must be the monitor not supporting 144, you could try picking up a display port cable to see if that works.

It's not that your gpu doesnt support 144hz, it's the monitor, some monitors only support up to 120hz on hdmi 1.4/dual link dvi. What monitor are we talking about?

Yeah, I guess you are right in saying that the word budget can be used in many different ways, what I meant to try and prove was that budget does not strictly associate with cheap.

not necessarily, budget means having a set amount to spend on a build, someone could do a 1000 dollar budget build, budget does not mean cheap

some budgets are higher than others, budget does not necessarily mean 'as cheap as possible'

if you can afford it, upgrade your platform to a ryzen chip, (I'd recommend 2nd gen if you're on a tight budget, but again, if you have the money, maybe a 3600 would be good), If you dont have the money to buy a new mobo, cpu and RAM, then upgrade the GPU (rx 570/580 is good value if you find it cheap used), then if you have more to spend, try to find 16gb ddr3 and/or a new case.

should probably move the pc off the floor, or maybe put it into that dell case if it fits and doesnt have any valuable components inside

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Need help deciding parts for pc (editing content)"

If you're looking for advice for a complete build, there is another forum topic dedicated to that, But for productivity work, I'd definitely recommend a ryzen based system (loads better than intel when it comes to productivity and streaming/editing), and 16gb of fast memory will do the trick nicely. I wouldn't go below a gtx 1050 GPU, and even then, something a bit faster would ensure a smoother experience, perhaps an rx 580/570 would suit your needs. Side note, make sure you include an SSD in your build, it makes editing way easier (faster downloads/uploads, generally faster)

Hope I helped!

Looking good!! Just one thing, I'd suggest a 1440p 144hz monitor over a 240hz 1080p model, 240hz isn't really necessary unless you're an extremely competitive player, so I'd use that money on a higher resolution 144hz display.

In the end, it's your choice to make, just a little bit of advice.

I wouldn't call it an upper mid level build, it's definitely a high end one. Not that it matters much, nice build!

  1. You have enough fans, if you haven't already purchased the 120mm ones yet, then you could go with the 140's (difference between the two is relatively small)

  2. depends on the game, some demanding AAA titles may test your i9 and 2080 super, but other esports and less demanding titles will easily push above your target.

  3. as you said, anything above 32gb is overkill, I think 32gb is not completely necessary for gaming, but if you want to do some streaming, or demanding productivity work down the line, it makes sense.

looks good otherwise!

switching to 1440p means he has to sacrifice 144hz in some titles, it's really up to him.

nice build btw!

I've done some research, and I've found that the q9400 actually holds up pretty well for 720p gaming. I've actually tested the hd 7770 myself, and found that for high 720p, it does just fine, I agree with you, this build probably won't fetch much, and it'd probably be better to use linux or windows 7 than a more current version of windows. Thanks for the advice! much appreciated

besides, the r3 2200g has integrated graphics getting pretty close to the gt 1030 from nvidia so no graphics card needed, and fast memory is by no means necessary to make the processor work. Pairing faster memory with a ryzen chip only slightly increases performance in games and everyday use. Like batto2 said, you need to calm down and think of a nicer way to give criticism.
