    Default PC build suggestion needed for playing old games

    Hi everyone,

    i am planning to build a pc for playing old games like from 2006 to 2014 period at 1080p resolution. all the parts will be bought 2nd hand and i will reuse some of my leftover parts. budget is as low as possible as it will be used very little. parts i require
    • processor
    • motherboard
    • cooling solution
    • ram
    • gpu
    • power supply


    now question is which processor/ mobo combo will serve me best? i didnt use amd processors for a very long time. second hand core i5/ mobo price is high (what i see in the facebook buying/selling groups). comparatively 2nd hand amd processor/mobo prices are low. as i dont have any idea regarding amd processors & motherboards, i cant decide which way to go. gpu will be a geforce 960 or equivalent in below 10k range. any suggestion is welcome. thanks in advance.

    Go with core i3 second generation(sandy bridge),mobo socket 1155 ,processor now sold for 3,500-4000 also you can upgrade to i5 2400 in future with 2000 tk more .

    buy from shakil tech they can give you warranty on their second hand product .no special cooling solution needed ,psu 900 tk power logic magnum pro ,gpu wait & buy from bikroy ,look for gtx 1050 .ram 4 gb of anything (bikroy) ,GPU Is the Most Important part you can't go cheap on it even if its 1000 more than your budget ,so wait & buy atleast gtx 1050

    Some time in Bikroy,Ekhanei You can get full core i3 PC with few months warranty left within 10k ,those are best deal ,so wait & keep searching till those ads pop up .Stay away from first generation core i3 550 ,560 ,socket is 1156 those are the crappiest core i3

    i am biased to 1050ti over 1050 because of price/perf ratio. and 470 is even better but not in BD... 19k lol where 1050ti is like 13k i think


    having said that 1050ti is enough for ultra 1080p 2014 games.... most games... maybe not watch doge with unlock texture mod, but mordor will run fine, but if u are extreme poor 1050 is fine, but below that i dont think bd has good first hand cards ..... check shops for 370 r7 though i think they are market out and i care about price/perf ratio.


    so 1050 and 1050ti or... soon to be released 560 rx.

    cpu pentium new G processor is absolutely fine for shadowmordor

    mobo 5k


    24k


    psu ram 8gb hdd 1tb 11k


    35k

    case 2k


    oh wait u dont need case and hdd.


    btw if u can buy 2nd hand u can get lot cheaper.... i think r9 270 which is lot slower than 1050ti but still more than enough for 2014 games. but anything below r9 270 1080p wont be that good but u can still play2014 games at medium to medium low witha r7 260x

    just ask yourself this is 2k17 why you need urban day pc which have zero chance for upgrade or customize with the latest one ?


    get the 7th gen g4560 processor which have the support from hyper threading which means they are as fast as recent days i3's or bit slower but more than enough to run games , might cost you 4.5k

    with that saying get a decent h110 or b150 motherboard would be a great choice with that processor. it will give the room for ddr4 rams and you can upgrade m2 ssds if you have plan for the future upgrade , price 6k (you can go further for better b150 or b250 motherboards your choice)

    8gb ddr4 ram within 6k , gskill rgbs might cost you 500 taka more may be

    gtx 1050ti zotac or gigabyte might cost you 13k which doesn't require any extra psu or if you already have gtx 960 then grab antec vp450w might cost you 4k

    sensei's 2cent : there is no meaning of buying old parts and build to run older games , the latest parts are cheap efficient and also supports the future upgrade . you might buy them right now on tight budget but they will also give you the room to upgrade in future . Plus you might not get the alternative parts like motherboard or branded rams easily for 2nd gen processors as they are already on declining stage so newer is the better . I can guarantee you these 7th gen dual core processor's are gems . they can run any games from last 5 years plus they also have the capacity to hold for even 2 more years

    hypothetically speaking : it depends on him, if he buys a 20k laptop which can play all 2012 games and esports game good 1080p and thats enough for him, but its not possible so he might wanna look into 2nd hand haswell ivy bridges with cheap gpu at 20-30k which is enough for 2014 1080p 45 fps

    If you're into buying second hand, then I'd suggest probably seek out for a skylake i5 with a good mobo and DDR4 memory. Memory is the issue here since it's price has gotten up recently. As for PSUs I think cheaper options are around like Corsair V450s, Antec or Thermaltake TR2 ( make sure you check for OEM, am guessing UCC is still bringing the wrong ones )

    As for GPU, well just get an RX 560 if you can or manage to cough up more cash for a GTX 1050 Ti

    thanks for the suggestion guys. but you all missed the main point. the sole purpose of this thread was building another pc with old hardware capable of playing 2006-2014 games. my current pc is more than capable of running all the games and as now i have 2 6tb harddisks, if i want i can store all the games and play any time. main reason for buying old parts is that many games from 2006-2010 dont like newer hardware. i cant play assassins creed, old Diablo 2, command & conquer generals dont run on my pc.

    @djrock , are you sure that 2nd gen core i3/i5 processor/mobo combos are that cheap? i didnt see anyone selling below 10k in the groups. what about amd equivalents?

    I haven't used those amd ,also older Amd is less powerful compare to Intel ,though Amd will give more core but i3 is still way more powerful but there maybe some Fx which can give you better performance than Intel ,older amd cpu are rare to find also amd mobo will be hard to replace with another second hand one as they are rare in BD

    ac 1 doesnt run on new hardware? really?? O_o i played ac2 in win10... i am skeptical of the things u are telling me. but i admit diablo 2 and some oldergames like old splinter cell and fallout 2/3 have problems with windows10.. but i dont think its h/w aka. kaby lake issue at all, more like an OS compatibility issue. i played generals with skylake i think but i havent used it with windows 10 iirc.
