Build outs for gaming machines for IL2

Recommended Posts

Here is my recommended build out for a game ready minimum machine.  If you wish to make the challenge please state your source for the parts.  Remember this is a complete build out from nothing to working.  I use Newegg as the prices don't change a whole lot in a short amount of time.  I hope some of you will challenge this and give a complete build out for a game ready system.  For those needing to build a system I hope you will look at this and even if you can't buy everything at once start with anything and buy component by component.  Start with the case, Then the motherboard,  and work your way down the list.  My Intel build goes as follows, Here goes nothing.......

 

RAIDMAX Vortex V3 ATX-403WB Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case $34.87

GIGABYTE Z390 UD LGA 1151 (300 Series) Intel Z390 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 ATX Intel Motherboard  $114.99

Intel Core i5-9400F Coffee Lake 6-Core 2.9 GHz (4.10 GHz Turbo) LGA 1151 (300 Series) 65W BX80684I59400F Desktop Processor Without Graphics$174.99

G.SKILL Ripjaws V Series 16GB (4 x 4GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 2400 (PC4 19200) Desktop Memory Model F4-2400C15Q-16GVR $89.99

GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 1050 Ti DirectX 12 GV-N105TD5-4GD 4GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 ATX Video Cards $179.99

Cooler Master MWE Gold 750 Watt Fully Modular, Compact, Silent Fan 80 PLUS Gold Power Supply $84.99

Western Digital WD BLACK SN750 NVMe M.2 2280 500GB PCI-Express 3.0 x4 64-layer 3D NAND Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) WDS500G3X0C
 (9)  $104.99

Western Digital Black WD2002FAEX 2TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive $81.19

LG Electronics 14X SATA Blu-ray Internal Rewriter without Software, Black Model WH14NS40 - OEM $59.99

Windows 10 Home - 64-bit - OEM  $109.99

BASELINE build cost  $1035.98  Without the M.2 module for instant on $930.99

Recommended updates to system build

Rosewill RDCR-11004 - Data Hub for 5.25" Drive Bays - Two USB 3.0 Ports and Main Connector, Four USB 2.0 Ports, eSATA, Internal Multiple Card 
Reader  $27.99

WD Black 4TB Performance Desktop Hard Disk Drive - 7200 RPM SATA 6Gb/s 256MB Cache 3.5 Inch - WD4005FZBX $164.99

Total build out with sub of 4Tb drive for 2TB drive  $1147.77

 

Again hope someone will build out and AMD machine but it must go from scratch.  For those needing a full system start with the basics and work it up.  Get a case to put it in.  Then get a Mother board to build it on.  After that it's just component hunting time.  If you've never built a computer before then you don't know how easy it really is to build one.  You feel like God when it fires up the first time.

I would revise motherboard, case and storage based on your preferences

this graphics card is significantly faster than the 1050Ti and the processor in in the same league. the SSD is slower than the WD black above but 3 to 6 times faster than HDD and 2 to 3 times faster than a sata ssd. the 650 power supply is fine for this setup based on me running the 290x on a 650w power supply without issues. i would keep the m.2 module at the cost of other stuff except the graphics card. imo the starting point is the graphics card then the m.2 storage, processor then fill in the parts.

I would not consider this to be a low end system, it should be capable of single screen 1080p at min of 50FPS

any way just IMO

just from my perspective AMD is better in performance / $ at the low to mid range but Intel invida owns the top end (for now)

my rig is AMD graphics (but looking to go invida in the future) and intel CPU.

Thanks C5.  That's an interesting build.  About a $40.00 difference.  Hex core 2.9 intel V hex core 3.6 AMD systems.  I haven't used an AMD GPU in a long time (Radeon 5830) on a windows 7 machine.  And yes I've heard some very good things about the Ryzen processors on Linus Tech Tips so I wouldn't doubt it being a fast mofo.

Again something to look at for anyone building or needing a new system.  Better to build than buy a box.

HOLY CRAP!!! HUGE SALE AT NEWEGG!!!!

Sale ends Friday night 5/3 at midnight Pacific time zone.

example

Intel 660p Series M.2 2280 2TB PCI-Express 3.0 x4 3D NAND Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) SSDPEKNW020T8X1  $189.99

Western Digital WD BLACK SN750 NVMe M.2 2280 500GB PCI-Express 3.0 x4 64-layer 3D NAND Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) WDS500G3X0C  $99.90

Just about everything C5 and I have on our lists is an additional $5.00 to $10.00 off  Some even more.  If you don't have a Newegg account at least get one just to sign up for the newsletters.  You never know when and what they are having a sale on.  Just our rigs alone are close to $100.00 off just from this sale.  C5s AMD system close to $900.00  My Intel system close to $950.00

Big box and retail can't compare to the systems performance when it's completed.

we have all been in the spot where the available funds are severely limited and these builds are mid to high level for running IL2, so for anyone that this is out of your budget let me or Ogg know and we can probably find you a solution that is within your budget. there are also used parts floating around the squad, I usually just donate my old rig when i upgrade. so speak up if anyone needs help.

AMD RYZEN 3 1200 4-Core 3.1 GHz (3.4 GHz Turbo) Socket AM4 65W YD1200BBAEBOX Desktop Processor  $69.99

 

no frills low end 720p machine that i would expect to maintain 50FPS and total cost is $540.55

you could even drop $20 off of it by going to a RX 560 graphic card but the 570 makes it possible to do 1080p (with possible issues) .

there is no HDD in this rig but 500GB SSD will be enough to game and other things just no recording.

My current rig only has 240GB SSD for all my games and OS just use the HDD for recording.

I own a 1 TB Intel 660 and unless I’m running bench marks I can’t tell a difference between it and my 1TB EVO 970.  I highly recommend them even the 500 GB Version is a steal.

 You can pick up a windows 10 professional key off of eBay for less than five dollars. I picked mine up offer there and have had no issues with it this far.

the truth is that a slow  SSD is about 3 times faster than the fastest HDD

Good builds everyone. For those of you who do not want to build your own I bought a pre-built gaming computer from best buy. Got it for $1199

https://www.bestbuy.com/site/cyberpowerpc-gamer-master-gaming-desktop-amd-ryzen-7-series-16gb-memory-nvidia-geforce-rtx-2070-2tb-hdd-240gb-ssd-white/6315148.p?skuId=6315148

It goes on sale often and has some good stuff in it. The only thing I had to add was a better CPU cooler the one they put in it was crap. Runs real strong.
