So far the case and the PSU have arrived on the scene, along with an AMD A8 7600 APU I forgot I ordered which I might sell or I might hold on to. Already have 250GB SSD on me, hence lack of storage. I'm fuckin pumped, this seems like the perfect build after a month or so of constant research.

getting a 120$ case and that fucking garbage gt 740 is retarded. also thats way too much for a psu. if its a budget get a cheaper psu and case and get a beter graphics card, probably a 960. either way never go below a gtx x50 card from nvidia or a r7 x60 card from amd.

I have $500 and want to build a new computer. I very rarely play video games. What does /sqt/ think about this?

http://pcpartpicker.com/p/hY8dsY

I have a spare HDD but I feel like an SSD will help a lot. I have a 15" LCD but I feel like at least a 1080p monitor would be nice. Would I be better off with some AMD APU, or a 6/7 core AMD or is this the best I can build for $500 with a monitor for multi-tasking with the possible video render and rare video game?

I could also lower the price more by having a cheaper case.

>>
>>52638250
if you waited for a monitor, you could add a 750 ti or just put in an i5 6600K, but with a crappy motherboard, it'd seem like a waste to put in a K. I don't really know what i'm talking about though and will probably be BTFO by someone who does. that i3 is fine, but a 6600k for example would be crazy good. hell, if you could get an extra $100 and wait for a monitor, you could put in a fucking 4790K or 6700K.

>>
>>52638250
drop the ssd and use your hdd. an ssd is nice but it doesnt "Help" anything. the main thing it helps with for most people is boot time and load times for games, which you dont play.

if you buy a monitor off craigslist you can save more and maybe get the 6600k. if you wait and use that lcd you have or a tv or something you can go all the way up to a 6700

http://pcpartpicker.com/p/C3hqcf
>>
>>52638442
Then is either this:
http://pcpartpicker.com/p/69bjt6

Or this:
http://pcpartpicker.com/p/NKf8nQ

Over the budget? change the EVGA 650 G1 for a EVGA 500 B.
You will need the GTX 960 over the 750Ti.

The I5-4590 is nice to have over the I5-4460 for some bucks more but if it goes over the budget get the 4460.
You will want to drop the SSD too.

>>52638528

>>52638528
>>52638442
This is as most budget you can go and run the games good.
http://pcpartpicker.com/p/hdsJYJ

But instead doing this it would be a better idea to push it to get a I5-4690K and a Z97 motherboard.

>http://pcpartpicker.com/p/hY8dsY

I think that this is pretty good if you're not adding a GPU. If you were able to get a Z170 motherboard, you have a sweet upgrade path to a 6700K or whatever else Intel will release for LGA 1151 in the future. That $50 motherboard will be okay, but don't expect to overclock at all or put any other CPU in it. It's basically a waste of $50 because you'll have to chuck it after this i3 gets old, $180 GONE.

Take out the monitor, CPU and motherboard, you now have about $315 for just the CPU and motherboard. Put that into something like a $115 Z170 for that sweet upgrade path, and then add a i5-6500.

If you dropped the SSD, because you don't play games and load times really don't matter, and you don't really NEED an SSD and prices go down daily ANYWAY, you could have like $400 JUST for the CPU and motherboard. You still can't get a 6700K($400 right now), which is basically god-tier right now, but you could get a 4790K($300-$330 right now), which is basically the same CPU in terms of power consumption and scores. Put the other $75-$100 into the motherboard and fucking boom you have basically the fastest PC you can get as a non-gamer. no need to upgrade because you're already at the top.
>>
>>52638594
What? The RAM and mobo in that build are cheaper than the ones you're recommending. He also has a fucking R9 390 in there for the same price and you're recommending a GTX 960, a card about half as powerful. You're recommending putting a Hyper 212 EVO on a locked i5 when the stock cooler is more than adequate. You're clueless, basically.
>>
>>52638512
...doesn't an SSD literally make everything you do faster that is loaded from your storage drive AKA every application you use?

