Budget gaming pc build

Hi all, I am relitively new to the PC game and am looking to build my first budget gaming pc. I have already made some attempts at shopping online for parts, but it resulted in alot of confusion.

My budget is about $600 (including OS). I was thinking maybe an i3 doesn't have to be a mega fast CPU, just something that will get me by in games with reasonable FPS (25-30). I don't intend of playing alot of high end game, but having the option would be nice.

I live in Australia, so some sites that ship to here would be very helpful.

Thanks heaps - Milo

Unfortunately I can offer any sites to help you as I'm in the UK, but I can show you the Budget System Tom's Hardware built which comes with FPS benchmarks of how it performs.


Really, if you build off the top of that so maybe upgrade the CPU or MoBo as you have $100 over the budget you could increase the FPS by a bit.

Hope I helped!

Okay, thanks. Would the computer still run the same if I used second hand parts?
