okay ill get rid of the ssd but whats wrong with the psu i mean i know its not made with the most high quality parts but its very reliable (i have one myself) and it gets 4 star reviews so obviously other people were pleased with it too. further more this build doesn't put it under any significant stress

it would be slightly faster as it is overclocked to 1.19GHZ so go for it!

i know that ecs isn't the most reliable brand, but as long as you aren't overclocking, then they should be able to last for a reasonable amount of time. also they have 2-3 year warranty so you are covered if it breaks. also that gigabyte board actually gets less reviews and seems less reliable than both the m3 and m9 from ecs.

when choosing ur part at the very top right in small text there is a button that says "add from filter" click on it after choosing parameters on the left and then it will work

  1. The 4460 is stronger than the 6400 and is only ~10-30% weaker than the 6500 in all areas (excluding integrated graphics) and is significantly cheaper and will still handle most games fine.

  2. The SSD is only so you can boot Windows in a couple seconds as well as maybe your favorite apps. The rest you can just throw onto the 1TB HDD.

  3. Not necessarily, there are many builds which have this combination and get very good fps while gaming; and getting something else will bump the price WAY over $500. However with that being said I may edit this list and remove the SSD to see if i can fit an r9 380 or something similar into this build.

  4. What makes you think that? I have one myself it works fine. I know it is not made with the most quality of parts but it is not being put under significant stress in this build and based on all the reviews it is exceptionally reliable.

but how old is ur laptop? newer ones that are dual core still work fine, just look at the pentium processors. i had a chromebook until my brother stepped on it and it worked fine with much lower specs up until that point...

how come? just because they are cheap parts doesn't mean they wont last. most of them have at least a 3 yr warranty anyways... but yea ur right that a laptop may be better especially if you dont want to upgrade components down the road. also you could run linux on this which would increase speed...

thanks for the feedback! i know i could have saved some $ w/ a radeon but i wanted to pack as much performance as i could into the build and there isn't much that can beat a $97 gtx 750 ti!

i have literally a build with this exact cpu and gpu and on games it has run fine so far. fallout 4 and mass effect 3 are the games i play most and i am able to run both of those with the settings bumped up while getting at least 30fps on fallout and staying at 60fps (frame rate cap) on mass effect

actually that case fan is exceptional for overclocking, the case already has a fan and i will add another to the list l8r (thanks for pointing that out) and the psu is fine, especailly for a budget build that doesn't need much power.

whats wrong with the psu? i have one myself that i oc on w/ no problems. i know its not the highest of quality but it is 80+ and made by a pretty reliable company, and doesn't have any accounts of randomly exploding. i will add another fan to the list l8r case already comes with one and im too lazy to edit the list atm xD.

i dont think it would void the warranty because its just like adding any other component to the mobo in a way and im pretty sure the other components would be fine....

Okay, glad u thought the heat sinks were interesting! It's a great way to save money by getting away with a cheapish mobo and still being able to oc.

That looks pretty good! Just a couple tiny things:

I'm not sure how reliable that PSU is, try and find a cheap one that is at least 80+ and made by a known and reliable company.

Also that mobo w/ the stock cooler will support a bit of overclocking but i wouldn't go too far with it as there are no vrm heatsinks on the board.

Apart from that nice job!

nice idea, but dangerous board to oc on especially w/ no cooler/heatsinks and and also that cpu performs very similar to the a8 in my build but is a lot more expensive, also that psu could explode, especially if you try to oc with it.

nothing much apart from clock speed and price. they should perform about the same and they should both be pretty reliable. thx for leaving not about hdd i will leave a note in desc about hard drive so people know it could be loud

the price of a case w/ a psu when you account for shipping is exactly the same... plus i would rather have a pc that won't explode lol

To everyone complaining about the GPU; I just edited the page so now under the GPU section there is a note mentioning the R7 370!

I agree that those GPUs are a lot better than the 750 TI, but all three of those GPUs are also significantly more expensive than the 750 Ti, which can be found for $90-$100 sometimes, and if I were to use one of them it would put the build over $400 by a significant amount. Also I have the 750 Ti and an Athlon X4 860K and I got excellent FPS on Fallout 4 and Mass Effect 3. The case is just the cheapest I found and if I were to go with anything nice it would once again put the build over $400; but when going for a budget build most people don't mind bad cable management, especially when you only have to assemble a PC once.

but i doubt that will put it at full load, plus like i said its under warranty. Also i have one myself on a similar build its completely silent and my mobo isn't the best for overclocking but i overclocked my gpu with no problem.

Meh...its the cheapest 80+ i could find, anything nicer puts this build over $400. It has a 3 yr warranty so if anything goes wrong you can get a refund... also this build is only 252 watts so it wont be putting it under any significant stress...

I don't spam, I have been editing the lists a lot lately to keep the prices under the specified amount; I probably won't update them again for a while, but i had been trying to find the best possible parts...

Why? It's 80+ certified and gets good reviews on Newegg.
