Build Guide

Modest AMD Gaming Build

by manirelli

Description

CPU

Our Modest AMD Gaming Build is built around the Ryzen 5 2600. Using the stock cooler you should be able to achieve moderate overclocks on this unlocked processor.

Motherboard

We've paired the R5 2600 with a parametric list of mATX B450 motherboards that supports up to 64GB of DDR4 memory, multiple SATA6 devices, and front panel USB3.0.

Memory

For this build we opted to go with 16GB of DDR4 memory. The parametric filter finds the best price on 16GB kits of memory that are within AMD’s recommended specifications. We've limited it to a range from DDR4-2666 to DDR4-3200 as Ryzen CPUs scale well with higher frequency memory. At the current time, using memory rated over 3200mhz is not advised without doing extra research as DIMM support can be hit or miss. AMD is working on releasing additional BIOS updates to add better compatibility for higher frequency memory.

Storage

We're also using a parametric filter that will actively select the best-priced SSD of at least 240GB capacity. Additionally, we're including a 2TB mechanical hard drive in a parametric filter for things like storing media and extra games. Everyone's storage needs differ, so feel free to change the capacity to your usage.

GPU

At this price point we suggest using the Nvidia GTX 1060 6GB edition. We specifically filter for the 6GB model as the 3GB not only has lower VRAM but also a lower core count leading to lower fps while gaming. The performance across most games will be similar to the AMD RX 570. We've created a parametric filter to show you the lowest priced, full sized GTX 1060 6GB which will be powerful enough for most AAA games at 1080p.

Case

All of the components are housed in the MasterBox Lite 3.1 TG MicroATX mini tower. This case is an affordable option that has a large side panel window, front panel USB3.0, room for full size graphics cards, and cutouts in the motherboard tray for easy cable routing.

PSU

For our power supply, we're using a parametric selection of well-reviewed fully and semi-modular units, all of which will provide more than enough power for this system.

Aaogmantis 4 points 2 months ago

I’m looking to play games like Minecraft, Skyrim and fallout 4 with a lot of mods. No necessarily graphics mods but mods in general. Should this play it? I don’t want to spend the money and have to buy a higher end one

rogdog56 4 points 2 months ago

This system will be more than enough for those games. It's pretty well known that minecraft and skyrim are very easy to run at ultra; but if you want some fallout 4 gameplay on a similar machine to this one look at this video. Also if you're getting this system don't get a biostar mobo.

Takka 3 points 2 months ago

for mods i find that CPU is more important that GPU in this case, minecraft works better with more ram. But I think for the price this is pretty good price to performance, I would change de motherboard but that's it

PCGURU27 3 points 11 days ago

Yes you should , firstly you can play skyrim on anything, and fallout 4 can be run on a 1060 max settings ~30 fps (I think.) and minecraft is super easy to run on a ryzen.

NerdyTurd 2 points 2 months ago

This should be fine for what your games :)

puppy_punter 1 Build 2 points 15 days ago

this will crush those games at 1080p, and will even do them at 1440p, but nothing other than minecraft/fortinite at 4k

YaBoiLilZachy 1 point 10 days ago

1440p but at low-medium settings, rx 580 is better for 1440p and a bit cheaper

Sinistas 1 point 1 month ago

This build will absolutely handle modded Skyrim/FO4. I have a very similar one and both run fantastically.

TheQuackSavior 3 points 2 months ago

16GB of RAM? I hope it can run Cities: Skylines with a lot of mods installed.

rogdog56 4 points 2 months ago

No problem with cities, even with 8gb ram (at least on my end) but if I were you I'd go with 3000 mhz ram or at least make sure you can OC the ram you get. More with 1st gen than 2nd gen ryzen, but ryzen still loves memory speed. If you look at benchmarks you will notice most things below 3000 have a 3-4 fps decrease the further down you go; but going above 3000 has diminishing returns; maybe an extra frame.

travismoritz 3 points 2 months ago

Should be able to just fine

ryderfletcher 3 points 24 days ago

im a rookie, but I dont see any fans or cooling devices? will that be a issue?

klusterfuffle 1 point 15 days ago

The CPU, GPU and case will come with stock fans. People like to upgrade them with a cooling system. The description on this build argues that this is light enough that the stock cooling will be fine, even with modest overclocking.

