Design Rationale

  • The Ryzen 7 3800X gave the customer a good amount of single-core performance for gaming, and multicore performance for heavily-threaded tasks.
  • To ensure the CPU runs at full speed, air cooling with at least a single-tower cooler is recommended, dual-tower preferred. Liquid cooling is more powerful, but not necessary.
  • The customer wanted a stable motherboard with a good amount of desktop functionality.
  • The customer wanted at least 32GB of RAM, 64GB was an easy upgrade.
  • The customer was fine with our default storage setup.
  • For solid gaming and streaming performance on a slight budget, we recommended the RTX 2060 Super.
  • The overall design of the build meant that a 750W power supply was recommended.
  • We used our default mid-tower case to fit the build.
  • We used our default fans to ensure proper airflow and static pressure.

Customer Review

“I absolutely love my custom 1080p/144hz gaming computer build by Top Flight Computers! Chris was wonderful, and he did a great job at not only building me the rig I need to do my job, but he also figured out creative ways to save money on my build as well.

I have been using Miko rigorously the past month, coaching an esports camp for Overwatch players, hosting and broadcasting a charity Valorant tournament, streaming high level fps gameplay, and creating Youtube videos.

I think Miko was a wise investment in growing my online content creation, and I look forward to being able to use this rig for the next several years :)”
