here is a great system for just over 500 dollars. All you have to supply is the CD drive, and deal with the stock amd cooler until upgrade.

Well, my budget is very small... $500 =/ Though, I WILL be upgrading over time. Thing is, I would Really like to have something I can start using straight away! And I know this isn't important, but... please don't roll your eyes! lol... I am DYING to have ... a nice case.


As for what I am looking for:

I would like to get into games such as Assassins Creed, etc. Also, I'd be using it as my home entertainment (movies, etc). Perhaps a bit of editing with like, Photoshop or whatever. Basically, I am looking for the impossible, probably! I keep having people tell me I'm cheap and if I expect to game, I need to save more money! That says to me that some people lack creativity! Thats one thing I do not lack. Only thing I lack is the time, and needed skills to get into building and whatnot. Which I DO plan to do! I LOVE to learn new things, being a Science/History, Etc .. Channel geek! My gf tells me she .. ugh, sorry got off topic there.


Also, I was told AMD is best for gaming, maybe thats just the preference of some, its what I assume anyway. I do not know much about all the differences. But I shall learn over time!

So yes, the impossible dream for me is to have myself a nice semi-gaming computer, for $500. It will be difficult but I am up for the challenge. I'm just running out of time and its getting on my nerves. =)

Apologies if I left anything out, or strayed. I've got a difficult time getting to the point most times.

Your best bet is to ask in a specific section as this is just the meet and greet area.


But here I will give it a go.

For 500 you can get more then you'd think, but this depends. Do you need a monitor, Win 7, mouse, keyboard? Also if you only have 500 and want something that will last you for a while best bet is to save up more. 1k will get you something GREAT.

AMD is best for VALUE. Their processors aren't as fast as Intel's but a lot less expensive.


If you don't know the best site to buy from is www.newegg.com. GREAT place, I can't think of one person on this site that hasn't ordered from them.

Then you just have to decide what your maximum budget is and this is important POST your build before you buy it so we can tell you things you can improve upon or etc.

You can always PM me or anyone really.

Oops! Sorry, I currently have:

Monitor (32" HDTV 1920 x 1080)

DVD Drive

Keyboard/mouse

I could MAYBE use the HDD I have in this current piece of rubbish, it's only 69 GB, but it will do for now!

Thanks again, folks!

EDIT* I also have Windows 7 Ultimate disc.

I would say go with that build i linked. I only did the phantom because I saw you said you really wanted to have a nice case to call your own. You would be extremely proud to own a phantom they are amazing cases.
