  1. I am making a point I seriously doubt hes next door to buy. There are people that can and do have decent systems in your area for decent prices.
  2. it really depends on what you are after and since you stated you wanted a workstation more than a gaming rig then you have more options than you can shake a stick at. Intel is not the only game in the park and AMD powered systems are just fine also. You can get an 8 core AMD FX3 with 8 to 16 gigs of memory for around 500 to 600 or less depending on what you get with it.. I build systems and resell them. I build make sure they work well and have basic software on them and run them for days before I list them. At 450 I have a brand new corsair Carbide case. 4 extra fans over the one red that came with the case. An AMD 8370 that runs 4.0 and turbos to 4.2 An after market enermax cooler. Nice Asus 990 FX professional Motherboard. 12 gig of corsair DDR3 1600 ram. A nice Adlink 240 SSD and a 1TB 7200 rpm hard drive for storage. Finally a EVGA 780 GTX video card.. (New case, Brand new hard drives) This system will do fine with nearly all the games. Maybe not on max settings for the newer ones but it will run the ones people want like fortnight and pub G. Will work just fine with data crunching. When your ready just buy a new video card like a 1060 6 gb later when you want to serious game.
  3. I'm more of the 1700 and up kind of person but I did build a 1600X in a define Mini Itx case with a Gigabyte B350 MB and used a 1700 spire on it. It worked out nice for a build and handled games and content well with the 1070 SC card
  4. I am still laughing I got the case as an open box for a nice price like 50 dollars off and the MB and processer are running RGB. I will prob just set it static blue later.
  5. https://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboBundleDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.3646766 here is a 1600 combo this one has a cooler and yes you can clock it.. NewEgg has some nice combo deals if you do some searching.... remember I do build for people and do this lots.
  6. Here you go... https://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboBundleDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.3705944
  7. Nothing wrong with picking up pieces and then building the system but only if you do it before the seller warranty is still good. A word of caution on the 1600X if your considering it that there is no cooler included. The 2600 would be the better bet since it has a cooler with it that is pretty good. As for the Intel.. Come on this guy is on a budget and where is he getting a cooler to cool that intel to get that kind of numbers?
  8. Here is the 1700 and the board on my wet bench before I transfered it into a nice Roswill Cullin case.
  9. I'm running a Ryzen 1700 and a Gigabyte Gaming B350 and its clockable and running nice for the price
  10. you would be better saving for the 2600X and a B350
  11. its really nice but the Factory lists are 99% useless in finding the RGB ram I have gone through inputting numbers for hours trying to find stuff. Lets take the Geil site and statements saying they are AMD Ryzen compatible but no lists have them listed nor is any sellers listing the proper codes that are supposed to work response from GEIL "According to the series number provided, it seems that the issue might be because what you’re installed in an Intel edition rather than the AMD edition ram. For AMD edition, the model number should start with GALWS."
  12. The issue is not the name I purchased 32 gb of Trident and it turned out to be the wrong stuff. I need working part numbers and such. Making 450 or 250 dollar goof's is hard on my budget The web site gives part numbers that do not work 99% of the time when I search for memory
  13. Hi, I have a Ryzen 1700X and a Gigabyte Arous 370 K7 MB I am pulling my hair out trying to find RGB memory that will work with it and run 3200 speed. I tried their site and its a mess. Does anyone know what works and what brands>
  14. With your budget the Used market is your best spot. Normally you can find Whole combo's for sale from people that upgraded. I've picked up some nice deals like an AMD 8350 with a 990 motherboard for around 150.00. I have even picked up the 8370 for that price. Some will come with the memory also. You can still game and stream fine with it. Here is an example of what I have gotten 150 dollars 8350 FX processer. MSI 990 gaming motherboard. W/8gig ram 16 gig of 1600 ram 50-100 dollars. I posted a Craigs list score pix
