[PC] Maintenance is now complete. Thank you for your patience!

Building my First PC!

Hello!
It's my first time venturing into building a PC . I know nothing about building PC's but from what I've researched it seems that Intel Core i5 seems to be much better than the i3... that's about all I know! (-.-) I'm looking for something cheap but that will give me 60fps~ish . I want to know what good parts I should buy since Black Friday and Cyber Monday are approaching I want to spend less so I can get a monitor + keyboard etc.
My budget is around 500-600.
Also, include into the price the cost of Windows 10 / 8.1 !
Thank you very much! =)

    Due to the cost of Windows you'll sometimes be better off buying a pre-built desktop when it comes to low cost desktops.

    My recommandation is the following, if you want more performance in this price range, then you have to give up original windows, and go for a pirated one, if you don't wanna do that then you have to sacrifice performance in CPU or GPU area, in my opinion u should give up the windows for now and get the following, you can get original windows in the future without sacrificing the pc's performance now.

    -i5 6500 3,2ghz, quad core processor, a very good cpu for gaming
    -8Gb of ram ddr4, if you feel the need you can add anytime more, the motherboard allows it
    -Motherboard Chipset B150 , well-equiped,comes with 4 ram slots, 6 sata 3 ports.
    -1TB HDD from WD
    -DeepCool Kendoman case, a very decent case for this price, it comes with 5 pre-installed fans, giving the case a nice airflow
    -Power source from seasonic, 620w, certified bronze, more than enough to sustain your system, even if you would upgrade it in the future.
    -GTX 1050ti from msi, 4gb memory, this card is similar to GTX 960 in performance,but slighty better, i own the 960 and im able to play games like witcher 3 maxed out at 40fps on 1080p, so you get the idea.

    If you have any other questions feel free to pm me.
  • My advice, save up your money to buy better parts.

    This is pretty much what i have build myself not long ago, just got 8gig memory more and i can vouch for this being a decent gaming pc.
    Especially the motherboard in that price range was the only one with dd4 memory availiable (or atleast in my country).

    I see. In my city there's a micro center and I heard they can match the price from amazon so I'll probably try your built out. I don't need something super powerful just something that won't give me [filtered] 10fps on dungeons =_=. Ty all
