Ryzen 5 2600X mid end gaming computer - $900 (Albion)

123456789101112131415161718192021

condition: like new

Preamble:

I built this system to play games and used it for about a year. I played "The Witcher 3", "World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth", "Civilization 6", "Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain", "Diablo 3", "League of Legends", and others, all on maximum graphics at 60-140 FPS on my Full HD 1080p monitor. It still works like new and has no issues. I am selling it because I built a new system.

Basic System Information:

CPU: Ryzen 5 2600x 6-core
RAM: TridentZ RGB 16GB DDR4 stable overclock at 3,333Mhz
Storage: 500GB SSD
Video Card: Radeon RX 580 4GB
Power Supply: 650W 80+ gold certified.
OS: Windows 10 (Not activated)

Features:

-Ryzen 2nd gen CPUs have XFR which automatically overclocks as long as it is cool enough.
-BIOS has a very easy interface that anyone with basic understanding can navigate.
-The case has a very simple yet aesthetically pleasing design, and a side panel window that lets you see the inside of the computer at all times. Combine that with the RGB parts and it makes for a very pleasing and customizable view.
-ASUS Aura sync works with all 4 installed RGB fans, the motherboard RGB decal, and even the RGB RAM to make a very visually pleasing aesthetic. The video card does also have an RGB logo but since it does not sync with ASUS Aura, I simply keep it on a dim white light.
-The RAM is B-die which is known to be the best sticks you can get for a Ryzen CPU. They make it possible to overclock to much higher speeds while remaining stable. I managed to overclock the RAM to 3,333Mhz while stable, though they are rated to go even higher if you care to try your hand at manually overclocking.
-The RX 580 comes with Adaptive Sync which allows the video card and any free-sync/adaptive-sync monitor to work together to prevent screen tearing at much higher frames. This will allow you to turn off v-sync which would otherwise limit your maximum frames.
-SSD storage is considerably faster than Hard Disc Drives. Windows will boot in under 10 seconds with this SSD.

Note:
-I have not activated Windows. If you want, I could purchase a licence for an extra $100 and install it for you. I have just not felt the need to do so myself. It only prevents you from personalizing the background display and leaves a (sometimes annoying) water mark in the bottom right corner of the screen that I honestly don't even notice most of the time.
-I did not install a WiFi card in the computer but I do have a cheap USB WiFi adapter if you need it. Otherwise, a direct connection is preferable anyway.
-The monitor is not for sale.
-I am not willing to sell individual parts.
