Custom PC - Need opinions


Recommended Posts

Hey all, so I have finished school and got a job, which means income which means I am buying an actual PC rather than this laptop.

So, I have looked some up on PCcasegear and I came up with a pre-built one, the reason I want it pre-built is because I want it in the mail and I don't want to have a thing to do with building it, sorry but I just don't. So I will list my requirements below and just wanted some opinions from a broader community before I go doing anything eradic. :)

 

- Budget is between $2-2.5k for just the PC

- Has to be pre-built, I aint building sh*t

- I want to play games at a good framerate and just play good new games, but nothing fully overkill. A bit more than just enough but not too much if you get what I mean.

 

This is the one I was thinking of; https://www.pccasegear.com/bundle/432/45370,45372,45497,45564,45577,45606,45622,45710,45755,50576,50609,53766,53894

Any other suggestions or +1's?

I recommend looking down the path of custom builds, you can organise builds where you select all the parts you want and/or get someone else to help you choose and then you pay a company/business around abouts $100 to build it for you. That is what I did with my PC and I recommend it way more than purchasing a crappy overpriced prebuild. Mine was around about $2050 and it can comfortably run most if not all modern games.

 

@Bailey - I think this is more of a thread for 'Random Discussion'.

Apple is the new Windows when it comes to gaming these days.

@John Nope. Take a look at the new Mac Pro. An epic one is only gonna set you back $54,000 USD (~$78,000 AUD).

Even those specs are a bit overkill for new releases.

If you want to save a bit of money, and not sacrifice performance; go for a build with a AMD Ryzen 3rd Gen (they are really good these days). Pair that with a 5700 XT and your sweet.

RTX cards are kinda overpriced for what they do as well, but I mean if you want you use your budget go for that, but honestly, I have an RTX 2060 Super and I regret it. Almost never use ray-tracing and it cuts your FPS to a third of what it is.

As others have stated anything at that price will do you well. Is it a full build such as including a monitor, mouse,keyboard etc or just a built up case?

Nah that’s just for the pc, I get staff discounts at JB HIFI bcz my brother works there so I get like 50% off everything so I’ll just buy the rest there.

What do you mean by you don’t use ray tracing, is there like an option? I thought ray tracing was just part of the gpu and it’s always on 😂

Technically it is, but to get its full effects, you have to go into the game settings and fiddle around with it. It's trash tho.

nah he's talking about the version that has 1.5TB of RAM, it exists it's just ridiculous

also Larko, not that I think you are actually considering a Mac, but if you are check out Louis Rossman's youtube channel to learn how fun it is to fix a Mac in the event that something goes wrong, versus a windows PC which is essentially just a meccano set that you can easily disassemble and reassemble and troubleshoot
