    its for Minecraft maybe ghosts (low settings ?

    I found a total 500 dollar build that plays bf4 etc

    Yeah sure : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5n5dolXyyg0 specs are in the description of the video (note i don't need an OS , screen,mouse,keyboard,)(just the pc)
  5. From your computer you could use only the DVD writer :D. And the Hard Disk if you dont want to change. So i dont know anything. Please tell us will you overclock what do you prefer (intel, amd) and etc.

    thats fine euhm i never overclocked before nether have i build a pc but a friend will help me out as i can probably do it myself. if its changes allot i will overclock

    and as seen from my budget i think amd is the way to go but if you could make a build with intel thats fine with me :)
  7. Sorry its not intel, but amd kind of owns the lower end market. this is what I came up with.
    fx-6300
    650ti 2gb
    2x4gb ram at 1600
    Asus M5A97 R2.0
    CX 430M
    Antec one case
    Total $491.96

    I know Thanks! I'l look into it
  9. Best of luck, I only used compatible and reliable parts. If you are ok with skimping on a reliable and quality power supply or motherboard (Which I would not recommend at all). You could save a few dollars.

    A good switch might be the non modular CX 430, but its just a $5 difference
  10. Thats really hard when you want Intel CPU for low budget i could give you Intel Core i5 4430 and G.Skill 8GB Ram, XFX Radeon R9 270X and only with this parts the build is $480.99 if you can do it for 600$ i could do it better?

    No the pricing is good as i live in Belgium it becomes 350euro so thats not that much

    If i would, would that build be ALLOT better than the build from Typolo ?

    cause i looked his build up on youtube and i am seeing Some VERY nice footage.

    Just to clarify. the budget is $500 tops, so about 360 euro. not 500 euro which is about $690.

    And I don't think you can get much better unless you find awesome deals from a more local retailer or open box (used) parts.

    Thats what i made. Also i thing the motherboard that Typolo gave wont support FX 6300. This motherboard is a littlebit overpriced but that is the best solution for 560$ as i thing.

    The 8-pin supplemental power should provide ample support for the 6300. I was going to use a 990 chipset but couldn't find a good one without exceeding the $500 limit

    Is that video card/build better ?

    http://pcpartpicker.com/parts/partlist/


    The build doesnt cost $552.13 because the processor is not added in the price! Carry on! It costs about 680$! Its out of stock and for that they dont count it! And yes it will fit. You have to click on the case and compare the motherboard and to see is the case fitting it. The motherboard is ATX so it fits:)

    I like 7870 more,but that videcard can run in medium/smoothly high r9 270 is the new era card ! Check out the reviews, compare them in gpuboss and etc. R9 270 is officially better :)

    No i am saying, they dont count your processor when the price is N/A they are not adding it into the final price. Delete everything other and leave only the amd fx processor alone and you will see :)

    I have no clue what Yoann Teodosieff is talking about on the price, if in any way its wrong is if you cant get the discounts or mail in rebate.

    You can just search for the products and add them in your amazon cart:)
  36. $700 is magical!

    Sorry its not amazon, i just find putting a rig together there is a pain, but they will have similar price on the same parts.
    http://pcpartpicker.com/p/2rPKB
    Total $708
    The key to this is a gtx 770 for $330-350
    Then the linked cpu is the 4570 but I would try to get an extra $40 for the 4670k if at all possible.
    The motherboard was chosen because it is a Z87 board from a great manufacturer, but is cheap to allow a better cpu and gpu.
    The other parts are to meet budget while supporting the rest of the build. The stock cooler and 4gb of ram will be sufficient. Down the road you can add a fancy cooler and second stick of ram as cheap upgrades.

    Im not getting the case from my dad, he's gonna buy it for me but thats included in the 700$ price
  38. Is it okay if i start another thread where i say a budget from 700$ cause then more people will see it and i like to see differences between peoples builds, but this one is gonna stay for sure it has great build in it which i'l maybe use.
