2019 - $550ish 1080p Build

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Well just got all these parts ordered for some basic 1080p gaming. It's a slight upgrade from my current old 2014 system that I will be giving away to bro who will get his own gaming PC, but in which I might have to replace the old GPU and PSU which seem to be on their last legs. I think i did a pretty good job especially in terms of future upgrades - I will add a HDD and more RAM up to 16GB later.

 

The main games I play are CS:GO, GTA V, Planet Coaster, Tropico series, Metro series, and some old NFS games. I also do some very basic editing for videos and ..memes. It should also help get any student work I have done faster with that SSD. The color scheme i went with is "Kinda-white" couldn't get everything matched up perfectly but the Mobo and GPU have RGB which I can make white. I will post pics as well once it's all set up and built this will be my 2nd PC that I'm building so I'm hoping to do much better this time initially when it comes to cable management etc.

Heard it still get's slightly better temps and I wanted something white if it ends up being crap though it was only 10 bucks and I have the option of putting that into the old FX-8320 system and taking the Hyper 212 EVO out of that. If i was buying a Ryzen CPU though i would keep the wraith cooler without a doubt which are great.

Well the RX 580 was around $189 to start so a bit more but I should be fine with the 570 i don't do anything crazy or care about having my settings maxed out.

 i mean a whole different build. with more, faster ram, a better GPU, and a better CPU for the money, and a better, larger SSD.
