Nothing I said regarding streaming was towards the OPs problem, I addressed that earlier on if you'd actually looked at the thread...

You could easily share a PC in some sense if you think about it with streaming, and work on saving up some for higher spec parts, and/or a second build.


Whatever you do on your PC, you'll have more to add/change over time anyway, and if you do it right in the start, then it all falls into place later on.

Intel's 8th gen is better for gaming than AMD's Ryzen.
Ryzen were made for professional work. That's where it thrives.

Let's start off with minimum requirements, most of the time the minimum requirements which are given out by the game developers rarely aims for even a 30 FPS. They will sometime give you some requirements that can run the game in < (less than) 30 FPS and won't mention it.

Whereas sometimes, some developers will give you minimum requirements for 30 or 60 FPS with lowest settings possible. So for example, take a look at this new battle-royale game called 'Radical Heights' - http://store.steampowered.com/app/80...dical_Heights/ - The developers clearly mentioned that the game can be ran at 1080p at lowest settings without any FPS rates, this possibly could mean that if you crank your settings down to 720p, you might get more FPS but there are no guarantees.

So don't build your rigs to what the developers mention in their minimum requirements!

The latest Ryzen APUs are good enough for gaming (to some extent - PS I've not tested anything It's just my knowledge from reading about tech 24/7), if you have lots of RAM since iGPUs or integrated graphic processors gain advantage over more system memory.
So for example, I've...

When I had 4gigs of memory I was able to run Fortnite with all settings on Low and Draw distance thing to Medium with 30-ish FPS. So I'm going to wait and save money to buy better RAMs and a GT1030 (since I think GTX1050 will bottleneck because of my CPU).

If you're on a budget, save more and purchase something better.

Do not spend too much on processor, games require a lot of video card and memory.

Few games require a lot of processor, like CS:GO, League of Legends...

Have you tried more modern games? Most games now is coded in 64bit and require more CPU and RAM, if you have DDR3 build it is now recommended to have minimum RAM MHz at 1600GHz and higher.
CS:GO isn't CPU demanding at all. Source engine is generally poorly optimized for quad cores and octa cores CPUs.

Most games won't even use all your cores. What your main aim should be buying the fastest memory, GPU and storage drives! Remember that games are now requiring more processing power and you need a fast enough processor that can handle your graphics card so you don't suffer from bottlenecking. CS GO don't even require much GPU or processor power and generally all Source engine games are poorly optimised same as the new CS GO maps.

First off go with something small. The one you have is more than enough to run games that were released till 2017 at a decent frame rate and of with reasonable graphics. Until last week, my build was a core2quad 3.1ghz, 8gb ddr2 ram, nvidia Gtx 750ti and I shit you not, it ran games smoothly that were released until the mid of 2017 at an average fps from 40-70 with graphical settings ranging from medium to high.

What I mean to say is; go for something small, you can always upgrade the components gradually and slowly. That's what I did. Directly going for high end rigs is pointless unless you have a lot in your pocket.

Just saying, spend more on the GPU than on the CPU for online games.

About CS:GO, the FPS gain in CS:GO is based almost entirely on CPU.
