Do you need an OS? Add $100 to builds that don't have that. Prebuilts have them
Don't get a 2133 MHz ram. Get 3000+. It benefits faster processors
Buy a used PC. An OS itself will cost about $100
Rx 470, 480, 570, and 580 are out of stock
For the last one, I meant that two cores act as one
Yeah still play games
My friend might not be able to connect to Ethernet in college
Is it possible to remove the fan from the cpu cooler and turn it 90 degrees so the AMD logo is in the correct position?
I mean deathadder mouse*** not strafe
PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant
I got a 6500 because it's cheaper and Kaby Lake isn't really necessary. I got a 128GB SSD, which you should use for boot drive and some programs like Chrome. Games should be loaded on to the hard drive. I got the rx 480 because it's better than rx 470. RX 470 is decent too. The case is smaller than the two lists below me. It's just to save space. You can get a bigger case if you want. The monitor is 144hz, the keyboard is mechanical, and the mouse is Gucci (you can sync rgb between the keyboard and mouse, but get the strafe if you want since that is good too)
I need the computer to do work though :l
This one has a better CPU and one stick of RAM. Also, buy his case and PSU. His are cheaper
Hmm. Definitely get a 8x1 for memory. 4x2 uses more energy and wastes ram slot space for future upgrades. If you don't need it right now, you don't have to buy the hard drive. Also, do you have a Microcenter nearby? They have a great deal on CPUs and compatible motherboards are $30 off
as low as possible. I dont need a 4 core cpu lol but i will need a more silent cpu fan
You don't need 750W power supply. More like 550 or 600 atleast.
Basically, without tax, it's $740 if that's what you're asking
CPU and Motherboard - Good choice. However, my friend loses out on the wifi that comes with the mITX board I had on AND Micro Center has a deal for $30 off when buying a compatible processor. So basically, I only save like $5 and Jet.com might have shipping (excluding WiFi card, but he can use ethernet for now)?
Storage - He will download all the games he has on steam almost instantly. So, I don't think it's worth it to go that route.
Video Card - We might actually get an RX480, probably an 8 gb version if there's an open box for sale.
Power Supply - Will look for certified PSUs.
Monitor - looked for the cheapest 1080p monitor lol
SORRY but you forgot da TAX!
For the motherboard, I plan to use 16gb of RAM by adding 2 more sticks in the future.
After rebate, the MSI, Asus, and XFX are within a few bucks from each other. At that point, I'm looking for best performance, even if it's by a little bit. So what I want is the best performer that can run max as long as I'm playing a game. Still the MSI?
Are you sure that 550 watts is enough? I'm afraid it won't be enough when I'm playing a highly intense game.
how would i do that though?
Actually nvm this build is ok
The thing is, would the CPU work with the motherboard? I want things to go as smooth as possibly, without having to change any of the bios settings
I love this build.
Can't I just replace the graphics cards with newer ones or will graphics cards come out with a different type of slot?
Why is the 1080 necessary?
It does seem impractical but it's worth it
Wouldn't a 250gb ssd and 1 or 2 tb hard drive be cheaper and work just as well? Or does it slow my comp down>
I don't need the OS. Just computer parts please
