Description

Specialising in photography, video production and partially graphic design, I used to do everything on my Macbook Pro (2015) which only had 4gb of RAM and 128gb of SSD storage. I was stuck with it for school - it wasn't bad but I needed something that was capable of editing 4K and heavy multitasking. Oh, and I was also missing out on gaming with friends. About 4 years later, I've finally saved enough to put together a machine that can cater for my needs.

With lots of research I decided I'd stick with Ryzen seeing as it is the ultimate bang for the buck. After reading numerous reviews I thought it would perfect for what I do. Originally my budget for this build was $800-1000AUD but it kept increasing as I saved more and came across fancier parts, coming to a total of nearly $2000AUD.

This build ticks all the right boxes. With quick export times and flawless gaming performance I couldn't ask for anything more or less - this is all thanks to the GTX 1070 Ti which I was able to get my hands on for $480AUD second hand! Being a minimalism enthusiast, I was after an aesthetic build not only I could use, but enjoy looking at.

Being my first time building a PC, it took me around 8 hours (almost a full day) to put it all together. I didn't even bother with cable management, but thankfully my cousin offered to come over and help me out with all the cables and fix all the mistakes I made.

My favourite part of the build has to be the CableMod PRO cable extensions. It's the small details that make a world of difference. Despite the dear price it is definitely worth the investment, and makes your PC so much neater and more pleasing so look at compared to the stock PSU cables.

Hope you guys enjoy the pictures!

This build is absolutely beautiful, good job on making a pc that is not only powerful but amazing looking. The black and slight color scheme is not going to waste here and this might be the best I've see it be pulled off under 1,500$. GOOD JOB :D

-Edit: Your photos are absolutely beautiful and breathtaking

Well done on the build. In my opinion the CPU cooler is very overkill for this build and could have made the price tag a lot less for the overall cost of the PC.
