Captain Caboose

Recommended Posts

I am in need of assistance in getting a pc (likely custom build) that wont kill my wallet but isnt complete shit and won't takes 20 years to open google chrome(work part of the build).

 

In terms of gaming can atleast run TF2 on medium settings.

 

Budget: DO NOT kill my WALLET RIGHT NOW.

Can you reuse anything from your current computer? Case? hard drive? OS? (you'll either have to reuse the OS, use Linux, or *cough* visit a some ship...somewhere on the internet *cough*

 

860k ($70~) 

some A88x board ($50~)  

8gb of ram ($35~) 

case ($25~) 

HDD ($50~) 

R7 260x ($100~) 

PSU ($30~) 

Total: $400~

Anyway, depending on the specific games you intend to play:

860k ($70~)

some A88x board ($50~)

8gb of ram ($35~)

case ($25~)

HDD ($50~)

R7 260x ($100~)

PSU ($30~)

Total: $400~

 

Tanner found this build which can run TF2 @ lowest settings at 60 fps but with the extra 130 i have i was hoping i could max it out with a better graphic cards or something http://pcpartpicker.com/p/3x4MhM

Looks like pcpartpicker is down or something right now, but as a general thing maybe this is a build that should involve an APU due to the price point.

He's much better off spending the extra $50 (even if that means saving an extra couple of weeks) and getting something quite a bit better.

Now that pcpartpicker is back up I revised that list and came up with something that is within budget and will give you much better graphics, not to mention being quad core. http://pcpartpicker.com/p/Hfx2dC

It's still worth the $50 to go with something like this. Plus, if he can reuse his HDD, then it's within budget. '
