    Budget? For BeamNG assuming 1080p high settings +reflections you'll want an i5 and a decent GPU, the RX 470 and 480 are great budget GPUs.

    İ meant how much He can spend on Thé computer but yeah since AMDs Newest cards run dx12 better it is a better option

    Was replying to OP. Also pretty much any AMD card since the 7000 series will run DX12 better than their Nvidia counterparts, it's not a Polaris thing.

    Assuming USD, that'll get you a great PC. It also brings up the question of "What else do you want to do with it?" VR? Video editing? Also, you want to ask yourself "How do I want it to look?" Do you have a color scheme in mind? What do you want your case/graphics card/motherboard to look like?

    For ~$1500, you can build a very powerful computer. I would recommend something on the lines of this. You can change out the motherboard, RAM, GPU, and case to suit your desires. You may want additional HDD space if you have large games, do photography or videography, or just have lots of data.

    You can buy a ssd if you want Btw I assume that prices should be lower in Canada than Turkey

    If you wont overclock buy the first one but I suggest you overclocking.
    And your monitor is at least 1080p right ?

    This is what I would recommend based on the information given. http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/list/P4QZZ8
    It is a beast of a computer. Will run 4K very well, and you could do VR if desired. The case is sleek and easy to build in, and everything will look nice inside it.

    I went to that website made an account and made an excellent PC! but I dont know how to paste a viewable link that won't ask you to login so here is the list:
    • i7 6-core / 12 thread,
    • GTX 1080 8GB DDR4,
    • 16GB Ram,
    • Total $1500
    Build.PNG


    This should get you about 70-90fps 1080p with max settings with 6-7 cars. 40-50fps @4k Notice that I dropped the H100i and invested it in 2 additional cores, the Hyper 212 Evo gets close to H100i performance in most test unless your overclocking like mad, and in this case an insanely overclocked Quad-Core wont match a slightly Overclocked Six-Core when it comes to BeamNG. Also in test with BeamNG hyper-threading may be an asset when it comes to running 2 cars per core (I could be wrong but I can't argue with realtime results) Results: when I had my AMD quad core it could only run 3 cars @55fps smoothly and 4 cars @42fps, 5 cars @19fps. When I had my quad core i7 I could run 7 cars @63fps smoothly, the 8th car @57fps and the 9th car @26fps leading me to believe it can run 2 cars per core on i7 CPUs (hyper-threading) , Also I got a GTX 1080 in there for good measure all for $1500. Notice that the case is ugly and the SSD has a low amount of space, I went this route because to me a high end CPU, GPU and Memory size is what matters. One time I ran a full PC with no case or DVD drive because it was outside my budget and the system ran fine, I bought a case and DVD drive 2 months later ;) As your library of games grow you can buy a cheap HDD down the line but for now you want bang for your buck out of the box performance.

    That GTX 1080 price is not legitimate. And that's USD, you need CAD.
    CPU or GPU? I beg to differ with both.

    There currently is no AMD GPU that is near as powerful as the GTX 1080.
    AMD has not released a new CPU architecture in several years. And the single threaded performance of them weren't great when they were new.

    You might wanna add at least a 1tb HDD

    Oh yeah 4k is kinda a waste of money according to wired you need to be like 5 inches a way from your screen to take effect of 4k

    But İ am
    But AMDs cards run DX12 better and that problem can be solved with crossfire.
