THE BEST BUILD FOR EVERY BUDGET
We’ve replaced the Performance and Beast monitors with the new Asus and Alienware displays (reviews on page 77 and 78). We’ve also upgraded the Beast’s memory to a 3466MHz quad channel kit. We’ve chosen G.Skill Trident Z for the RGB – which looks absolutely fantastic on these RAM sticks. 3466MHz was chosen to provide maximum performance but not ridiculously fast or it could cause issues. The new Ryzen 7 2700X and 2600X CPUs are top performers but Intel is still just in front. That may change next issue when we look at the next Ryzen 3 budget CPUS, plus we’re also group testing new Intel Coffee Lake budget B360 motherboards.
