Game development for under $900

Hello,

I am trying to find a computer that will handle 3d rendering, and programming applications well. I would also like it to handle MMO's with the best possible graphics under these conditions.

I am a game software programming student, my biggest issue is that I am not sure if I should consentrate on RAM or the graphics card.

    It has a good amount of vram and the processing power to make a good combination for your 3Drendering.

    The total for this build is $912.92 and this is what you can get for this price , you can of course go with it or swap out parts as you see fit , it is your Pc build and you can get what is going to suit your needs. You can pick up a student OS at a much cheaper price then at the online stores.
