I'm looking to build a new gaming PC. Sadly, my Dell XPS M1530 notebook got rained on a while back and has tragically passed away. Since I'm a gamer, I'd like to get something decent (and an upgrade from my old system, because I've been missing out on a few games I'd like to finally get to play). The problem is that I have a rather small budget. Here's hoping you fellows can help out!
Approximate Purchase Date: within the next few weeks
Budget Range: 300-350 before shipping
System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, Internet, Movies, administrative
Are you buying a monitor: No.
Do you need to buy OS: Yes
Additional Comments: As said, performance is not very important. As far as graphical performance goes, I looked into maybe getting an AMD A8-3850 because the integrated GPU makes for pretty good value, performance-wise I think that'd be pretty acceptable.
Im building one that costs 491$ with an os. I can find parts on amazon used really cheap. I'm using a pentium g630 with a gtx 550 ti. The ti cost 90$. The pentium 63$. This will run most games on high at 40 fps or so.
