what you guys think i should get? canadian dollars and taxes.
I would look at a Ryzen build. AMD stuff is a bit more cheaper I find, though it's been a while since I've priced out a build.
Only thing, you need a dedicated GPU with most AMD chips so that adds to the cost, but some of them do have video. Just need to check for that when picking one.
I just put this build together real quick:
CPU (3.7Ghz 4-core) : https://www.memoryexpress.com/Products/MX77407
Ram (2x8GB) : https://www.memoryexpress.com/Products/MX61227
SSD (500GB) : https://www.memoryexpress.com/Products/MX68857
Power Supply: https://www.memoryexpress.com/Products/MX72908
Comes up to $719.94 so I figure around $842.55 total after taxes and shipping (just a manual estimate, did not want to actually do a check out)
I would probably go with at least a 1TB ssd though so that will bump up the price. The one I picked is 500GB but going with 1TB brought the price past a grand.
I did not check compatibility or reviews of components so you'd want to double check that, but was just curious what I could get with under a grand.
no you're not.Trying to keep price down. Once you get into 8 core you're paying more than $200 for it. Though I did not spend much time, so it would maybe be possible to squeeze one in and keep it below 1k.
3700X is C$409. 3600 is C$270. 2700X is C$390 on amazon.cano you're not.
oh, I read that as more than 4 core, not 8 core only. ....I mean, I got my 2700X for $170 2 years ago...but US prices. still, that has to be doable in Canada now, no?
