PCpartpicker didn't find all the amazon links.

Case Amazon link:

SSD Amazon link:

With some pretty easy overclocking, messing around with XMP settings in BIOS and voltage, you can very easily push the CPU to 3.8 Ghz, People claim to push it to 4.0 Ghz though say it seemed to be a little unstable.

If you haven't cleaned out your PSU, you should. If it's younger than 5 years it's definitely still good. 100$ saved.

Windows can be obtained for free, only disadvantage is a small Windows 10 watermark on the lower right corner, and some of the OS customization settings are locked. It doesn't bother me, and it certainly doesn't convince me to spend 100$ for customization.

M.2 nvme SSDs are many times faster than a SATA SSD, for a boot drive you won't see a huge difference in boot time, but file transfer and such it definitely shines.

The extra fan is for an exhaust for the back of the case. You'll need a fan hub Here: Forgot about it :/

Ive built with this case before, and it comes with a nice SSD mounting array behind the motherboard, a kinda annoying but spacious PSU basement and great air flow. tempered glass oooo

Buy zip ties. like 50. Zip ties are your friend and so is your fully modular PSU

If you want help with your CPU overclocking, you can pm me, or look up a guide on overclockers forum. Really helpful people over there.

I made it all Amazon, because of prime, which is can save you a lot of shipping. With the cheaper vendors, its cheaper for the part, but the shipping would put you over budget.

u/wax2142 · 1 pointr/buildmeapc

Hey dude, Singaporean here as well! And For you I'll recommend getting a new case and Motherboard +CPU.

here is a spreadsheet that I use for people I help to build PCs for, with prices for stuff from Sim Lim (because having local warranty is good). But yeah, this is just for reference. You can always try amazon esp to save abit on older Ryzens and RAM but RMA may be a bit of a pain just so that you are aware. But for cases, the techware Nexus is pretty solid choice and I think it's only $50 SGD.


IIRC it's the same case that Aftershock uses on their more budget lineup.


In any case, If I were you, I'll either wait for the Ryzen 3000 series if I want local warranty, or if I dont mind shipping from amazon and potentially having to deal with overseas RMA, wait for Ryzen 2000 sales on amazon after the 3000 series launches. Or get the 1600 from amazon now. since the prices of those have been crazy cheap these days and TBH it wont bottleneck your RX 580 anyways.

SSD wise, how big do you want it? a 500GB WD Blue 3D is like $100SGD now, so not too different from say a 500GB 860 evo once you add in the conversion rate + Import Tax+ Shipping. But if you wait for a sale on the 1TB 860Evo, those could be quite nice, since I've seen amazon sell those for 130USD during sales, which is quite cheap considering the lower performance 860QVO is like $200SGD right now from local distributors (and the failure rate on Samsung SSDs are so low that the RMA risks are minimal). as for the 860 evo, no reason to buy one of those in SG now since for almost the same price you can get the Adata XPG SX8200 Pro but with performance matching or surpassing in some areas, the much vaulted 970 Evo.


Edit: Just saw the WD Blue 3D 1TB for $115USD on amazon.

Things i changed:

  1. a better gpu; u can run max settings at about 144 fps in many games, at least a hell of a lot better than the other card.

  2. 3600x is the 3600 with a slightly better stock cooler, but since u already have a cooler it makes no diff and is 50 bucks cheaper

  3. i gave u a nvme ssd as it is faster

  4. the new ryzen chips like faster memory so i gave u that (u still have rgb)

  5. this monitor is better in my opinion.

  6. better power supply and it is fully modular which makes cable management a lot easier.

    Ps u can probably jump to 1440p if u want

    The monitor is which is $260
    So about $1696 usd.

    I would still check with other though about this build. Also go to r/monitors for monitor help

Power Supply

Graphics Card



Comes out to about $405. To be honest I’d recommend a new build completely. That case doesn’t have very good airflow, and I’m guessing HP has a pretty cheap motherboard in it too. But obviously you’re just trying to upgrade on a budget so this should be good. You could opt out of getting the CPU if you wanted to save some money if you wanted.

u/officer21 · 1 pointr/buildmeapc

/r/hardwareswap might be your best bet for a graphics card. 1060 3GB's are around $200.

Pretty Case

Ryzen is definitely a good call. There is an R5 1600 deal on amazon today, $130 after rebate. Definitely a great deal.

u/BasedGodTbh · 1 pointr/buildmeapc

Thank you so much!! I have that in my cart, I assume you meant this one?

