Since I'm going back to school, I was trying to get a computer that is able to handle any work load i'm giving it. I will most likely used this computer just to code, because the monitors are 60 hz. I wanted to save some money and try to get a bang for my buck, so i looked everywhere like amazon, newegg, and craiglists to purchase my parts. Here are some of the things that I bought.
Craiglist: Monitors: $100 dollars each= $200 EVGA 16 gb Ram= $100 Be Quiet 550 W PSU= $40 Samsung 960 EVO SSD= $100 Geforce GTX 1060= $265 Windows 10 Pro= $50 Total=$755
Newegg: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO CPU cooler= Seagate 2TB HDD= Rosewill ATX Computer Case= Artic Silver Thermal Compound= Total= $146.14
Amazon: AMD Ryzen 1700x=$300 Wires= Asus Motherboard= Total=$422.68
I'm pretty pleased with the price that I was able to save. I'm also pleased with my benchmarks. I was able to reach 1666 on Cinebench R15 and 2129 on Heaven 4.0
I might replace Thermal paste and CPU cooler. I really want to get 4.0 ghz for my CPU. Any tips would be appreciated.
Hope you guys enjoy this build. Don't mind the Macbook air :'( It's only to write papers. Yes, I'm a kpop fan _^
