First PC Build

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey guys,

I'm trying to build a gaming pc for light gaming and streaming. I have a budget of about 850 for just the PC. I want to play games like Rainbow Six Siege at 1080p and 60fps. I built this on pc parts picker and wanted a second opinion on it from people who know more than me. any help is appreciated! Thanks!

$100 is about what a 1TB SSD would run you, so an $85 SSD with only 500GB is hard to justify. This would serve a lot better.

Also the RX 580 matches the 1650 super in performance, so if you spy either for cheaper, choose whichever costs less.

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)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus threadUserbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

Overall seems like a decent build. If you want pure gaming performance I would recommend getting a Ryzen 1600 AF (basically the same as a 2600 but for $85) and a more powerful graphics card. You may also want to consider a stronger psu if you go that route.

The PSU will do fine, even with a Vega 64 and high end i7.... the PSU is not the concern.

If you cheapen out some items, you can fit a RX 5600XT relatively well.
