Now THAT is a good deal.

How do you like the Zotac mini? I've always been wary because for some reason I thought they had worse performance than regular sized cards despite not seeing any evidence for it. Always wanted to do a small, compact mini-ITX build.

Same performance stock but worse overclocking potential.

In synthetic benchmarking, you can overclock a 1070 to pretty close scores to a stock 1080 and if you overclock a 1080, you can see scores that don't even seem possible on a 1080.

No you can get a system with an i7 for 150


Bull, unless you're buying a first-gen system used for almost a decade, or something that 'fell off the back of a truck'. God, this place is a fount of misinformation/terrible advice.

You can build a PC in that price range with newer parts and better performance.


You're full of it, anything in that price range is going to be first-gen, used Core/AMD machines, both of which are rapidly approaching obsolescence for gaming.

Also a first gen i7 is still stronger than a FX 4300.

An LGA-1151 Pentium with an RX 550 is about the same price range as OP's machine. I did say in my post if he added an extra $100 he could have a much more powerful rig.

Comparing the Gt 730 to the RX 550 (massive boost):

4300 vs. Pentium G4560:
http://cpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/AMD-FX-4300-vs-Intel-Pentium-G4560/2879vs3892

Not as massive as the GPU but it's still a big difference and the newer mobo/chipset means there's an upgrade path. Again, I didn't say for the exact price of $200 he could build something better, but that price range. Sorry for the miscommunication.

I actually paid $175 for it. Not sure what it can run, but I'm probably just going to do some minor upgrades to it (adding 8 gigs, putting either a 1030 or 640).

Just really using this as a test for building, and if I actually want to pc game.

Don't bother upgrading the video card unless you're going for a 1050 bare minimum. The 1050 actually pairs pretty well with that CPU. It won't bottleneck much and it'll be able to run modern games at console quality or better if you turn down settings


Thank you for some info I can use.
Whoever beats my score I will give them a $10 PSN or Live card:

If it had maybe a 750 TI or better then maybe. I wouldn’t bother with it with a GTX 730.
