Looks really nice. It's out of the way but no to where it's not noticeable.

Computer is no longer on the floor. I have it on a stand right under the tv and beside the couch.

At the time i couldnt find the right prices to get anything more then the pentium. Does the i3 8100 have hyperthreading?

So, with this build and thr motherboard i have, upgrading to an i5 or even i7 later would work right? Also, as for the gpu, are there any suggestions that would be better dor the future if i do so cjoose to upgrade it? Something not to expensive, maybe comparable?

It is a low budget build but it wasn't just built to game. Gaming hete and there on it is what ill probably do. I really wantes to get parts to overclock but my budget would't work for that. I do really wish i got a modular psu though.

I figured it would be a way too either save money or put it towards another pc part. I think the case is the antec 300.

I JUST got the 6670 a couple days ago! Steam doesn't work so there really isn't any way for me to test it out...I have linux on this pc.

When I built my computer 4 years ago I wanted to use Windows but I didn't want to pay that much for it. I went with linux ubuntu. I love it, but you can't really game all that much on it. So I really don't game on it now. I would just get windows and call it good if you are wanting to game.

I might be able to build a slightly bigger pc, so I will be looking to find maybe a micro atx case. I don't really know yet though.

Indeed, but I am trying to make a starter htpc setup for right now. Again, I will upgrade in the future. I haven't done pc gaming but I do want to give it a try.

The i3 7350k really tickled​ my fancy but the price is way to high and it's an i3. When I get this built and use it for awhile I will upgrade.

I understand that. I just want to build this one first then eventually upgrade the cpu.

Yeah, I know I can't OC, which is fine for the time being. That's why I want to be able to upgrade in the future.

How is the RX460 compared to the 1050 you posted in the build?

Interesting. Yes, I want to pretty much play games on this build. It will probably go in the living room, hooked up to the tv.

Will this motherboard be able to fit maybe an i5 if I want to upgrade the cpu in the future?

Actually...After measuring the shelf where I am going to put it I am open to a cube pc case. I was looking at the coolermaster elite 110.

So...really...your build that you did for me is what I am looking for. Does the mother board have longevity?

Here is the build if anyone want's to take a stab at it. I went over my budget by $100-$200 but am okay as long as it provides me longevity and future upgrade ability with ease.

I am willing to change up most if not 90% of this build as long as the case stays. I like the case and feel I can make it happen.

I don't know of the rx 580/570 or 1060 will fit in the case I have chosen to build with.

Can the i5 7500 be overclocked?

I have been out of the computer building game for about 3 years now. My last build was in 2013 and I used all the wrong parts to be able to upgrade the computer for future use. I used an AMD chip on an FM2 board and it seems that AMD is using different boards now...

So with this ITX build, I want to fit as much computer power into a small case as I possibly can. The only hiccup I came up with was the graphics card. Honestly, I would like to have this build be on par if not better then an Xbox one or PS4.

I have been out of computer building for a couple years now, I still need a video card, what would be a good one to get that would work on this set up?

Not looking to game much. Just use steam for now. I will be getting a new PSU and CPU cooler in the future though. It has been decided.

I'm getting a ton of parts from a friend for a cheap used parts PC build. I'll prob OC on that first to try it out and when I get the hang of it I'll prob try OCing my PC.

I just want to try OC to see what is is like and to learn more. But I might do that with my other build for practice. Thanks.

I have a guy getting me another CPU that I will use in a computer to mess around with. I will probably take my PSU out and use it in that computer and buy a new psu for my comp.
