What you have in the build below is what I had considered portable... Either with a handle or mini ITX. Thanks
Thanks, I will definitely look into that, I've got one that I built that I'm looking to upgrade and would like to see how much it needs done, and also I just would like to stay up to date on the standards for these things so I know when I build my next one, I know what I need to get for what I do, so thanks a bunch! Side note... I buy WD for my disk drives as well, I love them.
Yes, I definitely need a wifi card, 802.11ac or any other 802.11 card that has ac standard, a cd/dvd drive if possible & OS if possible. Windows 10 preferred.
I am using OBS, and I know they just got a big update for NVENC, so I'm leaning on NVIDIA, but I don't know whether or not OBS's support of AMD encoding is the same quality.
I would like to be doing YouTube live streams, so would a NVIDIA GPU be better than an AMD GPU?
Internal Wifi Card: https://www.amazon.com/TP-Link-Archer-T6E-Wireless-Technology/dp/B016K0896K/ref=sr_1_1?hvadid=4961454828&hvbmt=be&hvdev=c&hvqmt=e&keywords=tp+link+archer&qid=1551172988&refinements=p_n_feature_keywords_three_browse-bin%3A6011949011&rnid=6011944011&s=pc&sr=1-1&tag=mh0b-20
Supports new 802.11AC standard, $39.99, will be more expensive than usb counterpart, but will be a bit more reliable and not hang out of the pc.
External USB WiFi Adapter: https://www.amazon.com/TP-Link-Archer-T6E-Wireless-Technology/dp/B016K0896K/ref=sr_1_1?hvadid=4961454828&hvbmt=be&hvdev=c&hvqmt=e&keywords=tp+link+archer&qid=1551172988&refinements=p_n_feature_keywords_three_browse-bin%3A6011949011&rnid=6011944011&s=pc&sr=1-1&tag=mh0b-20
Doesn't support AC standard, $16.99, only knock is it will require a usb port and will be outside the pc.
CD/DVD Reader/Writer: https://www.amazon.com/LG-Electronics-Internal-Optical-GH24NSC0B/dp/B00MOUBYDQ/ref=sr_1_7?crid=3VUD8FKFSG0T2&keywords=lg+cd%2Fdvd+drive&qid=1551173417&s=electronics&sprefix=lg+cd%2Celectronics%2C195&sr=1-7
$20, Good drive, haven't had any problems, I don't forsee any problems in the future.
Two extra parts to consider before you purchase, a WiFi Card, either internal or external, and a cd drive. TP-Link is a good brand to consider for WiFi, and LG is a good brand for cd drives. You need to buy the WiFi card if you intend to use wireless internet with this, if you use ethernet, it's not a problem. CD drives you need to buy if you use cd/dvd's at all. I will put links down here for the parts that I use.
And I just took a look at the case, it should be good enough for an entry level build. Bigger cases generally have better airflow and cable management, but smaller cases that are well designed can have good marks in both. Bigger cases tend to be better but slightly more expensive, so it comes down to how big the mobo is, and what your space/budget is.
To be honest, yes and no, for yes, it's got all the core components to make a good 1080p 60fps Medium/High settings for most AAA titles. There's only one knock, and it's not really a big one, but, the case is a little small, it might be a little more difficult to manage cables in it, but that's just a general assumption. One helpful tip is to look at the case and see it's reviews and see if it mentions cable management and if it's good/bad. Also you could look at the case and see if it has a good amount of holes for cable management. And of course, it comes to personal preference and if cable management is a deal breaker.
The only thing that I don't know about is the XFX Power Supply, all the other parts seem fine, I have some of your parts in my PC, particularly the Ryzen 3 1200, the WD Hard Drive, and the Corsair RAM, although my RAM is 1x8 GB and it's DDR4 2400, but it's the same name, Corsair Vengeance LPX. I'm fairly confident that besides the PSU your system should last, as mine has lasted 2 years now. Happy Building!
It will come down to two things, 1: Your Budget, and, 2: What is more important, Color Accuracy or Fast Response. My preference is color accuracy, so my monitor is an Acer SB220Q, the Amazon link is: https://www.amazon.com/Acer-SB220Q-Ultra-Thin-Frame-Monitor/dp/B07CVL2D2S/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1550959364&sr=8-2&keywords=acer+sb220q
It has IPS technology, so I get good color from all viewing angles, and it's at $90, so it's at a good price for a monitor, and decent response time at 4ms. It's all you really need for a build like this, because you won't be gaming at anymore than 1080p 60fps for most titles. It also has freesync so if you have a compatible AMD Radeon GPU, you can use that. If you need anymore help, let me know and I'll be glad to give it to you
Ok, Thanks again for the help, Those games will run nicely.
Is there one build that works better than the other?
What build would work better for all the games?
Ok, those will run quite well. Thanks again for all the help!
On the cpu heavy build how well do you think these games would perform a max settings?
Kerbal Space Program, Automation - The Car Company Tycoon Game, Car Mechanic Sim 2014 and Project Cars.
What about FSX:SE or Kerbal Space Program?
I play games like: Microsoft Flight Simulator X Steam Edition and BeamNG Drive. What Route would be best?
By dropping the keyboard, mouse and monitor, we free up $100. With that $100 budget increase, is there any upgrades we could do?
what items can we add to the list when we drop the keyboard, mouse and monitor?
Okay, thanks for the help!
And will it do those marks at max settings?
