Friend wants a budget PC build, help please (:

post #1 of 32
Thread Starter 
Alright guys, so he wants this as -budget- as possible, granted he wants to run some decently demanding games (BF4, COD Ghosts, DayZ) And he wants to run them at -good- graphics but not 100% maxed out, he has no preference AMD vs Intel so AMD being the cheaper solution and honestly having a bit more brute force I think that will suit him, but any build ideas with -total- prices included if you could do so would be amazing guys, thanks in advance and let me know if you need to know any more!!


don't need to include any peripherals, just the PC alone(:

Pry less than a grand, but just go with what will run the games and then we can fine tune from there, see how much he can cringe lol.

Just figure, running COD/BF4 at average settings than can at least look like a console or maybe worse but hit 60fps safely.

I like this, I sent him the PartPicker list so we will see what he thinks, it should do everything he wants and for a pretty damn good price for what he wants to run.

I like this list, with the exception of going 1 lower on the graphics to save some money, potentially for the heatsink GTX had mentioned he forgot.
Edit: i would like to swap the amd card for nvidia just because nvidia drivers are often times more noob friendly compared to amd drivers.
