How much is your time worth? How much are your components worth?

Less than 25 dollars?

u/G2geo94 · 7 pointsr/shittybattlestations

Oh shit I just realized you have a graphics card on top.

Dude, you can get a better full ATX case for $30, and probably less for the micro ATX you've likely got in there, simply by shopping on Amazon.

Edit: here's a cheap micro ATX case for dirt cheap on Amazon.

u/BigisDickus · 7 pointsr/gaming


Mother Board


8GB of RAM

1TB HDD for way more storage space then a console. You could drop the storage space to match a console and save a bit of money, but we won't do that.

PSU Cheaper/lower wattage for this build is possible, but it's better not to skimp

Disk drives are dying out and everything is going digital. Even consoles are showing massive growth in direct game purchases and downloads from PSN/XBL. But here it is if you want one.

Here's a few cases 1 2 3 4. Pick your case based on style, USB ports, whatever. All of those are 30 dollars or less and are mATX, meaning smaller form factor.

So now peripherals. Need a monitor? No you don't, plug it in to your TV. HDMI just like a console and consoles don't come with displays. You might have a monitor already.
Controller/input devices? PCs can use the old controllers you have laying around. Here's a keyboard and mouse recommendation anyway if you want one or don't already own them since most people own a computer for stuff outside gaming. That costs around half the price of an OEM console controller and KB+M is a more accurate input method. Controllers are a comfort thing and are best suited for driving games, but point and click with a high DPI sensor is much more intuitive and accurate than a controller with bad input filtering and clunky auto aim. Microsoft tried cross platform and keyboard and mouse destroyed gamepad/controller players. The only real cross platform right now is Rocket League because controllers are the better input method for driving so it's equal footing. But if you're playing Rocket League on PC, you load in faster. You'll be sitting on an empty field while you wait for other players to connect before the countdown and stuff starts, kinda neat. Also, that one I recommended has a button to change DPI/sensitivity on the fly, no need to bother with settings menus. Seamlessly go from sniping to roaming to driving. The keyboard is back lit and has a few color options.

Operating system? GNU/Linux is free and is getting more and more gaming support every day. It's not as hard as people make it out to be. Get a basic/user friendly distro like Ubuntu and all you really have to do is install. If you're a masochist, a developer, or a masochistic developer get a tougher distro like Gentoo. Funny thing as well, games with Linux support run better on Linux since it's such a great operating system on the software level. SteamOS is also free. Want Windows? Download the OS and put it on a disk or flash drive, install it on the new computer and enter the product key. Where do you get a product key? Don't buy it from a big box retail store for 100 bucks or likely more, you're getting gypped. You can buy 100% legit product keys online. r/microsoftsoftwareswap sells them for 20-25$ and the keys are straight from Microsoft

Also, all of those listings are from Amazon and are Amazon Prime eligible (for the other guy that replied to you that wants to complain about rebates/shipping/living next to a MicroCenter). You can find a lot of those parts cheaper and/or with free shipping. I recommend NewEgg. So you can do even better than the price I'm about to give you (which also means you can get better hardware for better performance):

Here's the itemized list with the prices:

$448.51 total for a PC that is massively better than current gen consoles. Drop the unnecessary DVD drive and the keyboard+mouse combo and the PC itself comes in at $402.93.

So... brand new parts from a large online retailer with a great support system. You can get even better deals on the parts if you checked other great online retailers like NewEgg. Ten years ago consoles absolutely made sense, but now leaps in hardware design have made better hardware cheaper and the tables have turned.

Does that "come close without cheating"?

Here's a few more kickers now that we have the hard price set:

AMD and Nvidia are about to launch a new line of GPUs, meaning current prices will drop (better performance at lower cost on that build I just gave you) and AMD is specifically focusing on lower/mid range market with higher performance and efficiency. It's going to be great for mainstream gaming rigs.

PC gaming is usually cheaper over time because Intel/Nvida/AMD don't charge development fees (they can't), neither can EVGA/ASUS or whoever makes the parts, neither can Microsoft. Steam takes a cut, but so do stores like GameStop. Stuff like that is why Steam can have massive sales consoles can only dream of and the developers can still profit from a sale. The only reason PC games are 60 dollars like their console equivalents is because it's the standard and they can "get away with it" (especially if you're Microsoft trying to expand Windows 10 and not alienate XBox), but they can make the same or more per sale at a lower cost.

