Hello, this is my first budget build but i haven't built it yet so i just felt like posting the parts here c:
All prices are in Australian Dollar and are bought at MSY, a great computer and electronics retailer.
Link to my Part List: http://au.pcpartpicker.com/user/Atomicwaffles/saved/4ztrxr
CPU: AMD FX-6300 3.5GHz (I was told it could be air-cooled overclocked to 4.8/9) 6-cores -I chose this AMD cpu because of two things, 6 cores and the insane price for the speed and what it has to offer. I do video editing and rendering a fair amount so this would definitely help me speed it up and also newer games take good use of the extra 2 cores so i will see some better performance.
CPU Cooler: I went with the CM Hyper 212x because it was a newer version of the 212's and it costed the same as the EVO so obviously i went with the newer one.
Motherboard: ASRock 980DE3 has everything i need and a bit more so that was an easy choice.
RAM: Kingston Fury Black Series 2x4Gb looks very, very nice and it was a reliable brand so i went with that.
Storage: SSD: Crucial M500 240GB is a reliable, insanely cheap and even though its writing speed is a bit slow, $89 for a 240Gb ssd was just impossible to say no to. HDD: WD Caviar Blue 1TB was plenty of storage and i did not need this hard disk to run fast so i chose the blue.
Case: Corsair Graphite Series 230T Grey with 2 blue LED fans at the front was an epic looking case and had plenty of storage for all my parts.
PSU (Power Supply Unit): EVGA 500W 80+ Bronze is a lot of power for my pc, around double the power i need but i will need more for future upgrades so...yeah, great brand as well.
You may ask me where my graphics card is and i actually already have a GPU so i didn't need to buy another one and a Graphics card is all up to you depending on what your needs are for gaming but my GTX 750 is already good enough for me c:
Thanks for reading and please comment for suggestions as i haven't bought it yet, i could still make changes.
