1200CAD Build Without Peripherals

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi everyone, long time follower but first time posting here!

 

I have somehow acquired an LG 34UC79G-B Monitor and now I need a gaming computer to connect to it. My budget is around in 1200 with tax in Canadian Dollars and this is just for the computer and nothing else. 

 

I am looking to play Battlefield with this rig and any other games should be easy if it can run Battlefield at high resolution.

 

Thanks!

Wait for Black Friday, ask and build then.

If you wait for black friday and buy similar parts then you should be able to get the same thing for around 1200. Also feel free to pick a different case based on personal preference, and if you want a smaller build swap the Tomahawk max for a Mortar max.

Welcome to the forum.

Thanks!

 

I read some of the other posts regarding Black Friday, if it means saving only 50 or 60 bucks, I would rather get it done now.

Thanks a lot! I might swap the 16gb ram for 8 and add an SSD rather than a hard drive. 

 

Again thanks for the input!

It's not so much about saving $60, you can get significantly better components for the same price, or you could save several hundreds.

All of the builds I've done on Black Friday have saved at least $400.

Sounds good, although keep in mind that ryzen benefits quite a lot from having Dual channel memory, so unless you're planning on adding another 8gb soon go for 2x4gb sticks. Also I would defo recommend 16gb, I regularly surpass 8gb ram usage when gaming.

Yep, for example I ended up with a ryzen 5 2600x, 1070ti and a much better motherboard and PSU instead of a 2600 and 1060, for the same price thanks to black friday deals. It's worth the wait.
