Looking for opinions and ratings on my PC

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello all,

I'm in the market for a new gaming PC and the Linus Tech Tips YouTube Channel helped a lot with figuring out what's important and what's not for a gaming pc.

Since I'm new to Pc building, I'm here to ask for your opinion on my current PC because I want to know how it compares to the norm of gaming PC's

 

Here are the specs:

 

CPU: Intel Core I5 3470 3.2ghz

Motherboard: Gigabyte H61M-S2PV

Memory: Dual Channel 12Gb DDR3 667Mhz (Kingston)

Graphics card: Nvidia Geforce GTX 750 TI

Storage: I have 3 Hard drives, all are around 300GB and somewhat full.

Screen/Display: LG Smart TV, resolution: 4096 x 2160 x 60Hrz

 

I know it struggles or even can not run most modern AAA games on the lowest setting possible. I mainly use it for watching movies and playing FIFA 20(lowest setting and still has low frames) and Game Dev Tycoon (runs as smooth as a baby's bottom).

 

My goal is have a computer that can comfortably run The Witcher 3, Doom 2016, Doom Eternal and cyberpunk 2077.

Maybe the one I already own is enough???

 

Regards,

Piegish

The games you've asked for is going to struggle a lot on the Witcher 3 and Cyberpunk, but Doom should be fine. What is your budget? I need your budget so I can put together a machine for you.

 

Mainly, as of right now, I feel like you should at least upgrade your GPU, maybe to a GTX 770, which can be found for $50 on eBay, and are pretty much comparable to a much slower GTX 1650. Should be able to run the games, but if you want more performance than that, then I recommend the GTX 1650  SUPER. The GTX 770 if for the ultimate budget upgrade.

P.S: Hope this helps!

New gaming PC's will blow the doors off of your PC, but you can still game with what you have. If you have a good PSU, you can upgrade your GPU to something more powerful, if you are on a low budget you can find an used AMD RX 470 or RX 480, or an NVIDIA GTX 780, 970 or 980 for cheap. I do not know about Cyber punk 2077, but a GPU upgrade will allow you to play most most games at a decent enough frame rate at 1080p and can get you by for a bit, then when you are ready you upgrade everything.

Also you may need to make some room on your hard drive.

an upgrade to a used i7 3770 or i7 2600 would be a good bump in performance, and quite a leap for modern games. They're also quite cheap usually.

upgrade options mention above, I'll doubly recommend the RX 470/570 as well.

this would probably be the most noticeable upgrade, going from only hard drives to a boot SSD. Really speeds up the whole system.


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 threadSeasonic Focus threadUserbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

4096 x 2160 x 60Hrz

 

Nvidia Geforce GTX 750 TI    <<< no

 

Memory: Dual Channel 12Gb DDR3 667Mhz (Kingston)   <<< big no ,  that means one channel is running at dual cahnnel and one single channel( or multiple ),     ,  u cant really get 12gb without running a bank single channel mode

 

also if u wanna be playing any of those games in 4k,  ul be needing somthing like a 5700xt / 2070super

I'd look at rx 570s-580's...that should be a very decent gpu upgrade and they can be found dirt cheap now.

If you are looking at used, then by all means, they should be a great upgrade. Keep in mind the Polaris architecture is almost 4 years old and they can run a bit toasty at times. Also if you are looking for the NVENC encoder and want to stream, then they won't be your best option. But, in theory, they are a good deal.

 

Another card for around the same price used is the GTX 1060 6GB. Pretty much the same performance, trading blows, plus NVENC.

 

If you are considering the RX 580, look for the 8GB version. And if you consider the GTX 1060, the 6GB edition.

 

Hope this helps!

 

P.S. If you don't want anything used and want RX 580 performance, get the 1650 SUPER.
