Solved $400-$500 Gaming PC For My Friend Tags: Gaming Consoles Systems PC gaming Last response: August 15, 2013 7:49 PM in Systems Share KateUpton August 15, 2013 7:33:18 PM Hello. My friend wants to get into PC gaming, and instead of getting one of the new consoles, he decided it's finally time for him to get a PC. His price range is $400-$500, possible $600. I don't think he has a mouse, keyboard or a monitor. For a graphics card, I have an old GTX 560 Ti that I might be able to sell that to him for $80. If anyone has any recommendations, I (and him) would really appreciate it. If you can post a PC build in the comments, possible with a mouse/keyboard and monitor that would be awesome! Thank you so much. More about : 400 500 gaming friend Reply to KateUpton Best solution Seladon a b 4 Gaming August 15, 2013 7:49:14 PM A bit above the 500$ bar, but it should be a pretty good build !
