Hello

Im a complete noob at building PCs so would like help from knowledgeable and experienced people.

Main reason why I want to build a gaming PC is to DayZ so any help will be very appreciated.

I have very small budget £300-£400 ($650) so will be using dated components something like GTS 450 or HD6670 or preferably HD 6850.

Will need:

CPU
Motherboard
RAM
GPU
PSU
CASE and if necessary a fan cooler.

Hi :) 

Add another £70 to £80 for an operating system...and a dvd/cd drive....

Not really enough money...as we say to our customers , who want a gaming machine...you NEED to spend 50% of your budget on the graphics card alone...


All the best Brett :)

Do you have any salvaged parts? If you can salvage an HDD and DVD drive, you've saved $100/~£63.

If not, I'd suggest an i3/Phenom II x4 and 4GB of RAM. A 7750 or 6770 or even 7770 will be good.

yeap I can salvage a hard drive and dvd rom, what about mother board and cooler? Also i want to get at least 5.1 surround sound and wifi will I need to get separate cards or do they come with motherboard?

I was looking at these 2 cards Pentium G870 or Core i3-2120, really want to get quad core.

Is it an prebuilt PC like HP, Dell, etc.?

If so, don't salvage the mobo and cooler.
For 5.1 and WiFi, yes, you'll need cards.
You can get a Phenom II x4 or i5 2400/i5 2500. Great cheap quad-cores.
