$400 Budget Gaming PC

Approximate Purchase Date: Beginning of March.

Budget Range: $400, before rebates.

System Usage from Most to Least Important: MMO gaming (WoW, SWTOR), surfing the web.

Parts Not Required: Keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers, hard drive, OS.

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Newegg.com, however I'm open to other sites if a good deal is available.

Country: United States.

Parts Preferences: No preferences, can't really afford them.

Overclocking: Maybe in the future after buying a CPU cooler.

SLI or Crossfire: Not possible with $400.

Monitor Resolution: I'll be fine with anything above 800x600. Not expecting BF3 maxed 1920x1080 with this build lol.

Additional Comments: I know $400 isn't much for a gaming pc, but considering that I already have multiple parts, I was hoping the more experienced builders out there could help me out with some good deals/combos. Hoping to play WoW and SWTOR on high-max settings if possible.

  2. awesome build bu sosofm, just for now, i will go with the single 4gb stick as in furture, he can upgrade to 8gb because current games do benefit from it.

  3. if you could put in 40 more dollars http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814161384 switch to that for your graphics
  4. 6850 will be great if raise the budget.
  5. Thanks very much guys. I'll most likely go with Sosofm's build and upgrade the video card later on, and psu if needed. Still, thanks to all three of you for taking the time to help me out.
