Solved Decent gaming computer for around 500? Tags: Gaming Computers World Of Warcraft Systems Last response: July 29, 2013 7:33 AM in Systems Share mthawkins July 29, 2013 7:16:00 AM I'm looking to buy a pre-built PC or one that I need to build (preferably not) for around 500 dollars. I usually play games like World of Warcraft, Battlefield 3 (and will be 4), Skyrim, etc. I'd like to run those on high/ultra if possible.. especially BF4. Suggestions?

That doesn't leave much for everything else. You probably won't play BF4 comfortably at Ultra under $700. Go read the builder marathon articles for $500-1200 builds. That will give you a general idea of what to aim for.
