Default Re: $400 Budget Build Anyone?

thanks Nukem I'm thinkin bout waiting for black-friday to see if I can get a deal otherwise I'm going with that setup. Also Grkbar hahaha im not broke i have money but the temptation to go over-budget is too strong & can always justify spending X more to get Y in return :P Thanks everybody. This is also a good thread for those looking for a budget build... until prices change again :laughing: :laughing:

The only thing I would suggest then if you have some extra money is replace the video card from what I gave you (which would work, but lacks performance) to something that has been a tried and true tested card... maybe a 7600GT, yes they are a little more expensive, but in the long run they can run newer games a WHOLE lot better than the 7300.

Newegg.com - EVGA 256-P2-N615-TX GeForce 7600GT 256MB 128-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 SLI Supported Video Card - Retail
or something that would be more future game proof?
Newegg.com - XFX PVT84JUDD3 GeForce 8600GT XXX 256MB 128-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 SLI Supported Video Card - Retail


Dell 4K S2817Q / Logitech Z-680 / Func MS3 Mouse / Corsair K70
NZXT Source 530 / i7-3770K / Corsair H100 / ASRock Z77 Extreme4 / SoundBlaster Recon3d
Samsung 850 PRO 512GB SSD/Seagate 1TB/2TB/WD 2TB
4x4GB Corsair Vengeance 2133 / PNY GTX 980 ti/ Seasonic M12II 850W
