Solved Plz suggest mid level gaming rig below USD400 Tags: Homebuilt Games Systems Last response: December 7, 2009 1:01 PM in Systems Share kaptandeath December 7, 2009 12:29:30 PM Hi currently i own dell gx270, which is a fine comp except cannot play even low end games. I mostly use this comp for surfing net and some times for word or excel. But i cannot play any descent games on this comp. So can any one suggest me a good rig that fits these conditions; 1. must be below usd 400/- . i already have monitor 17'', hdd 60gb, mouse, keyboard, speakers and windows xp sp3. So these can be excluded from parts i will be needed to buy. 2. must be able to play games at medium level at resolution 1024*768 pixels only. I dont use any higher resolution and not planning to. 3. the system need not be too mush future proof. ie, I will be using this comp for maybe 2-3 years max and will buy a descent one latter. Because right now I am in a very tight budget 4. I will mostly be using this new comp for internet surfing and sometimes playing games at mid level settings. 5. I want a stable system. my current comp I leave on for 2-3 weeks continuously and it has never crashed in last 2 years. I had bought this second hand for usd 80/- 2 years back. Its very stable.
