Description

Finally built a rig I'm happy to show off.

Have been slowly building this rig since 2014.

Started with

AMD - FX-4300 3.8GHz Quad-Core Processor

Gigabyte - GA-970A-DS3P ATX AM3+ Motherboard

Kingston - HyperX Fury Black 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3-1866 Memory

Asus - Radeon R9 270 2GB upgraded to MSI - GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 4GB Video Card

Zalman - Z11 Plus ATX Mid Tower Case

Silverstone - Strider Essential 600W 80+ Certified ATX Power Supply

Upgrading ram to 16+ gigs (currently only clocking at 2666 due to ryzen limitations/crashes) and cpu within the next year.

The people who said the R3 was not a good choice for the 1070 don't know that the single core performance is good enough for a 1070 overclocked. Great build!

The 2200G is equal to the i5 7500, yet nobody would be complaining if you went with the i5...

I'd understand getting the R3 from this perspective if you're planning to upgrade to a 2nd Gen R5 or R7 or even 1st gen, but within that budget range I would've taken the money from the motherboard and put it into the cpu since having an x470 with a 2200g doesn't seem logical IMO.

Aesthetically it likes thicc.

Where some games are more CPU dependent, you are going to see some frame drops. The Ryzen 3 2200g isn’t great when paired up with a beefy gpu. I suggest upgrading to a Ryzen 5 1600 or try to overclock the 2200g to 3.9Ghz to minimize the bottleneck.

Still a good looking pc, 2200g aside. Seems like an odd choice.

i would explain why you have the 2200g in your description. i assume you plan to upgrade your cpu later on since you have a masterliquid?

why not? was on a budget when I bought the cpu. Have been slowly building this rig since 2014. I started with an FX 4350 so this was a HUGE upgrade.
