Guide

Entry Level AMD Gaming Build

Description

CPU

Our CPU of choice is the Ryzen 3 2200G. This CPU is inexpensive but still packs a punch with its 4 cores and 3.7 GHz turbo frequency. It also has an impressive integrated GPU, which will allow you to play lower demand games passably, including Fortnite.

The Ryzen 3 2200G includes a good stock cooler, so a 3rd-party cooler isn't necessary.

Motherboard

We're using a parametric filter to constantly select the best-priced motherboard while meeting selected criteria. In this case, we are filtering for mATX B450 chipsets, which will allow us to overclock the CPU without breaking the bank. The compatibility engine will filter out anything not compatible with the build.

Memory

For this build and most machines outside of the top end enthusiast realm we opted to go with 8GB of DDR4 memory. The parametric filter finds the best price on 8GB kits of memory that are within AMD’s recommended specifications. We've limited it to DDR4-2800 to DDR4-3200 as Ryzen CPUs scale well with higher frequency memory.

Storage

We're also using a parametric filter to select the best priced SSD available that is at least 240GB. The SSD can be used for your OS and a handful of games. Additionally, we're using a parametric filter to select the best-priced 1TB drive. Everyone's needs are different, so feel free to increase capacities or remove a drive to fit yours.

GPU

We have set a parametric filter for the best-priced Radeon RX 570, which will let you play any popular game available today, including Fortnite, PUBG, and Apex Legends.

Case

The Cooler Master MasterBox Q300L is an mATX mini tower case with 2x front panel USB 3.0 Gen 1 ports and fits full-size graphics cards without issue. It provides several cable management holes and a couple patterned magnetic dust filters for easy removal and cleaning. If you so wish, you can also move the I/O panel to up to six different locations on the case.

PSU

For the PSU, we're using a parametric selection of a few well-reviewed semi-modular and modular units, which are all rated for good power efficiency and can provide plenty of power for this build.

I have a 10yr old who is interested in gaming and wants to have a gaming computer. Is this a good starter computer for a 10yr old? If he likes it is it easy to add to this and make it bigger? Right now he is in the fortnight craze and Minecraft. Is this a good choice for playing these games? Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated as a parent I’m ver hesitant about getting him his own computer with all that is out there that could potentially be hurtful to him.

  • 8 months ago

Yes, this pc plays fortnite and minecraft smoothly and is a very good chice for playing these games (it is actually a bit overkill).

  • 8 months ago
  • 3 points

Yes this is a bit overkill for him. You easily can instead of a 2200g with rx 570 use a r5 2400g and FORTNITE and Minecraft will run easily at med on FORTNITE and obviously maxed out in Minecraft

  • 7 months ago
  • 3 points

I think fortnight sucks, but yes this will work. Oh, and for all the people who say it is overkill, read this: He's going to be playing FortNite when he first gets it, he might start playing more graphic games in the future like PUBG, Exodous, APEX Legends, etc. Also, as he gets updates, adds add-ons, fills up his steam library, you and your son is gonna wish he had gotten something better.

  • 7 months ago

I'm thinking about getting this PC for myself, but not for FortNite, for PUBG, CS:GO, and maybe APEX Legends, but APEX Legends is like FortNite, people only like it because it's popular.

I would get a Ryzen 5 1600 or maybe even a Ryzen 7 1700, they will cost you a little bit more but they are great CPU's and would allow future upgradability

It would be fine for your kid if he is trying to play 1080p but anything over that you can't do much without it looking horrible and upgrading would be easy if you have the money

  • 8 months ago

2200g actually has a nice integrated gpu, if you want to save a few bucks. But if you want to upgrade in the future, I would recommend getting a 2400g, which is more powerful cpu and can be paired with something like a rx 580 or gtx 1660ti in the future. Everything else in this guide is good enough for a system like that. With the integrated graphics on lower settings he should be fine, but would reccomend upgrading in future to run newer (and more demanding) games.

