Description

Hello everyone,

This is my second build since 2011. The first build was the Editing PC for my work place that i built couple weeks ago. After I put that computer together I was inspired and wanted to build a new computer to play some of the new AAA titles and e sport titles. My goal was initially to build the computer on Intel G4560 and pair it with Nvidia gtx 1050ti. But after thinking a bit I stretched my budget and went with Intel G4620 and a Nvidia gtx 1060 6gb mini. I thought that slightly higher clock rate will help out a bit.

It took me a while to find all the parts on one website. For me its much easier to track the packages and not lose my parts or forget about them. It took me about an hour to put the computer together. Everything went smooth besides the problem with my case due to a damage that it received it came all bent had to take extra time to fix it(Fedex lol). As you notice my parts list does not have an HDD. I had an old laptop with a cracked screen that I took apart and used the HDD from there its a Barracuda 5400rpm 2.5". To my surprise the computer boots up within 20 sec and is very responsive. So I think for now ill stay with the HDD and later on add an SSD.

Overall when I finished installing all the drivers I ran some stress tests to make sure the system is stable and there is no issues with it. At first the GPU after Valley benchmark ran very hot the temperature was around 78c so I had to borrow one of 120mm coolers for my case from the Editing rig. After I installed it the temperatures drooped to 68c for the gpu under-load. First games that the system got tested on are: Evolve 2, Planet Side 2, Medal of Honor 2010. All maxed out at 1080p with about 60+ frames. Going to get more games on the system to see performance in more demanding games but for now Im very pleased. And yes I know that Intel g4620 is not the best pair for Nvidia gtx 1060 6gb but I had a good deal on 1060 so decided to go with that setup.

Thank you!

Another pentium that runs like an i3. Love those hyperthreading pentiums. Great build.

Thumbs up.

This is a great budget build! I'm guessing you plan on upgrading soon?

How does PS/2 run on this system?

Thank you!

Yes Im planing on upgrading to I5-7500 in a month or so. I have a friend that wants my Pentium for his computer. PS/2 runs smooth at 60 frames during huge battles i get into low 50s sometimes to 47 fps. But everything maxed out. Im very happy with the build overall.

I like your GPU selection but pairing with a Pentium means this pc won't last long in the gaming market considering gtx 1060 is probably the best bet the CPU has without bottlemecking. Nice build tho, like the budget.

I diasagree. Thats like saying anything less than an i5 wint last. This pentium has hyperthreading like the i3.

I'm just saying that this processor does have potential but not future proofed considering these parts will last around 3 years in the 1080 60 fps market

By that logic, are you saying you build with only the high end cpus and gpus of the latest generation available?

  • 35 months ago

Technically no. But this is relatively low end for this generation. Plus the parts that are used are from the latest gen available, but being so low end means investment required after around say 2-3 years for a better build. My only concern for such a well balanced build is that it won't last in the future considering how fast Games are becoming more powerful. But just to be clear, I have no problem with this build just discussing some issues it may have potentially.

Well time will tell. At the current price listed as $600 it would be easy to squeeze out more power later by upgrades either in complete redo, or staying with this generation and dropping in a higher power cpu. Thanks for the clarification. Glad you're not "nit picking" this fellas new build.

Doesnt matter since he can upgrade to a kabylake i5 or i7 whenever the time comes

  • 35 months ago

Yeah I guess, but then he'll be restricted to the current gen unless future intel CPUs start running on the same chipsets. Plus, games have gotten more rapidly demanding over the past 2 years and this isn't gonna stop till the end of time. But this is just my opinion

Great budget build mate. GTX 1060 and a Pentium G4620 is a great card and CPU for your price point.

Things to save money on next time:

Less ram 3gb version of 1060 (performs extremely similar for a lower price, at 1080p, 60hz it won't matter)

Things saved money could have gone towards:

A better CPU (i5-7400 / Ryzen 5 1400)

  • 35 months ago

I was planing on building on Ryzen but at the moment of purchase it came out over my budget and I just could not afford to spend more.

Thank you for the advice!

  • 35 months ago

Indeed, let me know if you are looking forward to upgrading to Ryzen, here are the things required, and they don't cost much!

Ryzen 5 1400- 170$ B350 motherboard - 80$ DDR4 ram - 60$

Total cost: 300 - 315$ It won't take too long to save, perhaps get some money during the holidays, it's a worthwhile upgrade, if you can make it to 400$, you might be able to get a Ryzen 5 6 core with that as well!

(If you want to overclock Ryzen, get the 1500x, or a after market cooler as the 1400's "stealth" cooler isn't powerful enough to handle most overclocks.

Budget build with a 1060... Hmm... Doesn't quite match up.

  • 35 months ago
  • 3 points

Ahaha yes I know more logical to go with 1050ti but Im planing on upgrading to a better CPU and at the moment that was my budget that I had so. For me its a budget build XD.

It's OK. I'm not sure why some of us think "budget" correlates small amount. It's really base upon a period of time for saving money until you reached that amount required for its intended plan. You have a good build that will get you started on what you do for now. Enjoy it.

Thanks for being supportive, El. Some of the commentors are not providing constructive criticisms, just criticisms. It's a good build and it's complete until next time.

  • 35 months ago

Of course, and no problem. Yes, I'm afraid some of us might be carried away with the criticisms, but forget to mention helpful feedback. I agree, it's a good build and leaves OP room for upgrade path when they think they need to.

I think there are a few younger folks who think they need to tell everyone else what they did wrong in their opinion. That thing about wisdom with age comes to mind. I was glad to see you posting on this builders presentation. Have a great weekend, El!

Yea I know G4560 3.5ghz but I decided to pay little more for a slight boost in performance. Yes Seasonic is a great brand but 450w is more than enough for me.

Thank you!
