Tto get into PC gaming with 450-500 dollar budget.

Hey guys, I'm a console player and I'm looking at PC gaming right now. I don't have a big budget and I'm looking to buy one this week. I have no clue as to how to build a PC and which components are good. So I'm asking for your help, to find me a PC that can run high settings, I think ultra would be unrealistic for my budget.

    Really? Because I've seen some pretty reasonable PC's that ran games on high. Like the guy review tech usa had a pretty decent rig for cheap.
  3. You aren't going to get anything if you are trying to get a monitor, keyboard, mouse, and speakers as a part of that budget.

    Tiny bit over budget but should handle any modern game on high settings easily.
