800$ Build (Just Tower)

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone. Im looking to build budget gaming desktop for 800$. I live near Micro Center if that helps. No OS , keyboard , mouse etc.

Just the tower alone. Gaming in 1080p. Here it is what i came up with. No amd 8 cores and stuff (power consumption when overclocked)

Gonna use this computer in Europe where electricity is expensive. If someone can build something better feel free to post.

Any criticism about parts I did choose is welcome smile.gif Thank You !

You would be better off getting a set of 2x4 RAM instead of 1x8. This set has better latency if you plan to overclock and still meets the compatibility requirements for your Noctua D14

Pontiac should chime in here any minute with an optimal build for your budget.

You dont need more then 400 watts for a system with A GTX 960 in.
Also stay away from that PSU
Why you should not buy an EVGA 430 / 500 / 500B / 600B PSU

Get a Rosewill Capstone 450 watts instead.

Only if you have a Microcenter close enough to you. You can squeeze in a 4690k and bundle it with an ASRock Z97 PRO4 for only $10 more than what you'll spend on the 4590 + ASRock H97M. Just saying. Of course that's going $20 over your budget which you can sacrifice with a 128gb SSD instead of the 256gb.

The build that OP linked specced that combo from MicroCenter @ $321. The 4590 + h97 is almost $100 less.

Not sure where he got $321 from in that case.
Drop the SSD to 128GB as you said, grab a 212 EVO or a Raijintek Ereboss with the difference, and add the 4690k combo.

A 960 is pretty bad performance for the price. Just my 2 cents. Rest of the build looks decent.

Stick with what 'p4inkill3r' suggested. Just get the 4690k bundle and drop the SSD down to 128gb.