Here is your reply.
>>
>>52638645
they load faster, after they load into ram its up to your cpu.

ex. you can open open your video editor faster, but your renders will take the same amount of time

a better cpu on the other hand can significantly reduce render times, or increase fps in a game ect

lmao do this and put a 6700K/4790K in this thing for a sleeper PC. it'd be practically the fastest thing out for a long time. I'd be happier with it if you put in a better PSU, though.... the PSU is pretty important to helping your components last a long time. a 80+ GOLD PSU is like $80 and will last a long time. Don't bother with Platinum. The premium you pay for it is not worth it at all. Trust these guys too, don't put in an SSD if you have a spare HDD. The difference between a i3-6100 - i7-4790K/6700K will be WAY bigger than a 7200RPM HDD - decent SSD. You can add an SSD whever the fuck you want. If you're not gaymen, you want the absolute best CPU you can possibly get, which is a 4790K/6700K. the CPU IS the computer.

then hoiw is it bad for a locked i5? your reply suggested it was somehow not good for a locked chip, like it was a z97 or something. its a nicer board for a good price, whats the problem? change out the board and ram, fine. the build is still better.

I just have a lot to spend to do it. i'm thinking about a 4K monitor. considering a 6700K.
>>
>>52639468
well heres a good place to start then

http://pcpartpicker.com/p/Fgw6YJ

if you need that 4k monitor included in your budget, you'll obviously have to cut some stuff down. if you dont but dont "need" the 6700k and want the ability to actually play games at 4k, you can get an i5 system with a 980ti in your budget.

it really all depends on what you want in the end
>>
>>52639826
I'm considering going down to a 6600K(only like $20 more than a 4690K and it's skylake) or maybe going back to a haswell 4790K because it seems like the 6700K is the exact same speed. I don't know if it's worth it to take an i7 at all. It's really annoying me at this point.
>>
http://pcpartpicker.com/p/W3yXxr

Never built a PC before, any advice at all would be appreciated
>>
>>52640153
its honestly nice for video editing, but thats about it. Skylake is surprisingly better at gaming shown in a decent amount of benchmarks. Personally I said fuck it and bought a 4790k, mostly for the stock bump to 4hz. if you jump down to the 6600k you can get a 980ti for 1280$ so theres that.

HOWEVER since you arent desperate to game or do anything graphics intensive, you might actually be able to wait till the gtx 1080/70 or 1080ti come out. Maybe buy a 750ti in the mean time. food for thought
>>
>>52640196
its kind of unbalanced. the 4790 is more than you need for that 960.

Also, you're getting an overclockable chip. You should be getting a z97 board to at some point leverage that fact.

i'd suggest going down to an i5 and getting an r9 390. or even better get a skylake i5 and getting a 390.

I have $1250 but $515 is on an amazon card and $750 is on a best buy card This is the build I've come up with so far. My monitor is a POS 15" LCD so that's why I have that monitor on there.

Best Buy has a Gigabyte Z170 UD5 that is $180, same as amazon and seems pretty good but I'm not sure. it would free up my amazon card a bit and allow me to get other shit, because at this point I the only thing I can get at best buy is monitor and CPU. best buy doesn't have the largest selection.

AMD is going to have better multicore performance.

Also, ignore the compatibility notes; both the Graphics Card and CPU Cooler should have more than enough room in this case; for whatever reason, despite the generally good ratings, no one's bothered to flag compatibility notes for Rosewill cases.

This anon is generalizing too much but a r9 390 is a much better value than the 3.5gb turd nugget. shit the Msi one. But Nvidia is better at the super budget end (gtx 950 is nice if all you do is low-demand games like mobas and MMO's) and the high end at 980+. AMD rules the mid-range.

>>52655665
trust me anon. I've been looking at this shit for literally 24 hours now. I'm the OP of the skylake vs haswell thread and have been solely researching this shit the entire time since like midnight. from what i can sort of gather

haswell is pointless now, in general. they run hotter, don't cost much less, and actually aren't as fast, even if only by about 5%

if you want god-tier multi-core, go 5820K with a x99 motherboard. more worthwhile than going i7 6700k

6600k is god-tier for gaymen, especially if you overclock to like 4.5ghz

these chips are so powerful that worrying about muh futureproof is pointless. we'll have these builds for like 5-8 years before feeling the need to do anything new.

btw, I still haven't decided or bought anything yet so you shouldn't listen to me, ahahah
>>
>>52655725
so you put a shittier motherboard, case, and cooler, and then put all of that dosh into a better GPU?

I don't know if I like it. I sort of wanted all of that stuff to be quality so I don't have any surprises. I just keep thinking that if i'm getting a $250 CPU that the other components need to be top-tier, too. am I wrong? Would that 200R do the same job the Define R5 would?

