Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi I am not a serious gamer. I was looking for a pc that is worth my money and can run BeamNg drive. (Not 1000 dollars) Does anyone have any advice?

What do you want a PC for?

 

Odds are, based off this post, you can probably spend about 700-800 and be happy

My budget is around 550$ at Max.

Here's something you can work with.

 

 

The CPU should go down in price starting mid July/August.

If they aren't a gamer isn't a 580 probably a bit overkill? Perhaps a 570 or maybe even a 2400G/3400G (with appropriate memory) suffice? Maybe that isn't cost efficient but I don't think that game is particularly demanding.

To my knowledge, beamNG is fairly graphically demanding. The 580 fits in budget fairly nice, thought it could help out.

 

But yeah I agree- if I'm wrong with the game being demanding, then definitely a 2400g.

Does anyone have any prebuilt advice? I don't think I will have a good enough budget for a pre built. I will try a build. Any good recommended parts that work for the game? I can raise my budget to 590$ 

 

 

 

Thanks.😁😁

https://www.newegg.com/abs-computer-technologies-warrior-ala111/p/N82E16883102722?reviews=all&Item=N82E16883102722 almost everything here is at least somewhat of a downgrade compared to building your own, but this is the best value for that price. if you're near a computer store, buy the parts and see how much they would charge you to build it.

look up some build guides on youtube and follow them as you're building the rig, if you can build things with lego bricks you can watch a guide and build the rig yourself.

I used to play with Legos. I have watched a lot of build vids but i cant say I know what to do entirely.

basically you slot in one part, connect all the wires it needs, then move onto the next component.

 

BeamNG in max out graphics at 1080p needs an RTX 2060 or GTX 1070ti to maintain 60fps at all times. My 1070 performs like a 1660 and can hit the minimum 60fps requirement by disabling dynamic reflections.

 

As for CPU, even my overclocked 2600k can do it just fine. It's not really multi-threaded though, so on the cheap a Ryzen 3 1200 overclocked will do, though 1600 will do much better for the money you're paying for.
