Help first build ever

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

This is my first ever build and while I have these following parts: 

Ballistic sport 4 GB DDR 3 form factor at UDIMM

Radeon XFX graphics card R7-260X-CNF4

AMD FD8320FRHKBOX FX-8320 FX-Series 8-Core Black Edition Processor

I still need the follow: a case, one more stick of ram, a motherboard, some form of cooling, and a power supply. 
While I have the case, ram, and motherboard on amazonFAB1B49D-F18D-413F-9962-D6894AB2BFB2.thumb.png.8574805385004e7c24c80a6826cd5183.pngI would still like help making sure they fit the parts I already have. And I have no idea where to start for the power supply. 
Thanks for the help and sorry for the bad grammar and spelling.

Do u already have these parts or r u planning to upgrade them??

Well, am3+ is an ancient platform ND fx 8xxx series chips run hot.

 

Instead I'd suggest u to buy a cheapo optiplex with a 3rd/4th gen i5/i7 ND pop in a GPU. I'll be a much better investment.

Are you building this new? The fx cpus are seriously out to date; you can much faster cpus for cheaper these days.

 

What's your total budget? I can make a list for you.

Buy whatever product is best for you, not what product is "best" for the market.

 

I seem to like any products who have the same software and hardware maker, as long as it's not Apple. Weird. I like the Surface Book and the Pixel phones, but most definitely don't want an iPhone (I'm not saying they're bad, though).

 

Interested in computer architecture? Still in middle or high school? P.M. me!

 

I love computer hardware and feel free to ask me anything about that (or phones). I especially like SSDs. But please do not ask me anything about Networking, programming, command line stuff, or any relatively hard software stuff. I know next to nothing about that.

@DocSwag The parts that I already have where given to me by a cousin from his old build that’s how I have them. As far as by budget I’m not too sure because I’m 15 and trying to save for a car. Any list would be great so I could get an idea of prices and parts. This hole build might have to wait till I turn 16 and get a good paying job.

I'd suggest u to sell ur processor ND gpu.

And purchase a Dell optiplex with an i7 3rd/4th gen fr about $220-250 and pop in that extra stick of ram that u hv in it.

Purchase a new/used GPU like a gtx 1050ti/960/770/780 fr cheap ND pop it in. ND u'll hv a decent gaming system.

Happen to have any mom and pop pc shops around? They'll usually lower prices even lower and throw in a power supply if they see how you're so young.

 

I agree with Shroud, as those components are really out-dated and probably won't play many of the games you want to play. 

Time to do the good old, mowing lawns and doing chores for some money. 

 

The PC will be well worth the effort :D

I see. If that's the case, I'd recommend you sell the stuff you're getting and then either look at the used market or buy an APU based build such as this.

If you're not buying yet though you should hold off. New stuff might come out or maybe during black Friday there could be some good deals.

Haha that’s my job right now is mowing lawns. 15 dollars a lawn and an average of 3 lawns a week, it’s good money for my age but not for regularly buying expensive things like this. 😄

Well I tell you what, it will all be worth it. 

 

I love the fact that you are working very hard. I remember being 15 and doing the same thing just to take my girlfriend out to a movie or to a theme park. 

 

Keep at it. 

Give us a budget you feel comfortable at and some people here can build a PC on pcpartpicker's website for you. 

Don't forget to include your max limit WITH taxes.

I can care less about the case it was just a  relatively cheap case within ATX form factor on Amazon. Are the parts you just posted upgradable with all the latest and greatest stuff to if I get new parts I won’t have to buy a hole lot again. What is a apu build? And all that for under 300, yeah that’s in my price range that’s pretty awesome. Thanks

The motherboard should support new CPUs from AMD until 2020 ish. If you want something a little newer this is the newer version of that board that's $10 more

APU is AMD's term for a CPU with integrated graphics. So the GPU is integrated onto the CPU so that you don't need to buy another one. I believe the GPU on the 2200G should be a bit faster than the 260x so you could just sell the GPU

@DocSwag I’ve done some thinking and I will do like you said and go with amd but will most likely save a little more and get a ryzen 3 and motherboard so later down the line I can upgrade to a ryzen 5 or 7. And I’m not really gonna spend my money now and get a cheap rig that can’t grow with out a lot more money. Thanks for your guys help you’ve been awesome...... how do you close a form, or dose it just sit like this forever

GL :). BTW if you're willing to you could consider looking into the used market. IDK if that's something you want to do though.
