Yeah it'll work but thats a very low end gpu dont expect much for games

And I'd get a blue over green HDD the power saving really lowers the performance

That isnt a really good gaming build. I suggest switching over to amd with that much budget.

ok, ive updated it, is there anything else i'm missing, or anything else i should update? also is that Graphics card better? im trying to be as cheap as possible, i dont have much money. if you have a better build for less, or you want to change stuff about that build, feel free to mess around with it. i hope the GPU is good enough, and i hope i can have a decent gaming pc. here is the updated build: i wouldnt mind if someone could make me a similar priced build on the same website, or another australian website, and i have a friend who can assemble it for me.

write down your budget here, we can help you picking the right parts

I think the build got worst from the first link. You should switch to AMD or if you really want to stay intel it has to be an i3. because the GPU isn't worth the price.

i dont have a set budget, but cheaper is better, as i have to save up, and i'm 16, and all the money from it will come from either centrelink or a low paying once a week $50 type of job, hoping to stay under $1000. feel free to design a build using that info, but i REALLY like this case:

obviously, im not very good at building pc's.
its main reason for being built is to run games like watchdogs, and the next gen games coming out, with a high frame rate and high level graphics.

i only recently got into gaming through my friends, and i know im sounding like a whiney 13 year old graphics-whore, but i really do enjoy gaming. im used to console, but my friends convinced me to swap. i'd buy a next gen console, but then i would need a new tv, my old one is really small.

Best solution

i might check its price on pc case gear, as amazon and websites like that dont really deliver to the rural area im about to move to...
December 8, 2013 10:50:56 PM

oh nervermind, that is pc case gear, not amazon. my bad.
December 8, 2013 10:51:24 PM

are all of those australian retailers?
December 8, 2013 10:54:30 PM

yes, they are potentially the cheapest retailer for those parts
but you might want to double check the price in pccasegear as well
December 8, 2013 10:55:49 PM

i will probably buy from pc case gear, and then pick them up in store, as i know where a nearby pc case gear store is, so i can save on P&H
December 8, 2013 10:57:35 PM

is there anything else i need to get besides the case to have a full pc? besides monitors eg.
December 8, 2013 10:58:01 PM

i need a soundcard and network adapter and cd drive, dont i?
December 8, 2013 10:59:11 PM

no soundcard needed, you may want a wifi stick if u want to use wifi tho. CD only if u use.
December 8, 2013 11:38:18 PM

which kind of cables would i need to buy?
