Hey guys, I'm trying to custom build a gaming pc and I'm having no luck. I want to be playing games like Arma 2 (DayZ), Fallout, Battlefield Call of Duty, Left 4 Dead, GTA and many more games like them while sustaining a very good FPS level and no lag. My budget for this PC is between £500 - £750. Thanks guys. :)

It sounds like you want to build a high spec machine on a shoestring budget. I can help (as can other also) but frst you need to set a realistic price range more in the 800-900 range (before monitor and mouse/keyboard).

I'm not looking to run these games on ultra settings, just decent settings with minimal lag. Would that be possible? Thanks anyway. :)

Hi :) 

I will give you the same advice I give customers in my shops who want a gaming machine...

You spend 50% of your total budget on the graphics card..... then work from there on the rest...

All the best Brett :)
