Budget for Watch Dogs Legion with RayTracing

If you want to enjoy the Watch Dogs Legion title, we have created a budget so you can move it without problems. This budget makes use of the latest generation components, focusing on the new Ryzen 5000 and the new NVIDIA RTX 3000. So we can enjoy the new Ubisoft game with RayTracing technology and a high FPS rate thanks to the support of DLSS technology.

This budget has a price of about 2000 euros

Processor: AMD Ryzen 7 5800X


There is no better processor on the market than this 7-core, 5800-thread AMD Ryzen 8 16X. It is based on the renewed Zen3 architecture that offers a 19% improvement in the IPC compared to the Ryzen 3000. This processor works at a base frequency of 3.8GHz and reaches 4.7GHz in Boost mode. It has 4MB of L2 cache and 32MB of L3 cache.

Motherboard: GIGABYTE X570 AORUS Pro 


The Ryzen 7 5800X requires a good quality and robust motherboard. We have opted for this motherboard because it offers excellent value for money. It has two shielded PCIe 4.0 x16 ports and two M.2 NVMe ports with passive heatsink. Regarding connectivity, this motherboard offers us a USB 3.1 Gen2 Type C in the I / O panel, in addition to a large number of a large number of USB Type A ports.

Heatsink: be quiet! Dark Rock Pro 4


As a heatsink for the Ryzen 7 5800X we have opted for this powerful heatsink. We have opted for this solution because it offers good air flow and guarantees correct heat dissipation. It has a first 120mm fan and a 135mm central fan. Both fans are PWM type, which guarantees high cooling efficiency and adaptive rotation according to the needs of the moment.

RAM memory: G.Skill TridentZ RGB 32 GB (2x16GB) 3200MHz CL16  


AMD Ryzen processors with the Zen3 architecture, like those of Zen2, work better with 3200MHz RAM. We can opt for higher frequency memories, but for the slight performance improvement that we would obtain, the extra cost does not compensate. This G.Skill kit has been specifically designed for AMD Ryzen processors and offers very good latencies.

Storage: Corsair MP400 1TB Gen3


For storage we have opted for a high-performance M.2 SSD. We have opted for a PCIe Gen3 drive, instead of a PCIe Gen4, because the price difference does not compensate. PCIe Gen4 are twice as fast, but also twice as expensive as Gen3. This Corsair unit is one of the best on the market, offering great performance and with the heatsinks on the Gigabyte motherboard we will not have thermal throttling problems.

Graphics card: Gigabyte RTX 3070 Gaming OC


Installing an NVIDIA RTX 2000 graphics card with the RTX 3000 on the market would not make sense. This graphics card offers similar performance to the RTX 2080 in RayTracing with a lower price. Also, this budget is focused on playing Watch Dogs Legion with active ray tracing, so using an NVIDIA graphics is inevitable. We opted for this model because it features the WindForce3X heatsink (and because there isn't much else to choose from on Amazon)

Note: Due to the lack of stock it is at a much higher price than due, we recommend waiting to buy it

Power supply: Antec HCG750 


The overall system can consume, at most, about 400-450W at full load. For this reason we have chosen this 800W power supply and because it is 80Plus Gold certified. Something that we really liked about this power supply is that it is completely modular. This enables highly efficient cable management.

Chassis: Antec DP502 Flux ARGB


Have a great air flow in our chassis we consider it essential. This has a front grille and comes with two ARGB front fans installed plus a rear fan and another in the power supply area, the latter two without ARGB. It has filters on the front, right side, top and for the power supply.

Something quite curious is that it hides a bay for 5.25-inch drives that can be removed. The lid covers it and also covers a space for a third fan, if we want to add it.

Regarding the front panel, it has a button to manage the integrated controller. It has 3.5mm jack connectors, one for a microphone and one for headphones. Additionally, it has two USB 3.0 ports. The jacks and USBs have easily removable plastic rubbers to prevent dust from accumulating.