I love your choice of parts but I'd add at least one extra case fan as the thermals of the case aren't the best. This fan is about $10 and would allow you to overclock the GPU to a more stable clock with the same thermals.
https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835186033 Or even this one for the same price to keep with the same blue theme of the case. http://www.coolermaster.com/cooling/case-fan/sickleflow-120-2000rpm-red-led/

Looks like someone watches BitWit. He did basically this same build 2200g/570 combo. Runs games better than most people would probably expect. Solid entry level build.

BITWIT is great. I love Lyle

As a processor, the 1300x would be better because it has a higher boost and supports PCIe x16 (the 2200g only supports upto x8).

  • 8 months ago
  • 3 points

The 2200G is slightly more efficient, and PCIe x8 is still enough for most GPUs you would pair with it

  • 6 months ago
  • 2 points

All these things in consideration, the r3 1200 is the best budget cpu atm. It is only marginally slower than the 2200g in real world use and costs around $35 less.

  • 8 months ago

Cool build. I wonder if someone could tell me if this build would run World of Warcraft at medium settings at least? Should I expect this to perform well for that game? It's basically the only game I'd be playing. Thanks!

Hello, I was wondering if this had an audio jack already built in? (I am new) I also wondered if this would be able to run virtual reality games such as oculus. Also I love this site and how everyone is positive and helps one another

  • 8 months ago
  • 2 points

The case has both a headphone and mic jack. For oculus rift an RX 580 is recommended instead of an RX 570, but a 570 might be acceptable. If you want to go the 580 route, the 2200g shouldn't bottleneck it.

Search up windows os for which ever windows version u want. Plug in a flash drive and download the file on the flash drive. Then when u build ur pc you plug the flash drive in and power it on. Simple as that. Or you could just search “how to download windows for free” on YouTube lol

Use of Windows must be done with a legitimate product key.

That being said, you can run the basic install of windows 10 as long as you want without activating it. You will not have access to a lot of the settings and customizability, but it will run your applications.

What type of FPS do you think this build could achieve running Rocket League with modest display options?

  • 8 months ago
  • 3 points

Probably 90+ on max 1080p. Rocket League is not demanding and the 570 is a pretty good entry-mid card. For reference it averages 65fps on Battlefield 1 on 1080p max. So Rocket League would be a walk in the park.

At around how much FPS will fortnite run at with this build?

with low or med settings

  • 8 months ago

wrong this will run about med to highish settings 60fps

  • 7 months ago
  • 1 point

depends on the game. You'll be able to play games like dota 2, LOL and rocket league fine on max, and fortnite and similar games you might want to turn it down to high settings. If your playing shadow of the tomb raider and Games of that sort I would recommend looking at the modest amd build guide.

  • 7 months ago
  • 2 points

yea obviously a 2200g and Rx 570 will not play all triple a max settings or even high at enjoyable fps

  • 8 months ago
  • 2 points

How would this build do with some more recent AAA games like RE2 or Metro Exodus? Presumably not great at max settings, but I'm trying to get a general idea.

  • 8 months ago
  • 2 points

Well AMD has a promo running right now for the 570 4GB (from Gigabyte) which includes getting RE2 and another game (DMC5 or The Division 2). All 3 with the 590.

So I'm guessing the build would be good for playing RE2.

First time building a gaming computer.

The reviews of the hard drive (Hitachi - Ultrastar 1 TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive) are not the best. Can these be ignored? If not, what is a recommended replacement hard drive which is compatible with these other components?

Thanks!

  • 8 months ago
  • 3 points

probably a caviar blue or Seagate 1tb drive for a little more money

  • 6 months ago
  • 1 point

Hitachi is garbage. From personal experience watching hundreds of drives die, buy Western Digital blue for all regular use. That being said, SSDs are waaaaaaay cheap now and completely worth the investment. For brands on SSDs, go Crucial or Samsung. A 500gb Crucial is only like $60 now.

Does anyone know around what FPS this build will run on CSGO and Rainbow Six Seige? I am 14 and don’t know much about these parts and I will mainly be playing these games.

