CPU - choose
>FX 6300 - upgrade to a 9590 like 5 years from now when it costs like $100, keep motherboard
>860K if you're dumb
>A8 7600 if you don't play games and don't want to fuck with a GPU or overclock
>GTX 950 or 750 TI if you get one on sale
>2x8gb crucial ballistix sport RAM because RAM doesn't matter
>re-use old HDD unless you can get an SSD for nothing
>that $30 corsair or EVGA PSU that everyone buys
>the $29 rosewill case with two fans
>any $50 motherboard
will total to $400 or under and be good for like 5 years with no upgrades
i am god
I have a lenovo g50 amd and so far i love it, its great for school and programming and is ok with gaming (15 fps on dying light and simulators, 30-50 fps elsewhere) great cooling and can be upgraded to have 16 gb of ram
Yeah 4GB of RAM, its a workstation but RAM is dirt cheap so that shouldn't really matter. The processors are what makes it a good deal. The cheapest Xeon is around $194. Two of those alone is 388 which is already pricier than that entire build. You literally can't build a computer with dual Xeons for that price.
I like this one a lot, the only issues I see are only one processor, 2GB of RAM and no hard drive. 2 Xeons isn't really necessary, but the necessary RAM and hard drive upgrades will increase the overall price, unless you already have those of course.
Rate? I though of this like an hour ago.
Dell Precision T5400 motherboard RW203 - $30
2x Xeon X5355 - $30 (2x Hyper212 EVO = $60)
Case already owned
Ram 8x2 DDR2 - $30-60
PSU Antec earthwatts 650 - $70-80
