Budget gaming build $550-$700 Tags: New Build Systems Last response: February 3, 2012 2:10 PM in Systems Share jason_1234 February 3, 2012 1:59:49 PM Hey everyone this is my first build, i am a pretty big noob in terms of knowledge with parts. I have compiled a list of what i was looking at Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. and would paying more money now be worth it in the long-run? thanks. Approximate Purchase Date: not sure, either pretty soon or this summer. Budget Range: 550-700 before rebates System Usage from Most to Least Important: gaming, surfing web and that's about it Parts Not Required: need about everything as its gonna be a whole new computer mouse. keyboard and OS aren't a problem though (will probably get linux or ubuntu) Preferred Website(s) for Parts: http://www.canadacomputers.com maybe newegg if shipping is cheap/free Country: Canada Parts Preferences:none really but i have more knowledge on the AMD HD series for gpus Overclocking: If it's worth it SLI or Crossfire: no Monitor Resolution: Doesn't really matter. Additional Comments: Quiet would be nice, but not that important. I usually play games like minecraft and WoW, but I do wish to play high graphic games like bf3 and skyrim.