  • 8 months ago
  • 2 points

This Run CSGO very easily bc its not that hard to run and im not so sure about rss bc I dont play that but it will probably not be a problem to run. CSGO will probably run anywhere from 100-180ish fps rrs probably 60-85

hey im 14 as well, i played on an imac that had 30-50 fps range for csgo lol, tell me how much fps you get when you play csgo on the computer. I'd probably build this pc for my birthday.

  • 6 months ago

Hey dude, this will easily run CSGO at 300fps maxed out, I have a weaker build and it does absolutely fine.

  • 8 months ago
  • 2 points

Im looking to to get a cheaper pc for RTS games, and modded terraria and minecraft, is there anyway to make this more cost effective or is this pretty basic? send me a new list if anyone fancy it doing it:D

Peace and Love

  • 6 months ago
  • 4 points

If you 100% need to go cheap here is what you do. Go to ebay and buy a Dell optiplex with 8gb ram and either a 2nd or 3rd gen i5 (make sure it is a full tower and not low profile). Then, buy a used GTX 970 for around $80 and a new 500w 80+ rated PSU for around $40 and 500gb Crucial SSD for $60. If you want to bump up the ram to 16gb (assuming it is in 1x8gb sticks) it will be like $25-$30ish on ebay. Total cost should come out around $300-$350 and will run literally everything around 60 fps at 1080p.

Otherwise, this build is pretty basic for all new parts.

  • 8 months ago
  • 2 points

i think there is no point in buying the rx 560 because integrated graphics in 2200g are still not that bad and you save yourself 100 bucks. Also, i hate it when people comment on build guides about building pcs while there is a forum for that: https://pcpartpicker.com/forums/forum/27-create-a-part-list-for-me/. Spread the word.

Hi im new, how much fps will this pc give me on med settings? And will all these parts go together? Im trying to build my first pc but a lil lost

  • 9 months ago
  • 0 points

It depends on the game. This will give you 40-60 fps on most AAA titles, but for more demanding open world games expect frames to get into the 30s and you may have to use lower settings. Yes, these parts should all fit together. If you want to build the pc even cheaper and don't care about 30 fps at low settings you can ditch the video card, the Ryzen 2200g CPU had integrated graphics.

  • 8 months ago
  • 1 point

would there be any upgrades i could get instead of the parts listed to get a steady 60 fps across the board? maybe $100-200

  • 8 months ago
  • 2 points

Your best bet will be getting an RX 580 instead of and RX 570

  • 8 months ago
  • 1 point

Again it would depend on the game. Upgrading the CPU to the Ryzen 5 2600 would help.

  • 8 months ago
  • 1 point

probably pubg, csgo, lol, starcraft, fortnite, r6siege, maybe some for honor. i wouldnt mind dropping the quality a bit i just want steady 60fps at minimum. i dont want potato graphics though so if theres any upgrades that would help, ill do it. would the 2600 be enough?

  • 8 months ago
  • 3 points

No, it'd be more worthwhile upgrading your GPU rather than CPU. I'd get a 580 8GB.

I assume you're talking about this game: https://www.iracing.com/

If so, definitely. You could run this game at 1080p over 120FPS easy (if your monitor supports it). You could probably pull 1440p 85FPS also.

iRacing isn't a very demanding game. If that's all your looking to play, I'd go with this gaming PC: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/WcwvxG

I left the same case, but you can change it out if you'd like.

