Need advice on a budget system for a friend

Galion
 Share

He needs a upgrade but his budget is really tight, he plays smite, rocket league, pub g, LOL and overwatch and some mmorpgs. His budget is $400, I was thinking a raven ridge 2400G should do fine but not sure if it'll run at 1080 if I give him a old 950ti from my spares pile

Budget 1080p System (RGB) https://pcpartpicker.com/list/7v2Lmq - (this build comes with two free games with the RX 570)

I would go with the 2200G over the 2400G and just overclock it a bit.

Something like this should work out well:

No need for the 950ti? I chose the 2400G cos of his school work needs the cores for Adobe edits

If adobe can take advantage of hypethreading/SMT then go with that and drop the HDD.

Do you mean 750Ti?

If you were going to choose a Graphics Card, I would recommend going for a used GTX 970.

You can get them cheap for around $150 on eBay and the price for performance ratio is amazing.

They are very close to GTX 1060's.

However it will add to the overall cost, but it is worth it.

Yah, I would start with the 2400G and see where that puts him and if he need some extra horse power then give him the 750Ti but the 2400G is about 10% behind a 750Ti.
