Opinion on mid-range 1080p build?

Hello, I’m looking to build a 1080p build that can last me a few years at least before I need to upgrade. I mostly play games like CSGO, R6 Siege, GTAV, and Red Dead Redemption 2. I am looking to hit at least 60fps in games for a few years to come and I am fine with using lower graphics settings in game.

I put together a computer that I think will do the trick, however I wanted to get an opinion from people who build computers as a hobby.

I also picked some ram on amazon, but I couldn’t find it on PCPP: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07WF9MH7S/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_jeCYDb5QV8CF4

Let me know if I can make any changes to make this system better or cheaper. Thanks! :)

Honestly, the only game that you should consider to make a build around it, is RDR2, as it's very heavy on the GPU.

And unfortunately the RX 590 will not cut it.

I am looking to hit at least 60fps

With the RX 590, I'm afraid you will not be able to.

You may hit 60 fps at instances, but that will be an average value.

fps will go as low as 35 maybe 40 in a lot of areas.

Unless you tweak the details to a lower value or even play with medium settings.

And with that being said, what's your available budget for the build?

Note: The 1660Ti is a better option, but you will still deep below the 50s even with that GPU.

Some benchmarks so you can see what's going on.

At least a RTX 2060 and tweaked settings, for getting more than 60fps with the most of the game.

I actually have the 1660 Super in my part list. I am trying to hit 60fps in Red Dead with a mix of medium/high settings.

My budget is around $600 but I am willing to go a little over if necessary. I already have a 500gb 860 Evo SSD as well as a monitor and peripherals so those do not need to be budgeted in.

Thanks for the reply!

Thanks for the suggestions! How would that motherboard do for upgradeability? Is there anything I need to watch out for in terms of power delivery or slot sizes/speed or anything like that?

Also is that particular version of the 5700 any good? It’s priced way lower than most other variants.

Theoretically that board should be able to drive an 3900X (stock) without throttling.

For additional features you should take a look at the manufacturers homepage of that board.
