Description

So one day I was bored so I asked one of by best friends, hey, do you want a gaming PC? And they were like sure, here's $700. Since that moment, I tried my best to pick out the best parts that will fit his needs.

He wanted pure speed, but also a PC that will fit his budget which comes straight from the local grocery store. So here I am.

I don't have a lot of complex benchmarks or anything but I would expect it to run a little better than my personal build, which runs 140 fps on Fortnite, high/epic settings with a GTX 1050. This build has a GTX 1050 Ti.

Part Reviews

CPU

Amazing value. The Ryzen series is just straight up VALUE. My i3-8100 runs a little better, but the price difference was just worth so much more. Great CPU, that can handle pretty much any common usage.

Motherboard

Another great value pick. It's newer, so I expected it to be stable and reliable, which it is. And it has some orange led accents which I never knew about.

Memory

The sticks look like they're twice the actual price. And, it runs at 2400 consistently and smoothly. Great choice.

Storage

A little on the slower side for an SSD, but still exponentially faster than a mechanical 7200rpm drive. Boot times vary from 9-13 seconds.

Video Card

Does its job perfectly. It's stable, runs cool, and is just a great value. Fortnite runs 150 fps on high/epic settings, no shadows.

Case

$60?! This thing is literally one of the nicest cheap cases I've ever seen. Firstly, it looks like it's $200, and you get space for 6 120mm fans. Also, the cable management is just so clean. You get at least 2.5cm in the back for routing cables.

Power Supply

ALMOST perfect. Nothing much to say about a power supply, but I just wish manufacturers would stop using ketchup and mustard cables. Please.

That case looks really nice! How is the cable management on the other side? Thinking of doing a micro atx or mini build for myself next.
