1/Low gaming spec rig,can play gta at playable state:
MSI H110M ECO,Gaming or pro-vd

Why i pick a G4560:Cheap price,work almost as a i3 do.
You could pick a I3 too if you like:6100 is skylake,7100 is kabylake.

1TB WD blue:again,store most of data and we don't need 2tb,1 is enough for most game.

This card is great,awesome 4gb of gddr5 giving you more memory to turn some option on with out worry of video limit.
Gameplay of gtx 1050ti:

2/PC build instruction:
3/Tips for fps increase:
This is a awesome tool,clean stuff...
1/For low spec gaming rig:
Go and open setting.xml in Documents/Rockstar Games/GTA V.
Change Shadow_ParticleShadows value to false
Reflection_MipBlur to false
Lighting_FogVolumes to false.
In game setting:
Everything set to normal,don't change shadow because this will reset the setting.xml shadow value to true again.
Disable Auto-scan for music in music tab.
Disable task before launch,add gta v folder in antivirus so it don't scan during gameplay.
And you will have a fps boost for game,make it more enjoyable.
For other it's ok.
So that's my build guide to get a best gaming enjoyment and experience.
