This is my 8-year-old 2010 iMac replacement that really saved me as I got to the point in which I couldn't even run League of Legends. Built with a Ryzen 7 and RX 580, this build was aimed at gaming, streaming, developing, rendering, simulation, and school. This is the first PC that I have ever built. There were numerous problems that occured during the build including: 1) Obtaining a boot-kit from AMD to update my BIOS 2) Making sure that the motherboard standoffs were actually installed correctly :thinking: 3) My power supply burring out after it had been installed upside down and I had to get a new one
Here's a simple list of the breakdown of my build:
Ryzen 7 2700X: Very powerful and essential of simulation and rendering. Also rocks that awesome cooler!
MSI B350M PRO-VD PLUS: Simple motherboard that's easily debugable and fits my build perfectly.
G.Skill Aegis 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-3000 RAM wasn't much of a concern but 16 GB is what you need.
Samsung 850 EVO-Series 250GB 2.5" SSD Amazing boot times! Also using this for some of my more-used apps as well.
Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Basic 1TB. Also used an old 500 GB hard drive to total my storage at 1.75 TB.
Gigabyte Radeon RX 580 8GB Gaming 8G Definitely is a great design and provides awesome power a great price.
Corsair 270R ATX Mid Tower Sleek, low-profile case that that has good sound management and I got at a great price. Would recommend to any first-time builder.
Cooler Master MasterWatt 550W Except for it burning out, this is a very easy-to-use PSU.
Microsoft Windows 10 Home OEM 64-bit I'm a Mac OS user. I had to buy it (but would take OSX any day).
Gigabyte GC-WB867D-I PCI-Express WiFi? Too far away for ethernet.
Acer G246HLAbd and Acer GN246HL These are amazing monitors. The G246HLAbd is a bit off in color compared to the other so in the future I might buy a second GN246HL. Would recommend the GN246HL to any gamer.
Corsair K55 RGB Wired Gaming, Logitech M325 Wireless Optical, Logitech Z323 30W 2.1ch The K55 is a great deal and Corsair iCue and their other products makes this a great choice. The mouse I already owned and I needed speakers because I certainly couldn't take them out of a Mac.
Comment below! I'd love to hear your feedback!

Easy install for first-time builder. Would recommend.
Great monitor that matches with other great Acer monitors like the GN246HL. Would recommend.
The best gaming monitor out there right now. It does not have a forwards-backwards tilt but has a great backlight and is essential in every gaming build.
Awesome deal for your money. Goes great with other Corsair products!
Good mouse, not the greatest dongle.
Amazing speakers that produce amazing sound. No problems other than the wire management is a hassle.
