Hello all, I'd like to introduce you to SNOWBALL 2.0. this build has been a long time coming and this is the latest iteration. I use it exclusively for gaming/web browsing. What started out as a small $500 budget rig has evolved into this. I know i needed to upgrade from my old fx 8350 system ( check it out here ) and Ryzen was the stepping stone i needed. I didn't wanna break the bank with this build so i spent a lot of waiting for sales, using Facebook Marketplace, craigslist ect. By doing so i was able to save quite a bit.
The build process itself was rather straight forward and everything worked right out of the box. I will say to anyone interested in getting the Core P3, TAKE YOUR TIME. I could've saved half an hr in build time had i took my time and thoroughly examined the manual on how to put it together.
The Ryzen 1600x paired with the 1080ti performs very well for my needs. I enjoy playing many AAA titles such as GTA V, Assassins Creed, BF1, FO4, Farcry 5, and Destiny 2 among others. Playing on an ultrawide is an incredibly immersive gaming experience, I cant go back 16:9 now lol.
I doubt i will be able to do much more with this build as I'm getting married in October! Please tell me what you guys think, and thanks for being such an awesome community!
