  1. Bump?
  2. 1) No bumping

    2) Not happening at $450 - here's an insanely cheap build http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/mini-itx-gaming-radeon-hd-7750,3369-10.html
  3. Sorry for the bumping but i disagree with the not happening part. Ive seen great builds worth 350$. I just need some help putting parts together available in my country. And the build you sent is over my budget.
  4. the tricky bit is you are in the Philippines.

    at your price range the best bet is an A10-5800K system
  5. A $450 machine will *barely* run BF3 multi and FC3 on low. The only thing that might make it playable is your resolution.

    Here is a thread for the top end of your budget. Don't go less than quad core.

    The g2020 paired with a 7770 will not barely run bf3 on low and if i go cheap with the mobo, case and ram ill have a gaming machine (that cant really encode that fast, multitask that much, and only has 2 cores) but i kinda want an apu rig since i can game for a while without a gpu then get a high end gpu. Since the a10 5800k competes with the i3 in cpu performance i think the apu is a good "investment", IMHO.
  7. i'd suggest either a a10-5800K or an FX 4300 and HD 7750
  8. get an 670 for 350$ , sleep on the bed and think what does this great gpu can do. :)

    [just jk guys]

    if u can wait for A6-6xxx i will be really good due to the graphics improvements

    if not then do as the guys above here says.

  10. Im doing this as a fun build but it should also preform well and all the people saying it wont preform or its not possible thats not true lol i built a fx 4100 system with a gts 450 and it killed far cry 3 med settings 1080p 50fps avg. Go with my build and OC the cpu and you have a decent build......... for now.

    Im buying parts tomorrow.


    +1 except on the cpu and mobo he better get these parts:-


    1.CPU:Intel Core i3-3220 Ivy Bridge 3.3GHz LGA 1155 55W Dual-Core Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 2500 BX80637i33220 @ $129


    2.MOBO:ASRock H61M-DGS LGA 1155 Intel H61 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard @ $44

    with a total of 40 more [apprx. $410 for the whole build]

    it will be better and here is the evidence
  13. Best answer? (: I needed it to be 400 exactly thats why i did that lol im selling my old build.
  14. and im looking at base price.
  15. That build is mostly useless...he's not in the USA, he's in the Philippines!
  16. ^exactly what i thought. Lol thanks for the help though.

    I also dont need a case now since my mom bought me a nice cm storm scout ii (i love my mom) . I still need an os in thr budget though. :(
  17. Just download it from any torrent site. [Joking]

    the cheapest 7 OS is $100 [Windows 7 home premium 32/64 bit]

    so if u can get a little over budget get it. if u can't there is a few solutions:-
    1.If u have a friend with this OS ask him for the dvd.
    2.Borrow it from any friend/store...
    3.install any OS u have [like windows Xp etc..] until u save for 7
