TC, at this point I highly suggest you save your money for awhile. I wouldn't even be thinking about games or building a gaming PC at this point. Save your money and once you reach about $5-6K in your bank account, then build your PC.

Just build my bro a $600 build, and I'm typing on it right now.

AMD X4 750k
MSI mobo
GTX 470
8gb ram
1tb HDD
550w PSU


was approx $500 for the these parts, and he can play everything he wants at really good settings, since he's not using 1920x1080, but 1440x900.

His most demanding game is State of Decay and he can run it on Ultra settings without any lag.


Wow that's good info, not.


Your post was soooo helpful, anyways I was just letting him know what he can expect with a $600 build.

Stop being a jerk.

It was the card from my old system, which I replaced with my 770 GTX, no need for him to go out and buy one =D

$700 is enough to build a decent machine. 600 makes it pretty tough, unless you're ok with not maxing out games next year.

Did you not just suggest he wait until he gets 5-6 grand before building a pc, lol. Why?

What's wrong with the TC saving a bit of money before spending hundreds on a gaming PC?
