Default Is it possible to get a computer decent for gaming with a budget of around 500$ to 600$

the most graphically demanding games I own are Gothic 3, Burnout Paradise, Prince of Persia (the one released in 2008, right before forgotten sands) and Napoleon Total War.
But I'm mostly playing gothic 3 atm, so something that could run that.

Is it possible to get a decent computer for gaming on a budget of around 500$ to 600$?

I was running Gothic 3 on a 300$ store bought with 125$ in upgrades, so I should at least be able to run Gothic 3 on it.

awesome, It'll be at least a month before I'll have the money to buy one, but I'll definitely refer to this when I do.

use it as a base, but things change quickly and im going to guess that better and different deals will be had. check in. but to answer your question: yes, a decent computer can be had for 5-600

yea that's what I was thinking, I'll probably change a few things, like I said it'll be at least another month before I'll get a new one. plus I may get the help of a friend, since I'm a bit of a newb when it comes to building pc's
