Can you please suggest a good setup within the budget of $700. Need to have a good GPU and SSD to be sure. Need help.
 
Without Monitor, keyboard and mouse and Windows 10 though you can find windows 10 very cheap on sale here at Toms's...
The Ryzen 2600 is going at such a good price at the moment and it is more than capable and as importantly can be upgraded to the 3000 series for a future upgrade. The 2600 is coupled the the Radeon RX 580 and 16GB of DDR4 3200 ram so will provide a great 1080p gaming experience and even handle some 1440p...

Hopefully others will jump in with better suggestion but this is a baseline...

Thanks a lot.. It was a great help. Got a fair idea. In this range that will be the best GPU right? Or are there any other options?
 
This build is kind of based on vMax system, but this has some better hardware.

The 1660ti is significantly faster than the RX580.

The PSU is the only thing in this build that isnt ideal. It will work no problems with the corrent hardware, but 450w doesnt leave a ton of room for upgrades.

Absolutely 1660ti will be a greater choice.. Do you suggest PSU to be 500w or should I go for 550w increasing the budget?

Go for the 550w CX. only $10 more.
 
Reactions: Flayed
No problems at all and as to the build from NightHawkRMX, he's right the 1660Ti is much better GPU but the PSU is one I personally would not get and I would look to at least 500 to 550w and preferably Gold rated, not an area I would look to save to much money on....

While the Focus Gold is a very good unit, for a system that really isnt all too power-hungry (65w CPU and 120w GPU) a CX is fine.

The newer CX models are actually very good for the price point. Relatively modern design and actually 80+ silver levels of efficiency.

The 450 will work, but the 550 is definitely recommended.

As we were talking, what monitor would you like to suggest based on the system?
 
Monitor suggestion depends on budget and personal preference, but ill suggest a few at different prices.

The 1660ti can run 1440p 60hz or 1080p 144hz pretty well if you turn settings down now and then. The R5 2600 may struggle for 144hz in demanding titles, however.

Only 22in and inexpensive, but responsive at 75hz and 1080p. Also IPS tech for good colors.
$90 22in 1080p 75hz https://pcpartpicker.com/product/GLm323/acer-sb220q-bi-215-1920x1080-75-hz-monitor-sb220q-bi

24in and a very responsive 144hz. Va tech for decent colors and 1080p resolution.
$150 https://pcpartpicker.com/product/MqL48d/sceptre-c248b-144rn-240-1920x1080-144-hz-monitor-c248b-144rn

27in, 1440p, and responsive 75hz. IPS tech for good colors.
$200 27in 1440p 75hz https://pcpartpicker.com/product/8KyV3C/acer-v277u-270-2560x1440-75-hz-monitor-v277u
