Cheap Gaming Challenge [CLOSED]

post #1 of 61
Thread Starter 
Ok so, I havent seen one of these threads in a long time so here it goes.

Build a computer, for as cheap as possible, using no dead sockets, for gaming.

This computer must play BF4 at medium settings @ 45FPS as a minimum.
Must have a case which supports everything you put in.
PSU must not blow up under full load after 10 hours (that means no terrible PSU's)
No Ebay, everything must be able to be bought from a store new.

Again, no dead sockets, ie: FM2/+, LGA 1155, etc, only current sockets, ie: AM3/+, LGA 1150, LGA 2011.
No old processors, ie: Phenom X4, FX-x1xx, FX-x2xx

Computer needs:
CPU
Motherboard (no ECS, etc crap)
RAM (4GB minimum)
Storage
PSU
Case


Winner will receive a steam game under $15 of their choice. I will decide the winner based on performance/cost ratio.


Winner is Buzzbuzzbuzz

CPU: i5-4330 $180.50 (NewEgg)
MoBo: Gigabyte GA-B85-HD3 $84.97 (Outlet PC)
RAM: G.Skill Ares, 2x4GB DDR3-1600 $64.99 (NewEgg)

PSU: Corsair CX500M $59.99 (NewEgg)
Case: Corsair Carbide Series SPEC-03 $59.99 (NewEgg)
Total: $649.43

Without buying crappy parts, that's about the best you can do. 650Ti's are the cheapest card that'll run BF4 and medium settings above 45fps consistently.

If the R7 265 can't be found due to limited availability, the GTX 750 Ti would be a great substitution in it. Also, something like the AMD 6850 or 6870 would work, if you could find it new, and might save another $50. I didn't include that as they are hit and miss to find new at that price. These parts are all readily available, generally speaking, and of new production.

EDIT:

Updated the list to not include the optical, since everyone seems to be leaving it out.

Looking good everyone! Keep em coming!
So far I gotta give it to twinkie, that should run BF4 on medium settings with a few drops here and there due to CPU.

=-D

That CPU was tested to run Farcry 3 on Ultra at 1080P and it pulled around 45 FPS. So medium on BF4 shouldn't be a problem at all for the little guy!

CPU + Motherboard: AMD FX-6300 + Gigabyte GA-970A-UD3P ($160 @ MicroCenter In-Store Combo)
I love the G3220 and expect it would have no problem maintaining good FPS in SP BF4. In MP it would probably cave. OCed this chip is comparable to a hypothetical "5-core G3220."

CPU Cooler: Zalman CNPS9900MAX-B CPU Cooler ($44.99 @ TigerDirect)
152mm height fits the 155mm height restriction in case below.

Memory: A-Data XPG V1.0 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1866 Memory ($67.99 @ Newegg)

Storage: Seagate Barracuda 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($58.24 @ Amazon)

Video Card: Club 3D Radeon R9 270 2GB Video Card ($171.98 @ Newegg)

Case: Thermaltake Urban 21 BOM ATX Mid Tower Case ($44.99 @ Newegg)
Same price as the Source 210. (MIRs aren't money, they are a waste of time)

Power Supply: Rosewill Capstone 450W 80+ Gold Certified ATX Power Supply ($59.99 @ Newegg)
The only EVGA units that are any good are the SuperFlower OEMed models. The unit proposed in Twinkies build is made by HEC, a company known for making mostly cheap mediocre or worse products across the board. There aren't many quality PSUs to choose from under $60. I'd just bite the bullet and get it right the first time around.

Total: ~$625 Shipped (includes estimated taxes for in-store pickup, shipping, to-the-door cost, MIRs NOT included in price). (~$615 after 1 MIR, I probably wouldn't waste my time)

Only problem with my build, is that AM3+ is a dead socket wink.gif Otherwise, it's the sort of machine someone might actually *want* to own, rather than the sort of machine that someone would *live with.*

Im not sure, yes it would be more stable FPS wise in multiplayer, but Postal's rig would only be a little slower then yours and its $200 cheaper. Granted I do love that you used all higher quality parts. Hard to choose.

Besides the shoddy PSU, there are 2 other questionable quality parts in the "$200 cheaper" build. Can you spot them?

Besides the motherboard which is cheap beyond all reason, not really. Also the PSU may not be good quality, but considering the power draw that system would pull, it would more then likely last a long time. You would only be using like 200W of the PSU, maybe.
But the motherboard, thats about it.
