1080p 144hz build, looking for feedback! ($1600 budget, cad)

Recommended Posts

Hi, looking for some feedback on this build. My goals are 1080p games @ 144hz. I'm fine with entry level peripherals and spent the bulk of my budget on performance. I opted for the Ryzen processor because it may be used for streaming / video rendering too. I absolutely do plan to overclock the build. This is a fresh build and I will only use 1 monitor. For a Canadian eh, bud?

Looks fine. I personally wouldn't get an MSI motherboard, but each to their own.

I'd also get a 5700 (XT), or 2060 Super.

If you can, spend a little more and get a quality keyboard.

Thanks @dizmo, the only reason I chose this motherboard is because it was the cheapest one from this reddit thread support flashing bios from USB (to support the R5 3600).

I know reddragon is meme tier. 🐉 If I can find a decent sale on boxing day I will opt for a better keeb!! I am now looking into the amd 5700 (xt) / 2060 s options.

5700XT is better and cheaper, if you plan on doing a lot of streaming, maybe opt for a Ryzen 3700x instead, the extra cores/threads will help with editing etc. (depending on the programs you use)

 

that said, for 1080p, you could even go with a 5500xt and get 50-80fps (depends on the game) on high/ultra and save yourself over 200 bucks. If you want a little overhead, go with a 2060 super or a 5700xt, if you want savings and get into manual overclocking, I'd go with the 5500XT.

 

Good luck.
