Description

This computer was made to replace my PS4 and to provide a better computer for some heavy data analysis and scripting for upcoming grad school coursework in Data Science. Wanted to make a Ryzen build to take advantage of the extra cores and threads without paying for an i7. Paired it up with 16gb of 3000 RAM and a 1060 6gb for fun on the weekends playing Fortnite and R6S among others.

Very happy with the end result of my first build. Not a whole lot of pictures of the process, but I had fun learning how to put it all together!

I got a few good deals thanks to the Microcenter near my house and Amazon Prime Day sales.

Thanks to everyone who helped in building this part list!

your losing performance, move the gpu to the top pci-e slot!

I originally had the GPU lower because of the led on the mobo. Now that I installed the led strip, I guess I can block that. Thanks!

Oooh a decent budget build for gaming and education. Loving the solid black color and specs are great. +1
