I need help cutting costs of this build!

Hello,

I would like to cut the cost off this build by around $100 - $150. It will be used for gaming.

  • Needs to be MicroATX
  • Won't be overclocked
  • Will be used for DotA 2 and equivalent games
  • I would prefer SSD due to the benefits it yields, but this can be changed for the greater good

Thanks!

I would definitely go with skylake and ddr4 at this point. With a GTX 950 or a RX460 you could go with the i3-6100.. The i3 would perform perfectly fine. You could go with the i5-6500 but the i3 would be fine.

95 bucks for that psu is insane. No way its worth that amount of money. Not even in fantasy land. :)

I would get the MX300 which is larger and slightly cheaper.
