Help my friend find the right computer :)



Hi, my friend wants to buy a computer, currently he’s playing on a old Lenovo laptop, and he wants a desktop computer instead. He’s mainly playing gta 5, euro truck simulator 2 and farming simulator 2019. He wanna be able to run these games on ultra settings or at least high. Currently he’s playing on a 65 inch tv screen but he got plans to buy a computer monitor.
We’ve looked at a computer (specs below) and we wanna know if it’s able to do the job :) I’m not that much into computer myself so I’m seeking your help :)

Specs for the computer we found:

I5-9600KF 6x3,7ghz/4,6ghz
Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 6gb
16gb 2666Mhz DDR4
240gb SSD
Windows 10 pro

If you any suggestions or answers please write em, we appreciate the help :)

Budget? Location?

Why Windows 10 Pro?

I wouldn't bother using a 6 core with no extra hyperthreading nowadays. It may work fine for those games but newer games may require those additional threads. The Ryzen 3600, imho, is a better price to performance choice.

Here in Indonesia you have certain shops that are willing to build PCs for you provided that you buy all the components from them. I'm pretty sure there are shops like this in Denmark. That's going to be a much better option.

That PC above has a cheapo motherboard, a kit of slow RAMs, a trash tier PSU, and an SSD that's too small for today's standards.

I tried building one myself. Whould these parts fit together? Right now i missing the case, but whould the other parts fit together, and whould it be able to run GTA V, farming 19 and euro truck 2 on high graphics on his 65 inch tv monitor. Please note that the antivurs bull guard and the AMD xbox game pass is free and included in the cpu. :)

I cant seem to post a pic of it so here it is
ASRock B450M Pro4 Bundkort - AMD B450 - AMD AM4 socket - DDR4 RAM - Micro-ATX 669DKK
Patriot Extreme Performance Viper 4 Blackout Series 652DKK
AMD Ryzen 7 2700X with Wraith Prism - Pinnacle Ridge CPU - 8 kerner 3.7 GHz - AMD AM4 - AMD Boxed (PIB - med køler) 1499DKK
Samsung 860 EVO 2.5" SSD - 500GB 699DKK
GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER GAMING OC - 6GB GDDR6 RAM - Grafikkort 2225DKK
Corsair RM650x (2018) Strømforsyning - 650 Watt - 140 mm - 80 Plus Gold certified 849DKK
All this is about 6593 dkk tax included. Then i need the case and maybe some cooling paste.

Thanks alot, i know they should be able to run the games on 1080p, but im a bit worried because he doesent own a computer monitor for now, and hes using a 65 inch 4k tv screen, and he wants to play farming and euro truck on that, because hes got a good setup with steering wheels and stuff, im just worried that he wont be able to run gta on the 65inch 4k screen on a good enough graphic settings without a too low fps.

Farming and Euro Truck aren't that demanding, I think they won't be the problem. For GTA V though, I'm guessing around 40 fps average on 4K with high settings. You can bump up to this one https://www.proshop.dk/Grafikkort/GIGABYTE-Radeon-RX-5700-XT-AORUS-8GB-GDDR6-RAM-Grafikkort/2818700 if you want a sustained 60fps+ average.

Alright man, thanks alot. Does the new motherboard you found fit with the other parts ive got? :)
Yes it should. I also found a PowerColor 5700 XT that's a bit cheaper https://www.proshop.dk/Grafikkort/PowerColor-Radeon-RX-5700-XT-Red-Dragon-8GB-GDDR6-RAM-Grafikkort/2794196 It might not run as cool as the Gigabyte, but it's cool and quiet enough for most people.

Also, I noticed that the RAM you gave earlier isn't on the official RAM list on the board's website. This one, however is. https://www.proshop.dk/RAM/Kingston-HyperX-FURY-DDR4-3200-C16-DC-16GB/2792193. It's a bit more expensive, but if you can't run the Patriot RAM on its intended 3200 speeds, MSI won't acknowledge that it's the board's problem. I think it's worth it to pay quite a bit more to avoid that issue.

If you're using AMD's stock cooler, you are not going to need a thermal compound.
