Media Center>Gaming Computer Build
Rukdafaidas 09:35 AM 01-28-2021
As mentioned in the video card thread, my son is getting ready to build his first computer. He has an online buddy that he games with that builds his own PC's and he has given him a list of components that he recommended he use. He's spending his own money on this and I wanted to make sure he gets good components and that they're compatible.

Component List:
Ryzen 5 5600
MSI Geforce 3060 TI TRIO 8GB
MSI MPG X570 Gaming Plus ATX AM4 motherboard
G SKill Ripjaws V 16 GB (2x8GB) DDR 3600 CL18 memory
Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5" 7200 RPM Internal HD
Samsung 970 EVO 500 GB M.2-2280 EVME SSD
Fractal Design Ion+ 560W 80+ ATX Power Supply

Does this look like a good setup? Any concerns or ideas? He mostly plays CS:GO and I realize this gaming card is probably overkill for that game, but he also plays wants to play games that require a better GPU. He basically wants to build a system that will play any game that's currently out there. He also wants something that can be easily upgraded in the future, when needed.

We haven't begun to look at cases or monitors. I think the case will depend on which graphics card we end up finding. I know the MSI Trio that was suggested is huge, but we can get a smaller case if we get a 2 fan version. Any suggestions on monitors as far as hertz and resolution? He doesn't need anything very big, he's going to be sitting right in front of it.

I have the feeling that it's one of those ads where you show up to buy it and they say they just sold out however we have xyz in stock.

Thanks! I thought the power supply looked a little small, from what I've heard.

Now he needs a better monitor.

600W will be enough. 80 plus bronze is also very good. :-)

Nice build, I kind of figured NZXT was your best bet.

Well, it took dang near a month, but the new PC was delivered yesterday. He tracked it all of the way from California and I don't think he has ever been so excited.
We plugged everything in, turned it on and it booted up, then some green lines showed up on the Aorus bootup screen, the screen then went blank, then nothing.
We tried powering it off, then booting back up and it went to a Windows recovery screen. Then it did the green lines thing, then blank again. This happened several times, then we called Tech Support.
They sent a video and asked that I reseat the graphics card, which I did. Then we rebooted and it did the same thing.
Called again and they asked that I download a fresh copy of Windows and reboot with a memory stick, which I did. It installed the copy and rebooted, then it went to the green lines screen, then nothing.
Everything I'm reading is saying we got a bad graphics card. Does this sound right?
He is beyond disappointed. He just started his spring break and was looking forward to playing his new PC all week, but it sounds like we're probably going to have to send it back and wait another month. Their tech support is closed until Monday, so I'm not sure what's next. Bummer.

Have you tried booting it up with the GPU not installed/disabled?

No, I'm definitely not a tech guy. I didn't even know you could do that.

You can, but I just noticed you have a Ryzen 5 5600x CPU. That CPU doesn't have integrated graphics, so scratch that.

If you know that monitor and cables are good then ya your GPU is fucked.

I'm just curious, how did they ship it?

Was the GPU installed? Did they use any of the hardening packing shit stuffed inside the case?

The GPU was already installed. It did have the hardening pillow type packaging inside the case. Apparently they have enough issues with the GPU's getting unseated that they created a video to show how to remove and replace it.

The monitor is old, he bought a new one to go with the new computer, but it hasn't arrived yet. He has been using this monitor with his current computer, so it definitely works.
