Description

This is my 8-year-old 2010 iMac replacement that really saved me as I got to the point in which I couldn't even run League of Legends. Built with a Ryzen 7 and RX 580, this build was aimed at gaming, streaming, developing, rendering, simulation, and school. This is the first PC that I have ever built. There were numerous problems that occured during the build including: 1) Obtaining a boot-kit from AMD to update my BIOS 2) Making sure that the motherboard standoffs were actually installed correctly :thinking: 3) My power supply burring out after it had been installed upside down and I had to get a new one

Here's a simple list of the breakdown of my build:

Ryzen 7 2700X: Very powerful and essential of simulation and rendering. Also rocks that awesome cooler!

MSI B350M PRO-VD PLUS: Simple motherboard that's easily debugable and fits my build perfectly.

G.Skill Aegis 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-3000 RAM wasn't much of a concern but 16 GB is what you need.

Samsung 850 EVO-Series 250GB 2.5" SSD Amazing boot times! Also using this for some of my more-used apps as well.

Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Basic 1TB. Also used an old 500 GB hard drive to total my storage at 1.75 TB.

Gigabyte Radeon RX 580 8GB Gaming 8G Definitely is a great design and provides awesome power a great price.

Corsair 270R ATX Mid Tower Sleek, low-profile case that that has good sound management and I got at a great price. Would recommend to any first-time builder.

Cooler Master MasterWatt 550W Except for it burning out, this is a very easy-to-use PSU.

Microsoft Windows 10 Home OEM 64-bit I'm a Mac OS user. I had to buy it (but would take OSX any day).

Gigabyte GC-WB867D-I PCI-Express WiFi? Too far away for ethernet.

Acer G246HLAbd and Acer GN246HL These are amazing monitors. The G246HLAbd is a bit off in color compared to the other so in the future I might buy a second GN246HL. Would recommend the GN246HL to any gamer.

Corsair K55 RGB Wired Gaming, Logitech M325 Wireless Optical, Logitech Z323 30W 2.1ch The K55 is a great deal and Corsair iCue and their other products makes this a great choice. The mouse I already owned and I needed speakers because I certainly couldn't take them out of a Mac.

Comment below! I'd love to hear your feedback!

Part Reviews

CPU

Super-powerful CPU and AMD was a great help when it came to getting a boot-kit.

Motherboard

Great first-time-builder board and easily expandable and debugable.

A fast boot-time SSD with available storage to add other apps you want to load faster.

Storage

No sound problems whatsoever. Would recommend.

Video Card

Awesome graphics card for any gamer. Even works well with simulation. Would recommend.

Awesome sleek, low-profile design and minimizes sound output greatly. Would recommend.

Low-noise first-time-builder recommended PSU.

Would recommend.

Wireless Network Adapter

Easy install for first-time builder. Would recommend.

Great monitor that matches with other great Acer monitors like the GN246HL. Would recommend.

The best gaming monitor out there right now. It does not have a forwards-backwards tilt but has a great backlight and is essential in every gaming build.

Keyboard

Awesome deal for your money. Goes great with other Corsair products!

Mouse

Good mouse, not the greatest dongle.

Speakers

Amazing speakers that produce amazing sound. No problems other than the wire management is a hassle.

can you save the cable management?

philphaser 12 Builds 1 point 9 months ago

i 2nd this appeal!

dgibbs7041 3 Builds 1 point 9 months ago

Right? I don't care if it is the non-windowed version of the case, cables exist to be managed.

philphaser 12 Builds 1 point 8 months ago

I wouldn't know of any other purpose.

Yes 'm going to get some ties later. I haven't had the time to do so currently.

hitechplumber69 1 point 1 month ago

if your talking about ties then you not in full comprehension of what cable management is. take all the cables and put them on the other side of the mother board then you will have a machine that will look a lot better

WheatFarmer337 1 point 9 months ago

This is a very nice build. I'd recommend managing your cables though. Good job :)

PixelatedHam 1 Build 1 point 7 months ago

+1 for the great build!

HiroNewf 1 point 2 months ago

Nice setup. The cable management is bad but i mean you knew that. The cables are going to be a pain with that glass desk you have. You are going to need a lot of stuff. If it is an options i would recommend routing them through the wall. With the glass desk this will be the cleanest and probably easiest option. But other than that it is a great setup! the choice of mouse is kinda weird. Are you doing any gaming? If so than you need a different mouse. If not the mouse is still not the best, but if it is working for you than I guess its fine. +1

I'm in love with your setup, and more specifically, the room you chose for it. Overall great build, just put a few minutes into cable management when you get a chance. Nice job man

I used HDMI for my GN246HL and DVI for the G246HL (it had DVI).
