I am looking to build a computer for when I attend college next year that can play games like Starcraft 2, WoW and minecraft without significant lag as well as programs such as AutoCAD. Right now I am playing these games on a laptop that is pretty basic, so you can imagine how limited I am when it comes to gaming.
I am the occasional gamer and I just want something that can be upgraded somewhat easily in the future. Unfortunately my budget is only 300 dollars for now. This is why I am asking for help with this build .
Thanks again for your guys help!
P.S. I am sorry if this is in the wrong category. I was a little confused which one to put it in and there isn't a category for just PC builds I think.
Since the 300 dollars is your budget "for now", I advise that you save up a bit more for a better PC. You won't be sorry you did it
However, if you cannot, something that will run these games on your budget would be along the lines of:
Motherboard: GIGABYTE GA-G41MT-S2P LGA 775 $60~
Processor: Intel Celeron E3400 Wolfdale 2.6GHz Dual-Core LGA 775 Socket $50~
Video Card: eVGA e-GeForce 9500 GT Graphics adapter - 1 GB - DDR2 SDRAM $50~
Memory: Crucial Ballistix Tracer 2GB RAM $17~
HDD: Seagate Barracuda 250GB $37~
PSU: LOGISYS 480W Power Supply $15~ (300W should suffice but, better safe than sorry)
Optical Drive: ASUS 24X DVD Burner $21~
PC Case: APEX PC-389-C Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case $20~
Total $270 (Excluding the Operating System) capable of operating your games. Again, I do advise that you wait and add more to your budget if you can, if you cannot/don't want to, then this will surely do. Hope this was helpful Good luck.
