Solved

Can anyone help me choose some parts for a cheap gaming pc? I have nothing and it would be great if it was under 800 dollars.

I want to build a PC that can record games like BF4 in low end graphics at like 40 fps. 800 is my budget. Thanks!

  1. Going to be tough with a complete peripheral set. You don't have a monitor, keyboard, mouse, headphones/speakers, operating system, or any other PC components?
  2. $800 IS CHEAP?

  4. Little more GPU power and less CPU, but BF4 multiplayer does need a decent CPU.

    Video card is a generation old. Equivalent would be the R9 270X

    Can I attach any monitor to this?
  9. Pretty much, GTX750Ti has VGA, DVI, and HDMI on board. R7-260X has Two DVI, HDMI, and one Display port. It probably comes with a DVI to VGA adapter.
