Hello my little brother wants to buy a gaming PC for a max budget of €500. I would really appreciate it if you could help us out. Please post the builds in €.
Hey just some initial questions before we start,can you specify
- What kinds of games
- Does this include peripherals
- Is it a case that you'd like it to be more dependent on GPU over CPU where you can allocate a large portion of the money towards a better graphics card and have an average run of the mill CPU
- Can you allocate parts from an older PC
Thanks for the fast reply!
Here the games he wants to play: Battlefield 4, CoD: Ghosts and minecraft. (Probably GTA V too, if it ever comes out for PC)
The build doesn't include peripherals, we will buy those separately.
I do not know what is faster, a good GPU or a good CPU.
We cannot allocate parts from an older PC because we sold those.
Thanks in advance.
Oops forgot about the OS, he wants windows 7 if you can find that with the build it's fine.
May I suggest:
CPU: FX-6300 = £84.40 now on Amazon
Motherboard: MSI 970A-G43 = £54.98 on Amazon
RAM: G.Skill Ripjaws-X 8GB 1600Mhz = £52.99 on Amazon
GPU: VTX3D AMD Radeon R9 270X X-Edition 2GB = £159.99 on Amazon;
or Sapphire Dual-X Radeon R9 270X OC = £160.59 (or any other cheap r9 270x that you can find).
PSU: Corsair Builder Series CX 500 Watt = £43.23 on Amazon;
or Cooler Master G-Series G600W = £46.24 on Amazon
Case: Xigmatek CCC-AD34BT-U01 Asgard 382 Mesh Midi Tower = £36.99 on Amazon
HDD: Seagate Barracuda 1TB Hard Drive = £48.47 on Amazon
DVD drive (optional): Samsung 24x SATA Black = £15.60 on Amazon
Total = £497
I don't think Win7 can fit into a £500 build without too great of a compromise...
Thats £ not €, so your £80 over budget.........good luck! ;)
oops :) I could have sworn it said £. well, hopefully he can find similar stuff for a similar price in euros.
Thanks for the ideas and maybe i'll just save a little bit more money to get a €580 build including win7. Maybe i can save some money on some parts too. But if anyone has a nice build in euros, you are free to post! :)
