Will This Build Work?

Hey guys so, I have little money but want a decent PC. I have storage already from an older pc (1 TB). But I want to know if this build will work. Before I list them, please note I am only 14, so don't recommend any other components if mine aren't the best. I can't have a job because I'm 13 meaning I don't have much money. Anyways, here they are.

Case: http://bit.ly/1qDHacg

MOBO: http://bit.ly/1vBd25E

CPU: http://bit.ly/1tyQ4vE

GPU: http://bit.ly/1vBd9xW

RAM: http://bit.ly/1qa2HMe

  1. The only thing you are missing is the PSU to power the build something like a 430W will do. Also in my opinion this case is much better and the build quality too - http://www.ncixus.com/products/?usaffiliateid=1000031504&sku=92219&vpn=BFC-COM-100-KKXS1-RP&manufacture=BitFenix&promoid=1046. I dont know why you are going for an intel build with a dual core cpu and expensive motherboard if you can get an amd build for much cheaper that will perform better. Use a website called PC PART PICKER to find the cheapest prices and parts. Lastly i suggest you get a next gen console any game you want to play including minecraft will be on it and its cheaper than building a pc i normally dont recommend it but in this case if you want to build a pc to play games on then its not going to run anything even minecraft on the other hand the xbox one will run all games at 60-30 fps on high settings. If you had like 700 bucks then you can build a much better pc than an xbox one.
  2. Might work for awhile till that PSU blows up and frys it all. Never skimp on the PSU. Also check out this site it will make creating(and posting) a build much easier.

    Yeah I would get a next gen console but I prefer PC much, much more. Plus, like I said before I'm tight on money

    I don't think I honestly need 750W. I think I'll only end up needing 500W max

    SLI, Crossfire and high-end CPUs all require at least 500 watts. Better to be safe than sorry!

    That and every unit below 700 watts rebranded by EVGA are made by HEC, who makes crap PSUs.

    I'm not running Crossfire, only one GPU. And the G3258 isn't really high end.

    Yeah I think I might go with this, now I just need a better case. Any recommendations?

    Did you read the OP's original post? All those parts added up to around $200! His budget is super tight! Besides that PSU has been pretty favourably reviewed even on JonnyGuru.

    If you go for the 500w version

    1. There will be less strain on the PSU
    2. You will have more future upgrade options available
