-Apex SK-393-C ATX Mid Tower Case - $24.15
-Asus M4N68T-M V2 Micro ATX AM3 Motherboard - $56.34
-AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor - $89.99
-Apevia 500W ATX Power Supply - $39.99 ($20 mail-in rebate)
-Samsung SH-222BB/BEBE DVD/CD Writer - $17.99
-PowerColor Radeon HD 7750 1GB Video Card - $99.98
-Corsair Vengeance 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR3-1600 Memory - $27.98
-Total (before mail-in rebates): $410.40



Feel free to put together an AMD build that is possibly better than this for no more than $400 (give or take $10)

Honestly if i can't run CoD games (my main purpose for the build) at 60fps then i might aswell get a console and run it at 60fps. BUT i really don't want to so help me out.

The big question: Will this build run cod black ops 2 at 60 fps at atleast medium settings?

Thanks in advance!!

That power supply is not very good. Actually, its kinda terrible.

Are you set for AMD? Because personally its not that Intel is quicker, its just that their cheaper processors are....well....cheaper and have the same performance, like the Pentium G850.

It would then allow for a better graphics card in the budget.

Recommend a build from pc parts for me? This is my first build and need some options. Recommend another PSU for around the same price? Remember that i just want to run CoD at 60fps.

From what I've heard you could run CoD on a toaster, this shouldn't be too difficult.

I agree with using the Pentium, same gaming performance as the Phenom for less money. Also agree with using a better PSU, Corsair CX-430 is good and pretty cheap.

The HD 7750 should be fine in terms of graphics, you might even get ultra high on CoD.

Is the pentium g850 actually good for gaming and will it give me good fps with all those other specs you gave me? because i really like your build that you gave me i so. i will be able to save up an upgrade up to a i5 in like 7 months. i just hope itll run cod at 60fps.

Yeah it performs basically the same as the Phenom (in games) at stock settings while consuming less than half the power.
