$700 Gaming PC build?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Original PosterOP

I would like to build a gaming PC that can run games like Rainbow Six Siege, GTA V, and simulation games like ATS and TSW without any problems. I'm open to ideas for either AMD or Intel but the budget is ~~$700 with $750 being the max. Is a PC possible in this price range or am I delusional? Feel free to reply with builds and suggestions. I would like to keep the components as high-grade/ new as possible that way I can get as long of use as possible with the budget I am working with. (USD,No monitor (can get one locally), have peripherals)

Hi, what's your location (as in country)? Do you need a monitor? If no, what resolution and refresh rate is your current monitor? Do you need peripherals?

Is the monitor included in the budget? What resolution and refresh rate will the monitor be?

Bad version of that card. Its way too loud.

 

Not worth the minor savings.

I was gonna throw in the sapphire card which is about 20$ more, though just to make sure OP knew how cheap a decent PC could be- yknow.

Good to know that the cooler on that unit is shitty though

I know. Its why i posted a better cheaper build, using the XFX cooler a different PSU and a cheaper but still really good case.

 

If i would thrownextra cash at something in my 715$ build it would be

This SSD instead of the 250 GB one. Its twice the storage for not a lot more.

I assume that these PCs in this thread would have a hard time streaming without some sort of upgrade?

No these PCs can stream just fine. Like i wouldnt do 1080p CPU encoding but it can do that aswell. 

 

If you really want ti stream you could allways pick up the r7 1700 instead of the 2600. It can stream a bit vetter
