Best build with 550-600$ budget for a friend. - Page 6

post #51 of 91
I have £500 to spend on a budget build, this is kind of what im looking for but im struggling i wanted i5 rather than i3, and as for a motherboard i dont even know were to start.....i think im being to enthusiastic with such a budget,

http://www.ebuyer.com/349029-intel-core-i5-3570k-3-4ghz-socket-1155-6mb-cache-retail-boxed-processor-bx80637i53570k

these are what i come up with which is more than half the budget ;x

The FX-6300 is only better than the i3-3220 for very heavily-threaded applications that can actually use the 3 modules that it contains. The thing is that the usage pattern you outlined would not take advantage of said extra hardware, and thus would result in a lesser experience due to its lower per-core performance.

an FX chip @ 4.5ghz would perform better than an I3 on lightly threaded apps however, if your not overclocking, and your playing LOL then an I3 is better. for that matter, an ivy Pentium would be fine too.

One of the greatest things about stock-clocked Intel rigs is that they're pretty much set-and-forget and still have very good performance.

There isn't a Socket 1155 chip that won't run properly at default speeds even on a $70 B75 motherboard, whereas for AMD you have to be much more careful about that since many AM3+ boards won't support 125w chips like the 8150.

I know that such a thing gets overlooked by a lot of people here on OCN (and perhaps rightfully so), but it's a godsend when it comes to recommending stuff for less-technical people like the OP's buddy.

I agree with others that a 3220 or even a fast Ivy Pentium is your best bet.
I wouldnt recommend worrying about getting a quad core(Intel OR AMD) into an entry level gaming rig when a 3220 will more than feed any video card you can possibly get in that price range.

If you get him a decent z77(lets say something like a Gigabyte UD3/UD4) he can swap CPUs down the road and start overclocking REALLY easily.

Thank you for everyone help this is what i decided to build for him .

Processor: Intel Core i3-2100 3.1GHz Dual-Core Processor
Motherboard: ASRock Z77 Pro4-M Micro ATX LGA1155 Motherboard
Rams: G.Skill Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory
Gpu: MSI R7770-2PMD1GD5/OC Radeon HD 7770 GHz Edition 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
DVD/CD/BURNER: LG or samsung
Case: NZXT Tempest 210 CA-TP210-01 Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Powersupply: CORSAIR Builder Series CX430 430W ATX12V v2.3 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply or Silverstone

Total: 522.46 + taxes , he still have about 80$ left , told him to invest in Samsung 840 Series 2.5 inch 120GB SATA and CM Hyper 212 , so around 635ish. - he get about 50-60 rebate bringing it to around 560ish =]

I would like to thanks : Svenge , tshout , sherlock , LuckySe7ens , xd9denz and the rest of you guys that contributed! Let me know what you guys think!! =]

FX 6300 is a better option, its a 3 module with 6 real cores with each module has one strong core and one weaker core... FX 6300 is overall better, getting a dual core in 2013 is just pathetic, you could buy a quad core Athlon 2 x4 750k(FM2 socket) for 107$ and a 50$ motherboard and 150$ Radeon HD 7790...

Oddly enough there is not much of Athlon 2 x4 750k in USA, at launch the price was only 81-90$... So I wonder why is 107$

Athlon 2 x4 750k is a CPU used in A10 5800k's APU, it also beats i3 2100 and lower power consumption... FX 6300 and A2x4750k have same single threaded performance as i3 2100...

Am I missing something, or is there no hard drive listed in that build? Either way, good luck!

CPU: AMD FX-6300 3.5GHz 6-Core Processor ($119.99 @ Microcenter)
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-78LMT-USB3 Micro ATX AM3+ Motherboard ($49.99 @ Microcenter)
Memory: Kingston HyperX Grey 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory ($45.98 @ Amazon)
Video Card: Sapphire Radeon HD 7870 XT 2GB Video Card ($234.99 @ Newegg)
Case: Silverstone PS08B (Black) MicroATX Mid Tower Case ($34.90 @ Amazon)
Power Supply: Corsair Builder 430W 80 PLUS Certified ATX12V Power Supply ($19.99 @ Newegg)
Total: $585.82
(Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available.)

might be going with this build, but taking out 500 gb hd for 128gb SSD , might not need the xigmatek. Can i get a few more opinions the FX-6300 over the I3 because he will be multi tasking playing like wow , minecraft and other stuff so he might need the extra core. Might take out the Corsair for silverstone.

Can you recommend a few more motherboard under 90$ for this build so i can see some option. I was thinking about this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157280

i would recommend against a AMD cpu unless you or friend are going to overclock also im not sure if the motherboard you linked supports the newer AMD cpus and the motherboard will not overclock well.
EDIT: sorry i did not see the asrock motherboard the asrock mother board is ATX and case case is matx sop you will need a bigger case here is a another option for motherboard http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131872 read some reviews on both of them and see which one is better for your friend ssd would be good if you friend is using a another hdd for moveis music ect
