I've decided that I'm gonna build a budget gaming pc, because in terms of bang-for-buckness I realized it dominates gaming laptops, of which I currently own one. Atm I'm mainly playing overwatch & skyrim, so these are my reference games. My goal is to be able to play these on medium-high quality graphics with at least 60 fps, yet having a somewhat future proof build is also something I wanna keep in mind.
My preliminary build is thus:
CPU: Intel Core i3-6100 / 3.7 GHz - 3 MB cache (120,-) Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-H110M-S2PV DDR3 (55,-) GPU: Sapphire Radeon RX470 Nitro+ 4G (237,-) HDD: WD Blue WD10EZEX 1TB (55,-) Ram: Crucial Ballistix Sport 2 x 4GB (50,-) Power supply: Corsair VS450 (44,-) Case: Corsair Carbide Series 100R Window (55,-)
total costs ( via https://azerty.nl/ (netherlands)): 616,-
*alternative cpu-motherboard combination: CPU: AMD FX-6300 Black Edition - 3.5 GHz (99,-) Motherboard: ASUS M5A97 R2.0 (89,-) GPU: tips?
total costs with this build: 630 ,-
what do you guys think? is this overkill for what I want to accomplish, or would downgrading and saving some extra money hurt me in the future proof department? Also, does anyone have a suggestion for a cheaper GPU that could do the trick? I looked into the rx 460, but from what I understand its not exactly a mind blowing GPU.
Looking forward to ur opinions!
