Building first computer.

Hello I would like to build my first PC preferably under 600aud. I live in Melbourn and the closest hardware shop is umart (http://www.umart.com.au/newsite/). Also if someone could find a easy instruction/check list to building one. I know the basics of building a Pc but Im sure I'm going to make a mistake. Thanks!

    Can't really get much cheaper without sacrificing a lot of performance or quality, unless you find a deal, find second hand parts, or have a look at different retailers. PSU is alright, with a platform of Seasonics GB Bronze, the same as s12ii. They're alright, however very old and are group regulated which downgrades stability.
  3. I'm very impressed that you got that much performance for $615 aud rexper :D

    OP what will the pc be used for? Gaming? Facebook? htpc? editing?
  4. More for gaming and some basic stuff. Would I be able to upgrade it and is is better than this Pc?https://www.officeworks.com.au/shop/officeworks/p/lenovo-a6-desktop-tower-h30-05-sylenh30a6

    Would it be better to use ddr3 ram and mootherboard?
  5. Read the manual for the mobo when you get it

    thats a huge scam , that pc is worth 50% of the price, not even.
  7. Ok thanks guys I thing I will go with that build and maybe give it an upgrade in the future.
  8. Hey just wondering what is the next upgrade should have for a graphics card card or CPU upgrade?

    Edit: would all of these work with the motherboard?

    To know what to upgrade depends on the reason you will upgrade, or the issue you experience. For example, if your FPS is below your desired performance goal, changing resolution won't help it, and CPU usage near 100% you'd want to upgrade the CPU.
    If your PC isn't performing to your FPS desire at the graphics settings you prefer, you'll want to upgrade the GPU.

    PCPartPicker's compatibility check will tell you which CPUs will work. Any using a LGA1151 socket will work. Keep in mind Intel unlocked CPUs (the ones with a 'k on the end) will not be able to overclock on that board.

    The next worthwhile CPU upgrade would be straight to an i5 or above.
  10. I think I'll get an i5 7400 or 7500 just because I feel like I'm going to need more than 2 cores in a few years. Thanks for the suggestions!

    The g4560 has two physical cores however includes hyperthreading so the operating system sees it as 4 logical threads. It's still a powerful CPU, better performance than a lot of the old FX AMD CPUs which use a lot more than 2 cores.

    But, I won't stop you going for the i5, as long as you have the budget for it.
  12. all those cpus will work and any 6th gen will work too, not just 7th gen

    The g4560 is a decent budget gaming cpu, but if you're looking at i5s get the 7500 or 7600 as they are higher clocked than the 7400.
