I want to build my own gaming PC. As you can see from the title I am on a budget but I would still like to get a Intel core. I already have a monitor and mouse. The most intensive things I will be playing are League of Legends, Team Fortress 2, Saints Row IV and I would like to host a Minecraft server from time to time.
I don't need a fancy case because I would like to spend more on components.
Please list the price in CAD.
Thank you very much. I was originally thinking of going for a i5-3570 and have a cheaper video card. Would it be better to go for a cheaper CPU and spend more on the GPU as you have done in these builds? Would games benefit more from that?
Well, for gaming a fx-6300 is more than adequate (especially when OC'ed on an aftermarket cooler).
Also, to answer your question regarding better cpu cheaper gpu/cheaper cpu better gpu - There's really no point in getting a really good cpu and cheap gpu if all you really want to do is game. Your better off going with a GOOD cheap cpu (fx-6300) and strong gpu if you want to have a good overall gaming experience.
Here's a revision of the amd build above (better gpu/cpu cooler to OC the fx-6300) -
