    Default Budget Gaming PC

    Sub $500 build

    I would like to share a build I am planning to get very soon
    and you might wanna make it as a reference on your
    upcoming purchase. Got these prices from newegg so
    if you'll ask how much it would be on your country,
    it would costs somewhere near these prices.



    Cooler Master Elite 110 = $39
    * One of the most cheapest ITX casing out there. Unlike Lian-Li's
    and Silverstone's, you could fit a standard sized PSU in it.

    Corsair CX 430 430W = $39
    *430w of power is more than enough for this entire build

    Biostar Hi-Fi B85N 3D = $69
    *Cheap and has most of the features those famous brands currently has.
    For this small platform, it has a good built-in audio.

    Intel Pentium G3258 3.2 Ghz LGA 1150 = $69
    *At $70 you get a special edition CPU from Intel. An unlocked
    CPU that overclocks well with the Biostar Hi-Fi B85N 3D.

    G.Skill Ripjaws X 4GB X 2 DDR3 1600mhz = $79
    *G.sKill sports a cheap and a kickass design on their
    rams. 8Gb with a 1600mhz speed is good enough to play current released games.

    Zotac GTX 750Ti 1GB 128-Bit GDDR5 = $139
    *Sports the new Maxwell architecture. A card so powerful to handle
    games like Battlefield 4, Titanfall, COD Ghosts etc. that peaks at
    insanely low 75 watts.

    Western Digital WD Blue 1TB SATA = $59
    1Tb is I think a pretty good enough capacity for this build.

    Total = $493
    (monitor excluded)

    A budget gaming PC that can handle latest games @ full HD.
    It has a small foot print that you could put it almost anywhere
    on your table.

    Smiki is correct. If you plan on doing any overclocking this is not the best board for it. If you are not then you will be fine.

    Welcome to PureOC!

    You build looks fine outside of what was mentioned above. The 750ti can handle all of the new games with reasonable settings. I currently have one install in my teen daughters rig. She plays everything under the sun with no problems. keep an eye out for memory sales so you can try to get your memory speeds up to 1866. 1600 is outdated and used to get systems up and running. The gains from going to 1600 to 1866 are noteworthy but any higher you will start seeing diminished returned with that CPU.

    Keep an eye out for other Mini Itx boards like the ones listed below. If you can snag one for a price close to the Biostar board jump on it. More stable and much better bios support.

    Make sure you post some pics when you get your parts and when you start building. Good luck!

    The 1600Mhz memory is fine in his case, the G3258 was not designed to handle 1866MHz, In this particular case, 1600MHz will perform well.
    As for the mobo, I would probably look for a alternative if you plan on OCing, I reviewed this particular board and was not the greatest in overclocking.

    I would look for the MSI Z87 I Gaming ITX board which is feature rich and much better in terms of overclockability.
    It is a bit more expensive, but if your plans are to OC the processor, something to consider plus you get some extras such as onboard Wifi

    Exactly, it's just fine. It's meh. If he can get 1866 for around the same price he sound. Even if not for this cpu his next. 6 months down the road he may upgrade. Just better to get more then you need now then have to make multiple upgrades later. If he can't find it on sale then roll with 1600 but I would at least try to find a way to get better then the bare minimum.

    True, If this plans are to upgrade down the line, 1866MHz is def. the way to go. However, with memory prices they way they are, unless you can catch a good deal its not worth it right now. But the first things I would change on that list is the Mobo if his plans are to OC.

    Exactly what i was saying my man. Agreed 100% on the board. If he plans to OC at all that board has to go or he will spend most of his time fighting and chasing problems around in circles. lol Kind of like how you did!

    The CPU can only chew DDR3-1600MHz Maximum. No sense in getting anything faster with that CPU, and I agree about the board being less than optimal.

    Find an ASRock or ASUS or MSI board for it.

    If you plan on doing any overclocking this is not the best board for it. If you are not then you will be fine.
