I think I know, but do I really??

Hello all,

 

This is my first go at things and I’m still a little ways from purchasing but I did some research and watch some videos. Here is what I came up with. 

 

-budget: 1300$ max

-used mainly for videos games like ‘league of legends’ and ‘smite’ upon others. Along with some productivity. I am not an intensive gamer but I would like to run 60 frames at 1080p. 

-is this a balanced build?/I’m aware there is always some bottleneck but where might be the most severe places?

-where might I improve, or what is not nessassry/downgrable.

-any other suggestions or tips, useful websites. 

 

-build is from part picker 

 

-Thank you!

I would change the graphics card for an RX 580 8GB or a GTX 1060 6GB...other than that it looks great.

I’d go with an RX 580, but honestly you’d be fine with a 1050 Ti if all you want to play is smite and LoL and other such non-intensive titles. Use the stock CPU cooler, unless you plan on overclocking (if you do, I’d recommend a better cooler). The rest of it is solid. You can always add a HDD later if you need more storage. The PSU is a bit overkill, but it won’t hurt. It’s also a very high quality unit. If you want something a bit cheaper, a CX550M should be more than enough

Profit, if you can cheat your clients with 3GB less for $xx less (canada it's as little as $50 difference) most people won't see the 3GB less they'll see the $xx less first and choose that. It's a scummy move in every situation, including those who sell them. Just because Nvidia released a 3GB version spec doesn't mean you should follow suit, unless it's in your contract then imo you should make the 3GB more prominent, because that's just downright dirty.

What others? Other low resource games or other games in general like Tomb Raider??? What ever you do don't buy the 3GB of the 1060...

Well, at the time most games did not need 3GB of VRAM, and of course Nvidia wanted to continue their sales of the 1060 card plus they were probably sitting on a decent stock pile of poorly binned P106s so they probably decide to release this to improve their bottom line and  better compete with the RX 470/480 4GB. Honestly the only thing wrong with it is that they decided to call it "GTX1060 3GB" instead of something like GTX 1060 light, or something like that.

With a $100 budget grace (assuming no taxes included) I would say they could afford a better unit, no? If you where to increase the GPU budget by $100 CAD you could easily get a 1060 6GB or 8GB version.

 

Better yet why not a 570 8GB?

My bad, didn’t notice it was a 4GB version. I’d still take an RX 580 4GB over any of those mentioned (except the 1060 6GB). An 8 GB model should be $20 more at the most. (Also, 1060 doesn’t come in 8GB...)

Weirdly (quickly using Canada Computers) it's $400 give or take $30-50... Not saying it's the best place for pricing but I think it's because they are technically old and outdated.

 

https://www.canadacomputers.com/index.php?cPath=43_1200&sf=:1_1,3_49,3_50,5_2

 

So if they can I would actually suggest picking up the 570 8GB since it can be had for less than $200 w/o MiR (never works in Canada it seems w/o multiple resend requests), and it's from a reputable company. Don't think I've used Sapphire before I think I had a HIM 270 (still have the box, just can't look for it right now), and I know I would have been able to clock enough out of it to turn it into the 270x form which seems like the 570 and 580 are similar situation. Never needed to tho.

 

Game FPS is actually very close to the 1060 6GB depending on the game too by the looks of things. Once again we need to know the other games they play, but any card mentioned here including the yukky 1060 3GB would be able to handle the 2 mentioned.

@Egg-Roll it looks like the cheapest 8GB card on pcpartpicker is $285. A used 970/980/Fury is still as good or better than all of these options and around the sameness price depending, but that’s another story.

Ah ok, but the cost to performance isn't there. If they want to get it and can pick up a 580 8gb for under $300 by all means go for it, but if they want a best buck scenario I think the 570 for $200 would be the best then again I've not looked very hard and luckily spotted the deal on CC.

