Budget intel gaming rig

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
hey guys, I know that the words budget and intel don't seem to fit well but let's see what we can do to make this work.

since I suck at making builds and you guys seem to do EXTREMELY well at putting together builds,can you help me put put together an intel build at 500$ or a little over if it's worth it?

I already have a gtx 560 ti,HAF 912 case,hyper N 520,and windows 7 so we can leave that out.

thanks alot for the help!!!

Not sure how good your credit score is but CITI credit cards are having a special (dividend card) spend $500 and get $200 cashback. Citi I used that to upgrade my computer just recently and was in the same boat as you are I don't know your age, but if you aren't old enough you can ask parents.
