Small fish BIG ocean

post #1 of 22

Hello all smile.gif

I have recently decided that my Optiplex GX 270 is no where near good enough and have decided to build a new pc, that's where OC.net comes in.

I'm here to learn as much as I can and get as much assistance as possible (and maybe a few parts along the way).

Atm I have only £106 to build...well...to start to build my PC and I have no idea what I'm doing :/

So please, if anyone could point me in the right direction for help building my PC and finding the parts I need for a decent price, go right ahead smile.gif

Ok, you're going to get the same response that you got in your last thread.

That's not enough money to build a PC that will play games you want to play comfortably. Not sure if troll or just really persistent.

Well, reading some build logs might be a good start. You are also going to need to save up a bit more to build a decent PC.

I understand I need more money, what I'm asking is for where to start with what I have.

Building my PC is not going to happen all at once, this is likely going to be a process that will last over a few months, if not a year due to my financial situation.


Just thought I'd clarify on that smile.gif

Rules about building a capable gaming PC.

1. Never build it over a long period of time. Technology moves too fast.

Well in 25 days I shall start claiming job seekers allowance while I search for work, unfortunately there is not much where I live, and should be able to start adding more to my funds.


How much, in £, would be a good starting point for me to be able to build a decent gaming PC.
By decent I mean 2012 games on medium settings. Don't need ultra, I've been stuck with 2003 graphics for years, 2012 on medium will be just fine smile.gif

Well let me just throw some ballpark guesses at you.
I'm going to go as cheap as possible.

Case; $40.
MOBO;$90
CPU;$120
HDD;$80
PSU;$80
GPU;$240 (Hey, you said you wanted to play 2012 games on medium.)

£411, and that's American prices. It's more expensive over there if I recall.

Edit: I forgot ram, add another 20 pounds.

Add $100 for Windows as well.
