Really nice budget build! Thats a lot of storage for a $300 budget build and for everyday use like Word 2016 and Excel 2016 this would do just fine! Slap a 750 ti on there and you have yourself a quite powerfull and cheap gaming PC!

Yes 750ti is a good option for the budget I'm trying to achieve ( $400 all around PC).

Yeah, but the better choice is to get a 1050ti. With the I3-6100 and the 1050ti, you'll be able to play games like Battlefield 1 on ultra settings.

I am not sure on the PSU. I never like to cheap out on the PSU as if it dies, there's a good chance it takes the whole PC with it.

Other than that, it's a nice and cheap build!

The PSU I have is not that bad. The model I have is little different than the one you see on the list. Had good reviews on Amazon and Newegg. https://www.amazon.com/Apevia-ATX-VS450W-450W-Power-Supply/dp/B01GUENTK

I used this PSU on my home HTPC about 6 months ago and I haven't had any problems. My machine run day and night... Maybe I'll get something like... Evga430W Thank you.

It's so easy to play games on ultra these days.

That's because the hardware to play on ultra is becoming cheaper. But it's still not easy.

If you can't quite afford the 1050ti then I would go with the regular 1050 before the 750ti, better driver and support for the future, slightly better performance all at the same price point. Great job by the way!

Thanks for the advice. I'm not a gaming person, but I need to add GPU to make this PC complete.

great pc, you should get a 1050ti, its a very good graphics card. if you can squeeze more money, an RX 470 is a great too.

I was thinking about 1050ti, let see how the price will be after the holidays...

I think for the build a 1050Ti would be the best as you will use that GPU well into your next CPU upgrade if you are only planning on 1080p and moderate settings.

I think 1050ti is the best fit for this machine (for now). Anyway the only game I'll ever play will be "Age Of Empires". I'm not a gamer :) My idea is to get i5 6600k when the price go down... It's always good to have a GPU, you never know.... Thanks.

AoE is great, but if that's all You're playing the 750Ti would be more than capable of handling it and you could save some money, unless you do rendering or whatever other GPU accelerated programs you would use.

It's an (all day - anything) PC, nothing special. I'm just trying to achieve a $400 mark for that. I think 1050 or 1050ti will be a better option, but I will wait ... I always find better prices after holidays. And this new GPU will have a better support for the near future. Thank you.

You should go for the 1050 over the 750ti, it also only gets ~10 less fps in games over the 1050ti. If you are going for the 1050ti, I reccomend an RX 470 for 149.99 on Newegg if comes with a free game to test it on or sell the key.

I see you said you're not a gaming person so this may be a silly question, but have you played any games on this and if so did you get fps around 60 ?

I haven't had a chance to play anything on this PC. I sold it a couple days after I build it. My guess is if you add a GTX1060 you will not have any problems to achieve 60fps on 1080p. i3 6100 can handle most new games because of 4 treats that the CPU has. You probably know that the game performance comes from a better GPU, and for what I hear around - 1060 6GB is a very good option for 1080p on the budget. I probably didn't answer your question the way you wanted, but I'm 99% sure that 1060 will do it (60fps+).

I think a better cpu for the money would have be the FX-6300 (6cores 3.5GHz(OC to 4.2Ghz) $80-$100) either way nice build.

You are probably right about that. I just like Intel better and in planning to update in year or so with i5 6600k ( when the price is more realistic). Maybe I can make a AMD build next time...just for fun. Thanks.

The i3 has higher single core performance and pretty well kills the fx 6300 in games, it can also be overclocked on a Z170 board using the BCLK.
