$500 - $600 Gaming PC


BUDGET RANGE: $500-600 Canadian

SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Gaming, Video streaming, Web Browsing, Messengers.

PARTS NOT REQUIRED: Keyboard, mouse, and monitor.

PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: Any place that I can use Canadian currency.

PARTS PREFERENCES: No real preference, I am illiterate when it comes to certain brand names.



MONITOR RESOLUTION: I am using a BENQ FP937s monitor, highest res is 1280x1024.

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: I don't care for brand names at all, as long as it is efficient and within my price range, If i have to spend a little more than 600, than I will. I'm mainly going to be playing games such as UT3, CoD4, TF2 and maybe that Star Wars MMO that's coming out sometime next year. I don't care about playing games at the highest graphics setting, I'm just looking for a smooth, enjoyable playing experience.

  1. And for an OS, I would have to go with Vista I assume?
  2. ^ Yes...but maybe you can save on OS till March 2010 by going with WIN 7 RC...So after that you can purchase the OS...
  3. Another solid build from gkay09. Personally, I'd like to have a slightly bigger PSU just for the headroom, but the Corsair is an excellent choice.
  4. ^ Thanks :)
    And as for the PSU, if 400W seems to be little tight, then this would be a good choice...
