Description

I use this build for gaming mainly, but I also do regular stuff. Also tried streaming, but boy lemme tell you. I could tell my cpu and gpu were struggling. But overall, it's a pretty solid build. I've had it for a few months and it can run Fortnite, GTA V, Rainbow Six Siege, and etc at 60fps with only little dips. I plan on fixing it up and making it pretty again because in a few months I'll be giving it to my little brother. If you guys wanna see what I plan on building in a few months though, the link is below. Let me know your thoughts!

EDIT: I worked on it today and took everything out, then put it back in while managing all of my cables. It still looks messy because I'm terrible at organizing, along with me needing an extension for my CPU PWR connector. The darn thing just goes across the middle of my case. But that's all!

Streaming is difficult on most budget rigs. Recording is ez pz on the 1050 Ti though, so don't be afraid to do that :D +1

Ahhh, on my current build I have a GeForce GTX 1050 Ti with 4GB. I had slight difficulty mainly because I'm still learning my way around streaming and all of the settings (bitrate confuses me and I'm in a AP class for computers haha). But thanks for your insight. If you have any other ideas or opinions, feel free to let me know!

Also just realized you were talking about the GPU I have lol. I thought you were talking about my future build!

I have an RX 480, so your next build will 100% both stream and game at 60 FPS+ on almost every game with medium-high settings. Enjoy bb

I don't do any streaming, nor watch people do streams (I don't have much free time), but from what I heard is that it really takes alot. Some people either go ball-to-the-wall with their PC (8+ cores, dual high-end GPU) to stream and play on the same PC. Or they build two PCs, one to play the game, the other to stream.

This might not be able to stream, but I think this is a great first-time build!

This will actually be my second build! If you wanna see my first one (which is low-budget) I can send you a link. I've seen plenty of streamer setups and a lot of them are sometimes over-kill. But in the end it does come down to CPU and GPU power. Along with internet speed.

In my opinion, I feel like this could be a low-end stream build. I changed the CPU to a Ryzen 5 2600x with 6 cores, and I could also overclock it. I can't afford two high end GPUs, but it would be nice! But thanks for your insight!

There was at first because I put the bracket on wrong, but after i put it in the correct position, it was easy screwing.

you didnt have any compatiblility issues with the ram and motherboard. the model code for ripjaws v series 2x4gbs do not show on their compatable list. https://www.msi.com/Motherboard/support/B350-TOMAHAWK#support-mem-12
