PC build suggestions

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey, I am looking to build a new pc but I haven't kept up with the new current pc parts that are available. I would like some advice and suggestions on a build I could get. all help is greatly appreciated.

1. Budget & Location

I would like the build to be $2,000 AUD which is about $1,400 $USD.  I am willing to spend a bit extra if I need to but I would rather not.

2. Aim

I want the pc mainly for gaming and to be able to run the upcoming games smoothly like cyberpunk, doom, etc. I also will use to pc for general use and school work.

3. Monitors

I currently have a BenQ gaming monitor (i forgot the model) but I am looking to buy 2 new monitors for a dual setup which are the same monitor. I don't want 2 different monitors. I plan on buying the monitors at a later date so they don't need to fit in with the budget I mentioned before. Any suggestions on some monitors I could get would be appreciated. I don't plan on going to a triple monitor setup as 2 will be fine for me.

4. Peripherals

I currently have the Corsair k70 lux RGB keyboard, Razer death adder and the hyperx cloud 2 gaming headset. (quite the mix of brands I know.). I will need to purchase a copy of windows.

5. Why are you upgrading?

I want to upgrade as my current pc is 6 years old and is struggling to run some of the newer games as it will either freeze or just crash/

Well you picked a bad time, because Ryzen 3000 comes out on July 7th, so I'd maybe just wait for that. MSI's B450 boards can update the bios without a CPU, can should be fine with the 8 core assuming they get updates, just wait for reviews.

 

Otherwise probably go with a cheap RX 570 or 580, or NAVI comes out on the same day.

 

I really wouldn't bother with a triple monitor set up though, just go for a big 4k display or a 1440p 21:9 display


I edit my posts a lot

You should rather wait fr the upcoming ryzen 2 cpus nd navi gpus. They are worth the wait.

If that's all 2000 is gonna get him, there's something sincerely wrong...

 

Here's a solid ass gaming build:

  • The i7 9700K is certainly doable at this price point, you could save a few with the 8700K and really not lose too much in performance as well.
    • Ryzen 3rd gen is coming out soon and boasts that they have beat Intel in single core performance as well. I am interested to see if they have! If that's the case, at this price point the i7 would be an easy swap out for an R7 3700X or 3800X available July 7th. The board would be a swap out for either a B550 or X570 board available on the same date. Pricing-wise it is a fairly similar model.
    • Do note that even if Ryzen beats Intel a bit, these parts will be competitive in gaming and are currently available. They're only boasting a 1-2% single core victory.
  • Solid cooler, MOBO, and PSU for stock or overclocked use. If you could foot another $25 this RMX PSU would be a nice upgrade.
  • The Windforce RTX cards are super solid. They Overclock well, and their stock and boost speeds are massive just out of the box. If I were buying right now, I wouldn't look any other direction.

 

Additionally you could try this:

I knocked down the i7 to an i5 9600K. Not as good, but still a solid gaming CPU. What you lose in FPS there, you'd make up for in the upgrade to the RTX 2080. The cooler and MOBO downgraded accordingly to make that squeeze, since the i5 doesn't require as much nuts as the i7 does for overclock.

 

I think overall, the first build is where I'd land, but this is an example of being able to fit a 2080 into your build and still using a modern Intel chip.

 

Realistically if Ryzen beats out Intel, the i5 is the section that's going to take the heaviest blow, since the ONLY thing i5 has over Ryzen 5 (or Ryzen 7 for that matter.) is single core gaming performance.

monitors? peripherals?

Provided the games, he wont need that much horsepower.

Also, this budget can be used somewhere else.
