The Equipment I Use: http://www.geekawhat.com/?p=299

For the CPU in this system I selected AMD’s new Ryzen 5 2600, with a base clock speed of 3.4Ghz and boost of upto 3.9GHz you get some snappy single threaded performance, working well for more poorly optimised older titles. The 6 core, 12 thread design also works very well for newer titles that are very multi-thread heavy!

Sitting on the B350 chipset, the MSI B350M MORTAR is a superb budget-oriented motherboard from MSI which provides the necessary features at an affordable price tag, including USB 3, M.2 support and overclocking! With a striking black and red colour scheme it works really well with the rest of the system to create a great performing and looking system!

For the RAM here I selected a single 8GB dimm of Corsair’s Vengeance LPX. Paving the way for easy upgrades, this dimm features a low profile, stealthy black design and fast 3000Mhz clock speed!

For the storage in this build a 1TB Seagate Barracuda gives 1000GB of capacity for movies, music, games and your Windows OS. There isn’t really much more to it!

The MSI Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 features MSI’s signature black and red, dual fan cooler, with a striking design. The 6GB frame buffer on this higher end GTX 1060 helps when rendering textures and using features such as Anti Aliasing!.

Cooler Master’s new K500 case is a great value addition to Cooler Master’s extensive range of chassis. With the essentials covered, including a large sidepanel, USB 3 and easy build experience it does all we need very well! …oh and it’s RGB!

When picking a power supply it’s important to get a unit with enough wattage (but not overkill!), an 80+ efficiency rating and solid reputation. This 650W Cooler Master unit fits the bill perfectly!

  1. I'M BACK! Through a combination of illness & holidays I ended up taking a bit of a break, but I'm back with some more killer PC content! Been working hard on evolving the PC Build format, and this is the first iteration of that 🙂 Let me know what you think!

  2. 800 is my budget, do you genuinely feel like I can do any better for this price? I'm relatively noobish to PC and need help, thanks

  3. 800 is my budget, do you genuinely feel like I can do any better for this price? I'm relatively noobish to PC and need help, thanks.

  4. Can you test rust please if this gets good 60 to 70 fps on high pop servers i'll definitely be buying this please let me know please

  5. If I was to stream using this pc while playing games like Fortnite, will I still have good performance? Or do you think there should be some things I should switch since I will be streaming.

  6. o got the exact same scpes as you but with 2600x i found sale wich made mine roughy around 790
    i found a 190$ r5 2600x a 25$hdd and a 20$ case

    o bought all of these in local stores not online if ur wondering

  7. This will be almost same as mine just i will be getting the b450 as they quite cheap here 16gb vengeance mem and the Cooler Master MasterBox MB500 with an rx580.I don't know he it is everywhere else but here the rog stryix gpu's are like 1k more than the msi/gigabyte etc.

  8. To be honest I recommend everyone go for a cheaper 1070 find the cheapest from pc part picker because 8gb is better than 6gb with rgb

  9. Wait so if I buy everything that he linked in the description will I have a fully functional PC ready to game at high performance? Or do I need other stuff?
