A bit of help/comments on my build
« on: August 11, 2017, 12:05:08 »
Hello all....

I haven';t built a PC for about 12 years so I';m a little out of touch with the technology at the moment but with a bit of research I have put together a list of the core parts for what I hope to be a reasonable gaming PC for 1080p gaming
If anyone has any comments or improvements for similar prices I cc would be greatful!

I think going for the i3 processor is a mistake, although it has a high clock speed it has less cache than an i5 or i7 also I would go for 16Gb of ram, the other parts look OK but are you sure you will have enough disk space?
Have a look here:

If you wanna play the recent AA titles in 1080p mate I would look at a min quad core in this day and age, even my 6 core struggles on some games.

g card should be fine plenty of vram and lastest line etc

Ta for looking!

From my recent reading I was under the understanding that even most of the latest games were not too processor heavy and the GPU is far more important. A couple of the suggested budget builds from the gaming pc blogs suggest the latest Pentium processor and then putting more money into the GPU but I can';t bring myself to spec lower than an i3.

Valid point in the storage, I forgot to mention the SSD is mainly for the operating system and 1 or 2 games. have an existing drive for other storage

I haven't had a big look at what's available recently but its the same stuff more or less that's been around a while.  I have a GTX 1060 6GB bought last year and its great, it could be a little better but only because it could do 70fps in Arma III on Tanoa in Single player mode with No AI and with everything on max rather than my 55 FPS.  It makes no difference really other than seeing a slightly higher number in a benchmark.  Anything above about 40 FPS looks and feels smooth enough below 30FPS and games start to feel glitchy.

Multiplayer games tend to be much more of a strain on a CPU and usually this is where you will see the benefits of a higher clock speed on frame rates.

All games can only use one CPU core, it about not being able to predict the future properly. 

Clock speed is what you want, with a normal air cooled overclock 4.2 Ghz is about right.  With water cooling you might get 4.6 or even perhaps 5.2 Ghz....That would be a heavy overclock, probably not very stable. 

Video and audio editing can use all your cores.  Two cores is going to mean doing audio and video is going to take twice as long as four cores would take.
Anyway I would say get an i5, 4 cores, bigger cache, faster for high CPU load tasks, I would get a K version they are multiplier unlocked so you can over-clock them a bit.

256GB's versus 512GB's on your SSD.  I would get 512GB's.  I had a 256 GB one and it could hold World of Warcraft, DCS world and ARMA3 and about one other game just about....with 512GB's there is more room and not so much of a squeeze....

Your PSU is too way too weedy.  600-700 Watts is better, 800 Watts is ideal.

Your choice of case is very important too.  You want lots of room inside for your video card, some cards are often too long for cases that aren't big enough. Also the height of your CPU cooler can often conflict with the sides of a case if they aren't wide enough.  Really worth triple checking before you buy.

You can save £99 by reusing a Windows 7 CD key from a laptop or buy a windows 10 CD Key from a Steam CD key site.

Install windows 10 with the Windows 10 Media Creation Tool from Microsoft. Install Windows 10 without CD key once installed punch in your windows 7 key and boom activated.

Make sure it's Home premium, Pro or ultimate 32 or 64 bit key. you get the options before installing.
