Description

Wanted a new build for the Ryzen 5 3600. Had a ryzen 5 1600 since first release and that's been great so I went with Ryzen again. The rx570 is a place holder till I get some more money, hopefully for Christmas. Then I'll probably get the rx 5700xt.

Part Reviews

CPU

Fantastic CPU and at this price, makes it even better.

CPU Cooler

Very easy to install and the lighting looks great. It's the only lighting I have or wanted in my pc.

Motherboard

The price was right and I had no problem with a fresh build using Ryzen 5 3600.

Memory

No fancy lighting. Just some good ram at a great price. Works just fine.

Storage

Seems to work fine so far. Fast.

Storage

Additional storage. This one has been in three different builds.

Video Card

Great price with plenty of performance. A place holder for my build till I get some more cash.

Case

I've used this case for two builds and its great. High quality. Tinted glass for a classy look. Cable management is really good also.

Power Supply

Seems to work fine. It looks like high quality. Modular is awesome.

Operating System

Do you really have a choice?

im kind of confused honestly. The ryzen 5 1600 is still a perfectly capable chip and can keep up with very powerful videocards such as the rtx 2060 or the 2070. If you had a b350/x370 board at the time i would have attempted overclocking instead of dropping that kind of cash on a new cpu and motherboard, then instead of having a rx 570, you would have ended up with a higher tier of gpu. Don't get me wrong i like the build a lot, im just not sure its really a worthwhile upgrade over a ryzen 5 1600.

I had to sell and part out my whole pc earlier this year because life and we needed the money. I’m now getting around to having extra money again.

I can run everything great right now because I’m on a 1280x1024 monitor lol. It’s only 75hz. I play csgo, quake, pubg. Planned on hopefully getting enough Christmas money from the in-laws to get a decent monitor.

Could have gotten EVGA BQ 600 watt 80+ Bronze for 80 bucks. Much cheaper. Only 50 watts less which makes no difference in this low power build. Everything else seem good.

Wow yeah not a bad idea. I might do that. These prices for a rx570 are insane.

If you are the adventurous type and like to mod you can get a vega 56 for $240, it's the gigabyte that is known to have crashing problems due to a design flaw concerning overheat. https://pcpartpicker.com/product/XRqhP6/gigabyte-radeon-rx-vega-56-8gb-video-card-gv-rxvega56gaming-oc-8gd

"It's actually not AMD. This specific card has a design flaw that make the backplate chips way too hotter, so the card crashes. That's why you can find this GIGABYTE card now for cheap than a RX580." https://www.amazon.com/gp/customer-reviews/R3KUPPWPK42MUQ/ref=cm_cr_arp_d_rvw_ttl?ie=UTF8&ASIN=B079LT39Z7

Very nice build. RX 570 is a value champ, should serve you well until the funds come in for the 5700 xt then you'll be in good shape for a few years! +1

But when would that be. The 5700 series just came out. It will probably be another two years till the next tier for amd comes out.

I read that Sony may have unintentionally leaked the fact that the desktop Navi 20 (AMD's next-gen graphics card series) could have hardware-level ray-tracing (paragraph 2 at this link: https://www.techradar.com/news/did-sony-just-leak-that-amds-next-graphics-card-will-have-ray-tracing). I'm waiting for that too; for the build I'm planning for next summer (link: https://pcpartpicker.com/user/tankdestroyer2134/saved/7RpYHx), I'm planning on getting an Asus 2070 Super. Ideally, it'll have a Navi 20 (hopefully with hardware ray-tracing and 3 fans) and the 2070 Super I just mentioned.