  • 8 months ago

Sorry, but no. Ark is a VERY demanding game. Even with the "excellent" or "magnificent" builds you'd get frame drops on full settings. I think if you played on low settings you might hover around 30-40 fps, but there would still be drops bringing it lower occasionally.

you should be able to play witcher 3 at around medium settings. if you wanted to upgrade it I would do the cpu to a ryzen 5 and get another 8gb of ram. the gpu is okay but if you wanted somthing better I would get a 1060 6gb

I’ve always had some no good laptop to play my games on and all I could play was Minecraft. Even that had to be on the lowest settings possible. This build has caught my eye. I was wondering if it could run all of the games I am actually wanting to play. I already know from reading previous comments and the information above that I can play Fortnite and Minecraft. Which I’m really happy to see. But I was wondering if I could play my other games I want to play. Like:

Skyrim. Battlefield. Fortnite. Minecraft. Eve. League of legends. DayZ. Fallout 4

These are all the games I have been wanting to play for ages. I haven’t managed to play any of them due to having a bad computer. This build seems really worth it if it can run all of these games. I’d prefer if it could run these games on atleast medium settings.

My only problem is now; after purchasing all of the parts for this. I’m not actually sure how to put them together. Could someone also link me a video or something that could teach me how to build this?

Thank you for reading if you read my comment. I’d just like to know if it could run those games.

So I have looked online and I found that I can buy a Ryzen 5 1600 processor for just $80 at my local Micro Center and a 8GB RX 580 for $170. Should I get this or is the build fine as it is?Also, should I trust eBay for computer parts? It says that there is a brand new RX 580 for$120 but I don't know how reliable eBay is in the context of computer components. Thanks :]

EDIT: Heh, nevermind. Someone already bought the RX 580. Should I still get the Ryzen 5 though? EDIT 2: Alright! Scratch that! At my local Micro Center they sell 8gb RX 580 for $170, so I'm gonna go with that instead if it's worth it.

If the MOBO needs a BIOS update do that first. Then let Windows update before you install GPU drivers.

Most likely you can just run windows 10 updates. It is very good at pulling in drivers. The only one you might want to do manually is the GPU.

Hello, I am trying to slowly build a computer for my house, general usage, nothing crazy, don't even play games....with that said, we have a mac mini and hate it. I went with mac because I was sick of all the PC bloatware and how amazingly slow a PC can become after a year or 2.

My hope is to build a nice, simple, but fast computer that will take of word processing, general internet usage and a few other things. I like the look and price of this build....is it overkill?

Finally, does building a computer like this prevent all the crappy adware/bloatware that comes with pre-built from best buy? thanks for the help.

  • 7 months ago

it is kind of overkill for simple use. in fact if u just take out the graphics card the Vega 8 in the CPU will be more than enough for day to day general use. for ur other question there will only be the apps that are like straight windows only. but buying a key can cost money. anymore from 15-100 dollars. you also dont want to buy the key from windows as they charge 100+ dollars for it. instead there are many websites that sell then for 10-20 bucks.

I'm not into gaming to much at the moment, but it may be something I'll get into later. I've tweaked some things and com out with this: https://pcpartpicker.com/user/Retro_R/saved/RHrx6h. Does anyone have good recommendations for if I should change anything, like a better graphics card, processor, etc?

  • 7 months ago
  • 2 points

TL;DR: It depends on how much you're willing to spend and what you want to do with it. I can give you suggestions that'd tweak your build for productivity, but, for entry level gaming, your build is just fine. Productivity tweaks below.

So my suggestion has a few caveats. Is money an object? I'll assume you aren't trying to break the bank here. Also, what do you want to use it for currently, if not gaming? Productivity?

RAM: Well, if you think you'll have a lot of programs / tabs open simultaneously - say for research or something - you should get more than 8GB of RAM. I'd say 16 is a sweet spot, but some people go for more just to be safe. The more RAM you have the less likely you will be swap data between RAM and your hard drive or SSD when doing a lot of tasks at once.

CPU: I'd say the CPU is good enough, but something with a higher core/thread count would benefit you more for productivity, if that's you're goal. Now, you don't HAVE to whip out a threadripper... but it would be cool and perform really well.

GPU: Similar story for the graphics card, though I'd go a bit higher personally (say, RX 590). Or you could get a graphics card more geared towards things like CAD work if that's what you'll be doing, such as NVidia's Quadro series or AMD's Firepro series. Keep in mind that these graphics cards don't do so well with gaming, so if you want to do both, considering buying both a work and gaming card and swapping out which card you're using when you game/work. Or just building a separate workstation from your gaming rig. Kinda costly, but some people prefer it.

