I've seen a lot of people saying it could be "ports" that are blocked but i have absolutely no clue what that means. Nor do i know what "Half-Open Nat/Closed" means either. Any more info into what that are would be much appreciated.

I have an old case with 1, 80mm fan in the back, but i'm just not sure if that would be enough. But i have been thinking about used parts, but i really didn't want to get any due to performance issues, but i guess cases don't really matter THAT much so i might look into it.

While the Pentium is a little bit better than the A8, the A8's integrated graphics are MUCH better than the Pentiums Intel hd 510. Also i'm not really planning on upgrading this computer, i figure if your budget is under $300 there's no way you can make it upgradable. So while getting into DDR4 ram and socket LGA1151 would be kinda nice, i don't really think it will make a difference in the long run.

Not planning on playing any big games any time soon. All the games i would play would be free, and coming from playing games on an AMD sempron 140 with 2gb of ram, i think i can deal with playing on medium or low graphics. Also i might be getting a GTX 1050 or 1050ti later down the line.

OOOOHHHHHH, yes, both sides have little holes at the very bottom all the way across the case, and then a thing that looks like a side fan port, but is just there for airflow on the left side.

Thanks for all the input.

That's not a good PSU bro, from experience.

the PSU just needs to last at least 3-4 years and it has VERY high ratings, maybe you just got unlucky.

I would definitely recommend adding an RX-560 to your list of future upgrades. It does run about 80 bucks for the 2gb version however.

With the way my money works, i can't get $80 all at once. Also i was planning on doing a big upgrade once i get a job, and just getting a GTX 1050ti

since the new intel CPU's are about to come out you may want to look into those to see what they offer.

I did not know there were new Intel stuff coming out (sighs) i guess i have to do more research XD

Really not a bad list for a bare basics cheap computer.

Thank you :)

get a TB HDD. It caries the best cost:storage value around your price range. You can pick up a 320GB for 21 or a 1tb for 42.

My problem with that isn't value, its straight up price. I won't be able to pay $50 at once, i can pay $30 at once. also i don't really need 1tb or space and i'll already have 600+ gb once i put the new HDD in it. Once i do a real upgrade to the system though, i'll probably get a 1tb HDD.

Overall though, thank you for all the feedback. Not a lot of people are this helpful.

Sadly there is no "save more" option. I'm to young to get a job and all i have is $199. Any extra money would come from my mom. (yes i know how pathetic that sounds) Upgrades over time might happen. So if there was something that was only like $30 i might be able to add it on within a few months.

Spending more for the 4600 would put the price up to $260, getting 8gb or ram would put it up to $290, either way you forgot the flash drive which i need so i can put windows 10 on it. Which raises the price to $265, and it's $290 before mail in rebates. My actual budget was $200, i just went up to $230 so i wouldn't have to use an old hard drive and fan.

Problem 1: You said the Pentium will crush the A8 in EVERY aspect, but you forgot one aspect, integrated graphics. The A8 has %80 better iGPU performance than the Pentium. (according to userbenchmarks) 2: I've heard ram plays a big role once you start using integrated graphics rather than dedicated. So while normally 4gb is fine, with integrated graphics it might not be. 3: I don't think i'll ever use a full terabyte of space, so while that is a good HDD, i don't really need that much space. 4: While that is a good PSU, its only cheap due to the mail in rebate.

If you put it in userbenchmarks the i5 that was in the prebuilt you suggested is %65 better than the A8 BUT the integrated graphics for the A8 are %300+ better than the i, and since i wont really be able to get a graphics card any time soon the A8 seems like a better choice.

Well here's a little clarity: I'm to young and can't get a job yet, all i have is $200, the extra $30 i had in my build i would have to ask my mom for, (yes i know how pathetic that sounds) and for the build you suggested i would have to ask her for $50 (technically $80 if i know how mail in rebates work) So as far as saving up goes, i'd have to wait a couple years before i can get a job. (i also don't have an allowance) But thanks for the help anyway, i actually was looking at the Pentiums myself before i saw the A8.

