$500 gaming build?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

here is my list.. 

 

i chose the 2200g because it is a cheap but plwerful processor

 

the RAM because it is 2x8 and also pretty decently priced

 

the SSD to boot my OS

 

1tb HDD because i already have it

 

2tb HDD for extra storage for recordings and my games (games i make and such)

 

gtx 960 cause its good as far as i have seen and it is as little as $70 used

 

case cause it looks cool

 

power supply has some good ratings, and nothing will be OC, so it should be good for now

 

 

 

primary uses:

 

recording CSGO

playing rust, r6, and pubg

playing / recording indie games on itch.io

editing recorded videos

game development

Get a used HP Z worksation with at least 4 cores/8 threads (or more) from your local second hand market, and throw in a used GTX 970 (or the best card you can find). 

 

And don't forget to add a SSD!

Yes. Especially if you find a PC with 8 cores/16 threads.

Not sure a 2200G makes a whole lot of sense when you are going to add a GPU anyway. Also if you are going for an AMD system I would invest a bit more into faster memory, since Ryzen really likes fast RAM.

since it is cheap and still good.. i decided i will use it just for the CPU, and use the GTX for my GPU

That's not the greatest deal tbh. Keep looking and you'll find a better deal. I once got a system with 8 cores/16 threads, a 660 Ti, and 32GB of RAM for $200 CAD.
