Default Re: Cheap-ish Gaming Computer Build!

And that's why people ask what price range you can afford...

I have put together a couple decent speced systems on newegg for $600-$700. Nothing terribly special. Building one for $700 you could probably get by fine. You won't meet the recommended requirements, but it will work.

You see if you start saving now by the time you get the 1.5k+ sandy bridge will probably be released or around the corner.

If i were you and if next your the game has not been released yet i would wait even more to 2k were you have very good options. Because new tech cost more and more money = more options
