Really need some suggestions for a build.

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello, so recently had about 1500 saved up and was about to ask for some advice on Parts and start buying but, girlfriends car broke down so we had to take care of that. So now my budget is right at 1050. Should I wait to save up to 1500 again to have some wiggle room for upgrades or is there something decent I can build on in the future for what I have? I mostly play warframe, and pubg and hope to try out destiny2 whenever that comes out. Sorry for the wall of text. Lastly I'm in the U.S. For prices. Thank you guys in advance I really do appreciate it. 

 

Edit: I do not need any peripherals.

Nope! Should have mentioned that in my post I'll edit it. Thanks. 

Then you can have a decent PC for gaming for 1000

 

may I ask the resolution of your monitor?

Cool that's what I kind of figured. I have a 1080p monitor right now and am happy with it. Really just want to hit 60franes on the games I mentioned up top at decent settings at least. Thanks again.

1050 usd. And before taxes. Also I do not need anything but the pc itself. I have a keyboard monitor and mouse that will do me just fine for now. 

As for parts I don't have anything yet.

For 1080p this would be bit overkill but it fits the budget so why not

 

Drop to either a 1070 (though you'd only save max $70) or a 1060 and get either more RAM if you want or more storage (i.e 240GB SSD or more HDD)

oh I forgot a case, typical me forgetting stuff

 

well. there's Bitfenix Nova which has side panel and is really budget version

lots of Cooler Master cases can be found for cheap. NZXT S340 is a nice choice but it's almost 60-70

deepcool tesseract is often recommended and not so expensive and comes with different colors

some thermaltake versa too.

Sweet I'll check some of those out. I'm not to worried about having anything flashy. So after that all that is left is windows 10 right? That's usually right around 50? Can't remember.

here's what I got.

 

better cpu, lesser gpu. tho lets be honnest, a 1080 is not nessesarly needed for 1080p gaming with a single monitor.

 

im 100$ over your current budget. 

the inwin 303 case is great and looks awesome imo.

im not sure about the psu I put tho, I havn't been checking those out recently. but this one looks decent. perhaps take advice from someone else on that one.

if you want to get a legit copy it's around 80-90 

you can find "cheap" ones on kinguin and g2a for 30-40 but there's no gurantee it's safe/work (though majority claims it's fine)

you can have windows unactivated and leave out some features like background change, a watermark at the bottom right of the screen and no windows update