Galepsi 2 points 2 months ago

I'm sure you've seen and answered dozens of the same question, but: With a budget of $41.00 USD over the total current price, do you have any specific recommendations? This will be my first personal build, and I'd like to "dip my toes" into PC building before I go all out with research etc. Any help is much appreciated!

Sebebi 6 points 2 months ago

Something like a micro atx MSI or Gigabyte mobo for an extra 20-30 dollars would be good instead of the sketchy biostar one.

ragontx 1 point 1 month ago

I'm with you instead of 16 of ram get 8 and upgrade mobo.

dallior 3 points 1 month ago

I wouldn't say downgrade on RAM; Ryzen eats the stuff for breakfast. The $41 OP has to spare will be enough to upgrade.

rogdog56 4 points 2 months ago

+1 for Sebebi, don't get a biostar. Also if you don't have size constraints consider what Takka said; get an ATX. A compact ATX case like the NZXT h500 is a little bigger but an ATX system has more functionality

Takka 3 points 2 months ago

if i were you i'd just get a ATX board

gigglepig_buster 3 points 2 months ago

remember to get a wireless card (if you need one). that is around the price

nooodles123 2 points 1 month ago

Galepsi! For 40$ more you could buy a Ryzen 7 1700 for only 43 dollars more!!!!!

YaBoiLilZachy 1 point 10 days ago

Better MOBO

Tritches 2 points 2 months ago

I am thinking about building a PC for the first time. Would you guys recommend this build for someone who knows next to nothing about building a PC? Also could you recommend a specific mother board upgrade for this? I can spend about 30$ more for a motherboard upgrade but I know nothing about compatibility.

gigglepig_buster 2 points 2 months ago

Pcpartpicker and r/buildapc on reddit have ways to check for compatabilty Im in the same situation as you!

CharGibbs 1 point 2 months ago

For a first time build, this is fine. I would personaly get an ATX mobo but that is entirely up to you.

henrypfournier 1 point 1 month ago

Where can i find an ATX mobo? Can't find it

CharGibbs 1 point 1 month ago

I'm not sure how to explain this sorry, but they are the full sized mobos (I'm pretty sure). A good one that I have previously bought is the ASRock - AB350 Pro4 board, but only get this if you are getting a ryzen CPU, as it will not work with an Intel chip. Getting a smaller mobo that isn't ATX is perfectly fine, it's just what you prefer.

Dannyaguado 1 point 1 month ago

this sight has a compatibilty filter so just look at the prices

aguywhoislookingforwardforapc 2 points 1 month ago

Does it run Fortnite with some recpectful FPS(70+) and epic settings?

HasNeyn 3 points 29 days ago

This build should demolish the game. On Epic, you'll be expecting around 100 fps.

epicfortnitegamer69 0 points 17 days ago

HasNeyn, can you record you playing the game with max settings and 100 fps please?

brenboaz 1 point 1 month ago

thats what i wanna know too

Sanjex 2 points 1 month ago

This CPU is amazing for the price of it, I'm really happy I built a PC with it. Only downside is I spent too much money on a monitor, and in the end did not buy a graphics card so I am stuck with a 750 XD

nturner28 1 point 2 months ago

How well would a 1070 quicksilver work with this? Any bottle-necking?

travismoritz 2 points 2 months ago

no with a ryzen 5 2600 a 1070 should pair perfectly well with it, there shouldn't be any bottleneck as this is a mid-high range CPU

CharGibbs 1 point 2 months ago

No, there will not be any bottlenecks. Don't worry about that

moupsoup 1 point 2 months ago

Would this run TF2 1080p max settings at 60fps?

PrivatePengu 4 points 2 months ago

Yes, definitely. TF2 is one of the least demanding games on the market, it'll run without a problem.

Okno13 1 point 2 months ago

my a6 ran tf2 at 60fps lol

CharGibbs 1 point 2 months ago

Easily

BurnTheConsoleUser 1 point 2 months ago

In my opinion not to sound like an *** would go to r51600 see if a gtx 1070 could fit in the budget instead.

travismoritz 2 points 2 months ago

that'd work just fine if you wanted to but you could be better off just getting the 2600 only using 8gb of memory as 8 is enough for most games. That could create some room in the budget, and you also could keep your eye on ebay or other used sites to try and find a good deal just make sure it hasn't been a mining gpu

57yuhgyh 1 point 2 months ago

Yeah, you're right. The 1600 also has a better stock cooler. And to answer the other guy: 8GB are too little for 2018. If this were a <600$ build maybe.

