Build For My Brother On a Tight Budget

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
His budget is around £250

This is what I came up with

AMD A6-3670K 2.7GHz Quad-Core Processor - £89.98

ASRock A55M-HVS Micro ATX FM1 Motherboard - £48.23

Kingston Value 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR3-1333 Memory - £16.40

OCZ Onyx 32GB 2.5" Solid State Disk - £48.28

Fractal Design Core 1000 MicroATX Mini Tower Case - £29.98

Corsair 430W ATX12V Power Supply - £34.81

Link to PcPartPicker for all links LINK

He plays Minecraft atm and on his Laptop he gets Less than 20fps with all settings low

He wants to play games like TF2 Nothing to GPU intensive

What do you guys think ?

Looks like a decent rig for the price, should play Minecraft very well.

The integrated graphics on the chip will benefit from faster ram than 1600 if you can find it for a good price.

Does he plan on overclocking his computer?
