What country? Do you need a monitor? You should just build the PC, you'll get way more for your money, and it's not hard to do.

Currency? Doesn't hurt to ask :D

 

Also, what's your intended use?

editing, gaming, casual, school, coding, etc.

 

do you need to include the monitor and peripherals?

I don't know how to build one or have the time. I just need a computer (for gaming).

It takes like maybe an hour at most, even for your first time, hang on...Also windows 10 can be installed without a key, you just need a flash drive and a PC to use their Media Creation Tool

$939 for an R5 2600 + RX 580 after about 2 minutes of searching.

And this is the price for doing it yourself, just add a hard drive maybe, GPU performance is within like 10% or the RX 580

Could certainly get a little bit better motherboard still, like an MSI Tomahawk B450

The price on the i5 8400 + RX 580 PC isn't bad, though that thing is going to run hot, the PSU is likely low end, and the picture shows a single fan SFF RX 580 which is also likely to run hot.

Oh trust me, he could have a much faster, cooler, effecient, reliable system if he built it himself with an AMD build. Only so much you can do for a prebuilt though. They cut costs with anything that's not a cpu/gpu to make it look like a great deal =/

You can get a used 1070 Ti for like 300-320 off ebay.  The build I did fits that into the budget.

Not everyone wants to deal with used parts though, and if he's only gaming at 1080p a 1070ti is unnecessary.

A knife to open boxes and a screw driver, the quick build I posted above covers most everything

 

this one's a bit more detailed.


Did you need a monitor with the PC? and waht kinds of games were you going to play?

 

You could also start with a basic $400 PC that will run games just fine as well

I don't see why someone wouldn't more performance, though.  Used Pascal cards right now are quite the deal compared to new cards.  Sure, a 1070 Ti might be a bit overkill for 1080p at the moment.  But, if you're a budget person who doesn't upgrade a lot that card will probably last them awhile too.

Because by the time the like under $200 RX 570/580 needs to be replaced a card with newer features than the 1070ti will likely be at that old price range.

Just to put it out there, I'm selling a computer at the moment, I can give it to you for $700 +shipping, which will be about $800 total.

 

I might be able to go cheaper if you want.

Your motherboard will come with SATA cables, your PSU will come with all the necessary power cables.

Your case has the cables it needs for the ports and fans.

 

I would push for a CX550M and some form of SSD though.

^^^ Definitely. Also keep in mind you won't be able to OC that much without a much, much better cooler. My 8600K at 5GHz on 1.302v (IIRC, it may be pulling 1.312 tho), hits 81+C on an NH-D15S with two fans (It is stuffed vertically in an S340 Elite along with a 980 Ti, but I also have a good fan setup for the case), and was hitting 93C with a Cryorig H7. This is in synthetic tests though, under most gaming loads it doesn't get quite as hot, though still toasty.

Corsair CX550M is better. Plus you get an extra 50W and it's semi-modular.
