ThoughtA's Build Guide: Entry Level Intel Gaming Build

Claymoresama 2 Builds 1 point 6 months ago

Great build it reminds me of my first build. My first build was about ~580 USD and was rocking a pentium 3258, 8gb ram, and a r9 270 (which was a little more powerful than a 750ti for a few bucks more). Great build I hope it lasts a long time.

I think this is a great first build. I hope you get many years of use out of that hardware

Nice and smart upgrade path. Yeah I've seen the ivy bridge chips for idiotic prices. I think you're wise to wait for Ryzen. I pray AMD shocks everyone

Why all the storage? Don't get me wrong I like the build I think it's interesting to say the least. It'd be nice to see more pics if possible. How's that 2500k holding up after all these years. I hope to get many years out of my 4690k. My friend still rocks his 2600k and the only thing holding him back is a GPU update.

For gaming an i3 is better. That being said you could go amd and overclocking the crap out of it but Thats alot of hassle for new ppl. Games need good single core performance which is what the i3 does well. The quad core requirements of some games can be met modestlt by hyper threading on the i3. Also keep in mind that an amd 8 core is really more like a weak quad core when it comes to gaming.

Great build. I hope your wife enjoys it. It's a solid budget build. My only concern is the 430watt psu for future cards, but as you said in the description, the cards are getting much more efficient these days.

Ive heard conflicting messages on whether or not its enough. I figure its always better to get a little more than a little less. Especially if you end up OCing it.

Great budget build. Reminds me of my first one. I built mt friend's pc in the same case as you. Not bad. The only thing I can say I'm not crazy about is the 430watt psu. That's pretty small, but just be careful. The 750ti is just fine but if you upgrade your gpu down the road you'll have a hard time finding a gpu that works with that psu. For example my r9 380 required 550 watt minimum so i had to upgrade my 500 watt evga psu that i started with. Best of luck i hope you like your system it looks nice.

If you get a hyper 212 evo just beware it wont fit in many cases. Either way best of luck.

I have updated the list of parts. Obviously the part prices aren't the best. This has been a pc build that i've upgraded over time when I had the money to do so. Either way I hope you enjoy.

I'll update it in a bit. But I can tell you what I had:

First: The case was originally a Raidmax Vortex V3 ATX-403WB Processor was Pentium G3258 I didnt have the ssd or the samsung hdd (came from old laptop) The new case has no optical drive bays so my asus dvd drive is just sitting in the old case One part i forgot to add to the list was the Creative Soundblaster Audigy Fx 5.1 sound card which was added later on.

The hyper 212 wasnt added to the system until i got the i5. I oc'ed the pentium on stock cooler for a while and it worked out great for me.

Also my psu was a EVGA 100-W1-500-KR 500W but that wouldnt have been enough for the r9 380 which was also an upgrade.

My original gpu was a MSI R9 270. I think thats about it.

Prices arent accurate. Was to lazy to go back and put up what i paid. Maybe ill dig up the receipts later

Great job. I built a rig in the same price bracket about a year ago and had similar results. I hope youre enjoying that build. How is that SSD? Ive seen it alot but heard mixed things about its performance.

Claymoresama submitter 2 Builds 1 point 35 months ago

I figured so. I plan to get a good overclocking mobo later dowm the road. Most of the stuff I found online said the same about my curremt mobo.

Claymoresama submitter 2 Builds 2 points 35 months ago

Thanks. It ended up costing $580 USD when I initially built it. It was for sure the best for the money at the time.

Awesome I look forward to seeing how those upgrades turn out.

I respect that you had the bravery to use older used parts. I hope it holds up well. If I may make a suggestion, when you have some more $ later in life I think you should throw a small SSD in your pc also some more ram if possible.
