New PC Parts

So it’s official I’m getting a Ryzen 5 1500x with a GTX 1060 6gb, 16gb ddr4 ram Corsair Vengeance LPX and Asus B350-F ROG STRIX, so I was watching benchmarks on YouTube and saw some sketchy FPS like in GTA V all Ultra he was pulling like 40-60FPS is that good for a budget build like mine and in PUBG I was getting mixed FPS on different vids and I was wondering if I played PUBG on like high-medium would I be able to get a solid steady 60 FPS. And it general would I be able to run most games High-Ultra settings 60FPS steady and no I won’t have it loaded on a SSD I’m getting one soon though. ( sorry for not good grammar I was ina rush)

    None of what you posted has any context without knowing what resolution those craptube videos were running at with that hardware, OR, what resolution YOU plan to run at, which you neglected to mention.

    So, at 1080p with that CPU and graphics card you should be able to pull a pretty steady 60fps on MOST titles on high or ultra settings, but there are going to be some scenarios where open world multi-player gaming changes the whole thing. You've got to keep in mind that many of those craptube videos you see are either doctored or are being run in single player mode. In the same game, with the same hardware, at the same resolution, if you run into a situation where there is a lot of population or other players involved, you probably will see significant decreases in performance.

    Mostly though, you should be ok with that hardware at 1080p. Over 1080p and you're going to have to drop settings significantly in some cases. In other cases it may still do fine with fairly high settings at 1440p. Clearly this is not 4k hardware so we won't even bother going into that.
  2. I find the YouTube bashing is a bit much. Sure there IS a lot of crap posted on YouTube, but for the most part the ones showing gameplay benches on certain spec are fairly accurate. Most of the time I'm on the fence about whether a game will run on my i7-950 and 7970, the YouTube benches are pretty much spot on, including with newer games like Ghost Recon Wildlands.

    Sure there are a small percentages of exceptions, but YouTube is a great tool for checking such things if you know what to trust and what to disregard. You just need to pay extreme attention to detail, and make sure they show all the settings they use and what part of the game they're playing.
  3. Ok. Glad you feel that way. I don't.

    I do agree that there is a LOT of accurate information on there. No argument there. I also feel there is an EQUAL amount of garbage and faked data. Actually, I don't just FEEL that way, that is the way it IS.

    And it's not JUST gaming benchmarks and hardware related testing. Fake livestreams of concerts and events. Fake political BS. Fake/copycat personalities. The list goes on and on.

    In fact, not long ago Youtube did a purge and pulled BILLIONS, yes, not millions, BILLIONS of faked videos from practically every imaginable interest area you can think of. I could post pages of articles talking about the problem, but why bother. You'll believe what you want just like most people and you are not wrong in your belief that there are still good informational sources there, it's just that you need to be highly selective about what you actually take as gospel and what you have to take with a grain of salt. Or a glass of something else to wash the taste out of your mouth afterwards.
  4. Just sounds like you're focusing so much on the bad instead of the good that you are totally disregarding what a useful tool it can be. People say the same about eBay, and I've seen some refuse to use it after getting burned, yet when I ask them a few questions about how they used the site, it's clear they don't know how. An old Mark Twain quote comes to mind, "Common sense is not so common".
  5. I'm not disregarding anything. I'm also not ignoring obvious things either.

    When you use blanket words like "craptube" videos, and saying you disagree with me when I point out YouTube does have videos that can be used to assess such things, actually, I think you DO disregard quite a lot. You left nothing but an impression that YouTube can't be trusted, rather than clarifying like I did that one just needs to know what to disregard. It comes off as sounding more smug and biased than factual like you tried to make it sound.
  7. I owe a lot to YouTube. My MP3 player is filled with tracks going back nearly sixty years when I started out in my working life. I worked in Europe a lot and I've found foreign music from those days that I hear every time I get in my car.

    On the other hand, I've come across a lot of less helpful videos when checking links here in Tom's. There are some very odd opinions in there but there's good and bad in most things.

    ^This, any free service that gets massively popular is always going to get exploited by those whom look to abuse it for profit. It's not hard to differentiate the fake videos from the useful ones though. Any experienced gamer can easily tell the difference.
  9. You're assuming that most of the people who come here asking for very basic advice are experienced gamers. Most of them are not, which is why they are here asking basic, fundamental questions that you or I, or most who are, would have no need to ask in the first place.

    But I'll grant you that, as I said before, there are plenty of useful Youtube videos. I just also think there are equally plenty of BS ones too.

    I'm not assuming anything, it's just that you don't become an "experienced gamer" by buying into blanket statements, which is why I felt it necessary to explain that YT is not "CrapTube" if you just learn some basics on how to use it. That quite frankly is far easier than becoming an experienced gamer btw.

    I'm not going to keep bantering back and forth with you on this, and I'll never agree with you that the current state of YouTube is equal parts BS and useful. So if you really want to "Drop it", I suggest you do the same. I didn't even address my last post to you, yet here you are acting like it was aimed at you again.
