Basically what I would like is a computer that can run the games with decent or low graphics, I don't care, as long as I can play.I'm wanting to play some Day-Z with friends in the upcoming months or you know some of that fortnite. So what I would like to do is build a pc that is pretty freaking good but mad cheap, via rebates and super sales and all that. Honestly, I'd like some $1k total value pc for $200-$300 dollars. I don't mind waiting for sales. What I need to know is how could I ever possibly be this dirt cheap and get a good pc? Where would I look? How do I get this? Thanks Guys for your help.
I'm in the process of trying to build a super cheap home server, and I've discovered that eBay and local listings (like ksl.com) are goldmines! It takes a bit of browsing over time, but so far I've purchased:
Cooler Master Centurion 5 (Full ATX): $25
AMD Phenom X3 8400 (2.1 GHz triple core): $20
Parts from old computers:
430W PSU (too lazy to look up brand and model)
CD/DVD RW drve: (same as above)
So far, I've spent less than $50 and I'm at a good start. Maybe you could try either of those options?
