At 1080@60fps so far Prey runs very smooth at max settings. Also Batman Arkham Knight at custom high settings and Mirrors Edge Catalyst at high settings. Mass Effect Andromeda though will dip into the 50s and 40s occasionally at high settings.

I wasn't really on a budget here and I like to get the best value for my money. I considered getting an i7-7700 at first (non-K because my mobo was a B150), but at 310 € in my country I felt the Ryzen 5 1600 was the better deal at 220 €. I know the i7 performs slightly better in gaming but I'm hoping the 6 cores of the Ryzen will help it in future games. Also I really wanted to do a brand new build, so new mobo was part of the plan =)

Yeah...I broke a sweat, trying to keep all the cables inside while putting the shroud in. Also there is not a lot of room for the cables behind the PSU, so I had to offset the drive cage farther to the front.

Thanks. I agree, it does in most new games. But there are some (like ME Andromeda) where it has trouble keeping that 60 fps target at high settings. I am planning on upgrading as soon as AMD Vega becomes available.
