BEST $1100 Gaming/Productivity PC Build | July 2017

okay so this video was supposed to be uploaded back in July because that is when the time lapse video came out for power-chord but because of the move everything got postponed it and it was just a complete mess but nonetheless we are back on track I apologize for the delay this is the $1100 productivity and gaming PC for the month of July are you guys on a budget or are you trying to save money whenever you can that's one of the main reasons I started deal source tech with over 10,000 visits each day deal source our tech helps you find deals and pretty much everything out there from PC parts to gaming gear not only for us but UK Canada and Germany as well believe it or not we have a team of four people that constantly refresh the website with new deals and they also cross-check them with other websites to make sure you are getting the best price out there so before you guys pay full price on your next purchase maybe consider checking deals or tech because maybe we found the same product a lot cheaper on a different website but anyways I'll drop a link to it down below feel free to check it out if you're interested if you're watching this video and you're on a budget and are looking to build the best gaming and productivity PC for around $1,000 then look no further because Power Core is exactly what you're looking for at the time of building this the entire PC cost me a little under $1100 but prices may vary because of cryptocurrency so please keep that in mind so for the processor I went with the rising seven 1708 core processor which is great for editing 3d modeling graphic design and perfect for streaming it's also the better choice among the rising seven processors because you can overclock it and get similar performance to these 1700 X and even 1800 X so just to recap you save $120 and you get similar performance to that of the 8200 X once you overclock you 1700's if you want more performance and don't care about spending money honestly I would make the jump to thread Ripper but that is a completely different subject and a different build the motherboard I picked up is none other than the a/b 350m pro 4 from asrock it's a solid board that costs only $75 and it supports overclocking has four dimm slots which is great in case means upgrade later down the line and it comes with two m dot two slots and a single USB type-c I decided to save some money and not pick up a CPU cooler since the stock cooler was good enough to overclock and I'll talk more about that later on since this is a Productivity build as well 16 gigs of ram can definitely aid the CPU in accessing files a lot faster so for my PC I actually ended up using four sticks instead because that was all that was available to me but I do recommend picking up two sticks of eight gigabytes each that way you still have to freedom slots for future upgrade ability for storage we have before terabyte hard drive from Seagate to store a bunch of games and editing files and for the OS we have a 256 gigabyte m2 from a data powering the entire build is AC Sonic 520 watt power supply and I went with this one because this was the only quality power supply that is also fully modular that cost less than 60 bucks the case I'm using is the bigger brother of the core v1 which I used a few times and previous builds this is the core V 21 and as a micro ATX tower with a clear side panel I mean it's not a bad looking case it's somewhat compact with great airflow and surprisingly it has a lot of room for storage we get three hard drive bays and three SSD tray is near the back there's even space to mount radiators near the top it actually supports one two eighty millimeter radiator and two 240 millimeter rads up top personally I'm not a fan of the clear side window because it's showing off the hard drive and the cables near the bottom and speaking of the cables there isn't much support for cable management other than bundling them up together and hiding it underneath the motherboard and finally the GPU I'm using is the sapphire rx 580 which I ended up overclocking slightly mainly because it comes factory overclocked so I was only able to squeeze out 300 megahertz on the core clock and memory speeds which gave me about 160 FPS and some speaking of overclocking I was able to push the 1700 to 3.8 gigahertz at one point 3 volts after increasing the fan speed on the CPU cooler I was actually able to hit 3.9 gigahertz but I had to increase the fan speed to max which was extremely loud and I do not recommend it looking at render times it's obvious that the power core is the fastest PC that I built under $1500 because it pretty much beat out all my previous budget builds rendering out a 3 minute 4k file in a little over 12 minutes the 1,700 hit temps of 76 degrees on full load while a GPU remained below 70 degrees and even though I increase the fan speed the PC still remains fairly quiet in terms of gaming performance the RX 580 is the perfect card for HD gaming because it will easily get you over 60 FPS and high or max settings across the board but if you guys want to play in quad HD you're going to have to upgrade the GPU to either you 1070 or the new rx Vega 56 if you guys want to see how those two cards compare against each other I'll drop a link to the benchmarks down below and that pretty much wraps up the video again I'm really sorry for the delay and all there's a lot of you guys have been asking me on Twitter when the benchmark video is coming up I hope you guys enjoyed it nonetheless I'll jump into all the parts used in the build down below in case you guys are interested in if you feel about some feel free to drop a like to show your support and if you guys didn't like the video clearly to dislike as well that is okay too I got a pretty cool thread Ripper build coming up very soon so make sure you guys are subscribed that way you don't miss out I love your toenails thank you so much for watching I will see you in the next one
