overall build From around August of 2018 i've been wanting a PC, so i saved up a bit of money and bought myself this build, i am pretty happy with it. Yes i know i could've got better parts for the money, but at least there is now a leniency to upgrade even more now. For a 13 year old, i'm pretty satisfied anyway. I use this build for gaming, light video editing and photoshop. Works very well so far.
CPU CPU works very well for this build, sits at around 3.5ghz when playing games, doesn't really go higher unless putting high load on it. Sits at around 1.6ghz when just browsing the internet or watching Youtube. Very good CPU for budget builds.
GPU GTX 1660, very good card. Runs pretty much every game at max settings, getting around 100+ fps in games. (Depends on the game.) Games like Rocket League run fine, max settings 200+ fps and looks smooth. Say for a game like the Witcher 3, you can play max settings and get a decent frame rate but even then you'd want to just crank down the settings a bit. Got this for around £210 (including shipping) off Amazon and came 3 weeks early
Storage Not much to it, storage is fine. Yes I know ''the A400 is bad1!!!'' I wish I had known that before I had bought it, but oh well. Does the job fine.
RAM RAM is pretty good, I would've liked to get 3000mhz but oh well. The RAM sits at around 2667mhz so that's a bit of a bonus if you can call it one. There was actually a problem with the RAM, when I built the PC only one stick of RAM was working, I wasn't sure if it was working but task manager wasn't working. When I went into the BIOS, also not working. I'm not sure if it was because I had put them in slots 2 and 4 or I just did something retarded when building. Other than that, decent RAM.
Case I think the case has a nice look, had one installed fan and only an acrylic glass panel. For £40 what else can you expect? Was a bit awkward to build in, so cable management was a bit tough (hence why it's so bad, also the fact this is my first build) It also has pretty good airflow, so that's nice. There's not much really to say about the case other than that it's nice looking and does the job well.
PSU Can't really say anything here, does the job I guess?
Peripherals I got the keyboard and mouse for half price, so thought why not. Nice keyboard, nice mouse. G Romer switches and RGB. Monitor was actually only 60hz, was a bit surprised. It says 75hz in the title and when it also arrived, the box also says 75hz but behold, once you start using it you figure out that it's only 60hz. I'm not too bothered though, it happens I guess.
Final words Overall build took around 3 hours to make. Cable management was terrible, but eh it doesn't really bother me. I'm really happy with this build though. Feel free to ask any questions.
