Hi, i'm looking to build myself a cheap but not crappy computer. I want beaing able to play games like diablo 3, company of heroes and civ 5. I will also do some photo editing, nothing fancy only basic photoshop elements stuff. This computer will also be suse for web browsing and for office work. The least I pay the better it is ! Let's say 600$ or less. I do live in Canada.
The only thing i've got is a monitor (Asus PA238Q, 23 inch 1080p). I know that I will need Windows (7 or 8 ?). I don't know about choosing between an i3 or a quad core amd.
Thanks a lot for your help !
Not trying to be mean but this build is pretty bad.
-the CPU is old and not very good.
-the GPU won't even play games at low settings at 1080p
-you don't need a sound card
-your ram is single channel
-an SSD on this budget is not a good idea (waste of money)
Get this instead. It will play games at medium/high settings and be upgradeable in the future.
