Hey ppl i have decided that i will for sure build up a PC,

my budget is around 300 us dollars and I wish to build to build this system with AMD'S 7870k but i was thinking to get an intel cpu so as ill have an option of future upgradibility as, if ill have to buy an intel chipset motherboard if i purchase an intel cpu so ill have option to upgrade to processors with the same socket!

Is it a good thing to consider or should i go with amd cpu build, though FM2+ doesnt appear to get any processor any time in the future!

Please help!

Here you go, swap the SSD with a 1TB WD blue/seagate barrcuda if you need more than 120GB from the start.

(Assuming you don't need a OS/peripherals/monitor).

I don't think 300 dollars will cut for a build anywhere in the middle east, save up at least 400 dollars and try again later.

@Castdeath97 Thanks a lot! but the 6100 is really out of my league right now! And plus on top of it i dont think ill be able to save up for a GPU so please help!

Then save up, there is no way you can have a GPU at this price bracket in the middle east.

Maybe a G440 with integrated graphics is your best bet at this price point, but even it may not fit into your tiny budget.

@Castdeath97 No, actually i am got in contact with a store where these guys sell seconfd stuff so they kinda agreed on giving me things on cheap!

Still, if a used i3 is too expensive from them its either that you need to look elsewhere or save up.

I don't i3 6100 can be found used lel

I feel like you could get more for your buck by switching your build to AMD. The only real advantage your build has over an AMD budget build is DDR4.

 

AMD Athlon X4 860K 3.7GHz Quad-Core Processor is like 70 bucks or so.

@Castdeath97  Yeah i guess you are right ! actually there is only around $30 difference but i wish to get a good PSU ! Thanks a lot though!

The CX would be fine for basic builds like this. Also can you find a used i3 4130-4170? Maybe even a used i5 2500?

It's a bit faster in graphics, but slower in processing.
