Hi All,

I know I just posted but I think I didn't follow the directions and I am not sure the suggestions were exactly what I am looking for. Looking to run Planet Zoo, Planet Coaster and Cities Skylines with really good performance. This will be my first gaming desktop so I will need keyboard, monitor, etc..

  • Budget: $1,750 (including monitor, keyboard, mouse)
  • Location: USA
  • Use (gaming, rendering, etc): Gaming specifically Planet Zoo, Planet Coaster,
  • Peripherals required (monitor, keyboard/mouse, etc): Monitor, Keyboard, Mouse
  • Operating System required: Yes (Windows 10)

Here are the specs I am looking for:

OS: Windows 10 64bit Processor: Intel i7-4770k / AMD Ryzen 5 1600 Memory: 16 GB RAM Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 (8GB) or AMD Radeon RX 580 (8GB)

This will crush pretty much anything you throw at it, especially the games you have listed. The monitor I added has great price to features (1440p, 155hz) You can change up the peripherals, but I know from reviews that the keyboard is solid and from reviews/experience that the mouce is great. Enjoy!

I only see Batto 2's part list. Did you post yours as well? Sorry I am a little new to the forums.

You're fine lol. I haven't been here for very long myself. Click the word "This" in my above comment and it should take you right to my part list.

Figured it out! Do you play any of the games I listed?

Also do you have a MoBo with a wireless built on or should I just buy an adapter?

I don't play any of those games, sorry. As for internet, if you really can't use ethernet (better in every way) than I could find you a MoBo with wireless or an adapter, whichever you'd like.

Right now my office has the router for ethernet but that room will be converting to a baby's room in the next year and the new location won't have any ethernet so we can go with an adaptor that I can buy later.

The 5700XT msrp is $40 more? And I figure ray tracing eliminates the 4-5% performance upgrade. Personal preference though. I hadn't noticed that about the mouse. Thanks for letting me know.

I saw this is much cheaper than the other build. Any reason why? Will this still get the job done?

  • 3 months ago

Yes it is cheaper, because it has better value.

This build will likely perform better because of the higher-tier RX 5700 XT.

Also I recommend going full-on ssd. They are much faster, but that's personal taste.

What do you mean by better value?

I have never used a non intel CPU before. Anything I need to watch out for? Do I need any cooling?

  • 3 months ago
  • 1 point

As long as you chose an X570 chipset motherboard, nothing will change.

Also, the Ryzen 5 3600 comes with a fairly capable stock cooler that will actually be easier to install than most aftermarket coolers.

Gotcha! So I don't need to worry about liquid cooling or any of that?

Any thoughts on a cooler looking case?

Fractal Design Meshify C TG would be better IMO. The H500 is a bit of a "hot box" with fairly closed off front intake.