PCs also have the largest game library of any platform and the massive free to play library that comes with it as well. And it's really free, not 'pay 50 a year for a subscription and get to play a game for a month' free

PC is, in theory, forever backwards compatible. Want to play CoD4? Don't shell out the money for Infinite Warfare, just install CoD4 and play on the servers PC still hosts. Games that came out upwards of 10 years ago can still be installed and run with no issue.

You don't have to double spend. No buying a console and a computer for work/school. Put your 300 dollar home computer and 400 dollar console prices together and you made a huge leap in budget to built a killer PC. You also get a much more versatile platform capable of running much more stuff and you get so much more control over your experience.

So, it's 4 in the morning over here, so my grammar and typing might be off, but here's what I got:

Amazon Mouse and keyboard combo - $15.00

Monitor $90

Reliable company and you can make use of dual-channels

Get a Western Digital hard drive, both a hair cheaper and more reliable.
AMD A8-7600 Quad-Core Get it on amazon or newegg, these sites have good return policies in case something happens. Superbiiz charges $8 for shipping so the cost is the same. $65.00

Graphics card - $57.99

There is a $10 rebate going on so you can get it for $47.99

Although this is a low-end graphics card, you can crossfire this with the APU to get better performance.


This allows for a dual graphics set up. - $49.99

Power Supply

A good supply - $37.99

Annnnnnnd a case - $31

The total cost is $415...

Edit: after looking at u/Wings0fLiberty 's post, the power supply ( I decided on a similar one) could be found for $26.99 on newegg, and a case for $24.99.

With these changes, the build would be withing budget.

u/pben95 · 3 pointsr/hardwareswap

Just about to post that. Like this

u/flyingchemist · 2 pointsr/buildapc

I found that going ~$30 above your limit drastically increases case quality and the looks of the case.
Heres what I found:
(This one has the best ratings and the best company)

u/dpayne16 · 2 pointsr/buildapc

I've built in a lot of different types of cases and I have to say that building in a cheap case has been pretty much just as easy as the expensive ones. It seems people exaggerate the performance/ease of building in fancy cases. Actually my first PC I built in the same one you picked out, it is a nice case!

This case is pretty much the cheapest one you can buy but I've built in it a few times already and it's worked great.

There's also this one which is in the same series just slightly different design and comes with two fans for around the same price.

This is a really interesting case and was more difficult to build in because it's a mini-itx, so you would have to find a mini-itx mobo to fit but if I remember correctly a standard atx PSU fits in this one. It's a really unique case and has one big fan for good cooling.

I have a favorite budget case but it is no longer available which is sad because it was an amazing case for the price. You can get it on ebay though, which is better than nothing!

You're going to need a bit bigger of a case. That APU is not going to perform well in games at all, and will struggle to run anything new. Does it absolutely need to fit in that tiny of a space? If so, your MBP is going to perform better. I just put mine next to the TV. A micro-ATX case should still be small enough for a backpack, at least. I used this for a build before, and thought it was excellent.

u/zoicyte · 2 pointsr/buildapc


The fact that it can even be done with stock parts (although granted it won't be aesthetically pleasing given the case restrictions), drives the point home, but that also limits profitability by the manufacturers, and like i said also makes them ugly, so it makes sense that companies like Valve are designing integrated-system boxes that can run smaller and trim the fat, thus making room for profit.

The other major sticking point is Windows, which is precisely why we have steamOS. I hope it catches on. Windows is a great general purpose OS, don't get me wrong, but it eats resources that could be used in gaming, and also would devourer $100 of your build unless you uh, have connections.

That being said, allow me to demonstrate:

PC Case & PSU: $50

CPU: i3-4150: $120

MOBO: MSI H81M-E33: $50

4GB Ram: Crucial: $36

WD Blue 1TB HDD: $60

MSI GT 640: $84

Grand total: $400

I'd bet that total it would smoke a ps4 or an xbone, too.

Edit: I can't math, I'm $16 over with the GT650. So here's a GT640 that makes it work. Still beats a console.

Edit 2: regarding lifespan, that's a silly restriction. First, I've gone through FOUR xboxes in 8 years. The last one has only lasted becuase i mainly switched to a PS3 in the last few (edit 3: Three PS3s, but IIRC only one was due to death, the first got sold). Having said that, I have every confidence the build above will last 8 years, provided it doesn't die in the first 3 months. PCs are like that. Either they croak right away because you did something wrong like not provide enough airflow or have a bad part, or they last forever, like the dell desktop I have sitting in my office with a Core 2 Duo from 2007, or the studio-pc my old band used to record our album that I'm SURE the singer never updated, and is running a Pentium 4 and Windows XP (he's of the if it ain't broke variety).

