My second attempt at planning this rig

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Alright, so I took some of your ideas from my last thread and with the help of some other friends/ online people who are far better at this than I am, I've made this build. Note: 1) I am waiting for the new Ryzen cpus to be released in 7/7 and just have the Ryzen 5 2600 as a placeholder. 2) Budget is 1500 CAD (with tax))

This is supposed to be a gaming rig and I would prefer to stick with the geforce series.

Basically, feel free to correct any of my dumb mistakes and suggest new parts. Thanks!

ps. tax here in Vancouver is 12% so be sure to take that into account.

Also: a case near the 50 dollar range would be nice, thanks!

GPUs in general are for gaming.  Buy what is best at the pricepoint you are aiming for.

I picked the geforce 1660 ti, I just want someone to make sure my build is a solid build

Get X570 if you are going Ryzen 3000 series.  Even the "low end" boards have massively better CPU power delivery.

Is that card better than the 1660 (a 1 on 1 comparison) or is it worse

X570 is the motherboard.

 

RX Vega 56 is miles better than the GTX 1660 and is on fire-sale currently.

I did a comparison and the 1660 and it was pretty close, in some cases its better, https://www.game-debate.com/gpu/index.php?gid=4093&gid2=3956&compare=Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Ti 6GB-vs-AMD Radeon RX Vega 56 8GB

https://www.techpowerup.com/review/msi-geforce-gtx-1660-gaming-x/7.html

 

Look at actual reviews for better data.  Also, Vega 56 gains 20% or more if you up its power limit.

@Felo think about it like this

A 1660ti is in between a 1060 and 1070, while a Vega 56 is on par or a bit better than the 1070. And not only that, the Vega 56 is on sale a lot, cheaper than the 1660ti, why wouldn't you get the Vega?


Just say @Boinbo if you need me! I'll be limited to GPU, CPU, general discussion, peripherals, and new builds and planning though. I'm a potato.

(New)System specs:

Hp Pavilion with Core i3 5010u

HD 5500 Graphics

15 inch 1080p Screen

SKU Number: M1Y2UA#ABA

BIOS (UEFI): Insyde F.81, 7/25/2016

Not to mention that it matches or exceeds the V64 if you max out its power limit.

Really? That's interesting, but maxing out wouldn't be reccomended unless OP has a good PSU.

Yeah, GPU power budget alone with 150% power limit is ~300w.

 

600w PSU should be fine though.

With V56, I would want at least 600w... and his 650w was only ~$10 more.

 

Also, better V56 deal here.  $310.

That Acer monitor appears to be an older one without a DisplayPort and without Freesync. Look at these two, both of which are 144 HZ with DisplayPorts and Freesync. The MSI has a curved VA panel (generally better color and contrast compared to a TN panel,) but may be out of budget. The AOC is g-sync compatible if you stay with that Nvidia card, but has Freesync if you don't.

 

Sorry, I forgot to add the link!