 

Obviously older top tier cards used would be best option but the power consumption on them is higher which means a higher electricity bill, by how much depends where they live and how much they use it.

easy :)

you're in Canada...and the deal right now to me is this card here:

https://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814131720&nm_mc=AFC-C8JunctionCA&cm_mmc=AFC-C8JunctionCA-_-na-_-na-_-na&AID=10592396&PID=3938566&utm_medium=affiliates&utm_source=afc-PCPartPicker%2C+LLC&cjevent=7b44bbacff4e11e880dd00270a240611

 

Why? because it's a very good performing card for the price, it has a lot of memory, it will last a long time...it will age a lot better than a 1060 with 3GB of VRAM...and bonus on top it comes with 2 free games: '' This coupon code is redeemable for download codes for your choice of two of the following games free: Tom Clancy's The Division 2, Resident Evil 2, Devil May Cry 5'' (make sure to add the AMD gift to the cart to receive the offer.)

They both will run about the same in games, so it really comes down to personal taste, Red or Green. Equally depending on the engine and how the game is made some games will work better on one card manufacture better than the other tho not usually by many fps.

Please don't get this specific card, it's one company I've never really cared for... It might be cheap but cheap isn't always good, in fact I'm surprised they are still around... If the games offered are not games one will ever play or is not offered by AMD or top tier brand, avoid.

son, you have no idea what you're talking about...power color makes very very good AMD cards, and this is a good one, it's not cheaply built, it's just priced well. ;)

It's not the highest end card, but it gets the job done...aesteticaly it's nothing fancy, but again, fits any build and gets the job done.

Perhaps, but I still wouldn't trust it :P Like I said I'm surprised they still exist.

That said I would still go with a different brand like MSI or EVGA.

I started out with the CPU, board, RAM, SSD and PSU decided (what I expect a $1200-1500 build to have)

 

Then got stuck in choosing graphics card. 1070 doesnt fit in the budget without some serious price cuts on other parts, so not really worth it. Then I saw the RX 580s and 1060 6gb, which are like 25% to 40% more expensive for 10-15% extra performance. That's why I ended up settling with an RX 570 8GB (even though 8GB here isnt really useful, it happens to be cheaper than other 4GB cards)

 

With the core parts settled and plenty of budget left, I put the budget on other parts (which you can reuse as much as you want to as upgrades to the CPU or GPU or motherboard don't replace them), which includes the CPU cooler, case and fans.

RX 570 is cheaper...but the one you selected the ARMOR from MSI is aweful...the cooler on this thing is about the thickness of 3 paper sheet and those cards are stupid loud and run stupid hot :)

i'm sure you can find a better one ;)

 

EDIT: Actually...i did some shopping and the only 8GB RX 570 thast is not a single slot piece of shit MSI armor, cost the same as the RX 580 red dragon...so, i won :) This is the cheapest RX 570 that i would consider buying personaly, but i would much rather have the 8GB 580 for 1$ less.

Dual fan $310 MSI.

 

Tho truth be told a single fan will work fine with the proper airflow. I've never had a issue.

RX 570 is cheaper...but the one you selected the ARMOR from MSI is aweful...the cooler on this thing is about the thickness of 3 paper sheet and those cards are stupid loud and run stupid hot :)

i'm sure you can find a better one ;)

 

Worlds not perfect, once again proper airflow will result in lower temperatures all around including less fan noise.

NO NO NO NO NO and NO...

Go read reviews for this card...it's AWEFUL...the cooler weight NOTHING and it's so thin it's not even funny there is barely 1$ worth of aluminum on this thing...for real...go check reviews the red dragon shit all over this crap MSI model...i swear to you.

 

Also you're at 310$ and AMAZON in canada charge a lot more in tax than newegg..so it's quite abit more expansive, for a much worse card....MUCH MUCH worse...don't go by brand...go by product quality for a second...don,t get me wrong i LOVE MSI cards...i have their top end 1080ti and it's amazing...but their low end models are some of the worst.

 

GUYS, you won't beat me at this game.
