Normally I don’t ask this kinda question, but after some hunting about… seems I am very out of touch in the tech world…
My lady friend has asked if I can look into a Gaming PC for her son, he is autistic so games are a good focus for him (though patience, is not his forte heh. Though he LOVES fortnite) He is big into gaming on his XB1, but is wanting more and wants to have a go at streaming and video editing. It could be a fad, but its something he has been asking about for longer than normal, so she wants to see how much it would cost for a semi decent gaming machine that he could experiment with and learn about game streaming, video work etc.
Now to my lil part, Ive built PC’s (used to be a part time job) but Ive been going on a build and there is allot of new things to consider, the tech has come along way since I last looked. I know I can sort one, but thought to cast my net wide so to speak and see if you awesome folks could lend me some ideas or directions? As id like to try to entice him into this, I also want to engage him in the build of it too (she requested lights etc, but as silent as possible.
I was thinking light based case, changing based on game played etc, maybe water cooling but I think that would be out of the budget range. I dont have a budget just a “FPS” from him, he wants a minimum of 60FPS (well actually he said a min of 100FPS, and yes I have tried to explain but its hard trying to get it over, so Ive just said Ill look into it)
anyway if anyone has some ideas or a base build to look at or some parts to consider if your a bit more up to date on tech, AMD vs Intel etc that would be grand
