PCPartPicker Part List
Lol I just realized that I never sent the actual link https://youtu.be/CDhWxG1m1so
This should give you a general idea of what performance you can get in rainbow six as well as plenty of other games from the channel. It might even do slightly better since the CPU used in the tests is a bit worse than what comes with the razer stealth 13. I’d say that if you’re comfortable knowing that you have used hardware then go for it if it’s the same price, but also take into account that if you’re happy with the performance the MX150 can give based off that video then I personally would stick with new.
Have you considered the razer blade stealth 13 yet? It might not be enough depending on what performance you’re hoping to get, but the one with the MX150 definitely CAN game at lower settings and fps. So if that’s not an issue with you since you have a desktop, I’d highly recommend it as it’s actually the one I’ve been using for school too. It’s very light, quiet, has a good battery life, and is quick to charge.
Unless you specifically need intel then going with ryzen is a better option to keep the cost within budget.
No there’s nothing wrong with the list it would all work together just fine. It’s not exactly the best bang for your buck and it doesn’t help that the options for white colored parts is rather limited unfortunately, but I’m sure you’re aware of the extra costs that come with rgb so if you like the look go for it.
Only other thing is that PSU is overkill so I put that money into getting a better GPU instead. I also went ahead and changed out the hard drive for one that has twice the storage for the same price, and also added a small ssd for a fast boot drive but it’s definitely not necessary so you can just ignore it if you want.
This should do the trick and the PSU will easily run an RX 570 if maybe sometime down the line you decide to get a dedicated GPU for better performance.
Aw why’d I get down voted?
Within the budget and faster storage.
You could go with something like this.
Or if you wanted to go cheaper.
By the way the case doesn’t actually come with rgb, the picture is just like that.
Isn’t 550w pushing it for a 2080 super? A 650w is the minimum recommended by EVGA themselves. https://www.evga.com/products/Specs/GPU.aspx?pn=8d4f60c5-948c-40f4-95e0-c6c5429d4298
Is windows needed?
I’d say if you already bought the bundle then just keep it.
With your budget you could even get a 4k 144hz monitor if you really wanted to, but that’s up to you wether or not you think the price increase is worth it. And a desk and chair is ultimately up to personal preference, but I can say from personal experience that this desk is pretty hard and sturdy for the price and it has multiple options for length and color.
Yup, it’s ready out of the box.
You can really just change out the CPU to it and leave the rest the same. The reason why I chose the 2700X over the 3600 is because you said you want to stream, so the extra 2 cores would help in that regard
Well for your purposes i’d say it would be the GPU first and then the CPU, but it has to be balanced because you wouldn’t want to put so much into the GPU and get some 2 core CPU because it would bottleneck the GPU.
Just slightly over the $600 mark but should get you much better performance.
You can just take out the hard drive if you want it to be closer to $800
Gets within the budget with a 3600 and a 1660 super without any mail in rebates too.
I’d upgrade the storage and add a cooler, but I’d say the monitor upgrade is worth it because you could have the most powerful system ever but if you run it through a 1080p 60hz monitor then you wont see any better performance than a system that could cost half as much. 1440p 144hz is a nice sweet spot, but you could save a bit of money by going with a 1080p 144hz monitor if you really wanted to. I just can’t really recommend sticking with your current monitor for this price point.
That CPU and GPU are designed more for workstations than for gaming, you could get better performance for the same price choosing different parts.
Oof, I just saw this comment after posting. RobertL90’s build is what I would go with, but if you’re hoping to game on it then I’d suggest maybe looking into the used market at this price point.
Noted. I can’t edit it anymore, but I’ll remember that for the future thanks.
Depending on just how cheap you have to go you could go with this and get something like a 5500 later on.
Happy to help!
Oh wow I had no idea, thanks for the heads up!
Edit: Changed the ssd in response to ImperiousBattlestar
