You cannot, cannot use this part in your build - CPU
Intel Pentium G3258 3.2GHz Dual-Core Processor
$62.99 FREE $62.99 Newegg
This CPU is only fine if you are not going to play AAA titles after 2013 or mid 2014
You have to settle for atleast an i3 and cut your GPU Budget.
Buy Windows @ G2A.com - it is really cheap there.
The cooler and thermal paste are a waste of money (cooler was ok if you overclock but you can't OC the i5) - it is better to give $20 to someone homeless.
I suggest atleast a 500w PSU Bronze, you can get those for like $10 more. Don't listen to anyone who tells you that a GOLD or "high quality" $100 PSU is needed, that is not true and it's just false peace of mind for most people (like vitamin pills).
- This is about $20 over $1000, you can easily save $20 buying windows from a CD KEY site like G2A. It is as legit as buying it from best buy. You can find windows 8 as low as $30 which comes with a free upgrade to win 10.
I cannot stress enough that the Pentium is an incredibly weak link in an otherwise powerful build, it doesn't run some games, and Witcher 3 and a lot other modern titles boot up but are essentially unplayable. I have no idea how someone hasn't pointed that out yet.Edited by a3venom - 12/21/15 at 7:55am
