Hello everyone! i am new here so i hope this is the right category. I am looking to build a PC capable of running Wargaming games(World of tanks, etc.) on medium settings. This is my first build so my budget is $500-600. I already have the OS, monitor, keyboard. I was wondering if someone could lay out a build for me to look at. I am really exciting and hope to see your responses.

This might work. If you have a little more to play with then upgrading the GPU to GTX660 or R9 270 would be the way to go, whichever you could afford. But it should run your medium settings fine. Keeping an eye out on sales on memory and possibly going for a 970 base mobo, you can easily tweak this under $600.

You don't really need such a motherboard. Instead, you should really save on the Motherboard and get a better GPU if you are gaming.

Oh yeah, the 760 should be able to get good frames at High or even Ultra Settings at WOT
