Gaming PC build 1080p 60fps

HI,
I'm planning on building a pc, here is the list https://pcpartpicker.com/list/4PFR8K
Any recommendations/suggestions will be appreciated
I want to play games like battlefield 1, rising storm 2, and war thunder at ultra graphics, 1080p, and 60fps.

  1. 2 things stand out. BF1 benefits from 16gb RAM, 8gb can suffer stuttering.

    For this price point I would look at Ryzen. The non k i5's look a little dated now with only 4 cores and no hyperthreading. As games start using more threads I would expect Ryzen to hold up better in the future.
  2. You haven't included a case, also Ryzen is a better fit here, since games (Especially BF1) are moving towards higher thread utilization.
    Spend a touch more.

  3. Let me help you out.
    I have helped one of my friend to assemble a PC a couple of months back. And like you, he was also looking for the same.
    So I guess, I am quite qualified in answering your question.
    First thing first, it might cost you between $300 - $350
    So no false commitment from my side.

    So let s start:
    1. Processor:
    Intel Pentium G4500
    Price=$67.75

    2. Motherboard:
    Gigabyte Micro ATX H110M-A
    Price=$53.99

    3. Memory:
    Crucial Ballistix Sport 4gb DDR4
    Price=$24.99

    4. Graphics card
    Gigabyte Radeon Rx 460 Windforce OC 4GB
    Price= $98.95

    5. Storage
    Western Digital 320gb
    Price=$21.99

    6. Power supply
    EVGA 430 watts 80+ Plus certified PSU
    Price=$34.64

    7. Case
    Rosewill Dual Fans MicroATX Mini Tower Ranger-M Black
    Price=$29.81

    TOTAL=$332.12

    The prices might fluctuate... so do keep a track on that.

    Hope this answer helps

    Thanks
  4. Not enough RAM, case is poor quality, PSU is crap, storage is tiny, GPU is poor performance and overpriced, G4500 doesn't have hyperthreading like the G4560 and the motherboard isn't compatible unless it's manufactured after Kaby Lake which is only about 10% of them, playing the lottery.
  5. I'd say get 16 go ram to help with games like bf1. A ryzen, like a 1600, could also help with that. But if you stick with 8GB get one stick so you can upgrade in the future.
  6. A better CPU and GPU are better fits here vs 16GB of RAM.

    I changed the motherboard and casing in order to enable you to get 16Gb ram directly. With 16Gb, you will no longer need to upgrade ram until this build end of life. The case, although cheap, has 2 usb3 on its front.

    Good luck

  10. Costs $25 more, has 8GB less RAM and would perform worse in gaming at stock vs the 1500X due to the lower clock speed.
    Not worth the upgrade unless rendering, 16GB of RAM is a better upgrade over a 1600 first.
  11. Na it has 2 more cores and benchmarks has the 6 cores totally blowing away the 1500X at max OC. Plus why buy a b350 if not to overclock. The stock cooler gets you 3.7~3.8Ghz on average. That would totally pass all the i5's except the 7600k at near max OC. Most all games only require 8GB's and memory tests show it only adds about 1~3fps at best. Ram speed is more important.



  12. Beats it out in ashes of the benchmark by quite a bit, but that benhcmark is extremely CPU intensive. :P
    I'd go 16GB RAM before the 1600.
    Note those are with the OCs of 4.0 for the 1600 and 3.9 for the 1500X. Given that small discrepancy they perform identically in BF1.
    However, prices have improved since posting.
    @OP, if you can stretch the budget get this.

  13. Note 3.9Ghz was the most they could OC the 1500X. The 1500X OC'ed couldn't even pass the stock 1600x in BF1. AMD isnt disabling 4 cores on there best chips to make the 1500x. Its clear in the GTA benchmark 16GB's gets 0 FPS gain. The OP shouldn't give up gains from the 1600 for no gains in the RAM capacity.
  14. The FPS gains are practically nothing between the two....
    The 1600X would also likely have been running off an aftermarket cooler, as it doesn't include one.
    @OP, if you're set on a 1600 get this.

  16. The RX 580 now performs identically to the 1060 6GB save for optimization in games like WoW, that's about it though.
    Not worth the extra $40 imo.
  17. It has 2GB's more video memory which is the biggest factor in being compatible with games longer. The 2GB's extra could be a year or 2 longer use.
  18. It also goes $30 over budget.
    If VRAM is the issue here (which it isn't, 4GB is plenty) even for the same price point an RX 580 8GB could be had for less.
  19. Plent is the reason there are 6GB, 8GB, 11GB, and 12GB cards. Your video card has 8GB's and rx550's have 4GB's for under $100. At $200 life span is important.
  20. It really isn't that big of an issue, read up on VRAM usage stats, here's an 8GB version anyway.

  21. Ryzen 1600 + RX 580 (4 or 8GB depending on situation i guess) is the best performing combo, the RX 580 is stronger on average to begin with and Battlefield 1 (first game OP listed) makes it an even better choice since even the RX 480 can beat the 1060 by a fair amount at 1080p Ultra. The builds above look great he can just add another 8GB stick of the RAM when he decides he wants/needs 16GB and should be a solid build for 1080p 60 FPS at High/Ultra settings in most modern games. :)

    Battlefield 1 Benchmark:

  22. Yes but the average of games the stock 1060FE 6G DX11 matches the 580's DX12 scores. One needs to only read that most games have been requiring 2GB video memory for a while. Plus note the massive lose the 1060 3GB took from the 1050ti in 580 review in some games to know 4GB is neaning the minimum.

    Yes in ROTR do i need to point out this is an Nvidia partnered title and OP hasn't mentioned even playing it? I showed Battlefield 1 benchmarks because he listed that in games he plays. As for all game averages, the RX 580 > 1060 6GB > RX 480. Digital Foundry tests and average performance chart below > http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/digitalfoundry-2017-radeon-rx-580-570-review

    *Edit* I posted this before you edited your post with more games, regardless i'm just going to leave the benchmarks here i'm sure OP has enough info to make a decision on which build to go with.

  24. Yes but the nitro+ has an overclock where the 1060 in the benchmark is stock. I wasn't point to the manufactured overcloced MSI in the benchmark. Just an FYI. They are about an equal so its really up to preferences. O dont worry about the extra's that was more toward chug's post on vram.
  25. uhh lots of suggestions, thanks guys. Not exactly sure what I should get. I really don't like ryzen, nor amd's cards, as I have had bad experiences with them. here is another build i made, tell me how it compares I included a monitor this time https://pcpartpicker.com/list/8BVWLD
    I play shooters and stuff, but not exactly competitively, i like stuff to look nice on my monitor.
  26. Given your somewhat higher budget now, I recommend this.

  29. Also, I don't think I want to mess with overclocking my CPU

    Its a 2014 review that notes motion like in games. This was the results with the best case left andthe monitor right. This is the result of higher 8ms latency.

    This is what a good gaming monitor should get.

    The ASUS VG278HE would be fine but the rest are all great work monitors.

    Oh, I never saw those images. In that case, I guess a 144hz g-sync screen would be better suited for my purpose?
  32. A 144hz g-sync with 5ms or lower responce time. The behind image is due to colors not changing fast enough to blend in.
  33. Best answer
    144Hz G-Sync screens are wildly overpriced, and in that price range a simple GPU upgrade would do way more than G-Sync could ever hope to achieve.
    @OP, given you don't want to OC, get this.
    The GPU sale ends in 7 hours, so hurry.
