Alright so here's the deal I have a $900 budget to build this PC for gaming. I would need everything except for a mouse a keyboard and a screen. I am new to building PC's so I'm just trying to get the best things that I can with $900. Thanks

  • Locked i5
  • 380X will be better than the 960 in most games
  • 250GB SSD for boot drive, programs and any slow loading games you want
  • Tier 2 PSU
  • Excellent smaller form factor case
  • It's a locked cpu but I'd still recommend adding something like a Cryorig H7 CPU cooler to get even lower temps and definitely less noise than the stock cooler

This list has an i5-4690K and an R9 390X. This will kill anything you throw at it, while looking amazing. The PSU is fully modular and has all-black cables, the case is great looking with a PSU cover and side window, and the motherboard and video card are both beautiful and fit a very nice looking red and black color scheme. I realize this goes a little bit over budget. If you want, you can remove the CPU cooler and use the stock. OR, if you've no interest in overclocking, you can get a non-K i5 and save quite a bit of cash. However, I recommend this build either way.

Good luck. Hope this helped you.

A small form factor Mini-ITX build, what a killer case @ 35 bucks eh??

A 9.2 rated PSU on Tweaktown..

PCPARTPICKER actual users have reported 5-10s booting times with the Seagate HYBRID DRIVE...

See if you are eligible for a Students free copy of Windows & Office, I guess a .edu mail is needed for US & other regions.. Saves you a 90 bucks which you can put into getting a better Z170 Motherboard & Higher RAM..
