An older VisionTek Radeon card I had laying around during testing since the 1800x doesn't have an iGPU.
How it looks from the side, the square you see on the bottom left is a mirror I purchased from the dollar store, I purchased attached it to 4 wooden pieces, slapped the Ryzen sticker on it and inserted a red LED strip around the center of it to give it that effect.
To do list:
- Get a Radeon card, my choices would be; the cheaper option would be RX 480/580, more expensive option would be RX 5700 XT but my dream GPU is the Radeon 7! (or Big Navi obs, but it's not released yet.)
- Get a Ryzen 9 processor, I have the latest AMD chipset and BIOS (v7704) from ASUS so I can upgrade to a newer CPU, Zen2/Ryzen 3rd gen.
- Get a storage drive with more space, the Intel 480GB SSD is fine, has good rd/wr speeds but 480GB just doesn't cut it for AAA games in 2020... I always have to uninstall games to reinstall new ones, games these days are 80GB+ to 100GB+ and I can't seem to have more than 4-5 games installed at once.
- Get 2x120mm fans for under the case, install them as intakes for more case airflow.
