Description

Using it for gaming mainly. So far so great.

Part Reviews

CPU

well I had a 4770 before, I switched to this since I wanted an upgrade to keep up with technology and future proof myself, kinda a success since this costed 120k HUF...6 cores 12 threads, all the latest and greatest, works stable on 5ghz, great.

CPU Cooler

well the size and brand tells pretty much everything. Do not OC a 8700k to 5ghz with this, otherwise it keeps it under 30c on idle, under 60 on load. It has 6 years of warranty, never had a single weird noise from the fans. Quality.

Thermal Compound

one of the best quality paste on the market.

Motherboard

Love this one, every single component is quality. You can tell just buy looking at it. Every slot is reinforced which I use, it can handle OC like a pro with the increased voltage...thing (check it on the website), lots of fan and rgb headers. I've always had gigabyte motherboards, never had concerns, not gonna change this tradition.

Memory

on stock it runs on 2666 but with XMP it flawlessly works on 3200, I put it on 3600 once, it was stable and fine but went back to 3200 since there were no difference in real life scenarios like games. It's sleek, small passive cooling, fits nicely with huge coolers like the noctua, not a single problem.

Storage

Well, crucial is a great brand, you can expect reliability and speed. I'm planning to switch to m2 nvme soon.

Storage

it was good 5 years ago, now it's just a pain, I'm used to SSD like speed so switching to nvme m2 soon for this one too.

Video Card

The only thing I recommend when you are planning to buy a powerful GPU like this, Only.Buy.3fan.Cards...!!! I've had 3 RTX 2070. I took all back because the cooling was just useless. Under OC I got 85 celsius, with this (under OC) It's not going above 63 celsius. Wonderful.

Case

I was able to pick this on a sale for only 25k HUF, I've had an enormous Thermaltake before, I picked this because I wanted a little smaller case, so far so great.

Operating System

it...works? with a lots of updates.

Monitor

I've had a really hard time picking a new monitor. I had a full HD TN 144hz 1ms Asus monitor before and I literally spent months on looking at monitors, checking reviews, buyer comments, yt videos etc and I almost went with an IPS gaming panel from LG but it costed 40 thousand HUF more and the only thing which was a difference is the panel type. I chose this because it has almost the same colour accuracy and IPS glowing isn't a thing on VA, however I was really afraid how the picture would look from different angles but it's just beautiful, don't have a single concern with it. I use it in cinema mode since it has the most vibrant colour profile, everything just pops out, eye candy for sure, fast as hell, g-sync works flawlessly and...yeah it's a beauty.

Only once concern I can mention, the stand. It is enormous...I had to change desk for that to fit but then I decided to just mount it on the wall and put the stand back to the box because it just unnecessarily takes sooo much space. The wall mounting kit I bought was just 5 thousand HUF and it's a sturdy, stable one, full stainless steel so it wasn't really a big cost.

Keyboard

I was looking for a wireless keyboard for gaming which is reliable and I was able to catch it on a sale, I can tell you that the signal never ever drops even for a sec, it has a thousand hz refresh rate, sadly no lighting but monitor lights it up pretty much, also I can type blindly so it's not a problem for me. So, no rgb at all but it does the job and I never changed the batteries yet and using it for more then 8 months now. Flawless.

Mouse

Kinda same review as for the keyboard, battery change only happened once and using it since last year September, not a single signal drop occurred, precise, thousand hz, love it.

Headphones

ok, for the price tag, this could be better. I had to replace it 3 times, logitech sent me new ones and I could keep the old ones but I expected better quality for a 50 thousand HUF headphone. The sound is great and RGB is also there but I had minor problems, like the headband came off, the volume scroll thing stutters...soo it's not a bad one, if you can get an actual piece which is working as intended.

Speakers

This is an interesting one, I had a Harman Kardon Go Play but I sold that because I realized that why on the earth would I need a wireless speaker for my desktop PC so I bought these, I was concerned first because...well...I switched from a brand like HK to Logitech and speaker wise I didn't have a single experience with Logitech only with headphones. I have to tell you, this thing should cost double...what it costs now. I was able to get it new from store for only 47k HUF, and the bass...oh my god, it feels like when you're sitting in a movie theater watching a film trailer and the bass is just growling at your feet, I get chills every time I feel that. I'm not a professional audiophile so cannot really give a deep insight, but I tried classical music on this as well and I have to tell you, the high-pitched notes are just beautiful. I would suggest for you to try it before purchase but I can guarantee that if you buy this, you will not be disappointed.

