Are these Good PC Specs?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B01GVR0PRS/ref=psdc_428651031_t3_B016YI72BQ

 

Above are the specs for a PC I am looking at to get eventually. It is higher then I would like to spend but yeah, it's the best I've seen (With my limited Price and Knowledge).

 

Why am I not building one myself?

Because I Lack the confidence to pick parts out that could be incompatible and not support one thing that's important or even fit inside the case I want to have.

 

I am looking on Amazon and PCWorld (In the UK), because I don't know any trusted places in the UK.

If anyone has any tips for better PC's on Amazon or other Trusted places in the UK I would appreciate it Immensely.

 

P.S.

The Price of the Item in the Link is the highest I am willing to pay although I would prefer to be a lot lower to say £1,200. I would also like to play Games at least, at High with 60FPS for games e.g. Anthem, Destiny 2 etc... (Latest games). I also Don't know how to judge the RTX ones over the GTX series as I'm getting mixed opinions about them, I imagine RTX better then all GTX because they are newer but I've heard from Lines's Videos that is not the case unless it's the RTX 2070/80 ti or something.

 

Any help would be Awesome. - Ross

PCPartPicker has a compatibility filter, so you wouldn't need to worry much.

Indeed we can help you out on parts dont be afraid of device incompatibility.

PC building in 2019 is super easy dude :D

I should have said I'm concerned about messing something up while putting it together although I would love to.

All sites provide a "build your own" system. You pick, they build. 

Its probably more expensive than a pre-built but you can also have moire flexibility in what you want in the system.

Its also more expensive than building it yourself but if you are not comfortable with building yourself then this works well.

 

Note: I have used pcspecialist for a build purchase and so did a colleague of mine. I have also used overclockers for parts to build my own systems

To be honest PC building isnt that hard.

There is no soldering, you dont need a degree in IT or anything like that. Just time, patience, and a Phillips head screwdriver 😃

Worried about compatible parts? Pcpartpicker is a good place to start. Need advice on how to build? youtube is here!

Honestly the hardest part of PC building is the screws and the wires but as long as you know what goes where PC building is like lego bricks

Nothing inherently wrong with what you have there (you are getting a micro atx motherboard with an ATX case which isnt terrible but not sure why you would want to). Not sure you need the optical drive though. You can always buy an external one separately if needs be.

This wont have Wifi so if you want to use Wifi, you will need to either purchase a wifi card or a USB dongle (or change the motherboard to one which has Wifi built in)

 

Which site was this on? Only issue is the "Black ATX Gaming Tower Case" is very vague. The build sites have their own cheap case branding usually kept very vague so its best to know exactly what kind of case you will be getting with it since good airflow will be an important factor in your build.

Did this on computerplanet.co.uk.

 

I only added the opticle drive because I have films/shows that I'd rather keep on disc. That's all.

Alright well using that site as an example, check the others too so that you can price compare. I didnt know the options on computer planet had dropped so significantly (referring to RAM and motherboard options.)

 

Check all sites, get similar specs mapped out and pick the one you like the most either by cheapest or same price but with better components :)

NP. Also for more budget builds, many recommend looking towards AMD rather than Intel. And even an RX580/590 over a GTX/RTX card for the price.

You could potentially lose some performance but you will be saving more than you lose. However in any case, a budget of £1,200 should net you a decent gaming rig.

Just for a laugh these are my Current PC specs (Got in June 2015):

 

gtx 750 2gb

16GB RAM

2 TB

i7-4790

3.60 GHz

4 Processors

DDR3 SDRAM

4 Cores

Windows 7 Pro (Upgraded for Free to Windows 10 when that was a thing)

 

(To Amazon Page of the PC)

https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00SHGZIYC/ref=oh_aui_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1

 

So I definitely need this upgrade when I can afford it XD

Is this a Regular sized board? I don't want a Micro, it just didn't say that so I wouldn't have thought so: what about this: Asus TUF B360-PRO GAMING (Intel B360) - 5xUSB 3.1/4xUSB 2.0/RGB Lights/Dual Band WIFI/Bluetooth

Thats a standard ATX board so should be fine.

Ah now we have some more information I wasnt aware you already had a system. What is performance like in your current system?

 

In this case, you could potential save a load of money by adding an SSD to your current system and purchasing a new GPU.

The amazon listing is a little vague on what everything is, but looking at whats there you can get away with keeping most if not all of what you have an just add/replace 1 or two things to bring it up to modern titles.

Well I have to run modern games at low quality and sometimes with a controller to stop FPS Lag, but other then needing a new graphics card, maybe a i7- with a "k" at the end of it and you say a GPU with an SSD. It works fine with no heat issue apart from a little on the top on the side of the motherboard.

 

I also have no idea how you would even put specifically the OS on the SSD on it's own. Because that's the main reason for having an SSD right?

 

(Added pictures if they add further clarity for some reason lol)
