Help me Build a Computer!

  1. Hello everyone! I have chosen to use all my Christmas money and some other cash and build/ buy a custom built gaming PC.

    Budget: $600-700

    Requests:

    • Quad- core processor
    • Awesome case with lights (preferably blue)
    • 8 GB of ram
    • A nice and affordable graphics card
    I'll add more if I think of any.

    Right now I have been looking at custom built ones on Ebay.
    If you can help that would be great! Thank you.
    Feel free to ask for details if needed.

  2. I can't even fathom why you would want 32 GB of ram.
  3. i dont think that you can get what you want for $500

    Also you dont need 32G of ram you only need 8 or 16

  4. I guess I should settle for a lot less RAM.

  6. Sorry to say it but I don't think $500 is near enough. $800-1000 and you can get an awesome PC which you will enjoy a ton. Plus, by the time you have the money computer parts will be better!
  7. My friend managed to get a good PC for $500.

  8. Can you link it? Was it on sale? A good sale might net you an $800 PC for $500
  9. It was a custom build.
  10. I bet he got some of the parts on sale :p
    I'd go custom build Kman, but unless it's on sale, maybe you could take $800 and get a $1200 PC!

  12. So completely custom build?
    What do you guys think about ordering from CollegePC?
    Also thanks for all the help. I have no idea exactly what I'm doing.

  13. i would check out cyberpowerpc.com they have a lot of good deals going on right now and you could get a quad core amd processor and a 1gb graphics card and 8 gigs of ram for like 625 and the rest of the computer included lol

  15. I think your right Canucks. I think I'll do some talking with my dad about it soon and I'll modify the specs a little bit. Thanks!

  16. I would do some more research...

    Not to sound harsh or anything, but you are asking for a lot with a small budget...

    My computer was just near 1000$ to build...
    32Gb
    4Tb storage
    windows 8
    Intel i-7
    GTX 645 graphics

    You might wanna sit down and think about what you really want...
    Are you planning on doing huge games, or software such...
  17. I thought you got yours prebuilt? An HP?
