Description

As the title states, there's nothing fancy about this build. What's that? RGB who? It's just a simple setup, with what I thought would be the best dollar for performance parts. I'm brand new to PC gaming, and I've never used KBM before, so I'm pretty much relearning how to play video games. It has been an absolute blast finding all the parts, and assembling everything.

Part Reviews

Power Supply

Fantastic PSU. Build quality and packaging are phenomenal. I was able to get a $20 rebate, so the price was great too!

Monitor

Price for performance this monitor is amazing. A sub $250 monitor that delivers 240hz is unbeatable. I was a tad hesitant that I'd regret not swinging for one of the more expensive and intensively reviewed monitors, however I'm glad I gave the XF250Q a shot! I'd highly recommend this monitor if you're trying to achieve 240hz without breaking the bank completely.

Nice looking build.! How you liking the R5 2600 and 1660 ti combo.? I just upgraded/built my first PC and was thinking about getting that CPU and GPU combo as my next upgrade.

I’m loving it so far! It’s my first build, so I don’t really have much to compare it to. Have you OC’d your CPU? I had a lot fun messing with that.

Was ram compatibly with this build of any problem? I am trying to build something similar with this cpu, motherboard, and ram, that is why I ask.

No, not an issue. All I had to do was update it to DDR4 3200 in the BiOS menu.

Were you able to connect the front usb-type c to the motherboard? I can't find what connector it uses anywhere. This looks remarkably similar to what I plan to build.

Unfortunately the B450 Tomahawk doesn’t have the type C capability.

is the monitor G-Sync compatible and do you experience any ghosting or blur?

It’s free-sync, which nvidia supports, so yes it’s also g-sync. No ghosting or blur, I’ve been very satisfied.
