    No monitor, keyboard, mouse or optical drives needed, I'm quite familiar with low budget builds myself but just wanted to pick peoples brains to see if there were any good combo's people rely on. Wouldn't mind a discreet GPU if possible but I understand budget is low, and guess this will probs be an AMD build. Anything that can run most games 1080p with medium settings around 60 fps would be fine, if any better thats great!
