Need advice on budget build

Trazor1
 Share

Due to some health issues and well other issues i have been forced to try and build a PC cheap but i'd also like to play Star Citizen...reliably.

 

I have acquired a few pieces from people to help me along, but i am not sure how to proceed forward.

 

I have an Asus P9X79 WS motherboard,

two Nvidia N560GTX graphics cards (one works i was told one might not),

a nice case with a water cooled system built for the board i'm told,

and a power supply that has a gold rating but i do not know the name but i was told its able to handle whatever would be put in that case with that motherboard and graphics cards.

 

What i am here mainly asking is whats the best processor for that board for gaming and school (solid works will be the most intense software i believe) and whats the place for likely the best price.

and whats the best Ram to get and also again best price?

 

Any information i can get that will help in this endeavor will be greatly appreciated.

As far as my actual budget right at this moment its sadly zero. I am looking for and idea of the goal i have to set for myself or is this going to be completely unrealistic.

If there is any additional information i can offer on the parts i have ill do my best to answer.

 

thank you,

I'm new to Linus Tech Tips, but when i saw the first review on YouTube i was hooked. I am also a fan of Louis Rossmann.

To clear things up for others, the n650 is a MSI GTX 650.

Mobo is a LGA2011 X79 platform

 

for OP, could you possibly check if the PSU shows and labels on how much WATT it puts out?

CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 5600X Heatsink: Gelid Phantom Black GPU: Palit RTX 3060 Ti Dual RAM: Corsair DDR4 2x8GB 3000Mhz mobo: Asus X570-P case: Fractal Design Define C PSU: Superflower Leadex Gold 650W
