Great list. It depends. Are you planning on overclocking? If not, then you can save a lot of money by going for an air cooler and putting that money towards the cpu or ram.

Counter Strike I am only getting around one hundred and when I look at gpu usage it is only around 30 to 40%. This goes for all other games except euro truck simulator 2 and playerunknowns battlegrounds

Well I would prefer it as cheap as possible while still being decent and small, but my absolute max is like 450 as I can just upgrade when I have the money and im not going to be using this machine too often. Maybe a bit for couch gaming and when friends come over and when I go over to there house so I want to prioritize my main pc :D Thanks

Thanks for the advice, but I'm focused on making it as cheap as possible with decent specs because I already have a main pc that I'll play on :P Thanks again for the reccomendation of the g4560 I'll edit that into the list

Because (i think) games like pubg favor higher clock speeds rather than more cores, but ill consider that

I would personally go for the intel one rather than the ryzen one because for games like pubg, they favor faster cores more than more cores. It really depends on what games you want to play. Also, I found a gtx 1080 on newegg for the price of the 1070. https://www.newegg.com/global/nl/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814125880&ignorebbr=1

Yeah, i was thinking that too, that the vega cards might be better for the miners. I was first leaning to getting a 1050 and then a 1070 after the price drop but then noticed that i'd be paying as much as a 1080 then :P

Slow as in low fps, when it first boots up, the first few minutes the game runs at 60+ but then after a few minutes the fps drops to 20.

Well, maybe some light editing in hitfilm, and some audacity work, but apart from that, nothing else. Also, would a 7700k be enough for running discord, Razer Synapse, and the logitech software? (Sorry, right now im using an old hp laptop). Or would ryzen be better in terms of multitasking?

Thanks!

For about 400 dollars, (if you dont care about tn) you can get the Dell S2417DG. It has 165 hz and also g - sync. I also agree that you should go 1440p.

Wow! This is great! Just wondering, what difference does the m.2 have versus the ssd, because after some research, I found out that the only difference is its size and file transfer speed. Also, is a monitors tn display better than a laptops monitors display? (the tn one)

so, my budget is 2250, and I have about 450 for a good motherboard, cpu, and cpu cooler. (the reason theres an extra one hundred left out is because i'm looking for a good keyboard). Should I overclock? And also, if you would suggest, what motherboard and cpu cooler should be enough?

thanks!

The NZXT cooler can change colors on the cpu cooler, but not the fans (I think), Mobo was tricky to find, so I went with one that had some orange in it, 16 Gb ddr4 3000 memory, you could switch to gskill tridentz rgb if you wanted, gpu has some orange on it, you could go with an asus one that has rgb for 100 more dollars, black and orange case, rgb mechanical keyboard, razer deathadder chroma (rgb)