As far as a case, I think I landed on this one, does that seem okay? I don't think it comes with fans so I added a 3 pack of Aigo fans to go with it, hopefully it's all compatible. If you don't think this is a good case would you recommend anything similar?

I really appreciate the help! No one I know in real life builds, so this is extremely helpful.

u/Comma-Bot-9000 · 2 pointsr/buildmeapc

My pleasure!

See how cheap that is? Crazy easy upgrade, and installation is going to be super easy just hit up YouTube and you can do it no problem. Just remember, this isn't necessarily the only upgrade you need, it's just the easiest and cheapest upgrade you could get on right now. You'll definitely see improvement though!

Let me know how it goes!

u/CN14 · 1 pointr/buildmeapc

ah cool, thanks. - For comparison, The Gtx 660 has a TDP of 140W and the GTX 970 has a TDP of 145W. It seems as if a GTX 970 would work off the bat without you needing to upgrade your PSU.

However, if you do feel like getting a new PSU - My suggestion in your price point (based on what I can see on, I'm from the UK so not so familiar with pricing or good PC part shops in the US) the $60 Modular Corsair CX500 is a good shout. I myself have used both the Corsair CX600 and CX750 myself, and am currently using the Corsair RM850 at the moment.

Of course, Corsair isn't the be all, end all of PSU's, but they're the ones I've a lot of experience with and have had a positive experience with. EVGA and Coolermaster do great PSU's too. This one from EVGA and is $40 and more than meets your power requirements. It isn't modular, however, which means more cable clutter (though makes no performance difference as far as I am aware)

u/sensilla · 2 pointsr/buildmeapc

Thanks for your reply! I agree about the PSU and now that you mention it, I have been getting the Blue Screen of Death randomly lately. Would this PSU work with this setup:
Maybe I'll forget about the DVD drive and upgrade the PSU.

And yeah I know my budget is super low but it's all I can afford at the moment. As for performance, I plan on playing pretty casually once in a while so hopefully this fits the bill. Thanks again!

both should be great for 1440p 144hz gaming, the bottom one is very similar to my own build

also wifi card:

u/MisterMeowgi_ · 1 pointr/buildmeapc

Understandable. Right now AMD has a much better line of cpus in terms of price to performance. Which is why he asked. I would go with a Ryzen platform over Intel atm. You'll save a lot of money, and you'll get much more for it at the mid range and high end skus. You can't go wrong with a ryzen 5 2600 or 3600. Some good boards to look at would be the Asrock B450m Pro4, the MSI B450 Tamahawk, or the Gigabyte B450 Aorus. Any of those are good choices and have plenty of features you'd probably want.

u/RedStonedPanda · 2 pointsr/buildmeapc

Amd Ryzens are pretty nice at the moment and cheap. Ryzen 1600 is a good choice. I recommend a SSD disk and a second one HDD so you have a faster system and also an storage disk. Graphic card will be the hardest. Maybe a cheap 1050 2 gb will do.

Processor: Ryzen 1600 -

Hard disk (hdd): barracuda works -

Graphic card (gt 1050; 2 gb) -

Motherboard: B350 for ryzen -

Ram: corsair vengeance 8 gb -

Heatsink from artic -

Power supply: standard -

Case: also standard stuff -

The total is around 700. You may need to add some more things put this is enough for full functionallity. Also, I wouldnt buy the parts on amazon, but this way you can search them in a good electronics shop from your country which adds the assembly. Standards can be changed easily, that depends on what you preffer.

u/MoChuang · 5 pointsr/buildmeapc

Just get a USB wifi adapter. Something like this or if you want one thats smaller and less in the way you can get this one. The smaller one probably has less range and lower max speed.

Or if you have extra expansion slots and need faster wifi you can get a PCIe wifi card like this.

NOTE: I haven't done much research on this so the listed products are just examples of the types of solutions available. By no means am I recommending these as the best in their respective classes. I just own TP-link stuff and trust them is all.

u/ArtIsWeird · 1 pointr/buildmeapc

Thanks so much for your input, it's very appreciated. One question though, why not go with a Kingston SSD like this? Seems better and cheaper (at least where I'm located).

And the case's included fans + the stock CPU cooler will be sufficient? And quiet?

