    Already posted in the pc build thread twice and no one answered me so maybe this will work.

    How much would I need to spend to be able to play games at 1440-4k at just 60fps? I know absolutely nothing about pc specs or prices I鈥檇 be looking at or even what parts I need for it to be able to handle that but I really want a pc. idc about all that 240hz or anything crazy I just want 60fps at at least 1440p

    I play s*** like souls games, rpgs, action, adventure, racing & sometimes fps.

    the CPU isn't super important for gaming any Ryzen or Intel i3 or better made in the last 5 years (expect first Gen Ryzen), personally I'd just find a good deal on 4-6 cores on a CPU / Motherboard combo

    the reasons I'd put more money towards the GPU than the CPU is because at higher resolutions the GPU is almost always the bottleneck, at higher frame rates your CPU gets taxed much more but you don't sound interested in that so you'll most likely be hitting bottlenecks on the GPU no matter what GPU you buy speaking from experience

    for the GPU you'll want a 1070ti/2060S/3060 or better or a Vega 64/5700/6600xt or better for AMD

    16GB of RAM, 500w PSU, 1TB NVME SSD in terms of the other specs..
    any motherboard will work for your needs it just needs to support the CPU, same with the Case it just has to support your motherboard size

    my favorite case brands are Silverstone, Lian-Li, Antec, Thermaltake, Cooler Master

    you'll also need a fan for your CPU those come with a lot of CPUs, you won't need anything too crazy a standard $30 CPU fan like this will work if your CPU doesn't come with one amazon.com/dp/B08F21X2VP/ref=cm_sw_r_apan_glt_fabc_R9NBZYAK8NMZ407DG8VV

    games will get more demanding overtime though but hardware also gets cheaper overtime keep in mind certain games just aren't optimized as well, there are games that run at 5k 240hz on my 3080 no problems others struggle with 4k 60k so it varies a lot, you probably could go with a lower end GPU but some games you'd be turning settings down

    if your trying to save on the build though I'd recommend finding some used parts

    you usually can get better deals on most parts if you look for open boxed or used things I'd just avoid buying the PSU used everything else is fine.. the biggest cost easily will be the GPU your probably looking at $750 for the whole build used because GPUs are incredibly hard to find at good prices these days

    it almost makes more sense just to buy the GPU new unless you find a deal cause the used market has been inflated crazy, EVGAs queue is amazing if you have patience you can get a GPU at a fair price, that's how I got my 3080

    what's your budget tho? and a lot of the best deals are very regional like a store with good bundles (micro center) if your trying to buy new and build depends on your budget, some prebuilts like from Newegg, Cyberpower and other companies aren't bad either if your just trying to buy something new

    I play s*** like souls games, rpgs, action, adventure, racing & sometimes fps.

    So when will you answer my question that I did @ you?

    Okay here is the question that I asked you... How much are you willing to pay? And is the price including the monitor, keyboard, mouse etc. or not?

    After that so can I help you with this

    Lil Neon's advice is good too though... But it's not a bad idea to take more than one person's advice on this

    Anyway to answer your question without knowing anything so would I say this...

    4K @ 60 FPS (Hz) right? And as well as some DLSS so you can play games at something over 60 FPS without paying too much right? Alright so...

    Case: Something from Corsair, NZXT or Lian Li would be dope.
    PSU: Corsair 850 Watt.
    Motherboard: ASUS ROG Maximus Z690 Apex (Intel).
    CPU: Intel i7 10700K or i9 10900K.
    RAM: 32 GB's @ 3200 Mhz (DDR4).
    Storage: 2 TB's NVME M.2 SSD.
    GPU: Nvidia RTX 3070 Ti (Founders Edition or OC edition from ASUS etc.).
    OS: Windows 11 Home (Or Pro if you want to).

    And now the other parts which I assume you only need 1 of as in only 1 monitor for example. So okay then let me give you which ones I think you should get...

    Keyboard: Corsair K55 or K70... Or maybe Logitech G815, G915 or G Pro.
    Mouse: Logitech G502, G Pro or G903... Or maybe Corsair M65, Ironclaw or Dark Core Pro.
    Monitor: ASUS 27" ROG Strix XG27UQR, Samsung 28" 28AG702, AOC 32" Agon Pro AG324UX or LG 27" 27GN950.

