450 dollar gaming pc build

Hi guys I was looking to build a gaming pc for 450 dollars Cad. I am not too good with computers but I would like the best performance possible. I will mainly only be using it for gaming no video rendering nothings like that just gaming. I was wondering if someone could build me a computer that could run bf4 on high or ultra with 50-60 fps and next gen games on low or med with 50-60 fps. I don't need a monitor an os or any accessories I have them

    It's $50 more, but it's well worth it. Solid GPU and balanced specs.
  3. Here is your $ 450 budget Gaming Rig :

  4. How many ram slots would the motherboard have cus i might upgrade in the future
  5. Taking a look at this month's $750 SBM build, and what can be trimmed even a little, I think you might be a little over-optimistic about what you'll be able to get for $450. What is the current exchange rate? If it is close to 1:1 now, you might do it for as little as $550 (accepting High settings now, likely Medium later) with a R7 260X and an i3, powered by an Antec VP-450.

    2 RAM slots.That is enough for this budget gaming Rig.
  7. lets say i upped my budget even more to 550 what would be the best build I could go with for gaming only
  8. http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/p/2M9Ej how would this build look?
  9. Looks like a little too much spent on the case, and not a good PSU. The Corsair "CX" line is built using some inferior Samxon capacitors that do not like heat. An Antec VP-450 would be a better choice. Efficiency is similar (although it isn't certified for not having active PFC), and it uses Japanese capacitors. Otherwise, that's the graphics card, but go for a dual-channel RAM kit. Try for the i3 also; it will beat those low-end AMD chips silly. A FX-6300 would offer decent performance, but still get beaten by an i3 (as this month's $750 build illustrated), and you'd need a more expensive motherboard and cooler that aren't needed with the i3.
  10. I believe something like this is what Onus is recommending.

  14. Yes, something like that first i3 build indeed. I believe the i3 is a better choice than the FX-6300. Read today's $750 SBM article for some benchmark comparisons between an i3 (this quarter) and a FX-6300 (3Q2013). In games, the i3 wins across the board.
  15. http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/p/3gYJX I think think this build would be good I just made a few small tweaks nothing major
  16. Best answer
    That build will be fine if you're really set on using the AMD chip. The RAM bandwidth will be limited since it's running in single-channel mode, but I'm guessing you went with the 1x4GB to allow upgrading to more RAM in the future. Be sure to get the exact same model number of RAM if you upgrade or you may run into compatibility issues.
