That's the main part, add a case to your liking and your done. $400...

Hello, so my brother has a very old crappy laptop and he needs a upgrade. For Christmas I plan on spending around $400 to build him a capable gaming PC. I need some suggestions on parts to use or maybe builds that some of you have built.

I would like at least a GTX 1050, if you have any ideas it would be greatly appreciated!

I would look for something used. You can likely find a system with an overclockable i5 and a GTX 970. That will beat out pretty much anything else at that price point. Or you could just go with the above build and throw in a used 970, since it'll stomp on a 1050 Ti, and they go for around $100-120.

My Build, v2.1 --- CPU: i7-8700K @ 5.2GHz/1.288v || MoBo: Asus ROG STRIX Z390-E Gaming || RAM: 4x4GB G.SKILL Ripjaws 4 2666 14-14-14-33 || Cooler: Custom Loop || GPU: EVGA GTX 1080 Ti SC Black, on water || PSU: EVGA G2 850W || Case: Corsair 450D || SSD: 850 Evo 250GB, Intel 660p 2TB || Storage: WD Blue 2TB || G502 & Glorious PCGR Fully Custom 80% Keyboard || MX34VQ, PG278Q, PB278Q

Audio --- Headphones: Massdrop x Sennheiser HD 6XX || Amp: Schiit Audio Magni 3 || DAC: Schiit Audio Modi 3 || Mic: Blue Yeti

 

[Under Construction]

 

My Truck --- 2002 F-350 7.3 Powerstroke || 6-speed

My Car --- 2006 Mustang GT || 5-speed || BBK LTs, O/R X, MBRP Cat-back || BBK Lowering Springs, LCAs || 2007 GT500 wheels w/ 245s/285s

 

The Experiment --- CPU: i5-3570K @ 4.0 GHz || MoBo: Asus P8Z77-V LK || RAM: 16GB Corsair 1600 4x4 || Cooler: CM Hyper 212 Evo || GPUs: Asus GTX 750 Ti, || PSU: Corsair TX750M Gold || Case: Thermaltake Core G21 TG || SSD: 840 Pro 128GB || HDD: Seagate Barracuda 2TB

 

R.I.P. Asus X99-A motherboard, April 2016 - October 2018, may you rest in peace. 5820K, if I ever buy you a new board, it'll be a good one.

I'm sorry forgot a HDD, but you can use the old pc hdd. The 120 is quite small, you can have a 256gb for another $10-20.

For used parts i suggest finding a Xeon 1230 than i5, they are cheaper and comparable with i7.

A 970 would definately crush 1050ti, but can you deal with used parts?
