Gaming Pc (For Friend)

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello, my friend is interested in buying a new gaming pc, he is not interested in overclocking before anyone asks.

He has a budget of £1300 but you can go probably up to £50 over.

He will be gaming a 1080p with low demanding games and also some triple A games as well.

He also wants RGB and I mean a decent amount - this is annoying as the builds I have made don't include RGB and if I was to remove parts and replace with rgb it turns to be over £1400.
I have managed to get 3800x and 2070 super or 3700x with a 2080, however, this is really close to going over £1400 when you add rgb fans for a example.

 

I would love to see you guys ideas and builds thank you.

1080p? Gaming? Why not 'standard' R5 3600 or cheap R5 1600AF? Add a good and reasonable mainboard, the 2070, 2x8gb ram and everything should be fine within the margins.

they won't benefit from a 3700x + at 1080p.

 

A 3600 would do fine.

For gaming he doesn't need a R7 3800x, poor budget utilization. a 3600 is best, does the the budget include peripherals?

How about something like this - you can change the mobo if you want, however, it is a nice mobo along with giving the option to upgrade to something like a R9 if u wanted to (even tho u don't need one for It- just recommend it) You also said you wanted some rgb so ram+mobo and fans should do it - you can buy an aftermarket cooler if you really want to get more rgb or even find a second hand rgb prism but I think there is no point.  This is one of my first post in a forum so any feed back would be nice, thank you and have a good day.

It's not. The VRM on it is so hot it'll throttle any ryzen 9 CPU.