    Alright that should be it

    Damn my bad bro I didn鈥檛 even see your other reply.

    Like I said I鈥檓 really not too familiar on price for performance for pc gaming so not very sure what ballpark to put my budget in. I鈥檇 say the max i鈥檓 willing to spend is 2K and no I only need the PC itself

    I鈥檝e read both of y鈥檃lls reply鈥檚 though and I think for now I have a decent idea on what I should be looking for. Preciate both of you

    Interesting that you didnt include a hard drive. How come? I know a laymans amount of info on comp and i thought the hard drive stored your OS. Would the SSD take over for that instead?

    Nvm i just peeped the storage. Didnt think SSDs could hold that much i mustve been living under a rock. I gotta upgrade my setup

    @Lil_Neon_Baebows

    2K on the PC itself? Well then so does it sound like what I suggested should meet that budget or cost less maybe depending on if these parts are on sale or not

    Anyway good luck with this man. And feel free to @ me again if you need any help and remember to check this site out as well...

    pcpartpicker.com/list

    Alright this thing is $2.711,15 so far without the monitor, keyboard, mouse etc. And the monitor costs $850 because it's 4K and does 144 Hz (FPS) which makes everything cost $3561.14 with a $5 discount or it would have costed you $5 more. And this is with me trying to pick what's available and is the cheapest part possible which for example meant going with a Z590 motherboard and since there's no i7 10700K or i9 10900K Intel CPU available so did I pick the i7 11700K Intel CPU. And I did pick Windows 10 Pro since there's no Windows 11 Home or Pro digital download or disc available so far but you should get a free upgrade to Windows 11 Pro anyway since you'll install Windows 10 Pro to your custom built PC

    Anyway take a look at the list and let me know what you think about it...

    @Lil_Neon_Baebows

    I'd build something like this if I had 2k budget and was targeting 60fps with prices where they are right now

    pcpartpicker.com/list/NMv6cT

    in terms of the GPU I just picked that one cause that's all I can find on PCParkPicker but a 3080, 3080ti, 6700xt or 6800xt would also work whatever you can get for a good price stock is limited

    Micro Center has great deals on CPU/Motherboard combos and GPUs (when they're in stock lol) if you live by one

    10th Gen Intel is a great value right now and you can always slap in an i9 a few years down the line for cheap once everyone is moving onto way better parts

    Not bad either... But if he can afford it so do I hope that he picks the parts I picked for him if possible

    Fam you forgot to add the OS thing which would make it hit over $2000 though if you do use PCPartPicker as well and not the other places where it's under $180 - $200. Oh and you forgot some fans as well... Yeah this thing is over $2000 for sure lol!

    true but that's why I don't add it you can get windows for $20 if you know where to look

    but yeah a few case fans would be a good move

    Origin pc, ibuypower, nzxt, amazon and best buy have some

    If you can secure a graphics card that's probably the first step to ensuring you can run the ganes you want to play and your build can center around that

    I mean you said you knew nothing about computer hardware till today of course your overwhelmed

    but yeah a prebuilt is a good option for a beginner

    those options listed by Devoted are good Artesian Builds and Newegg also have good deals/parts I've found

    Me and Lil Neon have already picked up the parts for you... All you need to do is buy them and watch some YouTube videos about how to build this PC and then believe me you won't regret it!

    And also there's no shame in not knowing anything about this and you can and should still buy consoles as well since no gaming experience feels complete by just owning a PC... Well so far at least. Anyway just @ me if you need any help famo

    Also you say it can be above $2000? So $3000 or less? If so then let me know so I can maybe pick some better PC parts for you if you want to

    The only problem is I can鈥檛 buy them on Amazon. I don鈥檛 have all the money right now so I was going to put this on my paypal credit but Amazon doesn鈥檛 allow that as a payment unfortunately

    Also $2000 is definitely my max budget, my wife will kill me if I spend anymore than that

    What? Well you need to so far... Unless these parts are cheaper by the time you can buy them. And you don't need to buy them now... I mean you can buy like 1-3 of them every month and then when everything is sorted out and you got all of the parts so can you start building that PC

    Anyway this is or can be one of the videos that will be helpful for you...
