Looking for a decent GPU

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So I'd like to build my own Pc, but I don't plan to play anything fancy on it, my main reason to build a Pc is for video editing, though I still would like to play some light games like League and Minecraft, and be able to record/stream these games, but I'm not sure on what Gpu to get, I know Gpus won't help that much in video editing, I just would like one for some light games, here is the build link: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/HdZYFd , I changed the motherboard, Ram and added a Gpu from the original link, I picked an EVGA - GeForce GTX 750 Ti 2GB FTW ACX Video Card, as it's a cheaper GPU, but looks decent enough. If anyone has any suggestions let me know, I'm new to building a PC, so I need all the help I can get. Budget is $900 to $1000

Why an i5 though? Wouldn't an i7 be better for content creation? Also I do plan to use Sfm too, so

For what you need an i5 will do you fine. Also remember you can always swap it out for a 7700 in the future if you wanted the extra horsepower, but for the moment an i5 is a good starting point.

Well I will go with a different approach then the most here, since you want the computer to be lasting longer and manage multitasking for streaming etc. I have made a quick build from the site you were using, and this is what I would have built for that type of usage you want, but I changed out the 750 TI for a GTX 1060 because it is a huge upgrade graphic wise. The extra $50 will give you a card that is about 200% better, the Ryzen R5 1600 is more a stronger “workbench” for you then the i7 6700. I changed the PSU because you want a better quality on it and better for cable management, and cases are important even if many people forget to tell you. https://pcpartpicker.com/list/3FWhcc this is the setup I did it will be a bit over the budget by $38, but you will be a lot better with this setup for the next 3 years.
