Description

Since I was young, I was very interested in building my own PC, but I never really got to it. 2 years ago, I really wanted to play FIFA 17 and other games on my old pc (i7 2600 and amd radeon 7570). My PC could handle most games before I bought fifa 17 and GTA 5. I started seeing the age of my PC and decided to upgrade my gpu to a gtx 960. suddenly my pc turned into a budget gaming pc. In the summer the next year, which is this year. I decided to sell my old pc for 430 euros and I started to assemble my first full PC.

The original gpu was a gtx 1050 ti, but in the summer i went to Hong Kong and saw that gpu prices there were ALOT lower than the west. So I decided to buy the GTX 1070 armor OC edition. I sold the GTX 1050 ti. I also didn't have an SSD at the beginning, I also bought the SSD in Hong Kong.

The RAM isn't the one stated in part list. I just bought two sticks of used ddr4 4gb 2133mhz. I also saw white hyperx fury ram cover coolers on aliexpress, i bought those and stuck it to my ram to make it more appealing :D

I also bought psu cable extensions from cablemods.eu , they're black/white cables, so it'll match my armor themed pc.

The case is probably the first part that i'll replace. It's really short of space and I would want to upgrade to a full atx build. I think my next case is probably going to be the Phanteks P300. The second part I'll probably replace is my psu, simply because of my GTX 1050 ti to GTX 1070 upgrade. I chose a 430w 80+ evga psu simply because of the gtx 1050 ti while thinking that'll i'll never upgrade to a high end gpu. But the Hong Kong prices got me lel :p. The last part i'll upgrade is the motherboard, i'm thinking about upgrading to a x370 or b350 krait gaming atx motherboard.

Video Card

Great card, all though a bigger fan shroud and backplate could be appreciated. I actually had to send it MSI to replace it since my first one was defect.

Hi since you have built a PC before and I am looking for some help. So I am 13 years old and I do not like consoles, I have played with them before and even though I have never had one I have been able to make the conclusion that I do not like them. Anyways I am looking for help on my first pc build (Link here https://pcpartpicker.com/list/4K94yf ) and I would just like to know if it is any good and if I should change anything. The thing I am most worried about is my motherboard not fitting into my case. Thanks for any help :D

Did you have any fps drops, I have a similar build even though I did test my CPU and it seems fine and my GPU and seems to be okay as well but way whenever for example while I am driving in watch dogs 2 I get this massive fps drop my GPU and my CPU seem to stop boosting and they drive down to the idle state .

What is your ram speed? I have 2133 mhz and i also do get frame drops sometimes in pubg. Ryzen performance depends on ram speed. The higher ram speed you have, the higher your minimum fps will be in games.

I gotta say the AMD CPU and Geforce Graphics card was a mistake. You gotta be able to share the power of the CPU with the GPU.
