For Easy Play and Work as a Noob

Hi. Im new here. Im trying to build a PC for Black Desert Online, 1080p, average 60fps on HIGH settings, or at least 30fps on ULTRA. I also play LoL, which wont be a problem(why did i even mention that. lol). I plan to do a little bit of software development as well, plus photo/video editing but is not priority. Im on budget too. trying to put it under C$1000 including monitor and GPU. I might use this setup as well on a huge TV from time to time. so the monitor is just there to give me an idea of how much it will cost me if im going to build a whole set. i already have a mouse, i didnt include the keyboard here bec i can just purchase it anytime.

Heres a link to the build im planning to make: https://ca.pcpartpicker.com/list/8TFZMZ

Is there anyways to make it a little bit cheaper? or other ways to improve the performance?

any feedback is appreciated. thank you

Changes:

  • Better ram
  • Better gpu
  • Better Motherboard
  • Better power supply
  • Better ssd
  • Cheaper/equivilant monitor
  • Cheaper overall

Suggestions to add later on:

  • save $70 and get another stick of ram

Seeing as left like $85 out of the budget you could either upgrade the monitor or get some more ram

(after tax price is $1030)

Try this.

The only things I swapped was CPU, RAM, and GPU.

The GPU I swapped to a used model from ebay.ca. You can find them for about $150 CAD which saved a bunch of money in the budget.

With the money I saved from the GPU I went with a 2600 over the 2200g. You get 2 extra cores and 3x the threads. This should help in multitasking as well as gaming.

The RAM you need to switch even if you don't buy a used GPU and go back to the 2200g. Ryzen scales with RAM speed and bandwidth. Going from 2666 to 3200 will see a noticeable improvement in most tasks, and going from single channel to dual channel (double the bandwidth available) will be huge.

Everything else looks good. Let me know if you have any questions!
