Budget Gaming Rig Tags: New Build Gaming Monitors Systems Product Last response: June 13, 2012 8:42 PM in Systems Share Jabez June 13, 2012 8:10:20 PM I'm trying to put together a viable gaming rig on a short budget. Here is the relevant info: Approximate Purchase Date: next couple months Budget Range: $550-700 System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, Net Surfing, Streaming Parts Not Required: Hard Drive (it's SATA and 500gb), DVD Burner (case = maybe), monitor. Preferred Website(s) for Parts: no specific Country: US Parts Preferences: none specific Overclocking: No SLI or Crossfire: No Monitor Resolution: 1024x768 right now, might upgrade later. Additional Comments: Rig must be able to handle Crysis on medium settings. Would like to last 3-4 years with a bit of upgrading. I like to game but I'm not a graphics nut, if that info helps.
