The next generation of AMD GPUs has arrived! The Radeon RX 7000 is now available at Micro Center, and we wanted to celebrate with a no-holds barred, push-it-to-the-max, absolutely crazy gaming rig that'll take advantage of the brand-new AMD RDNA 3 architecture (not sure what that is? Check out our breakdown over here). So, we did! Check out our design below.
Processor: AMD Ryzen 9 7950X Raphael AM5 4.5GHz 16-Core Boxed Processor
When you're building with a top-of-the-line GPU, you absolutely should not skimp on the CPU, otherwise, you'll end up with some unfortunate bottlenecking. Thankfully, the AMD Ryzen 9 7950X is an absolute powerhouse, so you won't run into any issues there!
Motherboard: ASUS X670E ROG CROSSHAIR Hero AMD AM5 ATX Motherboard
ASUS's CROSSHAIR Hero is the motherboard. With advanced thermal management, PCIe 5.0, WiFi6E, and DDR5 support, this is a motherboard that doesn't just look good, it'll support you in whatever you put your computer through, be it work or play.
Graphics Card: PowerColor AMD Radeon RX 7900 XTX Triple Fan 24GB GDDR6 PCIe 4.0 Graphics Card
The centerpiece of the whole build, the brand-new AMD Radeon RX 79000 XTX is the new flagship of AMD's Radeon RX 7000 series, and for good reason. The Radeon RX 7900 XTX handles 4K gaming with ease and will keep you with an incredibly high frame rate for esports titles. And with FSR 3.0 coming next year, you'll be able to get even more power from it!
RAM: Corsair Vengeance RGB 64GB (2 x 32GB) DDR5-5200 PC5-41600 CL40 Dual Channel Desktop Memory Kit CMH64GX5M2B5200 - Black
DDR5 RAM is an absolute must-have for a build like this, and only partly because its required with the AM5 socket. DDR5 RAM is blazing fast and will keep your machine on the cutting edge for years to come. Plus, the Corsair Vengence RGB RAM just looks fantastic - a bit of RGB without going overboard!
Hard Drive: Inland Performance Plus 4TB 3D TLC NAND PCIe Gen 4 x4 NVMe M.2 Internal SSD
HDDs are still great if you need to store a lot of data. But if you're building a new PC for speed and power, you should really use an M.2 NVMe. The read/write speeds on an SSD like the Inland Performance Plus will make your old HDDs feel like they're still from the 90s. And with 4TB of storage, you'll have more to enough room for all your game, playable at lightning speed!
Power Supply: MAINGEAR IGNITION 1200 Watt 80 Plus Platinum ATX Fully Modular Power Supply
The IGNITION from MAINGEAR may be a bit overkill for this build, but it's definitely better to err on the side of caution when you're playing with this much power. This is a PSU that'll keep your computer up and running, no matter how much power you need. It's also fully modular, a must-have if you want your build to look as nice as possible.
Case: HYTE Y60 Modern Aesthetic Dual Chamber Panoramic Tempered Glass Mid-Tower ATX Computer Gaming Case - Red
What's the point of having a build this nice if you don't show it off? The HYTE Y60 is an incredibly unique case with a distinct angle on the front of the case. Almost the entire case is wrapped in see-through glass, so you can proudly display your brand-new build!

lol cant even spell benchmarks - guess your spell check reflects the state of microcenters customer service...
Its rather telling, Microcenter frustrated a lot of customers today, Take your money elsewhere folks, this isn't the Microcenter of olde!
the amd build is a banger and especially for the price
I agree, the HYTE Y60 is a really attractive case.
