is this a good build for gaming at 1080p@60?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Is this a good build? Its primary purpose is 1080p@60 gaming. I will be adding a video card in a few weeks.

Here it is:

i5 6500

Gigabyte LGA1151 Micro ATX DDR4 GA-Z170M-D3H

EVGA 650 GQ 80+ GOLD, 650W ECO Mode Semi Modular

Ballistix Sport LT 16GB Kit (8GBx2) DDR4 2400 MT/s (PC4-19200) DIMM 288-Pin

Thermaltake CORE V21 Black Extreme Micro ATX Cube Chassis

Thank you in advance for your response.

Not going to be doing any 1080/60fps gaming with the IGP buddy. Don't see a VGA in that build.

No dedicated GPU? Even for 1080 you would need one.

I stated that I will be adding a GPU in a few weeks. I want to see what the 480 is all about.

I was just wondering if that is a good base build.

So far so good then thumb.gif
The 480 seems like it could be a good choice.

Well ya it's a good foundation lol. Your kind of giving us 3/4 of the story as the GPU is what largly dictates if your going to have smooth 1080/60fps gaming. That's like saying "Hey guys! I'm building a drag racing car and I've got all the parts needed....except for the engine". lol

What Games are you planning on playing?
It looks like you wanna game on the iGPU which can do 1080p gaming in games like DOTA WOW... Althought I don't know if you will be running on a steady 60FPS.
It looks like a nice budget build. Try to find a cheap used GTX 750TI or similar on the net. And go for a H170 chiopset on thwe Mobo since there's no use for the Z170 with that processor.
Also 450W PSU shoud do for this build.

Something like this:
PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant

CPU: Intel Core i5-6500 3.2GHz Quad-Core Processor ($197.99 @ SuperBiiz)
Motherboard: MSI B150I GAMING PRO AC Mini ITX LGA1151 Motherboard ($99.98 @ Newegg)
Memory: Crucial 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-2133 Memory ($49.99 @ Newegg)
Storage: Samsung 850 EVO-Series 120GB 2.5" Solid State Drive ($67.99 @ Amazon)
Video Card: EVGA GeForce GTX 750 Ti 2GB Video Card ($89.99 @ NCIX US)
Case: Thermaltake Core V21 MicroATX Mini Tower Case ($58.99 @ SuperBiiz)
Power Supply: Corsair RM 450W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply
Total: $564.93
Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available
Generated by PCPartPicker 2016-06-28 05:49 EDT-0400

Just as a guideline, I don't know if you already have any of the hardware or if you planning on buing. And/or if you have a roadmap for a future upgrade to maybe Kaby Lake...

Let me know what you think

A 450 watt PSU is way too low, especially in the case if he would like to overclock or upgrade unto a higher end GPU. Also a 750 Ti with only 2GBs of VRAM is not a good choice. I think he means 1080 60 generally and in the majority of the games, not only in non-demanding games like league of legends or dota. So for a build which aims to play most games at 1080 60 fps, a better GPU is to be considered.

Right, but for me this build looked quite Budget oriented, so I did not want to suggest a GPU that doubles the price of the whole system. 480 would be a nice fit for this build indeet. But evenso, Skylake and Polaris do not need that much power, 450W should always be enough, even with a slight overclock.

Let's hear from OP what games he's planning on playing, and what his upgrade plans are going to be.

Yes, 450W is enough. I saw few posts from you, TDEUS and you always try to be helpful, let me give you your first +rep biggrin.gif
