Hello PC mustard racers! catonice calls for aid!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone! I was redirected here by a member from a Facebook group with regards to my first proposed PC build! I'd like to say hello and salutations to my fellow PC peeps and I hope your advice will help me greatly with my very first build! I am currently situated in sunny South Africa and am looking to make a budget gaming PC that can still play games on Ultra. Please see my signature for my proposed build which I shall amend as advised. In SA it is currently under R20000 which is about 1500$ - not cheap but probably good enough to play the latest games on Ultra thumb.gif

Welcome and good luck with your build!

Sounds like you're into your games, nice. What types of games do you usually play? And what resolution do you plan on gaming at (I'm assuming 1080p)?

Also, take another look at the rig builder, you can actually setup your rig in a different way to how you've done it which is much easier to read and provides more info wink.gif

I play Bethesda games, indie games, am currently playing Dark Souls 3 and Undertale. Yeah I'm planning 1080p, I feel like I don't need a hectic monitor (I also can't necessarily afford it) I just want good looking smooth running games smile.gif as with the rigbuilder can you elaborate more? I feel that filling in the information for each component tedious unless I was doing it wrong tongue.gif I am adapting my proposed build as I get advice. I wish there was just a drop down for all the components - if its better for everyone I will fill it out when I have some spare time smile.gif
