Solved $600 gaming pc Tags: New Build Systems Last response: March 16, 2011 11:17 PM in Systems Share xyros April 4, 2010 4:17:33 PM [edited thanks for the reminder KageRyu ] I was wondering if you guys can help me with my first build. I'll be purchasing the unit on the end of april and my budget for the rig would be $600 maybe less if the lcd monitor is included as well. I'm going to use this for gaming... (mass effect 2, crysis, far cry 2, and the list goes on... ) i already have an atx casing, a 500w psu a keyboard and mouse, a 40gb and 120gb IDE hdd though would be willing to buy a sata hdd if there is a little more left. i really don't have any preferred website for the parts, though what i'm sure is that i'd be going amd-ati for my proci and gpu i'd like to try some overclocking but i wouldn't mind if the board cannot handle crossfire i'm planning on buying an lcd monitor in place of my crt monitor as well... and there would be no airconditioning whatsoever in my place... so far base on what i read a phenom II x2 555 be would suffice for my processing needs (http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/best-gaming-cpu,257...) and a sapphire hd5770 vapor-x would guarantee that i'd be able to play those titles here is basically what i'm planning so far: proc: phenom II x2 555 be($101) - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... mobo: any good mobo that'd allow me some OCing ram: any 2x2gb ddr3 kit gpu: sapphire hd5770 vapor-x ($175) - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... so far that's $276 and that would give me $324 for my mobo, ram and hopefully an lcd monitor *sigh* I really hope this build can push through... thanks for the help in advance!

All of them are cool&quiet&stuff. - Get only 2G of RAM for now and a decent monitor. You can expand later your RAM, the monitor, not so much. | Report abuse xyros March 16, 2011 11:17:38 PM Best answer selected by xyros. | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Systems>$600 gaming pc> Related ressources: ForumGaming pc for $ 600 Forum$500-$ 600 Gaming /School PC ForumHELP: Suggest a budget gaming PC build under $ 600 including monitor Forum500$- 600 $ budget gaming pc ForumGaming pc under 600 Forum$ 600 -$650 Gaming PC for SWTOR Forum600 $ Gaming PC Forum$500- 600 Budget gaming PC Forum$ 600 Gaming PC ForumNeed advice for a 600 to 700$ gaming pc build ForumBuilding a Gaming PC for no more than $ 600 ForumWhat am I missing? $ 600 budget gaming pc ForumHelp Building $700 Gaming PC Forum[Solved] $600 AMD/ATI gaming system - parts help ForumBudget gaming PC: $600.