Storage: If you're going to be doing a lot of productivity that involves frequently moving/making larger files, maybe a larger/another SSD, or even swapping the HDD with a hybrid? I don't do much work of that kind anymore, but that was my plan before I stopped. Honestly, though, what specs you should aim for really depends on what you'll be using the computer for.

  • 7 months ago
  • 1 point

I'm probably only gonna use it for web browsing, discord, and maybe virtual boxes. I don't wanna spend too much (less than $1000 for sure) but don't really have a price range. I'm probably gonna use Chrome, or Firefox (prob Firefox more bc I've had issues with chrome). I added a CPU with some more cores so that should be good. I'm looking at RTX 580s, since I've been told to look at those. I'm also thinking to keep 8GB ram for right now and when prices drop, get the other 2 8GB ram sticks.

  • 7 months ago
  • 1 point

Oh, you can definitely get that for less than $1000 (assuming you mean RX 580s). I get that RAM is expensive, so it's up to you to asses value for picking 8 or 16. Also, I'm using Firefox too for that exact reason. Good luck!

  • 6 months ago
  • 1 point

Drop the SSD and the HDD for a Crucial M.2 1tb ($120ish) imo. Prices on SSDs are coming way down, so at this point I would say it is mostly pointless to invest in an internal HDD.

Ram is cheap these days (finally) so I would opt for 16gb at 3000ish speed. 8gb is fine for everyday use, but if you start running more than a few programs at once with some gaming thrown in you will want more. If you get a 1x8gb stick to start with, it is easy to go up to 16gb. Having multiple DIMMs lets you use dual channel as well, which makes ryzen run better. Again, not vital for every day use, but good for gaming.

I would also recommend getting a bigger PSU, something that will not need to be replaced if you do get a beefy GPU. 550w-600w is fine for most cards and as long as you get 80+ you should be fine (the + rating is not quality, but rather efficiency).

The CPU is awesome and will last you a very long time.

The Mobo is ok, but personally I would get something like this: https://pcpartpicker.com/product/WcjJ7P/gigabyte-b450-aorus-m-micro-atx-am4-motherboard-b450-aorus-m

PC Cases are personal preference. That being said, I hate Zalman, as I feel there are better cases from DIYPC, Corsair, Fractal Design, and NZXT for around the same price.

If you are just looking to try out gaming the RX 570 or 580 8gb are the cards to look at.

  • 6 months ago
  • 2 points

Ok, so I've already built the pc, and it looks very different from the list I posted. I have the finished build on my profile tho if you really want to see it tho.

So, I feel M.2 drives are super expensive for the storage. I got about 1.28 TB for about the same price as that m.2 1tb drive and it's pretty snappy nil.

I ended up getting a Corsair 16gb DDR4-3200 kit that a friend gave me.

I got a 700W PSU bc that was the closest to what I was gonna get at Frys (I was gonna get a cx750m, but they ran out)

I stuck with the zalman case because It was relatively cheap, had a optical drive bay, and a door for the dvd drive bay (most important part because it looks the best to me) Looking on here for cases that are $60 at most, have a drive bay, and are from companies that you listed, there was only one (DIYPC Silence-BK) which is pretty good, it was about $15 cheaper, had sd card reader, but it only had 3 fans (z9 Neo came included with 5). I guess I just didn't see it at the time. But I'm pretty happy with my case, especially the door!

I also got a 1660ti

  • 7 months ago

Solid, but I have a gripe or two. While you come in with a nice price tag for an entry level build, I have to wonder if 8 gigs of ram is actually enough in 2019 and going forward. While most things would run well enough (except maybe chrome), you pretty much leave no room for multitasking, in my experience, and would definitely run into performance issues for, say, Minecraft (it's ever evolving nature can potentially use up a lot of RAM as it generates new terrain, especially if you have a decently high render distance). That's the biggest example I can think of, but a number of multiplayer games also have increasing demands for memory as the number of players increases. It doesn't have to be the fastest memory, but just 8 gigs seems limiting for a desktop.

