Budget PC Build #1

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Ok, so I have dared to enter the realm of budget pc builds. This is my first budget list, and from the price point, it seems good. here is the link. So, for those of you who don't trust amazon, here is the parts list: 

- Intel Pentium G3258

- Zalman T5 Micro ATX case

- ASRock ATX DDR3 1600 LGA 1150 B85M-DGS Motherboard

- 16GB Kingston Tech ValueRAM (2x 8GB) @ 1333Mhz 

- EVGA 500 watt 80+ Bronze non-modular PSU

 

All of that adds up to about $270 US Dollars ($360 Canadian, 255 Euros, 18 Pounds) without shipping, since I have prime. 

 

NOTE: I currently have an Nvidia GeForce GTX 750 Ti FTW That I will stick in there. Also, I will have it running Ubuntu, so no cost for windows AND a lot of steam games are supported!

So, if you have any recommendations, please let me know.

That's pretty much a perfect budget build, with the ability to take on a higher end CPU down the road like a i5 or i7 without any issues. gg :D

16GB RAM might be a bit much but do whatever you want. Nice build.

8gb of ram is fine for gaming, and with the money saved from less ram get an i3 or if you can a cheap i5

Please get an Athlon 860K or an i3. Like, please, if you're gonna play modern games.

Well, I just looked, and it would help if I had a hard drive... I'm assuming a WD Green woulld be good.

Go for a WD Blue, they're much faster. I recommend the WD 1TB Blue.

My current i3 530 @ 2.93Ghz with 6GB ddr3 ram is fine for gaming, and if I understand the pentium's specs, the only bad things are: 1MB less cache, and no hyperthreading. Other than that, it will be better.

Keep your current i3 then.
