Hello, i am looking to build a new rig in the near future. I recently sold my old rig a few months ago to help pay for school and would like to build a new rig on a budget so i can play games when i have free time when im not studying. my old pc had a 2500k, hd 6870. i would like to build a quad core gaming machine that has similar specs if possible.
