This is a perfected ten year build. I'm building ten years into the future with this hardware. Watch this guys. I'm a computer engineer and doctor of computers. This is a top mid-range computer build. Pro builder. . . All you need is mid-range!!! This thing will do 4k gaming easily too with HD audio. This is a high performance top mid-range build! It's a three part build for people with everything else. If you already have a case with fans in it, and a 600w power supply, you can build this thing for about $520.00 dollars + 40.00 dollars in tax, which bring you to about $560.00 dollars. You also will need a decent video card, and I know, cards right now at expensive, but this is a build for people who already have everything and are fully invested into hardware. This is a $1,300.00 dollar build, or around that that will last for the next ten years or longer! You also need to be able to set it all up yourself and have a valid copy of Windows, but cheers! I just built this thing and it's a powerhouse. It scored on benchmark: A Nucular submarine on desktop with a 90 percent score, yacht on gaming with a 50 percent score, and yacht on workstation with a 48 percent score. It's a good build. Just thought I'd throw it out there for people looking to build an AM4. Maybe you're coming off an Intel machine, maybe you're looking to upgrade. I don't know, but this is what I built for my ten year rig.
1.)AMD Ryzen 5 3600X 6-Core, 12-Thread Unlocked Desktop Processor with Wraith Spire Cooler. $250.00 dollars on Amazon.
2.)ASUS ROG Strix B550-F Gaming AMD AM4 Zen 3 Ryzen 5000 & 3rd Gen Ryzen ATX Gaming Motherboard (PCIe 4.0, 2.5Gb LAN, BIOS Flashback, HDMI 2.1, Addressable Gen 2 RGB Header and Aura Sync) $176.00 dollars.
3.)Crucial Ballistix 3600 MHz DDR4 DRAM Desktop Gaming Memory Kit 16GB (8GBx2) CL16 BL2K8G36C16U4B (Black) $93.99
If you're using two video cards, you'll want to shoot for a 1000w power supply with this build. And get yourself some good hard drives to run this thing and you're off to the races! The cards have to be exactly the same too, same version numbers or you'll blow the card up! Cross fire is limited, but get same version number and attach a cross fire cable to both the cards and you're good to go, at least I think that's how cross fire works. I only use one card, but that's how it worked ten years ago!
