Hello guys I am in a deep problem. I need help! I am a 16 year old boy who wants to buy a new gaming computer I want to play games like Dota 2, Need For Speed, Tomb Raider, Prototype 2, all the newest versions of these games require a good strong gaming computer, but unfortunately my computer was a birthday gift from my parents when I was 7 years old and frankly I'm surprised it still works. I can play almost all of these games on it but at the lowest quality and it still isn't smooth. I'm tired of losing games and playing frame by frame I want a NEW computer and also my budget is 500-600 euros I want 8GB RAM and the best graphic chip I can find for this budget. Please help me by telling me which is the best gaming computer for me that can support my needs.
Best Regards,
Ivan.

You're not going to afford an i7, but probably an i5

for a better value, consider an amd fx-6300.

Well then lets make it an i5 whatever no problem for me.


yeah, for your budget, you'd get more graphics performance in a fx-6300 / gtx 760 combo than any i5 combo. getting an i5 decreases your gpu budget and doesn't compensate enough with more cpu performance.

lxgoldsmith's build is 600 pounds and it seems to run with an i5 and GTX 760.

I tried fitting an in i5 in, but that would require using less storage and a drop in the quality of the build.
