Low budget - G3258 Build

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Hey guys/gals,

It's time to get back into building another PC for this year, it's been a while since I've had a proper desktop. I'll be using what's left of my tax return.

I already have the OS, SSD, and a temporary GPU so no need for those.

For the rest my budget is NO MORE THAN $300.


Here's my parts list so far:

Pentium G3258

GIGABYTE GA-H81M-DS2V

G.SKILL Value Series 8GB

Fractal Design Core 1000

Rosewill CAPSTONE-450


Now I understand that these new Pentiums are little OCing monsters so down the road I will be getting an aftermarket cooler.


If y'all have any suggestions or changes let me know! But keep my budget in mind please thumb.gif

I second this.
Or you could save a little bit and get an Antec Earthwatts 380 watt.

Okay, so I changed the PSU to the Capstone.

I've also got a lead on an R9 270x that I'll be picking up for $75.

If all looks good I'd like to place my order in the next few hours.

Thanks guys!

Also get this RAM instead:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820226398&nm_mc=AFC-C8Junction&cm_mmc=AFC-C8Junction-_-na-_-na-_-na&cm_sp=&AID=10446076&PID=3938566&SID=


$1 cheaper, but it has a higher speed with the same cas latency while also using lower voltage. Your motherboard selection supports 1600 so mindswell make use of it. It's also worth noting certain non-Z97 motherboards are voltage limited at 1.2V for the G3258. I can't say if that board is or isn't. Might be worth doing some research into.

Other than that looks like you're good.

Yeah, I read some people were able to get to about 4.2 stable at 1.2v so that shouldn't be a problem.

I won't be doing anything too intensive with this machine so I'd be comfortable with that.

Also, thanks for the Ram suggestion, didn't even see those.

Yeah 4.2 @ 1.2v should not be a problem. I was able to do 4.2 @ 1.15v on my G3258 chip. thumb.gif

You won't need a fancy cooler. In fact, the stock cooler is probably good up to 1.2v with reasonable temps(less than 80C).

Yeah definitely! It seems that it's possible to run that in the mid-60's! Plus I've got all this cold Northwest air to chill it biggrin.gif

Well thanks guys, hardware has been ordered except for the case. Was able to get a brand new Lian Li A05b for $40. Might make a small build log in this section if I get the cables tidied enough!
