its straight forward, 600$ PC tower with or without Windows, your choice. JUST the tower, rest is up to you
Made one earlier on a $600 budget. The extra cost is from peripherals.
PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant
EDIT: It may be a bit above $600 exluding moniter, optical drive, and keyboard / mouse combo, but I'm waiting until Thanksgiving / Black Friday / Cyber Monday to purchase this build.
you don't need the FX 6350. It is just a bit higher clocked than the FX 6300 but costs 20$ more. The FX 6300/6350 is meant to be overclocked.
Ah whoops! I can't believe it took me an hour (once you've pointed it out) to realize I posted the wrong build! Here's the right one without peripherals:
There ya go!
haha xD nice build!
That's really cool, its very different from the other builds, and it was cool that you put the peripherals.
Why the old i3?
Budget. I wanted to fit in the SSD, which is going substantially speed up system boot times and overall speed of the operating system.
'Kay, I respect that
Could also go for SSHD really, there's not much of a difference between SSD and SSHD. But it's your choice and I respect that.
As far as speed goes, there is a huge difference. SSHD drive simply have a small SSD that acts like a cache for the most used files.
Now there are dual-hybrid drives that combined an SSD and HDD in one unit and show up as two drives on an operating system. Unlike a SSHD which is only a single drive.
Some of them, yes, but not all of them. And it might get a bit cheaper aswell. But, again, your choice and my respect.
An Athlon? That's for a 400-500$ build I would put a better CPU
I agree, an FX would make much more sense. FX-6300 or so.
This is actually a build am planning to do in christmas and my budget was around $600 including monitor. CPU,MObO and HDD will be bought at microcenter.
Here we go! I wish I had some more time to do editing, but not much of a matter right now. Now I'm gonna ask first what games you play, because that could affect your GPU decision. So on with the parts:
CPU: Intel i3 4170. 2 cores, 4 threads, and hyper threading. This is literally a gaming beast and paves your path to an i5 but, it might be worth paying some extra or even just the same amount of money for the skylake i3. Like I said I didn't have time to edit.
CPU Cooler: Use stock for a bit, get a cryorig H7 later.
Motherboard: Reliable, fits the color scheme, looks nice and is affordable.
RAM: Reliable, fits the color scheme, has upgradability to 16 gigs (as long as you get the same exact model)), affordable
Storage: Just a 120Gig SSD. Load your OS onto here, and save up money for an HDD, because their not expensive, but this is a great deal on one and I urge you to get an SSD first.
GPU: The PowerColor PCS+ R9 380. PowerColor is a reliable brand and their PCS+ is top of the line. However, once you get the card, put down the fan curve so the fans aren't roaring loud. Use MSI Afterburner to put down the fan speed or overclock.
Case: Has no optical drive, but installing without one is easy. P.S: You can get a windows key from reddit for like 20 bucks or something and it's actually legit! My friend literally did this and it works! Anyways, if you get it off of Reddit then you pretty much have to install it via USB. If you want, you can get a legit CD and external optical drive and that works too! Anyways, this is one of the most reliable and one of the best bang for buck cases there are. Looks sexy, steel construction, PSU shroud, side window. This case is really worth buying.
PSU: Very reliable, affordable for it's quality, full modularity which means easier cable management since you can take any PSU cable out that you aren't using from the PSU. It also has gold efficiency, so it's very good for upgrades and handling parts like these and better, but it is only 550 watts, so don't go all 980 ti over this yet.
If you have any questions about the list, you can contact me!
I play Dota 2, assorted indie games, and emulated games like Tomb Raider , and Dishonored
I like the Seagate, nice storage for it's price :3
Nice CPU in there, but you could of lowered it to an i3 and got a slight better video card. Also this is based on MIR's, which is REALLY annoying sometimes.
I hate that my laptop is 650$$ and that it sucks worse than a build from like 300$$. These builds posted here are awesome :3
Nice pc right there, the Hitachi doesn't support 6Gb/sata but for the rest I personally have no complains. For this budget you don't really need it, and most likely wasn't able to fit it in and get the awesome GPU.
