If you want it powerful, don't go with the FX line of processors.

 

Also, broken link.

How much money have you got to spend on your pc? Do you need peripherals monitor etc included in that budget? What will you be doing with it?

 

Ps your pc part picker link is broken

Hi guys

 

I'm planning on building a really powerful, small factor portable PC with the FX 8350

 

http://au.pcpartpicker.com/p/4bqbzy 

 

 

thoughts? suggestions? 

 

I would love a suggestion for a small and cheap PC case 

If you're going for powerful and small, FX is not the way to go.  Get something like an i5 that runs cooler and faster.

Lesson nr. 1 of LTT, always check if there is a space at the end of the link.

I apologize for the way I am. If my post seemed rude, that was not my intention. Just my ineptness in forming a nice coherent message.

Do you have any of the components already?

Is there any reason you're going for the FX 8350 over something like and Intel Core i5 4460 CPU?

limited to a relatively small budget, and seeing as this will be my portable PC to use away from my main rig, I want it to be an AMD

Don't go AMD unless you want crap performance.

to be fair, AMD doesn't have crap performance, its just sub-par to intel and nvidia (for now, waiting on zen processors and r9 390 to see how they perform against 980(ti..?) and current cpu's)

AMD's a good choice when limited by a extremely low budget (for a PC)

however, in this case, with about $250 for a cpu it would be better to go with an i5. 

I wouldn't recommend a 750 ti for a graphics card, you could go for either R9 280, 285, or GTX 960 with that kind of budget. 

Those cards are pretty tied in performance, but the 960 has dx12 support, so it might be a better option.

Sandisk SSD, 2TB HDD - just a few small things...

The FX8350 retails at around $200, whilst the cheapest I5 is around $240.

Yep when your not trying to build a pc for the price of a console then Intel is the way to go.

DDR2 is a little out of fashion these days :P

 

I'll just be buying the cheapest ram that is compatible

Take it from me, DO NOT go mATX and FX. I cant to jack shit to my 6300, and I regret that decision everyday.

Are you talking about overclocking? I don't intend to over clock

any thoughts on the Cpu + motherboard?

strongly agree with this statement ^^^

Hi guys

 

I'm planning on building a really powerful, small factor portable PC with the FX 8350 ETC ETC (SNIP)

 

 

Also, if you're goin with a small form factor, id go with an i5. The thing is, i have an 8350, and the performance is not crap all, but first of all you WILL ABSOLUTELY NEED an aftermarket cooler, even at stock clocks, to keep it at an acceptable temp, so you'll still be spending the same money as a [locked] i5.

 

the 8350 draws a crapton of power, which is a cost factor, and also puts the PSU under stress b/c of this. Also, even with an aftermarket cooler, it will be dropping a ton of heat into your case, which will affect other components' performance, particularly in a small case.

As far as the RAM and case go, Ares G.Skill 2x4GB kits are pretty cheap and reliable ram kits, and as a case i'd reccomend a BitFenix Prodigy, its not cheap but the same price as the one you have in the list, has space for bigger components for future upgrades, nice handles to carry it around, and is probably the case of choice for LAN parties and whatnot. its not quite as small as the Urban SD-1, but its a good size/performance (possibility) ratio 

 

PS if you do buy an AMD cpu, DO NOT buy ASRock mobos

i5+h81 motherboard costs less than 8350+cheapest matx motherboard.

Get an i5.


G3258 @ 4.5 | 8GB Team Vulcan RAM | 128GB Kingston V300 SSD (I didn't know what I was doing when I bought it) | MSI H81I Motherboard | Corsair H55 with Noctua NF-P12 | EVGA SSC GTX 960 4GB | OCZ 550W Fully Modular PSU with Noctua NF-A14 | Cooler Master Elite 130 (Soon to be something cool)

not to be repetitive, but considering the 8350 WILL require aftermarket cooling...yea, get an i5

Then get an i3.  The FX series is no longer worth buying.
