    On a budget

    Hey guys,

    I may have a cheap budget($600) but i want to get the most out of a new pc. All my requirements are is that it needs to have a great cooling system and a nice way of running fps. I'm not really a computer kinda guy, i just change the RAM for my friends sometimes. I can go a bit higher but prefer not to so that i may buy better gaming equipment.

    I currently have a laptop from 2005 which i can't argue with because it runs CS:GO pretty decently, but i got a new monitor and it doesnt run well fps wise on the big screen of my new benQ monitor.

    What kind of games are you looking to play? for $600 you can get a pretty good PC but don't be expecting to play BF4 at Ultra with over 60 FPS.

    On a side note, looks like it's time for me to make a new thread

    Case: NZXT Tempest 410
    Mobo: Asus M5A97 LE R2.0
    CPU: AMD FX-6300
    GPU: AMD Radeon 7850 2GB
    RAM: Corsair Vengeance 8GB @1600MHz
    HDD: Seagate Barracuda 1TB @7200RPM
    PSU: Corsair CX600


    This is a personal secondary build I put together, and it's absolutely incredible for the price. I paid about $625 for it, but it can be had for about $570 on today's market. You'll be able to max every modern game and get at least 60 FPS, even in Crysis:






    When the earth is changed into a humid dungeon,
    In which Hope like a bat
    Goes beating the walls with her timid wings
    And knocking her head against the rotten ceiling;
    When the rain stretching out its endless train
    Imitates the bars of a vast prison
    And a silent horde of loathsome spiders
    Comes to spin their webs in the depths of our brains,
    All at once the bells leap with rage
    And hurl a frightful roar at heaven,
    Even as wandering spirits with no country
    Burst into a stubborn, whimpering cry.
    — And without drums or music, long hearses
    Pass by slowly in my soul; Hope, vanquished,
    Weeps, and atrocious, despotic Anguish
    On my bowed skull plants her black flag.

    ​I have the exact same problem. No matter how I wire it, only one of the front fans works.
    When the earth is changed into a humid dungeon,
    In which Hope like a bat

    And knocking her head against the rotten ceiling;

    $600 is a lowish budget for a gaming PC. If you want a good PC for gaming you will need to pitch in a bit more.

    Get this, essentially (change some things depending on current sales) but swap out the 212 EVO for the older 212 PLUS. Same shit, lower cost.
