Is this a good budget build for 3D modeling/Gaming?

CPU: Intel Pentium G860

GPU: Sapphire Radeon 7850 1GB

Hard drive: Seagate Momentus 5400.6 500GB SATA II

RAM: 4GB Corsair Vengeance DDR3 1600 MHz CL9

Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-B75M-D3H, Intel B75, mATX

Power: Antec BasiQ VP550

--------Total cost of parts=520 euro-------


I'm on a budget of 550 euro including getting it built/ delivery.

I need this computer for college (3D modeling/animation) and play modern games would be a plus.

just want to know if i am getting the best power for my money, please let me know if any parts need changing for around the same price.

Thanks

  1. Intel Pentium G860 is 32 nm and your 1600 mhz ram is only supported on 22nm

    Hey thanks for the heads up, im new to pc building

    would a 4GB Corsair XMS3 DDR3-1333 CL9 do alright?
  3. not sure on the g860 but should work nice. are you sure you got no other alternatives?
  4. 4GB Corsair XMS3 DDR3-1333 CL9 would be good but you might want to consider having 8gb of ram, better with more recent Pc's.

    I am concerned about the G860 performance with the Radeon 7850.

    an upgrade processor would step into i3, i5 territory and they cost alot more.
    it seems that the G860 out performs similarly priced AMD cores also.
  6. The G860 is quite weak for 3D modeling ...
