How can i build a computer with $250? My cousin gave me a WD 640gb HDD, an Ati Radion Ati 5770 gpu, and a Corsair 750W PS. So what esle do I need to put in, so I can get a system that can handle games. I wouldn't care if the Cpu is Amd or Intel. And, should i buy an old dvd drive?
Quad-core CPU, 8GB of RAM... its a half decent budget build that will be able to do moderate gaming just fine. My bro has a very similar setup and runs Battlefield 3 on high settings. The only question is, do you need an OS? Because you are looking at a another $90 for Windows 7.
