Basically depending on my financial situation, I am either building a 500$ Computer, Or a 700$ computer.
I am 14 and starting a job at mcdonalds soon. Bottom line Is i may make 50$ a week, resulting in 200$ a month after taxed 180. And then tythe leaving me with 150$ Or i could make more. I just dont know.
But if i dont make much say an extreme of 100 a month. I would need to get the 500$ Computer.
Basically My goal with this computer is to have a pc that can run BF3 medium settings 1600x900 resolution. Or max out MW3, MW2, MW1, COD2,COD1,WAW
I think this computer would do it. Bottom line is my budget is 500$, I would just like to know if it looks compatible, or if you could throw a better one together, that meets the needs stated above. Thanks for your time and godbless.
$400 for components + a copy of windows is a tight budget .
Athlon X3 $70
AM3+ mb with AMD760g chipset $60
2 x2 gig of RAM $22
500 gig hard drive $85
Corsair cx 430 psu $25
dvd drive $18
6770 graphics $90
+ a case ...... at around $30 . Some of the Rosewill m-ATX cases work well
This is what I could come up with for a $500 build - doesn't include Windows but the CPU is blazing fast for the price. There's two options - if you want the best performance for the money get the Intel G620. If you want better bang-for-buck go with the AMD A8. The A8 will provide that option better as you can eliminate the graphics card for now and run it off the built-in 6670 GPU on the CPU.
This option won't give you a central graphics card as it runs one off the built-in graphics chip but you could do that and save money until you can get a better GPU. But you also get a bigger hard drive in this deal.
