Looking for PC Recommendations

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I have a strict budget of $1000 and cannot go over like $10 of the budget.

I need a pc that can game decently and stream games like overwatch, apex, and others.

I have a 144hz monitor so i need something that could keep up with that already. I had a build planned but some parts went up in price and other complications.

anybody have a pcpartpicker list that works in my needs?

this is a good platform. everything can be sourced from Ebay for FAAAR cheaper than those retail prices. buying a GPU is still not friendly. a gtx1070 still $200-280 alone.

He has a $1000 budget and you only left $140 for a gpu. You are spending too much on the cpu, cooler and ssd. No need for the 2700X when the 1700 is $140 or so cheaper. The stock cooler will do fine for the short term, and no need for an expensive NVMe SSD when you can get a Crucial MX500 or similar for a lot less.

just a fair disclaimer: I mostly deal in used,3rd party, local deals, and online auction house's such as eBay

 

just because someone has 1k to spend doesn't means they want to spend that. The onboard Vega is good enough to game especially if he has a gsync/freesync. the actual build cost when sourcing parts is low$ 600's on Ebay and major retailers. as stated GPU market is kinda meh even in used market.

 

switching to intel side on the 8700k platform will well push it over 1k budget. Your correct, using NVMe  is optional however, at 60-80 used ssd for 500g might as well and get a used NVMe  for nearly the same price. as for the stock cooler under load will be 60+c on average a little flair at a affordable AIO doesn't hurt where i made room for it.

I didn't say he has to spend the full $1000. That is up to the op.

 

What onboard Vega are you referring to ? The 2700X doesn't have an igpu. If he is using a 144Hz monitor then he needs a decent gpu, even something like an RX 580 would do ok.

 

As for the NVMe SSD it really makes little difference to load/boot times. A SATA is just as good for less money.

 

As for the cooler he would be fine with a Cryorig H7 if he wants an aftermarket one. The stock is fine though if he isn't overclocking, and 60+c is perfectly acceptable. As long as it isn't getting in the high 80s-90s then it isn't a problem.

You forgot a hard drive in that build, obviously $100 is plenty for a drive but its worth pointing out you are missing it. Do you have ANY hardware out of your previous rig that can be reused?

You might as well go with an 8 core R7 2700 as you can fit it in your budget seeing as you don't need storage.
