$800.00 Gaming and Rendering Build. (converting from console)

HORNET2012Z

I am looking for a pc that will play new first person shooter games and also have the capability of rendering using architectural programs.

I am specifically looking to play Battlefield one on high setting with good frame rates. I would also like to be able to play games in the future with better graphics. I am attempting to convert from xbox one, meaning that I am looking for better graphics. I would like to play other new titles with the same pc in the future.

I would also like to render building images on programs like AutoCAD, Revit and, Sketchup. The renderings with not be converted into moving videos they will just be converted into high quality images. I will be using these programs just as a hobby, and as practice for work.

I do not need an operating system or Peripherals included in the price. I also would like to cut the price down to keep it between $750.00 and $800.00.

Hey thank you so much for the fast response! I was just wondering why you would chose the red devil over the sapphire Radeon Rx 480. Also would I be able to add ssd memory to this build? If I could add ssd is there anything I could cut down on in price to keep the build at $800.00 or lower?

  • Sapphire Nitro+ 4GB version = 230$
  • Sapphire Nitro+ 8GB version = 269$
  • PowerColor Red Devil 8GB version = 256$

I chosse the Red Devil, because it fits the budget, and I read many good reviews and saw some really good video-reviews on this card.

Do you want to add a SSD to the HDD, or do you want a SSD inseatd of the HDD?

I think that I would like to start off with just SSD and then buy HDD as needed. I am not sure how difficult it would be to transfer the memory over to HDD later but that is my plan for now.

SSD first and add HDD later is the best way to go!

I think that for now I would like to just use SSD. In the future I would like to add HDD as well. I don't know how hard it is to transfer the memory from SSD to HDD but I would imagine that it isn't terribly difficult.

Are you sure about the 3GB verison fo the GTX 1060?

The m9i does up to 120W TDP (the H7 does 140), he just needs to be careful. H7 would be the better and safer choice for sure.

Had to choose between SSD and HDD, couldn't fit both with the budget.

This is possible though:
