The T480 is still expensive
If you really just want to stream from your xbox, this should do the trick PCPartPicker Part List
However, with the max budget you mentioned, you can build a faster PC that can play the games, be able to stream them, and have money to spare for new games, like this: PCPartPicker Part List
look in the used market
Those get pretty expensive for decent performance
a 2080 is quite overkill for a 1080p 144hz display, consider getting a 1080p 240hz display, or a 1440p 165hz display, or downgrading to an RTX 2060 or a Radeon 5700
seems good to me, the Phanteks P300 looks more modern and costs a similar amount if that's your thing
Considering you can probably get a good $80-100 USD off the 1600, the switch to the 3600 would be quite beneficial, and the faster speeds might be able to squeeze out a couple more frames through your GTX 1080
A Ryzen 3700 or an i7 9700k, depends on what combo is cheaper
What games will she be playing? depending on her needs we might be able to lower the budget significantly
It could already play rainbow 6, but if you're using a 2070 I would get a 240hz monitor to get the best experience
300 series motherboards
no, the SSD is too small for games
You need an operating system
This aged poorly
what is the point of this?
as long as it's a good one, yes
If you want a cool GPU, just buy a higher end card with a better cooler
it's a 10 year old group regulated PSU, it's not suitable for modern machines
but can it run Final Fantasy?
I don't agree with Marxist ideas, but he did make some good points and he had the courage to speak out
This hobby would make me poor tbh, I'll stick with computers for now
We must now call black holes "Orange Rings"
and more dangerous PSUs
Why do you want to watercool a midrange card that can't even be used in SLI?
the Seasonic M12II Bronze series is very outdated and shouldn't be used in a modern build, however modern SeaSonic supplies are good
A little? It's $100 over the budget and isn't even able to output video
It wouldn't hurt to try going to a best buy or something of the sort, and seeing if you can get a feel for various switches, they usually have some keyboards out for display purposes
It's going to be nice to have when you have discord, reddit, youtube, and your game all open at once (can actually be pretty common), ram prices are plummeting anyways
The difference between having the os on a hard drive and using the SSD is night and day, games load quicker too
Not counting taxes (Indiana 7% used as a sample) here's something that is plenty powerful, I would suggest picking a used case you might have lying around over the placeholder I used
PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant
I still think $15-30 isn't enough, considering factors like turbo boost, and decent logic. I would spend $45 minimum for both processors
not like you're gonna find a cheap cooler to cool it
What better CPU can you get for $100?
I would suggest cutting down some lawns for extra money, for the best experience
but why do you want to run 1070 sli?
Finding one is pretty hard
can't wait for AMD and Intel to counter
This build is optimized for US/EU/AU markets, which explains the part selection, and PCPP doesn't have Newegg India as far as I can tell
I'm not too religious, but I know this person is going to have a special visit with Satan
The cloud is just another computer
