Need a system for around $400 Tags: New Build Systems Last response: April 18, 2012 11:29 PM in Systems Share Seaham April 18, 2012 12:07:01 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) -Dota2 -TF2 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!

Coolermaster Elite 311. Total $449.93 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. | Report abuse GI_JONES April 18, 2012 1:38:50 AM $400 doesnt get you much of a computer..and even less of a gaming computer | Report abuse Seaham April 18, 2012 10:17:40 PM Thanks all | Report abuse kelthic April 18, 2012 11:29:09 PM No problem, i hope this build works for you! | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Systems>Need a system for around $400> Related ressources: ForumNew system for around 400 $ after tax and shipping ForumI want to build a new system , around $ 400 -$600.
