Mine craft and gmod recording and mine craft shaders not recording. And streaming mine craft.
http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/p/qG3nf7 - Hope this helps, Do not use this as a final build, only took about 5 minutes to put it together. If you wanna go ahead with something like this ask me and ill do a more in depth build and why i chose the parts.
This is just a general list of what you could buy, yes there are alternatives with AMD and such (Im NOT saying this is the best thing you'll get).
Hope this helps, Like i said if you need anymore help just ask.
P.S. My brother had a build very similar to this for 1 1/2 years and he could even run BF4 1080p Medium settings so this is a "real bang for your buck." :D
I'd like a better cup cause I may be doing some blender rendering like intros and stuff.
I will be playing gmod and recording it and may be playing like mirrors edge and stuff like this.
It's also going to be Minecraft modded a little bit
All which this CPU can easily handle? It has 2 cores, and hyper threading.
I'd like to have a i5 because it's in the budget range, but it's not as good as a i7 but better than a i3 the I 5 4460 or i5 6400 are great choices, but since gmod and Minecraft are cup intensive and recording software also takes up cup usage that's why I want a i5
PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant
A Solid dual core CPU with Hyperthreading creating 2 physical cores and 2 virtual cores for a total count of 4. A Low TDP of 54 Watts and with a base clock speed of a healthy 3.7GHz. This CPU also comes with a heatsink and fan.
MSI H81M-P33 Micro ATX
Motherboard: There was no point in getting a fancy Z87 or Z97 board for a locked CPU. For the purpose of this system, I didn't need features like RAID, SSD Caching or M.2 either. The H81M-P33 is a nice reliable board that has just what's needed. You'll need to upgrade to the latest BIOS for full Haswell Refresh compatibility.
Bang for Buck RAM(2 x 4GB)
This 8 gb kit of ram provides all the memory needed and more when it comes to gaming and other processes. Low latency, DDR3 1600, and works out of the box. Easily purchase the same kit for 16GB. RAM is RAM.
Seagate Barracuda 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM
The All purpose and Reliable SATA III Hard Drive. With a Healthy 1tb of storage you can have a plethora of games and other files without worrying of using too much storage.
Asus Radeon R9 380 4GB
TSmooth 1080p performance (Skyrim, Bioshock Infinite, Starcraft II, Heroes of the Storm), 30-60 FPS on average. Simple fan control/overclock through ASUS software. Good build quality, backplate is a plus. Silent at idle, fans haven't been louder than other system fans under load. Temperature generally under 70 C (60/30 idle w/ 0db fan off/on). Single 8-pin power connector instead of 2x 6-pin. Virtual super resolution is easy to enable and works as desired.
Thermaltake Versa H25
Good options for fans & HDD locations and very easy to work on .. The front fits 2 fans 120mm and just snap into the removable inner panel and has a filter built into the front bezel !! The front header harness for power , usb and audio is very organized to make a clean build. Some complain of it being flimsy but in its class its perfect aka not to heavy and bulky to move around that said yes you will get a little flex when you pull the sides off and the front bezel when doing the build but not a big issue. Good location for power supply got a Thermaltake 430 watt PS USB and power buttons are in at the top so its more convenient so you dont have any usb sticking out the front.
This power supply is definitely enough for this build and provides some space to upgrade in the future. The semi modular cables also help because you don't need to install them all in this build which helps with air flow.
Building/Accessories: OS and aftermarket CPU Cooler -After acquiring an OS simply install it using a USB Drive like this. Your CPU will come shipped with a stock CPU Cooler but if would like a better one I highly recommend a Corsair H60 or H100i
Wireless Network Adapter
Installed card, PC detected it immediately, pointed it to the CD for drivers and configured it for my wireless network...maybe 5 minutes? No issues; excellent signal strength on 2nd floor with router on 1st floor, approximately 60 feet away
If any of you have any questions then I would love it if you would comment and I'll be sure to answer them. Any other comments are welcome too if you have anything to say. Enjoy Your east Of A Machine :)
No I want an i5 quad core more cores for editing and rendering derps
