You want to have 2 monitors no matter how wide one is. For me 4K is not as good as having a 21:9 aspect ratio, even if you want a 4K monitor you can get lower end 4K monitors and get 2 for slightly more. Here you have a 1080p 16;9 monitor and a 1080p 21:9 monitor

http://www.ebay.com/itm/like/162649996976?chn=ps&dispItem=1 There is a 1080p monitor for cheap, I would get it as a second monitor.

Yep. Also you might wanna get a 1080p monitor, there is an HP one here on PCPP for $90, for me after you go dual monitor for productivity, you cannot go back, and there are cheap VESA wall mounts ($10) for most monitor sizes on Monoprice.

The monitor you gave was alright, the one I gave, you probably wanna do 1440p gaming on it though 4K media consumption will be alright on 4K

Well for first thing it is using Skylake and not Kaby Lake, And the R5 1600 offers another 2 cores and the 1060 3GB performs better than the 4 GB 1050 TI

With a 250 GB SSD, 1060 and 16 GB RAM with a R3 1300X this might be able to perform 1080p. The monitor, keyboard and mouse with SSD and OS was hard to fit into $900 so, its barely tippin that at $906.38. Had to cheap out on Mouse and Keyboard https://pcpartpicker.com/list/2Tzp6X

There are laptops that use full desktop CPUs, these are interesting and can be fun to play around with if you got a decent wad of cash. Otherwise for laptops I would consider a Dell Latitude here : http://www.dell.com/en-us/shop/dell-laptops/inspiron-15-7000-gaming/spd/inspiron-15-7567-laptop And another laptop that might be good is a Razer Blade Additionally I would consider an older Macbook Pro for cheap

https://au.pcpartpicker.com/list/26cHcc The australian PC market isnt to great but I did manage something that can probably pull off high settings 60 FPS on the ultrawide.

In the situation I would be using it in, the Video card you provided is no where good enough, the IGPU of the G3950 being better having the same IGPU as the G4560. It can stream 4K footage from YouTube and Netflix

For a media center PC the IGPU is enough and the Mobo comes with the built in Kaby Lake BIOS update.

A bottom line LGA1151 B250M mobo would do, most nowadays include M.2 support. Also I meant to type 7600 no K.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "I’m finally making the switch from Xbox to PC! How does this first time build look? Should I change anything?"

  • 29 months ago
  • 1 point

Some parts are missing prices So ill fix it. If your making the change from Xbox to PC, why would you want MAX 1080p at 120 FPS? Xbox One S plays I think medium 30-45 fps at 1080p Also, the GPU and CPU AND RAM market RN is way to expensive, i'd say wait till December to see if the prices come back down. Building on the AU version of PCPP I am seeing much much higher prices than USA prices, so definitely wait for prices to come down in the AU or move to the US to save $3000 on PC parts :p. ALSO I found multiple AU Ultrawides 1080p for cheap so, one is in here BUT , here is the fixed version https://au.pcpartpicker.com/list/WKp2Ps $2261 in AU and $1600 in the US

Ive read the I5 7600k is a tad better than the R5 1600 and the mobo for it would be cheaper

https://pcpartpicker.com/list/Tpbhf8 This is a BETTER Cheaper, Kaby Lake system that will save you $100 and will do you better. The HD 610 IGPU is better than a 8400 GS

Seems great though now you probably want to upgrade to the GT 1030 since its the only GT card to not be known notoriously for being horrible

Go for something like a 750 TI, I guess.