Besides, what someone else down the line said, if you're going to compare apples to apples, add xbox live/psn sub fees for 8 years in, that automatically adds another ~$400 to the cost of the machine. That's a HELL of a lot of headroom for upgrades. And this isn't even taking into account the general cheapness of games on PC vs. consoles. Games usually start $10 cheaper on PC and will tend to drop immediately after launch - if you can wait a day or a week, you can usually get most games for $35 or less, so figure an average of $25/game savings, lets say 4 games a year (hah), and we're talking ANOTHER $800 saved over the lifespan you are suggesting.

TLDR: PC is cheaper, but requires more commitment (duh). There is something to be said about the console's ease-of-use where even my 3-year-old son can figure out how to turn on the PS3 and watch a cartoon on Amazon or play Pacman, or turn on the Wii U and play NSMB or Pikmin 3.

Does bad airflow make your psu loud?
because i got this case and this psu and after putting my ear to every piece of my pc the psu is the only thig making noise
I think it's because my psu is top mounted

u/bobbygoin · 1 pointr/buildapc

Because the fact still remains that I despise the look of my case and will want to upgrade as soon as humanly possible. I...really don't know what I was thinking when I ordered it... Too late now though.

Here's the case I currently own.

Maybe it's not as bad I as I make it seem, but I want my gaming computer to LOOK like a gaming computer too, you know what I mean? That's why I chose the 300r.

u/aniel300 · 1 pointr/homelab

thank you for all the info, what im gonna do is wait until i ran out of space, i have a better understanding now, however can you explained me the difference between Xpenology and drivepool ?. also one thing i dont like about Xpenology, freenas, etc is that in order to create the pool hdds need to be formated, ohh and btw im also working on my "nvr" project for my home security system. it is currently running on main computer but i decided to move it into a standalone system since it takes lots of my computer resources, and because soon i will be moving out by myself.

this is the parts for my nvr project:

Hyper 212 LED because the 1700x doesn't come with a cooler, and wraith coolers go for around $30

Cheapest ATX B350 Board, 2400MHz ram, Case, and PSU, and RX570, and it is still $1220 before taxes, so yes the Dell is a good deal, because you can at least get an RX 570 this way, whereas to buy one yourself is very difficult because they are out of stock everywhere.

Edit: swap out the ATX case for a mATX case

u/stanciv · 1 pointr/buildmeapc

thank you.
Is it possible to use this case instead of the other case and can you show me the 500GB hard drive I really do not want the ssd and I can not stretch my budget

this is my case if that helps.

u/themediocrebritain · 1 pointr/buildapc
u/epictro11z · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

That console is pretty low end to be honest. The problems are the RAM (only 4GB), and the graphics for this says "Custom Nvidia Maxwell GTX CPU". I would go custom build, but you don't want to :(. There are very few good cheap prebuilt PC's

This is an ok prebuilt PC

Try pcpartpicker, ask on /r/buildapc. Custom built are really the way to go nowadays :).

Check this out:







It's a pretty decent build. Not great, but inside your price range. I know it's definitely better than that console.

If you want a decent gaming PC, check out the subreddit buildapc.

u/mbal28 · 1 pointr/buildapc

Actually I just ordered my last things and realized I'm $40 under budget, so I might return my crappy case and get a better one.
This is the one I have:
If you guys know a good micro ATX case that is kinda cheap, meant for gaming, then pls tell me

u/prejdts56 · 1 pointr/buildapc
u/usa4life · 1 pointr/buildmeapc

I'd lean towards an R9 390 around that price range, thinking something like this build partnered with most any MicroATX case (ie, this one should give you a lot of power for under around $820.

Pretty much the lowest you're gonna go unless you buy used parts is a

  • GTX 1050 2GB

  • Gigabyte Mobo (This is micro ATX, you're gonna have to fork over a little more if you want full ATX)

  • RAM - DDR3 8GB sticks, couldn't find a decent one in a quick search under 50 but I purchased mine for $35

  • PSU DO NOT skimp on the part of your computer that provides power to everything. This thing explodes? So does your computer.

  • here's a micro-atx case, for the motherboard i mentioned

  • and here is your ODD.

    want internet?
  • Here is an internet stick. Otherwise use ethernet with a handy cable.
