Hey guys, can you make a new gaming set up for me (with monitor and keyboard, no mouse or headphones)

I want to be able to run most games with decent settings at over 80 fps.

-800$? -500$? with compatible parts (no bottle neck)

Preferably working good without overclocking cough looks sexy Thanks!

80 seems oddly specific

Zerk2012 1 Build 2 points 2 months ago

900 bucks beats the performance of both builds in most games with a larger SSD.

whats the difference between the gtx 1060 6 gb and rx 580 8 gb. I heard that the rx is better than the gtx in this scenario

Nothing wrong with that power supply at all.

LoL you must have no clue if your talking about using watts to overclock memory.

That build will use about 50% of the power supply under full load.

My build is better for gaming performance and I included a larger SSD so a few games can be loaded on it.

Not to say anything about the case I picked with proper cooling instead of a case that comes with a single fan like the one you chose.

RAM draws a stupidly low amount of power. Wattage is not a issue when it comes to overclocking it.

Also mr_cool998, people are always writing about Ryzen and RAM speeds. And while there is a valid point to be had (RAM speeds affect ryzen more than intel), most people I know who went from 2400-->3000 or 2666-->3200 saw 1-3fps boost in most games they played. I know this isn't a consensus since it was just amongst my friends, but it tends to get exaggerated.

This is how I would go, sadly still over budget but you get a well rounded build with all the parts and performance you are after.

-800$? -500$? with compatible parts (no bottle neck)

Bottlenecking all depends on the game and graphical settings. There is not a blanket answer to this and any CPU can bottleneck any GPU under the right circumstances.

Also it is 100% meaningless to even think about provided you chose your parts right and get what you want. You should chose the CPU for the FPS you want and the GPU(s) for the graphical performance you want. If you are happy with what you get and meet your goals then why worry about something that is not impacting you?

Im guessing youre from the usa, i think this build should fulfill the "decent settings" at over 80 fps: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/tK8yNQ I tried to get it as close as possible to 800$, but i think with the operating system it will cost around 900$.

Does the motherboard have wifi capabilities, or should I buy a wifi adapter.

Davideko 1 point 2 months ago

this motherboard doesnt have onboard wifi, so you will need to buy a wifi adapter

Zerk2012 1 Build 1 point 2 months ago

with compatible parts (no bottle neck

That is 100%impossible, their never been a PC built without a bottleneck.

For the experienced builders only their not a lot of them on this site but their a lot of won't to be builders.

This is basically what I'd recommend as well.
