500-600 gaming build. Tags: Build Gaming Systems Product Last response: October 10, 2012 7:32 AM in Systems Share lucidrainbow October 10, 2012 5:09:46 AM Hi, I was wondering if these parts are decent for the price. I am looking to build a PC for Gaming(Borderlands 2, Skyrim, BO2, SC2) and light photo and video editing with Adobe CS5. Here is my current partslist. http://pcpartpicker.com/p/jTD1 I found the i5-2500k at microcenter for 159.99 Also, would there be a way to get similar performance but cheaper? The cheaper the better!
