First build, on a $600 budget.

9 posts in this topic

Okay so I've alway had consoles and recently been wanting to switch to computer. 

Due to school and problems with the law, my budget for this build went super low!!! To $600. I don't need a superbadass build right now, i need something that will work for like minecraft, league of legends. Payday. COD, Good on streaming, and all that stuff. And will be good to do school work on as well.

That's the list a came up with. I dont how good that is. Im clueless when it comes to this, so i need help.

That's what Paul showed me, and it fits my budget alot better and has a monitor too. 

What are your thoughts. I need help! Need a computer asap! 

Thanks! :)

That was a quick example now that we have this post up and I'm starting to feel a little better I'll focus a bit more on a better build list.

lets get more eyes on this!

 

Here is a better build example that includes a monitor:

However it does reach over $600 before $45 mail in rebate

You can get a computer for $600 but I'm not sure you can get a streaming computer for that price. A headset and camera alone will set you back a couple hundred.

A computer that can game is possible at this budget but a system that would allow for live gaming broadcast which includes a monitor keyboard and mouse is going to be nearly impossible at this price point

You dont need a 750 Watt unless you are going to do crossfire I would suggest a 650 or 600 80 plus gold or bronze to shave off a little money

that was an "example" build not an actual thought out build list I replied with a better build list which includes a more adjusted or acceptable power supply

As the budget has now opened up to $800 to include PC Monitor Mouse & Keyboard this allows for quite a bit more upgrades to be considered.

At this price point I would start by seeing what you can find / get from family, friends, and local recycle or pawn shops. Buyiing used will be much cheaper than getting brand new hardware thus allowing for for upgrades elsewhere.

Here is my run at a $900 build. There are some compromises in this build to get onto the Intel Skylake platform. The storage is on the small end (only a 250GB SSD), no optical drive, and no aftermarket cooler. My reason for the Skylake platform is has a good upgrade path and a long life for the system, 4 years plus. This system can easily have more RAM added, more storage added, or an after market CPU cooler installed.

All of this of course is my opinion. However this is what I would do if it was my $900 to spend. Hope you like the build. Let me know what you think Anadroid614.
