Assembling a High-End AMD Ryzen Gaming PC (2020)
Here at The Tech Buyer’s Guru, it’s our goal to make building PCs easier for everyone, from first-time builders to veterans. And when a new platform comes out, everyone can feel like a beginner again, for better or for worse. That’s why we published our first Ryzen PC Assembly Guide back in 2017, shortly after Ryzen was launched. But AMD has come a long way since then, and given that the vast majority of the DIY PCs we recommend today are Ryzen-based, we thought it was time to give our Ryzen assembly guide the YouTube treatment. So it is with great pleasure that we present our step-by-step video guide to assembling a High-End AMD Ryzen Gaming PC, and this time around, we’ve gone nearly all-white with our components to give this system a truly custom feel! Very special thanks to Corsair and Arctic for providing samples of their latest white components, and also to MSI for providing a sample of its X570 Gaming Pro Carbon motherboard, a great showcase of the latest tech built into AMD’s Zen 2 platform!
