is this pc any good?

Recommended Posts

Yo, sup.

I'm new to this frozen wasteland (Canada) and I'm getting a new rig after tossing my toaster away so if you have any tips/improvements on this I'd appreciate it. It's for pretty much everything (editing, 3d, schoolwork, etc.).

 

CPU: https://www.amazon.ca/Intel-BX80662I36100-i3-6100-Cache-Processor/dp/B015VPX2EO/

Mobo (might change for aesthetics): http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128863

GPU: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814202218

RAM: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820104532

SSD (on a budget and I have an external until I can afford to get another HDD or a larger SSD): http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820226831

PSU (should I get 550?): http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817438012

Case: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811146075

Heatsink: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA9H53GN5698

 

Total: $785 (ish) Any changes should be in this range or lower.

Completely forgot about that, but it also doesn't show canadian stores. Probably not worth shipping them here because of import tax. 

 

I was thinking about getting an fx 6300 or an athlon x4 880k but the Intel seemed to have better performance/reliability.

Editing and school work? You'll want more than 8GB of RAM, you'll want an i7 for the hyperthreading which leads to faster rendering times.

I have the FX-6300 and I never have had any issues with it. Of course, I don't do any sort of rendering.
