  1. It ought to be fine at 1080p, though it's a possibility that as time goes on, you may have to tone down a setting or two in AAA games.

    Just make sure to clear the build with Hugh first; he gets kind of grumpy.

  2. What do you mean ask hugh?
    And I will upgrade my gpu down the line, I just want to know if i can get better at the same price point.

  3. You asked about Hugh/Ultra settings twice. Ultra I can help with, but Hugh's a bit moody so you want to double-check everything with him; he might have a 1440p monitor or something.

  4. What's your budget?
    It can be improved, drop the SSD too, not worth it unless going at least 240GB.

  5. Somewhere around 1000 dollars.
    Won't it help Windows boot father and run a lot smoother but?

  6. Buy the 1600 as it is only lower clocked and you can overclock it, I'd drop the cooler on this build considering the budget and go with the stock one from AMD that is included with the 1600. Make sure to get some 2x8GB 3200mhz RAM, Ryzen loves fast RAM.

    It will help software to load somewhat faster, and windows will BOOT faster, but that's it, no performance issues or impacts in regular use.

    On a build like this a SSD for the OS is a bare minimum, I'd rather take a hit and get a 1070 with a NVMe drive.

  9. How so?
    An SSD can be easily added later, 1070s cost the same as 1080s remember?
    There's no point there, you're losing out on heaps of performance.

  10. That seems like a good build, and I will take your advice and get a ryzen 1600 with wraith spire instead, save a few bucks, and get better ram. And also, since I live in India, everything is super expensive. The only gtx 1060 that fits the budget here is the mini Itx version from gigabyte. Does it have any major disadvantages?

  11. And talking about ram, I'm getting a sweet deal on ballistix elite 8GBx2 Ddr4 3000MHz ram. 3200 ram is almost double the price here. Is it really worth it P?

  12. The case comes with 3 120mm fans preinstalled, I'm getting a good deal on it, just 35 dollars

  13. I was speaking of the spec 04 listed above.

    Not sure I'm in the UK and the pricing hasn't been that affected by mining, at least not the nVidia side of things.