I love your pc, but when you spend over $350 on a cpu and then another $500 on a gpu, I don't think you're entitled to call it a cheap build. Nice pc, Would've gone with a different case like the corsair icue 220T RGB.

Thank you, I saw some builds for 3+k USDs-s that's why I picked this name. I was able to get the 450D on a sale for only 85 USD and it fulfills all my needs (almost), I will buy some RGB fans in the near future just for a little colour. :-)

Yeah but most people have ~600$ pcs, this is a very high end computer. Its misleading to call it a "cheap" computer. Incredible build nonetheless, great job.

I do love the build, hope it goes well in the future. Hope you enjoy the pc. And that's a pretty good deal for that case.

Nice job, enjoy it. I would love to see an ultrawide on that desk, but thats me. I love them ultrawide monitors. For sure not a cheap build, I wish my build cost this much. Your GPU almost cost more than my entire system haha. Enjoy it man happy gaming.

ironicly I read about this monitor today. My pc won't be able to handle a boy like that. Plus its way out my price range. but sure is nice perhaps one day. When I can afford SLI 2080 ti's lmfao

haven't tried as the site said freesync and I'm still saving for some parts of the pc such as the GPU, i just wanted a good monitor and it was the best value for the money at the time.

Was it really necessary to spend $120 on a keyboard and a mouse?

  • 4 months ago

Well, it's fully mechanical and wireless + 1000 hz. It's not necessary but logitech gear never left me in the mud till now, also it was on sale for 23k HUF. Mouse was on full price yeah but same Logitech quality. Love them

I also use the same Logitech mouse and keyboard, great battery life on both! The only problem I had was that the laser signal on the mouse wheel was really messed up! I put in for a replacement but the software update through the Logitech gaming hub thing actually fixed the issue. It is worth the price.

There's a nice keyboard that looks and performs great. Go on Amazon.com and search: "Redragon Keyboard and mouse combo"

First of all, that Red Dragon is a cheap plastic Chinese membrane keyboard and I cannot believe you are pushing it in favor of an actual mechanical-switch gaming keyboard. Just because the Red Dragon has RGB lighting doesn't make it any more special or suited for gaming than a $5 keyboard from AliExpress.

Second, There is nothing at all wrong with his choice of peripherals from a cost standpoint. If this was a $500 budget build I would expect cheap peripherals. For a $2k+ (imma go ahead and say beginning high-end) gaming PC it would be an absolute shame to spend $36 on the two things that you will use to interact with that PC.

I game on a Ryzen 3700X with an RTX 2080. I have 5TB+ of solid-state storage, a massive air cooler and RGB throughout. It is powered by a 750w 80+ Platinum power supply, and is housed in a Corsair Air 540 chassis that was almost $200 new. The whole thing feeds my 27" 1440p 144hz curved gsync monitor. I also use my PC for VR with my Oculus Rift S. The cost of my PC if built today is just about $3500 with all peripherals, including the VR.

My Corsair K65 LUX RGB in $129 new, and my Corsair M65 PRO RGB costs $59.

And yet the total $190 cost of my keyboard and mouse is still less than 5% of my total build cost. That's the same percentage as this build in cost of those two components compared with total system cost.

Sorry for the long winded rant, but to honestly recommend that cheap plastic crap for anything less than an extreme budget build was so ludicrous that I felt the need to give a very detailed and (perhaps over-explained) clear response.

And no, I did not down-vote your comment. I prefer to respond directly.

I’m gonna have to agree with you, I’d easily spend $200 on just a mouse and keyboard combo if I knew it was worth the quality. A cheap plastic membrane combo isn’t gonna do you that good when it comes to pc gaming, and doesn’t suit a lot of people.

Hello. No you cannot keep it constantly connected but you won't need it to. It's 1000% reliable wireless. Love the keys. Monitor-wise I went with the 27 inch version since 32 would have been too big and I don't need it. Pixel density is higher on the 27 inch version