>>52655725
That chip is for DDR4, and the PSU is way too much but he's right the card is way better.

all motherboards over 120$ are basically memes. and any air cooler over 50$ is super meme-tier. at that point you should be considering aio watercoolers. The motherboard is a good board. its not shittier, its just not overpriced. It will easily handle your average 4.4ghz OC with zero probleam ever.

also a $250 cpu isnt really that special. spending ridiculous amount of superfluous money and getting a shit gpu just doesnt make sense at your budget.
I dont into cases so i cant tell you, i just put a case as a place holder.
>>
>>52656274
Well yeah it really depends on what exactly the person plans to do the most. By default I would always recommend a better GPU than CPU for gaming, but for streaming you might be right.

Nah it's a fresh gaming rig. I can barely squeeze in a 6600K but worried about cheaping out on a motherboard.
Would a MSI Z170 mortar be good? That's the best micro atx I can afford.
As is there any significant difference between 2133 and 2400 ram?
>>
>>52656186
The difference between some gold and bronze level PSU ends up being like ~$2/month in actual cost.

Just get a well rated PSU for whatever your budget is, don't blinding get whatever is expensive or labeled as gold.
>>
>>52656428
By default you'd be fine with a 2133, but since you're onto the 6600K meaning you would overclock it, a 2400 is a must.

The motherboard is fine as far as I know.

funny thing is that the items I'm actually buying from best buy is the 5820k and the motherboard, both of which are actually matched with newegg/amazon automatically, which is why i'm considering this in the first place. for whatever reason, best buy is really good with their CPU prices but absymal and inflationary with everything else except for a couple of motherboards.

970 is best price/performance for all high-end cards. you pay double for a 980 ti, but you only get like almost 1/3rd higher score in benchmarks.

yeah the price to performance is terrible especially considering how close the 970 390 and 390x come to it. plus for the same price you can get an r9 fury or nano which are genuinely better(gameworks tomfoolery aside).

the 390 generally performs better than the 970 and sure 8 gigs of vram is overkill but 3.5 gb can actually be noticed. 390 is also a beast for crossfire.

I'll be taking the plunge in a couple of days. Gradually. Starting with the RAM.

Look at the Skylake Z170 motherboards. They're ~$30 cheaper than that AM3+, and you can spend that ~$30 on a better Intel CPU (one of the lower-end i5's)

My mother needs a desktop for email, excel work and skype. She works overseas most the time, and wants a designated desktop that she can rely on working when she's home catching up on tax, and business tasks (sometimes she's home for a 2 day window in a month, and wants to get invoices etc out to clients).

Currently I have her setup working off an (aging laptop) with a 24" monitor, keyboard and mouse,

She told me she wants a computer that she won't have to worry about upgrading for the next 5 years.

dunno if iGPU will deal with skype, so selected a cheapy GPU to chuck in for her.

I've offered to buy and build it for her. have I made dumb dumb choices or will this suit her needs? I essentially looked at what local stores were offering and tried to come up with something better at the same price point.

CPU: Intel Core i5-6600 3.3GHz Quad-Core Processor ($329.00 @ Scorptec)
Motherboard: ASRock H110M-HDV Micro ATX LGA1151 Motherboard ($94.00 @ IJK)
Memory: G.Skill Ripjaws V Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR4-2400 Memory ($75.00 @ IJK)
Storage: Kingston SSDNow V300 Series 60GB 2.5" Solid State Drive ($59.00 @ Centre Com)
Storage: Western Digital Caviar Green 1TB 3.5" 5400RPM Internal Hard Drive ($69.00 @ Umart)
Video Card: Asus Radeon R7 250 1GB Video Card ($79.00 @ CPL Online)
Case: Silverstone PS08B (Black) MicroATX Mid Tower Case ($45.00 @ Umart)
Power Supply: Corsair VS 350W ATX Power Supply ($48.00 @ CPL Online)
Total: $798.00

That's too much for her. It might even cause problems at customs. Do the smart thing and buy her a new laptop, preferably one around the same $800 price range.

If she absolutely needed a desktop (which I honestly doubt with her lifestyle), buy a mini-ITX motherboard with an integrated CPU (quad-core A4-5000 fits the bill and is cheaper than an AM1 + CPU while using less power), 8GB of DDR3-1600 RAM, a PNY or A-Data 120GB SSD for $40-45, a mini-ITX case with an integrated power supply (or a super-small one that only supports an external power brick), for around $300.
An iGPU is more than enough to run Skype, even with high resolution webcams. What you've built is seriously overkill for what she needs. Although she should be able to use it for more than 5 years, it's not really cost effective when you can upgrade the build in 4 years for less than $150.

