I'm just a small-time guy working a normal job as a physician assistant. My passion is building PCs and testing/reviewing PC hardware.

Newegg and Amazon Black Friday Sale PC Build Guide

Hello everyone. Welcome back to GR8 Tech 2Day. I am Will and today, I will be discussing a gaming PC build with components available at Newegg for Black Friday sale prices. There are also comparable options over at Amazon. Since I have been blogging tech reviews, I have tried to put together an article showcasing Black Friday deals every year. This year, there are some pretty exceptional deals compared to the previous 3 years or so. So, without further delay, let’s take a look at what we can get with the Black Friday Deals this holiday season, 2019.

Newegg

Amd Ryzen 7 2700 $159.99

AMD Ryzen 7 2700 CPU

This "Black Friday Deals" gaming PC packs quite the punch for performance and overall value. When looking into the deals, I came up with the best price to performance system I could find, trying to stay below $1,000. So, the first thing I had to decide on was the processor. In this build, I decided to go with AMD. Currently, the AM4 platform and Ryzen processors really cannot be beat in price to performance value. In this build, I went with last generation Ryzen, as all of the Ryzen 3rd generation processors were already sold out on Newegg. I wanted to get an 8 core processor to give me better performance for content creation in addition to gaming. The Ryzen 7 2700 processor that released last year is a great processor for both. The Ryzen 7 2700 is an 8 core, 16 thread processor on the AM4 platform. Out of the box, the processor is clocked at 3.2GHz with a boost clock up to 4.1GHz and sports a TDP of 65-watts. This is a great productivity processor and does well in gaming too, even though it is last generation’s processor. This version of the Ryzen 7 2700 comes with a Wraith Spire cooler so an aftermarket cooler is not needed. However, if you would like to overclock this processor, you might want to consider a CPU cooler such as the be quiet! Dark Rock Slim CPU cooler that I have chosen to use with this build. The Ryzen 7 2700 is currently $159.99 on Newegg and has comparable prices over at Amazon. If you add in the Dark Rock Slim cooler, you will add an additional $47.40 to the total of the build. The Dark Rock Slim will provide adequate enough cooling to overclock this CPU and maintain stable performance. If you want to save a few dollars on this build, you can forgo the Dark Rock Slim and use the included Wraith Spire cooler and have adequate cooling out of the box.

Gigabyte B450 Aorus M Motherboard $69.99

The motherboard we will use in the build is the Gigabyte B450 Aorus M AM4 MicroATX Motherboard which is $69.99 in the Newegg Black Friday deals. This is a decent platform to build this Ryzen 7 2700 system on. The board already supports 2nd generation Ryzen processors so no BIOS update will be required out of the box. There are 4 memory slots that supports up to 64GB of DDR4 RAM up to 3200MHz. There is 1x PCI Express 3.0 x16 slot, 1x PCI Express 2.0 x16 slot, and 1x PCI Express x1 slot. The board includes 6x SATA 6Gb/s ports and 1x M.2, Socket 3 PCIe 3.0 x4/x2. This board will be more than adequate to run this Ryzen 7 2700.

Team Group T-Force Delta RGB 16GB DDR4 3200MHz RAM $59.99

The RAM that I settled on with this system is Team T-Force Delta RGB 16GB (2x8GB) DDR4 3200MHz RAM which is $59.99 on the current sale. My opinion is RAM is RAM as long as it is compatible with the board and processor. In my experience, pretty much any RAM works with Ryzen even if it hasn’t been tested and proven to work. This RAM should run as specified and give you good performance. This RAM is RGB so, it will give you a little bling to your system.

Samsung 860 Qvo 2.5” Sata Iii 1tb Ssd $89.99

For storage, to save a little money but give a little speed, I went with the Samsung 860 QVO 2.5” SATA III 1TB SSD at $89.99. This should provide adequate, fast speeds to allow fast boot up and fast load times with games and other software on the system. You could add a 1TB 7200 RPM hard drive as well for around $40 more if you need more storage.

ASRock RX 5700 XT Challenger OC 8GB $369.99 ($349.99 after $20 MIR)

For the graphics card, I went with the ASRock RX 5700 XT Challenger OC card which comes in at $369.99 with a $20 rebate bringing the price to just $349.99. This is ADM’s top end offering at the current time with 8GB of GDDR6 Video memory and 2560 stream processors. The core clock out of the box is 1650MHz and a boost clock of 1905MHz. The cooler on this GPU should allow you to get a little more performance out of the card but from reviews, this card can get pretty loud so, be prepared for that if you plan on overclocking. This card is on par with the more expensive RTX 2070 Super and RTX 2080 offerings from nVidia. I actually purchased this card a couple weeks ago and will be testing it out soon and I cannot wait.

Cooler Master MasterBox MB511 $79.99 ($59.99 after $20 MIR)

To power the system, I will use the EVGA 650 GQ 80+ Gold 650-watt power supply. This power supply is from the very reputable EVGA and is very efficient. This 650-watt power supply will provide adequate power and will have an acceptable bit of overhead. This system will be built in the Cooler Master MasterBox MB511 mid-tower case. This is a nice case with plenty of airflow with its mesh front ventilation and also has a tempered glass side panel. This is a large case and should be easy to build in and is priced right at $79.99 with a $20 rebate bringing the cost to $59.99.

EVGA 650 GQ 80+ Gold 650-watt power supply $74.99 ($54.99 after MIR)

Conclusion

So, there you have it. This is my Newegg Black Friday PC build. For just under $1,000 this PC should give you great performance and should serve you well for at least 4 years.
