For $500 buying used is easily your best bet if you want to push frames. When you're ready to actually buy I can definitely help guide you in the right direction. Due to the nature of buying used there is no surefire partlist I can throw together. But given the prices for used RX 470s on eBay I threw together this list. Its pretty rough but it'll definitely kick ***.

Looks like the H81 does support overclocking

Either way it's a good bet

I'd use the media creation and have Windows 10 install on a spare USB. Then just use the product key from the disc.

$200 for that is a great deal imo

I don't know if you can overclock the 4690K on that H81 so at the very worst case scenario you'd be stuck at stock clocks. The 212 Evo is a great cooler however.

I'd go for something like this. Also I'd like to piggyback on what Potatogamer said about the 1050 not being up to the bid on high settings at 1080p.

I’d browse reviews and YouTube. The only real experience with case buying are $30 budget oriented cases. The P350X and H500 seem like good cases though.

At that point, especially with the savings I think the 2700 is an even better bet.

I honestly have no idea on that matter. I’d stress performance over aesthetics on a budget build.

It looks like an flip pc. If you’re okay with upgrading the GPU down the road it’ll be a great pc. The 750ti is still a fairly capable card for what it is though. For $250 I’d say that’s a pretty good deal all and all. What motherboard/cooler is on it though?

I’d drop the 212, get a single 1tb SSD, cheaper ram, and get a cheaper mobo like the ASRock Pro4. I’m not up to date on the new GPUs so I left it as is.

I love the new layout, the spacing is kinda weird along with the fact that user completed builds are now alphabetized instead of allowing the user to change the order manually. Also the Copyright PCPP thing reads 2017, I'm not sure if that is intentional or not.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Best inexpensive laptop"

  • 11 months ago

If I was looking for something cheap and works I'd get something like a Dell Inspiron 15 3567 for $280, less if you have a refurb unit from Microcenter. Then replace the HDD with a 120 or 240GB Crucial B500 drive for around $30 and reinstall Windows, the license key will transfer. I did something similar to that with a client PC and it worked great.... One thing to note is that this laptop has a 1366x768 display. It's not the best but it'll work, I'd go for a 1080p laptop if budget was less of a concern.

  1. What exactly is the issue?
  2. Don't buy an AM3+ board at retail
  3. If you want go with a more modern platform you'd also need new RAM.

Yep! For $25 I couldn't help but buy two. The X2 and the H17 are good flip options. I've built in both cases and the H17 is honestly the slightly better case.

Looks like a solid build, I'd say you could probably get around $700 for it on a good day. I didn't price it out so take that with a grain of salt. However, selling used parts like that at retail or marking it up is a good way to not sell your PC.
