Hello, I want to build a PC on a tight budget. It won't be for gaming because I know I can't have a gaming PC with this budget. I chose these parts for my build https://pcpartpicker.com/list/jJ7Vyf. I think it is good enough but which is the best build in order to get the best possible out of this budget.

Thank you for your time.

PS. I really don't want an AMD build, I prefer Intel in everything.

Your suggested build seems nice for the money! However, I would advice getting not 1, but 2 RAM sticks of Crucial 4GB (1 x 4GB) DDR4-2133 Memory. The total money this way amounts to $256.55 or €241, which is still €9 below your budget.

Good luck! :)

FWIW:  Seems to me that you might also consider one of the multiple refurbs becoming available daily at Amazon and other reputable sellers.  I was looking at several i5 systems now available, just to take a look.  You need to also understand the difference between "refurbished" as opposed to "used".

 

Considering the CPU, the RAM, and the lack of expenditure for an O/S...I believe such systems warrant a little investigation by those value-conscious prospective buyers/builders.

You need to also understand the difference between "refurbished" as opposed to "used".

Care to elaborate? I never quite understood the difference between the 2 terms. Does 'used' mean a device which has been in possession of some random person, whereas 'refurbished' - a device which has been in possession of some random person, then returned to the manufacturer, fixed to near-new condition by the manufacturer and then on sale by the manufactuter as 'refurbished', usually even with some time-frame guarantee by the manufacturer?

TL;DR: 'Used' means used; 'refurbished' means top-tier in terms of quality 'used'?:)

You can easily get 4GB more RAM in this money. Or even a 16GB kit. Also, do not go for SSD. get a 500GB HD instead (as you are already getting the 4GB extra RAM)

Personally I would ditch the Celeron, gather a bit more money and go for the Intel Pentium G4560 as its actually quite amazing for being a dual core cpu and nearly making the intel i3 line a total joke.

Its capacity to do hyper threading is a great advantage over its celeron counterpart and its actually quite decent gaming performance for such a cheap CPU if in the future you do want to turn this into a gaming rig in the future (which is incredibly possible for the Pentium)

Also ditch the SSD, sure SSD's are fast but the cost right now are high again for low space, I am glad I got my 240 GB SSD when I did or I would be paying over $100 for it

 And did you find some super-deal combo the above combination of parts for only 250 Euros, the budget slated for this non-gaming rig?

 

(Since the GTX1060 on it's own runs more than the total budget, I'd be skeptical here...) :)
