Under $150 Budget Gaming 8 Core CPU, Motherboard & 16GB RAM

Hello every0ne!!

Today while going through the processors i came across somestuff which can be done and has been done by some  for fun…

Yes am talking about a 150$ super gaming pc with 8cores and 16gb ram yes its correct!!

coming to the build i would give a tip visit ebay or local stores which sale second hand parts as some of the parts that i mention wont be avalaible for the price i mentioned.

I wont be mentioning the exact prices for all but yes the approx pricing from ebay comes to be same if you get proper deals and find good deals!!

Processor

In this build we would using server processors you can google out xeon 5000 and get to know that some of the old onces have been outdated and are cheap but they have 4 cores and clock at 2.5ghz to 3.3ghz which is what we are intrested in now as we are focused on the server processors we get to know that we need a supporting motherboard.

Motherboard: Motherboard and processors in this build might take time to figure out and find great deals but yes it will be worthfull well coming to the point you need to check for a dual processor motherboard. You need to keep in mind that the motherboards are odd shaped and some dont fit in the normal cabinet that you get into market. Also the graphic card may not fit the slot due to irregular fitted capacitors.

Its expansion slots are very limited and sometimes may have only 1 pcie slot. So if you want more than 4 usb 2 port for soundcard,wifi,etc you need to have to check for alternatives some boards may have so I/O  shields but needs trial and error. Also need to figure out that the cooling fans may not have the proper pins.

Ram

any supporting ram can be used well most of the Intel server motherboards support ECC DDR2 or FBDIM DDR2 while both are available for cheap if you dont get the proper ram you may be stuck with wrong stuff in hand or extra. Also most ebay listings dont have proper details here is a tip:

You can identify the FBDIM  by the full heat spreader which was used to cool the advance memory buffer chip.

and the ECC rams are easy to identify.There is another issue to server ram compability even if you get the right type so select the ram part number which was on the (QVL) qualified vendors list or get the most generic thing you can and cross your fingers.

Graphics card

any ddr5 or ddr3 which ever is supported by the motherboard you get and support.

You can use zip ties for the CPU cooler and all stuff you can even make a CPU holder from any material.

These setup is tested on star wars battle front,etc.

Some of them have monitored these setups with GTX980 these cards were sometimes bottle necked with this CPU’s but they worked with lower settings.

Crisis3 run at MEDIUM , Shadow of Mordow run at High with motion blur off.. well it was with less frames though than any usual PC.

Tom raider run at same settings than any other normal PC.

Only thing is that there is no upgrade stuff in this pc its a one time investment also there is less scope for development also you cannot expect this to run with advance stuff with latest technology but this isnt a outdated stuff as a community is working dedicated on this systems.

Also some games are been worked on to work with this proccesors.

  3. After reading your blog post I browsed your website a bit and noticed you are not ranking nearly as well in Google as you could be. I possess a handful of blogs myself and I think you should take a look at speed rank seo, just search it on google. You will find its a very nice tool that can bring you a lot more visitors. Keep up the quality posts

  5. De hecho en España hay una compañía de color naranja muy famosa entre locutorios por no aplicar bloqueos de IMEI: Un teléfono bloqueado por una compañía roja azul funciona en la naranja una vez liberado. Prefiero ser yo que decida como, cuando y con que aplicación borro los datos remotamente a que esa funcionalidad me venga en un SO cerrado del que no sabes si ellos podrían hacerlo si tu consentimiento. Ademas samsung tiene un servicio online para bloquear el movil y borrar todos los datos remotamente. En otro caso acudiremos lo más pronto posible a su domicilio a reparar su electrodoméstico.
