Hey guys, I'm looking to build a new PC, I really liked the one I built 2 years ago based off yalls recommendations, however I felt it was time to get a new build as I sold it to a friend of mine. However I will not need a keyboard or mouse, but I will need monitors. The games I play would be rs6, gta5,h1z1, ark, call of duty and other such games. Looking to spend around $600-700 for the build itself, i have a $300 budget set aside for monitors. Any help would be appreciated and rep would be offered. . Thanks!

This is my budget list. I got it for around $450 (Used monitor) you can easily swing in a GPU and really be cooking!

I'd probably want to spend the extra $15 for the R5 2600 over the 1600 though. You can drop the Cryorig H7 and run the stock cooler to save $35 if you want. Phanteks Eclipse P400(S) TG is a good alternative case if you don't like the H500. Meshify C and Enthoo Pro M would be good alternatives, but they came up in price for some reason and are a little over-priced now IMO(at least in the US).

Thanks for the response!!! I noticed however the reviews on the GPU are really bad, looks like more than half the time it's a DOA on arrival unit, do you happen to have a different brand recommendation besides the powercolor?

You'll be spending a bit more for an 8GB RX 580 if you don't want the Powercolor one. Here's a pretty well priced 8GB 580;

You can get some for $240, but if you're going to spend a little extra for a better cooler, that XFX unit for $250 is a good value.

Just finding this while digging around. Had a question.

With this build:
[ Register or Signin to view external links. ]
I see that the mouse, the keyboard, and the monitor run 150 of the 438 total.

Would this build be decent say for EVE Online or Wow? Doesn't have to be flying graphics, but just run the games on basic instead of at no quality whatsoever

Read about cheap builds and have seem some get good review some bad. Seems odd to have a decent build for 300 bucks.

It would be about 300 for me I think is what I'm getting. I have a case, PSU, and harddrive, plus a monitor.

After dropping in a gpu it would still be around 300.
