New set up for a trucker

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I am a trucker in the US and was hoping I can get some recommendations on what I can do to prevent damage from the vibration of the road on a gpu 

I have in mind a

ryzen 7 1700

With a asus motherboard 

A rx580 OC

8 Gbs of ram

And 1tb of storage with a 120 ssd

Any suggestions what i can do on the vibration aspect or ideas for a gaming rig for a trucker in general

I'd package it properly when you're not using it. Do you still have the box and styrofoam packaging from your case? I'd just put it in there when you're not using it


AMD Ryzen 3 3200G / Sapphire R9 290X / 16gb (2x8) Kingston ValueRam @ 2666Mhz / Gigabyte A320M-S2H / Kingston A400 120GB M.2 SSD / WD Blue 2.5" 1TB HDD / Cooler Master MWE450 / Aerocool CS-100 / Dell P2210 1680x1050 @ 70Hz (OC)

When moving a PC with a dGPU i'd always suggest to remove the GPU from the case. Anything else should hold up alright.

what would your budget be?

 

as for while taking it trucking with you, remove the dedicated gpu while youre travelling, or else youre risking the pcie (shard? blade? pins? idk) breaking off your graphics card slot.

 

maybe even get a pelican case with some nice cushioning

Dont get a 1700 in 2020, there are far better options for gaming than that

Also transporting the pc on its side and maybe using a watercooler if you dont like the stock cooler will help with the mobo durability as the gpu doesnt jank on the mobo in a as bad direction

Edit: also get a 1tb ssd, they are not that expensive and a hdd is pretty iffy if constantly shaken around
