Thank you so much for going in depth!! I have a chance to get a 2600x used from a lad for $100 which is great, is 450w a hindrance for me if i wanted to upgrade the gpu to a 5700xt?
The point of me saying that is just what to shoot for. I'm gonna be turning down settings where it's needed to achieve 144. But my hope is to have high settings where I can.
fractal design define nano s, thanks!
Thanks all for commenting!
I'm thinking I might go with something closer to the last comments (Pawacorn)'s build. It's a bit cheaper and closer to my budget. My hope is to snag an x470 itx mobo that drops price after Zen 2 is released. I don't really want to spend the extra money on a processor right now (which Zen 2 will be more expensive.) So I will focus more on GPU. Zen 2 will have to be a future upgrade. Also, I really gotta try to cut the cost of this build where I can.
Let me know if you see more pros and cons to this list!
Did you have a hard time getting the ram to 3200mhz?
Did you have any issues getting the ram to 3200mhz?
Did you have problems getting the ram to 3200mhz on this mobo?
Any issues with the ram hitting 3200mhz?
Oh my gosh thank you so much that was extremely helpful. Thank you for that in depth answer!!!
Honestly not sure, it’s for a friend of mine I’m doing this as a gift. She doesn’t really know anything about computers but does a lot of photo and video editing. Can you give me two routes to go?
Thanks so much about the airflow! Hmm I think the Tree of Gondor would be really cool and it'd definitely be doable, but I don't have the budget to build one. I don't think I would be able to make a profit off it considering this one isn't selling easy.
Thanks so much! Yeah I’m disappointed with the space that is available to me. I am a young guy recently married with a low budget and student debt keeping us in a small apartment. I 100% would love it if I could get a better and wider desk. Thanks again
An LED strip is lined on the left and right side of the Eye. The light is reflecting off the white acrylic behind the transparent spots.
If you are lookin to save money and build one yourself I can provide assistance if you want. I enjoy doing it and answering all questions and even will FaceTime you if you need for help building.
Cause for $900 you could have a better system, but this is a decent price for a prebuilt
Awesome appreciate it much for giving your explanation and help. Thanks so much
okay, just looking to lower my cost as much as possible. So you wouldn't trust this dell 80+ psu? https://www.amazon.com/HIGH-POWER-TFX-300W-Certified-Efficiency/dp/B077Y1TFVC/ref=sr_1_1?s=pc&ie=UTF8&qid=1543279000&sr=1-1&keywords=tfx+power+supply&refinements=p_n_feature_three_browse-bin%3A16955316011%7C16955317011%7C16955319011
How do you figure it's a fire hazard? Thanks for the help
Good points all around, you've actually talked me out of getting one xD
I'll just leave me comp on from now on
I want an m.2 enough to pay more than a SATA ssd
Thanks for the info! Would love it if you could help.....the case is optional to be something different. I just wanna do a no nonsense tiny build. Also
I do want to keep the ram at 16 gigs.
Hey Moto, so just to let you know that link didnt work for me....maybe you should screenshot the list for me?
As for atx v m-atx....A lot of this depends on the look you are going for/ what you want. Private message me and ill give you my phone number and I can answer any questions that you have live.
Looks sick! +1
Recommended to put an 1 in led strip under power button to match your color scheme better (:
In this specific case he has it connected to a fan controller separate from the mobo
Hi! Question: Does your exhaust fan do enough work to keep it cool no matter how hard you are running your computer? You can't have that fan connected into the CPU Header...so I just was wondering how that works?
Thanks for all the links, here is my reply so you don't miss it
"This is going to be a heavily modded case guys. Making a side panel glass, and it's supposed to be a high upgradeable system once the market comes back down. I didn't buy the psu yet. I was going for the sfx because I wanted room to make some cool acrylic mods."

Oh my gosh! Your build just opened my eyes to my next build! So excited. This is beautiful by the way! +1 for you!
I've been planning the last week, trying to figure out how to work with the QBX case. What a great idea with using the area for the power supply with a radiator! I'm scared of liquid cooling because I feel I would spill water on my components.....any tips? Admire the minimal amount of wires! How are the temps on the gpu? Do you plan to try to fit fans under it?
Where did you get the custom grill from?
Nice build! Bang for your buck for sure!
One thing I'm gonna comment about your PSU even though you say we shouldnt....even if you turn it off after using, you should be worried about burn up while playing not only for being afraid of fires at your home...but also ruining the rest of the computer that you've built.
Simple thing that my OCD is forcing me to say: That racing mobo has a software tool to change the LED Colors. You can match that Red that came with your case!
Hi! Let's say I wanted to minimally play NES games on this system and watch netflix at 1080p. What would be the minimal GPU I should get?
Also, where do you get all these emulators?
Thanks! Great build btw
Wow thanks for the quick reply! Can I use the stock cooler in this? Could you also recommend a good small cooler to fit?
probably a little to slow the 1030 in my opinion depending on what games you plan on playing. I bet you could get something decent and new at $70 on newegg
yes it does
It depends on the cases for rosewill. They sell many cheap ones and you can go often wrong with rosewill, but if you look at reviews on YouTube you'll find a gem or two for rosewill line cases.
As far as the 1050 goes....just watch it's pricing on pcpartpicker....that's all I can recommend besides looking for a used 1050 on Craigslist.
I did and it beeps at me
1+2, 1+3 combos beep continuously
2+4 and 3+4 don't beep with no post
Yes both work seperately
Yes I did.
Absolutely, first overwatch runs on most pc's it doesn't take much. And I haven't tested this myself but benchmarks on YouTube say that the minimum Frame rate they got was 74 fps which means it'll handle it just fine.
Thanks! So much (:
Thanks! Very helpful!
No, it's more because the game isn't optimized. Like I said, builds better than mine(better gpu's) sometimes run worse. Because no gpu runs a game the same. It's just the makers of the game needing to fix their game more since it is still in early access
Good to hear! Message me when building if you have any questions. Just to let you know, battlegrounds still isn't optimized so I don't always get the best frames etc. So I do turn down the settings that marginally change the looks (v-sync and post-processing.) But like i said it only changes the looks marginally and it makes it run better. (Even PC's with better hardware than mine experience the same thing)
League is ran on ultra no problem and I also play guild wars 2 which runs on ultra with no problems.
I have fans at the top that exhaust, and one in the back I fixed (:
I didn't do any. So no?
