So you're a console gamer and you have seen the next gen consoles, but aren't that impressed by them. Well welcome to the world of PC gaming the first thing you'll need is a PC to run the games. So instead of buy the Xbone you now have $500 here's what to buy.
First off we have the CPU. For this build i went with a AMD Athlon II X4 750K Quad-Core Processor.
I went with that because it's overclock able, it's cheap, and it's GOOD.
Secondly is the motherboard. The motherboard i chose is Asus A55BM-E Micro ATX FM2+.
Yes it is a M-ATX but this makes it cheaper and you can replace it whenever you feel like.
Ok so now for the GPU (video card). I picked this video card because at this price you'll be hard pressed to find something that beats it. So i chose the EVGA GeForce GTX 660.
This card is just wonderful, at about $160 this card will eat a GTX 650 TI for breakfast, lunch, and dinner on the same day.
Next up is the RAM (memory). This one i went with the cheapest 8GB's of RAM I could find. So i found the A-Data XPG V1.0 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600.
This RAM is cheap (as of today's prices) and is from a well known company making it a good buy.
Now for the thing to put your games on. Since the Xbone has a 500GB hard drive i felt the need to 1UP it, so I did for the hard drive i found a Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM
The hard drive that i found is about $50 so for that price it would have been hard to say no.
OK so now for the thing that your going to cram this thing into. I picked out the Cooler Master Elite 350 ATX Mid Tower Case w/500W Power Supply.
This case come with a 500 watt power supply and is only $50 so it allows us to get a better GPU
The final price of this build comes out to $501.19 USD and that make this build great but at the same time easy on your wallet, so a win win for all of us.
WAIT!!!!!! what about Windows???
Well we don't need windows to play games any more thanks to Valves new OS. This OS is made for gaming and that's what this PC is make to do.
