AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Gigabyte GA-78LMT-USB3 G.Skill 8GBXL Main Memory DDR3 8 GB PC1600 CL9 Ram Kit 2x 4 GB MSI HD7850 OC AMD/ATI Graphics Card - 2GB 1TB Seagate Barracuda ST1000DM003 3.5" SATA III Hard Drive - HDD 620W Seasonic S12II-620 80PLUS Bronze Power Supply (my budget is around £425) (i chose a higher wattage psu to allow for future upgrading meaning i don't have to fork out as much money in the future) More about : extremely budget amd gaming build bak0n August 30, 2013 7:54:14 AM Yep. If you can pick up an SSD and/or a aftermarket cooler (for OC'ing) for the 965. It games decent still but those 2 changes will really open your system up. m 0 l envy14tpe a b À AMD August 30, 2013 7:54:39 AM get a cheaper PSU. The Seasonic 620W is great but overkill for this and expensive. Saved money might buy you a fx-6300 + 970 mobo. m 0 l Related resources Gaming build with extremely tight budget - Forum Used i5-2400s a good deal for an extremely low budget gaming build? - Forum best budget amd gaming pc build - Forum Hey console vs gaming pc? 1000 dollar budget!!!
