Budget cpu

What is the cheapest cpu for a gtx 1050 that won't bottleneck it much?

 

Right now i think it's the pentium G4560 at $113 AUD

well with no specific task parameter set the cheapest cpu that won't bottleneck a 1050 is a freebee celeron from around 10 years ago or newer.

If you have a task in mind I'd suggest something different

I mean, a mildly overclocked Q6600 wouldn't hold a GTX 1050 back by much, and those are like $9.

I enjoy buying junk and sinking more money than it's worth into it to make it less junk.

if you’re fine with buying a new mobo, you could always get a 2200g or 2400g (or 2600)

 

im taking about ryzen btw, not sure if you knew or not

i thought about it but i want the building experience and doesn't look like it came out of a library, also lots of upgradeable path.

Personally I wouldn't buy a dual core anything in 2019.

 

Even a 4/4 is cutting it close.

Jayz and Paul's both frequently recommend the Ryzen 3 2200G for low budget builds. Currently $87.99 USD on pcpartpicker. 

That may require a new MOBO (and even new RAM if you're not currently on DDR4). If you're not planning to overclock, the MOBOs can run as low as $50ish.

I've seen it paired with similar GPU's without issue.

How do you find cheap motherboards?

on pcpartpicker the cheapest one i can find is 100$

the cheaper ones have a *slight* compatibility issue.

The chipset you'd want for 2nd Gen Ryzen is the B450 series (Or X470 if you run crossfire). If you don't mind mATX factor, they drop about 15 bucks on almost every model. That said, if you're overclocking, a lot of the low end models won't support it well. Then your lowest cost is in the $75ish range currently. (Which is on a nice low, since a 3rd gen Ryzen is about to drop. It may continue to go down, who knows.)

I've been posting this around when suggesting. So here's some food for thought:

 

PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant
Type Item Price
CPU AMD - Ryzen 3 2200G 3.5 GHz Quad-Core Processor $87.99 @ Walmart
Motherboard ASRock - B450M-HDV R4.0 Micro ATX AM4 Motherboard $59.99 @ Newegg
Memory G.Skill - Aegis 8 GB (1 x 8 GB) DDR4-3000 Memory $39.99 @ Newegg
  Prices include shipping, taxes, rebates, and discounts  
  Total $187.97
  Generated by PCPartPicker 2019-03-15 10:05 EDT-0400  

 

Sub out the RAM for 16gb though is my sugestion. That was for a dude looking for a pretty barebones setup/cost.

Ah, I see.. I always forget that a large portion of this forum seem to be outside of North America so I am over here just being an asshole in my recommendations that don't necessarily even apply lol.

 

That said if it's a fairly even price increase across the board, I imagine this will still be an equally budget friendly combo.

So it could bring 'similar' performance as a 1050?

Depends on the game.

 

Dual cores are pretty rough these days. Hell, quad cores can sometimes barely manage without smt.

it is considered 'budget friendly' but still a lot more expensive than that price

thx
