Solved 600-750 budget build for gaming Tags: Build Gaming Systems Product Last response: July 6, 2012 9:35 PM in Systems Share iwhit123 July 5, 2012 9:16:18 PM Hi, I am a first time poster here and was looking for some ideas on the best bang for my buck for around 700$ u.s dollars. I plan to use the pc for gaming: BF3, Dota2, metro 2033.. and whatever else down the line that I decide to play. In addition to gaming I plan to use the pc for watching movies and using photoshop. Things I already have.. -monitor -keyboard -mouse -speakers -have OS through university program HDMI and all the movie watching necessities Criteria: -looking to overclock -maximize my money for optimal gaming performance -doesn't need to look pretty -hopefully be able to play all releases for atleast a few years to come. I have about 600$ to spend as well as a 150$ gift card to best buy and I am hoping to spend no more than 650$ not including the gift card. I am not super up to date on the best bang for your buck hardware and some insight would be awesome. Thanks in advance. - More about : 600 750 budget build gaming TheBigTroll a b 4 Gaming July 5, 2012 11:27:26 PM id wait until ivy bridge i3s to come out first to get more bang for the buck nevertheless i put together a build under 650$ that is capable of running games at high/ultra. it wont overclock though but it can still destroy cpus at the same price point overclocked http://pcpartpicker.com/p/bswd iwhit123 July 6, 2012 3:57:00 PM Forgot to mention I have OS so i can save 100$ that way.