Vlaaz 1 point 2 months ago

Does this computer run fortnight with ultra settings over 100 FPS?

TheQuackSavior 1 point 2 months ago

Yes.

fearless_coconut 1 point 2 months ago

Hmmm this might be one to save. I haven't built a gaming pc before, only standard ones

Takka 1 point 2 months ago

it's pretty much the same, maybe just how to install a GPU but it's as easy as installing ram more or less. You should be fine building it if you built one before

bitasuite 1 point 2 months ago

Could I use this with an Nvidia Shield or do I need an Intel CPU? Also could someone recommend a nice white case? Thanks

travismoritz 2 points 2 months ago

If you want an intel CPU it'd work just fine you'd just have to pick out a different motherboard as the b450 isnt compatible with intel sockets. https://www.amazon.com/NZXT-Tower-Computer-White-CA-S340W-W1/dp/B00NGMIBXC/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1535210554&sr=8-2&keywords=nzxt+white thats a nice white case if you want it

Rocketsox313 1 point 2 months ago

I bought the wrong motherboard by accident and purchased the B450M Pro-M2. Will this still work?

Takka 2 points 2 months ago

Yes, since it's still AM4

freesol 1 point 2 months ago

It says it supports up to 64gb of ram but the motherboard only has 2 alots? And in spec max os 32gb

travismoritz 1 point 2 months ago

yeah it is wrote wrong the motherboard is microATX so it only has 2 dimm slots, but if you just want a full ATX tower and not micro ATX then you could go with a normal sized motherboard such as https://www.amazon.com/GIGABYTE-B450-AORUS-PRO-Motherboard/dp/B07FW85VFT/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1535210650&sr=8-2&keywords=b450 or https://www.amazon.com/Ryzen-Gaming-Motherboard-B450M-CSM/dp/B07FKV5HWJ/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1535210650&sr=8-1&keywords=b450

langalore 1 point 2 months ago

Nice guild. I would up the memory to 3000 though. Most of the reviews and builds I've seen pair 2nd gen Ryzen with 3000+ to take full advantage.

Takka 1 point 2 months ago

yes this is my fav guild

zetu 1 point 2 months ago

Do i need a internet card

Takka 1 point 2 months ago

if your using wifi you may need a wifi adapter

hamsterboy 1 point 2 months ago

Noob here. What would you recommend for wifi adapter in that kind of motherboard? I'm planning to buy either a motherboard with wifi (no idea right now what model) or same motherboard with wifi adapter.

FieriRoad 1 point 4 days ago

Ok so I am a complete rookie, because this is my first build, and I'm kinda confused by this, If I were to use the Net Dyn WiFi adapter where would I plug it in, and does it feed off of my current WiFi or create a new one (I'm assuming the latter but I want to be sure)? And lastly, I'm not sure whether or not I'd upgrade the Motherboard because along with the WiFi adapter, it'll raise the price of the build a lot. Am I just doing this wrong or is that how it's supposed to be?

Thanks for your help!

Theenano 1 point 2 months ago

Prob a dumb question but is the size of the MB significant at all? Like, I see the one on the parts list is a microATX so is the only benefit is to be able to fit it in a smaller case or is there any performance difference with an ATX board in the same price range?

manirelli staff submitter 8 Builds 2 points 2 months ago

ATX motherboards generally have additional ports/pcie slots and more fan headers than mATX motherboards but it will vary based on model.

stin9999 1 point 2 months ago

Great build, this is all just food for thought. MSI armor RX 580 8GB from amazon.com for 325 all in. Same card was running 350 to 375 amazon.ca. Offers same performance for 55 bucks less. Also had the Master box 3.1 your going to be running high temps. I ditched mine for a more air flow choice but is was hard cause the thing looks so good. For PSU's they are selling EVGA 550 bronze for 55 bucks. [STAFF REMOVED] Hope this helps save more money!

The sale of those keys violate Microsoft ToS, and the keys may be unexpectedly disabled. Recommending, suggesting, advising, encouraging, hinting, or in any way implying these keys as a solution or option is not allowed on this site.

papashug 1 point 2 months ago

would this run pubg and fortnite, at 144 fps and high graphics?

