Ok budget build for gaming?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So my budget for a new build is around 700$ (would like to go a bit lower if possible) and the games that I normally play are just CS:GO, Overwatch, GTA V, and sometimes Hunt:Showdown (very unknown game imo). My question is 

 1. Will this be able to support 144hz gaming (specifically in CS)

 2. Will there be any small changes that can lower the price of the build

 3. Is this build good enough to even play Apex (I haven't played it yet)

 

The Build:

P.S. I already have a GPU, a MSI GTX 1050ti

what you have right now is good, you could perhaps get a seagate M.2 120gb ssd which is cheaper, ofcourse only if you're going to use it as a drive for windows, also i'd say wait for Ryzen 3000, maybe april, maybe june, but patience is key

And the Ryzen 3000 is releasing sometime in June right?

cant confirm june, but they said 'MID 2019'
also if only for windows as boot drive, u can save by going 120gb

Huh, so would the new Ryzen 3000 need a newer mobo or can I still use the B450 or is it still unspecified?

  

they said ryzen will have backwards compatibility with previous motherboards until 2020, so yeah ryzen 3000 should work on a b450

Depends on the vrm as well as the new chiplet, as there are some rumours about the vrm not being able to handle the r7 and r9

So if I were to change my RAM, as well as the PSU, what would you suggest for the changes?

He's looking at R5s, not R7s and R9s.
