What's a complete build? Is that including monitor/keyboard/mouse and operating system? Let me know and I can put something together for you.

Okay. So, this is pushing the budget and it is a bit over if you don't account for the rebates that you can get back after receiving them. If the extra $100 doesn't work, I can make some further adjustments.

  • R5 2600. Probably overkill for your needs but it's a great CPU with a capability of doing light editing or streaming if you ever wanted to. If you need to lessen the cost, you could opt for the R3 2200G which is a solid quad-core CPU and would be decent for gaming.

  • 16GB of RAM.

  • 500GB SSD + 2TB HDD. Should last for a while. To lessen cost, you can also do a 250GB SSD and a 1TB HDD.

  • GTX 1070. More than capable of maxing out every game and still getting 1080p60 or at lower details, you should get fairly close to running 100+ FPS with a high refresh rate monitor. If you're only interested in 1080p60, a GTX 1060 will do.

  • I included a 144hz monitor. It's one of the cheapest available but you can also do a regular 60hz monitor which should save you a good amount of money.

Will i need a cooling fan for the processor ?

EnergeticTk 1 Build 1 point 1 month ago

No, the r 2600 comes with its own stock cooler.

Sinsure 1 point 1 month ago

The 2xxx series ryzen comes with a more then capable air cooler stock if ur not going for moderate to heavy OC.

ProbablyProdigy 3 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

As Sinsure mentioned, it will come with one that will be more sufficient for stock speeds and even a mild overclock if you wanted.

Wow, nice build, didnt think all this could "fit" in a 1300 budget

ProbablyProdigy 3 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

Haha thanks. I was originally trying to squeeze in a 2070 but figured that was overkill anyways.

EnergeticTk 1 Build 1 point 1 month ago

Yeah, but what about the 2060?

julio_noya 1 point 1 month ago

can you make me a build around 1300 without a monitor keyoard or a mouse.?
