Need a new build for my sister

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Hey ladies and gents I need a new build for my little sister. It's her birthday in the next 3 months and she wants a new computer. I want to build it for her so I can get some experience in building a PC before I build my ultimate gaming PC (In my Sig), and also something to be proud of, here is what I was thinking:

She plays Minecraft... that's the only game she plays. also uses Facebook, Instagram and Kik (gay I know).

Budget: under $550

I want it to have a dedicated GPU, something cheap... since she plays Minecraft.

she will be needing a monitor.

I don't have a good understanding about the older PC parts so I couldn't really put up a build since I wasn't 100% sure what parts I was choosing.

these are the 2 sites I can use:

ple.com.au

msy.com.au

since I can drive down and pickup the parts instead of paying the shipping and credit card taxes.

i know you probly meant no offence by it, but try to avoid terms like this smile.gif keep it classy.


as for your question, it sounds like you would do good with somthing likee....


athlon II x4 am3 (50-70$)
overclockable mobo (50-70$)
hyper 212 cooler (15-30$)
cheap 4gb ram (15-30$)
a vast range of used GPUs under 100$ or somthing like a 7750/ 650
400-500 reliable psu (around 50$)
500GB HDD (around 30-50$)
dvd drive (20$)
case (grab one of the cheapest you can find, i estimate like 30$)

if i havent forgotten anything this should come to around 500$ or less. Then just grab whatever cheap monitor (900x1440 tend to be decent value) you can find smile.gif

or you could take the APU route if you cant find a good dedicated video card and virtual xfire it

I could probably downgrade the CPU a little bit.

Is everything compatible?

The motherboard isn't compatible with the CPU. That CPU uses an FM2 socket. Also for minecraft, you don't need a dedicated GPU. The good thing about the AMD APU's is that the power of the gpu on the chip is sufficient for low level gaming like minecraft.

*edit* Also, even though 1333 ram is compatible, I wouldn't go less than 1600 for AMD cpu's. A lot of people even recommend 1866, but 1600 is the minimum I would go.

1.
1333MHz ram for APU is terrible idea since apu's gpu uses ram and gpus need fast ram.
2.
you dont need to hybrid cross fire for minecraft, apu itself is fully capable of handling MC. (and if not you still can get that gpu later).

Here is what you want to buy:

cpu: AMD A10-5800K for 129.00 @ msy
mobo: ASRock FM2A85X-EXTREME4-M A85X FM2 for 94.00 @ msy
ram: Patriot Viper PV38G213C1K 8G Kit(4Gx2) DDR3 2133 for 63.00 @msy
hdd: WD 3.5" Blue 1TB WD10EZEX SATA3 64M 7200rpm HDD for 67 @msy
psu: Corsair VS350 350W for 41.00 @msy
case: Silverstone Precision PS08 for 44.00 @ple
cpu cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO for 44 @ple (not only you will be able to overclock, but your rig will be silent)
monitor: cant help you here

rig total: 482$
