I am currently in the market to build a budget gaming computer and was hoping for some help on which build I should do. I currently do not know if I should build Austin Evans boson 3.0 or Tech by Matt's $250 consle killer.
Thanks for the help!

I'd like to point out that the 2nd one uses used parts, so the price isn't guaranteed or even that the parts would be available to get in your area.
The Boson 3.0 would be what pretty much everyone would recommend.
Either that, or the Intel/Nvidia equivalent of a unlocked Pentium G3258 and a GTX 750ti. Then they'd ask you to OC the CPU.
The AMD built Boson 3.0 option of a Athlon X4 860K and the R7 360 being the better option of the two right now.
It has a arguably weaker quad core CPU compared to the dual core Pentium OCed, but despite being weaker. A lot of games won't even boot now off only two cores, and required four to boot. Meaning even if the Pentium is stronger, it won't matter since you can't use it. The R7 360 being better because..... the 750ti is only really held up by its driver support. The R7 is blatantly powerful. Where as driver support only goes so far for the 750ti. A lot of games run slightly faster with the 750ti, but after a certain point there isn't a whole lot drivers can do.You start seeing it perform at half the FPS of the R7 in more taxing games, and not even launching others. Basically the same problem the Pentium has.
99% of the time, I edit for type-o's and grammar. I'll note it if that's not the case.
I write near essays for most my responses, and then try to condense as best I can to the introduction of one. Less is more. Let me know if I post to much.
I do a lot of spacing for readability. Let me know if that makes my posts seem to big.
