Hey guys i wanted to make a PC since i hear PC versions of games are always better and cheaper. I have a budget of $600. D you guys know any good quality parts to buy from amazon. And what graphics card should i get?

600 is gonna be hard to work with, ud really have to go on a budget at the price, id say just stick to consoles or raise ur budget a bit :)



for a pc ur looking at needing a budget $800+ and if you do try and build a pc dont go to amazon.... go straight to newegg.

remember games look beter on pc than a console counterpart but a lot of games arent going to come out for or are delayed for pc.



since ATI now has the HD 5XXX series, I urge to install none but the HD 5970 Cross fire.

but that would mean getting a motherboard that can support GDDR5 which would definitely mean an intel i7 or i5 needed and the RAM would be DDR3 and you are looking at 800 watts of power supply.

so basically, I recommend that you save more and get a beast from the start, which can run games like it runs a web browser and would last rather longer.

all the best......



PLAYSTATION®3 is the future.....NOW.......B_E_L_I_E_V_E

wait a lil and raise the budget I guess...$800 would get you a lot more.. excluding the monitor ofcourse..

here is a thread from tom's hardware you might find useful

Doubt is not a pleasant condition, but certainty is absurd.

600$ isn't that bad if you already have things like a monitor, mouse, keyboard, and even better if you can use an older DVD drive or HDD.

Here we go, budget build for you:

Cheaper video card makes 534.92+shipping after MIRs, more expensive one makes 569.92+shipping after MIRs.

This isn't from Amazon, but Newegg's better anyhow.

This guy doesn't know what he's talking about at all (unless this is a fakepost, which it very well could be.) Listen to jefforange89.



"'Casual games' are something the 'Game Industry' invented to explain away the Wii success instead of actually listening or looking at what Nintendo did. There is no 'casual strategy' from Nintendo. 'Accessible strategy', yes, but ‘casual gamers’ is just the 'Game Industry''s polite way of saying what they feel: 'retarded gamers'."
