1000$ Gaming PC build

I want to build a PC purely for gaming purposes in a 1000$. The budget should include a gaming monitor. I will add a SSD later on so don't include that Also I am ready to get a cheap low capacity HDD so i can get better performance parts. I want it for 1080p gaming. I have heard many good things about AMD ryzen and would not mind building a ryzen system.

  1. Apparantly Intel Is better for gaming. I built a Ryzen 5 1500X system. Not working yet due to problems but it should work great for 1080p gaming.

    According to Linus Tech Tips, Intel is for gaming, Ryzen is for streaming/video editing. Anything you get should be good.


    I would go for GTX 1060 6gb.

  2. Are you in India? Will you be purchasing the parts from a specific place or is any online store ok?

    What games do you want to play? Is a monitor and operating system also to be included in the $1000 budget? Do you want to go for a 144hz monitor/gaming rig?

    Intel vs AMD does not really matter much, its only a few FPS and is title dependent. Whatever you can get for the best price will work well. Focus on getting the best GPU for your money by putting the largest part of your budget towards it.

  3. LOL. We can still help you to select good components if you tell us how you plan to use the PC.

  4. Yeah @Jester I'm in Mumbai,India. I will purchase the parts from whatever I can get them cheapest. I've already selected a 75hz 1080p monitor and acquired an OS so my budget is now about 900 USD or 63,000 Indian Rupees. I plan on using it for playing the latest Triple A titles.

  8. Feel free to customize the build if you wish. The Case is obviously something that needs to fit your tastes.
    Reply to Jester Maroc
  9. What do you recommend @jester AMD or Intel. I plan on using it for pure gaming purposes only literally nothing else.
    Reply to Sidhant Mehta
  10. If I could choose one of these it would be the Ryzen build...but they will provide very similar performance. To be honest the Intel will probably win with average and maximum fps, while the Ryzen will probably win with the highest minimums.

    Minimums are what is most noticeable while gaming, and yet most people focus on average and maximum fps when buying.

    EDIT: Not agreed anymore...
    Thanks for chirping in and helping ;) but I do not agree that the CX M series is better...

  13. So I put together a build with whatever was cheaper in my country. Please have a look and tell me how it is.
    CPU:AMD Ryzen 5 1500X Processor
    Motherboard:Gigabyte GIGABYTE GA-A320M-HD2
    GPU:Zotac Amp Edition GeForce GTX 1060 6GB DDR5
    Ram:Corsair Vengeance 8GB DDR4 LPX 2400MHz C16 RAM Kit
    PSU:Corsair CP-9020098-UK VS Series VS650 650 Watt Power Supply Unit
    Reply to Sidhant Mehta
  14. Never cheap on the PSU, and I don't suggest cheaping on motherboard either. I suggest sticking with a b250 motherboard, like the one suggested, and a better quality PSU like the Corsair CX450M

    EDIT:

    Actually, I do not like Rexpers PSU either, sorry. It is not a very good unit. Regarding the MB, I feel the A320M series is good enough...

  17. The issue with the units suggested by you guys is that I will recieve no warranty in India as it is imported. Will the PSU I picked out do alright or will it cause problems?
    Reply to Sidhant Mehta
  18. And also what is the problem with the motherboard I picked out?
    Reply to Sidhant Mehta
  19. What about this PSU

    Reply to Sidhant Mehta
  20. Sidhant, the PSU will work but it is not the best PSU. If you read through Tom's list and guide you will notice the risks mentioned. However, I am also using a poor PSU in my build since I purchased it many years ago before learning about good and bad PSU's So, the PSU you picked can work. I have never had any problems with my PSU and my build is about 5 years old.

    In the same way some motherboards are better than others. The AB350 series are great MB's that can be OC'd and are not likely to cause any problem. The A320M series is not as good, but I think it is still good enough.

    Please don't use tier lists. They are filled with flaws. One example is it not including the new CXM units, which are actually better than the s12 ii / m12ii PSUs.

  23. Hi.

    I have a very very important advice for you.

    Make sure everything is compatible. Don't even bother if its not on a compatibility list. If a part is faulty or it doesn't work, the company you bought it from will say its not on the compatibility list and wont even bother about it. Just a tip.

    I also suggest getting a SSD. It'll be a heap better. Just load the operating system and a couple games onto it.
