Since building this PC price to performance system I have been steadily upgrading it in terms of looks and performance, nothing crazy like a new CPU or Graphics Card. Things such as replacing the stock AMD cooler, a new hard drive (a definite upgrade from the two 320Gb HDD's I pulled from 10+ year old systems, one of which on the verge of failing), a new keyboard and an actual monitor, and, oh yeah, 3 case changes!
Awesome CPU for the money!
Keeps my CPU at about 34°c while idle, 50-60°c while under load, looks good and performs well.
Haven't run into any problems with this motherboard, except for the USB 3.0's plastic shroud coming off of the pins when disassembling to move my PC to a new case. Not an issue, just pushed the shroud back into where it should go and it was alright. Definitely not a problem with the motherboard, I admit I was a little rough with it, plus it works just fine. Got this bundled with my CPU and saved ~10 dollars.
Snagged these a little bit before the prices got crazy, had no issues with frequencies and that sort of thing that "comes" with Ryzen.
Took this out of a laptop and was planning to migrate my OS onto it, haven't come around to doing that yet.
Also taken out of a laptop, no longer needed since installing a new a 2tb drive. Used to have my games installed on here, not bad.
$60 for 2TB, pretty good, as everyone knows, HDD's don't usually have the exact GB's as said due to it being reserved or something but that is no issue to me. Works great and I hope to be able to keep it in my systems for as long as it lasts :)
Somehow this card can manage do play 1440p 60hz games just fine!! I don't even know how. By 'games' i'm talking about GTA V, Battlefield 1, and many more. Albeit, more demanding games do get lower fps as expected (45-60fps as I've seen with medium-high settings). But for the price this thing is very impressive! Also, to match my build I have Plasti Dipped it white and it may have taken me more than one try to get it to look perfect but I think I did a good job the last time I painted it.
I love this case so much! I got it as a little birthday gift to myself soon after it released in white and it makes my build look so much better than when it was in different enclosures. Also, the mesh really helps keep the temperatures low and the frames per second high :). Well, maybe not physically but the airflow keeps everything cool enough to preform very well under stress.
Got this refurbished for $60 on Newegg. I could have gotten the 650 watt semi-modular power supply for the same price but Im not even using over 400 watts over load so there wouldn't be a point. Pretty cool unit.
These fans suck air into and out of my PC, but are far from sucking ;). Sorry for the sh?tty pun. (can I say sh?t on here with out the ??)
Got off Craigslist for $70, thought I got scammed because the day I went to pick it up the guy said there was no power cable and I couldn't test it before handing him the money. I Ordered a $15 power supply for it online and waited to see a broken screen when I was able to plugged it in. Thankfully everything worked just fine! It really looks great, especially for what I got it for!!
Got the Cherry MX Silent model as a refurb off of amazon for about $85, I also picked up an extended mouse pad for $15. Pretty keyboard with tons of customization :).
I found this at an apartment I helped clean out, the left click is pretty janky and the whole thing itself is showing its age. I was thinking of getting a new mouse soon because this one is costing me rounds in Counter Strike!
Bad headset, even for the price I got it. Broke after a couple of months of owning it, however I needed a USB headset because for some reason my motherboards audio outputs seem to be shot and I can't get any sound through them, oh well.
Cheap and good! I barely use these anyway so why waste money on nice speakers?!
