A budget build. Light RGB black and white theme. The goal was to play games on Ultra 1080p. Mostly used for playing World of Warcraft Retail/Classic. Running 70+ FPS on 1080p (Max settings WoW).
Hello your build looks awesome ! I am in the middke of creating my own build that will alow me to enjoy my favorite game Starcraft 2 at low settings. I wanted to ask you about the monitor your purchased. Is it good for gaming? How is the picture. Thank You.
The monitor is bang for the buck. 144hz 1080p curved & it’s a VA panel. Has better viewing angels compared to TN panels. Colors look vibrant. Basically it’s a good budget monitor to play triple A titles.
Awesome, I want dual monitors so my plan was to purchase two of them and line them up together, hopefully they line up perfectly.
Do u know how much FPS this could get on Fortnite with all settings turned to low? Please contact me on Twitter @Edwardjr99
I don’t have a Twitter but based off forms and other research I’ve done you can respectively get over 170 FPS on low settings. Maxed on 1080p about 137 FPS.
4k 60 fps, 4k 80 fps? What is that a 2080? Nice build but don't try to go over your head with that bud.
4K 60-80 FPS in WoW Classic yes sir. But Retail WoW maybe lowest 35 but up to 60 FPS. Have not tried triple A titles but assuming I won’t get those results since it’s a 1660 TI.
Causal Gamer only. Not everyone who plays WoW has no life. You’re right, I did a minor edit. I did originally refer to WoW though.
cool, I don't understand how you can be a WoW classic casual gamer? Dont you have to be on that thing for hours to even start
Not if you manage time correctly.
Keep it polite or don't comment on this site.
Sure thing, my bad
I'm actually looking to build something similar except I'm going for a different CPU, GPU and storage device.
I would've recommended the Ryzen 2600 around £10-£20 cheaper, and then you could overclock it to be on par with the 2600x.
The 1660 Ti is what I was going to go for, but you can get RTX 2060's for similar prices, such as the MSI Ventus or the Gigabyte OC and have much better performance; giving you better framerates. You can use the extra money you saved from purchasing the 2600 instead of the 2600x to get one of these without spending over your budget. This could then, as an upgrade path, allow you to consider gaming in 1440p in the future. All you'd need to do is upgrade your CPU and your Monitor.
As for storage device, I wouldn't personally go for SATA SSDs anymore as m.2 SSDs are now much faster allowing for faster boot times, load times and file transfer. The Sabrent Rocket 512GB M.2 NVME SSD which is going for £59 on Amazon is both cheap and really fast, providing around 3400MB/s in read speed and 3000MB/s in write speed. It also has brilliant reviews too.
Your build looks amazing though and I love the cable management.
That’s great advice. I wasn’t planning on OC the 2600X since it was only a few bucks over 2600 and a better stock fan. OC the 2600 would mean buying an after market cpu fan/cooler.
