Build for gaming at 1920x1080/60fps

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Looking to build a new PC. Lots of new stuff available since I last game on PC. Need advice on what I can buy that's cost effective to game at 1920x1080/60fps.

I require a build that is as realistically cheap as possible. Not bothered if its AMD/Nvidia/Intel as long as it does the job. All prices need to be in GBP not Dollars etc. Over clocking isn't a priority but obviously it's not a bad thing to have the option of. Primarily I want something playable.

Want to play older games like Overwatch, Diablo 3, Starcraft 2, Guild Wars 2, but also have scope to play most games out on current consoles also.

The following...

CPU: AMD FX-8320 3.5GHz 8-Core Processor (£115.99 @ Novatech)
Motherboard: Asus M5A78L-M/USB3 Micro ATX AM3+ Motherboard (£49.50 @ Amazon UK)
Memory: Kingston HyperX Fury Red 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3-1333 Memory (£61.90 @ Amazon UK)
Storage: Western Digital BLACK SERIES 2TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive (£99.99 @ Amazon UK)
Video Card: MSI Radeon R9 380 4GB Video Card (£160.98 @ Amazon UK)
Case: Cooler Master N200 MicroATX Mid Tower Case (£41.83 @ Amazon UK)
Power Supply: Silverstone Strider Gold 450W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular SFX Power Supply (£86.59 @ Kustom PCs)
Optical Drive: Lite-On iHAS124-04 DVD/CD Writer (£11.48 @ Amazon UK)

Total: £628.26

Was suggested before but I'd like to try and aim for a lower price point if possible.

Thanks.

It's not wise to go with FX 8320 when it's a dead platform and AMD will release Zen in some months.

You can consider an Intel i5 and RX 460 or GTX 1060, as you seem to play eSports.

Maybe wait a Short time. In Q3 2016 there will be new Stuff from AMD and Intel when i remember right.

If you stay with this bundle take RAM with hier frequenzy (1600 or above)

What about the rig in your sig? You can use your sig rig, just upgrade your GPU to a GTX 1060 and buy a 850 Evo with a 2TB or something Sata 3 HDD and you should be good. Overclock the 3570k a bit, I don't know what's possible to reach with your cooler, but something like 4,4GHz should be no problem.

Agreed, just buy a good cooler, which you will be able to use in a future rig also.
overclock this i5, he still packs a really good punch, even better than the 8320 when overclocked.
maybe delid it if you have courage.=)
sell the vga, buy new one.(RX 480/1060)
Problem solved ^ . ^
post #6 of 12
I run an 8320 and a buddy of mine has the 3570k, theres very little between us when gaming at 1080. With mine running 5Ghz, it butchers a stock 3570k most of the time.
On an AMD, the motherboard make a huge difference, especially if you want to go overclocking. After using an Asus M5A97 before a Sabertooth 990, I would never recommend using a budget board. At least aim for a 990 chipset board, if not the Sabertooth or similar.

That being said, I would not buy into the FX series processors now, a year ago maybe, but definitely not these days. Its a dead platform and soon to be replaced. An 8320 will not be an upgrade over a 3570k. Some benchmarks favour the AMD, others favour the Intel. Regardless, its a waste of money.
The 16Gb RAM is also a bit pointless. I took the 8Gb out of my media PC to run 4x 4Gb Vengeance 1600 and it increaed my Firestrike score by a whole 12 points. Not worth it for gaming really.
The Silverstone 450w PSU in your list will not be enough for what you spec'd out. However the 850w Corsair unit in your current system is fine.

I run a 380X at the moment, its not bad and handles 1080p just fine for me. Though I am tempted to get a 390 now that the price is down due to the 480, or even a 480.


For you, I would suggest keeping the current CPU, Mobo and Ram.
Purchase a better cooler. I went from Corsair H60 to H105 and it made a huge difference.
Replace your GTX 770 with an R9 390, RX 480 or GTX 1060.
Add some Solid State Drives, at least one for OS and one for primary games.


Do you really need to build a separate PC, and within that budget?

I went from 8GB to 16GB last week. I saw an improvement in both loading times and performance in certain games. As cheap as RAM is, I'd go for the 16GB.
