I have been looking at making a custom PC for gaming, it doesn't need to be super fast, I don't have to play BF3 with the graphics all the way up. I'm on a very tight budget and was wondering if anyone here could assist me with choice of parts. I use newegg.com for choosing the parts (have not purchased them yet because I do not have the money yet). I was hoping to cut the cost by a little, by using an old...medium case, I guess is what it is, to use for the upgrading. I've already cleaned it out of all the older parts and now its just an empty shell. Its a Compaq Presario SR1023WM case, very old I know, but it is the biggest case i have. For the parts I'm looking at getting, I would like to find an AMD equivalent of an Intel i7 processor, only 4gb RAM (any brand as long as it is DDR3), an NVIDIA GTX 550 Ti 1gb, I would have to get an HDMI to VGA adapter for my monitors. For motherboards, anything will do as long as it will support what I'm looking at getting. 500 watt powersupply (any brand). I won't need alot of memory but I would like the high write speed so I was looking at getting a 300gb (at the most) HDD 7200rpm. I can salvage a DVD drive from one of my other computers, I think its a 16x. Not sure if I am missing anything needed, if I am please advise me of what I need (yes I know I need an OS, I will probably use linux until I can get a copy of windows 7 ultimate). Any information will help me, I have a very low budget and I'm getting tired of playing games on integrated graphics and trying to record video, it just doesn't work.
