Hi guys, I am looking into buying a computer to build. My budget is about 300$ but I would prefer to build one for 200$ or less so I can still have some money leftover for buying music production gear. The computer needs to be able to run the music production software Maschine and needs to be able to hold my AMD Radeon 460 Windforce OC 4gb edition gpu (no supplemental power required) ~75 watt card )) I dont really know what other processors will work in comparison to the i5 and 64 bit that the maschine program needs to run. I hear AMD Athlon processors are still good and cheap so if there is anything that will be better than an i5 2400 at around 60$ price that keeps the mobo relatively cheap and leaves room for lots of cheap RAM, that would be great. Please post any ideas you have and lets discuss this!!

So if it was me this is what i would build:

cpu: amd athlon 3000g
Gpu: your spare gpu
Ram: 8gb 3000mhz
Mbo: b450 asrock pro4
Psu: thermaltake 500w smart
Storage: 1TB HDD
case: fractal design focus g, maybe (mini) ~ price
(Included cooler)

Should be just under 300 i think, go list this or something alike
:)

Thanks alot! Will I have to worry about flashing the bios or anything and you said the case is mini... Will the GPU still fit in a mini case?

Hi Timmy

You will not have to flash the bios at all, it will work just fine.
The GPU will definitely fit in the mini case, but they're usually around the same price, so just pick whichever is cheaper.
