Description

Features an AMD Ryzen 2700x, an ASUS ROG Strix AMD Radeon Vega 64, 16GB DDR4-3000, 128GB NVME boot drive, 3TB 7200RPM Game Drive, and some sick rgb. Great for gamers and creators alike. Will take a moderate chunk out of your paycheck, but it seems quite future-proof. Most games run at 3440*1440 with this FreeSync 100 Hz monitor just fine. All peripherals taken into account.

Part Reviews

CPU

Amazing CPU, great for creators and gamers alike. Never experienced an overheat, even with the stock cooler, or a bottleneck, with it. AMAZING 8700K alternative, with better performance in creator tasks, and close gaming performance. Intel wins with higher clock speeds, but this CPU is my personal favorite. Side note: 2800x will have 10c 20t, therefore making it somewhat impractical for gaming. Creators will most likely opt for a threadripper.

Motherboard

Decent motherboard, great price, RGB was a nice touch. Does what I need it to do, and supports all my PCIe cards, so there.

Memory

Nice, speedy ram that works especially well with my Ryzen build. Looks excellent in my case.

Storage

Good, fast, reliable boot drive. 10/10 would buy again.

Storage

This is the perfect hard drive for me. I was looking for high capacity and high RPM, and this here is 7200RPM.

Video Card

This absolute beast is amazing for creator/workstation tasks, great for gaming, too. It is a bottleneck in my system, but only at 4K max, and I still get 60 fps or above.

Case

AMAZING CASE. Could not recommend more. This case, especially for its price, is an amazing thing to have. Tempered glass, decent cable management, good airflow... it's great.

Power Supply

Fits my power requirements just fine at a decent price.

Operating System

It's windows 10 so it's good

Sound Card

Good sound quality and supports my surround speakers which is always nice

Wireless Network Adapter

Gets the job done, decent speed, better than any integrated MoBo wifi card.

Monitor

EPIC MONITOR 100hz freesync 3440*1440 for this price is good.

Keyboard

The switches are greatttttttttt

Mouse

Ah, it's my trusty DeathAdder. What else to say?

Headphones

Great sound, nice touch with 7.1

Speakers

'Tis a great speaker system

Bro my mobo has ddr4-2 and ddr4-4 next to each other. It's weird but I have it in dual channel

Check out the other builds with that mobo. I don't have it but I would recommend checking those builds out because most people have it spaced out regularly. Anyways, nice build.

It's amazing, and thanks. I haven't had any problems and it's an amazing monitor. Highly recommend, especially if you have an AMD gpu, because of the freesync
