For years and years, I've waited for AMD to return to the enthusiast CPU realm, and now that they have in the form of their new Ryzen 7 range of processors, I'm now building my new workstation and gaming PC powered by the AMD Ryzen 7 1800X processor.
Up until now I had been using an Intel Core i7-6700K (at stock) and switched it out to the Ryzen 7 1800X, a new motherboard, RAM, air cooler, and OCZ's wickedly fast M.2 NVMe-based SSD.
This new PC will be my workstation that I'm creating content at - be it writing content, reading up (which I do a lot of every day), Photoshop work, emails, and everything in between. I'll also be gaming on it, with games like Mass Effect Andromeda, Overwatch, H1Z1: King of the Kill, and a bunch of other games - and of course, benchmarks.
I reached out to our friends at AMD who provided the Ryzen 7 1800X processor, ASUS Crosshair XI Hero motherboard, 16GB kit of Corsair DDR4-3000MHz RAM, and Noctua cooler. Corsair provided us with the AX1500i PSU a while back, and OCZ stepped up to the plate in a massive way with some major help in super-fast RD400 series M.2 NVMe-based SSDs that can push 2.6GB/sec reads.
NVIDIA recently sent me the new GeForce GTX 1080 Ti, so of course, that was the GPU of choice for my new workstation/gaming PC build.