Takka 1 point 2 months ago

fortnite maybe, but PUBG is not well optimized so might have to check for that. Might need to drop to medium/low to get 144 fps

dunc.grn 1 point 2 months ago

I have never built a pc before would this be good to start as a first build

Takka 1 point 2 months ago

I think you'll be fine. But changing the motherboard is a good idea I think.

vagabond139 5 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

Yes.

AgentTeen 1 point 2 months ago

newbie here does it come with an operating system or do I have to buy the operating system myself

Potatogamer1230 2 points 2 months ago

you have to buy the OS your self. if you already have a prebuilt laptop or pc you could use the OS from that. you would just need to get your product key.

HasNeyn 1 point 29 days ago

You don't have to buy the operating system. You could just use an inactivated version of Windows, like me. Keep in mind that there will be a watermark in the bottom right corner of your screen saying "Activate Windows". If that doesn't annoy you, get the inactivated version of Windows. It works just like the full version but only with the watermark.

TW08 1 point 2 months ago

Question: Can this PC run rendering programs such as Lumion 8?

Takka 0 points 2 months ago

No, need to get a better GPU, CPU should be fine

ohyesdanny 1 point 2 months ago

Is this able to stream and play games and have other pages open in the background at the same time with no issues.

Takka 1 point 2 months ago

stream, not really. Open pages are mostly RAM so with 16 gb here you will be fine for that

disabel95 1 point 2 months ago

Can someone please help? I just finished the build, everything turns on, but the graphics card turns off after 10 seconds, and I have no signal on my monitor. How do I fix this?

gaming_tryhard 1 point 2 months ago

Did you plug in the hdmi cable?

serjien 1 Build 1 point 2 months ago

Thanks for sharing this build. I built this one over the past week, with slight modifications, and it has been running great. I added the two extra fans for the case just in case. Read lots of reviews saying it doesnt have very good airflow. So far, with 3 fans, it has maintained things cool.

CaptainClumsy 1 point 2 months ago

Would this be able to run games such as Planet Coaster at high graphical settings?

manirelli staff submitter 8 Builds 1 point 2 months ago

Absolutely.

hamsterboy 1 point 2 months ago

Noob here. I may need a wifi for our current setup in our apartment. With that, should I buy a different motherboard with wifi or just a wifi adapter? If motherboard with wifi, what would you recommend on this build? if wifi adapter, anything particular? Using it for gaming (primary) and work/other stuff like excel, visio, photoshop, vegas pro (secondary).

Thanks!

atomicknight1 3 points 2 months ago

In general motherboards with built in wi-fi have really bad wi-fi adapters unless you get a really pricey one. You can get a really quality wi-fi adapter for $50-$60 that you just plug in. much cheaper than getting a top of the line motherboard, and easier to replace if something happens

Takka 2 points 2 months ago

I think you should get another motherboard, I recommand the Gigabyte - X470 AORUS ULTRA GAMING ATX AM4 Motherboard

or this one : https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B079VWKBTT/?tag=pcp0f-20

hamsterboy 2 points 2 months ago

Thanks for the references. This one really helps.

NoahTheGoat666 1 point 2 months ago

Will this run fortnite on epic?

Takka 0 points 2 months ago

Depends on the resolution you are running at.

Vinnyb 1 point 2 months ago

Would this be able to work with the LG 43inch 4K monitor for non-gaming (business) applications? I plan on using the feature that splits it into 4 21.5inch 1080P monitor equivalents. My business apps include mostly stock trading applications like thinkorswim or TC2000 (in case anyone knows of them).

Takka 1 point 2 months ago

Yes. Any monitors that have the same port than you GPU or motherboard works. In fact those programs wouldn't even need 4K or this PC, you could get a cheaper one and it would work fine since you don't game nor edit videos

atomicknight1 1 point 2 months ago

Would this build work with ripjaws v series 8GB memory rather than 16, and a rosewill hive 550W bronze. It says its compatible when I edit the build, but just wanted to make sure since I already have those parts laying around

Takka 1 point 2 months ago

If it's a DDR4 kit it should work. Same with the PSU your have

vagabond139 5 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

Yes.

toastyBEARcub 1 point 2 months ago

Question about the motherboard. I see a lot of comments saying to maybe change the motherboard. Should I stick with the motherboard on the build or what motherboard should I use instead? I am building this exact build minus the case. For the case I went with a pricier Corsair mid tower.

manirelli staff submitter 8 Builds 1 point 2 months ago

Depending on your region and retailer settings you are going to see a different motherboard than other people viewing this list. If you have questions about a particular part I would make a post in the applicable forum or lock the parts in the part list and post to the part list opinions wanted forum.

