I am looking for a borderline budget desktop build that will possibly include the amd fx 8350. Building it for mostly gaming and possible streaming.So if possible can someone help with the motherboard and graphics card selection plus any other suggestion would be great. Im trying to stay generally in the 6 to 700s for this build. Thanks in advance.

amd fx 8350?

 

With Ryzen out you may want to rethink this.

How about this:

Its a bit above your budget but you get some great parts, and windows is included in the price there.

 

I cut out any additions like SSD's and more RAM

Due to the current "gold rush" on GPU's for crypto-currency mining, it's a pretty bad time to be building a gaming system.  Prices have gone through the roof as supplies dry up.  Just something to bear in mind.

Though I will agree with jonuk76 that right now is a bad time for PC buying

I mean yeah if you wanted to build now the 1050ti is not a bad card but you could do better if you wanted to wait.

Well we definitely need PCs for now even if we cant stream or anything we need something with basic capabilities. Right now im using an aweful stock cpu with an ssd and the geforce gtx 1060 and the cpu cant handle a damn thing. Besides that i have another mother board which was running my other cpu which was signifigantly better but the cpu is dead. Do you think it would be better to just build a pc with the componenst i have and then just adding a few parts? And when would be a good time to start building?

Well if you already have a GPU great as you will be able to transfer that over :D

No one said the hardware you have in your current machine has to stay in it after all.

What else do you have in your rig?

You said SSD so thats good too.

I could cut out the GPU in my PCpartpicker list and substitute another SSD even :D

 

Here I edited it, same link though:

Your current computer can go GPU free if it has a APU

Well if you have a GTX 1060 already, that's a good graphics card. The few places that still have stock are charging high prices for them (seems to be averaging $350+ for the 3 Gb version).  Those are the parts that have inflated prices at the moment.

 

Perhaps if you listed what you had already, we could get a better picture.

 

And when would be a good time to start building?

 

Who knows. If not buying a GPU, just go ahead if you have the cash. Memory & SSD's are somewhat expensive at the moment, but within normal range of fluctuation.  The last time there was a rush on GPU's (Bitcoin, a few years ago) the problem ended itself as the difficulty level quickly ramped up to the extent that GPU's were no longer profitable, and custom hardware became required...

i always knew i could transfer over, but when i asked the initial question i was thinking that i was going to build a new pc for my girlfriend and just upgrade some of the components for mine. But since every one said that it might not be a good idea to build right now then i was thinking maybe i should try to build pcs that will run for now.

along with the items i already named, i also had 8gb of RAM (4gb pny ddr3 + 4gb corsair vengeance SDRAM) and for the motherboard i had the GA-F2A88XM-DS2. and when my cpu was still working i had the amd A series black edition. In addition to those i have 1 more 4gb stick of the pny ram, and radeon HD 5870 which i was thinking of putting in my girlfriends pc for the time being. any thought on how long i should wait to get components or if i should get some cheap components to get me by?

Gotcha. Thanks for filling me in. I didn't list the parts i had because i was trying to make one for my girlfriend.
