Design Rationale

  • The Ryzen 3 1300X gave the customer a good amount of single-core performance for 1080p gaming, and multicore performance for heavily-threaded tasks.
  • We used the stock cooler to save money, the low-wattage CPU is fine with this cooler.
  • The customer wanted a stable motherboard with a good amount of desktop functionality.
  • The customer wanted at least 8GB of RAM.
  • The customer requested a 120GB SSD for OS and 1TB HDD for bulk storage.
  • We recommended the GTX 1050Ti for gaming performance.
  • The overall design of the build meant that a 500W power supply was recommended.
  • We used a mid-tower case to fit the build.
  • We used specific fans to ensure proper airflow and static pressure.

Customer Review

“I simply did a Google search online for someone close to me to construct a gaming computer that fit my needs.

I couldn’t have picked a better business and individual to help with this journey. He took my budget, found the best possible options, and constructed a beautiful machine! He dealt with all of my constant questions and truly showed what it means to be invested in a project, but more importantly a person.

I would recommend this service to anyone and everyone. This is the only place I will go for future services. Made a customer for life out of me!”
