Need a system for around $400
Apr 18, 2012, 12:07 AM
Hey I realize there are quite a few of these posts but I thought I would give it a go anyway.
So here is what I need...
A gaming desktop for around $400.
No need for: OS, keyboard, monitor, mouse, or speakers.
In terms of the games I want to be able to run...
-Starcraft2 (not looking for highest quality or anything)
You get the picture. I'm not planing on playing BF3 or anything like that.
Now I have never built my own PC but it has been something I have wanted to do for a while.
Of course I am open to a pre-built system if that would be a better deal performance wise for the cash.
Would greatly appreciate anyone kind enough to take the time to help me out!

Take a look at this build:
4GB RAM Kit
Coolermaster Elite 311.
Note though that this build should do okay with some of the newer games on low settings, but it's pretty limited in terms of upgradability.
