I have been posting some prospective builds. And i have gotten some great builds *cough* *cough* tech noob *cough* *cough* now i kindly ask for some more assistance. This is the lowest build i have come up with so far:
AMD FX-6300 3.5GHz 6-Core Processor
MSI 970A-G43 ATX AM3+ Motherboard
Crucial Ballistix Sport 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory
A-Data Premier Pro SP900 128GB 2.5" Solid State Disk
MSI Radeon HD 7850 2GB Video Card
Rosewill FB-03 ATX Mid Tower Case
Topower 500W 80+ Bronze Certified ATX Power Supply
This is around $530 which would be a sweet spot for me. If anyone has any suggestions please advise how i can improve this build without adding much price. &500-550 price range. Thank you in advance to anyone who assists!
What is the computer going to be used for?
After discount codes and MIR, it is actually less than $500. You should definitely consider changing the power supply, though.
Here is a 760K build:
The CPU is actually a great option for gaming. It won't bottleneck the 7850 one bit. I have personally seen a setup like this run games like BF4 without any problems.
i am going to be gaming mostly.
I'm backing berserker on this one. Great picks
I'm thinking of getting a better motherboard if you're going to overclock and also a good heatsink for the CPU if you're going to play CPU heavy games since the stock cooler is "ok" for normal use.
I would suggest a motherboard with at least some cooling. The minimum I would go with would be the G-46 version of your mobo.
However, if you do ever want to upgrade to an 8-core CPU, I would suggest getting a motherboard with a 990fx chipset, but that'll take you out of your budget by a nice fifty dollars or so.
I also went with a power supply that's plenty for your build, but from a better brand. I have no idea what brand Topower is, and neither where the PSU design came from.
