$600 Gaming PC build
« on: September 23, 2016, 12:45:23 pm »
So my gaming laptop broke a while back and i was thinking about building a desktop. I'm just want to know if this is a good build for $600 (I already have a keyboard, mouse, and monitor). I didn't include a CPU cooler as everyone says that the stock cooler should be fine. I also didn't include a CPU cooler as the case comes with a 450 watt PSU.

http://pcpartpicker.com/list/CZcb2R
CPU: AMD Athlon X4 860K 3.7GHz Quad-Core ($89.89 @ OutletPC)
CPU Cooler: Stock cooler is fine
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-F2A68HM-H Micro ATX FM2+ Motherboard  ($41.98 @ Newegg)
Memory: Crucial Ballistix Sport 8GB (1 x 8GB) DDR3-1600 Memory  ($32.99 @ Newegg)
Storage: A-Data Premier SP550 120GB 2.5" Solid State Drive  ($37.99 @ NCIX US)
(I salvaged a 640 GB HDD from an old computer).
Video Card: Sapphire Radeon RX 480 8GB Video Card  ($359.99 @ SuperBiiz)
(I know an 860K will bottleneck the shit out of this, but im planning on upgrading to an i5 6500 when i have the money for it).
Case: Rosewill FBM-01 MicroATX Mini Tower Case  ($17.99 @ Newegg)
Power Supply: The case above includes a 450 watt PSU
Wireless Network Adapter: TP-Link Archer T4U USB 3.0 802.11a/b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi Adapter  ($37.95 @ B&H)
Total: $618.78

In this case you'd have to get a CPU cooler because the processor that you selected is a tray version, meaning it doesn't include a cooler.
You also didn't include a power supply and you'll definitely need one  :fox-;):

Oh yeah, i forgot to mention that the case comes with a 450 watt PSU. and the whole system uses a maximum of roughly 350W

Ok, I'd still recommend looking for a box version CPU instead of tray (tray=no cooler and shorter/no warranty box=Cpu with cooler wof=cpu without cooler)
