Description

Many of my friends who have not already switched to PC are doing so, and I am building PCs for them. Recently, my friend Kevin wanted me to build one for him, so I did.

I only had two problems building it, and only one of them was my fault. I am not joking when I say that it took us AN ENTIRE HOUR to screw the motherboard into the case. THE CASE DID NOT COME WITH THE RIGHT SIZE SCREWS. Come on man. We ended up having to use the screws that would attach the PSU to the case to screw in the motherboard. Only 5 of the 8 holes are filled, but I wouldn't have left it that way I didn't think it was safe. Thankfully, other screws ended up working for the PSU so we didn't have to spend long on that. The other problem was after we had installed Windows 10. We went to download Steam and drivers, but we had no internet connection. We were 3 feet from the router so we knew that there was something wrong from the computer. He needed to leave for a family dinner, so laying on the rug, I opened the PC to see that everything was plugged in correctly. Low and behold, the wifi card was not pushed in all the way. That was the only thing that was out of place. After that, it was a smooth ride and he's had no issues since.

There isn't a headset included, just a splitter because he already had a headset.

I forgot to take pictures for this build as well as another, but I am doing another one soon so I will do my best to remember to take pictures then.

I'm surprised you paid $218 for a 1060 3gb when the RX 580 destroys it for the same price. Also, the RAM speed might impact performance since Ryzen performs better with fast RAM (3000mhz is usually the sweet spot for the current Zen CPUs).

^^^ if it was the gtx 1060 6GB model the difference is back and forth but for the 3GB model it's worst

the 3gb and the 1050 Ti are garbage when you compare them to the rx 570 and 580

^^^^^^^ the 6GB variant is about the same, but everything else sucks in comparison

Your comment caused me to check the price and it actually was $209 but there isn't much of a difference. I wasn't aware the RX 580 was a lot better, thanks for the info! I'll have to check out some benchmarks.

the psu is meh and 1x8 isnt good and why the 2400g over the 1600 or the 2600

I choose the psu because it was a good price for what we got, we didn't need it to be modular because he doesn't even have a window on his case. As for the 2400g, I'm pretty sure it was at the time like $4 more expensive than some other ryzen and had a significantly higher performance.

Don't like the monitor on that motherboard box. And also would prefer a lan connection before the wifi. But other than that the components are fine. XD I hope your friend has a lot of great experiences with it.

Unless he gets a cheap monitor stand from Amazon, that thing will have to do. Before I had an adjustable monitor, I just used my motherboard box so I wasn't looking down at my monitor. As for the wifi, I totally agree with you that lan is better. I said that he is 3 ft away, but in between those two desks is the middle of the room. In order for him to get lan, he would have to run the cable along the ceiling and I don't think he is comfortable doing that. Thanks for the comment!
