I'm working on building a low end machine that would be able to marginally play games along the lines of skyrim and some SWTOR. It doesn't have to have spectacular frames, just enough for it to be playable.
This is being built for my sister and she wants to keep the budget to under $600.
I put this system together on PC Partpicker and wanted to run it by others to see what it should be like, and if anyone would make any changes.
Not looking to OC anything either, just make it compatible for a casual gamer.
get a core i3 or an amd fx 4100 with a radeon 7790 or 650 ti boost becuase the i 5s are overkill for casual games
I did discuss it with her. I know that she would really like to be able to play SWTOR and have it be playable (40+frames on at least med detail). CPU's are the part where I tend to lose a bit of focus. I always lean towards a faster CPU, just in case.
Would an i3 be capable of running games without a massive loss in playability?
Judging by how the game looks i think the i3 or the amd fx 4300 would work just fine.
the i3 and the 4300 are almost the same in performance just choose which you find to work colder and quieter
it looks great after the revision
