So since I am currently a student and only have a limited amount of money I am looking for a pc build that won't cost more than around $450. I won't be needing a monitor, keyboard, mouse, case, PSU or hard drive. I probably wouldn't sli or crossfire with this rig. Preferred shops: wherever is cheapest Country: USA I tend to prefer Intel but I might go with AMD if it's cheaper for the same basic thing. OC: maybe if its easy to access and change. Resolutin:1920x1080 Since I am looking for a budget build I don't know all too much so it would be appreciated if someone could get back to me fairly quickly.
Here is a chart of your options. CPU: i3-2120 $129.99 or i5-2400 $179.99
Mobo: ASRock H61M/U3S3 $69.99 or ASRock Z68 PRO3 GEN3 $104.99
RAM: Any 2x2GB RAM should be good.
GPU: XFX HD-687A $144.99 or MSI 560 TI $204.99
DVD: Lite-ON $17.99
So I just checked both the PSUs that I currently have and the larger one is 215W so I'm assuming that it'll need replacing and for that I would probably spend roughly $65. Oh and I forgot to add no dvd drive to the unnecessary components.
PSU: Corsair CX430 $44.99 or XFX Core Edition 550 $57.99
Alright so I think I might just split a build with my parents and was wondering about which would be better to go with.
