Here is a good starting point in my opinion for a budget gaming rig. You will probably need to cut lots of corners and would be great if intel could be a choice but it will be difficult to keep price low.
Case/PSU - Rosewill R519-BK /500W PSU - 70$
Mobo - Gigabyte GA-970A-UD3 ATX - 100$
CPU- AMD Phenom ii x4 BE - 95$
Cooler - Stock - 0$
GPU - Asus Radeon HD 7770 1GB - 123$
Ram - 4GB Vengeance ddr3 1333 -24$ (probably can go higher or look for deals)
Optical Drive - Optional with digital games like steam not a huge need : Liteon ihos124 dvd/cd writer -17$
Hard Drive - WD Caviar Blue 1TB - 75$
OS - Windows 7 prem x64 - 91$

Total = Roughly 578$ I didn't include keyboard and mouse

Remember to set a goal and see where to cut corners, GPU is going to be key to your gaming rig.

And i agree about PSU that come with cases, but at those prices you have to live with it. You can look for single PSU but its hard to not combo
when money is in order.

We already have about 4 rigs under budget that will work. Plus you need 1600Mhz minimum these days, 1333 is too slow. Plus windows 7 OEM can be had for cheaper. Also which Phenom did you pick, not very clear. A UD3 probably wont be needed as he probably doesnt know how to OC.

well since games are normally more GPU intensive than CPU intensive, a fast dual core like a Sandy Bridge pentium, is a perfect fit for a 7770. Games are normally still only dual threaded.

That Windows you chose is an upgrade, meaning he would need windows vista, xp or 7 to use that, so thats no good.

You will learn, in time.

And I have no clue if he has anything saved, Im assuming that this budget is his saves money.
I think OP knew that I have make a mistake, It isn't a bid deal if I make a mistake and correct by a lad. That is fine to spot out so fast, but for $54 there are possiblities of getting windows 7 or 8 http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Latest-Microsoft-Windows-7-Professional-64-Bit-Full-SP1-Coa-Product-Key-/130872223867?pt=UK_Computing_Software_Software_SR&hash=item1e7897a87b http://www.ebay.com/itm/Windows-8-pro-/161002002666?pt=US_Operating_Systems_Software&hash=item257c7798ea. Big CPUs means nothing for OP gaming needs, graphics card is the way to go with gaming. I thought you new... 3 core is enough.

Its enough, but not ideal, that phenom is a good processor, dont get me wrong, but I personally would rather have 4 cores over 3.

And I personally will got with GTX 560ti, with either core 2 or core 3, this is how a basic gaming pc should be, that AMD is really not a good combination with quad core, if you will be playing games... had we know the games he will be playing, we could have suggest which gpu is best for him.

on pcpartpicker it listed win7 and win8 as the same price. Might as well get the newest version. If you dont like metro then there are ways to take care of that: http://www.windows8startbutton.com/


And yes the OS can be found for less money. thumb.gif Shop around, there are sales periodically.

If your a student an OS can be found dirt cheap or free https://www.dreamspark.com/Product/Product.aspx?productid=8

Lad, what type of games are you willing to play, after building this rig?
