Hi there, I want to build myself a new gaming PC and my old P4 computer can hardly run anything anymore even with hyper-threading on...so could you please help me, I want to build the cheapest gaming rig possible..I dont have a big budget at all (im only 13 :) ).

Thanks,
Zack

    heres the link: http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/261222-31-build-advice
  2. sorry i didnt realise..


    APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: This month, or as soon as i have decided. BUDGET RANGE: £450

    SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: gaming, internet, music, films videos etc.

    PARTS NOT REQUIRED: Moniter, mouse, keyboard and speakers

    PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: dont really have a preference but everyone seems to like newegg.com and other well known sites.

    PARTS PREFERENCES: AMD since its processors are usually cheaper but a equivalent Interl for the same price would be great,

    OVERCLOCKING: No.. Maybe SLI OR CROSSFIRE: no..

    MONITOR RESOLUTION: i already have a moniter...good resolution...sorry i dont know its highese though..

    ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: I would like this build to last me quite a while...and to be upgradeable in the future. not too bothered what at looks like as my budget wont allow me to have a great looking case..its what inside that counts :)


    Thanks in advance.

  3. Have you checked out the System Builds on this site ?

  4. Heres the build I'm working on (although it isn't working, it should!)

    Mobo: ASUS M4A77TD Pro
    CPU: AMD Phenom 2 X2 550
    RAM: Crucial DDR3 2GB
    GPU: XFX ATI Radeon 4870 512mb
    PSU: OCZ StealthXStream 600w
    HDD: Seagate Barracuda 500GB
    DVD-RW: Generic LG something or other
    Case: Cooler Master Elite 330 I believe

    That all came in at about £410 pounds on Ebuyer and should be more than adequate for your gaming needs.
