I think it's kind of ridicolous that I use an old laptop as a desktop with a 32" screen, so I decided to get a desktop. However, the prices in this country are insane, there's no possibility of getting a computer with dedicated graphic card under 1000$ and my budget is at most 700$
So i decided to build my own computer, but again the prices for components are insane too.
So far I've picked:
Case: Advance Turboost 8702
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-870A-UD3
Processor: AMD Athlon II X3 450
RAM:Corsair Vengeance DDR3-1600 4 GB
Graphic card: Asus Radeon HD 6670 1GB Silent
Power supply: Don't know yet
Harddisk: Western Digital AV-GP 250 GB SATA
I lack some components, and I would be gratefull if someone could give some suggestions on what to change and what to add.
I just need a budget PC that doesn't lag horribly when I try to play games like Starcraft II or World of Tank on standard settings. I'm getting a bit tired of FPS lagging just because of some smoke on the screen.
Yeah that's the problem with my country. They demand alot of money on tax. Last time I ordered something abroad, it nearly doubled in price when it arrived. The tax fees just for "safekeeping" the item while in custody is bloody 40 usd.
Oh and to reply to JDW's recommendations:
in my country the prices are:
CPU - AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition Deneb 3.2GHz $120
Motherboard - ASUS M5A97 AM3+ AMD 970 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 - both don't exist
VGA - EVGA 560 TI 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 $ around 350-400
PSU - PC Power and Cooling Silencer Mk II PPCMK2S650 650W ATX12V v2.2 / EPS12V $200
CASE - COOLER MASTER Centurion 5 CAC-T05-UB Black /Blue Aluminum Bezel $100
RAM - CORSAIR XMS3 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 $80-100
DVD - LITE-ON DVD Burner - non existing
HDD - SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 1TB $80
Full Price without motherboard and dvd burner:
930 USD, way over my budget.
For privacy reasons I don't really want to state the country
In my country Apple products get 2.5 tax rate while PC parts get 4.0 tax rate. Its cheaper to buy a mac and install windows. Check that out of curiosity.
Otherwise order online at ebay. In my country, pc parts that are $50 or less wanst suposed to get tax, but they dont respect that law. Anyway, the number of pc components would be very limited. Maybe you may order some used parts, if you are ok with it. Im not, unless its processor, hard drive or memory.
Everything worked fine except the bloody PSU. Why would a computer build have a PSI-e slot and 8gb ram if its PSU is max 300w?
Anyway, is it possible to use a graphic card that requires auxiliary powers without adding the auxiliary power? Or will the card overload the motherboard?
