550$ Build

Hello everyone, I am planning to build a mid range pc for gaming and maybe a little bit of video edditing, It has to be portable because my parents live in seperate houses, and I have a copy of windows so that would not need to be included in the price. Anyways if you can put in your opinion and recommendations that would be great! Here  are the current specs I have:

The one you have will work fine but this build is overclockable and is also has a little more power on the gpu.

Please keep these kinds of posts in the respective forums. Build A PC is more than useful. Inbox.exe is for questions usually to the Tek Syndicate team, but in this case there is a respective forum.

I'd move it over but my hardware mod powers don't extend that far.


and one of the reasons I don't like to use PC part picker is because it mainly shows you the highlighted price AFTER the mail in rebate, that usually takes +8weeks to do, if at all and voids your warranty

you have to pay everything up front
