General price/ how much should I pay for pc parts

Vod
 Share

Hello
I'm going to build a new pc in the next month.

Current part I've found are I5 4670k for $100 used, H81M-VG4 R3.0 mobo for around $45 new and a Gtx 1050ti for around $120 used.

My budget is $400 so I have around $150 for things like the case, psu, ram and hdd (no I wont buy a ssd).

My qestions:

Are the prices for the parts I've picked out good?
How much should I pay for the psu?
Should I only get 8gb or ram?

Also I'll be doing a lot of gaming like playing R6S, Fortnite and Overwatch.

I already have Windows 10 key.

-There are cheaper used 1050 Ti's

-Not too sure about PSU prices

-At this budget, 8gb is probably your only option

How much for the 1050ti's is the the best price?

Well, you would have to do a little digging for that. Don't buy the first one you see. You can search on a few platforms like ebay or facebook marketplace. I went on ebay and I saw one selling for $115 on the first page, so there are likely even cheaper ones, just harder to find.

IMO you paid way too much for that CPU. You could have gotten an i3 for about the same price.

Motherboard is ok, but again, only a few more dollars would have net you a brand new 300 series H or B board.

Video card is ok, though I probably would have gone for a used 970, or a little more for a new RX 570.

 

You can get away with a low priced PSU, get something like a CXM.

Since you're getting used RAM, you should be able to get 16GB quite cheap. Probably around $60.

You should buy an SSD. They're cheap. There's no reason not to.

I seach for pc parts on ebay, when I was looking at Gtx 1050ti's, a lot of sellers said "no returns".
So should I be skeptical about that?

I wouldnt trust that. Buy from a good seller that accepts paypal and returns, and doesn't look too good to be true and has a good cooler. Even through the 1050 ti isn't too hard to cool. The cx(m) series are really cheap right now. But get the gray label one, not the green one (that one is crappy). And why a overclockable cpu with an h series mobo?

Most gtx 1050ti's I found, the sellers had "no returns".
I don't know any other "good cpu that goes with a cheap mobo.

I'm not planing on doing any overclocking.

If you have a suggestion for a cpu with the lga 1150 socket, that would be nice.

It is a good cpu, but with a z series mobo, you can overclock it with a good cooler. A great idea if you play cpu heavy games or if you're going to pair it with something heavier than a 1060 (or amd or earlier gen equivelent)

In the future, I'll be upgrading the gpu to probably the gtx 1060, and the cpu to the i7 4790k before I get a new mobo.

I dont know second hand market that good, but a 1150 z series mobo isnt that expensive, right? But that's more something for the future maybe. Also, take a look into 970, as it is about equivelent to a 1060

Edit:
And whats the usual price for an used one?

why won't you buy an ssd? If you have the extra money after buying everything else I would say you should go for the ssd.
