$1000 gaming pc (full setup)

I-O_frames
  • 53 months ago

Recently i've been saving up and as the title says, i have $1000(USD to clear up any misconceptions) to spend. By full setup, i mean that along with the pc, i need a moniter, mouse, keyboard and os. I hope i can get the famed 1080p 60fps as i am gaming on an xbox one, one of the first that came with many problems. Its a pain, and i've been looking forward to expand my horizon of games to pc. Also im not picky with anything towards the build as long as it achieves the aforementioned.

Good luck! as i have been unable to put together anything without going over budget.

Edit: id like medium-high settings, high being more favored.

Do you have any mice/keyboards in mind? Having expensive keyboard/mouse could mean skimping out on other things.

Ill most likely upgrade in a couple of months, its a wireless headset that uses an audio hub thingy,(sorry for my lack of knowledge of it) its meant for xbox one so thats why im unsure.

Yea, and as i looked up its specifications it uses digital input and output. Oh and the the website does have the software needed for the headset so were clear!

I believe i can use my stealth 500x headset by downloading software to the pc. If not i guess thats needed as well!

Why do you need software to connect it? Is it a weird connection?

When and with how much money are you going to upgrade in the future, should we take that into consideration?

Just balance out a build. That can meet his requirements 1080p 60FPS with some upgradability should be good, right?

I know, its just if he wants to go higher than 1080/60Hz in the future.

What is balanced then?

Matches his current performance goal, with upgradability for like 1440p, perhaps, SLI possibilities etc. and near the budget.

The CPU on this is overlcockable with this bios update.

Although this system has got as good specs as other posts, its got other things gunning for it.

The motherboard is a fairly good one, from MSI and it supports non-k overclocking and crossfire (for a second 380x in future).

The case is also a fairly nice one to build in and there are lots of people who have used it.

I dont want to come off offensive, but ive done some research and 2gb vram just isnt enough for games like witcher 3 etc. Everything else i like as well. Good job!

It's 8GB of DDR4 RAM. The 2x4 means that there are 2 4GB RAM sticks, equaling to 8GB, to put in dual channel.

Not that, vram on the graphics card.

Nicely done! And i see you managed to get a mechanical keyboard :o

Would you happen to know how well this keyboard performs, if not then is there a review somewhere for it?
