Budget gaming build ; need help

He's playing poker and light video editing for goodness sakes, no need for a 2060. Also helps in video editing to have more vram so that's why the rx 570 8gb makes more sense. You don't need anything special for poker.

Hello! I would like to know your suggestions on the budget gaming PC I am planning to build. I am an online poker player and building this PC mainly for grinding poker, editing some videos, and running somewhat resource heavy heads up display program and SQL database. I would really like your opinions on the build and what more could be done in terms of price cut if anything's overkill or what could be added more to the build. Here is the list :

 

Intel i5 9400f

ZOTAC GeForce GTX 1060 AMP Edition 6GB GDDR5X

 2 pcs. of Corsair Vengeance LPX 8GB DDR4 3000Mhz for Intel 7th, 8th Gen

MSI MPG Z390 Gaming Plus LGA1151 (Intel 8th 9th Gen) M.2 USB 3.1

WD Blue SN500 500GB NVMe Internal SSD - Gen3 PCIe, M.2 2280

Corsair Carbide Series CC-9011050-WW Mid-Tower Steel Gaming Case

Corsair VS550 550-Watt Power Supply

 

Thanks.

1. Budget and currency? Also whether PCPartPicker prices apply?

 

2. This CPU platform has little future upgradability compared to Ryzen, but that's the least of the list's problems

 

3. One of the most pointless GPUs ever, the 1060 GDDR5X. Gets beat out by the newer 1660 for similar prices, much more expensive than the AMD RX 580, hardly faster than the 1060 6gb GDDR5 it's based on.

 

4. Cheapo PSU that's not competitive in pricing, you can pay $10-20 more for a Bronze unit, i.e. better efficiency. Gains that actually get compensated after some time through power bills

Thanks for giving it your time and replying. Budget is 80k and currency is Indian Rupees (INR). I don't know about pcpartpicker. Have to check it real quick.

Any chance to wait for Monday and look what happened there?

There might be some new information about an upcoming, 7nm Product.


The 9400f seems like the worst choice ever for that Setup...

For product release to available in India is like extra 2 months of buffer, let alone a serious price surge after that. I'd say add at least 3 months after US prices turn normal before it gets viable in India

 

Unless Zen 2 turns out far less impressive than rumours make it seem

What are your opinions on 2600?

Also, I am not interested in any games other than the poker software of the site on which I would be playing. PC would be mainly used for grinding online poker, running some poker solvers, running a heads up display, and video editing.

Well you don't need the single core performance desperately because as you say, you're playing poker. The 1600 should be fine but if you want the 2600, go for it.

MeatFeastMan has a nice build. All I would say is that if you want to use Intel Quick sync for video editing using Adobe Premier or Elements, you'll need an Intel chip with an integrated GPU, not the 9400F. I would also use a Nvidia card if using Premier Pro.

With the video editing and more processor heavy workload in mind, I opted for a Ryzen 7 2700X build and went with the lighter RX 570 8GB for the GPU, since the gaming load is lighter. This will provide much more CPU power than the 9400F as well as more than the CPUs listed above.

It is also unintentionally all coming from Amazon India, so there's the benefit of getting it all at once.

Thanks for all the wonderful build recommendations. It helped me a lot and I decided to go with MeatFeastMan's build as it is more suited for my work and way cheaper than the other builds.

If anyone could recommend me a good 24 inch monitor around 10k, my build would be complete.

If you're using Premiere Pro for the video editing you're going to want a GTX 1660 Ti for CUDA acceleration. It's far faster than AMD cards, by far. Anything beyond the 1660 Ti has heavy diminishing returns.  Definitely a 2700 or 2700x for the CPU choice.
