Cheap Gaming PC

So I am looking to build a good price £0-600 that can run any games on 1920x1080 at good FPS.

I already have the following,

Hard Drive
Power Supply
Keyboard
Speakers
Monitor

The games I am looking to play is like Guild Wars 2 ect, maybe battlefield but I am guessing I cannot play at high settings with my budget.

Any good builds?

  1. What psu do you have? Also do you need an os?
  2. Yeah if you post what hardware you already have that will help to suggest parts.
  3. CPU - Quad core, FX or FM2 CPU's around 120 bucks
    GPU - 550ti, 7770 HD Readon or so with 1gb+ 256bit+ around 150+
    Ram - 8gb can go fro 40+ around 1600mhz
    PSU - you wont need a big one 600watt should be fine around 150+ Raidmax is pretty good there modular psu at 750watt is 60 bucks, i got one, and had it for the past 2 years.
    Mobo - for a FX i got a askrock extreme pro 3, for a FM2 your choice
    HDD - 1tb is like 80 bucks now

    Case, and other mods is up to you.

    i could run bf3 on my old old rig with a nivida 9600gt at low settings getting 30fps, with 4gb ram at 1066mhz ddr2, and a phoneme quad core at 3.2

    With a FM2 CPU, its actually a APU, it comes with a 6700 series GPU so you might not need a GPU

    so you can get something that runs bf3 pretty cheap but not a the highest settings, and gw2, ive heard it uses alot of cpu usage. so its up to you.

    NO NO NO NO NO NO - Raidmax power supplies are awful awful awful. I've had them and seen them blow up, short out, short on cables, the construction and build quality suck, you name it. There's no words to describe how crappy they are. The 550TI is not worth purchasing anymore.

    You can't generalize on builds like this when people come here looking for specifics.
  7. With this you can play all games on high-ultra settings http://pcpartpicker.com/uk/p/nIYv
    But your psu might not be good enough. I don't know if you want to oc the cpu or add a second 7950 for a crossfire setup later. If you don't want to do one or both of those I could make a different build that would save you a lot and maybe fit in an os if you need one. Also you could go with a cheaper case to make room for shipping costs.

    I already have an OS, this build does look good. I am not planning to go crossfire or SLI, also my PSU is 750watts
  11. What is important is the exact brand and model of psu.

    I was thinking this because it is a good brand, also GPU I heard that 7000 series has recently had a update that doubles the performance?
  14. This is just something cheap as i dont know the conversion rate. It all came from new egg and can be upgraded later (processor graphics) if needed or you get the money etc.


    CPU :Intel Core i5-3330 3.0GHz (3.2GHz Turbo) LGA 1155 Quad-Core Desktop Processor
    $189.99


    GPU: GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 660 GV-N660OC-2GD Video Card
    $239.99


    Power Supply: CORSAIR Builder Series CX500 V2 500W Power Supply
    $69.99


    Case : NZXT Source 210 Elite White Computer Case w/ Black Front Trim
    $49.99


    Ram: G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory
    $39.99


    MoBo : ASRock Z75 Pro3 ATX Intel Motherboard
    $84.99

    674.94 plus s&h USD

    This is all from new egg and i figure it should atleast be comparable.

    Sorry im not used to the symbol your using, is that the british pound? according to google if that is the british pound this should run you about
    425.72

    I think its a nice base to build on however.

    You will need a new power supply. Most Dell power supplies are made for their form factors not standard ones.
