Help with budget gaming setup.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I am beginning to save up for a gaming setup. I want to know what is a reasonable budget for one, and what i should buy with that budget. I have a Samsung series 7 chronos, Xbox 360, an ikea galant desk, and a TV. I am looking to buy a keyboard, mouse, headset, speakers, PS4, and two monitors. I am also wondering if a desktop would be worth the investment. Thanks.

$700 to $800 is a good and reasonable budget, and can include the peripherals if you choose your parts wisely. If you want my advice on parts to get, feel free to ask me, I am just a little busy right now, so it might take me a while.

Keep in mind this is pre built, so spend the saved money on games/upgrades. thumb.gif

1000 if your looking to do two monitors + speakers, headset, kb/m along with the system. Gives you a good 600 to work on just parts and there is alot of options for a powerful rig if you shop smart.
