Building a light gaming/university machine for $900
Jan 19, 2014, 2:40 AM
I'm building a computer that I'll be using for university (running CAD, MATLAB) and light gaming (Tomb Raider, etc).
This is the build that I've come up with:
CPU: Intel Core i5 4570
RAM: 8GB (2x4GB) G.Skill Ares/Sniper DDR3-1600 $109
HDD: Western Digital WD Blue 1TB $69
GPU: MSI 2G R9-270
Case: BitFenix Shinobi
PSU: FSP Raider 550W (80+ Silver) $85
What's the best Mobo that I can get for under $120 (that would suit my needs)?
Any advice on how to improve on my current build would be greatly appreciated!
