Can you build a gaming machine for 700$ with a minimum of a 760?

That build doesn't include an OS, so it's actually a $740 build.

There's my revised build now that I read your post correctly, $696.

Do they make mitx AM3+ boards? I remember looking awhile back and not seeing any. I tried putting something together but it ended up at 700 and still didn't have the case or HDD. $800 is about what it costs for a 4570/760 build, add a bit more for mitx board and a decent case. You could probably do $800 mitx if you went with an i3.

As far as I can see, no...

Anyway, quickly looking, this is the best I could come up with. I'm sure it can be touched up here and there, but whatever...

Edit: Would be easier if you bumped your budget up a bit. Even if by just $50.

I think if he's demanding the 760, $800 is a more reasonable budget. I don't even like the build I posted because I had to cut corners so much, aside from the GPU.

$800 would be nice. But even $750 could improve the build a bit over a $700 budget. I actually don't think the build I posted was too bad, minus the A6.

Edit: For $773, I was able to work in a Haswell i3. $750 and I can up the A6 to the latest unlocked A10.

$700 budget that must allow room for Case, OS, and HDD is not enough if you are also going to throw in a GTX760 stipulation.

You either need to wait until you have more money, wait for price drops, or be willing to get a different GPU. Buying a $300 GPU and not even being able to afford a $225 i5 CPU is just silly.

Nvidia is rumored to be dropping price in November to compete with the newest AMD cards. Wait until then if you insist on a 760.

Right now you could get a 7950 for $205 ($179 after rebate) that would come with three free games. Of course when AMD launches their new line next month, the price will go down a little further on the 7XXX series, so you should still probably wait.

He wants to be able to use a $300 streaming gameboy, so he needs his Nvidia card.

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.

You can shave off $18 if you get the Corsair 430 from Tiger Direct for $20:
