New rig for full 1080p gaming.

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hey, I'm trying to assembly a rig that's capable of playing all games at max res at 1080p as cheaply as possible. I've seen youtube videos where people have managed to get 50-70 frames per sec in the witcher 3 on a fx-8350 with a r9 290x video card. I am thinking about buying a new rig that's gonna serve me well for 2 or 3 years before I upgrade to a more high-end 4k one so I'm wondering if someone could point me in the right direction regarding the specs for said pc?

Budget?
Country in which you live?
Do you need mouse/keyboard/monitor?

Budget is about 1500 usd. I already have the peripherals, keyboard, fullhd monitor, etc. Right now I have an asus rog laptop, but it's getting a bit old, is about 3 years old at this point, want to try out a desktop pc this time around.

EDIT: Forgot to list the country. I currently live in Denmark, if that makes any difference.

Get the biggest, baddest GPU you can right now if you want it to remain viable for the next couple years.

I didn't even catch that it was the G1 and not the G2. I just assumed that it was by the price! doh.gif

Other than the PSU, this is a solid build.
