Eternal-1-1

38 months ago

Been a long while since I had to put a build together now my older brother has asked me to put a build together for him trying to reach certain expectations. I can't think of anything else to really drop to lower price except ram.

$1200 Interior and Monitor (Case and cooling not needed) (MUST BE NVIDIA)

Capable of running R6 Siege at max settings 30-60 FPS (http://www.hardwareunboxed.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=1553) So based off the charts I've seen on average the 960 4gb seems to give the most stable 30-60 for low price point

I created the build to fit in the budget with the monitor. It also has newer architecture. This gpu will perform better than the gtx 960 aswell.

I appreciate you putting a list together and don't mean to be rude but I did specify (MUST BE NVIDIA)

I see that. May I ask you why it must be nvidia? The Rx 470 cost the same but performs a lot better.

Majority of the games he/we run are all optimised for Nvidia. The mates I have that run AMD all run into graphical problems on a regular enough basis and 6 or so years back I used to run a AMD rig with my brother while in high school and ran into many problems so it's a brand I have lack of faith in and choose to avoid.

Here you go. 6500 + 1060 will set you up for 1080p gaming just fine.

Thanks for the list, would be pretty good for 1080p but a monitor was specified ($1200 Interior and Monitor) For a decent one would push price point up a extra 200/300.

Can your budget go up a little bit for this? Especially as it's for your bro!!

As I said for the list above is a decent list the 10 series are a great choice for anything 1080+ but price point is a tad high for this one especially with a monitor which was specified ($1200 Interior and Monitor) so that would put price around 1,600/1,700 If it was me paying I would of put it higher but this is him paying I'm just putting it together on paper and once it arrives

Roger that, got misled by your list which is $1328 ex monitor.

This is the best I can do with an NVidia 10 series, having said that, yr list is pretty excellent:

Any reason why the GPU must be NVIDIA?
