Building a budget gaming pc

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I'm currently building my brothers gaming PCs, I have 2 PCs to build with a budget of 1500USD$ each. The brother I'm currently building one for likes the color green and would not have access to a ethernet cable; So integrated wifi would be great. I would like to have a x570 motherboard (since my brother thinks he might upgrade in the future), 3600x AMD processor, and a GPU on the proformance level of a 2070. I will not be buying monitors or peripherals just the PC. But my brother would like to at least play in 2k without any problems. I am still relatively new to the PC building world with only two pc builds under my belt, so I'm just double checking if I'm possibly doing something that is foolish without knowing it. I appreciate any and all advice for a crowd that is more experienced than me. Thank you in advance!

do you already have a parts list? if so, share a pcpartpicker.com link

 


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 - The venerated Hyper 212 Evo (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)

 

EVGA G3 thread, BR/BT threadSeasonic Focus thread, S12II/M12II thread, Userbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions

A 2070 should be fine for 2k, unless you're going for 144hz. then i would consider getting a better gpu. Also i wouldn't get an x570 board for a 3600x. Just get a board with good power delivery and you should be fine for upgrading

a 1080, which is roughly equal to a 2070 in non RT titles, can play 1440p144hz just fine as long as youre willing to turn off stuff like ambient occlusion. Textures and shadows can be on high/ultra and still retain 120fps+ in most titles.

If you're not buying in the US, you shouldn't list in US prices. It's irrelevant.

This is the parts list i did for my last build. which was for another family member of mine. my goal is to give them only the essentials of a gaming pc with the budget i have.

Also, the reason why im getting a x570 is because my brother is thinking about upgrading it so im trying to give as much room for him to do what ever he want to it in the future. but im also not knowledgeable in the topic of "future proof" to be saying that with certainty.

Pretty decent build, but for a boot drive you can free up some budget by getting an Intel 660p or Sabrent Rocket which will deliver the same experience for a gaming PC. Also for that price, you can get an RX 5700 XT which would outperform that 2070.
