GPU: NVIDIA EVGA GTX 1050 TI Superclocked
PSU: EVGA 450W
Standard keyboard and mouse, nothing special. They work!
Link to parts list: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/GF979W

Fallout 4 at 60 FPS with dips into mid 40's when in high-density areas like Swan's Pond

DOOM at 72 FPS
(Everything maxed)

(I named the system "Spiderman" because of the custom blue fan I got off of my stepdad's 2006 gaming rig, mixed with the red fan in the front)

That PSU looks like an EVGA 400 Watt. Sorry to say, but uh, IT'S A HORRIBLE PSU. So yeah, change that so it doesn't kill your system :)

Other than that, this build is very nice. I wish I had a GTX 1050.

Oh shit, I completely forgot. I traded the corsair one because my best friend wanted a modular PSU, so I took his EVGA one.
It's been working well for a year, I'll see about saving for a new one

And thanks man! Your build looks pretty awesome as well

Well, that's the problem with personal reviews. They only know that turns on! That PSU has atrocious ripple suppression, meaning that it can and will damage the parts in your PC. It also overheats completely over what the parts inside are rated for.

An Antec Basiq 350 watt would be a vast improvement and it wouldn't kill your wallet. it doesn't look pretty, though. ( I get anal about power supplies)

And like I said, the pic is a little out of date. Doesn't include the largest monitor or the new mouse.

I don't have a PC yet but I have created my build.
I would change three things.

The case fans. Sickle Flows push alot of air, but they're cheaply made. So they may not last a while

The PSU. Old B1 Series PSUs are ones to avoid. Anything from Seasonic or a Corsair CX450M would be good!

Ryzen processors really benefit from fast ram, so a fast RAM kit, like 3000Mhz, would have a performance boost.


Other than that, it's good list, mate. It's so satisfying to build your own PC :)
