Description

This was originally given to me by my older brother as a starter computer, as i was looking to ween myself of the PS4 lol. As i played i wanted to get more then 20 frames in PUBG on vary low. so i started looking into computers and learning what did what and started replacing them piece by piece. Here is a list of the original build.

CPU: amd fx 4300 CPU: cooler fan zip tied on radiator lol GPU: gtx 1050 1 gb RAM: 2x4 8gb of old **** ram SSD: none HDD: 7 year old 1tb off brand hardly able to launch windows hard drive PSU: was some 400 watt ketchup and mustard wired tin foil color thing CASE: is original, wurst cable management ive ever seen theirs no place to hide them so dont say anything about it i know its crap lol.

So yeah, after slowly upgrading those parts im now able to play all the games i want without frame drop or random lag spikes its not a tank but i got a brand new build picked out just waiting on Benjamins haha.

BF4 fps 120 on ultra PUBG fps 80-130 on high MC fps 180-60 on fancy

Part Reviews

CPU

great little unit never runs to hard about 40% load while hardcore gaming great value built off MB with amd chipset and didint want to spend to much money!

Motherboard

this was in a overhaul i did and didint want to replace if your doing a budget build this is great choice for you otherwise stick with intel

Memory

best ram you can buy for the money i think for ddr3 this is probably your best bet if you dont want to go all out

Storage

bad buy not vary sturdy like trying to mount a piece of cardboard but its in it for now

Video Card

i have no complaints about this card except it doest support led light functions with msi or gtx or pny and gigabyte as soon as it gets over 120F the lights change red and when its at idle there bright white so its kinda annoying but not the end of the world. the one i have is a oc witch comes stock overclocked and im still able to push it to 200+ on core clock and 320+ on memory so your set there lol

Case

worst cable management case ever plenty of fan slots though

how come YOUR 1060 3gb and YOUR 8350 allowed you to get 60+ fps in PUBG? what resolution were you playing at? I recently ditched my 8350 for a 7700 that i got from someone for dirt cheap and it definitely improved my performance

I get 60+ fps on a fx-8350 and 1050 ti most of time when I'm not in a town or something I get 70-80 fps

at 1080p? i wonder what i'm doing wrong

1080p all very low with ultra view distance and 100% screen scale no vsync no AA 103 fov max brightness
you can't expect ultra on anything but the highest hardware with how the game is currently (it really really sucks that I can't run my favorite game at anything higher than 60 fps)

also what about thermal throttling and/ or overclocking? I have my 8350 on 4.3 ghz with a hyper 212 LED and I hit ~65 C and my cpu doesnt throttle... ever period even if it gets to 70+ C i have no clue why

I also have a slight overclock on my 1050 ti ~+130 on the core and ~+150 on the mem i boost to around 1800mhz to 1900 mhz and get 65-70 C ( i have the dual fan oc edition from MSI)

I had an AIO cooler and the pump failed when i was still using the 8350 so I had to use the stock cooler for the last bit of it's life.. so couldn't over clock. your cpu shouldn'd do any thermal throttling until around 80C though.

I should mess around with some overclocking on my GPU and see if i can suck some extra frames out of it, though. I'm using a 1060 though and i can't manage the same framerates you get with your 1050 ti.. perhaps silicon lottery? i don't know. I'm not worried about my CPU anymore since I upgraded to the 7700 non-K it works pretty great but i'll definitely mess around with an overclock on my 1060.

that sucks i could still get a 4.3 oc on the stock cooler though with how my motherboard is it ran at 100% all the time so that could have something to do with it. AMD cpus thermal throttle at 65-67 C that is Tjunction for AMD FX series cpus so it should thermal throttle but it doesn't... for some reason

I'd say update drivers, look for performance tweaks, double check your settings, try overclocking, look for GPU throttling, try different settings (like turn it up to low and try it or up medium etc) this might work because of a CPU bottleneck (CPU bottlenecking the GPU), look at the GPU and CPU usages (if you CPU maxes out but your GPU doesnt then its the 8350 bottlenecking the 1060), could also be malware or background processes.

great build +1 but you got an overkill power supply, you would have been fine with like a 500w. also how is the 1060 3gb doin ya? ive been thinking of getting one as an upgrade to my 1050.

You should get SEUS Shaders. I recently returned to Minecraft after a few years not playing since awful playerbase. I stuck to singleplayer with a few mods and SEUS shaders. It has been fun recently.

I get like 200-800 fps in MC with an rx 470 lol (highest settings, 8 render distance)

granted I do have a i7-6700k, but that shouldn't make that much of a difference

If I'm not mistaken, Minecraft is more CPU based I believe, so that would make quite a difference

Oh. I'm sure the 1060 is better than RX 470, though. For some reason I get way more frames than a lot of benchmarks other people have done, even though my GPU isn't that great. Like I'm seeing frames better than 1070s can do sometimes. I'm running at 1080p, too not like 720p or 900p. Very strange. The CPU shouldn't make a huge amount of difference in the frames though. I also made a bad decision on my motherboard and my PSU, so I think it throttles my CPU a bit. My CPU reaches 3.96GHz max. I will be fixing that soon, but I don't know. 60 fps is oddly low for minecraft with these specs. My old Phenom II with an HD 5450 512MB and 6GB of DDR2 got more than 60 fps consistently, granted I had to turn down some settings, but yeah. I feel like I'm just rambling at this point. with a 8370 and a 1060 3GB I would expect at least 200 fps, not getting into the 60s. I don't ever see mine go into the double digits, even when I am in really intense areas that have to render in a lot of stuff. The only time I had that happen was when I had a virus. Anyways I'll stop typing. I guess I was just bored.

lol i run pubg on high with foilege on low just for a advantage the ram is what gets you on lag its extremely leaky. the headset is sa-902 and the driver allows for surround sound sound fore 20$ its the best headset i ever had lol power supply, i didint know what was enough so i went overkill lol i tried overclocking the 8350 and it wasent to happy so i left it stock been doing well for me and i run mincraft on the highest settings to put load on the gpu and take it off the cpu same with pubg i found when i run on low it doesent improve performance as much when i run on ultra or high with render all the way up it performs better the cpu temp drops and the gpu temp rises so i kinda found a happy medium thanks for the compliments guys honestly this was my first attempt at computer anything and am just happy everything works!

I have same CPU, GPU and same amount of 16gb of RaAM (1866mhz) and with this build there's no way you get 130 frames on pubg beside in the main lobby
