Description

I found a large lot of parts on craigslist for $150 and decided to use them and build a lower end gaming computer for my son. CPU-Craigslist find MB-Craigslist find RAM- Craigslist find GPU-Craigslist find PSU- Had an old one laying around from previous tear down Storage-Again had this laying around Case- Found this on sale, (feels a little on the cheaper side, but works great for $35) The mb didnt have a usb 3.0 header so i found an adapter on amazon for cheap to work with the front usb headers on the case. Overall im excited to have this build turn out for so cheap. My son plays fortnite on this (med settings at 35ish fps)

I used a FX 4300 for a while in my first build and I had it paired with a R7 260X and that combo actually games very well, its my primary rig for iRacing now and I can run with all the track/car details maxed out and all the fluff/ background details turned off and stay in the 80 FPS range, plus this was my primary rig before I went to VR.

nice with your next pay check you could get a slightly higher up graphics card to play fortnite on higher settings and higher fps. just a thought. but looks good for a amd fx build

Agreed, a 1050 or 1050 Ti would do wonders to this pc

A used RX 460 like this would be better, but only because of the fact it doesn't need any external power

You can probably get drivers off the oem website, but that's an option too