GyrosPizzeria 1 Build 1 point 2 months ago

You should change the case, lite 3.1 is pretty bad.

GetBombarded 1 point 2 months ago

Hey anyone know if I can run fortnite,csgo,league,worldofwarcraft and maybe gta and other games on this pc?

Takka 1 point 2 months ago

Yes you can, although change the motherboard if you want to be able to upgrade later on

ChillySnow 1 point 2 months ago

Whats the average fps?

Takka 1 point 2 months ago

It depends on the game dude

ChillySnow 1 point 1 month ago

Fortnite, Skyrim, Pubg, cod

Al12eksi03 1 point 1 month ago

Should destroy Cancernite and Skyrim. Pubg and cod should run at atleast 60 fps aswell

gigglepig_buster 1 point 2 months ago

people have been saying that this mobo is sketch, is there another you would reccomend?

Takka 2 points 2 months ago

The Asus PRIME B450-PLUS is pretty good in my opinion. If you have a little bit money there is the Asus ROG STRIX B450-F GAMING

57yuhgyh 1 point 2 months ago

Imho the -F series is way overpriced for the B450 chipset. The asrock pro lineup are a better deal.

Takka 1 point 2 months ago

but LEDS tho

BrydenHorsler 1 point 2 months ago

can this build run Call of duty: Black Ops 3 at 80-120 fps?

Takka 1 point 2 months ago

Yes. Depends on resolution too. At 1080p you should be fine.

BrydenHorsler 2 points 2 months ago

Thanks a lot.

gigglepig_buster 1 point 2 months ago

Do I need a sound card? or is it onboard somewhere? I would want directional sound for headphones and such.

manirelli staff submitter 8 Builds 2 points 2 months ago

The vast majority of people can use the onboard audio on the motherboard without issue.

gigglepig_buster 1 point 2 months ago

What should I go for if i want an intel CPU instead of AMD

Takka 1 point 2 months ago

Maybe an i5 8600 or Intel Core i5-7500

I would say you would need to get a better cooler if your going with intel though.

Ryzen really is the better option

gigglepig_buster 1 point 2 months ago

How would the ASRock - B450M-HDV Micro ATX AM4 Motherboard go in this build?

Takka 2 points 2 months ago

It would work fine since it's a B450 AM4 motherboard. Remember that AM4 is for AMD Ryzen CPU's.

Strricken 1 point 2 months ago

Hi noob here but I modified this list a little bit can anyone tell me if this part list is ok or if you would change anything thanks in advance! https://pcpartpicker.com/list/vKPCCb

Takka 1 point 2 months ago

I actually think the one you made is better. If you have the budget i'd say go for it. You could even try and fit a gtx 1070 in there wich would give you a pretty decent boost in FPS. But would change the powersupply for a 650w or 600w at least

Takka 1 point 2 months ago

https://pcpartpicker.com/list/KFDtkd

This would be great for 1000$ ish

Strricken 1 point 2 months ago

Thank you!!!

vagabond139 5 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

The NexG/G1 is a very poor choice in PSU. The NexG/G1 is group regulated vs. DC-DC, as a result of being group regulated it has less than ideal voltage regulation and it has merely average ripple suppression, and it has decent build quality. Sounds good right? Without accounting for price its not a bad unit but accounting for its price its competing with juggernauts way out its league like the Seasonic Focus, Evga G3, and the BitFenix Whisper M which are all around better in every way. Even the cheaper Corsair CXM is better than the NexG/G1.

chowderhead05 1 point 1 month ago

I'm a first-timer, got any recommended construction videos, or guides?

vagabond139 5 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

PCPP has quite a few videos of them building PC's. Also just look up how to build a PC, plenty of stuff will come up.

Orangeman9000 1 point 1 month ago

Will this be able to run gta 5 with mods?

vagabond139 5 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

Yes.

Spec_Opz_Maroon 1 point 1 month ago

I am thanking you for the cheap 16gb ram I really needed that <3

EminemsEyebrows 1 point 1 month ago

PC Noob here. I’m looking into building my first PC and this build looks like it would be perfect for me. However, I can spend $100-120 extra on this build with my current budget. Is there any recommendations that someone could give me to make this build better?

