What is the best price/performance build right now?
>>
A thinkpad X220.
>>
A Thinkpad TBLAZEIT :^)
>>
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
GPU
>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

It's that what you call being poor and stupid.
>>
>>52569715
it's clearly the best thing you'll make for the money
>>
>>52569659
is this really it?
>>
>>52570397
if you absolutely have to buy a new CPU and motherboard, yes. A 3 year old used i5 and motherboard will do a better job than the AMD though.
>>
>>52569551
The one they pay you the most to haul away.
>>
Used T420, and an external 750.
Atleast for me, ATM. Can get a decent 8 thread cpue t420, and a 750 ti for $140 CAD
>>
>>52570630
haha no

I told you guys, I am god.

Could you direct me to this case?

Sure, "God"

T420 or X220 depending on if you want 12" or 14"
>>
>>52570819
Post your PCpartpicker first. Not gonna do your job to get an actual price for your shitty build.
>>
>>52569551
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

>>52570999

https://www.tekboost.com/hp-z600-2x-e5520-4c-2-27ghz-4gb-160gb-10k-dual-dvi-650w/

This build. Dual Xeon E5520s, 650W PSU, 4GB RAM, 4 PCIe slots, 9 USB ports. $369

>>52571403
muh xeons
>4gb ram
ahaah

>>52571403
That's pretty lousy.

>>
>>52571412
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.

>>52571463
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.
>>
Technically the best deal is a free computer. Infinite price/performance! Companies are even getting rid of early core i5 machines now.
>>
>>52571539
Used RAM is cheap and a new hard drive is better than an old one. A $40 new 200MB/s 1TB is better than paying the $30 upgrade tax for an old 80MB/s 160GB.
