Hi,

I am in need of a new PC and it will be primarily used for gaming, initially for the new Total war game.

The games recommended requirements are:
PC Recommended Specifications
  • Expected around 45-55 FPS on campaign map and in a 1v1, 21 units vs 21 units battle, default graphics preset set to “High”, running at 1920×1080
  • Operating System: Windows 10 64 Bit
  • Processor: Intel i5-6600 | Ryzen 5 2600X
  • RAM: 8GB
  • Video Card: GTX 970 | R9 Fury X 4GB VRAM
I am thinking of using PC SPECIALIST and this is a build I have selected on their site...

Case
FRACTAL FOCUS G BLACK GAMING CASE (Window)
Processor (CPU)
AMD Ryzen 5 2600X Six Core CPU (3.6GHz-4.25GHz/19MB CACHE/AM4)
Motherboard
Gigabyte B450 AORUS ELITE: DDR4, USB 3.1 - RGB Ready
Memory (RAM)
8GB Corsair VENGEANCE DDR4 2400MHz (2 x 4GB)
Graphics Card
NONE, I ALREADY HAVE A GRAPHICS CARD
1st Storage Drive
1TB WD Blue™ 3D NAND 2.5" SSD, (upto 560MB/sR | 530MB/sW)
Power Supply
CORSAIR 650W TXm SERIES™ SEMI-MODULAR 80 PLUS® GOLD, ULTRA QUIET

The price is £690.

Plus, I was thinking of purchasing and installing the video card separately.

Maybe this Gigabyte RX580 LINK £190 (TOTAL £880)

or AMD MSI Vega 56 LINK £250 (TOTAL £940)

As in my subject I have £1000 budget , so would you recommend any improvements or general changes to the spec?

1920x1080 display setting

Thanks for looking.

Ryzen 1600
Vega 56
and instead of 2 4gb ram sticks, go for 2 x 8 ram kit and that would save you from any slowdowns for a couple of years to come and you could push the frames to more than 120 if u want, or even 240 if you change ur settings
 
Can change some of these parts but this is a better CPU and GPU
