Exaclty what the title says, oh i also need a monitor and keyboard/mouse. I don't need an OS though. All parts must be available on amazon ;-;

Budget is $500 - $750

i wanna play dope games in 1080p 60fps on high :C i can settle for medium ;-;. Ima be going to school in a few months overseas. Some say opt for a gaming laptop but dayum those are expensive :C.

I think there's a nice dell gaming laptop newly released for $800. Read about it on tomshardware I think.

Anyways:

No mail in rebates. Small mini-itx case, with wifi motherboard. Will run pretty much anything at high settings 1080p 60fps. I think this will block one of the drive bays though, because the GPU is big.

oo. cool build. It can house a 3.5'' i'm assuming. How about an additional SSD? Is there anything extra i need in terms of wiring and air flow? Thanks in advance :D

If you're looking for an SSD I'd recommend Samsung's 850 EVO series. Not sure if you need any case fans, you'll probably be okay but someone else can confirm.

The mobo makes it more expensive since it's hard to find a good mini itx LGA1151 board for cheap. The one you recommended, i can't get it from amazon ;-;. I have the option of going for a 4th gen i5 :C. and getting a $40-$60 mobo in comparison to my $114. Not sure what to do e-e. Also i don't see any reviews on that gpu :C. Can i trust it?

Hmm i kind of like this build because i still get the gpu and i get an ssd :C as well as a more expensive and capable Board. Only gripe is that this will cost way more with amazon and that's where i'm getting all my parts. Off course i can upgrade to a 6600k or a 6700 i7 later so the i3 wouldn't be bad BUT i need a cpu capable of moderate to semi advanced multitasking so the i3 will not do.

:o not bad. and i get an SSD hmm. idk ;-;. Will i play Black Desert Online on like very high well with this? or high? Can that case fit in my carry on luggage? How is wiring in it? do you recommend the i5 6400 or 6500?

  • 52 months ago

idk , maybe in medium setting it can stay in 60fps average.... idk how big/small your luggage but the case size is 22.2cm x 28.5cm x 18.1cm or you can see details here.... idk but it maybe need patient or maybe some adjustment to fit because of small space... 6500 better than 6400 but it will need more money to pay....
