There comes a point in any PC’s life when you know that upgrades just won’t cut it anymore, and a complete overhaul is required. Whether it be from an aging motherboard that is no longer on the bleeding edge of CPU socket sizes, or a case that was released years before the concept of see-through side panels were a thing. And USB 3.0. Join us as we begin our journey to put together a kick-ass PC gaming rig in 2017.
It was only by chance that when we started looking at building the AusGamers 3000 that AMD once again became a force to be reckoned with in the CPU market. Thanks to its new multi-core line of Ryzen CPUs. Make no mistake about it, for the past few years when building a gaming PC most people would quickly end the CPU debate by choosing from either i5 or i7 from Intel’s line of CPUs. The clear market leader until a few months ago.

Special thanks to hardware suppliers and partners AMD, Nvidia, Cooler Master, Gigabyte, Crucial, Seagate, G.Skill, Logitech, and Razer
Interesting read thanks guys, keen for part 2 and performance of the AMD.
Great stuff. Yous nailed the tone of this feature. Interesting but also with a light comedic edge to it. Not too much talk of specs which usually make these type of build articles piss boring but just enough to keep it credible. Keen to see more of these.
Great stuff! Seeing the picture of the old PC made me think it would be cool to grab an old skool case like that and jam it full of the latest s***. Looking forward to part two.
that is a cool idea fpot, imagine rocking up to the next lan with it lol, look like one from the last lan :D
rgb is out of control :(
i like the idea of the old style case, purely so it doesnt have lights in/on it.
haha well you can disable rgb lighting... and it's not as bright as the images make it out to be... I keep the brightness on the lower end nad with the cases subtle red lighting everything has a purple glow...
I stuffed a full to the gills Core2Quad build into my old beige PentiumII desktop case back in 2009. I thought it was cool.