What are you going to do with this pc? It might not even need the i7.

>>52661431
some video editing here or there, some porn games here or there, just a lot of random shit for the next 7 years, i think.
>>
>>52661458
oh hey its porn game bro.

at least be willing to upgrade your graphics card in like 3 years depending on if you want to play new games. imo if you want it for that long i'd kinda suggest going skylake if possible since you want to keep it for so long and haswell is already a few years old
>>
>>52661570
both 6600k and 6700k are sold out on best buy, where I'd have to buy my CPU. If I want to get a skylake now, I have to not buy a GPU at all for a while. this shit is confusing and I wish I just had all of the money on my amazon account, but over half of it is in shitty best buy.
>>
>>52661458
>>52661570
This. You'd be fine with a 6600k. Spend some money saved on a good monitor for maximum fap pleasure.
>>
>>52661648
the problem is that i'm not saving money with 6600k. i'm losing money because best buy has cheaper 1150 motherboards than 1151 motherboards. i hate this shit. i've been up for 28 hours now just trying to figure this shit out.
>>
>>52661677
So get the i5 version of the 1150. 4670k/4690k.


If you really want the i7 then go for it, I just would never get a 950 with a 5820k.

yeah. wait why are you telling me to get the i5 instead? I can afford a monitor and such with a 970 and 4790k. I can literally order it all right now. I'm sort of weirded out by the motherboards. I can't figure out which one to pick.

but yes I can get the 4790k, 16gb ram, gtx 970, ssd/monitor or whatever... I somehow made it all go together. I DID have a perfect 6600K build READY TO FUCING BUY but some fucker bought the last 6600k at the last fucking second before I was going to buy.

It doesn't really matter anymore.
>>
>>52661799
by the way, they have like 30 of these fucking lga 1150 z97 motherboards. I just picked those two to look at because they seem to sell highly on amazon, have good ratings, and the prices aren't inflated.

Corsair rm series psu's have zero fan mode. i've honestly never seen my fan spin other than when playing high end games.

msi coolers on gpu's are quiet as fuck and also have zero fan modes

there are passive cpu coolers that work but i cant think of any off hand. I think I remember the dark rock whatever being quiet as fuck
>>
>>52663185
over 60 at load is completely normal on air. intel cpu's shut down at 100c i think. if your cpu is constantly at above 60 then its probably gonna die sooner than most.
>>
>>52663453
>zero fan mode
as in the fan shuts off?
is there a way to conditionally turn the gpu on and off? and how can i tell what part is causing the most noise?
>>
>>52663517
yes. no fan unless it gets hot enough to.

Under normal use the fans wont turn on for either the psu or gpu.

>is there a way to conditionally turn the gpu on and off?

ummmm if you dont have a display plugged into it yes. but if its driving your display that doesnt really work.

>how can i tell what part is causing the most noise?

with your ears? unless you have small quality mics and want to measure decibels. there are programs that can monitor fan speeds, control fan speeds and also fan controllers for my system. whichever fan is fastest is probably the loudest

i would give you more info but Im not autistic about silence because i have tinnitus which makes silence torture.

I need to get a new extreme budget PC for a relative, considering the AMD 7850k or perhaps a skylake CPU for Igpu video editing etc. Rather then buying a shitty discrete GPU i think this is a better option as I can get a mother board with new chipset.

What is your opinion on these CPUs? I really want USB 3.1 but that means I have to go with a new motherboard that uses DDR4 which is generally really expensive.

My relative will probably use this build for 5-10 years which is why I want USB 3.1

No way, the R9 390 is a highly power consumption video card. You need to bump it up to at least 650W. I would recommend this one (it's also fully modular,so A+ for cable management) -- http://pcpartpicker.com/part/corsair-power-supply-rm750

For CPU Cooler, use either the Cooler Master Hyper 212 -- http://pcpartpicker.com/part/cooler-master-cpu-cooler-rr212e20pkr2
Or the Shadow Rock 2 --- http://pcpartpicker.com/part/be-quiet-cpu-cooler-bk013 -- altought I have heard that since it is too big it can block certain ram slots.

>>52668874
I just read up and a 550-600 should be fine, but thanks tho, I'm gonna go with that cooler, water cooling is a meme.
