First Build (for friend)

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Budget (including currency): $1200

Country: USA

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Modern Warfare, Rainbow Six, Minecraft, Rust

Other details (existing parts lists, whether any peripherals are needed, what you're upgrading from, when you're going to buy, what resolution and refresh rate you want to play at, etc): https://pcpartpicker.com/user/1nvasi0n/saved/nCWqpg

 

I included the parts list I already have in the link above. As far as I can see it's all compatible and is about the speed my buddy wants. Are there any spots I can cut costs to improve others? Or just overall save money? Thanks!

Your PCpartpicker list has a lot of parts that are out of stock and are not included in the price. Also somethings you're paying way too much the 1660Ti should be ~$300 not $600, and the case should be a lot cheaper for that price point like ~$70.

Few things I would change:

- You must get an SSD, even just a 240gb one for Windows and a few games.

- That's a really bad price for the R5 2600. Only buy it if you can save another $30-40. The 3600 is only $5 more and gives far better performance.

- I would suggest the 5600xt instead of the 1660ti. Both are good but I think the 5600xt has the edge.

for me it shows all parts with a price, it comes to $1213.78 and the case shows at $69

 

but yes a lot of parts are out of stock and have been for like the last month lol. I was lucky to snag the mobo that I did.

The build @Oswin came up with is significantly better, however I'd change out the PSU for a 550W unit, ditch the HDD and get a 1TB SSD.

Grab some items used. I got my G933 refurbished on eBay for $35. Came sealed in refurb packaging, works flawlessly.

You can probably find a better monitor on eBay as well. I bought a 32" 4k monitor with GSync for my roommate last year for $115.
