1k PC Build


Fenrir

Recommended Posts

Hey Im looking for a 1k PC build. The 1k cost should includes monitor + ssd + case.. although I dont care about these that much so you can make them as cost effective as you would like.

I would like to be able to run the following if possible for the budget:

 

- Rust on the highest setting at a smooth frame rate w/ no lag

- The obvious (csgo, tf2, which a 1k PC no doubt should be able to run at max)

- Battlefront on the highest setting at smooth fps

- GTA V on the highest setting at smooth fps

- Extensively visually modded Skyrim / Fallout 3 at smooth fps

- Fallout 4 at highest setting smooth fps

- Just next gen games in general at smooth fps

- Be able to render / acceptable frame rate in Sony Vegas

- Be able to smoothly run Fraps over these games (? if possible?)

 

I currently have a laptop with an intel i7 core, if that would at all be feesable, except I dont know exactly how to go about getting that out, if its possible

Eh the case can be better. Decently high end hardware but a kinda meh case. For around 40 bucks more he can get a Define R5 which is a much better choice.

Probably. I'm not that familiar with cases so I just chose one I know will be alright on the off chance he just decides to buy my whole list.

Hey, would just like to clarify: Im talking 1k, the extra hundred dollars makes that much of a difference to me, so any way I can cut costs I would love to do..

Also, I want the gfx card + processor to be the most expensive part of the build not the case or something like that.

The case is more important than you think. It is your expansion, your ventilation, your hub for your components. If your case has bad airflow then you will have hotter running components. If you lack room for coolers than you're gonna have to buy another case. I'm not suggesting a expensive case, just a better one that you can use for a long long time.

The 200R is still a perfectly good case, so if he's on a tight budget (or just would rather save the money) then the 200R is a perfectly fine case. Even something like a Source 210 for $35~ is perfectly acceptable for the vast majority of builds.