Thanks again!

EDIT: Also, this build ends up being at least $1100 here in Europe :/

u/CraftedPixelReddit · 1 pointr/buildmeapc

I did my absolute best to fit within the budget and came up with this. This will use the integrated Vega 11 graphics in the 2400G which should be good for most games at low - medium. If you are looking for a future upgrade then get a RX 570 used for 100$ on ebay.

90$ monitor


150$ Ryzen 5 2400G

20$ 500GB 7200RPM WD BLUE HDD

25$ Rosewill Case


35$ 400W PSU

total adds up to 405$

Will be able to play any game at 1080p, you can get windows for free using the guide at the top of the sub, if you want a non watermarked version you can replace the i7 with a i5 7600k or 6600k.

Also for about $100 more you could pick up a GTX 1070 that will outperform the Rx 480 by a notable margin.

And here's the second one:

I'm not sure how much memory you'll want so I put in 4GB, if you need more then go with what I listed for the other build.

I went with a small form factor for this, should look pretty natural by a TV.

Also, we ask if you're near a MicroCenter because they often charge less if you can pick a component up from their stores.

Edit: Have you considered a Chromecast instead of a second pc? It won't be able to do as much but it can stream Chrome tabs to your TV or pull videos (like YouTube) straight from your wifi.

u/jungjai153 · 1 pointr/buildmeapc

The CPU Cooler is optional because the R5 1600 comes with a pretty decent heat sink that is RGB and you could try picking up a different variant of 1070 to save some money. Lastly you could try looking for faster ram which helps Ryzen performance a bit but all this is down to personal preference.
Brand: Zotac
Brand: EVGA

Both brands are great

u/usa4life · 2 pointsr/buildmeapc

Not much better you can do than a [build with an i7-6700K, GTX 1080, and Samsung 950 PRO] (

Throw in a good ATX case-- Corsair makes good ones so [something like this] ( would probably do the trick.

Edit: A CPU cooler would help too if you end up overclocking-- [the hyper 212 evo works great for me] (

u/NakedAndBehindYou · 1 pointr/buildmeapc

Probably not close to top tier performance, but this deal on Amazon is the best value I have found.

Any faster than that seems to get much more expensive for each little bit of extra performance.

u/BearsEatGrub · 1 pointr/buildmeapc

Monitor: I would recommend the ASUS VG248QE and nothing else.

Keyboard: Any mechanical keyboard; the Tomoko mechanical keyboard is a great budget board. If you have a bit more money to spend, the razer blackwidow and corsair k70 are great keyboards.

Mouse: I'd recommend the logitech g402 or g502 for a great ergonomic, gaming mouse. You can also go with any of the many razer mice if you don't need so many buttons.

The i5 7500 and GTX 1060 will be able to play the most demanding FPS games at 60FPS+ at ultra or almost ultra settings at 1080p. I also included a 120GB SSD for your OS and games. You really don't need the aftermarket cooler on there, but stock cooler might get a bit too loud and too hot under heavy load.

u/Buckedpants · 2 pointsr/buildmeapc

there are some good deals on amazon for ram right now, if you really want RGB, the ram you chose is the best, but if you don't care about that, just get the corsair memory below on amazon, save 25 dollars. Other than that, you have a solid build.

Ok, good to know. I just realized that I purchased a replacement power supply a year and a half ago. Do you see any issues with using the 500watt one I already have or would you recommend a new unit?

u/blanco76 · 1 pointr/buildmeapc

Thanks for the responses. I think we’re close to seeing which direction makes sense. I know there are cons to buying prebuilt however want to verify. Below is a prebuilt he has his eye on, are the custom builds a better option?

u/hehehehahahaha · 2 pointsr/buildmeapc

There's a subreddit /r/suggestmeapc for this. But anyways my sister was in the same boat because she was too afraid to learn how to build a PC for fear of breaking a part, and also because she lives across the country so I can't do it for her.

She ended up getting this PC

CYBERPOWERPC Gamer Xtreme VR GXiVR8020A2 Desktop Gaming PC (Intel i5-7400 3.0GHz, AMD RX 480 4GB, 8GB DDR4 RAM, 1TB 7200RPM SATA III HDD, 802.11AC WIF

Pretty good for the price if I do say so myself. I visited her and checked it out and it was a pretty nice PC, only thing you'd really have to do is switch the power supply out because Cyberpower PC is known for some ass PSUs. Comes with an alright mouse and keyboard too.

