I’m trying to build a pc that can easily run games like cod and valorant. Possibly cyberpunk? How much would a 4K capable 120fps cost me
Hmm… the RTX 3080 is $699 alone…
Oh lord. 4K overrated?
$700 no monitor is about what you want to look at for your first build
New GPUs are coming out mid-September and October, so it might benefit you to wait and see how prices fluxuate for current cards.
Nah, I only game in 4k. It’s the way.
RTX 3070 at $499 might be sufficient for 120fps at 4k. We don’t have benchmarks yet because they aren’t out yet.
I actually went the prebuilt route since I don’t have the energy to build my rigs anymore. Alienware Aurora R11 with the following specs (keep in mind I will be upgrading to the 3090 and I use an Acer Predator that does 144hz @ 4k)
- Dual 2080Ti thru an SLI
- 32 GB RAM HyperX DDR4
- Liquid Cooling Loops
Was about $4k plus the $1499 for the 3090 but this is the only way I’ve been able to get 4k ULTRA @ > 60fps on games like rdr 2 and metro exodus and then 120+ FPS on the fun shit like just cause or mortal kombat
That’s basically what I put in the one I built a few weeks ago. Except I skipped the GPU because I knew this new series was coming.
Went with 64GB RAM tho.
I really gotta do more research I don’t know much about computers but I’m getting older and want to transition into pc
1440p is much more practical right now.
$1200 and u can run anything u want
Best place to buy parts?
1440p is practical. I just prefer 4K.
I just had a $1300 machine built and it can ultra everything I throw at it that’s out right now. Gets stupid high FPS on apex and other well optimized shooters
@isuckat2k1999 this is a quick rough draft on what I’d build in that price range. here are some things to note:
the GPU is a place holder. you obviously should wait to see the 3070 availability in October, or try to buy a ~$350 or cheaper used 2070 super from people dumping their current card for an upgrade
I don’t have a case listed. those are pretty personal. some pple don’t care how it looks and will buy the most basic one that is solid, and some people want tempered glass with built in RGB fans etc.
the PSU can be adjusted if you stick with a 2070 super instead of a 3000 series (3080) or higher
I’d def go with a Ryzen 5 3600 for gaming (you don’t need more than 6 cores), but the 3600 is so popular that the price is above MSRP and the 3600X (still 6 core but a bit faster clock) is only $15 more so it’s worth it right now
yea ur playing on 1440p right?
Yeah mostly, less intensive games like State of Decay 2 and Wasteland 3 I run in 4k at 60-80 fps
I need to try Control with 4k and RTX on to see what I’m gonna working with for the next gen tho
paul’s hardware and linus tech tips are great, both on youtube. paul’s a bit more beginner friendly and has a lot of build videos (he came from new egg), so he’s a good place to start. linus has good ones too but his build videos can go on tangents. he has good info but maybe a little less beginner friendly.
