Building a budget rig for a friend, needs to be as cheap as possible with performance similar to what is posted below. I don't want to get as much performance as possible for $500, I want performance at this level as cheap as possible, if that makes any sense.
Thanks. Really appreciate help on this. My second build (first was around $900, so I don't know the budget market really)
Also, will Ivy be out by this time, and if so will it be worth it at the price premium? (Opinion)
I was just looking for a rough idea, specific parts may change a little. I just realized I did not include a power supply... Reccomendations for good brands/models especially for PSU's and mobos, and an estimate of how much wattage to get?
Thanks for the thought on Ivy, azeem.
If you're having a budget build then a good 400 or 500W PSU should be enough. You could go easy on your other parts but picking a good PSU should be on your list as you don't want your system to be messed up with a crappy cheapo one
Corsair, Seasonic, Antec, XFX and Silverstone are considered the good brands for PSU's btw.
