    Easy to build, if you have already done it before. new to building (putting everything in) it can be alittle stressful but im sure you could do it, if not..google it? lol. $500 would build you a Good computer. nothing super uber leet but something to play most games on High or so. AMD is Cheap but intel is better imo. Geforce is better then ATI and most of the time cheaper if you ask me. what kind of computer are you looking to build? what games and what settings do you wanna build for?

    This is my Spec. nothing Great but i can run most games on High. i think i put about $300-400 into it! already had the case and HD sitting around. CPU/motherboard/video card/ram and power supply all new.


    AMD FX-6100
    Random case (not worth alot, modded with star wars stuff tho)
    Mother board is M5a-78L-M LX plus
    Geforce 650 TI
    600W ATX ILG-500R2 power supply
    8GB DDR3-1333 Ram
    250GB HD (not SDD)

    If you want to run Battlefield 3 on Max or high settings and have 30 FPS. you need a Strong video card, i would say, AMD CPU, Geforce Video card, 8GB ram, 600W or higher power supply, Most new video cards should have a White Plug (DVI) Blue Plug is VGA. if you want it to look good, get DVI or HDMI! i say pick AMD CPU cause they are alot cheaper then intel...alot, i say pick Geforce because you get a good idea of what you can run from them! GeForce GTX 650 Ti | GeForce Mine, shows me what i run it vs an older card. I know Micro center has some good Bundle deals, like buy a CPU, motherboard, ram and get Blah amount off. never a bad idea. you can also check out Newegg.com - Computer Parts, Laptops, Electronics, and More! or TigerDirect.com - Electronics, Tablets, Phones, Office Supplies & Video Games, or even iBUYPOWER Gaming PC: Custom Gaming Computers and Laptops ebay would make stuff cheaper but a chance of it being broke or something like that.

    PS, if your computer screen only has say blue (VGA) im pretty sure you can buy a little thing that takes it from VGA to DVI.

    Ill post afew Links in alittle bit, the motherboard should have USB, unless you want aton more lol! never a bad thing! USB 3.0 could be around $20 or so. 2.0 USB could be less. Cracked windows 7? the pirate bay (google it) you burn it to a DVD and can boot from it. just gotta know how or google how AMD FX have like 3.5GHZ Six cores, they arent bad but most intels are better. but cost abit more....its its all about price tbh, i run pretty much everything on high or so. new BioShock game? was on High, no lag, looked awesome!


    something like this isnt a bad idea! bundle Pack! drop the SSD HD and get a video card. around $500 in all. would run alot better then what you have now. 8 core's, better then mine tbh :P grab a 650TI 1-2GB and you would be Set! even a little end card would still be pretty good, maybe even just use the one you have if you really want. that's always a good idea. Buy a Full bundle pack. sell your old stuff. list me your Old computer spec and i might be able to tell you how much you could sell it for.

    Ahh okay, yeah you can keep the laptop for sure, always a good idea to keep one around! Yes and no. You still would need a video card lol, everything else it has! i still think intel is more worth your time and money tho! way more of an upgrade imo. and intel/geforce work best with each other! if you dont think you have the money for 8 core's then this is the best 6 core! FX-6300


    Motherboards im not really that good at lol tbh if you wanna sale some money, buy a cheap board, i think the 6 core is AM3+ socket,

    Check this out. i think this would help you pick!
