Great to see it running smoothly! This PC should last for a few years :D You could even pop in a ryzen 5 or ryzen 7 if you desire later on :D What I would suggest is doing some cable managment. Routing the cable on the back of the case helps with airflow and better cooling. Wish you all the best on your future PC adventures :D

No i mean a completed build. when you click on completed builds at the top you have the option to make a build log yourself. Just select the part list you used. But if you do make one to at least include one picture. A completed build wont get approved if you dont have a pic of your build ;)

The case is actually Fine and we had enough space to work in it. The s340s even have Black/red themes so i think the s340 pr the s340 elite would be a good fit

Well depends which intel CPU. The i7 is waay better than the ryzen 3. But as you said much more expensive.

Its good for entry level yes. The video card is really nice for the price :)

Thats your choice tbh. Do you want more memory or better performance. I think the difference between 2400Mhz isnt as big as the difference between 2400 Mhz and 3000 Mhz. So I think you'll be fine with 2400 mhz. Look up "memory speed ryzen benchmarks" on youtube for comparison

You are very very welcome! Glad to hear it runs well :D And I like the name :D A build log here on PCPP would be a good idea :D So we know how the finished PC looks :D

Pretty sure the 1080 Ti is more than 10% faster than the 1080. I mean i get where you are coming from.. but 1st gen i7s are potatoes anyway so an upgrade is a needed. a coffeelake i5 isnt.. So that argument is kinda invalid. Since this rig is focused mainly on gaming its kinda like stabbing an eye out because you dont like your sunglasses.

ThoughtA's Build Guide: Magnificent Intel Gaming Guide

Lobsterareawesome 5 Builds 1 point 2 days ago

I strongly disagree. For gaming the GPU is the deciding factor. Sure you need to have a good CPU too so that no bottleneck occurs. But replacing the 1080 Ti with a 1070 Ti would be a major major step down. The 1080 Ti alone outperforms the Gtx 1080 by dozens of fps in almost all games. If you have a budget of 1800 $ and use the rig for gaming its just outright stupid to downgrade to a 1070 Ti or a 1080.

Overall gaming performance would be lower with a lesser video card. Depends on the game, not all games are as graphics heavy

Some proof would be nice here. Here is mine that a downgrade would result in a major loss in gaming performance: https://www.gamersnexus.net/hwreviews/2830-nvidia-gtx-1080-ti-fe-review-and-game-benchmarks/page-5

MSI Z370 Tomahawk might be a good alternative

ThoughtA's Build Guide: Entry Level AMD Gaming Build

Lobsterareawesome 5 Builds 1 point 2 days ago

I think so

ThoughtA's Build Guide: Entry Level AMD Gaming Build

Lobsterareawesome 5 Builds 1 point 2 days ago

No you would still need either one of those Wifi USB sticks or an internal wifi card

ThoughtA's Build Guide: Entry Level AMD Gaming Build

Lobsterareawesome 5 Builds 1 point 2 days ago

3000 Mhz would be better performance wise but you'll be totally fine with 2400 Mhz.

ThoughtA's Build Guide: Entry Level AMD Gaming Build

Lobsterareawesome 5 Builds 1 point 2 days ago

yeah and a 140 bucks more expensive

ThoughtA's Build Guide: Entry Level Intel Gaming Build

Looks very good to me! Personally I would get another case. But thats just out of preference ;)

manirelli's Build Guide: Modest Gaming Build

Lobsterareawesome 5 Builds 1 point 2 days ago

Well depends on your budget. If you have the money i would get the r5 1600. it gives you better performance in gaming even on stock clockspeed compared to an overclocked ryzen 3 1200.

Hi again! I made some research and I REALLY REALLY would not ger this cheap chinese gtx 1050 ti. It is very likely an old cheap Video card with a flashed bios. https://youtu.be/kq6BYRW2tBI This dude did a video about a chinese 750 ti he ordered. it also showed on the pc that it is a 750 ti. but after doing some benchmarks it was clear that it couldnt be a 750 Ti since its performance was way too weak. After removing the cooler and looking at the gpu he found out it actually way a 550ti with a flashed bios in order to scam you. With used computer parts there is ONE rule: If it is too good to be true, then it is very likely a scam. stay away from this cheap card on ebay

ThoughtA's Build Guide: Entry Level Intel Gaming Build

Lobsterareawesome 5 Builds 1 point 3 days ago

yes this will be enough i think. i had the g4560 and 1050 ti in my old system and both the cpu and gpu are excellent components for their price

ThoughtA's Build Guide: Entry Level Intel Gaming Build

Lobsterareawesome 5 Builds 1 point 3 days ago

check on the temperatures of the card. maybe you have a faulty card. but some cards turn of the fan if the gpu is cool enough

ThoughtA's Build Guide: Entry Level Intel Gaming Build

Lobsterareawesome 5 Builds 1 point 3 days ago

yes this would run those games very nicely. I dont really know about fortnite but r6 will run at 60 fps no problems

manirelli's Build Guide: Modest Gaming Build

Lobsterareawesome 5 Builds 1 point 3 days ago

I would be careful with rx 560s since amd secretly downgraded them. I had a 1050 Ti and i was Super happy with it.

manirelli's Build Guide: Modest Gaming Build

Lobsterareawesome 5 Builds 1 point 3 days ago

depends on the price

manirelli's Build Guide: Modest Gaming Build

Lobsterareawesome 5 Builds 1 point 3 days ago

Nope.. the ryzen 5 1600 is better than a r3 in gaming. ypu can upgrade the memory later on anyway and changing the cpu is annoying.

manirelli's Build Guide: Modest Gaming Build

Lobsterareawesome 5 Builds 2 points 3 days ago

yes. for ryzen it is rather important to get fast ram. vengeanxe lpx is a good option too. or ripjaws V

Added an SSD since it makes a big difference and changed the PSU. And try to get 4 pin fans instead of 3 pin ones. if you put 3 pin on a 4 pin header they will spin always at 100%. otherwise the build is great

Yes i know.. But 1440p 144Hz is much more expensive. So that way you have the best of both worlds. High refresh-rate and a stable framerate. My buddy has a 1080 and this very monitor. He is quite happy. i have a 1080 Ti and 1440p 144Hz though.

Lobsterareawesome 5 Builds 1 point 5 days ago

I know the 1600 can handle the gtx 1080 Ti. The msi armor 1080 Ti is a rubbish. it has a good PCB but the cooling is garbage. And no, 8GB is sadly not enough anymore. 8GB can bottleneck some games. For a budget build 8GB is fine but if you have a 1600 and a 1080 Ti its just stupid as hell. And its only 2400Mhz memory while ryzen benefits from faster memory.

how much cheaper is it? 3000 Mhz would be better for ryzen

Lobsterareawesome submitter 5 Builds 1 point 6 days ago

it keeps mz CPU really cool. It only goes up to around 71 C when i play games for like 4 hours. usually it sits around 65-67 C under load.for this CPU its perfect. Much better than the stock cooler

No i wouldnt buy this.. seems a bit fishy.. 50 bucks for a 1050 Ti is awfully cheap.
