What Type Of Rig

...do you guys think it'll take for Madden to run like a well oiled machine. I was prepared to either get the X or a Pro...but the PC news changed it all...

Re: What Type Of Rig

2 1080s... lol you could run madden 39.

Honestly a GTX 1060 would suffice to run it well as far as GPU goes. Atleast 1080p.

I personally will be running a 1070ti or 1080.

If Madden is similar to Battlefield games (same engine) then it’ll be CPU heavy too so you’ll need a solid processor unlike some games.

To answer your question:

GTX 1060 6GB - $300-330
GTX 1070ti 8GB - $499-525
GTX 1080 8GB - $565-600

I know this because I’m actively shopping as we speak.

...

2K Build with SLI 1080s? You would have to be running an intel celuron processor with 2GB of Ram as the cheapest a 1080 has ever been is 800CDN and have been over 900 for quite some time.

If you want to run Madden *better* than on a console and have nothing (need monitor, mouse/keyboard) youre going to look upwards of 1300 USD. You could cut costs in using your TV as a monitor (not recommended) or generic mouse/keyboard.

Hopefully this is okay, here is a build for example.

https://pcpartpicker.com/list/PdrNzY This would be a build that is moderate budget but should last a good 5-7 years (ideally) and let you pretty well run any game you want.

Re: What Type Of Rig

I think I'll be in the $700-800 range.

But I already have a couple of my main components (SSD, ram) so realistically, I'm in the $1200 range.
