Gaming rig (battlefield 1, PUBG, GTA, ETC...)

I made up two builds, a lot of the same parts except for motherboards and processors (ones Intel, Ones AMD), cost has come out roughly the same, basically if anyone has some input on other options to cut the cost down some more, or components I could switch up that cost less but will still give me the ability to run the games mentioned above at max settings. Second build for me, but the last one I did was like 8 years ago lol..

I see a different motherboard, and radiator, not a drastic difference, do you have any other input?

  • Your cooler choice is 120mm with added thickness from 2 fans.
  • The cooler I chose is 240mm with added thickness of 1 fan. It will cool much better. +the water pump looks dope
  • I changed the MOBO because imo you get a better bang-per-buck.
  • Saved some bucks by changing the RAM from 3200 to 3000 (you won't notice the difference)
  • Changed the storage system from 128GB M2 / 240GB SSD / 1TB HDD to 250GB M2 / 2TB HDD because I don't really see the use of that small capacity bonus SSD. If you still want one, better get 525GB Crucial MX300 or a Mushkin Reactor 1TB and scratch the HDD
  • EVGA cards had driver problems in the past. The MSI Gaming X series is one of the best for years now, and it is silent af. Had a GTX970 (now GTX1070), built PCs for friends With GTX 1080 and RX580 (all MSI Gaming X series)
  • PSU maybe 550W will be enough, I don't know if you would like to upgrade in the future. Could go for this unit if you don't mind it being semi-modular instead of fully
  • I think you added way to many fans, I don't even know where you want to put them.

I'll make another build for you with near max money saving, but still quality parts.

You could even go for a GTX 1070 instead of the GTX 1080

Thanks! that helps a lot! My reasoning for an SSD was solely to have windows loaded on it for faster booting, and the 1070 wont have any issues running everything at max?

That's the best reason to go for a SSD. So either get a 120GB SSD or a 128GB M.2, but not both

Combinations:

  • 120GB SSD + 1TB / 2TB HDD
  • 128GB M.2 + 1TB / 2TB HDD
  • 1TB SSD

SSDs to buy:

  • Samsung 850 EVO
  • PNY CS1311
  • Crucial MX300
  • OCZ Trion 150
  • A-DATA Premier SP550
  • SanDisk SSD Plus
  • Mushkin Reactor

I play on 1080p ultra- or max settings every game, and I can get 100+fps pretty easy at most games with my GTX 1070
