Estimate cost for 60FPS 1080p gaming build WITH OS

#11RunFromThisGunPosted 7/18/2014 4:21:56 PM
For all games to run at 1080p 60 FPS maxed out you need at least one GTX 780 which at the lowest I believe is a little over $500.

You will need a solid CPU to keep up with it so if you skimp on everything else a little over a grand should do it.

You'll be able to max *almost* every game for like 600 or 700 dollars. Maxing EVERY game is extremely different and can be impossible on bad console ports like Saints Row 2, I don't think it's even possible to get 60 FPS in that game no matter how good your hardware is.

You'll be able to max pretty much every non broken game for like 900 or 1000 for sure though. The top five or ten hardest to run games are really hard to run, even compared to other high end games with fantastic graphics

almost at 600? doubt it if he wants a proper cpu.

700 isd pushing it. i just built a decent one for a friend for 800. i5-4460 , Radeon r9 270x and 8gb of ram with a quaility PSU and case.

honestly itll be 900-1000$ if he wants ALL games ultra.

High you can get away with 700-800$ build easy though

Which games are we talking about?
Some games won't run at 60fps unless you sli/xfire higher tier gpus.

And, of course, some games won't run at 60fps no matter what due to cpu limitations (mostly MMOs, though).

This would max almost every game ever made, probably like 90% of the PC gaming selection, but it's not going to max the higher end stuff. Most games aren't that hard to max though. It will play any game out on at least low, and should be able to do medium or even high on most high end games.

Don't get me wrong though, that computer still sucks, it's only got 4 gigs of RAM that's not even 1600 MHz and a small harddrive, but for a 600 dollar budget it's a lot better than the PS4 and Xbox One and would suffice for people who aren't trying to max out the Crysis series and other high end games.


I just noticed your build, this one actually has almost the same power as the one you built for a friend, just a worse case and RAM, but power wise it's pretty similar.

It's more important to ask what he means by max. To me, Max is all of the graphics on the highest at 1080p or higher, and getting at least 30 fps, preferably 60 fps. It's not hard at all to just run a game at max settings at 720p at 30 fps if that's all he wants

To be fair, there's technical max and maxing with 95% of options on that looks 99% the same as the uber system-killer option. Usually when people refer to the max, its the latter (perhaps with some mods added). The former is when you get to system overkill/rapidly escalating system requirements, especially since he's going to stick at 1080p.

$1000 would be pretty average.

However if you use BF4 or Crysis 3 as your benchmark, it'll be more like $1500.
