Comment reply on MarkyIsTrash's Completed Build: Budget PC build for Gaming

I think that if you were trying to save money on the GPU, a 1660 (I don't think GDDR6 on the 1660Ti is worth the meh performance bump and price increase) would have been the way to go. The Kingston could be a 500GB as well, they're cheap. The only other issue I'll point out is the... cable management... could be better. Still, not my system, I don't have to look at it every day. Overall, decent specs and a base to expand from.

New Egg has the incorrect open-side pic for the system listed; I just noticed that! I agree that getting a refurb office PC and adding a decent card to it might be a way to go though.

Yeah... had the same problem building in a case with no cable management. Here you go, feel free to borrow anything I tried. I still have the case; I moved the build to a different case to upgrade the airflow.

Yep. It also means an excellent foundation to upgrade the rest of the system with. :)

Nice to be able to drop a 2700 into it if he needs the extra threads... :)

Well... I moved my FX-8320 to this build as well, and it makes a good combo with the 1050 Ti (the bump to 4GB of VRAM made running World of Tanks on medium a lot smoother, with framerates in the 90+ range) for the things I do and play. I have an Athlon X2 6000 that the 7850 might end up with as a retro game box. It's not going away just yet. :)

I need to update the list, it has a 1050 Ti in it now.

Rock solid, quiet, has handled everything I've thrown at it. I'm gonna up the RAM now that prices have dropped, and save for a 1070 and a NVMe M.2 and after that I will be set for a while.

I'm surprised that e-machines case has the airflow for a modern cpu. Love the cable management (even though there's no window) with the looms. Only thing I could see that might be sketchy is that old p/s; who knows when it'll give up the ghost? Otherwise, I like the build. +1

Nice, very nice. I used a Pure Rock for my build; big mistake, it can only be installed horizontally on an AM4 socket. Otherwise, I like the look.

The stock cooler is fine if you're only gonna OC it a little; it's better than the stock Intel hsf by a mile. You don't have to go with an AIO to OC a 2600 and keep it quiet; I went with a be quiet PURE ROCK air cooler for mine.

Wow, stuff seems expensive Down Under! (You don't corner Cyborg, Cyborg corners you. ;) ) Interesting that the G.Skill isn't on the compatibility list, as I'm running 8GB of Ripjaws 4 in my 2600 build and it's been running fine on the XMP profile. Not directly comparable, I know, but the whole point of waiting for the updated Ryzen chips (for me, anyway) was to get access to more RAM sets. Still, nice build!

I can see some things not on the parts list; that Thermaltake fancontroller: that Silverstone NAS (or hotswap bays, hard to tell); the fittings, waterblocks, rads, etc. What's their story? Why are they there? Why the cream-colored fluid instead of something more (or less) contrast-y? I spent 8+ years as a slot machine tech and 7 more as an IT tech; if you didn't document it, you didn't buy it, install it, or do it. It's an interesting-looking build, people are gonna wanna know these things... :)

RAM prices are still kinda crazy (AFAIC), so I went a little differently with my build. Still, I like how you thought; how long ago did you actually start the build?

That's because he bought a server-class HD made for always-on, constant read/ write ops. I can't wait until your build posts so I can comment on it.

Ah... I didn't see your comment until after I refreshed the page. I agree completely; I did exactly that with one of my old FX builds and made it a lot better. I think most of the nitpick will be about the AIO being upside down though.

I still get a lot of use out of my 8320, but I think that 1070 is a little too much card for that chip. Same with the AIO. You planning to upgrade to a Ryzen or 8700k? Might not be a bad idea...

Here's my 2600 with the AMD logo clocked correctly (pics 6,7,10 and 11); the screw heads on the shroud are soft and the screws are tight and were so easy to strip that I don't think it was worth the effort.

You can clock the logo, but the shroud screws are soft and the heads are easy to strip. :( (From personal experience...)

Considering you were on a budget, this is an ok build, but... Ryzen runs better with faster RAM; DDR4-2666 would have been $10 more but 10% or so faster game performance. A 240 - 250GB SSD would have room for more games and the swap file; Frys had the 250GB 860 Evo (Samsung) on sale for $48 this week (well, with the promo code). And you have a MasterBox Lite for a case, so the cable management could be better (here's a build in a worse case but better cabling); if you're gonna have a window, you should clean up the wires. My R5-2600 isn't the best looking, and I reused a bunch of stuff (I upgraded an older build), but it's what I'm talking about as a minimum standard. Especially if you're building it for someone else.

Stop trolling and be constructive, say why the RAM needs an upgrade (or overclock). Jeez.

I second Otterman366's comment about the RAM; check your motherboard manual to be sure, but I think you have both RAM sticks on the same channel. Also, if you're gonna sit the system on the carpet, flip the power supply so that the fan is pulling air from inside the case and not trying to suck carpet fibers thru the case filter under the box. Other than that, not a bad build. :)

If someone broke into your friend's house, they wouldn't steal this thing, they'd throw it in the dumpster for him. OMG, an Emachines box? And an ECS motherboard? I better never hear any smack about my old beige box with its ABIT motherboard; at least mine can run a browser and SETI. At the same time. On another note: I didn't know you were unvotified! Sorry to hear that, I just got a new upgrade posted, wanted to see what you thought.

1050Ti isn't a bad choice to pair your FX with (I've done the same here)
