New PC Rebuild Parts List

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Decided to take on the project of Scrapyard Wars (eBay edition) where I try to get the best used parts possible for under $500 USD. I am only 14 so my budget is very limited.

 

Here are the parts I'm looking at:

i5 2500k: ~$120

Any Z68 Motherboard: ~$60

R9 290(possibly x): ~$220

NZXT S340 Case: $69 (buying new)

EVGA 500W PSU: $40 (buying new)

Total: $509

 

All the prices are only approximations, prices on eBay are always changing.

 

Already Own:

8 GB Generic Samsung DDR3

Samsung 840 EVO 120 GB (boot drive)

Intel 520 Series 120 GB SSD (frequently played steam games)

250 GB Generic WD Drive (mass storage/more games)

 

Any opinions/suggestions?

EVGA G2, B2, P2 or GS are good

EVGA B1, G1 and NEX are bad

EVGA W1 are horrible.

So what is a good budget 500ish Watt PSU? If I had put a CX500 I would have been yelled at to get a EVGA PSU, and I get an EVGA and I'm told I shouldn't get that either... I don't want to spend more than $50 on a PSU as this is only a $500 PC build.

XFX TS 550W - usually 50$ or less. It's a rebrand of the SeaSonic S12G or S12II - can't remember exactly.
