Description

Wanted to make a budget computer, just using this rig for online mmorpg such as Tera / Path of Exile / DmC and some other games.

Do comment on this for me to learn. wish to built a more budget rig that suits home PC theatre and Microsoft office works. Perhaps using a AMD CPU for lower costs yet performance is great for the price.

No no no, BUDGET means like $400-600, not ~$1k!

EDIT: Unless my being only able to buy from Amazon is hiking the prices up :/

I don't know if I'd consider this budget, either . . . even my definition of budget is stretching it for some people: I'd argue anything at 1k and under for gaming as being budget-constrained.

Definitely some solid choices here, though. As stated, 8gb would've been fine and you might've been able to sink the extra coin into a cooler.

Also, can someone explain the monitor to me? I'm assuming you didn't actually spend that much on it and it's leftover from an old build?

Cables look a little messy but it's hard to tell. I'll hold off on a vote until seeing some clean shots of the workmanship. I'm THAT GUY . . . the one that upvotes builds no matter what the parts are so long as some TLC went into putting it together ;D

The cables are stuffed at the base as it can't be round-about the case. I thought so too, but i decided in 750W was for future purpose and the RAM, yea its kind of over.

no, its not a leftover, its a Samsung monitor. I did not really know how much of a spec i needed, but went for the parts that were better rated.

But did you spend 250 on it?

You could've found a 23" 120hz display at that price point.

Infact i would look at buying a Hyper 212 evo for better cooling. But other than that looks great.

Very good build, good parts generally. However, if you are just using it for gaming then 8GB of RAM would've been more than sufficient. And possibly the PSU is slightly overkill, but for crossfire in the future it may be good.

Well done, a solid build indeed.

Overall the computer looks good, especially for a first build but I would not consider a $1400 machine a budget computer, it's still a lot of money.

In my opinion, you wasted too much money on the power supply, for 1/4 less or even half the price of that Corsair 750W you can get a XFX Pro 550W Core Edition, enough for that machine.

Solid Choices. I bet it runs like a champ. Time to get that aftermarket cooler and boost up the speed a little bit!

Good Job.

Oh, okay. Would you mind listing it as a custom part instead of saying it's a Phantom 410? It will save a lot of people from confusion although it may be too late =P

Nice build, but I don't think you needed 16 gigs of ram, because most high performance games only use maybe 8.

Was unaware of that. In my taks manager i only have a physical memory of 3221MB where is the rest of it? Any idea to help me out with this?

If you have a 32 bit operating system your ram is limited to about 4 gigs. That might be your problem.

I think ASRock used to be a part of Asus, but they broke off. They do make quality components. I'm not absolutely sure about them being part of Asus but they do make good components.
