    New build...what can I expect?

    Was playing on XBox one. It was fun. It wasn't amazing.

    So I just dropped some money on a new system and decided that it would be smart to ask after the fact how this is going to turn out. Nothing like being the opposite of proactive. I actually did do a lot of research and think that I did pretty well.

    Anyway here are the details:

    Ryzen 5 1600
    MSI Tomahawk 350
    16GB PC3200 DDR
    512GB Samsung 960 Evo nvme
    EVGA 1080Ti hybrid
    EVGA 750W PSU
    Bequiet base 600 case
    Oculus Rift touch

    I've got a Thrustmaster TX with the upgrade wheel, TP3-A pro pedals with the load cell, and the TH-8A shifter.

    I could have went much stupider and spent a lot more than I did, but I think that I found some parts that can perform well without losing my mind completely. My son just built a Ryzen 7 machine and is completely blown away by it so it got me thinking....and me thinking can be dangerous.

    So is there anything that I should have done differently?

    You shouldn't of got your little woman pregnant.

    Seriously, I think your off to a good start hardware wise. Good way to go with the PC3200 DDR, your Ryzen will like that.
    Am looking to upgrade to Ryzen also (1700), might be next spring/summer now. Enjoy your new system. It should blow away your XBox.
    AsRock X370 Taichi MB /AMD Ryzen 1700 @ 3.4Ghz / G.SKILL Flare X Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 3200 / Samsung NVMe SSD 960 Evo M.2
    Samsung 250GB 850 EVO (SSD) / SAPPHIRE NITRO+ Radeon RX480 8GB/OC 1342Mhz / SeaSonic Focus 750W Gold / AMD Adrenalin 18.2.1 drivers / Acer XZ271U bmijpphzx 27 Curved WQHD 2560 x 1440p 144Hz monitor.

    Very very nice system. You can always go higher, and a time passes (weeks) there will always be something "better" available.

    Usually people who go to the top of the GPU spectrum do the same with the CPU, but Indont think you would get more performances in game with a higher end CPU. Don't believe me, go check out the benchmarks in YouTube.

    VR can be tough on CPUs, but the Ryzen 5 is awesome and I'm sure will get better as developers make better use of more cores and threads.

    Enjoy! Very nice system!

    I think you definitely need to upgrade to a CSW v2.5

    Joking aside, I think you'll be fine.
    CPU i7 7700K | RAM Corsair 16GB 2400MHz | GPU Asus GTX1080 Ti OC 11GB | Mobo Asus Strix Z270H | Audio SB Zx @ 5.1/AKG K401 | OS Win 10 x64 | Screen LG 27EA63V-P 27" 1920x1080 | Controllers Fanatec CSW v2.5 + UH, CSP v3, CSS SQ, CSH | Misc TrackIR 4 Pro, Playseat Revolution, DS button box

    With the right to say what you think comes the obligation to think about what you say.
    Don't take life too seriously. No-one gets out alive anyway.
