Got it! I just purchased Sapphire RX 570's (making 2 PCs) to run games with it. Thanks for the intel. (pun not intended) :)
Hey! Nice build; epic of you to build one for your brother. Quick question;
I am building a PC for my friend as a surprise for Christmas, with his parent's help. I am at a low budget but am most definitely going to use the i3-9100F... and as of now, no graphics card with it.
How well could the i3-9100 run games alone? I can't find much on youtube regarding it. You might have an idea.
Could have. Ryzen's in the lead now for sure on multitaskers.
I've just been a long term Intel fan as it has been in all of my past PCs and hasn't failed me or I haven't had issues.
Not doing that much multitasking besides a few background tabs and a game. About it; I think I'll be fine.
I do not. I am not interested or really care. As long as my PC doesn't crash I'm good. I play the games, don't benchmark or track them.
If you are looking for performance details watch videos. I watched many on intel vs amd and then gtx 1050 ti vs 1060. It's a huge jump and worth the money if you can find a sale.
I can help you format a build if you are interested. This one would've been cheaper if I bought parts earlier.
Depends on the game.
Setting up Fortnite at epic I got solid 90fps. Decreased some of the settings and I run 160 with no hassle.
League of Legends runs at 250fps. Not sure what settings I have it on.
I would say probably, just keep in mind over 60fps you don't see much of a change. Eyes can't detect it much.
There is definitely videos on Youtube that benchmark those two. Think I watched one.
Yes! I will get a CPU cooler replacement in the future. Got any suggestions?
Thankyou for the upvote!
thanks icarax, very cool!
Thankyou! I'm an Intel guy, glad I don't gotta worry about RAM ig then XD.
Personal aesthetics? Ima go for red, stick with motherboard. Phanteks case is RGB light strips so, will work well. Thanks for the input!
Thankyou good sir! Have a great evening! Cheers.
I actually just got into Tech Deals today! He seems like a pretty positive and informative guy. Definitely will be using his advice to help with purchases; I do not plan on buying the 860EVO unless it is for sale, or I see another high market brand for a good price. Samsung is top notch market my father says, so I will probably not budge much around that. PNY and SanDisk are two good competitors though I might consider.
Thankyou for your advice! I didn't know processors come with Stock Coolers, great to know.
1050Ti I am definitively going with. I agree on that. 2GB is very limited.
Sadly, I have already got my ram. I used Frys.com (They do daily promo codes on PC parts) to get the current 8 GB 2x4 2400MHz. This was a big mistake; this week they have a weekly deal for the 2666 that is cheaper. It's a bummer, but I'll live with it. I probably will eventually upgrade to 16GB anyways.
Thankyou for replying!
