've bought a 1060. But it performs great for my needs. (Fortnite and Internet)

The case is a monster with way too many HDD cages for me to ever use.

The power supply does fine and is hidden on the bottom of the case under a plastic cover.

Please keep in mind before you critique my cable management: I'm only 14.

I'll upload pics when I have time

I would've only gotten 8 gigabytes of ram, upgraded the CPU and the GPU.

You are losing a lot of performance by not putting the Gpu in the top slot. Otherwise looks great.

skelodude2059 2 points 7 months ago

considering your age you did a good job at this

Build looks great. Cable management is really good from the looks! I think if you have an extra 30$ laying around a set of purple cable extensions would REALLY make your build pop

.Elusive submitter 1 Build 2 points 7 months ago

The only thing is the purple cables would only match for a few seconds since the light is RBG

Can't you control that through a software?

.Elusive submitter 1 Build 1 point 7 months ago

there might be a feature in the asus mb software, I'll look into it

.Elusive submitter 1 Build 2 points 7 months ago

Yeah sorry about the pics. I'll upload better ones. I think I took the photos I too low of a rez

Great job! I don't think you made a mistake with the Ryzen 3 1200. Without considering the latest Ryzen 3 2200g, it's a hard to beat cpu for less than the $100 mark.

From a 14 year old to a 14 year old well done. Before I increased my budget I was going to get a 770. I think they are similar to a 1050 ti in performance.

Not to brag but same Age just with a 1070

nicksaysmeep 3 points 7 months ago

Not to brag but you then immediately brag? Why even comment?

Please keep it polite.

Smallpricetagbigbang 1 point 7 months ago

Ok sorry

You could enable XMP in bios to have your RAM run at a higher speed.

.Elusive submitter 1 Build 3 points 7 months ago

Alright thanks. I'm pretty new to PC coming from a Mac family so all the tips are appreciated!

I might have changed the case (for my personal taste for RGB LED because you can’t have enough of it even though it doesn’t improve performance), and I might have added a hardrive at least 1TB but other than that maybe a change in graphics card but I feel like this is about the same as the PC I’m saving up to build before I turn 15 in 8 months.

.Elusive submitter 1 Build 2 points 7 months ago

Yeah, if I need to I'll buy a hard drive, but the SSD came from a neighbor so I didn't bother.

Sparkorgaming 2 points 7 months ago

Ohhhh makes more sense now.

larryclashers 1 point 7 months ago

What's the max FPS you get??

.Elusive submitter 1 Build 1 point 7 months ago

its 60ish on all epic, not stable tho

larryclashers 1 point 7 months ago

so like macbook pro tyoe of specs?

larryclashers 1 point 7 months ago

is the view distance good? like what are the settings you use?

.Elusive submitter 1 Build 1 point 7 months ago

View Distance Epic Anti Aliasing/ Effects High Post Processing Medium Textures High

larryclashers 1 point 7 months ago

That's actually pretty good even if it runs at 60

WyrmWolf130 1 Build 1 point 7 months ago

Reminds me of when I was 14... like a year and a half ago.

overwatchfan99 1 point 7 months ago

how much fps does it have at optimised settings on fortnite

KillerBeastly1 1 point 6 months ago

Why are the pictures so blurry?

Brotato, Please consider another game. You are young and you can build your skills quickly at your age. Try Quake Champions, Quake Live, Unreal Tournament, Counterstrike.. Even PubG.. Fortnite loony toons game will die and the classic FPS genre will live on.

You got this, young grasshopper.

PS nice build :D

.Elusive submitter 1 Build 1 point 7 months ago

Idk, the thing is I am not extremely interested in a gaming career. Maybe something along the lines of Physical Science (still a broad subject). i appreciate the encouragement but I don't think I'll be the next Ninja xD

I'm sure it would look it great if you some half decent pics :/
