Critique my build - $600 budget build - Page 2

post #11 of 94
I would be glad to throw a budget build together for you, I built PC from 125 to 600 dollars over the summer. If your shopping at Newegg do you get the email sales?

That is why I posted this....good info. Thanks guys. I kind of wanted to get a AM3+ mobo so I could upgrade the processor at a later date. If I get a Phenom II x4 965, what is a good mobo that will allow for future upgrades to 6 or 8 core processors if needed?

Yes, Alderonn....please feel free to suggest a build. Here are my goals:

  • keep everything under $600
  • allow for easy upgrade on better processor in future
  • allow for overclocking (I'm somewhat of a noob in this area)


What I need in my system:
Monitor, Windows 7, keyboard and mouse, GPU, CPU, Mobo, PSU, ram. I would also like a new flashy case if it can fit within the budget....

I can probably go up to $650 for everything if need be. I realize I may be askingg the impossible but welcome any and all of you to work your magic with components.

Thanks guys!

BTW, I didn't buy the games earlier, they came free with the GPU....

This build will run laps around what you have proposed.

Either of these are dang good builds.. But with $99.99 for a OS and 10-25 for Keyboard and Mouse he's closer to $700 dollars

Yes, thats a good build... If I had to pick between that and the one I posted it would be a tough pick. I used a couple of the 1155 pentiums over the summer and was very happy with them. About once every 2-3 weeks Newegg will do a Shellshocker on a MoBo and CPU combo, Today it happens to be the FM1/MSI combo. But If OP waits until the next time its a Intel 1155 combo that's also a cheap way to go.

Thanks guys. I would like to stick with quad core machines since dual core is becoming fairly outdated. Now the question is....go with AM3 or FM1....
