This build is kind of a budget build except on the higher end of what would be considered a budget build I feel like.
This was my first build ever. I spent lots of my time over summer watching all kinds of pc videos on YouTube to learn about computers. I was very anxious building it and thought I broke the machine pretty much any time I touched the circuitry of the MOBO by accident haha. In the end I really enjoyed the building of it despite my anxiety while building it. It was such a good feeling to press the power button and not have any issues. This computer runs overwatch at 85 fps on ultra with no dipping, rainbow six siege 90+, obviously csgo is in the hundreds. This computer will run any non triple A game with ease. I dont own any triple A titles on my computer yet so I cant say but I'm sure it would run them 60 at at least medium
CPU: I was originally going to go with the Ryzen 3 2200g but then convinced myself to get the 6 core 12 thread processor, Ryzen 5 2600, after cutting price down some on other parts like RAM and PSU.
MOBO: I had no particular reason for choosing this specific motherboard, nor for why a micro ATX. Just went with the red and black theme.
RAM: It was on sale for much cheaper, I believe it was at least 20 dollars cheaper. No problem clocking to 3000 (defaulted to 2133) and the rgb is really nice.
Storage: not much to say, got storage for pretty standard reasons. SSD has windows and some programs and my most played game. Hard drive has everything else.
GPU: Good price GPU that works well, stays at ~70°C. Would recommend. Also went with red and black theme.
Case: oh boy this case. Maybe it's just my lack of experience but this case was kind of a pain. The biggest issue was putting in the PSU. I had to grind a rivet down in order to put the psu in properly and the psu still doesnt slide in too well due to the design of where the graphic card ports go. It is just 1 or 2 mm too low on the case and the psu is a bit more snug than needs to be. Cable management was not easy with this case either. Doesnt have a "cage" at the bottom which I wish it did. Comes with 2 fans in the back and front and the front has really bright red led lights so that was nice. No problem with stock fans.
PSU: no problem with it, got semi modular because I didnt use custom cables.
Extra fan: wanted another one for more cooling. Put it under the front stock fan.
Had to buy a fan splitter because of the 1 too few fan headers.
