Good luck with saving up man :P

I did the same thing as you, I was using integrated graphics and as soon as I had the funds I got my graphics card.

If you need any help with anything, feel free to just message me and I'll help you out.

That 1070 Ti is way too overkill for a 1080p 60Hz monitor, and it is not good if you are playing Overwatch competitively. At least get a 144Hz monitor or even better, 240Hz.

Getting those Cyberpunk 2077 vibes!

Thanks!

Couldn't agree more with what you said. After playing some shooters on my PC, I just couldn't play with a controller when I went back on my Xbox. And for that 2 000 dollar PC, well we can always dream as kids, right? Anyway, I hope you got your PC of your dreams. This little bad boy will suffice for me for quite a while.

Thanks!

You're right about getting an SSD boot disk; however, if I were to get an SSD, I'd like to invest in a larger drive, preferably 500 GB or more, considering I already have only a 1 TB HDD and the fact that it's running out of space.

Thanks for the information, I'll be sure to consider those models when shopping!

Why on earth would you pair a GT 1030 with an 8400??

Thanks! After the performance this build has been giving me, I've now officially turned into an AMD fanboy, and probably won't look at Intel or Nvidia again. (Not that they're bad, its just that AMD is cheaper)

Nah, you're fine. It was partly my fault for getting the facts wrong, and you just said what was true.

Best of luck on your build man, and if you have any problems with your build feel free to PM me :)

Yeah, Gigabyte does have its own overclocking software, and its called Gigabyte Xtreme. I personally haven't used it, I'm happy with Ryzen Master and MSI Afterburner.

Not really a book, but almost like a written documentary on how the build came together :)

Yeah, people are saying that it does have a little performance decrease, but it's really only a few FPS. Still, that fact bothers me, on how I could've gotten a few more frames out of the card...

Thanks! Honestly, becoming a freelance graphic designer is behind all of this. The picture of the final build in my head was kept me motivated throughout saving up.

When I felt that I was getting no clients, I just pictured my PC sitting there on my desk and that's really what made me push harder to achieve my goal.

I see. That really cleared up things for me, I had the misunderstanding of the percentage affecting how much power your computer will receive. Thanks for the clarification, and I have edited the OP to reflect that.

I know right! It's a really good combo. By the way, some people say that the pcie slot is only limited to x8 with the 2200g, just wanted to confirm if that's the case with you. If so, then the 570 is being capped by the pcie slot.

Thanks! Honestly, not that long. It only really took me about 45 minutes to write the entire thing, planning included.

You're absolutely right. Budget has been kind of tight lately, but I plan to get a 500 GB SSD as soon as I have the funds.

Yeah, I know. Obviously that PSU isn't good compared to those high end Gold or Titanium power supplies, but considering that I'm on a budget, it's more than I could ask for.

Hmm... I don't understand. Since it's 80% efficient, wouldn't that mean only 400 watts? (If you multiply 500 by 0.8)

I must have been misinformed then.

Umm.. an RTX 2070 is a bit overkill for "Office Use", don't you think mate?

Unless you are gonna be gaming on it, which is understandable.

I checked the manual of the motherboard, and my motherboard does have a jumper to reset the BIOS. However, I find that just removing the battery and putting it back in is much faster for me anyway.

I don't know what you mean by the proprietary overclocking utility from within Windows. Does Windows have its own built-in overclocking software? I only used Ryzen Master and MSI Afterburner to overclock my hardware but stopped because a) I didn't really need to, and b) I would get BSoDs and my temps would get really high.

Do you happen to know why my PC would react that way when I overclock from the BIOS? Like the no video output issue?

Thanks for tips!

Yeah but placing it down there is just limiting airflow.

You're making a mistake on where to place the GPU. I've read that the bottom PCIe slot runs at x4 (if I'm not mistaken) so you're seriously capping the performance of your GPU. You should put the card at the top PCIe slot, because you know for sure its PCIe x16, and not to mention you will be getting much better airflow as there's more clearance.

I know you don't game, but you should honestly give it a try. A 1070 is an absolute beast for gaming, and I think you'll appreciate the performance out of it.

Really? I've been reading reviews on that specific XFX card, and not only does it seem to die according to some people, but it also run extremely hot. Is that the case for you?

How's the RX 570 holding up? I'm thinking of buying it but I've seen many reviews of it dying after a few weeks of use.

I think you went a little overkill on the PSU and spent too much on it. But then again, its a good thing that you didn't cheap out on the PSU, which many people do. It'll serve you well when upgrading.

Nah. I'm a 15 year old with only $40 monthly allowance. So you can see why I have such a cheap rig.

Man, I wish I had your kind of money for my first build... My first build consisted of a Ryzen 3 2200G with 8 GB RAM and only an RX 570... I'm poor lol

But in all seriousness, great build. +1

Yeah... you kinda wasted your money getting a Z370 motherboard since you can't overclock like many others have said. You should've gotten a K processor or a non-Z370 board.

No offense or anything, but your desk is very small, and I don't find it to be very ergonomic. You don't really have a lot of room to move your mouse, as your case is taking up a lot of space. But that's just my two cents. Nice build. +1

Why? Ryzen processors offer great performance for an excellent price. I usually prefer them over Intel.

Fair enough. It's just that you have a great looking motherboard, and I thought that the GPU was hiding the MOBO from all its glory. :)

Really clean build. I would've went with a horizontal mounted GPU since it's watercooled, as there isn't much aesthetics when you have a vertical mounted gpu that's watercooled. But that's just my opinion. +1
