Need Gaming PC Build HELP!

I've been trying to get all the parts together to create a new gaming pc for myself. I've spent hours looking for the best way to create a gaming pc. I found out about PCPartPicker. I started to use it and i think i have everything I need in order to create a pc. I do not want to spend over $400 on this PC. Please let me know if the parts I have are capable to run together. Thank you.

  1. your link does not work for me
  2. Oh my... that is.... much less than a desirable PC to even think about using. This is what I have whipped together for you...

    As a matter of fact, I can't whip anything up for you as your budget is WAY to low. If it was $400 for the build, minus the monitors & windows, sure I could. But with it that likes only $220 for a gaming PC. With that amount of cash, you are looking at a very sluggish HTPC, not even anywhere close to playing much of any games at all.

    if the OS is removed, what do you recommend i get?

    If you want the monitor in your build, just don't crossfire the 7660D with the 6770. Getting rid of the extra video card should leave enough money left for your budget.

    I don't have my own monitor at the moment. I just have a laptop, so I need a monitor in the build, so what should i do to keep the build at 400 with the monitor included?
  6. It really doesn't matter. If you CF the APU & the 6670, you are only looking at a ~20% gain performance wise.

    so what parts should i get including the monitor for under or at $400?
  8. The same... Just don't get the 6670.

    this is what I have so far. Anyway to drop the price a little to try to get it close to $400?

  10. BTW, you are doing your BBCode wrong. You have to place something between the ] and [ like Your Build or just post the link, as it's easier.
  11. ^^ You don't need a sound card. Drop that.

    Get rid of the PoS Logisys PSU, replace it with a CX430

    Then get rid of the 6670, like I've said numerous times, and you should be right around on budget.

    I did everything you said and now i have this http://pcpartpicker.com/p/pdL3
    Is there anyway I could get a video card in there and keep it around $450?
  13. I guess get this CPU instead
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819113282

    But I don't know if sacrificing so much CPU power for a video card is worth it though.

    Instead of sacrificing that much cpu how about this? http://pcpartpicker.com/parts/partlist/
  16. BreadWhistle, keep something in mind... the A10 is actually a decent graphics card mixed with a cpu. If you pair it with very fast ram, it'll actually perform as well as the sorts of discrete cards you'd be using anyways.
  17. I, myself would just go without a video card, as you listed above ^^^

    Then save up some cash and by a 7850 or a GTX 650ti

    I know, but he is on a terribly tight budget, so I just thought I'd just use regular spec'd memory.

    I know that i should save my money in order to get a better video card, but what is a cheap and decent video card that I could use for a while until i have enough money for a better video card?

  20. The integrated video in the A10 5800K is pretty good actually.
  21. Yep, that's what I was trying to tell you, but I got the names mixed up. :P The A10 will serve your needs as long as it has to - IT is your cheap and decent video card.

    It will run anything you throw at it really, BF3 multiplayer is the only thing it won't run, If you spent a little more on a 7770 you could get even better performance, also get the monitor with the 5ms respose time, DO NOT get the 16ms one, the few dollars extra are worth it.

  31. If you ask me you shouldn't really even be trying to buy a PC on this budget
  32. BreadWhistle said:

    Yeah I kinda agree, You need at least $450 and that's not including a monitor, to build something good, but this is what OP asked for.

    I understand that it would be more ideal to have a larger budget, but i do not. I feel like the build I have right now gives me the most bang for my buck. Let me know how I can improve my current build http://pcpartpicker.com/p/pe0M
