Description

the worlds most perfect over 50 fps on ultra always gaming budget pc. All the parts were chosen carefully and by a experienced pc builder(myself). It is near impossible to get more performance for the price You can always upgrade and the computer is equivalent to what most people spend over 800 on. But you could also cut down on price on things like the hdd or mobo or case or psu and either keep the money or use it else where in the build like a 280x or something of the kind. Enjoy

Obviously not a $550 dollar budget, clearly it says $561.91. That's $11.91 cents. That's enough for two little ceasars pizzas. plus tax.

550 is the target budget price. $12 is in the margin of error

nigerianjones 2 points 54 months ago

The comment was of a sarcastic nature, though while looking at the part list I couldn't believe that all of the parts added up to $561.

just making sure, sorry about that then. You can never be too careful though, stupidity lurks around every corner...

I can dig it

Nice for the money

How is this case? Im using the same case for a build for friend

cammayes submitter 1 Build 1 point 54 months ago

it is a beautiful case well done but there could be more cable management room, but there is still plenty for a non-modular even

At only $150 more than a PS4, you get a better overall experience! Great choices!

Minus (for the most part) <10 year old voltorbs using screech over their microphones (Its super effective!!!).

Can it run BF4? is so on what settings and how much fps does it get on average?

cammayes submitter 1 Build 1 point 54 months ago

about 40 avg fps on bf4 all the highest settings with little overclocking

Honestly I think it's nice. However, why not switch to a Quad core, and then put the extra money from switching to a Quad to get more RAM? I mean, I have 4GB of RAM now, and it's very... erm... Low-end.

cammayes submitter 1 Build 2 points 54 months ago

the build was at first ment to be something that would get upgrades. i oringanly had a mobo that supported crossfire and a more powerful power suply but i thought about it and realized that the chances of it ever getting upgraded before i got a new machine was slim so i just went the no upgrade route to save like 50 or a little more dollars.

CommMatt 1 Build 1 point 54 months ago

Ohhh. Thanks for explaining!

cammayes submitter 1 Build 1 point 54 months ago

any time

Zirthh 1 point 54 months ago

trust me get an aftermarket cpu cooler amd doesnt do very well on thermal pre installed paste and doesnt consider the speeds and tempatures of their own cpu's change that cooler asap

cammayes submitter 1 Build 1 point 54 months ago

if i was to get one right away it would surpass the buget but yes i know

JoeJoinson 1 point 54 months ago

Would you recommend more cores over faster speeds? (I don't plan to over clock any time soon)

cammayes submitter 1 Build 1 point 54 months ago

no with games right now any more than six cores and you wont see any difference but faster speeds do help but if you want to make this computer faster for gaming you should consider a r9 280 or 280x

KiLL17 1 point 50 months ago

Why not a 6350? What do you mean with litlle overclock?

PS: Sorry for my bad english

ThatGuy34 1 point 45 months ago

Hows that motherboard

NIghtmarescreams 1 point 44 months ago

I built a computer with a r9 280 for only 490 and that gives me more than 60 fps on ultra in every game, so i doubt it is impossible. Anyway, nice build, but do you get any overheating problems? I used to get some overheating issues when I had the stock cooler on my fx 6300, but it was fixed when I got a hyper 12 evo.

My only over tips if you have slightly more cash would be 8gb of ram of a higher frequency (I found an 8gb set at 2133 for 35) And possibly get a hybrid

Greensuit1 1 point 43 months ago

how many system fan headers on the MOBO

at 1080p with a stable overclock it will run 40 or above steady on bf4 or crisis
