Hi, I need a bang for buck gaming pc. It has to have an OS, monitor, keyboard and mouse and run steam games @30-60 FPS at max settings at 1080p. Thanks!
Bang for buck doesn't tell us much. How much money do you have to spend on the computer?
I suppose if you want the computer to be as cheap as possible, then this is about as low as it gets while strictly meeting the criteria you want. Note that it will tend to be closer to 30 FPS than 60 FPS for a number of games. I gave you 2x4 GB of RAM instead of 1x8 GB since many games are now benefiting from dual channel memory. Also, here are some modifications you can make:
PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant
And will it do those marks at max settings?
The actual list I provided will typically not go at 60 FPS max settings, it'll generally be closer to 30-50 FPS. The i5-7400 and RX 470 upgrade definitely will do the 60 FPS, but is much more expensive.
Okay, thanks for the help!
what items can we add to the list when we drop the keyboard, mouse and monitor?
