Description

All AMD budget build. I have gotten a new graphics card, monitor, mouse, keyboard, and headset since the original posting: https://pcpartpicker.com/b/fk3bt6

I have been slowly upgrading and waiting for sales. The wait was worth it. I got a new rx590 from sapphire for $80 off, and the monitor $40 off. Everything in this build, cost around $1000. I hope this is proof for you that you don't need Intel to be able to play high demanding games, as the cost of this build, includes all peripherals, including the monitor that is 144hz.

The thing you see behind my setup is a little art project I did for fun using a old piece of plank wood and old circuit boards, which I then painted.

My CPU does not get over 52c while gaming, around the same for the GPU. During benchmarking and stress tests, the CPU peaks at around 62c and the GPU at 64c.

Everything is at max settings on a 1080p 144hz monitor.

Csgo: 194fps

Heaven (Ultra): 64fps

Assassins Creed Unity (Yes, I haven't bought very many good games): 221fps

Ill try to post more results later

I apologize for the photo quality, as I have a cheaper phone

I plan on getting vr eventually, and upgrading the ram to a 16Gb kit from G.skill. If you guys have any questions, please ask, and game on!

Great build man. 1080p 144hz with the 590 + Ryzen 5 = a great experience. Yes, upgrade that RAM!!! Love air cooled cpu builds.

Thanks! Ive made up my mind that the ram is the last thing I need to upgrade before spending money on games instead of parts lol

Hey man how do you like your Ryzen and RX 590 combo? Im doing the same build and I just need an opinion on it before buying, is there anything u wish u bought in exchange before hand? Thanks!

I have zero regrets with my purchases, other than if I waited 6 months, I could have gotten the ryzen 5 for around 60 dollars less. I am very satisfied with the preformance with the two, as playing games on 144hz is really amazing. The only thing I would suggest is to see if any of the new gen of CPUs are in your price range as they have better efficiency. Also, make sure if you get a motherboard that has a bios that supports your CPU without updating it. So a B450 or AX470 would support zen series (like the 2600) and the AX570 for the zen 2 (the new one). That way you don't have to find a APU to update your bios. As for the rx590, it runs extremely well. If you get the the same model I got, be weary of the color scheme if you want to match your build, it ended up working for me as I just changed the color of my rgb fans. I hope this helps and good luck with your build!

Edit: I also would recommend the monitor I got as it plays beautifully at a very low price point. There is a black version as well. Took me a bit to figure out why I couldn't get it to 144hz instead of 60hz. You have to go to display settings in windows and manually change it to 144hz. It's pretty simple

Also, the graphics card is still on sale, and I would suggest getting it while it still is. So is the CPU

Thanks so much for the reply, I will definitely take these things into consideration! I’m very new to the PC world coming from a console. Is it cool by any chance if you can take a look over my list and see if the parts would fit right with each other? I was just looking for monitors, I found a cheap 144 hz monitor (only for $170-180, thinking of getting a new one in the future because of the budget im on right now) so hopefully it can run well. Im not sure if the monitors HDM’s and the DisplayPort will fit into my motherboard (or graphics card haha sorry im new to this). It is the LG Ultragear 24GL600F-B. Thanks man.

No problem. That monitor looks good. You plug it in to your graphics card via displayport. Which part list?

Wow, nice selection. Only thing I would change is maybe the case. But thats more of personal preference although, some cases have more features. A friend of mine has that case, it isnt the best, but it will do.

Hi I have a pc with similar componentes and I am palnning to change mi psu to this one. Does it sound loud?

Nope not at all, at my school we had a PSU tester and with it running I couldn't hear the fan at all, it is very quiet, the fan puts out a good amount of air, and it powers my system very well.
