Seems this topic comes up about every week or two so figured I'd make a post specifically about it.

A lot of info in the spoiler below
In order to even run Farming Simulator 19, you'll need an i3-2100T or FX-4100 processor, though these processors are quite old and thus you'll be restricted to low quality and low fps, even with a decent graphics card. This is due to a term called bottlenecking, essentially, the processor can not send data to the graphics card fast enough even when it's using 100% of the CPU.

Graphics cards can also be a bottleneck, rather than the CPU being unable to send data fast enough, a GPU bottleneck is where the GPU can not keep up with the data that the CPU is sending. For Farming Simulator 19, the minium requirement is a GTX 650 or a Radeon HD 7770. This will also only be able to play the game on low settings and low fps.

The other important thing in the computer for gaming wise is the memory or rather the amount of ram in it. Farming Simulator 19 requires 4 GB at least. However most gamers will tell you that the minimum for games today is more like 8 GB while 16 GB being the current favorite.

Now that I've talked about the minimum requirements I'll talk about some recommendation parts that should be able to easily run the game while being somewhat budget friendly.

For a processor I would go with either an i5-8400 which you can get new for about $200 while AMD wise I'd go with a Ryzen 5 1600, cheaper than the i5 but still a decent CPU.

While Farming Simulator 19 is not a very demanding game compared to others I would recommend a GTX 1060, GTX 970 or GTX 1660 Ti for NVIDIA cards or the RX 580 or RX 570 for AMD cards.

Ram will depend on the motherboard and processor that your using, there's not much difference between specific ones, however you need to find out if the system requires ddr3 or ddr4 ram.

Buying used is also another option for budget buyers. Of course there are risks with buying used. One recommendation I have is that if you're buying used components, always ask the seller if you can test the parts before paying.
Below are some sites to help with computer components which I personally use and certainly will help when either picking out a prebuilt or your own parts.

http://www.pcpartpicker.com Useful for putting your own computer together. Helps by automatically making sure your parts are compatible with each other as well as listing the power required for your system and generally chooses the lowest price for the part from a list of about 10 websites.

http://www.game-debate.com Useful for looking at how well parts do in gaming. You can test how well a CPU and GPU setup will do in nearly any game. Quick note: For Farming Simulator 19, the graphics portion seems on however the CPU portion seems way off or switched around from what it should be on the recommended vs minimum settings.

If you're unsure about a system or looking for more help, then please post below and I'll be sure to take a look.
Thankyou so much for this helping material.

Good guidelines if building your own. But this also mean noone will help you debug whats not working. Did you damage your motherboard with that screwdriver when you fastened your CPU fan? Was the memory stick a bad match for that mb or CPU? Is the PSU dead or is the motherboars just not starting up? Do you have spare parts to use to test what component is misbehaving?

I've built all my PCs which is a handful and currently have 4 under my desk, but Ive also had some issues to resolve and seriously considered paying for a ready solution this time around to be able to remove some unknowns.

Also, in an attempt to minimize risk I end up with a lot of premium parts, so Im not exactly saving money, but at least the end result has typically been good..

Personally I wouldnt recommend building your own unless you feel somewhat comfortable with it, know someone that can help you, or are willing to spend some time researching. Toms hardware guide have been a good source of info for me at least.

Been toying with the idea of either building or buying a off the shelf pc but as funds are not huge I'd like to know if AMD Ryzen 5 5600G CPU with Wraith Stealth Cooler, AM4, 3.9GHz (4.4 Turbo), 6-Core, 65W, 19MB Cache, 7nm, 5th Gen, Radeon Graphics would play fs22 reasonably well until I can ave up and afford to have a dedicated graphics card installed.
Would be looking to have min of 16gb memory.

Unfortunately it looks like the integrated graphics on the 5600g likely would not run the game very well as performance wise it isn’t quite up to par with the minimum requirements. That being said, you may still be able to play the game on the absolute bare minimum of settings at a possibly passable frame rate.

I will through this out for anyone looking for a computer for this game, FS19 (and 22 maybe?) isn't as resource hungry as some may think.
An RTX 2060 (EVGA KO Ultra) and i5-9400f (256gb SSD, 8gb RAM, all stuffed into an HP Pavilion Gaming) are at ~50-60% load with settings maxed on 1080p and an unhealthy (:lol:) amount of mods.
YMMV


Edit A While Later:
This is playing on Medicine Creek, I didn't think to hit F2 on Griffin Indiana to get FPS there or tab out to task manager.

I checked, settings are definitely maxed, and I did not check CPU core load, so 60% overall CPU usage could've been with the main FS thread pinning a core @ 100%
Not sure how 22 compares to 19 for performance hunger.
Also it likes it's VRAM apparently, most of a 6gb card was being used up.

Also, I was moderately shocked to discover my Medicine Creek save seems to not like 60FPS but 30-40 is nicely synced/not a screen tearing mess/not a start stop slideshow. Am not sure weather it's CPU core performance, a bandwidth limit of my hardware, or just something inherent to the design of GIANTS Engine's code that causes it to not max out components.

If a map hasn't been tested/approved by Giants, then performance may be sub-optimal compared to Giants basegame and ModHub maps.There's nothing to insist it's optimised in any way.

FS22 generally runs a couple of threads near 100%. I've got 12 cores in my PC, when I go check Task Manager as it's running two at 100% and full turbo, the rest of the cores picking up the other threads as and when.

Medicine Creek Farms is a pretty terrible map in terms of performance generally and I’m aware of that, just was sharing that it and my not pretty mod folder run relatively well/smoothly on mid range hardware from a few years ago.

Also out of curiosity what CPU you running along with what video card?

i9-10920X, RTX 3070.

The way that CPU works, it has a couple of preferred cores that do 4.8GHz so they do the heavy lifting with FS22.
