And 1080p gaming. It appears that many gamers do not know to reduce settings and then complain of FPS drops in busy scenes. If you are an old gamer you know what to do, but I worry about the complaints I'm getting today. That is, there is nothing new going on. Busy scenes do task your GPU.
Also, I'm running into Ryzen builders that skip updating the BIOS and pay for it in odd BSODs and more.
Hey I wanted to get some advice on this gaming rig I want to build. Now this is my first gaming PC that I will build by hand so I'm open to any suggestions.
Goal: My only real goal with this rig is to game at 1080p for a few years and have the rig be open to upgrades (like extra RAM or a better GPU) without setting my wallet on fire
Specs: Here are the specs of the rig on System Builder: https://de.pcpartpicker.com/user/Orangedude12345/saved/Zpdjcf
Here are the reasons why I picked each part (excluding wireless adapter and keyboard)
CPU: AMD is reliable and I thought the 6 cores make it pretty future proof whilst remaining fair priced
Motherboard: Has all the features I need plus with crossfire support I could down the line switch to two AMD GPU's and put them in crossfire (slightly ridiculous but still neat)
RAM: 8gb is all I need basically and with only it being on one stick there is ample opportunity to expand
Storage: I know that 1TB is slightly low but I actually have a few other hard drives in old family computers that I could use. (If anyone knows a good yet affordable SSD please tell)
Power Supply: The 550W can fuel all my needs and gives me some headway to expand the rig if I want to down the line plus Corsair is reliable and not too pricey
Case: Great case while still being affordable plus the window is neat to show off my first hand-made PC
Please leave as many suggestions you have! Thank you