To answer your fist question, i will be using it for light gaming, games such as roblox, minecraft, swtor, and other free games. As far as your build suggestion goes, there are 2 problems with it, 1: its over budget, and i forgot to mention my actual budget is 200, not 230. 2: the Pentiums integrated graphics aren't even nearly as powerful as the A8, And while i would like a good upgrade path, to be honest, i don't think i'll be upgrading for another 2+ years and with how fast this stuff gets out of date, i'd rather just buy a new one.

The only way you can cut out a little bit of cost would be to cut out a LOT of performance. Personally i'm not a fan of SSDs on cheap builds but as for the parts themselves go they're all pretty cheap as is, although I've noticed prices have been kinda high right now so if you wait a month or two it might drop $30. (about a month ago the Pentium was $60-$65 and a GTX 1050ti was $130-$140)

CPU: at your price range, most people will tel you the Pentium g4560 is the best coice

MOBO: nothing special about this one

RAM: 8gb should do good for all your games and you can upgrade later

Storage: you COULD go for an ssd but at your price range you be getting very little storage

GPU: gefore gtx 1050ti is a really good chip, it also has 4gb of sdram

Case: random cheap atx case that i like

PSU: you have a little extra money left over so i would look for a better PSU if you can, but this one should do fine if you want to save the extra buck

1: I wasn't saying you should buy based on brand, i was just pointing out how it wasn't some shady brand selling you a cheap PSU that will prolly blow up.

2: The average rating on this site was 4.5/5 the average rating on amazon was 4.5/5 and the average rating on new egg was 4/5 so yes, it does have good ratings.

3: That review was for the 500b. (also i don't really want to read that much lol)

4: To the best of my knowledge the CXM, TXM and quark are all more expensive.

I never said it was the BEST psu, i said it was cheap and reliable, so if you want to spend more money then get a CXM, TXM, or quark, but if you want to save some money and still get a good PSU, i would go with that one.

CPU: everyone will tell you at this price point the pentium g4560 is the BEST choice

MOBO: cheap and highly rated

RAM: 8Gb should do you good for any game you play

Storage: At this low of a budget an SSD is not worth it, you'll get very little storage and you'd get better overall performance by spending the money elsewhere

Graphics card: GTX 1050ti should do you good for most (in not all) games you play, there's a little room left in the budget though if you wanted to get one with 2 fans instead of one, but i really don't think you need it

Case: The case depends A LOT on personal preference, but this is the case that i was looking at for my build

PSU: Its cheap and reliable, Evga is a trusted brand and this PSU has pretty decent ratings, most people will tell you to get this $50 corsair semi modular PSU, but personally, i'd rather save the $20

I'm not a PC expert and I've never looked at part in your price range so sadly i cant tell you much :/ i do recognize that HDD cause it was recommended to me on a different forum and it looks pretty good, also I've seen that case before and its a pretty solid case. As for the graphics card I've been looking at a 1050 ti for my own build but haven't looked at any that were above $150 also the ram looks a little pricey but i love in the USA so maybe its a good price over there. As far as the CPU, PSU, and case fan go, i can't tell ya much about em. i hope your build go good though, best of luck!

I'd go with blue, white and black are kinda boring, i think it's nice to add some color to a build. Also what is the color of your desk, keyboard, mouse, headphones, and monitor? choose a color that will match the rest of your set up.

Its all about personal preference, but here are some things to think about, 1: if you use your computer at night then blue led lights will hurt your eyes 2: if you go black then you can add a different color later on (with led fans) 3: red is a very common color people use for their computers so red led fans red cases and ect. shouldn't be hard to find 4: whats the rest of your set up look like? choose a color that would best fit your desk, headphones, mouse, keyboard, and monitor 5: This is really all up to you, i'm sorry i cant be much help but when it comes to color its 100% personal preference. My favorite color is blue and that's the color i'm going to do for my computer but again, ask yourself which one YOU like the best. Best of luck!

Download Windows onto the flash drive and use the key that you buy. if you don't know what this means then do a little research about your options for getting windows. also i'm not 100% sure about that HDD, another guy recommended this one: https://pcpartpicker.com/product/Jjp323/toshiba-internal-hard-drive-hdwd110xzsta but i'd do the research yourself on which 1TB HDD is best.

