It's very similar to builds at https://www.reddit.com/r/PCMasterRace/wiki/builds so I'm not going to critique it but note that many first time Ryzen builders try to skip updating the BIOS before expending a lot of hours on the OS and drivers. This has lead to a lot of flames about new builds.
I've read up on a lot of stuff last couple of weeks, but I admit I'm definitly not a pro. Good job or brutally honest, give me your best shot! Can you help me out?
Just a few thoughts behind the setup:
-I based this around the ryzen CPU and the Samsung monitor (144 hz / 2k);
-I picked the 2600 with after market cooler (together 160 bucks) over the 2600x with stock cooler (190 bucks) because of the price difference. I think I can (learn to) overclock to 2600x speeds;
-Motherboard is nothing fancy, but still has overclocking features while being moderatly priced;
-Ram is very expensive for my taste, but everywhere I go I keep reading you NEED 3200 mhz / 14 cas timings -> what's your verdict?;
-SSD is not the best, but it's cheap, faster than a sata ssd and probably won't cause a bottleneck;
-The video card is powerful, quiet, cool and power efficient, but most of all cheap. I got a good deal;
-The tower is nothing special, just a mid range tower with mid range noise and thermals. I think it will do the job fine;
-The keyboard and mouse I chose since I do like the RGB (my MoBo and graphic card also happen have RGB, why not make it a party?), but they still seem a bit down to earth -> not to flashy.
I'm not a FPS player (love Anno though!), I love the Samsung monitor and I'm currently thinking of stepping in to machine learning. Hence the RTX 2060.
Love to hear what you think!
