Comment reply on Forum Topic "Intel Pentium for gaming???"

The Pentium G4560 I believe is what you are seeing. It is a Kaby Lake pentium which includes hyperthreading so it actually ends up performing like an i3 6100.

Why are people including it in builds?

It's a great budget CPU

Does it out preform the Ryzen series?

The Ryzen 5s and 7s? No. Once again, the pentium is a budget CPU used for low cost gaming builds, unlike the Ryzen 5s and 7s.

Is it actually good for gaming?

"good" is a very relative word. Comparing to other CPUS in the price or even $50 higher, the Pentium G4560 is very good. It being good for your circumstances depends on your variables (game, performance goal, budget, etc).

Wattage is one thing, quality is another. Overclocking is an even bigger reason to spend money on a better PSU. The PSU you selected has much worse quality/performance than the original.

More like 40 - 80 depending on the game. (source). I wouldn't pair it with a 100hz monitor. A 60hz monitor would make more sense. If you want, you can overclock it to ~74 depending on the monitor.

"Mid level" CPUS such as an i5 skylake can easily perform a 60FPS performance goal in most cases. If that's the refresh rate of their monitor, no need to get a higher performing CPU unless they're doing something else from gaming.

Did you read that link Vagabond sent?

aplying pressure to ram is common in most motherboards. The "no signal" on freshly built PC is also common in alot of motherboard. The IO shield problem can easily be fixed before inserting the motherboard, although you have to be warned of the problem first.

I am not sure if any motherboards in the price would be much better..

Hi,

I am sorry to hear this has happened to you as well. Currently I am waiting for a replacement to come (ASROCK HDV R3.0 (IIRC)). The retailer didn't let me know whether the mobo had a problem or not when I sent to them via warranty.

Unfortunately, the new motherboard won't be here for atleast another 5 days so until then, I do not know the problem.

EDIT:

I noticed you got yours to work. I do say, troubleshooting a new build is easier.

You are spending a bit too much on the ram, go for the Rx 460 instead (performs better), stick the the PSU I selected (better quality).

As for the monitor, not the best. It will be narrow in height. I suggest a 1440p 60hz monitor or 1980x1080p 144hz monitor at that price. The first having more pixels, the second having a higher refresh rate.

You can ask me more questions if you want. I am glad to help.

That link is to a UK retailer. Even so, it includes the locked motheboard with an unlocked CPU (unlocked = overclock able), which is a big waste of money. The combo deal isn't good anyways.

If you have a couple SSDs lying around, it would be a great idea putting them to use in a build like those, considering they are free. I

Hi Tom,

Your build is off to a good start, however there are still changes to be made to optimise compatibility and performance for the price.

First of all, the AIO CPU cooler you have selected at $82 is of bad value, when a correctly tightened Skythe Fuma HSF (air) cooler can perform similarly, if not better, for just $50.

Secondly, due to the selected unlocked CPU and higher end CPU cooler, I assume you will be wanting to overclock. The only way you will be able to successfully overclock your CPU though, is if you use a Z170 motherboard. You will not be able to overclock as you have a h110 motherboard.

When you select your Z170 board, you are able to pair it with higher frequency ram (3000 or 3200mhz) which perform faster for about the same price of your selected ram.

The Kingston V300 240GB SSD is of very bad value, as it performs slower than SSDs of the same capacity for $15 less. I recommend the PNY CS1311 which is a great value SSD. As of now, Kingston is doing quite poorly with their SDS. I wouldn't recommend any of them.

Lastly, the corsair CX750M is of mediocre quality and bad value. For that price, you can score an EVGA G2 550w which performs a lot better. It is one of the best quality PSUs out there.

Why do you need 250+ FPS? That's just pointless when most high end monitors can only reach 165hz. ANS standard monitors are only 60hz.

If he isn't overclocking, remove the expencive CPU cooler. If the needs one to keep noise lower, go with the CRYORIG M9i. You can also swap out mobo for a h270 and slow ram to save money.

The performance is similar between the 2 gpus, however the extra gigabyte of vram will result in better future proofing. And Rx 480 allows for crossfire

Exactly correct. I don't understand why one downvoted you. Every CPU can bottleneck a certain extent in games. That may be at 300FPS, but we do not worry as it is already above the desired frames.

Looks decent for overclocking. Pretty nice theme, too. I just recommend getting a different PSU as that unit is not good for that price. EVGA G2 /G3, Corsair RMx are great units. If you can't get those at the price range go for a Seasonic G.

If no overclocking go with an I 5 6500. It performs similarly to a non overclocked 6600k for much cheaper.

Since they're monitor is 144hz it wouldn't be a bad idea to go GTX 1070 to for fill that high fps.

GTX 1060 is normally the 1080p 60hz King.

GTX 1070 is normally the 1080p 100+ Hz or 1440p 60hz King.

That PSU is most likely worse than the unit OP chose, due to the Seasonic G' high quality compared to rose wills reputation of mediocre quality. That PSU has no reviews for it making it an unreliable buy. I do not recommend it.

I've learn't there are some BIOS compatibility issues when pairing a Kaby lake CPU with a skylake gen mobo. Does the pentium g4560 do the same thing (will it work with a low end DDR4 h110 motherboard, or will it need a bios update of some sort)? Thanks.

Will a intel pentium run slow

Depends what you are comparing it to. The pentium performs very well compared to 'higher end' AMD cpus. The pentium also performs better than the AMD x4 860K in gaming.

The GPU will easily run CSGO and should perform atleast 60 fps on killing floor 2 with high settings.

Shouldn't I go with 2 sticks of 4gb ram

May slightly increase performance but 1x8gb is better because it leaves space for another 8 gb stick of ram to be installed into the mobo in the future.

In the build there is a compatibility issue should I be worried or concerned

Come to think about it, I'm not too sure if the mobo will need a bios update paired with the G4560. Lemme check in on that and report to you later. The G4400 will definitely work though.

Do you think $800 is not enough for a decent PC?

This pc is definitely decent compared to most prebuilts and for light gaming and general use it will serve well.

maybe a 19" monitor

Is that 19" the minimum size, the maximum size, or the size you would like it to be because I recommend a 21" or 24" monitor over that.

So you chose that SSD because another build you saw had the same SSD.

That build must not of had much thought put into it, since they chose that low performing SSD.
