I am building a budget gaming pc. I am poor college student so im strapped for cash always. I want the pc to be able to play any game smoothly, I do not care about the graphics. I have a video card that will hold me over for a bit until i can upgrade so recommendations on a vid card would be appreciated. I also have a 1TB HDD in a external that just needs to be taken out of its case and reformatted.
When i chose the mobo i made sure it had 6gbs and usb3. Also i chose the psu to have just enough for a vid card upgrade. I really want to keep my budget under $300.
So in short will this pc do everything i want?
I suggested AMD, because,there was a great offer going, and a quad core was good enough to have done most task including gaming. I know the i3 intel chip are better in power consumption and gaming, this this way seemed cheaper.
Now here's a revised intel build, which includes a good GPU within this budget :
