Help me build/buy the cheapest PC for Destiny 2

 Share

Hello, I am looking at building or buying a new PC in the next few months. My current computer has served me well for 3 years.

 

My current specs:

Alienware Alpha R1 i3 model

4th generation i3

Nvidia GeForce 860M

8GB DDR3L RAM

 

I recently have tried some new games on my computer. Here are some FPS values/settings

 

Fallout 4: around 50-60fps 1080p lowest

Destiny 2: 40-50 fps 720p lowest

Star Wars Battlefront 2 (2017): 50-60fps 900p low

Titanfall 2: 60fps 720p low

Dolphin Emulator: 720p full speed

PCSX2: 720p full speed

 

These are decent framerates and are comperable to console framerates. However, these are starting to get dangerously close to unplayable framerates. My computer also struggles running Windows 8.1 nowadays, even with a new hard drive and optimization. The old i3 just isn't what it used to be.

 

I'd like to be able to play those games better than I do now, especially Destiny 2. I'd be very happy running that game at 1080p medium settings with an average of 60fps (in most areas).

 

Budget/What I'd like:

 

I'd like to pay the least amount of money possible in order to run these games with decent quality settings. I'd like to pay the least possible amount, but maximum amount is $500. Do not worry about peripherals or windows. I have an old 250Gb hard drive that I know little of the quality, but it is functional as far as I know and I can use it if need be, but I'd prefer a new one. Note I am not building this PC right now, so if there are new parts coming out soon those can be mentioned. I just need a reference point to see how little I can spend for how much I'll get. It doesn't have to be new, it may be used. However, a computer with a good upgrade path is ideal.

With the current ram prices and gpu prices thats not possible

 

You would at least need a:

I3 8100 4C4T

8GB 2666 ram

H310/B360 mobo (Q1 2018)

GTX 1050 TI / Rx 570

A GOOD 550 watt psu

shitty case of choice

and that would set you back 600/700$

 

 

Let's agree to disagree
