  3. Sadly, you will need a bigger budget to build a computer at that price.
  4. Then i ll take 300 to 400
  5. Even at that price point it isnt gonna happen. You will need a new PSU as well. $500 and maybe something can be done.

    Absolutely not, I can make you excellent recommendations for that budget, resolution and as you said, you are looking for good decent graphics quality, not super high max settings. with ~300 this is perfectly doable. I'll be back in a few minutes.
  8. You could even just use the onboard video (and upgrade later) with the build above and save $100 on the video card. You should be able to play everything on lowest at 1024 768
  9. DAMN THANKS, but i heard asus gpus having issues with bf3 on origin? and uggh wtf intel pentinum u sure?
  10. could you buy from microcenter?

  12. Microcenter doesn't have a deal for items as well as newegg.

  14. why u change thee name
  15. Because the word you had in place of the above "lousy" was not acceptable here.
  16. so no suggestions
  17. You had someone post an entire system for $421. Not sure what you mean by no suggestions. At that budget I wouldnt even try to put together a gaming PC, would be way too disappointed in the performance no matter what.
  18. i cant go no higher than 500 thats it man
  19. Then I would highly suggest you look at the build that was already quoted to you by someone who took their time to research it for you and upgrade the GPU or add a small SSD for a boot and main app drive. And yes Intel right now is the go to platform for gaming on a PC. AMDs, of which I have one and love it, are too far behind performance wise to justify purchasing the platform at any price point, unless you want the integrated graphics of the APUs.
  20. the gpu is fine but why not upgrade the cpu? whats a ssd
  21. Your budget can't support an upgraded CPU,

    solid state disk, much faster than a normal HDD
  22. my freind has the intel pentinum g620 sandy bridge he says he only gets 17 fps with a radeon 6850 on lowest everything playing bf3
  23. Be that as it may, you gave a budget, you received recomendations of what to buy based on YOUR budget. If that isnt a good enough PC for you, increase your budget or buy 2nd hand stuff.

    SUM 540$ (With 20$ MIR)

    That's the least you have to get, if you want to consider your pc a gaming one! If you want to cut down the cost I would look at a second hand 5850/4870 for around 100/70$ dollars! They can run anything with playable fps and high settings at this resolution!
