Isn't $400 relatively cheap? Also RAM is cheap man >_>
I'm actually basing this off of an HP Pavillion computer. This would be my first computer built. I was going to build something with a dual core Sandy Bridge, but four cores man! (You can tell I'm new at this.)
I've never done any PC gaming due to lack of resources (besides Minecraft). I think I'd be able to do some light gaming on this build (mostly old games I guess). It's supposed to be used as a family computer (basic functions) for 4-6 years...
4GB ram for $20 Pentium G620 cpu H61 mobo HDD is fine corsair cx430, antec vp450
The G620 is actually what I was looking at before. But what's better, Pentium G620 or an i3? I know the integrated graphics card on the original one is good enough for playing older PC games, but yeah... --- (^o^) (^o^) (^o^)

Wait for the Trinity APU desktop parts to come in august. Then you can get a cheap 7670 or whatever and AS Crossfire. --- Deth Pen

Well, the i3 is better than the g620, and both would be better than the AMD cpu, but the integrated graphics aren't as good. You'd need to spend like $60-$70 on at least a 6570/6670 .

well i just made a $400 build with the same hard drive, pentium G620, 4GB ram, cx430 psu (cheap yet good one), source 210 (solid budget case) and a 7750 for $400. you ordering this online? --- "There is nothing new under EA." - Fony http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=2363251

TC, I'm confused why the parts you mentioned in your first post cost almost $400, since adding them up individually didn't get close to that number. --- i3-2120 || HD 6870 || CX430 || NZXT S210E TZ68K+ (lol) || 12GB ddr3 (lol x2) || 2x 80GB hdd (ssjlol3)
