What would you suggest?

So im in the market for a new Gaming PC. I have a budget of around $850-$950 (AUD). If anyone has any ideas please feel free to give me your input.

-I would prefer it if i could do some decent gaming.

-It was Quiet 

-Do some basic editing.


Thanks ^.^

I don't work in AUD, I work in pounds, but I presume that $850 is around £500, so here is what I would suggest:

Case:Cheapest Mid Tower case that you can get your hands on as long as it has front and rear fans.

Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-970A-DS3

CPU: AMD FX 8120

RAM: 8GB Corsair XMS3 @1600MHz and 1.5v

GPU: AMD Radeon HD 7770

Optical Drive: AD-5280S-0B

OS: Windows 7 (or Zorin OS(Linux))

HDD: Seagate Barracuda 500GB, or just get a cheap laptop drive. They tend to be the cheapest things you can buy.

PSU: Corsair CP-9020046

All added up, that costs £532.46. In Australia, you probably get better value. So, you could get a better case/motherboard/graphics card/CPU. And without Windows, you can definitely get the FX-8350 and a GTX-660 in your budget. Find them where they are cheapest and make sure that you shop arond.


Hope that has helped :)


This might be good. http://pcpartpicker.com/au/p/ysnI

There's no OS but Windows 7 should fit your budget anyway!

Front panel doesn't have USB3 oh well.  You can pick whatever case you like.  Good luck, etc.
