Need Help Building Budget Gaming PC Tags: New Build Gaming Systems Product Last response: June 19, 2012 7:52 AM in Systems Share Justin0521 June 19, 2012 3:42:02 AM Approximate Purchase Date: As soon as possible Budget Range: $500-580 Before Rebates (Including OS) System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, Surfing the web Parts Not Required: Monitor, Mouse, Speakers, Keyboard Preferred Website(s) for Parts: newegg.com, but am willing to purchase from amazon.com as well, if the price is cheaper. Country: United States Parts Preferences: I don't really mind, but just would like to get the best bang for my buck. Also, I will be using Windows 7 Home Professional 64-Bit for my OS. Overclocking: No, first build so do not really understand it. SLI or Crossfire: No, would probably take me out of my price range. Monitor Resolution: Probably a lower resolution, still unsure. Additional Comments: I would like this PC to be able to play games such as Minecraft, Skyrim, Diablo III, as well as maybe some lower quality games. ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ This will be my first build, so all tips are appreciated, and I will consider all builds within my budget. Thank you in advance.
