Question Low power system with gpu 400-500 USD budget.


Dec 17, 2012
Trying to figure out what would be better for a low power system with a video card.

The budget is like $400-500.

I was thinking about using the 2200g or the current gen i3 for the cpu.

Then an ITX board

Some Small ITX case

Only gonna us a 240GB SSD, I don't think that I need anything higher for the few games that will be installed on this system.

For the ram I would prefer 8-16GB depending on what the budget allows.

Then for the gpu I'm not really sure. I know I could just get a gtx 1050 ti, but I heard the rx 480 is super cheap and doesn't take to much power.

If people could put together a few builds around my idea that would be great.

*You could save some money by buying a used RX 580, then you could get a better CPU like the Ryzen 5 1600 for $119.
