Hi guys I am looking for a $550 dollar build just need the basics no monitor, no accessories and no os. I want the best performance for my money, I cant afford to go any further above $550 and I live in canada. I would like it just to do gaMING like bf4 lol and other games.

Dang... so here's the fun part. Put a "ca" at the front of that link to make Partpicker choose Canadian vendors.

Suddenly the cost of that build is 700+

Because Canada!
