I have taken a break away from my new extraordinary complex build and taken on the task of finding parts, assembling and installing my friends new gaming computer. It was his birthday last Sunday so this years big gift for himself was a new PC. Been using a gaming laptop the past few years with no clear upgrade path, it surely have hit a roadblock for one wanting to play new titles. We both live in Denmark and here hardware is pretty expensive, so there was a budget - get me the best possible rig, somewhat future proof, quiet, good looks, NO RGB, maintenance free and for less than £1.100 // $1.570 // £1.270 // 9.500 DKR. So we found: MSI B350M Gaming Pro motherboard AMD Ryzen 5 1500X CPU CoolerMaster MasterLiquidLite 240 AIO Corsair LPX 8GB (2x4GB) DDR4 3000MHz RAM Gigabyte AORUS GeForce® GTX 1060 6G 9Gbps Seagate Firecuda SSHD 1TB 1 random 120mm PWM fan (I had this already) 1 random 140mm fan (I had this already) 1 PWM splitter (I had this already) Fractal Design Integra M 550Watt PSU Fractal Design Meshify C Dark ed. w/Tempered glass A BitFenix PSU extension (I had this already) A Phanteks GPU power extension (I had this already) Samsung C24FG73 23,5" Curved HD monitor (gifted from his girlfriend) Logitech G413 White keyboard Plantronics 500HD surround headset I had an unused Windows 10 Pro from my private stockpile of PC gear that he got. All in all a pretty good deal on a budget, optimized primarily for gaming and not much else. Therefor no more than 8GB RAM, no SSD, no fancy anything really, just performance.
