Hey, looking for a gaming pc to compete with next gen consoles. Looking to play Elder scrolls online on ultra right now, but eventually may do some more upgrades (if needed) for other games like titanfall and BF4 and things. Hoping to get 400-500 but i realize thats very tough if not possible. Just lookin for build ideas. First time build here so any advice helps

Not trying to deter you from wanting to build your own computer as there are many benefits aside from saving money. Though I have to say that I got an EVGA 750 Ti SC with just an A-10 6700 APU 3.7ghz Quad-Core an my ESO was playing on Ultra with no problems. Also, the GPU that I got can play Titanfall better than the Xbox One. Just something to think about. Make sure your build is future ready if you go that route even if you plan on using cheaper parts for it to be on budget.

Well I'm a first time computer gamer. I bought the Xbox One an after a month I sold it along with my xbox 360. I went to bestbuy (I don't recommend doing this but anyways) and got a desktop computer for $400 which had Windows 8 OS and the A-10 6700 APU with a keyboard an mouse, no monitor. So after realizing I could have gotten a better deal had I built the computer myself (I didn't have the patience lol) I decided to cut my losses an keep the machine an do minor upgrade to it. I bought the EVGA 750Ti SC an now I can play all the latest games.

Basically what I'm saying is I spent just over what you are wanting to spend an got a store bought computer to play the latest games on high to ultra in most cases with playable frame rates 30-60. So you can go the route I went or using myself as an example you could easily build your own an get a lot more performance than I have for the same price.

It really is up to you if you have the patience and time to build your own. Otherwise throw a $100 or more extra into a computer that you could build yourself for cheaper an get an entry level gaming machine going like myself.

EDIT: Also, when you are looking at builds on youtube an on forums like this take into consideration that a lot of people that enjoy posting their builds are usually enthusiasts who got the know how an extra money. You don't need all the top end stuff to get a computer that will play the latest games. Most of the builds you see online are computers that will easily reach well above 60 frames a second on high or ultra.

That almost describes my situation exactly lol. Thank you so much haha. I'm definitely leaning towards building my own. And I agree, I don't need a machine that will pump put 60+frames. If I hit 30 I'm happy lol. If you got any suggestions for building a machine lemme know!
