Description

A new build for my little brother. This is by far my favorite budget build combo except for the 1 TB. I wouldve swapped it out for a 256 SSD. I also bought a new fancy camera. Panasonic DMC FZ-200.

Part Reviews

CPU

Awesome processor, not the best for multi tasking tho.

Video Card

This thing kill! It can run most games smoothly on high settings in 1080p! And it meets the requirements for most games that uses more than 2gb vram!

Case

Love this case! Its modern and clean looking.

Power Supply

Hasn't blown up yet!

Operating System

Search bar could be better. Better than Win 7!

Holy cow, those are gorgeous pictures. The build looks great, too. Very clean, well-organized, and really good bang for the buck.

I like. Nice budget build. Most people can't get windows 10 for $7 though.

I got it for free.... It wasn't piracy it was the free windows upgrade.

It's even better when you're an IT major at college and can get it for free.

Pretty sweet for under five Benjamins. Nice job on photography, too. It looks like you're missing a standoff screw, though (LR corner of board).

Thanks!

The case doesn't have holes for those screws.

The one looks like a locating stud, and the other might require a standoff to be moved. It's a standard mounting location, so I'd be surprised if there wasn't a spot for it. A brief stint on GIS makes it look like there is, bu it's probably not worth going back and fixing at this point.

I personally would have started off with a pentium G4560, and once I get a little bit more cash, would have upgraded to the i5 7500 or 7600. Most i3s are not needed anymore due to the new pentiums that are out.

It says Windows 10 is $7, but when I check it's over $100, can you please explain?

The sale of those keys violate Microsoft ToS, and the keys may be unexpectedly disabled. Recommending, suggesting, advising, encouraging, hinting, or in any way implying these keys as a solution or option is not allowed on this site.

As for keys being disabled, that's what the user protection is for, you get a refund. I didn't realise that it wasn't allowed on the site, apologies. I didn't realise that would be against the rules.

Why didn't you go with a G4560 it's half the price and the motherboards are $10 more.

Does the case come with screws and such?

Hey I don't know much about building PCs, so I was wondering if I could switch out the 1050 Ti with a 1060 3-GB. Will that cause any issues?

  • 27 months ago
  • 1 point

Would be better. A bog standard cheapo 1060 of any kind will be better than the very best super super super FTW super-clocked 1050 TI. If you do your research you'll see that the 6gb 1060 is only around 5% faster than the 3gb in games (the 3gb has a small section disabled). As for VRAM, bigger isn't necessarily better. The 1060 doesn't need 6gb as the vram can only operate so fast - meaning any more than 3gb is very unlikely to get used. In games that is, 8K video editing might be a different story.

I honestly would've gone with an AMD chip here, as you're going to need at least a quad core for stable gaming without dips, and you could've gotten an FX-6300 for a few bucks less.

  • 34 months ago

This processor is basically a quad core with hyper threading and can out perform a 6300 any day! I have personally owned both. I also needed the strong single core performance for Arma 3, because the 6300 is too weak compared to the highest ranking single core performance i3.

Ah, I see now. :P I guess I was just looking at it from a purely budget standpoint, since I have affinity for those.

I say that while owning an AMD FX 8320E OC'd to 4.2ghz and a GTX 970.