Something more like this seams better. Reaching a higher price now but I think it's worth it. Was thinking of upgrading the graphics card to the one below also, is this the best 1080 for under 550? This one is also factory overclocked would it still be compatible?

Does anyone think this setup can run two of these monitors

Monitor 1


Of course I will not be gaming on both at the same time, most likly I will have Teamspeak or youtube up on the second one.

If so, which monitor do you recommend out of the two?

P.S I plan on playing GTA V and Fallout 4 with this gaming setup.

u/Andreas0Cool · 1 pointr/buildmeapc

Because I want to keep the budget as low as possible will these work together?

I know the CPU is kinda weak but still. If I went any higher it would probably need a BIOS update but I don't have any other CPUs. So should I buy these? No higher price tag. If you want recommend me other pieces at the same price, that are better. All will be purchased from

u/Paranoid_Llama · 1 pointr/buildmeapc

Thank you!

The PSU I have is specifically this one:;psc=1

Would this be okay to use for the build?

u/DefaultWhiteDude · 1 pointr/buildmeapc

What’s a board for that build with good gaming WiFi? The dorms don’t have ethernet. Or should I get this?

u/AFCronus · 1 pointr/buildmeapc

Make sure you double check all of the compatibility


I am not a professional and do not guarantee the quality or usability of the build suggested above.

u/Varrock · 1 pointr/buildmeapc

why not a ryzen 3600?

is a 144 hz monitor really necessary? I was thinking of gettin this monitor since it is nearly 100 bucks, slim bezels, 60 hz, and more importantly IPS display so accurate colors for photoshopping

u/HyndeSyte2020 · 2 pointsr/buildmeapc

Assuming PCI-E: I just got this one this past week and have been thrilled with it. My isp speed is 1gbps and at a range of roughly 60 feet and four walls, a steel shelf full of WiFi enabled 3D printers and my desk between my desktop and the router I’m seeing ~560mbps.

u/DuRazziK · 2 pointsr/buildmeapc

I'd recommend the Acer R240HY for 1080p 60fps gaming at around $100.

u/MexiGato · 1 pointr/buildmeapc

You can either go for high refresh rate monitors like;

Or a high resolution monitor like 1440p;;amp;th=1&amp;amp;linkCode=sl1&amp;amp;tag=highgroundgaming-20&amp;amp;linkId=9e6a91bf09bad93b34411f14bc906b85

The performance for 4k monitors are sub par compared to the gtx 1080, but its still doable.

Its all up to you though. I prefer high refresh rate, its a mind blowing experience. Just do a little research.

My brother has this pre built pc:

It can run VR. Not saying buy this but you can use it to compare

R9 270X 98 pounds, Webuy

i5 4460 105 pounds, Webuy

Asrock H97M 64 pounds, Amazon

WD Blue 1tb 7200RPM 36 pounds, Amazon

303 pounds total. If you order a used drive from Webuy you're about as likely to get a 5400rpm drive from a crappy brand with 100,000 spin hours on it as a good desktop drive. A brand new 7200rpm drive from a reputable manufacturer is 36 pounds, a used one is silly.

u/taggss · 1 pointr/buildmeapc

Actually, my power supply is this:;amp;th=1
The 1070 should be fine, right?

u/netherbawss235 · 1 pointr/buildmeapc

Getting enough RAM and a decent GPU right now with the current market is basically impossible. Builds below $1000 will need corners to be cut if you are custom building.

There’s 2 factors why I think you could get a prebuilt for now.

  1. You’re knew to PC’s and it might be difficult to assemble it without misplacing, breaking, or doing something in general wrong.

  2. You can get better bang for your buck right now.

    Here’s the best I could find, includes an I7, RX 580, and 8GB’s of RAM coming at $780

    It also has an included keyboard and mouse, but no monitor.

    Id recommend getting a basic 1080p 60hz monitor for now Like this until later.
u/audqyee · 1 pointr/buildmeapc

You may want to take a look at this. I will be attempting my first build based on the list from the link below. Roughly $1k.. + you may want to just buy a network card in addition to the ones below, roughly $30-40. Looking at the motherboard, you still have an extra port for the network card after the GTX 1070 installation.

