Hello, i am fairly new to building pcs and i am planning building a low budged gaming pc for about 400$.I am not looking for anything too strong just something that can run games such as League of Legends at a stable fps.

Case : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Memory(HDD): http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Motherboard : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

PSU : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Ram Memory : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Processor : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Fan : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Video Card : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

What do you guys think ? Is this a good build for such a low budged ? Will all the parts be compatible with each other ?

Replace your processor, graphics card and motherboard with this combo:

It will cost just a little bit more but will utterly crush your current setup without even lifting a finger. There's even USB 3 on the motherboard :D

Everything else follows generic standards. They HAVE to work together. The only point of concern would be the power supply because raidmax is not exactly known for making high quality power supplies. Keep in mind that your investment into a power supply is like investing in insurance. You pay more but you feel at ease that the power supply won't explode and fry your 400 dollars worth of stuff.

If you aren't satisfied with the dual core, you could get an AMD Phenom II 965 BE and get a Radeon HD 7750 instead. You'd be sacrificing a lot of GPU power, though.

That adds up to over $500 without the mail in rebates. Rebates are a pain.

It also provides substantially better performance than the APU... I have never had any issues with rebate but to each their own.

The APU is equivalent to the 6670:

If someone had said yes your build was ok first would you have picked that as best answer ? My point is the fastest answer is not always the best, the best answer takes a little thought and research. You will be back soon when you upgrade that build from 720p mid range graphics.

I always have value in mind when I build systems :)  The only thing I would say about your build is that I would opt for the an A75 board over an A55 board just because of the native 6Gb/s Sata III and USB 3.0 support.

.


The case only had usb 2.0 front and no ssd so sata II would suffice . I started with the gigabyte ud3 and thermaltake v4 for the you know what crossfire build(slickdeals) but it took a dive on me last tuesday and this was the only other board and case that i had handy. I was not about to stop and wait for rma or fedex and switched gears and moved on.
Nothing earth shattering numbers wise but it runs 4 cores @ 4ghz very solid and 4.2 with a few anomalies. I did get 2 cores to run at @ 4.6 but without big voltage jumps 1.54+ my sample was uninspiring. Temps were ok 54c in prime but everything else under 40c. Stock cooler, send me a pm if you want any info
