Went with an all MSI build to include 2 24inch 144 hz screens.  Peripherals not included in budget.  GPU prices are ridiculous as we all know.  Was able to pick up the GPU for 320 which I know is terrible but, considering it was going for 500 Plus I think I did ok.  Let me know your thoughts, my idea was to build a solid system I can hang onto to for 10 years.

 

First question you all will have is, why g and not x?  I bought and built this rig 6 months ago and waited until gpu prices came down some.

Why are you getting the ryzen 7 5700g if you have a gpu and the gpu is not worth 400 USD and the storage makes no sense  and image.thumb.png.31cb2aec29b0e07fd239535b8e093908.png

do not spend $600 on a GTX 1650 and that storage makes no sense and that case is pretty rubbish for the money

I spent 320 understand its not worth it either way.  Can you elaborate on the storage? I have 500gb for operating system and 1tb for storage.

the 500gb is stupidly overpriced you realistically you should just spend $10 more to get another 1TB but still Samsung SSD's are very expensive

That case really does not look very good. Also, save money with Crucial SSDs. The performance is damn near identical.

I have had a personally bad experience with the MSI core  liquid line but you might have a better one when they work they perform pretty well

Yeah im seeing what you guys mean.  Will keep it in mind for future builds.  As far as the case is concerned, are you guys worried about thermals?  I am sure I could have done better price wise my intent was an all MSI build.  Not that MSI is superior in any fashion, as I would have done the same with Corsair or another setup.  Just kind of my OCD and I am a believer of buying things that were designed around each other.

Biggest issue I have had with it is I cannot find custom cables for it.

If you read the original post, the 1650 was purchased for $320, not $600. Still absurdly overpriced, but not much you can do about that these days.

That price is a mistake on PCPartpicker. If you click on them, you can see that the 500GB version costs around $80 USD while the 1TB version is around $145 USD. There is nothing wrong with having a 500GB drive for Windows, and a 1TB for storage, or vice versa.

 

Looks like a pretty good build to me. I'm not sure how great the airflow on that case is, but for the sake of matching parts and personal preference, nothing really wrong with that as long as your thermals are good. I can't really find anything to criticize.

Appreciate the feedback, Currently I have not been able to push the cpu over 50c.  I play warframe, asseto corse competizione, and Fallout so nothing over the top.  I imagine with the gpu install temps will go up some, but with 3 intake and 3 exhaust I am hoping I don't have issues.

Literally everything is where you went wrong xD

 

If you will be using a dedicated gpu from the get go then 5700g is not neccesary, go for a 5800x instead

 

That aio is abysmal at best, itll get creamed by even a cheap dual tower like the phantom or fuma 2 so swap to either of those coolers

 

Board is good but if you dont need all the features you can go for a b550 pro vdh wifi or ds3h wifi instead

 

The ram makes sense if you use an igpu but if you are gonna swap to a 5800x and use a gpu then go for the cheapest 3200mhz cl16 kit you can find, 3200mhz is adequate for ryzen and the lower timings will help cpu performance

 

970 is hot overpriced trash, its the same proce as a far superior gen4 ssd like the sabrent rocket 4.0, a drive which is 2x faster than the sad 970, gen4 is uneccesary for most ppl so buy a cheap gen3 like the kingston a2000, even has dram cache

 

That case airflow is abysmal at best so youll get garbage temps, go for a p400a or whatever cheap rgb mesh case you can find, though i suggest staying under the 100$ range for cases since there isnt much quality to be had above 100$ aka diminishing returns

 

Good psu, though pref go for the 850w version for futureproofing

Appreciate the feedback, one of my goals was to try and stay with one manufacturer.  For me it gives me peace of mind to know all the parts were designed around each other.  Really took the guess work out of what would fit and compatability. Looking back I basically built something that probably could have been bought pre-built.  As far as thermals, I will not be overclocking or pushing the system over the top.  Essentially I figured this setup would work for my intended use.  For example my whole house is wifi 6 with a 1gb connection.  So I picked up a wifi 6 board.  As for the memory to be honest I did zero research and used reviews to make my decision.  I also found it nice to not have sata cables running around the case.
