That’s the first time I write this type of post, but I am really struggling with this right now. I need your help deciding. Only thing is I already have some parts to do just that laying around.
Parts are from a system from late 2015 early 2016, as follows. Don’t mind them in PC Part Picker list just the other parts. I just built something functional around them….
- Intel Core-i7 6800k CPU
- AsRock X99m Extrem4 Mobo
- 16GB DDR4 2666Mhz RAM
With that only parts missing are Low Profile CPU Cooler, GPU and a Slim HTPC mATX case with PSU. Click on Button below to see what this build “might” become if I decide to go with it. Key phrase here is, “BUDGET BUILD“
If you think I should go with this build saving money, I will need your help finding the right Low Profile GPU for it. I need one that preferably has 4GB GDDR5 memory. I honestly don’t care if it’s AMD or Nvidia based. I might be going to be running PS3 emulation so need more power. One in the list is just a placeholder for now… Also need one keeping price of final build low…
That said, I am also thinking of building a whole new Micro-ATX, Ryzen based system from scratch. I have created a list of parts on Amazon, which will cost me 4 times what the other system will at £400 approx. If I go with this one it will take me longer to get the parts as I currently cannot afford it. For parts I have chosen, click the red button below to check them on Amazon UK and/or PC Part Picker. Slight differences between the two…
Finally, should I go with this brand new build or stick to the much older Intel based one ? Use the poll below to vote and explain in comments below. Please I am in a bind here.
I thank you all for your input 😉
