Dirt cheap 8120 build recommendation

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey guys like the title says, I am looking for the absolute cheapest way to build a system around the FX 8210. I need everything in the computer box (HDD, RAM, etc) I do have a monitor, keyboard, mouse, OS. So basically I would need everything from the ground up.

I would absolutely love to keep it under or around $450 if at all possible. I would love to OC it and that is the reason I chose the slower of the FX processors. I will also do gaming on it but don't exactly expect a GTX 680 in this machine. Thanks so much!

Are you sure the 8120 is what you need? There's a reason that I don't particularly like to recommend the FX series processors except occasionally the 4100 depending on needs.

 

At a $500 budget with the 8120 on top maintaining the balance would be difficult. I'll assume you can take refurbished items.  Here's what I can come up with:
AMD FX-8120 - $150 shipped [NCIX]

ASUS M5A99X EVO [refurb] - $54 + shipping [Geeks] with code GEEKBERT

Kingston HyperX 2x2GB DDR3-1600 - $20 shipped [NCIX]

nVidia GTX 460 1GB - $72 + shipping [Geeks] with code GEEKBERT

Samsung F3 7200RPM 1TB HDD - $70 shipped [Newegg]

ASUS 24X DVD-RW drive - $13 shipped [NCIX]

Bitfenix Merc Beta - $30 shipped [NCIX]
Antec Neo ECO 450C - $35 shipped [NCIX]

 

All that at $444 + Geeks shipping
