$700 Build. I need some help.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I need a new build pretty badly. My budget is $700, $750 at most, for a build with a monitor, keyboard, and mouse. I'm looking for a good gaming build that could last me a few years. I'm not looking to max out all the latest games, but to play them on high levels of quality would be nice.

I know $700 is quite the constraining budget, but I'm not looking for the best parts, or a 23" monitor at that. If anyone could help me out, it would be greatly appreciated.

miniITX, mATX, and ATX are all acceptable

Need a operating system? Those, like monitors, really throw a fork at budget builds.

Do you have ANYTHING you can carry over? or 100% everything new.

the monitor kills it for me. You could always pick through Tiger Directs DIY kits. Then just add a cheap monitor.

This I don't recommend unless you want to get stuck with a cheap PSU powering everything, or single channel RAM, or inadequate VRM motherboard, other nitpicks, when you can easily configure for the same price better components individually selected.

^This^ . . Infact I can not THIS this enough . . You will have better luck finding a quality Barebones on EBAY . . By the way QUALITY and EBAY rarely fit when its someone elses prebuilt PC. .

Peicemail is the way to go . . I EVEN BEAT THE RIG IN MY SIG! *(Minus the 630W and 6950)*(Replaced 480W and 5570)* $380 Shipped Newegg OPEN BOX!! Win 7 Included

I just peicemail'd a much much much better Rig for 450 Shipped *(No OS or Monitor or GPU. Monitor and OS doesnt matter as they were mine before.)*
