budget workstation (not a problem, just bored)

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

i got bored and decided to try and build the best workstation under $1,000 USD (PCPartPicker pricelist)

 

 

 

if you are also bored feel free to tell me what you would change, lets see how good of a workstation we can get out of $1,000 :)

I feel like the used market would really shine here.

 

You should be able to have a better card than an RX 560 in a workstation.

i agree, but im not actually planning on buying or building a workstation, and the challenge was to use just PCPartPicker prices, but thank you :)

Probably would've been a good idea to list that in the OP ;)

 

I'm aware you're not planning to buy, but Intel X58 or X79 were the first things that came to mind when I read "budget workstation".

i’d do 2x8gb and use the saved money on a better gpu, maybe rx 580
