The psu is a hazard to the build and will damage the parts. The cpu is overpriced since its out done by the 860K for less. What is your max budget?

500 dollars

Lets see...

Quad core that hasn't aged well. Replace with an Athlon. Same number of stronger cores and a cheaper, less power hungry processor.

Diablotek Case with Power Supply...

Nope. Nope. Nope. Nope. Nope. Nope-ity nope. Not happening. No way. That's probably a miss-labeled low quality 250 watt PSU built by Chinese slave children kept together with bubblegum and tears of lost innocence. You'll burn your goddamned house down.

NOPE!

Man I need quad core dual core doesnt cut out much on games these days

It'll do fine. Though I think I heard a few games absolutely require a quad-core. Fallout 4 runs with a dual-core and that's good enough for me.

Well it depends on needs And we are talking about console Overkiller so we need quad core

A Skylake i3 is actually more powerful than an FX or Athlon 4 core. The problem is that they're also $50 more so they're not worth the difference at the moment.

So keep it or not? It's just barely over the budget. (With only +$12, shouldn't be a complaint really.)

Yup you're right

You say that but the i3 is undeniably better than an Athlon 860k or fx4300. They are pentium competitions. Even though 4 cores is needed by a few games I'd rather have performance in every other game I played over lower performance to play maybe a couple extra games to play.

Well I dont wanna deny the fact that i3 is better than fx 4300 but I wanna try going for an i5 or athlon as these are also good performance wise

Is the build good now

its the best I could do to fit an i5 and a 380.

I don't know what you expected with a budget of $500 but you can't really fit in anything especially not an i7 haha.

How about it now

the I3 was okay because the hyperthreading allows it to run on games that only support quad cores.

The pentium does not have hyperthreading.

Go with an athlon over a pentium.

Also, the GTX 960 is WEAKER than the 380 you originally had.

Will get the athlon and 380 back ok?

  • 52 months ago

It's what I'd suggest. The Athlon also has the ability to be overclocked, which a Skylake Pentium lacks unless you buy a very expensive Z series motherboard.

On average with a 960 or 380 the pentium g4400 can push slightly higher minimum framerates and slightly higher average framerates when compared to an overclocked 860k while running at stock speeds. Would be nice if he included frametimes though, but it's what we have. Both will have issues with a few games especially with a 380.

Now, when comparing with the prices including overclocking motherboards,

http://pcpartpicker.com/p/DqYRdC

About $160. Some Z170 motherboards go on sale for about $85 too.

http://pcpartpicker.com/p/BPgNsY

With cheapest MOSFET-heatsinked A88X motherboard that I know of. $145.

So $15 more ignoring sales you can get slightly better performance (excluding frametimes which is unknown to me) at stock speeds and an upgrade path to something far better.

On the other hand, there are a few games which won't run on a processor with only two threads (without a mod), and some with framerate drops like AC Unity or Ryse as shown in this video.
