Gamming PC for 400$

Hello everybody, I am new to building a pc, but at my country pc's costs twice more than other countries.

Approximate Purchase Date: 2012 january

Budget Range:300$ - 400$ 50$ +-

System Usage from Most to Least Important: gaming, surfing the internet and sometimes movies

Parts Not Required: keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers, OS windows 7 - all of this i have bought.

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: all websites, just don't want shipment to cost much (country shipping to Lithuania/europe country near poland and russia)


Parts Preferences: by brand or type : I don't know, i just need a good pc that can run assassins creed games, battlefield 3 on high quality (always wanted to play on ultra on 1440x900 resolution if it is possable :) )

Overclocking: Maybe (the thing is if it is dangerous or could damage all pc or shorten pc work time then no)

SLI or Crossfire: Yes / No / Maybe (what is it? :D)

Monitor Resolution: not sure, but i have a screen that can play games at 800x600, 1024x768, 1280x1024, 1440x900

Additional Comments: less maintenance and maybe quiter, but if thats not an option then just don't look at this line :)

Sorry for bad english! :)

  1. SLI or Crossfire is when you have more than one graphics card, basically. Overclocking is not dangerous if you have good cooling and power.

    At $400, I really don't think you will be able to play BF3 on high, maybe low-medium.

    I'd go for an AMD setup, here are some parts.

    CPU : AMD Athlon X3 455 ($75-85)
    Graphics: AMD Radeon HD 5670 ($65-80)
    MoBo: BIOSTAR TA790GXE 128M AM2+/AM3 ($90)
  2. $400 is tight, especially with hard drives running about $100.

    I don't know of any lithuanian sites, so I can only speculate.

    I'd suggest a Llano build:
    A8 - 3850: $140
    A55 Motherboard: $60
    8 GB DDR3-1600: $35
    500 GB HDD: $100
    Antec Basiq 350W PSU: $40
    DVD drive: $15
    Basic case w/120mm fans: $40

    $430 or so.

    this will handle most games at medium-high settings at 1680x1050
  3. Is this a weird coincidence, or are you the same person as in A lot of the text is in common
  4. The quality of English is worse here lol
