Well thats a challenge if I ever saw one. Dont expect great performance from this.

APU: AMD A10-5800K. $130

Mobo: AsRock FM2A75M-DGS. $60

RAM: G.Skill Ares 8GB (2x4GB) 1600Mhz CL9 1.5v. $39 ($5 promo)

PSU: Antec Neo Eco 520W. $54 ($10 promo)

Case: Athena Power CA-GSB01DA. $30
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Total: $368
Its over budget, but you cant really go much below this. Already cheaped out on the case, and went as low as is recommended on the PSU. You might be able to find a cheaper HDD and RAM, but I wouldnt expect by much.

You might be better off buying a PlayStation 3.

It's not overly hard to fit a system under $300. It won't game THAT well, and you won't have features like USB 3.0 and SATA III, but unless you're getting external hard drives (USB 3.0 helps these, but not much else) or a SSD (You're NOT getting a SSD at this price point, lol.)

At this price point, you can cheap out on the MOBO, because I seriously doubt you'll be overclocking.

You never need more than 4GB for gaming, as proven by numerous tests.

The Pentium outperforms the A10 in almost everything. There's no difference between the Sandy Bridge Pentiums besides clock speed, so for gaming, the lowest Pentium will do just as well as say, an A10.

A bit over, but really, $10 isn't hard to come by.

The AMD HD 7770 outperforms the 6770, but it's a really small difference. If you really want to stay under $300, then you'll have to sacrifice a few fps (5-ish, nbd)

If you have that extra $100, and gaming is your priority, you can go with the above build and outperform the balls off the others with a much better GPU.

The CPU won't bottleneck this, you can see this in the System Builder Marathons from Tomshardware. They used a Celeron with a flippin GTX 560 Ti, lol. This is the best possible GAMING build you can get for $400.

Good luck!

That may be true, but it's still a good idea to get 8GB because of all the other things people tend to do with their computer. 4GB is enough to run everything, 8GB is enough to never think about memory again and not have to bother closing applications to get good gaming performance out of your machine. 4GB is also going to result in lower overall performance due to the necessity of using the page file. With 8GB, you can turn it off entirely.

In a super low-budget machine like this, it's not such an easy call, but I find that people can usually break their budget a little to get that little extra memory.

Woah, now. The 7770 is about twice as fast than the 6770 on most games.

http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/536?vs=613

That said, your parts list is going to have the best gaming performance. The 7850 seems to be the sweet spot in these low end builds, providing enough muscle to max out most games at 1080p and get close with the more demanding ones. LGA 1155 means he can upgrade to a beefy IVB chip in the future without a platform upgrade. An H61 board presents some limitations, but the budget market is a world of compromises.

All in all, I'd say that's a damn fine $400 machine.

man can you link all the parts in amazon please
October 28, 2012 3:17:21 PM

Brian's build is not worth it. the 7850 is much better than the 5850 and the Pentium outperforms the Phenom II X4 965. It'd be worth like, $350, if he goes that low.

I'll try to find everything at amazon, but really, NCIX US has some of the best prices. The Antec 450W PSU for $36 at NCIX US is a tier 2 PSU, and all the prices include shipping. Basically buying that PSU at NCIX US and paying for shipping would be cheaper than buying the same one at amazon with amazon prime. Pcpartpicker lists the cheapest sites to buy from, and amazon has some questionable retailers.

Motherboard: http://www.amazon.com/ECS-H61H2-M12--LGA1155-microATX-M... ($23 dollars MORE, NOT eligible for amazon prime, HUGE difference)

As you can see, amazon is more expensive, but it's your choice where to buy it from. If you buy from amazon you WILL go over budget.

Why thank you ;P

I don't usually look at benchmarks, and I heard somewhere the 6770 and 7770 were the same. I must've mistaken that for 5770 vs 6770, my bad.

Newegg doesn't ship to India.Is there a way the parts can ship here
October 28, 2012 3:51:11 PM

http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/99108-8-does-newegg-s...

Read this post, yen10 seems to have an idea of what to do. Newegg doesn't ship internationally, but there is a company that can forward shipments. Not sure if I'd risk it, save up that $70 I guess. You can get a cheaper video card to make up for the costs by getting a Radeon HD 7770 GHz Edition.

It'll max the same games but you'll sacrifice a little fps. It'll stay within your budget though.

See my thread: http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/104508-8-parts

I'll sell you everything there for $400, you just need a case.

No offense, but that computer isn't worth $400. Might get $200-$300 on ebay.

1. Triple channel memory? Only the X58 platform supported that.
2. HD 5850? Beaten soundly by the 7850.
3. XION's PowerReal PSUs are overpriced junk, and 850W for a single video card is pointless.
4. 5400 RPM notebook hard drive in a desktop, as the only drive? Recipe for pain.
5. You already said you'd take $350 in the thread, and now you're asking for $400?

When you can build a new PC for the same amount, and have it perform significantly better, then your price is wrong.

The reviews on the graphic card says to buy hd 7850 with 2gb of ram what do you think

Get the standard 2GB model. Its worth the extra $20 or so, as games can use more than a GB of VRAM at 1080p gaming.
