Hey everyone.

I have been looking for a new PC for some time now. I have very little money so I am hoping to spend around 300.

I know that is a tiny amount compared to what I should spend but I am not obsessed with top notch graphics I am just after a machine that will play most of the latest games with as little money spent as possible.

I stumbled across this video on youtube.

It seems a little too good to be true,

Can someone take a look for me and let me know if the parts are any good for what I am after?

Thanks.

I wouldn't do it. With that PC with whats in it the PS4 will look better for games.

Two problems with it.......

The PSU. I wouldn't risk using such a cheapo PSU for gaming, even with a budget build like that. I would much rather get a Corsair 430w PSU.

The CPU. Despite what he says, it's weak by today's standards. Chances are you'd soon be wishing you'd opted for something better.


Also, even for a budget build, I'd opt for a 750Ti, rather than a 1GB HD 7790.

Virtually any PC will "play" any games. You're going to need to be more descriptive than that.

300 will get you very little, it not get you a gaming PC.
