Hello, I'm new here
And I am wanting to build a gaming computer for myself and I only have a budget of $500 dollars. I'm somewhat a casual/ hardcore gamer. I play many FPS titles such as CoD, and Battlefield 3. But I also want to play GTA IV (Which is a very CPU intensive game) and the upcoming release of GTA V. I already have a build in mind but it already is over my price range. But anyways here is the list and do you think it is worth buying? And also can you figure out a way to make this a little bit lower price? (PS - I don't need a case or monitor, keyboard, OS, and mouse.)
(ALL PARTS WERE FOUND AT AMAZON.COM)
CPU:AMD FX-6300 3.5GHz
RAM:Kingston HyperX 8GB DDR3-1600
GPU:Asus Radeon HD 7850 2GB
HDD:Western Digital Caviar Blue 500GB
PSU:Corsair CX Series 500 Watt Modular 80 PLUS
MOBO: MSI 970A-G43
Yes I am able, I also live near Microcenter if that helps any.
Typically the best computer parts you can get from microcenter are a CPU + mobo combo. Everything else I'd buy online. You can get a fx-6300 + 970A-G46 AM3+ for $160! That's an unbeatable price. Also you could get a fx-8320 + 970A-G46 AM3+ for $190. Awesome prices.
