Hi everyone~ I have a notebook, Acer Aspire 4750G bought way back 2012. I started playing DOTA2 last year (2017) because I have friends playing that game. With intel i3 2310 2.10GHz and Nvidia GeForce GT 540M, I was able to play DOTA2 in lowest settings 30fps. I was also using USB keyboard and mouse.
I just wanted to play DOTA2 in 1080p high settings. So I decided to buy a packaged gaming pc but I cant afford the prices. I found some cheap gaming pc builds which inspired me to just build myself a gaming pc.
Here are the parts that I got.
With Built-in Vega 8 graphics, this Ryzen 3 2200G is enough to play DOTA2 in highest 1080p. I will upgrade and buy graphics card RX 580 or GTX 1060 Ti when the prices drop.
I was worried I'm gonna have compatibility issues with my APU and this Motherboard, but I was lucky that I found a guy to update it for free. It also supports dual memory channel which is important because I'm only using the integrated Vega 8 Graphics.
This RAM only performs 2133Mhz with my build, but I don't have any problems with it. I'm planning to buy another 2x4Gb sticks so I will have 16Gbs RAM but I don't think I need it.
This 240GB SSD is enough to install some programs and games. It is performing well, maybe I will need a Hard disk in future backups.
I like this simple case design with slots for 3 fans.
This 600W 80+ PSU will be good enough for my future upgrade if ever I get a Graphics card and a sound card.
Not so quiet, not so loud fans. Not bad.
I included this monitor for my build so you can see the total price. 1920x1080p 60hz 5ms, good enough for gaming. 22" LED monitor with built-in speakers and is only CAD $119.99. I am using HDMI to connect because my motherboard doesn't have a VGA port. I am wondering If using DVI will give me better video quality and faster response.
