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.

Nice build bro! Can you put that bottom RGB fan on the front panel. Are those 120 mm fans? Or 140 mm, because I am not sure if the case supports 2 140 mm fans with the small form factor.
