Best budget build gaming pc for between £600-£700

Hi I am currently looking to build a gaming pc for £600-£700, i've looked at some custom pc builds for AMD and Intel but not sure which would be best for my budget. I was thinking of AMD as its best bang for your buck but feel more inclined to go for Intel as they seem to utilise their parts more. This gaming pc will be used for playing games such as CSGO, GTA and PUBG. I won't be requiring an OS as I have a current spare windows 7. I won't be requiring any peripherals either as I will buy them seperately in the near future. Please guys could you help me out I am stuck :(

thank you guys

  1. Assuming you have monitor as well, this is about as good as it gets with that budget https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/list/DqxDLD

  3. You can upgrade to the I7-7700K but that is probably that. As it seems you will need new motherboard for next gen Intel Coffee Lake CPU, so if you can wait a couple of months i would recommend that, and then get the new 6 core I5-8600K and a new Z370 series chipset motherboard.
    There are rumors that motherboard manufactures will ujpdate the Z270 motherboards with a BIOS update to work with the new CPU, but that is only rumors and officially Intel has stated that current motherboards will not support the new generation CPU.

    ah I see, what about an AMD build would that be better for what I want or stick to intel?

  5. I think you can still get better bang for your buck with a ryzen build.

    this should last you much longer with a slightly more powerful gpu and more cores/threads with the cpu.

  6. For a pure gaming rig, I would go Intel as they are simply just faster.
    Also that RX580 GPU is noisy and runs hot, then better get a GTX 1060 which is about same performance.

    the 1060 is probably better than the 580, but the i5 and r5 1600 are actually similar in gaming

    No they are not. I5 wins in most games http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/amd-ryzen-5-1600-cpu,5073.html

  9. At exactly 800£ :D
    Looks like intel has the edge on gaming for now, perhaps in the future will have better use of more cores, but these days if you game only, Intel is the way to go.

  12. I'd still say ryzen especially if you're planning on upgrading, because the platform is new and there will probably be another 2 generations of amd cpus on am4
    Reply to blankcr8
  13. You won't need to upgrade your cpu for the next 2 generations anyway. From my first post https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/list/DqxDLD
    You can upgrade GPU to 6 GB version if your budget can take it.

  14. So are we all going with this Intel build as the answer? the only problem is that it doesnt have a case :o

    NO mate,I wouldn't - I would not build any intel i5 rig at this moment in time.
    It makes no sense.

    Ryzen 1600@4ghz on a $130 board with a $40 cooler vs an i7 7700k@4.9ghz on a $230 board with a $150 cooler.

    This is an upto date video from 3 days ago ,now ryzen has matured its far far better than benches people keep throwing up that are way way out of date.



    The first 5 minutes cover older benches that were run where the ryzens were getting eclipsed by both the i5 7600k & i7 7700k,after 5 minutes the new benches start.
    Things are vastly vastly different now - yes the i7 still generally wins ,not by a massive amount though.
    Remember this is $350 ryzen cpu/mb/cooler combo vs $650 worth of intel i7!!!
