Best Price/Performance PC for Gaming 1080p@240hz

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello everyone,

I want a gaming computer that will power a 1080p @ 240hz monitor.

I prefer AA over textures, effects and would rather run 8x MSAA than high textures or effects.

 

What I've found is: (german prices https://geizhals.de )

250€ - i5 9600K

210€ - 2x8Gb G.Skill Trident Z 4266 CL19

775€ - Gigabyte Aorus RTX 2080

190€ - Gigabyte Z390 Aorus Pro ( Gamers Nexus says it's good for CPU OC - phases over phases)

165€ - BeQuiet! Dark Power Pro 11 750Watt

 

(not sure about this)

160€ - Corsair Hydro H150i Pro

330€ - Cooler Master Cosmos C700M

190€ - Cooler Master MasterCase H500M

 

My issue is that I'm not sure if I want an AIO or a custom water cooling.

I seriously don't car if it's 200euros more or less. I wont touch this computer for next 3-5 years

(only cleaning and maintaining the water cooling or something)

 

GAMES:

Apex

CoD

CSGO

mostly tryhard games :)


AMD FX8320 | GTX660 | 4x4GB DDR3 | LG ZR2740W

Logitech Wireless Pro  | Logitech G413 | Nuforce uDAC5  | AKG K612

For price to performance, neither. Dark Rock Pro 4, or NH-D15.

Again, if you want bang for buck, grab a 550 watt. Your system needs only like 350 at max.

 

 


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus threadUserbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

If you really want 240Hz, you'd need as many frames as possible, and for that, I can't recommend anything under i7 (8700K, 9700K).

Those games all don't use more than 6c6t so your statement makes zero sense...