Happymallow32 1 point 1 month ago

What are you looking for in you pc, if you are gaming this will be fine, if you will game and stream it i recommend a ryzen 7 1700 which has 2 extra cores and only 70 dollars more!

Shoogy 1 point 1 month ago

I am going to be building a PC soon and i want to know is this a good PC to build 1 for starting to build a PC and not knowing anything on how to build one and 2 is this a good enough PC to run Fortnite on the highest graphic settings? No maybes I need for sure answers please.

Sebebi 1 point 1 month ago

This build can definitely play fortnite at the highest settings, although I believe if you upgrade the ram to say 3000 megahertz you could get even more performance because of the ryzen cpu.

Shoogy 1 point 1 month ago

Thx

Happymallow32 1 point 1 month ago

Hello, will this work with a Ryzen 7 1700?

Sebebi 1 point 1 month ago

Yes this build would work with that cpu, although the mobo is b450 so it could also work with the ryzen 7 2700

NEWPC2005 1 point 1 month ago

Dang that's called bang for your buck.

kamilo1621 1 point 1 month ago

do you know what fps will this machine let me have in CS:GO?

Beckettcarr 1 point 1 month ago

Can we switch out the case for something different as long as its a micro-ATX?

Sebebi 1 point 1 month ago

yes

Andromeda112 1 point 1 month ago

Would one know if this would work well? (I have hard drives and graphics card etc) https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/list/7rP2zY

FrenchFry 1 point 1 month ago

Can I substitute the gtx 1060 with a 4gb 1050ti?

Sebebi 1 point 1 month ago

yes

QueenLexi13 1 point 1 month ago

How well do you guys think this would run fortnite? and on what settings?

MeezoNugget 1 point 19 days ago

100+ FPS on epic settings

donutly 1 point 1 month ago

i can never understand why these builds dont add an OS

LitJo19 1 point 1 month ago

i am very interested in this build and i have some questions....do i need a cpu cooler if i dont want to overclock or the stock cooler is enough? will i be able to run cod ww2, far cry 5, bf5 and pubg in 1080p at 60fps? (my monitor is 1080p@60hz) is msi B450 tomahawk a better choice in motherboard?

Sebebi 1 point 1 month ago

great motherboard and this graphics card is perfect for 1080p 60hz. even 144hz if you want to upgrade in the future

ninh 1 point 1 month ago

Hello, I'm a noob. Would changing the motherboard to the ASRock - B450M-HDV Micro ATX AM4 be OK? Also, would I have to buy a Windows 10 Key?

Sebebi 1 point 1 month ago

definitely yes. would totally recommend that mobo. now about that windows 10 can’t really say anything on this site but just youtube search about it

msbcool 1 point 1 month ago

1) How much will the 2600 overclock with the stock cooler?
2) Is the 1060/RX 580 enough for 2560x1080 (21:9 1080p) on AAA games (the games I'm playing/interested in playing are R6, Shadow of War, The Witcher 3, GTA V, Skyrim, and Fallout)? I am willing to sacrifice some settings for this.
3) Is 8GB of RAM enough for the games mentioned above?

Sebebi 1 point 1 month ago

You should aim for 3.8~4.0ghz with the stock cooler and the 1060 is definitely good for any of those games, but make sure to get the 6gb model. 8gb ram is good for almost all demanding games, so maybe when RAM prices drop even further get another 8gb stick or buy a 2x4 kit twice with a different mobo.

Thanks.

Sebebi 1 point 1 month ago

Looks great, just make sure to upgrade that ram to at least 3000mrtz because of the ryzen cpu.

lilOOFS 1 point 1 month ago

could make it cheaper

TAM305 1 point 26 days ago

Nice build!!!

shellshocked 1 point 25 days ago

Will this run ark at 30 FPS on medium settings

Guardian974 1 point 16 days ago

If i copied this exact build, would you say it’s futureproof? Like would I be able to switch out to a 1080ti or an rtx card?

livingspeedbump 2 Builds 1 point 15 days ago

Everything but that MOBO checks out, would spend a few extra bucks to get something much nicer.

YHJVHMGC 1 point 15 days ago

I dont know if any of you are car enthusiasts like me but I would like to run Assetto Corsa, Forza horizon for and some other similair games. I know that Assetto Corsa isnt a super demanding game but I would like to run it on VR later down the line, do you think this would be enough for VR?

