Hey! I'm a console gamer hoping to get into PC gaming. I need a parts list $400 budget that will be about as powerful as the N64... Just kidding. But for real it needs to give the Xbox One a run for it's money. Thanks!!

(O.S. dosen't need to be included nor any other peripherals)

This build used a lot of parametric filters, so substitute what you want. The case is probably the weakest link.

What is a parametric filter?

At the top right, when you're picking your parts, you can click "Add from filter." This will give you the lowest priced option of the items that are left over after selecting your specifications for the part in the filters down the right side.

Okay thank you. What is different about that motherboard that makes it good for overclocking? If you don't mind me asking.

Well, usually with B anything chipsets, you can't overclock. However, a lot of manufacturers unlocked them. Its not the best or easiest, but you can still hit a nice overclock on it.
