I do not game so I skimped on the graphics card. I actually found the rx 570 for 40$ on Craigslist. The rest of the build was designed for quick boots and fast startup of heavy Ides along with quicker compilation times of software.
Almost went with the 2700x because of the extra cores but changed my mind at the last minute as I don't exclusively develop software targeting multiple cores.
My goal was to keep this under 600$. Once I bought the red cable extensions what I actually paid was 650$. I will be building more. This was quite fun building a PC even if it was a budget one!
Always have had Intel. I still like Intel, but this ryzen 3600 seems like such a better value and though only a few days into the build it is performing like a great value.
Love the look and feel for the price. Most coolers of this quality tend to go for a bit more. These are great bang for your buck!
Possible bios update messed with my read/write speeds with pcie SSD. Otherwise good value board from trusted manufacturer.
Not sure if it's the Toshiba or MSI bios update but right after a bios update my read/write speeds were cut in half. Still faster than the 3d ssd, so it's not like it's hurting that much for the price. I will try to roll back bios and revise this if things improve.
If it does I will revise this review.
Great bang for buck. Pairs nicely with the ryzen 3600.
Absolutely awesome case. Though I don't have much to compare it too. It was my first build. All I care about is aesthetics. Everything seems to stay nice and cool as well!
