$500 PC Build help

Buy my mixtape fam

Recommended Posts

So, I need some help, as I'm at my absolute wit's end with this piece of shit that passes itself off as a "computer".  My dad is great at building computers, just not so much picking parts from scratch, and I'm sure not, so I'd like some help designing a build for myself.


Budget: $500


What's necessary:

Running GTAv

Running most modern day games

Not being a ball of lag


What I'd like:

To be able to run GTAV, and at highest settings possible (my bar isn't very high for the settings, though)

8 GB of ram


What I don't need:
Any addons, i.e. mouse, monitor, 

Hard Drive (I have a 250 gb samsung ssd)


My dad also has a 960 gtx lying around, although he might use it for himself, so that's questionable. I'm okay with sacrificing certain things like having an ugly case for better performance. Thanks in advance
