Hey guys I would like some help. This is my first time building a pc and I would like it to all go smoothly. I would like to know the best things to buy for a gaming pc, it will be purely for gaming, the only downside is I only have 350/450 bucks to spend, is this possible to build? If so please leave a reply with the specs

Check these links and the first posts to get an idea of what kind of system you should look at (you can mix match with video card...)


For that price range i think you should go with AMD (look at the amd link below for more detailed builds)



AMD Usually better value

INTEL Usually better performance
