Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Ok I'm not In a rush to get a pc. My main purpose is to play video games with my friends. I would like to stream/record and other basic content creation stuff. Currently i just have some old laptop which cant even run my online classes with my home work open I'm currently saving up money and my budget is about 800 dollars. I planned to keep saving and get the 3070 around this time NEXT year. Im OK with buying used parts I just don't want any really old parts since I want them to last. What do you think i should do,  wait and save up, buy an used 2070 or something ( not sure how much i should spend on those), or do you have any other ideas.

Do you want anything specific? Like a smaller form factor or something?

Edit: Also we need to take shipping prices into consideration

Not really i was actually not looking for a small factor. I've made pc partpicker lists with the 3070 that came up to about 1100-1200 with a r7 2700x (open box for 200). my plan was a white case but not really mandatory just that my wall is light blue so black wouldht go well

I don't think you can fit a 2070 build that won't bottleneck the gpu under 800$. At least I can't

Also I assumed you are going 4K because of the 2070. Am I correct?

1440p 144hz (Just realized If i go for a 2070 it will be 1080 p 144hz) if i wait and get a 3070 later it will be 1440 p or 4k in the future

a decently priced build that would allow for good upgradability in the future:

 

if you were to buy used, id buy like this (prices based on what i see on various online marketplaces, shipping included):

 

r5 3600 for ~150

b450/b550: 100-120

2070 super for 350-400, or get a placeholder card and wait for 3070

buy case new or find a local deal on one, they cost a shit ton to ship. mesh fronted cases preferable, ~50-100

buy psu, ram, and ssd new unless youre comfortable with buying them used, ~200

 

thatd be roughly the same price as above, plus no taxes. you could go ahead and get everything except a card, and pick up a 1660 super/1070 or something for under 200 to use while you wait on a 3070
