Hi, i'm wanting to make a cheap gaming PC with maximum price of £600 but would preferably want to have it at around £400-£500.

I would like it to play games on high settings (60fps) and to also make it future proof so if i do need to upgrade it.

I am wanting it all to fit in a bitfenix prodigy case as i have limited space. I have made some designs already but i'm not sure on what they are like benchmark wise.

It would be amazing if someone could create a rig for me as i am not that much of a computer genius.

Thank you :)

not possible for £500-£600 @60fps @1080P, because to do that in a normal size would cost more than that, and small is not cheaper. although the only small component is the mobo.

Its a normal build with a mini-itx mobo and two sticks of RAM.

I gotta agree with him, you might be a little ambitious to get all of this at that price. the mobo is generally a good bit more for an equal amount of features on a smaller motherboard. we can still look at getting you the most for your money. do you need os, monitor, keyboard and mouse?

Not including os,monitor,keyboard and mouse.

so would this build not work in a bitfenix prodigy case?:
-Gigabyte GA-78LMT-S2 AM3+ 760 MATX - VGA+ SND+GLN+U2 SATA 3GB/S DDR3 IN
-AMD FX4170 X4 Core 4.2GHz, AM3+, Retail, Bulldozer CPU, 8MB Cache
-Western Digital Blue 1TB (7200rpm) SATA 6Gb/s 64MB 3.5 inch Hard Drive (Internal)
-XFX Radeon HD 7750 Graphics Card 2GB DDR3 PCI Express 3.0 x16 DisplayPort/HDMI/Dual DVI
-Corsair Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) Memory Kit PC3-15000 1866MHz DDR3 DIMM
-Corsair CX600 - Power supply ( internal ) - ATX12V 2.3/ EPS12V - 80 PLUS Bronze - AC 100-240 V - 600 Watt
-Lite-On DVD+-R/RW/DL/RAM SATA BLACK

as i said i'm not really a computer genius so somethings i'm not too sure about.

no that is a micro atx motherboard. you need to get a mini itx motherboard. also that gpu will not give you 60 fps at 1920x1080 on high settings

So can you recommend a micro atx motherboard please and what do you think the fps would be with that gpu on high settings?

also i'd suggest that the amd build will run a lot hotter and louder than an intel build due to the tdp of the chip, and in a small case with potentially limited airflow this would be a problem.

you need something like:

http://www.scan.co.uk/shop/computer-hardware/all/mother... - check the amd chip against the socket type.

http://www.scan.co.uk/shop/computer-hardware/all/mother... - any 1155 socket chip, sandy or ivybridge.


right ok, this is a start, thank you :D

thats just a little something i put together. should be really fast for the price. also keep in mind that we could use a similar set up with b75 motherboard and a 3470 or so for a little cheaper and get you right at your 600 dollar budget, i was just trying to see what the newest stuff would cost.
