Hello, I'm an experienced builder but I have been stumped on a good quality build that I can play games on but also doesn't cost over 400

    Good thing you already have a HDD but honestly you should really be open to the AMD/ATI route and for other brands like ASROCK for your mobo with the budget you have. Also Newegg may have better deals than Tiger as well. Lets see what other people can come up with too.
  3. Hey so I appreciate the build u made but i found a barebones kit for only $285 w/ MIR.

    If you could check it out and see what you think I would greatly appreciate that too. I was mostly wondering what you think about the computer case/psu combo that comes with it. That is the only part I am concerned with. Thank you!
  4. it's a pretty decent barebone kit there
