First Time Building A Rig

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey guys, Im planning on building up from my current PC, so I got this drafted out. So far I've purchased the PSU and the GPU. My budget is $500 and since I'm in Malaysia, converted, it becomes MYR2000. I have no plans to overclock. I am running on Windows 10 with a single display. I can't really decide on which MOBO and processor to go with.

Thanks for the tip. Would the Samsung 850 Evo Series be a good choice?

850 would be a GREAT choice, i just didn't know if it fit the budget!

Evertying else looks great, except that power supply looks shifty as fuck

The difference in price is about MYR 91. But is it true that the Kingston SSDs are more problem prone?

Yes they switched out the NAND or something from the review units to make it seem like they are faster than the ones produced

As for the CPU, is there any difference in between the Intel 4th Gen and the 6th Gen other than the TDP and architecture?
