Joining the AMD Ryzen team!
Joining the AMD team after many, many years of being on the Intel team. This system is only going to be used for games as I have a 4th gen i5 Dell Optiplex 9020 for normal everyday stuff (uses less power!). Anyways, here is what I purchased/using for my build.
CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 3600
CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 RGB Black Edition
MOBO: Asus TUF B450M-Plus Gaming
RAM: 16GB G.Skill FlareX Series for AMD DDR4 3200 CL16 (8GBx2)
PSU: Corsair RM550x 80+ Gold full modular
GPU: Gigabyte GeForce RTX 2070 Windforce 2X 8GB (Rev 1.0)
CASE: Black inverted case that I have, doesn't have any front USB 3 though, but that is okay, 2x 120mm front intake fans, 1x 140mm side intake fan (blowing right onto video card), 1x 120mm rear exhaust fan
SSD/HDD: 250GB Kingston HyperX SSD, 1TB Western Digital Blue HDD
CD/DVD: LG Blu-Ray burner
MONITOR: Acer 1080p 60Hz 27"
I've included some of my benchmark numbers, the system is not overclocked. The case is only going to be temporary until I find myself a nice blue case with good airflow that I like, which is actually quite hard to find. This case I have had for a number of years and like the fact that you can actually see the fan on the video card instead of the back plate and I think case manufactures should make more cases like this. I have been trying to find a good one like this with cable management, but I can't find any or find any that don't cost an arm and a leg.
