But first, I just did some work and shared test results using an old HP D4999T with what I think is a nice 1050 Ti. Here's the link:https://www.cnet.com/forums/discussions/im-upgrading-some-old-iron-what-would-you-like/
Here's the video card I bought. The benchmarks put this model at the head of the pack of 1050 Ti cards.
https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B01MF7EQJZ/ was 190USD total to my door.
-> OK, what would I build if I was doing such? Almost any model at https://www.reddit.com/r/PCMasterRace/wiki/builds
Why? I don't want to check each item. I want what the herd is building. I want it to work first time.
I have always been interested in computers and how they are put together, I have done simple things like changing RAM, Hard Drives. This build will be more for the experience than breaking the bank to have a max spec computer.
I like a smaller form factor so for this build I am planning on a ITX motherboard build
Looking for options on a few components and also for any of the components I am currently looking at also maybe something I am nothing thinking of like brackets or cables etc
My main goal like mentioned is the experience but I would like it to be able to emulate as high as WiU and play Steam games at medium to high settings 1080p 60htz
I already own many 2.5" SSDs and HDDs so will not be purchasing those
APU- Ryzen 3 2200G
Motherboard - GIGABYTE GA-AB350N-Gaming
Case: SilverStone Technology Mini-DTX
Power: Corsair SF Series, SF450
GPU: GTX 1050ti (looking for suggestions on brand)
RAM: looking for suggestions
from a tower perspective is there something I am forgetting , I will take all suggestion that keep costs in the same ball park, I obviously know a 1080ti GPU is better
thanks for reading
