Hello everyone,

I wanted some input regarding a PC build that would fit a $700 budget and would be used as a possible server/gaming pc (low to medium graphic settings).

Respectfully,

Mike T.

What country are you from?
Do you want RGB?
What size case are you looking for?
How much storage capacity do you need?
What is the resolution and refresh rate of your monitor?

No Case, I will be utilizing my old case
Storage 1-4TB HDD, or a decent SDD if possible.

I recommend using a new PSU. With this you can run your video and music on the HDD and OS/Games on the SSD.
 
Jeremy's build it pretty much spot on and the Intel SSD is a great find. However I would change a couple things even if the budget goes a little bit over, to avoid choosing a system based on the cheapest possible components:

  1. The Asrock B450 PRO4 motherboard is ATX as opposed to the above micro ATX board which is the ATX form factor for the Corsair 760T
  2. These Corsair LPX modules are of higher quality and have faster timings than the GeiL. That GeiL kit is literally the cheapest one on PC Partpicker so i'd advise against it.
