$350 Gaming Build?

Hey guys, I know I'm asking the impossible, yet I need a $350 gaming computer. I dont need an operating system in the build. Something decent would be great. I already have a mouse, monitor, and keyboard.

Post your builds here and say what games it can run and at what settings!

I live near a microcenter

  1. $350 gaming computer? Good luck.
  2. I suggest saving some more, as $350 will not buy you much when it comes to gaming.

  6. FYI: when you post that ($350 for a computer) that is without monitor, keyboard, mouse and most importantly OS (as in you don't already OWN a NON-OEM copy of Windows you can legally put on a new PC).

    Your best suggestion would head to, for $399 you get a i5 Core PC (even a laptop) then look to buy a replacement PSU to power it and your GPU card you would buy last. At that point your running a decent core (i5), have RAM (8GB usually), storage (500GB+), DVD drive, OS (Win8), screen, keyboard and mouse all under warranty and can defer the costs of the PSU / GPU till later (since a good PSU is like $129+ then GPU around $149+) till you save up for each.
