  • Christmas/New Year Build

    Hi all,

    I am being nagged at to get myself a PC to play a game with a few mates and have been thinking of looking at building one for a while now.

    The game they play is Player Unknown Battleground and if possible I would like to run Lightroom and Photoshop on it to.

    Now im not after anything to fancy really just something that will cope well enough, I dont see myself upgrading it all the time for the next new game and stuff like that.

    I would however like it as small as I can get it in size wise.

    Now I havent built or looked a building a PC in about a good 8 to 10 years so not a clue whats out there and whats good or not good, also at the moment I have no price in mind but would like it cheap ish lol

    The specs of each thing I want to run, what would people recommend for a case, mobo, CPU and graphic card? Memory, drive and that stuff doesnt really change so I can figure that out myself but the other stuff now a clue whats about.

    Thanks

    SPECS -
    Lightroom

      PUBG is a tough game to run well at the minute, very unoptimised, so don't scrimp on GPU or CPU grunt. I don't think you will get a very satisfactory experience on an i3.

      Probably best thing is for you to give a budget and we can try to squeeze the best parts into it.

        As Joshimitsu says PUBG is very unoptimized and depending on your settings can run terribly even on good systems, for instance I play it with a i7 3770k and a 980ti and most settings are ultra but a couple have to be set to very low or FPS randomly drops through the floor.

        As both Photoshop and Lightroom seem to scale well with more powerful CPU's it may be worth considering something like the Ryzen 5 1600 instead of the 1200 if it's inside of your budget range.

        Motherboard wise if you were using Ryzen one of the b350 chipset boards such as this would work fine and allow you to use a smaller case.

          I get around 50-60fps with my 4Ghz 2500K and 970 and 8GB RAM on High, lags loads for a couple of seconds when it saves clips using the Nvidia Shadowplay software though which can be a round ender if it happens at the wrong moment!

          Also, add me on Steam and we can be PUBG friends also! Cypher2139

              I also run a i5 2500k @ 4 GHz and a 980Ti, frame rate can be as high as 125 fps (in sparse areas or on low visibility weather maps) or can drop to 40 fps on the lobby island. Overclocking the CPU helped as did upgrading from a R9 290 GPU. However when you're used to 250+ fps in CS:GO the frame rates in PUBG can be seriously annoying.

              I definitely think you want an i5 or Ryzen 1600. Heard good things about the latter (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4RMbYe4X2LI) but given that 8th gen Intel chips just launched you might want to look at those or look for a deal on a 7th gen as they're sold off.

                    It's made for NVIDIA cards at the minute, with AMD struggling to play it well. Even on my 1080, I still only get about 70 to 90 FPS on ultra at 1080P with the GPU at 95 to 99% load. I need to tweak the settings, but haven't got round to it yet.

                      That's absolute bare minimum, lowest settings, probably lucky if you can manage 30fps...

                      Ideally you want to be looking at something more like an i5 7600/Ryzen 5 1600, 8-16GB RAM, GTX 1060 or better. As TMDD points out, don't bother with AMD graphics cards.
