Hello I recently watched a video of a build for $250 that can run Skyrim at 30 fps (Video found here: http://teksyndicate.com/videos/build-best-cheap-ass-gam...). I have a BIOSTAR A880GZ Motherboard and I was hoping I could do something like the video did, except with this motherboard. It is important to know that I must buy a new Windows 7 Home Premium OS Disc for my build and I already have the motherboard. So the build would have $90 added to it for the OS, making his build about $350ish. Any way you guys could find the parts to let me game like this? I can't use his CPU because of the different socket, or else I would just put my motherboard in that build. My goal is to play DayZ (Arma 2 Mod) On lowest settings at 20 fps (or more). Arma II is the most CPU intensive game I own.
This is the build I kind of pieced together, can you guys improve while staying under $500?
of course yes, you miss video card on that build list
and your amd build will be perfect combination with amd fx and amd radeon 7770 card
awesome budget build
someone will tell you about intel build. you might want to hear their advices
Well I didn't "miss" the video card, That is the build I am going to be using at first, and then I am going to buy the GPU when I have enough money. I am going to cheap out and use Linux at first until I can get the Windows 7 OS as well.
