I just chose the parts to build my gaming pc. I'm pretty an proud of it, and I want to see if there is a better option to the price. I'm looking for a pc with at least 1tb, a 4gb graphics card, and something that will beat mine in competition. I'm not about to release the specs yet, because I don't want you guys to just copy mine and modify it. I do need you to find the items on tigerdirect.com, and the items can be refurbed, but cannot be scratch and dent, or anything worse. The components must have a greater than 3 star rating. Keep in mind, this is not a question, but i'm just bored and wanted to see if there is a better alternative to this build. Take this as a competition.

Well then, challenge accepted!

OS- WIndows 8.1 (http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite...) - 100 dollars

GPU- XFX R9 280x (3gb, there is no 4)(http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite...) - 260 dollars

CPU- AMD fx-6300 - (119) (http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite...)

MOBO - ASUS m5a97 (78) (http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite...)

Case - anything (40-100)

Ram - ADATA 8gb (56) (http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite...)

Corsair 600w psu (60)(http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite...)

TOTAL - 713 - 763

TOO MUCH? Go to microcenter.com and get one of their MOBO CPU combos (MSI and fx 6300) for 140, saving you 57 dollars.

TOTAL AFTER COMBO - 656 - 713

Or get XFX R9 280 instead for 200 (http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite...)

Saving you 60 dollars on ya build.

UPDATE - FORGOT THE HDD -.-

Western Digital Blue - (70) (http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite...)

TOTAL after all discounts -
$666.00
Probably one of the most beast builds as of right now. BTW there is barely any difference between r9 280 and 280x (overclock a bit) and are better than gtx 760 and 770 in performance

Some say that 770 performs better, but to my experience, r9 280/x performs better at most games.
