I agree with DG walker

Save up until black friday or something

I know for sure that newegg offers 50% on most of it computer parts.

Build your computer that fits your budget

SO right now stick with waht you have and wait till you can get to atleast 800-1000 dollars to get an adequate computer that can last you 3 years before its out of date.

1500 will get you a nice computer that can last way longer and can use dx11 on its video and get you some awesome graphics.


I have a 560ti and i love it. Never look back
I have 3 screens and i have 2 of 2g 560ti

I spent over 3000 bucks to make my dream computer and it was worth

im not telling you to spent 3k on a computer maybe 1k would get u an okay computer that can perform great in games, but the more you spend the better youll get out of it

at current prices and technology a good budget to shoot for to be able to get higher end gaming computer but not just waste money on new technology

1200 - for a good AMD rig
1500 - for a good INTEL rig

thats what i would tell someone to work towards to get a good mid-high end computer that is upgradable in the future.

Thanks for all the help guys! The only problem I have is that I need a computer NOW. My old laptop died and I'm now using an old computer I borrowed from a friend that can barely surf the web. I had no idea it took this much cash to make a good gaming pc so now that I know that I think I can get a $600 budget. I just need something that can play some games like minecraft, killing floor, tf2 on decent settings and can also record with a HD Capture card for console games. So could someone maybe make something on here for me that could do that? Or would it be cheaper to buy all the parts on NewEgg and make it myself? Although I've never done that so if its hard I wouldn't be able to do it. Also I don't really care if its out of date for crazy games like starcraft or crysis 2 in a year because I will be investing in an actual good computer in that amount of time. But for now I'm just trying to get the most bang for my buck. Thanks.

Here's the best I could do using the Gamer Ultra 7500 as a base:

  • *BASE_PRICE: [+685]
  • CAS: CoolerMaster Elite 430 Mid-Tower Gaming Case with Side Panel Window [-11]
  • CD: Asus BC-12B1ST 12X Blu-Ray Combo DVDRW Drive [+0] (BLACK COLOR)
  • CPU: AMD A6-3650 2.60 GHz Quad-Core APU w/ Integrated Radeon HD 6530D [-26]
  • CS_FAN: Default case fans
  • FAN: AMD ATHLON64 CERTIFIED CPU FAN & HEATSINK [-20]
  • FREEBIE_CU1: FREE! DiRT 3 Game [+0]
  • FREEBIE_CU2: FREE! Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 [+0]
  • FREEBIE_CU3: FREE! AMD 4GB MP3 Audio Digital Player [+0]
  • HDD: 500GB SATA-II 3.0Gb/s 16MB Cache 7200RPM HDD [-16] (Single Hard Drive)
  • IUSB: Built-in USB 2.0 Ports
  • KEYBOARD: Xtreme Gear (Black Color) Multimedia/Internet USB Keyboard
  • MEMORY: 4GB (2GBx2) DDR3/1600MHz Dual Channel Memory Module [-43] (Corsair XMS Gaming Memory with Heatsink Spreader)
  • MOTHERBOARD: [CrossFireX] MSI A75MA-G55 Chipset AMD Dual Graphics Support DDR3 Socket FM1 mATX w/ UEFI Bios, OC Genie, Winki 3 & 7.1 HD Audio, GbLAN, HDMI, USB3.0, SATA-III RAID, 2 Gen2 PCIe X16, 1 PCIe X1 & 1 PCI
  • MOUSE: XtremeGear Optical USB 3 Buttons Gaming Mouse
  • MULTIVIEW: Non-SLI/Non-CrossFireX Mode Supports Multiple Monitors
  • NETWORK: Onboard Gigabit LAN Network

  • SERVICE: STANDARD WARRANTY: 3-YEAR LIMITED WARRANTY PLUS LIFE-TIME TECHNICAL SUPPORT
  • SOUND: HIGH DEFINITION ON-BOARD 7.1 AUDIO
  • VIDEO: AMD Fusion APU onboard [-69]
  • _PRICE: (+591)

The price with shipping would come to $666 and it has a $30 MIR.  Right now you'd have to use the onboard graphics but you can add a card later on.

Thanks for that, I think I could make that. I have a question about the CPU though. Is that a newer model line because the only ones I've ever seen are the Athlon, Phenom, Sempron, etc. Also how hard is it to replace integrated graphics cards? Or is it any different from replacing a dedicated one? Thanks.

This will last 3 years
It has good psu, cpu and cooler, as well as a good graphics card.

you get 50 dollars back in rebate

also includes 3 free games and an mp3
Includes
Dirt 3
Modern Warfare 2
Shogun 2

This is better than Kalidor835 ;s choice in my opinion becuase of price to power ratio and what games it includes. Youre get 100 dollars worth of free games and mp3

no that computer is not better acash1997 you got to understand thats NOT a good vid card
 
the one built in to the cpu is eather a 6530 or 6550 so buying a 6570 for $76 is a VERY bad idea the difference between then is VERY small and hoenstly more then likly not even somthing you would notice
 
HD 6530D 320cores at 443Mhz
HD 6550D 400cores at 600Mhz
AMD 6570  480 cores at 650Mhz
 
ya its more powerfull but its still WEAK thats not a gaming vid card the low end gaming vid card is the
 
AMD 6850 960cores at 775Mhz
 
thats the LOW end of ok vid cards the one i really think is good for gaming is the AMD 6950 if your going to use AMD at all that is it has
 
AMD 6950 1408 cores at 800Mhz
 
if he wants to use Kalidor835 build but change the cpu for the higher one with the 6550 instead of the one Kalidor835 is useing thats not a bad idea but really he needs to save money a buy a REAL vid card for gaming
Intel i7-920@3.2Ghz
