Guess finding out the intended purpose of the build makes sense.

As is his current system is the same basic specs as mine. 4790k/980ti/16gb. It would handle 4k just fine.

OP could also be making this thread to be "funny".

The thing being,

CPU/mobo = $150 (FX 6300 and $50 mobo)
Ram 8gb = $30 (Ram's cheap in the states)
GPU/Used R9 290/290x = $200ish
Hdd = $50ish
Psu = $50ish
Case = $20 - $50
OS = Windows 10 can be installed and used without a key indefinitely right now. I installed win 10 on my backup rig months ago and still haven't put in a key.


You're looking at $310 - $340 right there. That still gives you $200 to play with. Depending on the price you catch a 290/290x for that can give you more to spend on the CPU or mobo.

I think it could be done.

OK, I see what you're saying, but the total price is just a tad shy of what it should be.

Yea, didn't add the GPU to the price. biggrin.gif



Here's a basic build using part picker. Search around for a used 290/290x and I think you'd have a pretty cheap rig that could pull 4k @ 30+ fps. Maybe not fully at console level visuals, but, hell of a lot higher res.

PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant

CPU: AMD FX-6300 3.5GHz 6-Core Processor ($89.99 @ Amazon)
Motherboard: MSI 970A-G43 ATX AM3+ Motherboard ($64.89 @ OutletPC)
Memory: PNY Anarchy 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-2133 Memory ($37.99 @ Amazon)
Storage: Seagate Barracuda 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($46.89 @ OutletPC)
Case: Rosewill WolfStone ATX Mid Tower Case ($39.99 @ Newegg)
Power Supply: Corsair Builder 600W 80+ Bronze Certified ATX Power Supply ($58.99 @ Newegg)
Total: $338.74
Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available

I just picked that mobo because it was cheap and supported ddr3 2133. The cheaper ones only supported up to 2000 or some junk.


*I didn't really look much at that case past seeing that it can fit an aftermark cooler later on. I'd go with a more open case to allow that 290 more room to breath. You get the point though.

ok so I did some research and found out that yes the NVidia shield TV and the latest GeForce Experience betas offer 4k game streaming

"Today, we’re bolstering Share’s streaming capabilities with the introduction of 1920x1080 60 FPS YouTube Live Streaming and 1920x1080 60 FPS Twitch Streaming, and upgrading our PC-to-SHIELD-to-TV GameStream technology with 4K 60 FPS 5.1 Surround Sound support for SHIELD Android TV. Download the required GeForce Experience Beta client update here.

GameStream: Now At 4K 60 FPS With 5.1 Surround Sound"

http://www.geforce.com/whats-new/articles/geforce-experience-beta-update-introduces-new-gamestream-and-streaming-features

So going with that I would suggest OP to get a second 980Ti for his main gaming rig, get a shield TV and go this route smile.gif

I think holding out until the 880K is available for sale is the real option here. I think its supposed to be like $95? Don't quote me on that.

You can pair the AMD Athlon™ X4 processor with a low-cost Radeon™ R7 360 discrete graphics card for excellent 1080p online gaming performance, but this hardware has the chops to go even further: the AMD Athlon™ X4 880K can propel a moderate Radeon™ R7 370-class graphics card into smooth 1440p and even 4K frame rates on some of the most popular online games in the world, at high detail settings with anti-aliasing enabled.
