Description

I use it for gaming, light video editing/rendering, web browsing and content consumption.

By the way, I have added some more RAM, and a WD SSD. I have also upgraded to the R5 1600 from the R3 1200.

I do not own Logitech Speakers. I used them as a placeholder for my Amazon Basics speakers.

I changed from the Rosewill Star Predator to the Cooler Master MasterBox Lite 5 RGB. I got it for $50 from Micro Center (inventory refresh.)

I now use 3 monitors. The SP2008WFP should be free if you are lucky enough to find it on the side of the road or something. I'd pay no more than $20 for it.

The Ryzen 3 1200 has been swapped to a Ryzen 5 1600.

I have changed from the MasterBox Lite 5 RGB to the Meshify C Dark TG and from the Wraith Spire to the Scythe Fuma 2.

How does this perform in games? I am actually planning on building a PC similar to this one.

I don't really play very demanding games at the moment, but it got 40-60 FPS in Unigine Heaven at max settings (fullscreen).

Great build, I really like the monitor, CPU, and GPU. Also I like that you didnt waste money on pretty stuff. This thing must game at max 60fps on everything which is what you need. The 1200 is such a good cpu, and you've a good upgrade path for the next few years.

One thing this build will suffer from is the lack off an SSD. Its the only gripe i have, but they are one of the most important things for me and certainly the biggest bottleneck of this system. I would never go back.

Thanks! By the way, I will be adding an SSD very soon.

Great, I'd recommend a Samsung one, as they have the best migration software

I'll probably get a Samsung SSD, unless it's a very bad deal. Once again, thanks!

Everything in this build is fine except for the blower style graphics card.. there is cheaper ones with better cooling..

Thanks! By the way, the only other 1060 6 GB (https://pcpartpicker.com/product/pbL7YJ/evga-geforce-gtx-1060-6gb-gaming-video-card-06g-p4-6161-kr) in the same price range (at the time of purchase) as the one that I have now only had one fan anyways. I figured that I could just get the blower to help with airflow.

While I know the benefits of dual channel RAM, it was actually more expensive. It's also nice to be able to have 32 GB of RAM while using identical modules.

Does this cpu works without bios update ? Some people are saying that ryzen 3 won't post without a new bios.

Yes. It worked without a BIOS update.

The 1060 6GB is a good card. I have an EVGA ACX3.0 6gb version and it runs all my games on ultra+ at 120fps+. If you are planning on 1050 vs a 1060 I'm assuming you have the cash for both. If you are going the 1050 route, then get a ti. 2 more gigs of vram will help a lot. If you have like $20 extra, then get the 1060 3gb. It has 1GB less vram than the ti but the card itself will make up for that. If you have the extra money and and don't want to use it on a better CPU or something, then the 1060 6gb is good.

Thanks! I'll add some more pictures soon. As for the 1060 I haven't really pushed the card to it's limits, but It's been more than good enough for me.
