^^I showed you a build that can at least equal the next gen consoles at about the price range you asked for. Don't even start with finances.


I'm only 15 with no job. This is for my family not for my personal use.

Like I said earlier... Look at a Dell Optiplex 3010.

Building one yourself makes no sense in your situation.

Old. Very old, get rid of it.

Here's a link to the "Xbox one killer" from r/pcmasterrace. It's about $500, but you'll need to spend another $100 on an OS, $15 on a disc drive, and you'll need to assemble it yourself. But, as the name suggests, it totally blows away the xbox one in terms of raw hardware.

it's not an xbox one killer.

My HD 6870 plays BF4 at 1920x1080 60fps with medium settings. Might not completely destroy the XBone, but that build will run anything you throw at it probably better than the console will.

Why are we debating gaming performance when the guy didn't ask for a gaming computer? It's a family computer. For all we know he doesn't give two ****s about PC gaming. In fact he said he doesn't want a gaming PC.

IMHO:

AMD's Kaveri launches in January and $600 should give you a rather nice desktop. Cutting edge HSA features, plus Mantle API. No extra graphics card needed, but you could still play BF4 with nice settings if you were so inclined. It can honestly be the bang-4-the-buck system for people on a budget.
