    Oh yea xD yes
  3. Ouch that is going to cripple this build =) ill see what i can come up with. But i encourage you to save a little more. a 500 budget with a operating system, is a 400 dollar build. What i suggest will be able to play the games. but you will have to run it at 720p and turn the settings down. If this is acceptable let me know.

    This is about the best i can do with that budget. I am 13 dollars over. You could downgrade the gpu to the 7790 for around 150 dollars, but you would be sacrificing gaming performance.
