Description

If you saw my previous build I built a $350 console killer for my school friend, my other school friend saw and asked me to build him one for $530 which I did. I know it says $577 but we got a few parts on sale during black Friday and cyber Monday sales and got to around $525. It runs fortnite really well and he is very happy with it!

I had same case, and was never impressed with it. After I got my newer PSU, I was done.

I'm highly impressed with your knowledge. When I was 13 I was constantly looking for deals on hardware and basically trying to make a reasonable build. As an 18 year old I can strongly say that you know more than I did at 13 lol.

Neat. Not how I would have budgeted it out (I would have dropped down to a 2200G and gotten a better PSU and a SSD) but what works works.

I'll give you a 6/10 for this build i also would've changed out the PSU for a better one and add an SSD for the boot drive but all an all not bad for the budget you had.

For the price that you made this build, you could have gotten better for a lower price. I would have gone with a ryzen 3 2200G, 2x8 Gb of RAM for under $100, and a RX 570, like you did. The CPU and mobo prices would be lower because of this, thus allowing you to get a possibly better mobo. I'm not trying to be rude, just trying to suggest that maybe some things could be different about the build. +1 for the great looking PC still!

Thanks. I will do more research next time.

not a bad build, but get a better psu and add an ssd. The case can be changed and here is a better one.
