Hey Guys! Here's my very basic 'soon to be' dual pc desk build which will consist of my budget 'ish gaming rig and wife's workstation!
There are so many awesome builds here and people have all kinds of tools, complete workshops at their disposal at home that I'm almost embarrassed of showing it here but anyway.
I'm trying to make the most out of our money, trying my best to research and choose pc parts that fall into 'best bang for your buck". So this is not a SUPER build with fancy stuff and awesome little details and honestly I am very very happy with the result so far.
I have extra cost with shipping which limits my decisions, spent almost 200$ with shipping which would allow me certainly jump a category in CPU or GPU. Only reason I'm saying this is to share how difficult it's been to achieve this.
The desk has numerous designs flaws.
It turned out to be a little bit to tall (adjusting chair height almost elevates my feet off the ground);
It is maybe 10cm narrow than it should be (I feel that I'm to close to the monitor, maybe mounting to the wall will help)
The height clearance miscalculations for the GPU didn't allow me to use the intended layout creating a big puzzle to solve room issues;
The GPU stays very close to the glass which makes it very warm and make my arms sweat lol.
The acrylic turned out to be harder to work with than what I thought it would be, so It still needs a lot of work to create something decent and that actually allows avirflow to the case.
It's been only a couple of days that I assembled it and there's tons of tweaking to do like actually building the second PC, work on cable management, functionality, airflow etc.
Final setup will hopefully consist of:
Value$ Gaming Rig:
Ryzen 3000 (R5 3600 or R7 3700 depending on reviews after launch) GTX 1080 FTW (bought used) G.skill tridentZ RGB 3200mhz Asrock B450M steel legend MSI MAG241C 144hz Monitor
Budget Workstation: Ryzen 5 1600 (already bought) GTX 1060 / RX 580 16gb ddr4 ram (still deciding) Asrock B450M steel legend Asus 24" Monitor
So that's it, I'll update it as I make progress and as money allows.
So come on, feel free to rate it, give ideas and criticize!
