$350 gaming build suggestions!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello all!

I need some suggestions from the community about a $300-$350 gaming rig. Strictly going to be used for gaming!

Things that DO NOT need to be included:
  • GPU already owned
  • No OS
  • Monitor already owned

**Small form factor preferred!**

Thanks!thumb.gif

AMD Phenom II 955 & ASRock M3A770DE - $80
Corsair Vengeance RAM Set 1600Mhz 8GB(4x2gb) - $50
Corsair TX650 - $45
Samsung Super WriteMaster SpeedPlus - SATA DVD Writer - $12
CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus 76.8 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler ($19.99 @ Newegg)
Case: Zalman ZM-T1 ATX Mini Tower Case ($34.98 @ Outlet PC)
Storage: Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($59.98 @ Outlet PC)

Total: $301.95

This is the best I could do at a max budget of $350. It leaves a little room for you to choose the keyboard and mouse you want. You preferred SFF but with that kind of budget it's just too difficult to do. This is actually a pretty awesome deal here. and at $350 you will be hard pressed to do much better.
