PC Advice

Post by S7 Ragnarok on Tue Jan 19, 2016 8:12 pm

So my husband and I are looking to build a gaming PC but we're kinda on a budget. Can't really afford more than a grand, anyone know where I can get some good deals?

Are you including monitor and peripherals in that cost?
$1,000 can build you a pretty awesome PC (alone).

https://pcpartpicker.com is a great resource. Their Build Guides are helpful, and immediately give you a good basic idea of price.

Here's an example build I saw on the 1st page:
https://pcpartpicker.com/guide/pWzKHx/800-gaming-pc-nvidiaintel

Solid build overall, even has a SSD.

That would leave you with a decent budget to get a monitor and still be at $1k.

Yeah that second link is a solid build. Another questions is if you want AMD or Intel for your CPU if you go AMD you can probably squeeze out a better GPU from either Nvidia or AMD.
