Hello Everyone,

I’m planning on building a new PC for the following reason

I wanna play PUBG/CSGO/LOL and so on but not much demanding games.

Basically I need a PC running the PUBG very well..

My budget would be around 1KUSD (not including the monitor) I already have a BenQ 2411z

Kindly help.

Thanks
Cheers

PUBG is a demanding game that is a unoptimized mess. Do you have parts to start with? Case and a copy of Windows or a valid key would sure help save some $$$$ That's also a 144mhz monitor which is also more demanding.

I really don’t have anything to start with. No windows no case nothing. Just the monitor and the accessories to go with. You still think 1K$ is less for a optimal pubg rig?

This is just 6 bucks UNDER 1 Grand. It has a Ryzen 5 1500X which allows for overclocking. 8 Gigs of RAM at 3000Mhz is perfect for Ryzen. This has an SSD and an HDD. There is also an OS included.

It also includes peripherals like you asked. Has a 1060 6GB as well.

OR for as low as you want to go a 1500X overclocked matched with a 1060 6GB using mixed settings gives you a average around 60 FPS the above Intel gives 5-10 FPS more.

Nice builds! But what about peripherals, as he asked them to be in the price?

Thanks a ton guys but I might have said it the wrong way, I already have the peripherals.

Now as for the above builds, I’ve heard the i3-8350K is around 20-30$ less than the i5-8400 and does a pretty much good job and can overclock it as well. Any opinions on that?

I would like to go with the Intel build cause, I’ve seen a lot of videos where Ryzen really sucks for pubg.

I’ve pretty much got everything clear thanks to you people showing me the builds here.

I’m going to keep the intel build like I said earlier but could you guys help me with why not i3-8350K?
 
That is quite a tricky question. Both are nearly the same price, the 8350k is a base clock of 4Ghz, while the 8400 is 2.8 but boosts up to 3.9. Personally, I would go with the 8400 simply due to it having 6 cores.

But, for games like Destiny 2, maybe PUBG, BF1, the 8400 would be better. It will also last longer due to its number of cores.
