Pentium G3220 + H81/B85 motherboard + 750 Ti

Easy.


I think you can throw an i3 + gtx 660 for $650. Or a basic i5 + gtx 750 ti.

They all are, no one seriously thinks they can get a proper gaming machine for under 500 dollars.


$500 will get you a lot more with black Friday sales and if the next gen geforce or amd cards are out by then... I am just sayin.

I was a little baffled by that as well. Maybe is a nividia fanboy. Which I find to be even more silly than the console fanboys, considering how many different computer components both amd and nividia make.

You can really build it however you want. The build I chose was keeping upgrading in mind. You could go cheaper motherboard and better CPU, or less GPU and more CPU.

If you have a slim budget, you have to skimp somewhere. That really could be anywhere just depending on what you want right now, and what you'd plan to buy later.

To be honest TC you really can't make a PC for $500 at this point that will keep up with the PS4 over the long haul. The PC may have technically slightly better specs but over the years games will increasingly be optimized to the consoles.

I would use the 500 dollars to get first a good MOBO/CPU that will support future components. Save up and build the PC over time to exceed the PS4 noticeably.

If you take that approach then yeah it will take longer to get the PC finished but when it is it will have no problem handling the console ports over the years to come.

Probably to make things harder on us for no reason.

TC, don't ever buy parts and wait until later to buy the rest. That's just not a good idea with PC components.