  • 6 months ago
  • 1 point

I have asked this question myself. I went ahead and built a system very close to this and so far I have not had issues. I will say that if you use chrome while gaming, you might want to get 16gb. Firefox seems to be ok with a few tabs but chrome eats memory like it's going out of style.

Looking for an entry level gaming PC for my son who wants to start gaming on PC. He wants to play Minecraft (w/mod packs?), Roblox, etc. Figure building one would be a good experience for us and may be a cheaper route. Would this build work for our needs? Is it upgradable for when he wants to add more memory, better GPU, etc?

  • 7 months ago
  • 1 point

Great questions! This build will definitely work for your needs and with typical Minecraft mods. I feel it's best to mention that there's nothing really restricting how demanding Minecraft mods can get, so I'm sure there are some crazy ones that wouldn't work on this PC, though many of those mods probably wouldn't work reasonably on any PC :P

The parametric filter for the motherboard is set to require a minimum of 4 RAM slots, and the parametric filter for the memory is set to require exactly 2 sticks of 4GB each of RAM (for a total of 8GB). This means there will definitely be room for another 2 sticks of RAM to be easily installed at a later date.

Simlarly, the GPU is very easy to swap out in just about all builds, including this one!

So technically if you down the graphics to medium you might even get higher frames than that.

Same thing goes for similar games, if you have real expectations that this machine is not going to run games at 100 fps on ultra, then you will be pleasantly surprised.

I might go with a bit faster memory; maybe 3400 Ghz even if an argument by performance-per-dollar math might not be clear-cut. That System would still price-out between $500 and $520, so not too much more

I just know if people look at these specs, that is the ONE issue people will nag about, "Oh, your RAM is slow for a Ryzen build..."

So, to AVOID that sort of discussion as people look at you system just spend the extra $50.

  • 5 months ago

3400 Ghz? no such thing.

If you are referring to the 2200g specificall, it supports maximum of 2933MHz.

Also, for Ryzen, anything over 3000MHz starts to give martinal increase in performance which is not worth the price.

Not if you are talking about the new Ryzens coming out, then they work even better with ram faster than 3200, but that came out like a week ago.

The stock cooler is only good if you're not using APU. If you're more into playing lower demand games, a GPU is not needed, but you will need a 3rd party cooler (Cooler Master: Hyper 212 is a good one for a low price) to keep your CPU at a stable temperature.

lol no it's not. Many youtubers have reviewed the stock cooler and it's absolute garbage. Temps hit 60 degrees on idle. Techsource says don't use the stock cooler when utilizing both APU and CPU, Bitwit says don't use the stock cooler when utilizing both APU and CPU, Linus says don't use the stock cooler when utilizing both APU and CPU, etc. Your PC will turn into an exploding microwave if you do. It's not a good cooling solution. Either use an AIO or use a better cooler like the hyper 212 evo. NEVER use the stock cooler for the 2200g. Heck, when 3rd gen ryzen released, many youtubers decided NOT to use the stock cooler. It's so bad.

  • 6 months ago

The only things I do not like about this build is the storage choice, CPU, and PSU.

With a mobo that has access to M.2, you should use M.2. Drop the HDD all together and put the money towards a 500gb or 1tb M.2 from a Reputable Brand like Crucial or Samsung. The 1tb is only $120 now from Crucial and has better lifespan, read/write speed, and overall quality.

There is also a good argument to be made for getting the r3 1200 over the 2200g since it is only around $65 and marginally slower in actual use (I have tested both). The 2200g is no slouch, but the performance gain doesn't justify the price difference imo.

Last note, there are better, newer PSUs for less money, but they change a lot so it is hard to link one that will still be cheaper in a few months.

  • 5 months ago

What resolution are you looking for? 1080p?

