I'm doing my first build, and my budget is $500. I'm planning to eventually upgrade my computer slowly over time, but this is it for now. I want the cheapest setup possible that can run Arma II. I don't know anything at all on what motherboards, graphics cards, or PSUs I should get. Help?
where are you located?
also what is your budget on the gpu? or i guess how much more can you spend?
With the GPU, I'm thinking something that can run games, but I don't need an insanely good and expensive gpu that can handle all of those crazy insane lighting mods. With that said, I recently bought Magicka on steam, wanting to play it, when the game wouldn't even open because my graphics card was so bad.
I just want to play games. I don't want the best graphics, I can always upgrade later if I do want those.
That being said, I want the graphics cards that are cheap, but at least can run games on medium to low graphics settings.
I have $250 left, and I still need to get a motherboard, a PSU, and a graphics card. (I have windows 7 already)
The 2500K is not one I would recommend, only because I'm pretty sure they actually don't make it anymore.
Do you need Windows for the computer?
I'm pretty sure they still make 2500k's. I also just want a cheap *ss set-up, something that can run games at 30 fps on medium to low graphics settings. I can upgrade later when I have more money to spend.