MOBOs with h110 chipsets might not work with the CPU you picked out, here's a MOBO that should work fine, https://pcpartpicker.com/product/JNH48d/msi-b250m-pro-vd-micro-atx-lga1151-motherboard-b250m-pro-vd

Also the i3 really isn't worth the money, the Intel Pentium g4560 is a much better choice. (look it up for yourself, its good to do research)

Two sticks of ram will normally fill up all the slots on a micro atx MOBO so you won't be able to upgrade ram in the future, but its said to give you a little better performance, so research the pros and cons of 2x4gb or ram vs. 1x8gb of ram and see which one you want. (unless you already have)

Not sure why you picked out that HDD (cause i've never heard/seen it before) but i would recommend a cheaper one such as this https://pcpartpicker.com/product/MwW9TW/western-digital-internal-hard-drive-wd10ezex (unless you picked it out for a specific reason)

That PSU seem VERY expensive and its only bronze certified and isn't even modular, i would go with one of these two: https://pcpartpicker.com/product/MfvZxr/evga-450w-80-bronze-certified-atx-power-supply-100-b1-0450-k1 or https://pcpartpicker.com/product/dnxfrH/corsair-power-supply-cx430

As for the case, that part of the build is really up to you and what you want.

If you do decide to get the Pentium instead of the i3 then i would use the money to upgrade the graphics card. (i've never heard of the one you picked so sadly i can't give any feedback on the current one)

I hope some of this help.

Well first you have to tell us what wattage you need, then we can recommend specific PSUs. As for now here's the advice i have to give: never get anything under +80 certified, and even then i would still only go with +80 bronze, you can filter power supplies by their certification on this website. Also one big rule of PSUs is "NEVER CHEAP OUT ON YOUR POWER SUPPLY" as you mention they will blow up if you don't get a good one.... ok they wont blow up, but still spend a little extra to get a trusted PSU. That's about all the advice i can give you for now, but if you tell me the wattage you need then i might be able to help you a little more.

If you click on the link for the PSU you can see the history of its price, and as you can see its a little funky, its drops from $50 to $20 quite often. So when you buy your parts for your computer you might find out that that PSU is now $50. But of course if you build it soon or build it when its at a low price point, then that PSU should do fine. PSUs have A LOT of price drops so when you build your computer, take one more look to see if any good PSUs are on sale. The MOBO seems pretty solid for a ATX MOBO. I've been personally looking at the orange version of that case and it looks like a good case. The Graphics card looks good and the storage looks good too. overall if you're happy with it, it looks like a really nice build.

EVERYONE will tell you to get a $50 PSU from corsair but i don't think you really need it. The PSU i picked out has good reviews, its bronze certified, its from a trusted brand, so if you want to spend that money elsewhere (i put it into the HDD) then i think its worth it. The case should do you good but i would look for cases on your own cause they have a lot to do with personal preference. At this price range the Intel Pentium g4560 is the best you can get. The ram is cheep and should do you good, i wouldn't get 1x8GB stick of ram for anything over $60 (of course there are some reasons to do so) With such a tight budget i really would advise against getting an SSD, they only help you once: when you load stuff up. Once stuff is loaded they do absolutely nothing (or at least very little) else to help performance, this wouldn't be much of a problem if they weren't SO FREAKING EXPENSIVE. Of course as with everything, it all comes down to personal choice. I would highly recommend giving details on what your preferences are for better build suggestions, but as for now, i feel like I've already made this a little to long so i hope you found this helpful :)

The ram is cheep, its from a trusted brand, and i wouldn't pay much more than $60 for ram unless you had a good reason. Over all: really good build. i recommended a different HDD and graphics card but the RX 580 and the GTX 1060 6gb are pretty close in performance, so if you prefer the GTX for some reason then feel free to use it, plus 1TB should be enough space so you don't really NEED 2TB.

Build B is much better in my opinion. The i3's aren't really worth the extra money, also i would go with this graphics card https://pcpartpicker.com/product/XYDzK8/asus-radeon-rx-580-4gb-dual-video-card-dual-rx580-o4g and this PSU https://pcpartpicker.com/product/MfvZxr/evga-450w-80-bronze-certified-atx-power-supply-100-b1-0450-k1 Other than that this seem like a pretty solid build.
