Think this is a resonable spec / pc?

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

After trying Beta, ive convinced myself to get  a new / used pc - my laptop is ~6years old and no good for gaming anymore.

As the GPU prices are skewed because of crypto mining I think i'll probably go used.

I havn't built a system since c2d processes were out so im abit out of the loop but after doing a little research on this pc it seems like a reasonable price to me, was wondering if some of you guys could confirm or maybe suggest otherwise.

Im looking to get >100fps stable on Battalian (I have yet to experience > 60fps in my life so this is my goal for the pc). I understand the monitor that comes with it may limit it 75fps, but will look to be using this as a secondary monitor once I save up for a 144hz monitor. (or should i ditch the included monitor as it an additional £50.00?)

With monitor = £600/ 680.53 / $834.00

Excluding monitor = £550/ 623.82 / $765.00

Specifications:

Should be fine i think. Maybe u could overclock the cpu a bit.

I'm playing with a Ryzen 1600 overclocked to 3.8 and a 1070

And basically have 200 fps all the time, sometimes a drop to 170. I think everything was on ultra.

Dno how much the pricegap is to a 1070 for you, but i can recommend it. But i guess the difference won't be 100 fps so basically i would say 100 fps must work for you. But basically your screen will not use anymore then 60.

Yeah I realize the monitor may cap it but will be looking to add a new one as my primary. the price of a 1070 atm is too much at the moment , it may even continue to rise unfortunately. I'm a bit unsure of the Mobo/PSU they seem like basic components ?

 

I will also have to take into consideration warranty on used parts.

best to check reviews regarding the motherboard. About PSU when I bought my pc I read a lot about it. Like it was better not to buy a cheap one because it can break the whole pc and it is. there to last. But yeah a lot of people use a cheap cpu. I think this one is better I have this one aswell:

If you're UK based, it may be worth checking out some builds on https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/.

There's some good entry level gaming builds that can be done for much less than £870 and reap similar results. Plus, you can check your build compatibility too.

Some examples here: https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/builds/#X=0,79945&c=13&g=120 

Don't forget you may have to get a new windows 10 key too! Hope this helps.

Thanks. yeah I started looking into pcpartpicker and logical increments. Seems like some pre-builts are cheaper too due to the whole mining craze.

If you do not need intel features such as vt-d or integrated graphics I would go with a ryzen atm

Yeah I know, single threaded performance is not that good on ryzen compared to intel BUT since clock speeds are not going up much anyway in the near future and cpu vendors will focus on more multithreading performance, so will software developers.

So many game engines will get optimized for more and more cores so ryzen is a top bet in that direction.

this is a above your budget though. Mainly because of the gpu. (this thing is more than 100 Pounds over the recommended price from AMD... thanks mining)

Oh, and RAM is expensive aswell :/
