Hello, I'm a 16 year old ICT engineering student from Finland and quite active on this forum :D I have good knowledge of PC's and have built a couple ones for my friends in will build a coupe in the next few months too. So I will have summerjob in the next month where I will get approximately 750€ and my total budget would be around 850€. The rig would be used for:
Gaming, mild streaming and mild editing.
I'm planning to play on 1080p and because i'm coming from an old laptop, anything above 30FPS with higer than low settings will be a blessing for me :D
I don't need an OS or mouse or a headset, but i don't have a monitor or keyboard yet.
I would like to OC but the parts for the new PC at least will not allow it :/
Here are my options:
CPU: i5-4460 180€
MoBo: MSI Z97 PC MATE 90€
RAM: Kingston HyperX Beast 2400 MHz RAM 2x4 GB stics (cheaper than 1600 MHz kits >_>) 75€
GPU: XFX R9 270 DD 170€
HDD: 1 Tb WD Blue 60€
Case: Bitfenix comrade 40€
PSU: XFX 450W core edition 80+ bronze 50€
Monitor AOC i2470SWQ AH-IPS 23.8" 6ms response time monitor.
And some cheap keyboard to get started...
This would be about 830€ from the place i'm ordering the parts from.
Now, i also came across this second hand PC:
Cooler: Thermalright Macho Rev.A
MoBo: Biostar TZ77A
RAM: 2xElixir 4GB DDR3 1600MHz
GPU: Gigabyte HD 7950 3GB GDDR5
HDD: Seagate Barracuda 1TB
Some asus DVD writer
Case: Rosewill Blackhawk
PSU: Superflower golden green 80+ gold 550W
Peripherals that are included:
Monitor: Dell U2412M (250€ new)
Keyboard: Tt eSPORT MEKA
Mouse: MadCatz R.A.T 5 ( about 100€ new)
And a madcatz mousepad
Total cost would be 600€ including all the peripherals.
Now this deal looks too good to be real for me. The system is 2 years old, and only warranties left would be straight from manufacturer since the shop where he bought it from was shut down year ago.
So wich one should i get?
I have a few questions now. Is the motherboard capable of OC? i've never seen biostar motherboards in finland and only once seen any1 recommending it.
Also, what if something breaks in normal use if I buy the secondhand PC?
I'm just so confused ATM ;_;
Ty for any responses.
