Design Rationale

  • The Ryzen 5 1600 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 cooler is more powerful, but not needed.
  • The customer wanted a stable motherboard with a good amount of desktop functionality.
  • The customer wanted at least 16GB of RAM, 32GB was an easy upgrade.
  • The customer was fine with our default storage setup.
  • For ideal gaming performance, we recommended the GTX 1070.
  • We recommended a 650W power supply with a slightly lower efficiency rating to stay in budget.
  • We used a mid-tower case to fit the build.

Customer Review

“Great work. The computer was perfect, delivery time was respected. Chris was very open to discussion during the part selection process and afterward.

I definitely suggest Top Flight Computers for quality work and customer treatment.”
