Everything of my computer was used, save for the CPU cooler and the case, and PSU

Not to hijack the thread but I have a similar question for my nephew's build. Around 700-900 budget maybe not including monitors etc. is it wise to buy old hi end stuff like 2600k + good mobo then OC it or get newer tech like i5 6500 with half decent mobo and keep it stock? He won't be playing anywhere near 4k or VR or all maxed out settings.

That's a very good question and really comes down to price and how comfortable you are with used parts and the possibility that they might fail. Chances are any 2600K you get will be pretty long in the tooth and may not be a very good option if you want something you can count on to last for a few years. Those Sandy Bridge chips tended to be great overclockers, but when you're buying something used, you don't have any way of knowing for sure whether it was kept at stock speeds or overclocked and overvolted and used to run SETI@Home 24/7 for four years. That's why for my own piece of mind, I tend to avoid buying used CPUs and GPUs.

I've never had problems with used CPU or GPU. The hd5870 I bought used here 4 years ago still works fine.

However old decent motherboards are expensive and hard to come by and capacitors do age and eventually fail
post #15 of 20
Here is what i'd buy RIGHT NOW if I was you....



Intel Core i5-6500 6MB Skylake Quad-Core 3.2 GHz LGA 1151 65W BX80662I56500 Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 530

MSI B150M Mortar LGA 1151 Intel B150 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

WD Blue 1TB Desktop Hard Disk Drive - 7200 RPM SATA 6Gb/s 64MB Cache 3.5 Inch - WD10EZEX - OEM

MSI GeForce GTX 1060 DirectX 12 GTX 1060 GAMING X 3G 3GB 192-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready ATX Video Card

SeaSonic M12II 520 Bronze EVO Edition 520W ATX12V v2.3 / EPS 12V v2.91 SLI 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Full Modular Active PFC ...

Ballistix Sport LT 8GB (2 x 4GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 2400 (PC4 19200) Memory Model BLS2K4G4D240FSB

Kingston SSDNow V300 Series 2.5" 60GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) SV300S37A/60G

TOTAL: $728 Not including TAX and SHIPPING. (NEWEGG)

This does NOT include the case, this is more of a personal choice so I always leave that up to the builder. ALSO, If you need to save cash take out the SSD, and go for an AMD gpu such as the RX 470. You can find a cheap one for under 200.

Hope this helps. I didn't read much of the other replies.


EDIT: I forgot to add a cooler, I recommend a Hyper 212+. This will allow you to do a mild overclock to squeeze a little bit more out of this pc.


Laaaaaaastly.....!!!!!!!! Don't wait! Honestly, don't wait... new hardware is right around the corner but will always be right around the corner. Performance gains will be marginal at best, and you'll be paying a premium price as Intel always jacks up prices at launch, so IMO... out of your price range anyways.

You could try this: http://pcpartpicker.com/list/VGhJM8
The $700 point is tough to hit, but mine includes 16gb ram and 120gb ssd, very well balanced. Stock cooler is fine for a non-overclocking cpu. Reuse an old hard drive, and buy Windows from a site like Kingwin for ~20 bucks. Will smash 1080p gaming. Oh, and grab Arctic MX-4 thermal paste for 5 bucks.

I'd 10-1 rather have this system for less.

Except the OP asked for Intel/Nvidia
post #19 of 20
Maybe this should be in the Intel section instead of general processor discussions thumb.gif

Regardless I noticed the RX480 is OOS so the price is inflated $100
post #20 of 20
I'd think it would be best to find as much as you could used. The 600 - 700$ price point IS hard to hit given you'd like Intel / Nvidia, OP.

Nilareon's Rig is the best I have seen and is still missing a case. If you'd consider AMD, it opens up more possibilities.
