    A computer build for $400 or less

    Hello fellow MPGH members,
    So I've had my Dell Inspiron 530S for about 7-8 years now and I think it's time for a change. I can't play any great games with Windows Vista or 1GB of RAM nor can I do anything without it freezing or lagging. So If anyone can use ************ (pc-part-picker)that'd be great. I'm going with a $400 price point or less because as a high school student I don't have much to offer so give it your best shot if you can. I'm willing to budge a bit from $400 and probably go $10-$20 higher but nothing more please. Thank You for all the help!


    Edit: Build will be mostly used for gaming/homework. Must be able to stand games such as WoW or LoL on low-medium settings. Sometimes high. NO LIQUID COOLINGI'm afraid I might fry my whole setup

    Lol don't worry the LC will prolly take up a quarter of your build.

    Sorry but for $400 you can only get maybe 2 or 3 peices not to mention if you want an okay graphics card that will cost you about $100 Min.

    If you want a computer that can run all the new games at decent graphics your budget would have to be aroun 800-1300. IMO

    if you want cheap go with amd. You should be able to get a decent build for 800. These days you need to build your own pc from scratch to get your moneys worth.

    Go on pc part picker and add /p/2hDU8 onto the end of the URL
    Thats what I have, bf4 on ultra > 30fps, never lower. Not $400 but take away windows, get it for cheaper on ebay, different psu (cheaper one, not recommended but if you need to), and the network adapter.
    Good luck!
