Need help with budget build

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have a limit around $550 for a gaming rig. Prefer AMD and ATI/AMD. Not gonna OC it that much, but I will to avoid any bottleneck. I was also looking at the 555BE and unlock it. No need for monitor, mouse etc.

Budget: $550

Thanks!

Edit: How's this? picture below.

Am I missing anything?

Looks like a very solid build. There isn't much I can pick on at all. One thing is to maybe swap out the WD drive for a Samsung F3:

Slightly cheaper and you get double the storage with the same speed.

Or a more reliable power supply:

But then you'll lose the modular parts, but Corsair seems to be a better company for PSUs.

If I had to build a $550 desktop, this would be it.

Definitely don't unlock on that board. Never entrust an MSI 4+1 power phase with your high-TDP parts. Besides, the pricing on that board is extremely poor, for the same price you can get a quality 870 or 790X chipset board.
