This is my first PC build. This PC is used for casual gaming and light development.
The G3258 is OC'ed to 4.0GHz.
This computer has served me well for two years. I look forward to my next build in 2019.
Good build. If I can make a suggestion, I think you should buy a 750 Ti instead of 750 :)
I agree. I have the 750 Ti and it works wonders, running most games at high settings at 60FPS. Keep in mind my monitor is 720p tho but it is great. My processor is a bit better tho, peep my build
Recommend the 950 over the 750 ti. Its newer, faster, and just about as expensive.
Got this used so it was only $85. I also bought it with the intent to upgrade the old HP. IF i knew i was gonna build a pc would have gotten it
I did, and I'm glad I got it for $145 brand new before prices went up. Thanks!
Definitely upgrade the GPU first. The Pentium should be able to hold up for at least a little while longer. The gpu will make much more of a difference.
Get the 950/60 or even the new RX 460/70. All under $200.
I'd say the upgrade order should be GPU, SSD, CPU, RAM, PSU.
I would wait and get the gtx 1050 or 1050 ti when it comes out.
I'm curious to see if they will do a 1050 TI this year. Since they skipped the last generation.
I recommend you wait for the 1050ti. I think nvidia plans on releasing it in a month or so
it's ok :)
You'll probably get more benefit by holding tight on the PSU and RAM and upgrading the CPU instead. I'll echo maggotshero and recommend the GTX 950 over the 750ti, or perhaps an RX 460 2GB.
Good introduction id say your best choice of upgradr would be a used i5 4460 as they are real cheap and good value and maybe something like a 1050TI possibly
anyways good job and welcome +1
