If you have a $400-500 what build will can you make, please let me know what build you can do in spending $400-500 that can play latest and upcoming games. High settings or better then 1366x768 resolution.


I heard about overclocking but its not an option for me maybe someday i'l try..( My reason, dont have a budget to buy cooler)
I need guide to all the pro gamers out there. :)
Anyway my budget is around 400$ - 450$

I hope you understand me guys, sorry about my English. :(

More about budget gaming read goodhearted gamers
  1. i hope someone will share some of their ideas and tips :hello: :(
  2. First of all delete that part about the OS before the forum moral police arrive.

    Secondly the i3 +H61 board option sounds good. However even at the lowish resolution you can't expect a combination of i3 and 550 Ti to play upcoming games at high or better. You really need a better GPU at least.

    The PSU is pretty bad I recommend you look at another unit.
  3. the gtx 550ti inst tht bad it can run gta 4 on hgh bf3 on high and on 1080p u can run games on medium its not tht bad

    Hello Amd or Intel is fine with me, im really happy to play medium settings or much better to high.
    Thank you :)
  8. There are case's cost $30 with a free psu 600watts, is that a good choice?. ;)
  9. maybe the phemon x4 965 or the i5 2500k
  10. what brand is the psu
  11. i think u should get tht coolermaster psu go for corsair psu
  12. skitz9417 said:

    Actually my 1st choice is the CoolMaster EXtreme 500w cost $46

    But There are some case with psu 600watts here in my country cost $30. If I'm not mistaken the brand is ATX casing. :)
  13. well try and get a corsair or antec or seasonic psu becasue coolermaster psu crap and dont hold much current and they break in 2 months and damgae ur parts
  14. No, not a $30 600 watter. Get a quality PSU.

    I made this, if your going between 400 to 500 bucks then go with AMD, which I chose the Phenom ii x4 965 black because it is a quad core and oveclockable. MSI mobo that is SLi/crossfire ready which later on will help out. 8GB os RAM at 1333 which isn't the best but at 500 bucks that really what you have to do with a 500GB HDD. Then the GPU was a 2GB vram 2GB DDR5 which was the largest at 200. this is the only thing that sent the build to 526 but i figured that you could spare 26 bucks. And NO OS because I suggest linux so that you don't spend 100 on the OS because then your hardware takes a big hit. Hope it helps
  20. sorry this is it

    an I had to get the 2GB of the 7770 b/c i forgot the PSU and now it is 46 buck over 500 but it isnt hard to make or save that much so, my bad and hope it helps
