Looking for a budget build ~600 Tags: Homebuilt Gaming Build Systems Product Last response: November 6, 2012 3:16 PM in Systems Share bahoward November 6, 2012 5:12:08 AM Hello, I'm looking for a budget build that will be able to play Skyrim, SC2, and Diablo III. My current laptop can't even handle any of them on low, so any improvement is really better. I will be running this on 1080, maybe lower if need be. My os will be windows 7 for gaming, and I'll be running everything else on Linux. So I guess my main question is I'm not really sure where to start. Purchase Date: Sometime with in the month. Budget Range: ~500-600 Uses: Gaming, movies, schoolwork. Already have a monitor Will purchase OS from University(dirt cheap) parts preference: I would like to stick with intel processor, and AMD GPU Upgrading because my laptop sucks hardcore, and would like a desktop that I could do some gaming on.
