Hey guys, I'm new here, been lurking for a bit. I am going to see if this deal on Craigslist works out on Sunday and if not, I am going to be selling my iPhone for $500. So with that $500, instead of trading for a computer I decided I wanted to build my own.
I've been wanting to do this for a while, but I'm only 14 and it's hard to come by money to build one. So this is my chance. I would have $500, that's it. That's without OS, monitor, keyboard, or mouse. I can use other ones.
Im looking for a decent gaming build for like GTA 4, Mafia II, BF3, some older and some of the newer ones out or coming out. I'm pretty good with computers and have had a couple gaming computers before from trades of craigslist. I know how to build them, and just seeking help to find the best i can get for $500.
I don't mind second hand parts at all, but I don't know if my dad would let me order them from the marketplace on here. So if you know any other places, that would be great. I would be ordering from NewEgg.
So if anyone could help me out, that would be amazing! Also, if possible I would like to Hackintosh this build, thats not needed but would be a plus.
