Another Budget Build

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
Hello wonderful people of OCN, I am back in request of help for a budget build that I'm trying to put together for my brother. So, my brother has been using a Dell XPS laptop for a while and wants to transition to the wonderful world of desktops and as such, I am trying to help him put together parts for a build. The budget of this build is around $1000 CANADIAN DOLLARS. It will be used for everyday tasks along with some gaming (games like diablo 3, possibly a little bit of BF4). The computer will not be overclocked so there is no need for the "K" processors which can help in shaving off some dollars. In terms of peripherals, he needs a monitor that is 24", 1920x1080 and has compatibility of mounting. Since I'm a long time Intel user, I would like the build to be Intel.

In terms of sites, I use ncix, canadacomputers, newegg, pcpartpicker, etc. Thanks for all the help guys!!

-Will

I actually don't need the OS, maybe replace that with a samsung EVO 120 gb? Also, what about a msi gaming 270 instead of the 760? I can also save some money there. Is that processor going to suffice for gaming?

I went over budget, noooooo! But I have a good reason.

CPU: Intel Xeon E3-1230 V3 3.3GHz Quad-Core Processor ($267.33 @ Newegg Canada)
Motherboard: MSI H87M-G43 Micro ATX LGA1150 Motherboard ($89.99 @ Memory Express)
Memory: A-Data XPG V1.0 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory ($76.36 @ DirectCanada)
Storage: Seagate Barracuda 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($62.99 @ Canada Computers)
Video Card: Gigabyte Radeon R9 270X 2GB Video Card ($209.99 @ NCIX)
Case: Fractal Design Core 1000 USB 3.0 MicroATX Mid Tower Case ($39.98 @ Newegg Canada)
Power Supply: Rosewill Capstone 450W 80+ Gold Certified ATX Power Supply ($70.98 @ Newegg Canada)
Optical Drive: Samsung SH-224DB/BEBE DVD/CD Writer ($16.79 @ DirectCanada)
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 8.1 (32/64-bit) ($107.41 @ DirectCanada)
Monitor: LG 24EN33TW-B 60Hz 23.6" Monitor ($139.99 @ Memory Express)
Total: $1081.81
So you might have noticed the Xeon up there, that is because it is basically a 4770 without the pricetag. You cant overclock it, but its still fast and will last a long time. I am honestly shocked I found that Rosewill Capstone for that price, like seriously cheap.
I'm not thrilled with the monitor I chose, but its still good. I personally would go with the Asus VS247H as I have 3 and they are all fantastic, one of the best displays I've ever looked at.
