AMD Ryzen + RTX 2070: Battlefield V DXR On

AMD Gaming PC with RTX 2070 - Gadget Boulevard

Last week EA and DICE published their recommended PC specs for running Battlefield V with Ray Tracing enabled, and this week they updated it with the minimum specs requirements.

So let’s talk about the minimum requirements, as always an RTX graphics card is needed. And at the bottom of the RTX cards is the 2070, which was just recently made available.

With the minimum requirements set by EA/DICE, let’s build a worthy PC that is capable of Ray Tracing using the AMD Ryzen 5 2600.

So let’s build an AMD Gaming PC!

AMD Gaming PC with RTX

So let’s start with the basics, according to EA/DICE an AMD Ryzen 5 2600 can do the job as your processor.

Still the best value processor out there, the Ryzen 5 2600 offers 6 cores and 12 threads of computing power.

It is unlocked and has a base clock of 3.4Ghz and a boost clock of 3.9Ghz.

The Ryzen 5 2600 can support up to 2933Mhz of DDR4 memory. So getting those 3000Mhz memory modules are a good thing. If you’re overclocking the Ryzen 5 2600 better get a more higher clocked memory module.

Now the AMD Ryzen 5 2600 already comes with its own cooler but for this build we’re pairing it up with the Cooler Master MasterLiquid ML240R RGB All-in-One Cooler.

Why? Because it’s RGB time, aside from its great cooling performance the RGB lighting will work wonders as we also selected an RGB’d motherboard.

The motherboard we’ve selected is the Gigabyte B450 AORUS Elite which can support the Ryzen 7 2700X or any Pinnacle Ridge, Raven Ridge and Summit Ridge AMD processors.

Aside from the RGB FUSION lighting, the B450 AORUS Elite has a great cooling design allowing for a more cooler system operation.

Adding to that the B450 AORUS Elite features 6 temperature sensors and 4 hybrid fan headers, and pairing it with the MasterLiquid ML240R RGB AIO Cooler is the next best thing that you’ll have.

RAM and fast storage

Corsair Vengeance LPX

Corsair’s Vengeance LPX DDR4 series has always been our choice and this time around we’re choosing the 16GB (2x8GB) 3000Mhz CL15 kit.

Nothing fancy here just pure performance as the Vengeance LPX is very compatible with the AMD Ryzen.

And for fast storage the Samsung 970 EVO 250GB NVMe M.2 is our choice for this build.

Fast sequential read and write speeds of up to 3,500MB/s and 2,500 MB/s respectively.

The ticket to RTX – GeForce RTX 2070

To make this build Ray Tracing capable we chose the EVGA GeForce RTX 2070 Black Edition. There are a lot of RTX 2070 graphics card from other brands but EVGA offers one of the best features and the best price.

This graphics card has 2,304 CUDA cores with a boost clock of up to 1,620, but keep in mind that this is overclockable.

With 8GB of GDDR6 memory with a bandwidth of 448GB/s.

This graphics card is our ticket to Ray Tracing games.

Rounding up – Power supply and case

Rounding up the AMD Gaming PC build we opted for a 750 watt power supply because of the RTX card.

Though NVIDIA recommends at least 550 watts the extra 200 watts is just enough to give you some headroom.

We selected the semi-modular EVGA 750GQ which is 80+ Gold Rated and having a 5 year warranty by EVGA.

For the case to put all of these parts together, we selected the Cooler Master MasterBox Pro 5 RGB.

As its name suggest, RGB is all around. This case will work wonders with the RGB enables Gigabyte B450 AORUS Elite motherboard and the Cooler Master MasterLiquid ML240R RGB AIO Cooler.
