Great clean build! Can you try to set the light to white? I think it will looks better IMHO.

Kudos for being able to keep your old PC running for almost a decade.

Your GPU being only 4 GB of VRAM wont be a problem for 1080p gaming.

I was responding to this:

Ive also had people say the GPU only being 4GB could be a problem..

Well it is lower than base clock stated in pcpp's page for that card. Not too much tho and temps arent that high, but could be better

Have you tried to run it with removed side panel? I suggest you to try that and see if it helps. If it is then maybe you can add one more intake fan at the front to helps airflow.

Nice build! You did some great cable management there!

For your thermal throttling rx580 tho, you might want to look more into that. I know it is rx580 but it shouldn't be that bad.

Would love everyones opinion on the first upgrades I should do

Well then, dont mind if I do.

Your motherboard definitely needs an upgrade, you cant OC by using A320 board and will be quite a risk if you want to upgrade to better proccie down the line. I strongly suggest you get at least b450 board to ensure upgradability if not outright longetivity. I also hope that you didnt paid $280 for the 2600x.

Also, I saw that in the desc your gpu are 1650 instead of super. If by chance it is then you should check for 1650 super price in your region, you should get 1650 super instead if the price arent that different. You should be good for quite a while with that card. Lastly I think you should add a mass storage (hard driver) as I think 512 gb are not that large considering game file sizes these days.

Edit: great cable management btw!

Great build and great setup!

I know this PC primary use are gaming, but do be careful if you decide to store important data that you cant afford to lose in either of those two used storage drive.

Great build! You've done pretty good cable management even tho it is your first build.

Digging your part selection, it is pretty well balanced. But I am a sucker for MSI's B450 Tomahawk, so at that $109 I'd say you should get that instead.

I plugged the power in wrong...

I dont know why I was expecting some (dirty) jokes after that line.

Btw, nice looking build. Tho you sure paid quite a lot for a 4gb 570 and a 16gb of 3200C16 memory .

Nice looking build! Quite a unique cable routing there for your gpu's power cable.

Btw I've heard quite the bad thing about that motherboard. It said that the vrm of that particular model gets really hot that it throttle the cpu. Have you experienced something along those lines?

I mean, looks are subjective right? And computer are primarily a tool in the first place. So by that standard your build are one heck of a reliable beast! Love your parts decision!

Great build!

I wonder if it would have been better if you get 3600 with stock cooler, cheaper mobo, memory, and psu in favor of better (IPS 1440p165) display?

Great build! It sure looks clean.

But I suggest for you to move one of the fan in the back to the front to act as a proper intake so you have neutral air pressure in your case.

Also, for that budget you should have gone with cheaper motherboard and case imho, assuming price listed here are what you paid. Your ssd's price listed here are also double the price of some other ssd with similar capacity.

With all those saving you should be able to aim for at least a 5600xt or even a 5700.

You sir/ma'am sure have a neat setup!

While you're at it, how about you wait until ampere (30 series) shows up instead opting to 2070s or 5700xt?

If I might suggest you should get the pump res combo instead to free up some space to make it looks cleaner.

That is literally a high class piece of art! You did an amazing job keeping it functional until now! Totally agree with adding an ssd can easily help make an older system snappier, even with only a sata2

Altho, somewhere in my heart I expect to see WinXP as the OS. But I suppose you need to get minimum Win7 to make it functional today isn't it?

Although I think you should've gone with cheaper psu and/or ram in exchange of an ssd. It should make your system snappier.

It sure is a piece of art! I was wondering why would you pair a 3700x+4400 ram with an rx570, but it does make sense as a stopgap gpu.

Also, nice play on the name there!

Great build! I do think that your mobo and ram choice are on the expensive side assuming you paid what is listed here. Also, do you have any plan upgrading your monitor to 1440p100+? That 2070s certainly more than capable to do that.

Ah yes, certainly if you upgrade the cooler it is assumed that you'll do OC, so additional wattage would helps right?
