    Default Building a budget PC, need a look over

    I'm building a budget pc and decided to go with intel. Been a few yrs since i've looked at machines so just wanted to make sure i'm not missing anything and if anyone knows of a better part can suggest it.
    Processor - Intel Core i3-9100 3.6 GHz Quad-Core
    Motherboard - Gigabyte B365M DS3H Micro ATX LGA1151
    Memory - Crucial Ballistix Sport LT 8 GB (2 x 4 GB) DDR4-2666
    Power Supply - Corsair CX Series 450 Watt 80+ Bronze Certified Semi-Modular
    or EVGA 400 N1, 400W

    Already have Optical drive and hard drive and will be buying the case locally.

    Looks good so far. You'll be able to get things done with that. Only thing you'd need if you're going to play games on it is a good GPU and different PSU. But if it's just for work and day to day stuff it will do.
    Knowing the solution doesn't mean knowing the method. Yet answering correctly and regurgitation are considered "learning" and "knowledge".

    By cheaper u thinking AMD or an older processor? There's also a cheaper processor but it doesn't include graphics.

    One year later and it's all Ryzen... The 3200g is a great APU to build out on a budget