Monitor (had a hard time deciding going for a 1440p monitor vs a 1080p, in the end I chose this due to the specs for gaming; and that 1080p on a 24" still looks nice... and it's cheaper);amp;psc=1

Network Card:;amp;psc=1

u/Derp-O-copter · 1 pointr/buildmeapc

It does not. But, you can get a pcie wifi dongle for like $15. like this

EDIT: I accidentally said USB instead of pcie, but you can also get a usb wifi thing here

u/DonnyJoseph0 · 2 pointsr/buildmeapc

Tight budget, best option is to build off a decent used system.

i5-4690, 32GB DDR3 (!?), 320GB HDD; $154ish

MSI GTX 1050 Ti Low Profile; $180

Kingston A400 240GB SSD; $29

The i5-4690's single core performance comes close to a Ryzen 5 2600, which should contribute to a decent FPS on 1080p. Combined with the GTX 1050 Ti you should be rocking 60 FPS minimum on Medium 1080p, if not better.

The SSD is optional, but makes things so much snappier I couldn't recommend doing without it.

u/IndifferentPotatoAim · 1 pointr/buildmeapc

Your build is mostly good, but you could get a faster RAM for around the same price as 2133Mhz is poor value for a Z version motherboard.

Also, your setup with GTX 1080 is a huge overkill for an 1080p 144hz monitor. Either cut the price and go for the GTX 1070, or upgrade your monitor to a 1440p 144hz one, so you could fully utilize your build.

u/Javild · 1 pointr/buildmeapc

you can get this cheap wifi card, you just install it in a pcle slot

u/Ellionious · 1 pointr/buildmeapc

Thoughts on this one? 155 hz, 1440 p, with FreeSync.

u/FoBak · 1 pointr/buildmeapc

Currently have this

u/gero_martz · 1 pointr/buildmeapc

Also there isn’t any notable difference between 3000MHz ram and 3200MHz. So i would choose the cheaper option.

here i have some recommendations,
Corsair LPX
Crucial Balistix

u/twiction · 1 pointr/buildmeapc

would this be compatible with my monitor? Freesync 144hz AOC. I think it is since the CPU is AMD but i just wanna double check.

u/whunt1001 · 1 pointr/buildmeapc pre built, comes with keyboard and mouse. Actually comparing this to a custom build myself atm.

u/alexhorlbogen · 1 pointr/buildmeapc

For purposes of this discuss let’s not include peripherals in the budget.

Here’s my current monitor. I know this build/computer will outwork my monitor.
Can you suggest one?

u/mrreal71 · 1 pointr/buildmeapc

Will the RX 590 be compatible in price?
And did you mean this freesync monitor?

u/SoVerySick314159 · 1 pointr/buildmeapc

Computer's acting up. A team of scientists cant' solve the issue, and it's about a 5-6 year-old build. I've replaced several parts, can't fix it. I want to build a new machine that doesn't reboot 20 times a day of it's own accord, even from BIOS.

The answer to your question is right within my post. "I've had a LOT of issues with my current computer the past few months and thought I should have an upgrade path planned out if I can't get things in working order again."

How does the

compare to my i5-2500k?

u/Bman854 · 3 pointsr/buildmeapc

No but you could get a PcIE wifi card with while keeping it in your budget.

u/Slimymeninges · 1 pointr/buildmeapc

Thank you. Would it be wrong to instead get the Ryzen 7 2700x (;linkCode=ogi&amp;th=1&amp;psc=1) since it does come already with a game I'm planning to buy and would be $75 more minus the ~$40-60 it usually costs.

u/Daedus · 1 pointr/buildmeapc


Power Supply:;amp;pldnSite=1

No worries about the PSU having less wattage, 650w was overkill, but the deal was so good I included it anyway on the grounds that you might switch to a more power hungry card later.

Couldn't quite navigate properly since search results only allowed Japanese characters, so I couldn't find appropriate choices for a monitor or a good WiFi adapter (which is necessary if you want to use WiFi). I'm also not familiar with Japanese PSUs, so I didn't recommend one. I wouldn't want to suggest something low quality, since bad PSUs can ruin your entire system.

Also, the 'English' version of the website always reverted back to the Japanese version after you left that specific link, so I couldn't quite use the sorting function so there can be some components I chose that are overpriced. I would really recommend double checking the parts I chose on Amazon to see if there are cheaper alternatives.

If the build is way over budget, I would suggest you get a cheaper R9 290 instead.
