  1. What is your budget?
  2. I think I messed up the detail part. :/ Newbie things.
    I saved 340 $ and can save up to 400 $. I would like everyone to focus on 340 $ budget first. You guys are geniuses. You can come up with combination. If not, I'll gladly and humbly accept 400 $ suggestions. I know both of these budgets aren't enough but I'm not an ultra freak.
    Thank you.
  3. With an OS purchase, youll be at $240-300 for a complete PC. Save more money.

    I'm prioritizing 340 $ but it can go up to 400 $ if there's nothing in there for 340.

    Oh, you meant to say I could play games in a decent matter in around 300 $ ?
  10. I am afraid I can´t get much clearer than I already did.

    What games are you going to play?
  12. No, thank you. I re-read the " save more " part.
  13. Anything new but to be very honest, Dota 2 which doesn't ask for much but you never know about the change of mood.

    Thank you.
  16. I want to ask another question. This will sound stupid. It most probably is. What if I buy a Core 2 Quad 2.40 GHz, 8 GB RAM with a GTX 750 TI? Will it run stuff in a smooth manner? Finding an old MOBI isn't an issue if that's the only issue existing.

    This can´t play newer games ... there is no dedicated graphics card. You´ll be stuck to older games and games that have virtually no graphics demand.
