At 720p, 16 chunks, full smooth lighting and particles, basically as close as you get to Max settings 720p, with optifine and a uhd 620 iGpu, I get above 144 fps. I'd expect to get around 240 fps with a 1050. I say that the 1050is plenty

1st: The motherboard you should get depends entirely on what features you want. 2nd: You should really get rid of the 250gb ssd. I don't know why you have it, it's just $60 going nowhere. 3rd: This is what I'd do on this budget. PCPartPicker Part List

You get: 1. Faster Ram 2. Better CPU (12 cores, 24 threads, way faster, overclockable (I know the one you had is too, I just wanted to say it) 3. WiFi 4. WAAAAAAAAY faster SSD 5. Better PSU (with RGB which will at least triple your FPS)

That was fast! Also, nice! You have more than 60gb storage, but I'd just get rid of the gpu. I kept it in on my build because, come on, filter, but yeah, thanks!

I agree. 500w is much more than I'm used to (I have a 375w psu) but I'd still not be comfortable with it.

As far as I'm aware, it loses you a grand total of like 2 fps. I'd just get the 2600x and save a buck.

In my opinion, you should really just use a r5 2600. They're $140 and, correct me if I'm wrong, but there's really not much more performance to be had other than like a 200Mhz difference. And, you could even get the 2600x or 2700 for a similar price. I just don't think there's really a need to get the 2600. Edit: You might as well just get the 2700x. I just look at the prices, it's nearly the same price as the 3600.

Correction on my last comment: If you want them to mirror (there's a mouse on each of them) each other and not "extend" (you move your mouse from one to the other) each other, then I would suggest having the same spec monitor to make them look similar, but if you want them to extend each other, do what you want.

As far as I'm aware they don't. I was just on a 1080p laptop screen, a 900p monitor, and a 720p tv (yes I know they are garbage, I am just poor).

Where you can save: 1. Unless you really really need 5tb storage, I'd change it to a 2tb hdd and get a 1tb nvme ssd,(https://pcpartpicker.com/product/9nhKHx/intel-660p-series-1tb-m2-2280-solid-state-drive-ssdpeknw010t8x1) Because nvme is faster than SATA (although if you really need more, than you can get more) 2. Honestly, if you aren't overclocking, the cooler included with the cpu should be plenty, so I'd get rid of that. 3. If you have anything better than a 1440p 144hz ultrawide, you don't really need anything better than a rtx 2080, so you can drop the super. 4. Honestly, that case has a bunch of stuff that you really don't need (and also IMO looks pretty bad), and also it's a bit more expensive than you need. A NZXT H500 is kinda my go to due to the fact that it looks good. Where you can (and in my opinion, should) spend more: 1. A better power supply is basically a must because the rtx 2080 takes a lot of power. 2. You can get more/faster memory. I chose 32GB 3200Mhz because if you're editing, you might need more than 16GB. 3. You can get Windows 10 Pro. 4. You should really have a wireless network card if you are going to be using wifi, and when I said you "should" I mean you "need". This is what I'd do if I were you. I'd just pocket the money you'd save, or, what I'd do, get a new monitor if you're current one that you have is less than 1440p 144hz or better.

(in my area (Texas) it says that your build is $2215.15, while mine is $1732.69 (nice), and you can get a really good monitor for that)

Thanks. I would usually do something like that, but for an ultra budget build I wouldn't. Plus, anything is an upgrade from what I'm currently using (hp p6654y, Google it and prepare to puke), so yeah. Also budget is tight.

holy poop that's a good pc for what you paid. I'm going to use this but change a few things, so thanks for the idea. specifically going to take out all the peripherals and rgb, use the carbide 100r and add a gpu. Here's what I got: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/JKHmZR. And, it was cheaper!
