Hey guys I wanted to build a PC strong enough to run Star Citizen on High. Also not trying to break my bank.
PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant
I wouldn't go with AMD at this price point...
What do you mean?
get an i5 and ditch the k70 and you only need 8gb of ram, get a 7200 rpm hdd
An i5 is not appropriate for $1500 if an 8 core AMD is not not appropriate.
He's using this PC for gaming, though. An i5 will be more than enough. Unless he's doing video editing or using programs that take advantage of hyperthreading an i7 isn't necessary.
Odd are this pc will have trouble because as of now the 2 modules released can barely run on these parts. Scott Manley has a similar rig same cpu and I believe same gpu.
Different build, higher-performing concept with a lot of fat cut off - :