Hm, that is tough one because you have so many titles that are not that well optimized and some that are so you will not get the same level of performance you are looking for at 550 budget.

CPU - you can look to bump this up to a 1600 or a 2600 (with a decent budget B450 Mobo.) RAM - you are looking at a dual channel 8(2x4) or 16 (2x8) RAM that is running at high speeds 2600+ GPU - look at the 580 or 1660/1660ti.

Everything else depends on your taste, budget left and needs.

You can look at the used market for a GPU that will help you out. Here in the UK you can grab a GTX 1070 for 10$ more than than the 580, but the performance increase will be more than 30%.

It all depends on your taste really, some people don't like to buy second hand (understood).

Depends on what resolution you are going to be running these at and what settings.

At 1080p and mid settings, you should be able to run the above games, just be aware that settings will need to be turned down to get smooth gameplay.

Hello I’m new to this, does anyone know if this PC is Wi-Fi wireless capable. And the other is I’ve read this pc can handle Minecraft but can it handle modded Minecraft? And if I was to upgrade the RAM from the 8GB it 16GB on this which one should I get?

  • 5 months ago
  • 1 point

Hi - looking at the current Mobo, it doesn't seem to have Wifi so you will have to buy a separate adaptor.

I don't know much about modded Minecraft, so I can't give you a concrete answer to this, but if it can run Minecraft, it should be able to do modded if you tweak / lower settings.

For the RAM, if your budget allows it, you can go for 16GB, it really doesn't matter which company you go for. The only thing you should know is that the Ryzen CPU really requires fast RAM (also TWO ram sticks running in dual channel) so at minimum you should be looking to buy 2600MHz and at max 2933MHz (the 2200g can support maximum of 2933MHz).

So you will either be looking at the cheapest 2600/2933 ram or the fastest you can afford.

Hi guys a totally pc noob here, I’ve been gaming on consoles all my life and anxious to make the jump to pc gaming. Now im wondering what is the power of this build. Im playing apex,fortnite,dauntless,gta 5. Is the performance compared to a ps4 pro or xbox one x

  • 5 months ago
  • 1 point

For this budget, you can definitely get close to the console performance. This list can run games with more than 60fps (with tweaked settings of course) at 1080p.

If you want to match the console performance, you might want to jump the gpu to a 580 and the CPU up a class maybe.

  • 5 months ago

I might play some games on this, (Obviously, just look at my name) but what I'm really interested in is whether or not it can run video editing/game creation software. I'm aware you need a decent CPU and graphics card for these things, but I'm new to building so if anyone can help that would be great.

  • 5 months ago
  • 1 point

Yes, if you are expecting to be rendering, then your focus should be on the CPU. Under the 500$ budget, the 2200g should be okay, but don't expect much.

Above that, you can look for the 2600x / i5-8500 or 2700 / i6-9600k.

It really depends on your budget and preference (AMD or Intel.)

I need a very fast USB transfer speed. For work I run windowd from an external SSD. So I need a fast usb connection for it to run smooth.

Sort of. If I understand your question correctly, you want to have the option to upgrade USB ports at a later date. You cannot physically change out the USB ports on the board as they are soldered in place. However, you can get USB 3.1, 3.2, etc... PCI-e explanation boards that plug into the PCI-e slots on the motherboard.

The 570 listed is the 4gb version. Is it worth the 50 bucks to upgrade to the 8gb for this system? Also, can this system properly utilize a 580?

  • 3 months ago
  • 1 point

It can, the difference between the 4gb and 8gb is main textures in games, but there is some marginal improvement. If you budget allows it, I would def go for the 8gb version. Here in the UK the two versions are actually almost the same price so it would be crazy not to go for the 8Gb.

  • 3 months ago

Make sure everything is connected up properly.

If it is, try another SATA connector.

If you rule out everything else and none of the connectors on the Mobo work, then it might be DOA.

Another option is to try the hard disk somewhere else - for example on an external enclosure and see if it works.

It is usually hard to figure out which part is wrong but make sure everything is connected the right way first before coming to conclusions.

