50 months ago

Hey, So im making my first build (budget) and Ill be playing games like LoL and etc, but for christmas I might see if I can get GTA V, or IV can you see if my specs will run it? I mean I dont need to play on Ultra at 60FPS. I just want to see if I can run it and play on it without lagging every 3mins, crashing, overheating and etc

If I cant, can you please tell me what I should change? Thanks!

I'd bet you could run it just fine. If you haven't bought anything yet I'd look at getting a better GPU.

Here is an example of that card you picked running GTA v.

I havent bought my GPU or CPU yet, so if I changed my GPU, what should I change it too?

One of these two should work well.

The CPU is most important for smooth gameplay (and the i5-4690K is quite good), but a better graphics card will let you run at better visual settings.

My one concern is that the R9 280X will be pushing your PSU a little farther than I'd like; there's a few other options: EVGA B2, Antec HCG 620M, and EVGA GQ 650W.

I mean my build is only around 330W and I got a 500W PSU and thanks!

There is a lot more to a psu than just wattage like build quality and performance which the CX/Builder is lacking in and its overpriced. i would highly recommend getting one of the psu's that he recommended.

Evga g2 is a great series

280x, 290, 380, or 380x. Just my opinion though, hell you might be happy with the 370. I would keep researching and make sure you will be happy with the performance of that card. Nice choice on the CPU, I have one and it runs great. Good luck and hopefully some others will chime in and give you some more advice.

You should run fine, get a better gpu and a better psu

I recommend buying a r9 380 because its actually will let you run at 1080p at high to low settings and 1440p at medium to low settings. its 280 dollars Canadian. and please DO NOT get the 380X it is hardly better at all. and by the way that cpu is really good and in the future you may crossfire 2 r9 380's.

Better get a larger Hard Drive :) GTA V install is 60.6GB's

recommended specs:

OS: Windows 8.1 64 Bit, Windows 8 64 Bit, Windows 7 64 Bit Service Pack 1
Processor: Intel Core i5 3470 3.2GHz (4 CPUs) / AMD X8 FX-8350 4GHz (8 CPUs)
Memory: 8GB
Video Card: NVIDIA GTX 660 2GB / AMD HD 7870 2GB
Sound Card: 100% DirectX 10 compatible HDD Space: 65GB

Intel Core i5-4690K 3.5GHz Quad-Core Processor is what you have

This. You will actually be unable to install in on your SSD unless you install it on your HDD first and then move it over to your SSD and hope it works like that. GTA V requires around 120GB of space to just install, you would have around 100GB left after installing Windows.

The SSD isnt for GTA, its for OS & Bootup etc

Your OS isn't going to take up all of that room, you would still have quite a bit of room left on it.

Not really, this is just a budget gaming build so I didnt want to waste $33 when I can play GTA just fine with what I got, im not a hardcore gamer

lol get a Hard drive for games and use the SSD for OS, change GPU and go with like 600w PSU.
