Ryzen Gaming PC: 30k Budget Build Guide with 1050Ti

Ryzen Gaming PC: 30k Budget Build Guide with 1050Ti

Hi GameBuildPC Builders! Welcome to our new Gaming PC Build Guide. Today, we will discuss something we’re all waiting for. Here it is, a 30k quad(4)-core Ryzen Gaming PC with 1050Ti Budget Build for 2017!

Oops, hold on for a sec. Before diving into the build guide, I’d like to discuss few things with you, my personal ideas and some facts I’ve researched. You might be thinking “Kevin, what is the big deal about the new AMD’s Ryzen CPU? Is it just a hype? or what?” Well to answer that, here’s my few thoughts about the new Ryzen CPUs.

You might consider it a hype but personally, it’s not a hype or what. To cut it short, it just proved that these CPUs (Ryzen 5 and 7) can nearly compete with Intel’s i5 and i7 processors. Yes, not in today’s standard but Ryzen has a promising future development that can overcome its competitor in upcoming years.

“But for how long?” you might ask.

So we can expect more future upgrades and DDR5 RAM support!

You see, based on popular benchmarks out there, Gaming in Ryzen 7 1700 can’t beat the Intel’s i7 7700k in specific games but in terms of rendering? Ryzen used as workstation is faster compare to i7 7700k!

Workstation with Ryzen Source: GamersNexus

Recent AAA games are designed to work with Intel’s processors, threading, memory cache, etc. So gaming developers are now seeing AMD’s Ryzen as a resource to make their games optimized and make use its additional cores for better performance.

Gaming with Ryzen Source: PCPer

As concluded by PCPer, “Gaming performance isn’t anything to scuff about, especially for an 8-core 16-thread CPU that beats the i7 7700K in almost all non-gaming benchmarks. For pure gaming though, single-thread and higher clock performance is still king.”

So here’s a couple things you need to consider when buying Ryzen. Before typing any non-related comments, I know some of you do. I’d suggest to read this and comment down below your ideas and suggestions so we can learn together as we go along with it.

  1. Ryzen CPU is not for everyone. If you are an enthusiast PC builder(for workstation and gamer), the good spot for you is the Ryzen 7 1700 and 1800x series. I know that i7 7700k is a bit cheaper and you might want to consider buying it because it will give you more FPS on recent AAA games compare to Ryzen 1700. But if you look closely, 1700 has a huge room for future development having its 8-cores and 12 threads. While a 4-cores cpu might not.
  2. If you just want a fair performance, as we called performance-wise PC Builder. Ryzen 5 1600 is the best for you. With its 6-cores and 12 threads will easily overcome the i5 series and almost beat the i7 processor in some games.
  3. if you want Ryzen right now that could fit with your allocated budget which is less than 30k, You might want to consider having Ryzen 5 1400. A quad-core 8 threads that can compete with i5 7400 & 7600 by having more threads but less money to spend.
