Gaming PC Philippines: a 28k Budget Build Guide with Intel G4560 and GTX 1060
Hey GameBuildPC Builders! It’s been weeks since I posted my 25k Budget Build Guide. To be honest, that’s really insane. You guys really did a good job by posting your concerns and suggestions @ our FB page fb.com/gamebuildpc and below the comment section. I really appreciated it.
However, today we will discuss “what is a bottleneck” and how can it affect your gaming experience and the “worthiness” of your money (bring it on you grammar nazis. jk. keep smiling mate, just message me so I could correct it. Cheers!). Maybe some of you were thinking: “Kevin suggested the G4560 with B250m. Ok, since i7 are so expensive, I’ll just buy GTX1080 it is also compatible with B250m maybe I could combine them both. Hmm right, I’ll just grab G4560 and freakin plug my GTX1080 and Yessss! I can play everything!” Yep, I’m actually thinking that you’ve said that to yourself. Anyway, before diving into the depth of bottleneck topic, I’d like to talk about “is Kabylake really worth it?”.
Before the release of Kabylake in the market, I was highly negative with the rumors that i7-7700k will outperform its predecessor i7-6800k and like what I’ve expected, the rumors turned out to be nonsense. You might say, what about… Optane? Optane is not really useful to almost anyone yet right? Intel would like to give us an opportunity to become a member of PC master race again after G3258, Intel G4560: A gift for budget builders.
Let’s look at the numbers here courtesy to Tech Spot:
As you can see in GTX 1050 Ti level, the GPU is the bottleneck for the rest of the CPU. Sorry folks from the facebook comments but the G4560 and GTX 1050Ti might work but you may want to consider buying GTX 1050 or RX470 instead (due to its price/performance ratio) or just get GTX 1060. Moving up to the GTX 1060, the G4560 starts to bottleneck and if you try to drop the settings down to low – high quality, you might get a bit of increase in FPS. By the time you paired a GTX 1080 to our G4560, here’s the result. Obviously, it doesn’t make sense to plug GTX 1080 if we’re just using G4560. so clearly, – sky isn’t the limit.
But like what I’ve experienced with my GTX 960 and G3258, Overwatch isn’t that much demanding.
For those folks Gaming in Low – High Quality isn’t an issue, G4560 paired with GTX 1060 or GTX 1050 Ti (kung makulit ka pa din) .. is absolutely playable.
So without further ado, here’s a more or less 28k budget build guide for you using a G4560 with GTX 1060:
