Description

I built this PC to sell to a friend. The grand total came out to $540. The RX 480 4GB I used was not listed on this site. For the cost this is a pretty decent little system. I can recommend the Enthoo Evolv mITX to anyone interested in a smaller size build. While not overly compact it's much smaller than my S340 and will look good anywhere you place it. This is a good motherboard for the price, but, for 10 more dollars I would have gotten the next one up due to the sata port locations. I was just barely able to run the sata cables behind the gpu rather than up and over the ram. One pro for this board is that it comes with a BIOS that has been updated to run Kaby lake chips. The Pentium G4560 is well worth the price. The last budget build I did used an i3 6100 and the Pentium runs right there with is for half the price. Please ignore the dustiness in the final picture. The PC was already at my friends house and he doesn't keep his gaming area very clean.

I think you should have skipped the SSD for a 1tb hardrive, in a budget build, i feel u shouldnt have 1, and 620GB is not a lot of space.

I actually did find a new a 1tb for only $5 more than this 500gb and the 500gb hasn't arrived yet so it will be returned.

There seems to be a'lot of hate in the comments, but i think you did good man! My brother has the same CPU/GPU combo in his build, and it runs splendid! If there is bottleneck goin on, it sure isn't that noticable. +1!

Thanks. Of course I could have went with a $20 case and saved $50 but really the only thing that would have been able to go toward is more storage or ram since the next up CPU would be an i3 which just wouldn't be worth the money and the GPU is already topping this CPU out so no point upgrading there either. My buddy wanted something that looks good and works well. I think this fits that.

Glad you didn't go for a cheaper case. I think spending more on the case you want is absolutely worth it! Also, CPU upgrades a are a little easier than a case upgrade. Hope your friend likes it!

The case will be nice for a while with plenty of upgrade options thanks!

This 480 was on sale for $169.99 plus $20 mail in rebate. $150 vs the cheapest $200 580 is a deal I couldn't pass on.

Bottle-necking is not a yes or no, it depends on the program you are using.

Yeah but this 480 was only $169.99 plus $20 rebate. That's cheaper than a 470. Bottleneck shmottleneck.
