Looking to build a $400-$500 Nvidia PC thats stronger than the PS4/XB1

-GPU nor CPU cannot absolutely be AMD. It needs to be a nvidia GPU and an intel CPU

- Needs to be stronger than the PS4 and XB1. Doesn't matter if it's only slightly stronger, that's fine.

Budget is $500, willing to pay $650 at most.

No trolls please.

Are you including a monitor/mouse/keyboard/speakers/windows in that price?

Because if so, forget about it. If not, then the higher end of your budget is possible.

PC hardware doesn't need to match console hardware in price when PC gamers save literal thousands from the software they buy.

But Windows is? Because that's adding about $100 to the price right there, which is significant.

I'm not saying it's impossible to build one for the price you're asking (assuming you're serious,) but you're going to have to find some solid deals. I mean the CPU/GPU/RAM/HDD/Power Supply is going to be over $500 on its own, and you've still got to get a case to put it all in, a motherboard, a DVD drive, and Windows. This is of course assuming you buy everything new.

If you live in a relatively large area, search Craigslist. Great deals can be had on there. If not, like I said you're definitely pushing the high end of your budget.
