So what's the deal these days? My brother is looking to replace his aging computer with something, and fancies playing a few games - most likely some FPS games, pubg, that kind of thing. I'm pretty out of touch with the low price gear, and I've no idea what to recommend or put together for him. My gaming/general rubbish PC is still my 5820k with 12GB of ram (after the motherboard spat the other 4GB out - should probably re-seat the cpu and try to get it going again, but to be honest I've not noticed a performance change) and a 750ti. It runs everything I play on it, pretty much, so I figured any 3 year newer CPU has to at least match it?! The cheap Ryzen's are obviously appealing - the ryzen 3 1200 is super cheap for example... Or the 2200g, whatever the differences are (apart from onboard video, which wouldn't help me much here). And I imagined a 1050ti would give him a decent bit of longevity? I'd probably couple it with a cheaper nvme m2 drive to make the whole thing snappy. I've heard the i3's are better for gaming, but they're getting on for double the price of a cheap AMD.. What are folks general thoughts? I'd considered re-purposing my old core2quad machine too.. Get a cheap Q9650 cpu from ebay, pop in a bit of ram and pick up a cheap 1050ti somewhere.. But I doubt it'd be able to do much these days! Ta!
