If people want, I'll show some more detailed pictures, atm I don't really have any at hand.

(BTW, you can also nickname it "Stanhope Hates Me")

Suppose I'll add to this with my PC RIG that I've had since like 2010/11 and has run like an absolute dream ever since.


She's an ol' girl but has a heart of goddamn titanium gold.


Case: Dell XPS case, not sure on the actual name.

CPU: Intel Core I7-3770 @ 3.40ghz

RAM: 12GB Ram, nothing fancy, factory standard

GPU: Nvidia GTX 1060ti

SSD 1 (OS): Kingston SSD A400 Solid State Drive (2.5 Inch SATA 3), 240 GB

SSD 2 (V for Vidya): Samsung 860 EVO 1 TB SATA 2.5" Internal SSD


Not sure on the other internals, it's literally all factory standard stuff and has never gone wrong. Only things that have ever broke are 2 cheap HDD's that I used to use before I discovered the beauty of SSD's, since switching to them, I've not had any issues. She just gets dusty and requires a bit of cleaning every odd couple of months so I don't start smelling burning.


Old Monitor: LG TV, somewhere in the 30-40" area running at a measly 1366x768 resolution. Had that up until today where I got my upgrade. TV ran fine other than a quite weak resolution, still enough to kick ass on most the games I played. Now using the old TV as a side dish to my PS4.

New Monitor: Gigabyte AORUS FI27Q 27 Inch IPS QHD (2560 x 1440) 165 Hz FreeSync/G-Sync Compatible Gaming Monitor

Keyboard: Corsair K70 RGB MK.2 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard (Cherry MX Silent Switches: Linear and Quiet, Per Key Multi-Colour RGB Backlighting, Aluminium Chassis

Mouse: Rii RM200 Wireless mouse with RGB

Headset: HyperX Cloud II Gaming Headset PC/PS4/Mac/Mobile, Gunmetal Grey

Desk Pad: TITANWOLF XXL RGB Gaming Mouse Pad - 800x300 mm - Mouse Mat - XXXL Extended Large LED Mousepad - 11 Multi colors and effect modes - Non-Slip Base - Wolf Design


That's about it really. Up until recently; my monitor, my keyboard and my mouse were all quite cheap stuff, but they worked absolutely fine and were enough to meet my needs.

The computer runs well, running most games I play on Ultra settings at at least 60fps. Normally on ArmA III, I can run it on ultra settings at about 100fps, only time I experience lag is when on certain multiplayer servers, but that is due to server FPS rather than my own, ArmA can be a pain like that.


I'll leave some pictures, my bedroom got renovated just last week so this is all just a work in progress, I will eventually be running 2x monitors and will probably play around with the set up, I'll also have some picture frames set up so teh walls aren't so dull. Overall though, apart from getting a new gaming PC (which I'm on the fence about at the minute considering how well mine runs), my set up is about 70% complete. Excuse the picture quality, I don't understand the pro settings on my Huawei despite having a qualification in Professional Photography (I think I just cheesed the qualification in return for college parties)

Same. I never remember to do that thing that "I'll just do that later" so place is a tip. It's a pain in the arse, if I get distracted from doing something it's not getting done.


Rig (prebuilt, as it was the same price as components... black friday! Oh and 0% finance because low pay!)

Ryzen 3800X

Asus B450-F (would have preferred X570)

16 GB Corsair Vengreance 3200Mhz RAM... RGB of course

1TB Corsair nVME SSD

1TB Corsair MX500 SSD from previous PC

2TB Seagate HDD (for videos and "storing crap from old PC" until I tidy it, which I will never do tbh)

Corsair iCue 220T Black case, with the air front not the glass front

Asus RTX2070 Super Dual Evo

B450 is perfectly fine for most things, only time I ever recommend 570 is either for the pci gen 4 support when pairing with a gpu or SSD that is capable of it or  for higher memory capacity/speed uses. Otherwise there is little to gain from having the x570 boards

I would have liked an upgrade path that didn't involve a new motherboard - between gen4 PCIe and the VRM quality of this board, vs. some of the X570 options... (B550 of course wasn't available then)

The next gen chips will support b450 with a bios update :D

VRMS are usually better on the x570 series boards but the board you have (same as the board in my server) Is pretty good on that front too, I have enjoyed using it and it will cope with the entire stack perfectly well.
