Description

My first PC build budget under $500 . Before this,Im using old Acer 2014 but right now its broken. I just can take HDD from my notebook. So I decided to make my own pc with budget $500 :P.

  • Intel Core i3-8100 (3.6Ghz 4core) :- This time I try compare with r3 2200g vs i3 8100. what i can see i3 8100 more fps than r3 2200g even AMD can OC until 4Ghz with great APU Vega 8. After that, someone offer me cheap i3 8100 cause last stock. So he's wanna clear all stock and i got $90.

  • Asrock H310M-HDV :- First, i wanna buy Gigabyte H310m-S2 but recently no stock, Then i forced myself to buy Asrock. Its pretty good actually $52.

  • Kingston 8gb 2666mhz :- Kingston brand so popular over here. Many recommend this brand and cheap. U can say its around $49

  • Sapphire RX570 Mini :- better than Nvidia Geforce 1050 Ti. Trust me and this not ex-mining gpu. I buy new one with 2yrs warranty ($129)

  • ThermalTake PowerLite 550w :- I just buy low budget psu (Tier6) cause i know this cpu dont ever use over 300w. So no problem. U can upgrade this psu if u buy RTX2080TI.

  • Kingston SSD + WD HDD :- I use HDD notebook cause i dont want waste money to buy another hdd. so i just put new SSD to run smoothly with Windows 10 Pro. Ya i know its slow 5400rpm but still can handle movie 1080p and gaming only slow on loading.

looks good overall, but I would highly recommend flipping over the back fan to exhaust for the sake of better thermals and less dust.

dont know about that. If flpping over back fan, isnt less air flow coming into casing?

Total throughput matters more than just how much is going in. If it were me I'd run both the top and back fans in exhaust- you would essentially turn the case into a wind tunnel that can draw a lot of air through.

tq for info. i will flip back fan. i think you are right since they run both intake xD.

This. I would recommend 2 intake and 1 exhaust. In this case, I think the 2 front being intakes and the 2 rear being exhaust would work. Or, have the top one an intake as well, so 3 in, 1 out.

ok thanks for info. i finally figured out. i put all intake xD. no one of them exhaust

Personally I would have gone with AMD ryzen because it is easier to overclock on a budget. Still a great budget build! I assume it is for gaming? If it is how well does it do beacuse I am also trying to do a under £500 build?

Ya its for gaming. I just try a few game. if u want $400 go with r3 2200g,rx570/1050ti,8gb @ r5 2400g 8gbx2 . if $300 r3 2200g,8gb(4x2). GTA5 - very high 80fps Pubg lite - Ultra setting 200fps Pubg PC - High 70-85fps Fornite - mix high epic 80-130fps AC Odyssey - high 40fps(100%cpu use) better go with i5/i7 or ryzen. Shadow Tomb Raider - high 16x 55-60fps * All tested 1080p. Use Vsync for smooth gameplay and better tempurate.

A nice budget build, but I'd recommend prioritizing another RAM stick as your first upgrade. Dual-channel RAM often has a significant effect on performance - not quite as significant with Intel as with Ryzen CPUs, but it is still worth having Dual-channel RAM for Intel builds.

ya im looking for that too for next month. But i want buy 16gb. Some people say good and some not. my target 24gb cause i dont want change mobo. haha

If you are going to upgrade the RAM, simply buy another 8 gb stick (of the same speed and timings, and if possible, even the same model) to add up to 16 gb. 16 gb is plenty (I never use more than 7.5 gb even with games @1080p, discord, and chrome open at the same time), and anything above 16 gb is overkill at the moment in a system purely for gaming. I wouldn't recommend 24 gb because only 8 gb of the 16 gb stick you would get with the 8 you already have would be utilizing dual channel capabilities. It's kind of hard to explain, but it's better to have 2 sticks of the same memory capacity. This is the same reason that 12 gb wasn't ideal nor recommended in the time right between when 8 gb was standard and when 16 gb came to be adopted as the standard for mid to high-end systems.

Sounds like a good plan! Have fun with your new build!

What kind of case is that? Looks kinda like a boombox from the front and I love it.

Looks like one of GearBest's Chinese Segotep cases.

Segotep Halo 6 Mini. I search link in Amazon but dont exist. Maybe you can google it :)

Not bad, repeating what others have said: flip rear fan to exhaust air instead of intake.

Also, not a bad budget build, i would have recommended dual channel memory but since the i3 doesnt get affected much i wont say much.

edit: loose hard drive just chillin there really bothers OCD but hey, you do you

ya i already change rear fan to exhaust fan. i will buy new ram on April but i want buy 16gb. So make it 24gb. About this cpu i just go cheap from IT Store cause last stock, so i just take it. But sad, ryzen 3000 still 4core r3 3300. I was hoping 6core. hahaha, i dont have OCD bro. dont worry xD

Just know that when you are doing an 8gb and 16gb stick, I don’t believe you can run them in dual channel, which may affect your performance in some games. The i3 doesn’t need this much, I would say 16 is enough anyways.

They say can run with same speed or lower. maybe 24gb too much.