Nater650 1 point 13 days ago

My GTX 1060 3 GB + i7-8700 prebuilt rig just got put to shame by this thing :(

Nater650 1 point 13 days ago

From my experience, you actually can run Fallout 4 with the GTX 1060 3 GB, just turn off V-sync and use Nvidia’s optimal settings and you should be fine, FPS won’t be as high as it would be if you ran it with a GTX 1060 6 GB, but still, either way, a GTX 1060 no matter which variant you choose would be just about perfect for running fallout 4 at 1080p. Fallout 76 at 1080p at ultra settings? Not so much

Toupan 1 point 13 days ago

I ordered the whole part list. Is there any way to get a tutorial on how to put together this exact build? Or at least something similar? Also is there anything else I need to get? e.g cords, a specific screwdriver ect...

This is my first time attempting to build a computer, So, sorry if these are stupid questions. Thanks!

Looking to play farm simulator 19 ets2 and other simulator games all with ton of mods how well will this hold up to them?

aova 1 point 12 days ago

Will some of the parts be on sale on Black Friday or Cyber Monday?

Davidc9998@yahoo.com 1 point 12 days ago

Do NOT buy this motherboard with a 2600. It's not made for this cpu and you will throttle. Buy x470 instead.

PixelsNPolygons 1 point 10 days ago

I am looking for something that can play, and possible stream games and graphics quality is really important to me, is there another build someone might recommend or would this suffice? I see a lot of people saying that the MOBO is not good in this build, however, whenever I to put a new one into the build I get this warning "Some AMD B350 chipset motherboards may need a BIOS update prior to using Pinnacle Ridge CPUs. Upgrading the BIOS may require a different CPU that is supported by older BIOS revisions." Any advice?

Hotsmithy2016 1 point 10 days ago

Just wanted to say that the 1060 in australia is not available so might want to change it

Frostyplays 1 point 9 days ago

So I'll need to get a operating system like windows 10 right sorry I'm new to computers

Zalein 1 point 9 days ago

Is most of this plug and play?so I need to buy Windows? GTA 5 with mods?

Zanamaho 1 point 9 days ago

bit of a noob here, but if i subbed in the 'ASUS GeForce GTX 1060 6GB Dual-Fan OC Edition' for this gpu, would everything still be compatible?

Also, how does the gpu that i just mentioned compare to the one in the build?

Also, would there be any compatibility issues with if I were to get a ryzen 5 2600x instead of this one?

everettburgin 1 point 8 days ago

Does anyone know where a guide to build this is?

edwarlkd814 1 point 7 days ago

Is this build powerful enough to run Minecraft VR at high setting?

Gingerbread_Man 1 point 6 days ago

Is it a good idea to add a corsaire master masterliquid ML240L RGB cpu cooler. Or to secondly replace the storage with a SEAGATE ST2000DM006 2 tb hard drive?

pyroinventor 1 point 5 days ago

If you want a few extra fps, go for the 3000mhz version of the ram. The recent Ryzen CPUs, especially the APUs, benefit from the faster speeds.

Tourgi 1 point 4 days ago

Hello , I got 7 years old pc with new 1060 gpu And i tried to run cod bo 4 and i got poor performence. I got i7 3770 8gb with low hz

Is this build good enouth for cod bo 4 ?

FieriRoad 1 point 4 days ago

Hey, this build looks great but I just have a few questions. First of all, I'm just double checking but would this be VR compatible because sooner or later down the road I want to be able to play VR on this PC without having to upgrade. Also if anyone knows if this would presumably be able to run stuff like photoshop, I assume it can and that this is VR ready based on what I've looked up, I just want to make sure before I consider this as my first PC.

Thanks!

Evil_Siin 1 point 3 days ago

I wouldn't recommend PNY, they may offer lower prices but certainly aren't worth it in the long run

AlecaialexOMG 1 point 2 days ago

can i play fortnite and overwhatch good??

JayMillTec 1 point 11 hours ago

I'd honeslty get a better case it doesn't have to good cable management and is a bit flimsy. But if you don't mind that go ahead.

Acxitma 1 point 27 minutes ago

I'm saving up to build this. Thanks for the help ;)

No performance impact on Mobo do to size. They take away extra PCI slots. No big deal unless you want wireless, sound card, Killer etc...

Medium 1080p you are easily looking at 5+ years.
