  1. A GPU which isn't more than 50$?

    You must be joking.

    What's your budget?
  2. There's a sticky in the top of the Systems forum about asking for a new build. Fill out the form.

    You'll likely want a cheaper CPU/MB and better GPU. PSU isn't great either.
  3. plzz tell us ur total budget .

    CPU AMD FX 8320 - 10000+
    MB GIGABYTE 990XA-UD3

    HDD 1TB SEAGATE
    CABINET COOLER MASTER K380

    That's a heck of a lot of CPU, given that you're going for 4 GB of RAM and want a $50 GPU. For gaming machines, you generally want it the other way around: weaker CPU, powerful GPU. What's your total budget, and where and when do you plan to purchase?
  5. cpu is to powerful for ur build
    get fx 6300 and a cheaper mobo with a better gpu like hd 7770 or gtx 650 ti at least
    4gb of ram would be okay as it is the easiest thing to upgrade u just need to buy the same stick and add it
  6. Sorry, it was a mistake from my end (missed '1' in the price of GPU). I can spend upto $150. Please suggest about this configuration and a GPU. My total budget is $600.

    I still wouldn't advise spending to (relatively) little on a GPU, relative to CPU, and particularly not while scrimping on RAM. Again, having a total budget would be most ideal.

    Edit: I should note, some would disagree with me about that CPU to GPU spending ratio. While it's generally agreed that GPU is more important for gaming, the exact ratio is often debated.

    My total budget is upto $500 for the above configuration excluding GPU. And for GPU $100 to $150. If you can suggest a good configuration below to this budget, it will be really helpful.
  9. I would recommend either of the following:

    CPU-heavy build:

    Both have good quality parts and should offer solid performance.

    Edit: If you need to drop price, you could consider using the CPU of the second build (i3-3220) with the first build. You could also drop the GPU to a Radeon HD 7770, though I don't recommend that.

    Edit 2: You may also wish to consider waiting for Intel's new processors, Haswell, which will be coming out on the 3rd.
