PC build July 2018

I decided to support AMD and made the jump to the Ryzen platform. Started with a second hand Crosshair VI Hero and Ryzen 7 1700X, but Komplett Norway had an offer on the newly launched 2700X I couldn't resist...

In games, the difference with the Intel platform is negligible at 1440p, but the extra threads make Ryzen 7 excel at anything else. All in all, very happy with the change. I'm very excited to see what Intel has to offer with their coming 9000 series.
