Advices on new cheap build

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Lets ask from here, you guys might know best about these. My old plans was to get e8400/8500 build but nobody sells them for nice price so i decided to upgrade little bit.

CPU: Intel G3258 + Phanteks PH TC-14PE
GPU: 750ti / 960 / AMDs this years low end / something else
Mobo: Z87 / Z97 ???
Memory: Corsair Vengeance LP 1600 8gb
SSD: Crucial MX100 128gb
PSU: HX650
Case: Fractal R3

I have no idea which mobo to put. Do i oc it? Absolutely, to the max. One demand i have, no Gigabyte (Hate that bios).
MSI, Asus, Evga or Asrock? If i say around 200-230$ is the max i will pay. Maybe more if its worth it.

Im building this for oc'ing and older games. CSGO/Dota2 mostly.

E: Added already own memory, case and cooler. Asrocks Anniversary looks pretty good still for mobo

Seems good. Perhaps the ASrock anniversary edition mobo? http://www.asrock.com/mb/intel/z97%20anniversary/ - it goes for approx 75 EUR. The lowest I would consider would be the Asus Socket 1150 H81M-K (~40 eur) although a sensible compromise would be Asus Socket 1150 B85M-G (~55 eur). ITX is usually a bit overpriced so for a budget build mATX is usually better option.

Also you do not need that high power PSU unless you have some specific reason to go for it. For example, Chieftec PSU 450W Chief GPA-450B8 85+ (~30 eur) would be already adequate for your build considering the GFX card you are aiming for. Might make sense also to throw in a cheapish aftermarket tower cooler.

Ah. Im going to sell this my build and get little bit older so i can use few parts for this new one. Such as memory, psu and tower cooler. Thats why that PSU is overkill thumb.gif

That Asrock Anniversary looks nice for this build

Here in the US you can get a MSI z97 Gaming 3 for $119usd after $10 rebate. It's the one I've been looking at to go with a G3258, which yes you most definitely over clock...

I don't need that much board, but it sure opens up options for future upgrades....
