PC Build Gaming

13
Posted 17th May
Hi everyone, just wondered what everyone would recommend for a gaming pc build.

I’m looking to get a PC built ready for Flight Sim 2020 and i’m looking to build a PC that is capable of playing this and finding components for the build at a good price.

So I have my case sorted Corsair Crystal 460x
Next I want a motherboard, AMD or Intel?

Thanks in advance for any help!

I'd hang fire until the game launches. The problem with building now is that we don't yet know what hardware the game best suits, abd that could dramatically change what the optimal build might be.
And your budget is? There will be a whole host of new hardware out this year so I'd wait a little
Preferably looking to get it all built for £600-£700
Was looking at the Ryzen 7 2400x?
Again if still wait.
Amd are releasing new b550 boards which will open pcie 4 which should be easier on your wallet.
Amd and Nvidia are supposed to bringing out new gfx cards.
Amd should be releasing new CPU

So with this in mind it should help push current hard ware prices down
Much appreciated from both of you. I’ll hold fire for now then. Thanks!
Ryzen 5 3600
B550 motherboard Mid June
16GB DDR4 3600 RAM
500GB nvme SSD
GTX 1660 Super.

GPU: Radeon VII / Nvidia RTX 2080

Pinch of salt. The CPUs and GPUs listed have little in common besides that they were the best each company offered as of around 2018. The sim itself is still at the Alpha stage of its development, so it'll be months until it's released, and it becomes clear what kind of hardware it favours.

I think your budget is £600 -700? That is £1500 - 1600 build.

Wow maybe I have under budgeted for everything. I’m totally new to PC building but would love to give it a try, I find it fascinating so apologises now if I ask any stupid questions regarding it.

I think i’m going to wait for new hardware to come out and the sim to come out as well before I delve too much into this however I have just looked on Amazon and seen the Ryzen 7 2700x for £189. Seems like a gd price. Is it worth getting that now and build from there in due time?

Thanks again for all your help

Hi Cisco, is MSI mpg x570 gaming edge the best to get for the ideal build then?

I have started my build with:
Corsair crystal 450x case
Ryzen 7 2700x
Crucial Ballistix 16gb X 2

If you're going for a 2nd gen Ryzen then you can pick up a cheaper X470 motherboard without losing out on anything.
Hi ElGofre, so it wouldn’t make any difference getting the x470 then?

What about the PCIe 4.0?
