Help Me Build My First Gaming PC

#1JoeofmarsPosted 8/4/2013 11:34:12 PM
Price Range: $500 - $700 (Not including monitor, keyboard, mouse, operating system)

Games I want to Be Able To Run Mid-High settings:

- Saints Row IV
- The Bureau: X-Com Declassified
- Payday/Payday 2
- Skyrim
- Batman Arkham Games
- Watch_Dogs
- Tomb Raider

Another big thing is that I don't want to use a monitor, I want to game on my HDTV, so I would need something with an HDMI port. Am I shooting too low with my budget? I could go higher if necessary, but that is what I want to spend. I figure those games would be the most demanding games I would play.

Thanks for the help in advance.

if you can, I will go with a AMD FX-8350 instead, its 80 dollars more, but its much better.

i5, 760, 1tb hdd, $100 motherboard. 8 gigs of ram. That's $600ish, if you get a non-overclockable i5. A year ago you could have gotten an overclockable one at the same price, but ram prices are on the rise and that's another $50 or so cut from the budget.

Once we perfect building Mechs, I expect there to be a factory in Mexico pumping out a brand call Mechsican. I wanna buy me a Mechsican.

Thank you! And this AMD FX-8350, is that for the CPU? How much better are we talking here? I don't really know anything about PC parts, so use simple terms :P

30% I believe. Now here is the thing, if you learn how to overclock you can get the 6300 to run at the same performance of the 8350 at stock settings (no overclocking), and you can save money, and you can invest into a better graphics card.
