Budget Build?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

https://pcpartpicker.com/list/y8zkQZ

 

Would this be a decent budget build, And any and all suggestions and other build list are accepted as candidates.

 

Few Requirements:

 

1) It must be able to run games. E.G : Fortnite, Subnautica, Demanding Roblox games (Lol) And more games like that.

 

2) Budget is around 300 to 400 bucks. Like I said, Its a budget build.

 

3) Just have fun with it. Try some different builds.

 

Thanks for you support with this and I hope to see some nice builds.


Current Rig:

Crappy Laptop. I have a CPU meant for a tablet inside it.

Grab a used GTX 970 for $90-100, and you're set.

This is a little more budget friendly. @Geography I like your idea. Leaves room for him to upgrade to a GPU when he can afford one. @ThatDoggo You're gonna have to hold out on GPU in order to take advantage of the gaming side of this build. The onboard graphics won't get the job done. I suggest shopping around locally as well for any used hardware and shout out on LTT forums to see if the deal is worth it.

Can't the APU alone run Fortnite though? I've seen some benchmarks and it looks like it can no problem with lower settings. OP could always upgrade to a better GPU as well in the future if he wants to run more demanding games.

Thats Why I left the video card out and went with the B350 mobo. Just a bios update and The APU on Ryzen isn't bad, but not really the FPS he is going to want. leaves him a little more wiggle room for a 1050. I have used that card and surprisingly does really well. Especially paired with the 2200G. In fact, it has similar performance to your 280.

Oops, didn't notice that I added such a crappy video card. In fact, the 2200G might beat the GT 710 in some games lol.

Here's a $320ish keep in mind taxes will also come into play. You can add a pretty solid GPU in the future like a RX 560, and a standard HDD for mass storage.

This build is great. B450 Mobo and more storage. Also a cooler case.

Vega 8 outperforms the GT 710 in pretty much every way tbh

That's what I thought. I didn't see the purpose of adding that 40 dollars when he/she could save up for a midrange GPU and get 1080p 60fps easily.

Yeah there's not much point, it wouldn't do much for performance. I think even Vega 3 works better.

if you really still want a GPU, go get a used rx 560.
