Hi! So Im trying to build my first pc. And I dont know what to choose. I´am trying to be in the 500-600 euro price range. I have these two pc´s picked out. I´am only going to play games with this PC. I have my old laptop for school stuff . The games I´m mainly play : Planetside 2, CS:GO, Crysis 2, TF2 and Minecraft.
518 euro PC:
CPU - Intel Core i3-4130 MB - MSI B85-G41 MATE RAM - 8GB DDR3 Kingston 1600mhz GPU - Geforce GTX650 2GB HDD - WD 1TB 7200rpm Case - Cooler Master K280 CPU Cooler - Arctic Freezer 7 Pro Rev.2
602 euro PC:
CPU - Intel Core i5-4430 MB - MSI B85-G41 MATE RAM - 8GB DDR3 Kingston 1600mhz GPU - Geforce GTX650 TI 2GB HDD - 1TB 7200rpm Case - BitFenix Shinobi CPU Cooler - Arctic Freezer 7 Pro Rev.2
I can´t pay any more because I have to buy a monitor (150 euros) and OS (80 euros) also. So my question is. Dose the 84+ euros in price matter much or can they handel games the same ? The most i´m worried about is Planetside 2, will I be abled to play it in low-medium settings 1920x1080?
PS: I forgot to add but the PSU is 450W Corsair 80+.
I need some help again. I talked to my mum and she could help me with 50-75 euros. So I found some awsome deals and I calculated that if I upgrade my CPU to i5 4570 and GPU to GTX 650 Ti Boost. The price would be 659 euros. Is it worth it to add the extra 60 euros for that kind of a upgrade. Or should I buy the 602 euro one and just get something else with that 60 euros?
If you're trying to put together a gaming build with your budget, then I would strongly recommend you get an AMD CPU. It's going to be cheaper and it's going to allow you to get a better graphics card. Not to mention that it'll work just fine for gaming. See if you can afford an FX-6300, FX-8320, or FX-8350.
I usually don't recommend any graphics card that has something at the end of its name just to claim that it's faster like "superclocked" or "boost," but in this case, the 650 TI Boost is actually worlds better than the vanilla 650 TI. Definitely go with the boost verison, unless you end up getting a cheaper CPU and getting a better graphics card.
On a side note, computer components must be really expensive in Europe, because you could probably get a better system than that for $600 USD.
PC parts are expencive in europe. If you would get the 600 dollar settup I´d have to pay 700+ euros fot that same spec PC. And thanks for the AMD build note. I´ll have a look and see what AMD has to offer for 500-650 euros.
