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

-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 5 days ago

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

Here's an expert opinion from an experienced builder. You'd be better off tuning your needs because good settings with 80fps is not very achievable with a $800 budget especially when you're saying you don't want a bottleneck. My build would be $800 if it didn't include the monitor and keyboard in the build. I recommend a $900 budget if you're looking for specific quality of build. And if you don't have a HDD with windows 10 already, then that's another $100 to slap on to buy windows 10.

EDIT: Okay after re-reading your post I think I misjudged what you're saying. But in general if you want a very good and consistent build then $1000 is a good budget for a good computer.

This is basically what I'd recommend as well.

Zerk2012 1 Build 1 point 5 days 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

mr_cool998 2 Builds 1 point 4 days ago

They're both equal in terms of performance however in some games one does better than the other and vice versa

mr_cool998 2 Builds 0 points 5 days ago

The only problem with your build is that you cheaped out on the PSU which is something you should never do with a build.

Zerk2012 1 Build 1 point 5 days ago

Nothing wrong with that power supply at all.

mr_cool998 2 Builds -1 points 5 days ago

It's not a very future-proof PSU especially with a 1060 and 3000MHz RAM in there as well. Would be better off having at least 550W for a PSU especially if the OP is planning on upgrading it in the future. Just to add on as well, Ryzen processors rely more on higher speed RAM than Intel processors. So having the RAM overclocked is going to be necessary for better system performance. And you're gonna need a good PSU for anything overclocking. I know he mentioned not overclocking in his post, but for the RAM it's going to be a necessity.

Zerk2012 1 Build 1 point 5 days ago

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.

mr_cool998 2 Builds -1 points 5 days ago

Your last and only build was from almost 3 years ago how does that show you're credible in what you're talking about? I know exactly what I'm talking about considering I spend hours a day in the forums helping people with their builds.

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

This doesn't really make you look that good

And having a bronze efficiency also means your PSU is not going to last a very long time. Good luck reusing that thing in a future build when it's not going to be able to output enough wattage for a future build, I know what I'm talking about because I used to have one and it wouldn't work with a 1070. Let's not forget it's not hard to find a cheaper version of the 580 to use on the build. Both cards are very even in terms of performance so your whole claim of your build having better gaming performance is a flat out lie

vagabond139 5 Builds 1 point 5 days ago

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

Andrewp232 1 point 4 days ago

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.
