Description

I use this machine for everything but I also decided to make it strong enough to play video games. I easily get 100+ fps in majority of games.

The SSD makes loading very fast, No need for a sound card, Room for a second card of Ram if needed down the road, Wifi enabled

Please note it is very hard to fit all the wires from this power supply in such a small case!

I have seen the price of this build drop as low as 630-660 US dollars. If this build interests you then wait for prices to drop. I paid about 730 at the time.

This does not include an OS but I used windows 10 home.

If you see the cable management you might throw up not going to lie. I am an electromechanic and this is a disgrace.

In pc building you never apologize. You will do what need and can be done for the love for pc's .Here you will find like-minded people .You make a build and you enjoy it. It is as easy as that. AMD in processors is like a breath for fresh air. This is how things must be. I like your build, it is strait forward and gets the job done. Enjoy!

1200 + 1060 3gb, is it bottle neck on battle field 1? Did you try it?

If a 1200 is overclocked to 3.8ghz it will not bottleneck the 1060 3gb or 6gb at all. In fact it performs on par to an unlock i7. The 3gb version will be the limiting factor in a few games that use a lot of VRAM. But there are very few of these games.

In summary, all ryen CPU's when overclocked perform similarily when overclocked, and will not bottleneck anything up to a gtx 1060. When using a 1070 and above, and unlocked i5 or i7 will get the most FPS in games.

To be more accurate, ryzen 3 1200 performs on par with an i7 2600k, which came out in 2011... and that's just for gaming. The i7 2600k is 36% more powerful in multi thredded applications.

Further detail, a modern i7 like the i7 7700k is 45% more powerful than the ryzen 1200, and literally 103% faster in multi-threaded applications.

The i7 is made to be a long lasting high performance cpu, the ryzen 3 1200 is made to be a starter/ beginner cpu that you can upgrade in the near future. Thats why the original msrp is much different. You're comparing high end hardware with a budget option. On top of that with the Zen you still have an upgrade path but with Z270 if you were to get a 7700K thats what you'd have to stick with or get a new mobo.

Fraglepuss was the one comparing a $100 budget CPU to an i7, I was providing further information so that nobody got confused.

I don’t particularly plan on overclocking unless it becomes necessary. That is quite a bit beyond my experience. It is a miracle this machine even started with 0 issues.

It takes about 5 minutes. Just stick it at 3.6ghz, which is well under its max. Free performance

Fraglepuss what the hell lol. Do not tell people to apply a 500Mhz OC in one go. That's how you fry chips. Overclocking is a slow and delicate process., increasing in SMALL increments and checking for stability after every increase.

Further, you'd need an aftermarket CPU cooler before you could apply a 500mhz OC safely. You can overclock on the stock cooler but its unwise with that much!

It's a 5 minute job. The software auto overclocks it for you...

I haven’t tried tripple A but I get 150+ fps on fortnite and like 300 fps lfd2. I know that isn’t a good standard for comparison but I will be playing pubg later today and we will see how that goes.

I haven't had any issues. I am sure you could drill some holes if install a grating if you like. My PSU vents out the back of the case.

This already cost more than anticipated but I agree I probably should have done a little more future proofing.
