We all do it. We all go around looking at sites like Rebel Tech and Evetech and putting together PC build we would love to have. We all have opinions about what hardware would make the best of any build.
So let’s have a challenge; who can put together the best build under a particular budget.
The challenge is simple: Put together the best possible PC you think you can within a budget of R10000. You can use any site, but your PC must have all the main components of a normal PC; CPU, GPU, Mobo, RAM, HDD, and Case.
Just a fun little challenge for those with some time to kill, or those who would like to comment on the builds of others. Perhaps this thread can serve as a guide for gamers looking for build ideas.
Hmm, you’re right. WOuld make a big difference in overall performance of the machine. And if you compromise by only getting a 250GB, should fit in budget no problem. Will see if I can put something else in place tonight.
I also compiled a build now, and I compiled it with gaming as the primary use (it wasn’t stated).
For that reason, I went with the i3 8100 which is better for gaming, however the problem is the expensive Z370 motherboards. There are no budget chipsets out for Coffee Lake though and the cheapest Z370 board is almost R1000 more expensive than an AM4 one.
This means the i3 8100 falls out of contention and you either have to go intel i3 7xxx or Ryzen, which makes Ryzen the clear choice for me.
However, for such a budget system, primarily for gaming, I don’t think the 1500X is required. So here is the build I came up with. If you drop down to a Ryzen 1300X, you can go up to a 1050Ti, which has a nice performance bump from the normal 1050.
Note: this build only works if I use @Pr0fPyr0’s very cheap M.2 SSD (which I couldn’t find anywhere).
ya I was thinking about the 1050ti swap out with the cou as well, need to find a benchmark for that m.2 wonder how they are, finding that Cooler Master MasterBox Lite 3.1, made me look at reviews and its pretty sweet only thing is its not glass its acrylic, still looks good
