Description

My friend said that his old PC was old and outdated and he also thought the it mightve had a virus. Also he wanted to do a little gaming and as well as his kids. I told him i could amd we chose out some parts and ordered them. Ans for the parts they work very well together so far. Ive played a little CSGO and it ran phenomenal with FPS in the 200-300 range. I didnt have much time to test much else but for him its more than good. This build went smooth-like and ran into no issues, luckily all the parts worked the first time and didnt have to rma anything. All in all i hope he's going to be happy with the build and i also hope his kids like it.

P.S. Let me know how my cable management is. Ive been around computers for a long time but this is my first actual build.

Nice build! +1 for GTX 1050 and air cooling!

But why did you install the cpu cooler in that vertical way?

I seems like the T2 has only 2 ways to mount it. Either the way that is in the picture or the opposite way eith the fan point downwards... i know right, wierd

Still new to computer building (my first build in the works) but that is one beautiful motherboard! From the little I know about cable management that looks great and shouldn't block airflow at all. How do you find the 1050? Wondering if it's worth buying.

+1 for the nice first build.

Its a great motherboard for the money especially. And 1050 is a champ and handles anything i can throw at it

Why'd you mount your CPU cooler horizontally like that?

Take a look at the reply above.

Oh, you're on an AMD socket, AMD socket compatibility makes many air coolers have to mount like that

Very nice of you!! Good decent selection of budget parts. Only thing I would have changed would have been a 60GB SSD for a boot but thats just me, you do you boo-boo.

Side note - What the he11 NZXT??? That diagram on the side of that box is alllll sorts of wrong. Fire your art department!

Hi! Yes, I almost went that way (i3 with maybe a 1060) but I went with the i5 as more of a future proof for gaming as it has 4 logical cores and would be better for editing and so forth. The 1050 would be a good gpu just to start.

the 1050 is awesome

I personally would spend that much money for a CPU and get a lower end GPU i would try to even them out. Try getting an I3 but getting a better GPU.

I would recommend getting a better Psu than that Evga 400w as the cheaper EVGA psu's are made by HEC, meaning they could go up In flames whenever, or never have a problem.

HEC? I guess I'll stay away from this PSU. Thanks:)

After reflections, I decided to use your build for my pc but I made some changes. Is it better if I add an AMD FX-8350 4.0Ghz 8-core processor and a Zotac GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 4GB Mini Video Card? Otherwise, my second question is: Could I play games such as Bo3, gta, league of legend and minecraft. If so, could I play them in the 150 fps? Thanks you for your help !

It would definitely be better, theyre better components. As for the games, with a 1050 ti and a 8350 im sure that rig would crush those games at 1080p obviously not on max setting but most likely on medium-high settings it would wreck it. Also don't forget that AMD zen is coming out soon. I would wait till january if i were you to see how good the price is. If you want to wait, if not then that rig would be a good decent build. Also try looking into i3's or lower end i5's, it will always give you that capability to upgrade to better components.

Thank you very much for your advice. This will certainly help me in my research.

I'm new to computers and was wondering to buy or build. If I build is this the most budget friendly or can you get cheaper. I only have about $200

  • 37 months ago
  • 1 point

it depends on the type of performance you want. for this price you're getting very good performance, but for 200 you're going to have to sacrifice quite a bit of performance. but with a 200$ budget its definitely possible.

Well I can get a little extra money maybe 300-350 but I can't do 500 because I don't have enough money

Just wait and save for it. Don't spend the money just keep it somewhere safe and when you have enough get a computer.
