I'll be doing gaming and video editing
Not going to be doing heavy graphics gaming
Yet another take on the AM3+ build for this:
PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant
I believe the price there includes shipping on everything. Give the FX-8320E a conservative overclock into the mid 4ghz range. The board and heatsink and PSU will all handle this just fine in this configuration.
Do you need an OS? a Keyboard, mouse or monitor? is this in USD?
If not here is a build without any of that included in USD.
I bought everything on this list (except for the CPU Cooler), all for under $600. It took me about 3 weeks to get all parts ordered as I was waiting patiently for lowest prices possible. If I would have taken the average retail for each item, and not worried about cost, it would have been closer to $900. Good luck!
CPU AMD FX-6300 3.5GHz 6-Core Processor $98.89
CPU Cooler Corsair H60 54.0 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler $59.99
Thermal Compound Arctic Silver 5 High-Density Polysynthetic Silver 3.5g Thermal Paste $4.58
Motherboard ASRock 970 Pro3 R2.0 ATX AM3+ Motherboard $74.99
Memory G.Skill Ripjaws X Series 32GB (4 x 8GB) DDR3-1600 Memory $130.98
Storage (bought 2) Toshiba Product Series:DT01ACA 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive $39.99
Video Card EVGA GeForce GT 610 2GB Video Card $44.99
Case Corsair 200R ATX Mid Tower Case $59.99
Power Supply CoolMax 500W 80+ Certified ATX Power Supply $37.99
Optical Drive LG GH24NSC0 DVD/CD Writer $12.99
Operating System Microsoft Windows 10 Home OEM (64-bit) $89.99
Case Fan (bought 5) Masscool FD06025S1M3/4 19.2 CFM 60mm Fan $2.68
For the combined price of that CPU, heatsink, paste, and GPU, you could have had an i5-6600 w/HD530 graphics, which would be better than the FX-6300 + GT610 on that horrible motherboard in every measurable way. 50% Better single threaded performance, 20% better multi-threaded performance, better GPU render and compute capabilities, better compute efficiency, support for more instructions, better fixed function video decoder capabilities (H.265 / VP9)....
It's also a shame to pay money for a coolmax PSU. You'd have to pay me to dispose of one of those rotten horrible power supplies.
I'm sorry to tell you this, but I would not advise "sharing" that build as advise, rather, a a teachable moment for what not to do with $600.
Reminds me of this.
I like this one
Do you think I can run dayz or rust on highest setting?
