New Budget CPU

Recommended Posts

So i was wondering what is a good CPU to buy as of right now? Should i just wait for Ryzen 3 to be realeased, or should i got for something along the lines of a G4560 Pentium? Looking for a CPU, Mobo, and Ram(Preferably 2 sticks). Maybe around $200-300? I currently have a RX 460 GPU. Thanks a lot. (Psst I need a lot of help. Can't really decide right now between i3-6100, G4560, Ryzen 5 1400, or a somewhat decent i5) Thanks again

Hey Cubin,

I have built quite a few machines and what I've learned the most is that an older but known good piece of hardware is the best.

So, I wouldn't wait for the latest and greatest. That would be like signing up for beta software that may have a lot of bugs.

Since you are on a budget though, I would go for rating on the mobo and sort by lowest price on the CPU and RAM.

Mobo - https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813130971

CPU - https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA1UH3Z96229

RAM - https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231827

Let me know if you have any questions. I am either in my channel Titan is Wasted or chatting in Overwatch.

GLHF,

Titan

Would still like to see what his current build is to see if the socket he has is anything of current gen or any of his hardware can be re-used. I.E. Ram

i like the ram and mobo. But is the CPU well enough for the RX-460? And possibly a 480 when i upgrade later on in the year. Just want to know that way i can spend as little money as possible. (I'm asian xddd)

I have the AMD Vishera FX6300 6 core processor and it works well with my GTX 960 video card.  I game on it all the time and I haven't had issues in any of todays games. https://pcpartpicker.com/user/Wacko920/saved/#view=YwDBmG

I have three computer with one having the AMD Vishera FX4300 which is ok, but I only have a GTX 650Ti video card in it, so it's really not a good gamer.  My other two computers both have the AMD FX6300 6 core processors in them and they both game really well.  I don't have allot of money for building computers, so the AMD's seem to be just right for me.  Food for thought and the price is right :)

@Cubin, Thats's a good question, and I've got a site for you: http://gamesystemrequirements.com/gpu/radeon-rx-460.

These system requirements are what you should build around as far as the CPU goes. I would go with this https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA4RE5WA9471. The cool thing about this CPU is that it is marked down for being refurbished. What refurbished means, in this case, is that it was probably just stripped from another machine and setup for resale. It probably does not mean it failed and they straightened the pins or something and it suddenly started working.

Also, this CPU has a 2-year warranty for only $14. By then you could be ready for a new upgrade with a new warranty.

This build is mainly for if you have an end goal of a real monster machine.
