Description

I originally built this computer for gaming back in early 2016 with 750 ti, 8GB of Corsair Vengeance LPX, 1TB WD Blue, 750 ti, and a 430W Corsair PSU. Decided to upgrade for no reason, and I'm honestly satisfied with this build.

I really wanted to use a Vertical GPU mount to show off this beefy fans, but ain't got no money and this Graphics card is so thick, i don't think it's even going to fit in my case, unless i leave the side panel open

I think around $900 for this performance is pretty cost-effective Only thing left to do is grinding PUBG!

Part Reviews

CPU

Kaby Lake was not a thing in early 2016, and i did not wanted to spend more money for 0.1Ghz improvement in clock speed or overclocking. Running pretty cool with stock cooler and still performs perfectly.

Motherboard

It was a best deal when i looked for B150M. Z170 was a waste, H110 is just stupid.

Memory

Great looking RGB RAM. because the RAM price is insanely high right now, even with $50 off it was $159 but i think it's worth it.

Storage

I hate having bad cable-management so decided to go M.2 form factor SSD and minimize cables.

Video Card

GREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEAT looking GPU, lovely RGB, beefy fans and backplate. It is pretty expensive compare to other 1060 6GB. Also it's performance is way better than i expected, easily handling PUBG High quality settings. Oddly enough, it does require 8-pin power connector. one down side is because this GPU is so thick, i could not use the expansion slot, which used to hold Wi-Fi card, but whatever use Ethernet cable or buy full ATX

Case

I have no idea why i bought this case, but it does come with 2 red LED 120mm front and back case fans, so that's nice

Power Supply

430W was definitely not enough to power all these RGB and power-hungry GPU, so decided to buy this PSU which had a best deal

Don't know how optimized PUBG is now, but with the same specs, I was struggling to get consistent 60fps when it first released in March, at the time, even my friend rocking an i7-6700 with a 1080 was struggling.

Yes it can run it, but its not a kill it even at competitive specs. Also want to note, you should probably upgrade your keyboard if you're ganna game as the one you have may deteriorate much quicker for your use.

First, this keyboard is perfectly fine, it's not a random free keyboard. I purposely bought this keyboard because it's quiet and the response time is pretty fast

Second, PUBG released multiple updates since March, especailly after PC 1.0 update PUBG is pretty optimized. Even before these updates, i was able to at lesat get 50fps in medium settings with 750 ti

never said it was a bad keyboard, I just don't think it will last long if you plan on doing a lot of gaming on it.

also heard PUBG 1.0 was somehow worse initially but maybe it's been patched. What FPS are you getting? I may plan on playing it again if its really that much more optimized.

PUBG is much more optimized now. With an i5 7600k @ 4.9 and an asus 1060 6gb I get a pretty consistent 70 fps at all high settings. I love my 1060 and cant recommend it enough as a value buy.
