Post Help on New COmputer Build

Ok, so I need a pretty good computer that will run latest games on mid setting my budget is, less than three hundred dollars. I already have the monitor, keyboard, speakers, and a mouse. The point of this thread is so you guys can show me how to build my computer and the cheap, good supplies I can use. I need to make a computer that is good for documents and gaming not such hardcore gaming probally 1 or 2 games that are good.


Thanks For all the Support.

Wait: What games? Like are we talking age of empires, wow, crysis...?

Even with low end parts $300 is a little tight. Im assuming your american? (i ask because you would not be able to build one for under 300 in canada with an hdd)\

You need to know how to build it?....It would probably be easier to just look at a guide then one of us explain it. But honestly it is pretty straight forward.

your not gonna be able to do crysis with a $300 budget. Im not even sure if you would be able to with onboard video (because that is what you will need with that budget.)

Before i recommend some parts one more question: Do you need a monitor, keyboard, mouse, speakers?

You have to do onboard video. End of story. No Crysis, no how. Not for 300 bucks. But we can at least get WoW.

Newegg.com - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, Digital Cameras and more!
Newegg.com - Foxconn A7GM-S 2.0 AM2+ / AM3 Ready AMD 780G HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard - AMD Motherboards
Newegg.com - G.SKILL 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Desktop Memory
Newegg.com - Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 ST3160813AS 160GB 7200 RPM 8MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Hard Drive - Internal Hard Drives
Newegg.com - LG Black 22X (CAV) DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 16X DVD+R DL 22X (CAV) DVD-R 6X DVD-RW 12X DVD-RAM 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-R 32X CD-RW 48X CD-ROM 2MB Cache SATA 22X DVD±R DVD Burner - CD / DVD Burners
Newegg.com - CORSAIR CMPSU-400CX 400W ATX12V V2.2 80 PLUS Certified Compatible with Core i7 Power Supply - Power Supplies

$325.08, then you get 10 bucks off on a rebate. Includes shipping. Best you're going to get for 300 bucks. Couldn't get it any cheaper than that without using crappy parts.

You can double the RAM for an extra 12 bucks: Newegg.com - G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Desktop Memory

That case is the best you can get with that combo deal, 40 bucks and free shipping.

It'll run Crysis.. 10-15FPS if at 640x480, All Low (I would sadly know the experience) w/ an X2 4600+..

Yours will do like 12-17FPS which is playable by Crapsis' standards