Hi, This would be the first computer and I have a couple questions. The first is would a computer like this be able to run an online game like Final Fantasy 14?

And because im still very unfamiliar with computers My second question is why there are 2 storage drives (one solid state and one not) and would it be possible/beneficial to me in anyway to simply replace the secondary with with another solid state storage drive, I've been told that I should get a solid state drive when building it and I am somewhat confused Thank you very much, I apologize if these answers are obvious

  • 3 months ago
  • 1 point

No obvious questions, we don't expect anyone to know all of these things right out of the gate. Happy that you came here to ask instead of doing it right away.

First off, the above configuration should be able to run FF14 at 1080p -

based on this - https://www.finalfantasyxiv.com/media/recom/na/pc.html

Maye you will need to turn some settings down to medium or low, but you should be able to get some smooth gameplay.

In terms of your second question - the reason why the above configuration has one SSD and one HDD is that most people install their Windows on the SDD in order to get faster loading times and then use the HDD which has a higher capacity to install their games on there. Technically speaking you can use whatever storage you want / can afford and there isn't a "right" way to do it. If you want to use 2 SSDs then go ahead, no problems there. If you want to use 2 HDDs no problem. You can also use just one SSD with a higher capacity if you can afford it to have everything on there. The main difference between the SSD and HDD is that the SSD loads you system and games faster - IT DOES NOT INCREASE PERFORMANCE. - just slight improvements on loading times.

If you have people telling you to buy a SSD - it is because of the faster load times and nowadays, they are very affordable as well.

There is really no guide on how to build the computer. This is just showing you the list of components that go together at the specific price point. Everything else you would need to do yourself.

There are loads on resources on the internet - especially YouTube where you can learn everything you could possibly need in order to put these components together or any other PC for that matter.

Start off by researching each separate component and how it connects with the other parts in the system - learn the basics and then go from there in terms of building it as a whole.

Had a quick search and this showed up on the fandom page for Runescape:

High detail

Processor: Intel i5 or i7 or AMD Athlon X2

Graphics: ATi Radeon HD, 512MB Nvidia GeForce G 100 or better

Memory: 4GB DDR3

Video Settings: Graphic Details on High. All options turned on.

Renderer: DirectX or OpenGL [ DirectX (32-bit/ 64-bit) or OpenGL (64-bit only) ]

The build above will be sufficient enough to run those requirements no problem. Assuming the information above is correct.

Can it run most games at 60fps on medium settings

  • 3 months ago

Sure can! Make sure to run your RAM at ~3000 and do a slight overclock on the CPU to get the most of it. You can also play around with the 580 and bring up the clocks a bit higher as well.

I am assuming you meant 60fps at 1080p, right?

Ryzen 5 is a solid choice, even with the new generation being out. I am actually looking at building a Ryzen 1600 machine myself as that is enough for 1080p for me personally.

The games you listed are playable by this build, but don't expect to run 100+ fps at 1440p. At 1080p, it should be plenty to run these at medium and good frame rates.

Eww the crappy version of the RX 560.

If you 100% need to go cheap here is what you do. Go to ebay and buy a Dell optiplex with 8gb ram and either a 2nd or 3rd gen i5 (make sure it is a full tower and not low profile). Then, buy a used GTX 970 for around $80 and a new 500w 80+ rated PSU for around $40 and 500gb Crucial SSD for $60. If you want to bump up the ram to 16gb (assuming it is in 1x8gb sticks) it will be like $25-$30ish on ebay. Total cost should come out around $300-$350 and will run literally everything around 60 fps at 1080p.

The only things I would change about this build is the SSD to a M.2 because M.2's are faster, plus you can find a 128 GB for $32, and the power supply, I would go gold rated for that just because the last time I had a bronze rated PSU it blew out and it took most of my PC with it, so a bit skeptical about anything lower than a gold rated PSU. But overall great Build selection. Also if you have the money to drop, then try to snag 16 GB of ram instead of the 8 GB
