Good, though I've heard the cooler is terrible on the Armour OC cards. 

Hello,

 

First off I want to thank you for your help up front!

 

I would like to build a PC and be able to play these games below.  I don't want to spend more than $800 on a box, $200 on a monitor if I have to.  If possible I want to be able to record and to expand my hardware down the line.  I will be reusing my Kingston V300 240GB SSD for Windows but would like a data drive.  I own windows as well.

 

Games are:

  • Forza Horizon 3
  • GTA V
  • American and Euro Truck Sims
  • Minecraft w/ shaders
  • Tekkit Classic
  • Battlefield 1

Then see my first list, it's the same thing with an RX580. And good thing you can wait, hopefully the mining craze will have died by August.

Good, though I've heard the cooler is terrible on the Armour OC cards.

its not though... I mean, its not as good as other coolers on more premium cards, sure.... but its not "terrible" by any means.

Games are:

  • Forza Horizon 3
  • GTA V
  • American and Euro Truck Sims
  • Minecraft w/ shaders
  • Tekkit Classic
  • Battlefield 1

 

Based on your game list this is the sort of build you should be after: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/tFgtFd

 

that build is similar in many regards to your earlier mentioned one, and your earlier one is fine, although i would definitely recommend a motherboard which doesn't skimp out on the features. the PC MATE board in my build there comes with 7.1 audio, USB C, and stuff like that which your Asus board lacks. Also for your choice of monitor it would probably be a good idea to find something with freesync if you're getting an AMD card. you may or may not make use of it, but its a good feature to have which doesn't really cost anything.

Update: Build completed with suggested monitor added in: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/q4JfZ8

 

there are certainly cheaper freesync panels out there.... but this one is IPS, 27", curved, and has a good response time. its up to you whether or not you feel those are good features to invest in. GL with the build! :D
