  1. one of the stupidest and not cjeap builds too!! i think thst builds with r3 2200g are cheaper and better in same time or even r5 2400g fits in this budget

  2. Intel seems not to be listening to public opinion on their crappy 20+ year old poorly designed cpu cooler. You would think that they would follow suit on AMD

  3. Wow the comments just shitting on this build has anyone thought this could be a PC tutorial for those starting out im using a 4560 its what's needed for my day to day

  4. Ha i was discussing this the other day that you're still cheaper and are having higher performance on a ultra low budget going over a 2(2,4)00g with any P 46** paired up with a gt(x) 1030, 1050 (ti) depending on ur ultra low budget. AMD needs to cut even more in their APU, unless you wanna reach for a family allround workhorse/game/video pc cause that'll do. They both come in the same price classes on a full build.

  5. If i had only 4GB RAM i would install Linux and use it to play esports since all most played games on esports (besides overwatch) Run on Linux nativelly, because Many desktop environments use low amounts of ram

  6. I really want to see a tech tuber do a cheap Power supply round up, because that type of video is basically untouched by any YouTuber and would really help us budget builders out at the expensive of your hardware ;]

  7. The worst pick for parts except the cpu, mb, storage. You can find 1030’s much closer to 100 and can find much cheaper cases and power supplies. If you do those things you can get 8 gigabiyes of ram or a gtx 1050, or both if you are a really good deal hunter/ wait and ride the downward gpu price train.

  8. g4560 was awesome because i3's were also 2c4t, these pentiums tho are yawn because you can pick up a 4c4c i3 8100 for 110 bucks.

  9. Good video Timmy Joe! Even though you lost a camera, it's awesome to see a one man operation attempt more than one angle. Do you do your own editing? Would love to see a studio setup tour.

  10. Ryzen apu's are certainly a better option, but it's nice to see content for both sides. "coming from an amd fan"

  11. Id use it for a 60hz build.. its good for that much or even more depending on the game, that being said id get a used quad core i5 2400 that will be faster than this thing.

  12. I THINK 4 GB OF RAM IS OBSOLETE AND SHOULD NOT BE INCLUDED INTO ANY GAMING SYSTEM UNLESS U LIKE LAG/STUTTER .. 8 GB SHOULD BE MINIMUM AND IF U CANT SAVE UP ENOUGH THEN DONT BOTHER

  13. you just answered your own question as to why people are not talking about the Intel G5400, it's not overclockable and while being a dual core cpu with hyperthreading, that might not mean as much when it comes to gaming with 2018 games.

  14. I3-8100, Gigabyte Z370P, 8gb ballistix ram, 450 watt evga bronze power supply, 500gb ssd comes to about 400 with tax at micro center. Add the case you picked as it's a good value with 3 fans included and you are at 470. So 470 without a graphics card. Used gtx 750 ti cards sell for 60 on ebay and are slightly better than the gtx 1030. So 530 total and a much better pc with double the ram, ssd, an i3 8 series, and a full size atx motherboard that you can upgrade the cpu in the future and have room for 4 sticks of ram.
