honestly if you even have to ask whats the most powerful pc, then pc gaming is not for you.


I know nothing about pc. im not text savvy.. cant blame me


I can blame you. If you are clueless go do some research first then come and ask questions. You have no idea on how things work and expecting miracles.


leave


no you leave and go do some research

Well I built an FX 8320 CPU with 8gb ram asus m5a97 re 2.0 MOBO and sapphire 270x GPU. Not the most powerful computer (not even CLOSE) but a good balance of cost vs performance. My build would be considered "outdated" as the parts are all mid-range parts that have been out for a while. But I don't care. It's my first PC, I can play games on it. And they look and run infinitely better than console games.


how much did it cost you?


Well i'm in canada so parts are a little more here and a couple items have dropped a bit in price over the last 2 months. (tax is 13% as well)
CPU 159 + tax
GPU 235 + tax
MOBO 99 + tax
RAM 80 + tax
PSU 40 + tax
HDD 109 + tax ( I got a 3tb but a 1 tb is more than enough that's 50$)
SSD 70$ + tax
Case 40 + tax
3 extra fans 35 + tax
CPU cooler 30 + tax
Total 896 + tax
Total with tax 1012.48 CDN$

If you cut the SSD ans the big HDD that's 130 off the cost right there. The 270x is about 50$ cheaper now and the 6300 is like 50$ cheaper than the 8320 as well. so that's 230 off my build easy. you don't NEED the case fans and CPU cooler so that's another 65 off if you don;t plan to overclock. So you could do a similar build to mine for only 600 + tax CDN $

that's still a bit too much (im relying on someone elses money) I would like to know what I need to run the games today such as bf 4 or something. the name of the parts I mean. and ill go from there

really now? im interested.... whats the best desktop I can get for around $600 max?


if you not willing to build, a ps4 and some games is the best "pc" you can buy. If you willing to build probably this.

its $500 but you will need to spend $100 for the os.


really? that cheap!? how long will it last before its outdated?


I can guarantee you that system will run every game out right now on Very High settings @ 1080p/30FPS.

I would Guarantee that build will do it as well. I would opt for the r9 270x card instead of the 260x in that build and you are good to go.

I just THREW this one together now

It's sub 600$ and will easily run games @ 1080 30-45fps for a LOOOONG time

no you aren't missing anything. Monitor, mouse, keyboard and OS are usually not included in price. I assume you have a tv? use that for monitor. mouse and keyboard aren't that important, just grab a cheapo loogitech one at your local walmart/bestbuy/costco. and the OS IS $100 but if you have a comp already you CAN have it moved to the new one if you contact microsoft. ( I don't know how and I'm not 100% on this) But for value CS $ that build is pretty solid, You can go cheaper if you want if you skimp on the MOBO you could save 40$ or so but I wouldn't
