Hello.

I’d want to ask what do you think about this build: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/YBThjy
I am looking for budget build, that could run most games on high/max settings 60 fps. my real budget is around $1200, but, in my country, all parts are more expensive. I’d like to use the 1070ti, but i could use 1070 too. Someone advised me that i should use the Ryzen 5 2600x instead.

Thanks for any feedback.

100-144 monitor will unleash its full potential, as the machine is capable of producing 100~144 fps @ 1080p on most aaa title. but for now, you can enjoy max setting with 60 Hz monitor :)

If you are buying this new then it is a disaster. Absolutely no reason to be buying a 3rd Gen Intel chip. If you are using used parts, it is a bit unbalanced towards graphics performance. Some recent titles have CPUs faster than that listed as the minimum.

An i3-8100 would be more or less equivalent to an i5-3570k. A Ryzen R5 would be about the same gaming performance, but much better in everything else.

I don't see the point in buying into a DDR3 platform now.

For $900-1200 you can do a lot better I would think. Look into an i5-8400 or R5-2600 if you want longevity.

For about a $1000 I'd get something like this.

If you could use the extra threads of Ryzen then I'd swap it to a 2600/B350/2x8gb @3200mhz.

not sure why the ssd is so much more expensive.

this is a ryzen system. since you have 8gb vram from the 1070ti, i think 8gb is good enough for your system ram for most games.

hdd is about $50 for 1~2 tb. not sure in your country. but they are not that expensive. as for ram, look for a 2666 kit with someting like a cl16 timing, if that's too expensive, you could go with 2400 cl16 memory.
