Budget Gaming Build... - Page 2

post #11 of 18
If i were you, i would be buying this:

PCPartPicker part list: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/1oz4Z
Price breakdown by merchant: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/1oz4Z/by_merchant/
Benchmarks: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/1oz4Z/benchmarks/

CPU: AMD FX-4300 3.8GHz Quad-Core Processor ($99.99 @ Newegg)
Motherboard: ASRock 960GM/U3S3 FX Micro ATX AM3+ Motherboard ($60.97 @ Newegg)
Memory: Corsair Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory ($77.99 @ Newegg)
Storage: Western Digital Caviar Blue 500GB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($59.99 @ Newegg)
Video Card: Asus Radeon HD 7770 GHz Edition 1GB Video Card ($95.38 @ Newegg)
Case: NZXT Source 210 (Black) ATX Mid Tower Case ($43.98 @ Newegg)
Power Supply: Antec 450W ATX12V Power Supply ($43.98 @ Newegg)
Total: $482.28


You could also throw in a 6300 for a few more dollars, but honestly i feel like a 4300 is enough for any game today, however we dont know about this once next-gen consoles come out.

The FX 6300 is just 10$ more and much more worth it.

Awesome advice guys: here is what I decided on, only because an online company local to me has it for a deal, and I like to support local business (saving me money too!)

Motherboard: Asus M5A78L-M DDR3 DVI/HD - $60
Processor: AMD FX-6300 3.8Ghz - $119
Memory: Corsair 8GB DDR3 - $65
Case / Power Supply: Cooler Master 350 w/ 500Wattt Extreme Power Supply - $65
1GB GTX650 - $119
Storage: 1TB Seagate $59

Total : $487

They are also throwing in a free 24x dvd r/w ..... I think this will work for me. I just check prices and they are pretty competitive... now, I had forgot to take the operating system into account, so I have to spend another 80 bucks on windows 7 frown.gif

The Cooler Master Extreme is one of the worst PSU ever made if you buy one the whole PC will blow up

Its cheap because its crap

Cooler Master eXtreme Power 500w

The AcBel built Cooler Master eXtreme Power 500w is certainly one of the older and lower end designs in today's roundup and as such it really isn't surprising that it is not the top unit today. While the unit was able to output its claimed capacity at 45c (and at 100v AC input) it was not a great unit or even a passing unit as the DC Output Quality was just plain bad at full load. The unit’s component selection and build quality are far from top notch, the efficiency peaked at ~77% and bottomed out at ~71%. The DC Output Quality was out of specification limits at full load on ALL of the rails at 100v. At the current price of $49.99 the eXtreme Power 500w is certainly not an “eXtremely” amazing buy as it did not cleanly pass testing.

I would not touch that either

Think the cheapest you can get away with is a XFX Core Edition 450 watts

Or if you its not for a gaming or overclocking machine a Corsair CX but the XFX is better for not that much more money

Switch out the case and PSU for these:

PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant / Benchmarks

Case: Fractal Design Core 1000 USB 3.0 MicroATX Mid Tower Case ($24.99 @ Newegg)
Power Supply: Rosewill Capstone 450W 80 PLUS Gold Certified ATX12V / EPS12V Power Supply ($59.99 @ Newegg)
Total: $84.98
(Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available.)
(Generated by PCPartPicker 2013-08-07 05:11 EDT-0400)

The Fractal case is on sale, a great price if you ask me, but you might want to get another fan for the case since that FX-6300 is not the coolest CPU in the world. Also, gives you the ability to get a great PSU in the Rosewill Capstone, for ten bucks more you could get the semi modular 450-M, which, is real handy for smaller cases and just generally building the PC. Good cable management helps with air flow as well.

Total=$506.98

Hope this helps. Cheers. thumb.gif
