I am looking to build a gaming first PC. I wanted some help choosing parts, fitting in a budget under $1,200. I have saved up some cash and want to create a good 1080p gaming rig that never drops below 60fps. I would like to get 144hz at 1080p? Do not know much about how far my budget can reach. I normally play COD and Minecraft.
I do not know much about graphics cards so please give me some insight if you have any! Should I wait for 30 series to be in stock later this year? or should I buy a used 20 series on ebay? Also if AMD has good graphics too let me know some good cards from them!
I already have a i9 macbook from 2019 so graphic design/video editing is a secondary on this PC, but it would be nice to freely run Adobe products at no problem.
Thank you for taking the time!
I've created a build for you with those specifications and budget in mind. Linked below
I'd recommend going with a 3060 Ti, but if you are looking for a 20 series, I'd recommend at least a 1660 Ti. I'd recommend a 2060 or 2070. If you wanted to go with an AMD GPU, I'd recommend an RX 570 but I'd suggest an RX 580 or 5600 XT.
I'd be happy to discuss this further if you have more questions!
