What do you guys think of this PC build? update


Recommended Posts

I need a new PC to replace my decade old PC but my budget is low unfortunately. I want it mostly to play my backlog games and hopefully to play WoW.

The video card barely meets the minimum requirements for WoW.  Not sure what else is in your backlog, but it will struggle to even run some last gen games, and forget about running at 1080p.  If you could dish out another $100 for a dedicated video card, then it would be OK.

 

Here's a machine that will play your games better, but it's worse in every other aspect.  It's about the cheapest thing you'll find:

But if you can spend a little more, here are some options:

@cusideabelincoln What do you think of this PC? Work owes me 40+ hours back pay but unfortunately I just don't know if or when I will ever receive it. It goes back to early April when new rotating managers started screwing up my paycheck.

It should do what you want, but the processor is a bit weak for gaming.  I believe you can find something better for that price.

I might possibly have an I5-6600, mobo, and a PSU that I could send to you if you go the building your own PC route.

The mobo does have the little plastic clip broken off the GPU slot, but I never had any problems with it for the couple of years I used it.

I tried building my last PC and ended up having to give it to a friend to fix because it wouldn't turn on. It took him a week to undo whatever I did. I do appreciate the offer I just want to order one already built to avoid that problem again.

No worries! Good luck on the new pre-built!

Would those be Radeon Fury cards? Hard to keep up with these graphic cards!

PC System Analysis for Star Citizen

Star Citizen is still in development but is currently one of the most demanding games on PC. Running on the high-end CryTek engine, Star Citizen's system requirements are very high. The sky is the limit here, so the better the graphics card and CPU you can throw at Star Citizen, the nicer it will look and the better the performance will be.The system requirements for Star Citizen are in a constant state of flux as development progresses. The latest high-end GeForce GTX 1000 Series or AMD's Radeon Fury graphics cards are needed to get Star Citizen looking its finest.

I just want to make sure I can play Star Citizen at 1080p at a decent frame rate whenever it comes out.

No Fury's there, but the Radeon 580 is close in performance, newer, and uses less power.  Cards named Vega are currently AMD's fastest available.

I was talking with a friend who said he would help me put a PC together so I will probably do that instead of buying prebuilt. What do you guys think of this build? Am I missing anything? Just going to save up a few months longer for this.

I would drop the Blu-Ray drive and extra case fans, and put the money into a better video card.   

I'll drop the Blu-Ray to get a better GPU. It gets hot in my room during the summer so I figured having extra cooling would be a good thing. Going to get Dustproof Cover Dust Filterhttps://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA50M2KR5792&cm_re=dust-_-9SIA50M2KR5792-_-Product to cut down the amount of dust it will collect hopefully.

Get faster memory.  3000 speed isn't much more than 2400.

 

AMD's Ryzen processors are better than an Intel Core i5 at the same price.  If you stick with Intel you should get an i7, as an i5 has no life left in it for future games.  However, i5's are perfectly fine for your backlog.  But with a Ryzen 5 processor you can get six cores/twelve threads or with a Ryzen 7 1700 you can get eight cores/16 threads for the same price as or less than an i5 four core/four thread processor.

 

Dust filters are a *thumbs up*  Some cases come with them built in.  Since I've been using them in my newest case it stays very clean on the inside, even if I let the filters get too dirty.  They just work, and as long as you have more fans than you need airflow won't be a problem.  

 

 

A GTX 1060 is a huge upgrade over a 1050 Ti.  It's too bad they actually cost more now than when they did at the time of their release 1.5 years ago.  But video card prices are finally dropping now that the mining craze has slowed down.  If you could actually wait a few months, perhaps if your current video card is actually still functional, that would be the more cost effective route to take.

Oh I'd jump on this 1TB Samsung SSD deal before it ends.  It's more expensive, but Samsung SSD will be much more reliable and faster than Silicon Power.

I have to wait until Friday.

Looks solid to me. My only comment is that we are finally on the cusp of a new generation of GPUs, so holding out for 60 days is probably a good idea.

I most likely have to wait at least 4-5 months but at least hopefully I would only have to switch out the GPU. I just haven't had a working PC in probably 3 years.
